Dear Mr Vodafone, I only wanted 1!
Member Name: sam_toland
Advantages: Large screen and keypad, very strong
Disadvantages: Greasy back, quite heavy and a bit bulky
I sent off for this phone as a christmas present to myself as my previous phone had just been misplaced at the bottom of a pond, not great. I chose this phone because the price was great and at the time it came with a free 1GB SD card, bargain. When it arrived it turned out that vodafone had accidentally sent me 3 handsets instead of just the one, so naturally things were looking good from the beginning.
This i just a bog standard slide up phone, its a decent size and the screen is quite large, making it easy to text and read. It has a rubbery style coating on the back which means that if you have greasy hands you get huge grease marks on the back of your phone which are quite hard to get off, not a great look!
For a very cheap phone it is packed full of goodies, such as interesting sounds when you slide it up or press a button (which of course get disabled about a day later) and some great games come as standard. The camera on it is also a very good quality considering the price of the handset. The keypad on the phone is also a very good size, each button being very easily accessed and used, and the sliding mechanism is faultless.
The main thing I remember about all of these phones is that they were completely indestructible. I mean boy did I put this thing through its paces, constantly dropping it down flights of stairs onto concrete floors and sitting on it etc and never the less it always worked perfectly. Once it even went in the washing machine! Result? It was so clean it looked brand new, and still worked as if it were.
All in all I probably would recommend this phone to anyone else who has also misplaced their phone in some very bad place and needs a cheap one fast as overtime this handset proved itself to be sturdy and quite enjoyable to use. It don't look half bad either!
Summary: Alright, but not quite permanent phone material
