Advantages: able to listen to radio, music
Disadvantages: colour, very heavy
I had this mobile on a contract and liked the look of it on the internet but as soon as I received it couldn't wait until the end of my contract so could get a new one. The picture makes it look better than what it actually is.
It comes in orange. Not many phones now come in such a hideous colour. I was scared to take it out of my bag when it rang. And also ended up have muscle arms from using it because it is so heavy and bulky.
On the top of the phone just above the screen there is what seems like a bar attached to the phone. Never worked out what this was for. I think it is so you can put some rope around it and put it round your neck. Not something I thought about wanting to do.
Apart from being really bulky there is not alot that can be done with this phone however it is great if you just want a phone to be able to ring and receive calls and listen to music. As it has a radio and you are able to listen to songs that have been downloaded onto it through headphones or through the speakers on the phone. The speakers are not the best though and if you turn the sound up quite a bit the volume sound becomes distorted. Not to be replaced with a stereo. I also did not really like the sound of walking around the streets with the music blarring. So quite often I would listen to the radio through the earphones. This is the only way to listen to the radio as it has an antenna bought into the earphones.
There is a camera with this camera and it is not a bad camera. Not the best and again not to be replaced by a digital camera but takes quite decent pictures in the daylight. Not worth taking night time pictures because even though has a light the pictures still come out really dark. I found. The camera is only 1.3 mega pixel. Alot of newer cameras have at least 5 megal pixal.
This camera can also be used to play games, although I didn't use for this purpose.
In my personal opinion I would not choose this phone because of the following reasons:
1. Not something you want to show off to your friends
2. Very heavy and bulky
3. Looks ugly
4. Camera not very good
5. Only comes in a horrible looking orange
Summary: An ugly looking phone not worth buying
