A blast from the past

Advantages: Robust, and very good at being a phone
Disadvantages: Not many features
My very first mobile phone was a siemens a50, in blue, as seen in the picture. It was a hand me down from my mom when I first went to high school (and had to get a bus, I took it just for safety). At the time most people had Nokias, but I had an old A50.
When I got this phone, colour phones had come out (my parents didn't really want to give me something expensive as a first phone), and this fit the bill perfectly. It was cheap, and only had a colour screen. Yet it still had the most legendary game of them all, snake. It also had a battery life that would just last forever (but back then, I was not a heavy user, 1 call and 2 texts a month maybe?).
This thing was incredibly robust. It was a fairly "rough" school I went to, so my phone did get "nicked" and chucked around a bit, never really taking any damage. I mean seriously, it was thrown from one end of the playground to the other and only came out with a few scratches. This was one tough phone.
I eventually traded in the phone for a newer phone after 4 YEARS! of having this phone (an motorolla W377, which I have a separate review about) as it got me £10 off it or something like that. Honestly I can say this is one cheap, well made phone. It lacks features, and is only a black and white screen, but as a basic telephone, for texts and phone calls, you can't really go wrong with this. I wouldn't really pay more than £10 for one though, old Nokias are quite robust too! I can't really think of anything else interesting to say about this phone, because it didn't do very much, but everything it did worked very well!
Summary: Just a basic old fashioned phone
