Advantages: Eco friendly, good features
Disadvantages: No multimedia cable, no standard headphone socket
This phone is described as an eco friendly phone, as it is made from recycled materials. This isn't the primary reason I bought the phone, however if it is possible for phones to be more environmentally friendly then I'm all for it.
I chose this phone as despite the craze for iphones, blackberrys and androids, I was merely looking for a standard phone with pretty basic requirements and that had buttons. There seems to be a huge decline in phones that provide buttons and a large range of touchscreen phones available which isn't what I was after.
The cost of the phone at the time I bought it was over £100, however it is available online for a lower price.
The design of this phone is quite simplistic and it looks quite smart, it's pretty slim in size and lightweight. I feel the size of the phone is just right, it's easy to handle and fits in my pocket easily.
Features of this phone include a 5 mega pixel camera, for which there is a camera shortcut button on the outer of the phone, wi-fi, bluetooth, gps, radio. There is easy access to the internet and social networking sides.
The phone comes with a set of headphones, however the quality of these aren't great. Unfortunately, a downside of this phone is that there isn't a socket for standard headphones. This isn't such an issue for me as I don't use the phone as an mp3, however it would be an added feature.
Another downside of this phone is that there isn't a multimedia cable provided to enable you to transfer files/photos to the pc. There is a hd slot so files could be transferred this way, however I'd much prefer to use a cable.
Overall I have had this phone for over a year now, which is a good length of time for me as I'm really bad with phones. I have dropped this phone numerous times and it still works which is great.
If you're looking for a standard phone with a keypad then this phone is fairly decent with only a few flaws.
Summary: A decent phone with buttons!
