      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This phone makes one bold claim, to be the world thinnest phone. It does this, but not much else.

      There is only one reason anyone buys this phone. You do not buy this phone and as an afterthought observe that it is quite thin.

      For someone who doesn't want to browse the web, and doesn't care what an app is, this isn't a bad phone. If you simply want something that can make phone calls, but can go unnoticed in your pocket there isn't much better than this. At 5.9mm thick this was, and still is 2 and a half years later, the worlds thinnest mobile phone.

      This is a pretty decent bragging point, as in a day where everyone seems to own an iphone, you often only have to hold your phone in order to draw remarks as people stare at it in wonder.

      In fact in its mission to be thin and comfortable in the pocket this phone is almost too good. A quick pat down of the pocket might not confirm that you have your mobile phone, and I myself have had moments of panic having thought I lost it. In fact on one occasion I spent 10 minutes frantically searching all my pockets several times, before finding my phone had hidden itself inside my wallet.

      Despite being so thin the phone is surprisingly solid, and so you will quickly be able to put aside any concerns that it will snap in half. That is not to say the phone is flawless, the battery cover has been reduced to such a thickness that the result is very bendy, and not really securely fastened, and can detach itself on occasion.

      The only shortcoming resulting from the thickness is the battery life. The battery itself is only about 4mm thick, which means a charge every few days may be needed even with light use. This may not be a problem, but if you rack up serious minutes then this won't be an ideal choice.

      The internal memory is quite limited so it won't be doubling up as an mp3 player. In terms of features this phone is very light; it has a camera and not much else. It does however have a really nice puzzle game which involves a rabbit eating carrots.

      My one frustration was that when using the d pad, since the keypad is very smooth, and the keys aren't that big either, was it was quite easy to end up pressing the middle button, and cancelling out of what you were doing.

      Functional and thin

      Ok phone - I was looking for a phone which was incredibly thin and would fit in my pocket. This definitely met that criteria .. cameria is alright quite difficult to use. The functionality is all I would expect from a Samsung and is great. Draw backs would be its a bit uglier than I would expect from a samsung and looks a bit like a mans phone yet fits perfectly in my pocket which is clearly a massive benefit as thats what I was looking for.
      Visually though i think i prefer the thin Nokias - this ohone is ok - but not a design classic. Functionally is ok but wish I had signed up to 12 month rather than an 18 month contract so could switch to a new one sooner!! Functional and thin would be the overally recommendation on this one though!! Hope thats of some help!
