Advantages: Very reliable, long battery live, good mp3 player.
Disadvantages: Poor camera, lack of games.
This phone has never let me down. The screen is afforded the protection that you might expect from a flip-phone, it is light yet surprisingly durable.
The shape fits well in the hand, the keys are a reasonable size (though the fish-scale key design does look a little toy-like).
The main menu is presented with easily interpretable icons and browsing them is easy and efficient. The interface is very attractive in my opinion.
It seems to be particularly apt at picking up signals and has an incredible battery life of up to 7 days (in my experience).
The MP3 player met all of my requirements and is my favorite aspect of this phone. The standard package comes with a 256 mb memory card (which can be upgraded or switched out) as long as you don't want to carry your entire music collection with you, the size is reasonable.
You can play through tracks in order or randomly, compile your own playlists, and switch tracks using the small orange buttons on the side of the phone (meaning you don't have to open it to switch to a different track).
Two simple games are provided; a puzzle slider and a spin-off of tetris with music notes, along with free trial demos.
The camera is somewhat of a disappointment, but I have never used the phone for that purpose anyway.
The phone supports quadband so it can be used from anywhere in the world.
The handset is available in white or black as standard. I personally own the black one.
The price is a treat too, it's now available at around 40 pounds from most service providers making it a real bargain.
Summary: Affordable and reliable!
