      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great for a music fan

      I have had this phone for a while now, and I must say it is one of the best phones I have ever owned.

      This is a black flip up phone, as far as I know this is the only colour available, but I do prefer black, as dirty marks do not show up.

      Now this phone has many different functions, which I will list throughout my review.

      To start with it has a massive memory, which is why it is more of a Walkman phone, it stores lots of songs that you can either get through blue tooth or transfer from your computer. I currently have over 60 songs on my phone, yet still plenty of memory, so this is great if you like to listen to music. And the battery life lasts ages I usually charge it every 2-3 days and I use my phone a lot so I find that really good.

      How to answer the phone. Now you can either click on the answer button, or simply enough just flip your phone up, either way will work.

      Ok now for a list of what your phone has.
      Games - this has several games built in, but you do have to pay for most of them after a few games. I got 2 games that I never had to pay for.

      Radio - this as it says is just a radio loll; you do have to insert your headphones to be able to access it.

      Walkman- this plays the songs from your music that you have saved to play list, with or without headphones.

      This also has things such as an alarm clock, calendar, where you can set reminders on your phone, which I find very useful. Timer, stopwatch, calendar. It also has a light so that if you need to look for something in dark just switch it on and it helps quite a bit.

      The contact list is very simple to use, but the thing that I find annoying is that if you put someone in under home then also store them as mobile number, it puts the mobile number first every time you want to ring, so if you want to ring their house number you have to go into the contact and open it up and scroll down. I found it easier just to put them down twice.

      The text messaging is also very simple, the screen is a good size so easy to see, you can either type with the dictionary or without, and you also have templates and smileys.

      Also if you go into my stuff, then down to applications you will find face warp, well this is so funny to do with your mates, you just take a picture, and then the face warps, which warps them into some funny faces, I find it hilarious some of them I have seen.

      The camera I find is really good, the pictures come out very clearly and, you can have it on night mode for them dark places, and also you can use the light. You can change picture size, to a bigger one or smaller, this also has a self timer so if you want a family picture you can without asking people to take the picture for you. It also has a black and white facility.

      The video is of great quality and great sound; this has most of the same features as the camera except a small few. I would say this works as good as any video camera.

      The reception on this phone is brilliant, i have never lost my signal, or had a poor reception, but i do suppose that can depend on the area that you live also.

      This phone has many great features and is really a must have, so far I have never had any problems at all with it, not even a chip or a scratch on the screen, which I normally do with my phones, so the screen is quite durable. My phone is due up for renewal in June but I really do not know if I want to change it or not, that is how good this phone is.

      I will say it is a bit bigger than some phones, but I would say it has to be bigger to fit in everything that it comes with; I would definitely recommend this to buyers any day.
