Good phone but has a number of shortcomings

Sony Ericsson Spiro
Advantages: Small, light, easy navigation
Disadvantages: can freeze up and be a bit slow
This phone is great for those who aren't constantly glued to their handset. With simple text and calls and the camera/video and walkman feature it's and easy phone to use on paper.
In my experience though there are a few shortcomings: On numerous occasions the phone tends to freeze up, it feels quite slow getting through menus and texting using predictive text can be quite tedious and definately slows down the process (even once it has saved some of your own words)
I also get frequent problems with the signal, the phone will look as if it has full signal but will display an 'emergency calls only' warning at the top of the screen.
The camera is't great and takes a lot to get a decent picture that isn't blurred but I've not used it that often.
I bought the phone but it didn't come with the cable to link it to the computer - essential for using the walkman features - I was told I had to buy this seperately.
Having said that the menus are easy to navigate and the battery life is really good- at the moment charging it maybe 2/3 times a week.
For quite a cheap phone it lives up to most expectations.
Summary: Good phone for those not glued to their handset 24/7 - would be good first phone
