I have now had this phone for about 2 years and i can't imagine what i would've done without it. Although it isn't the most recent smartphone and so missing extra bits that the iphone 4 has (such as video camera, flash, multitasking and siri), it is still a very good smartphone to have. I find that the overall look of the phone is fantastic with an elegant looking black back. However this is plastic which takes some of the quality out of it but is still a very sturdy phone. The touchscreen is extremely responsive which makes it extremely easy to navigate around the apps (applications). The camera is also very good and useful to have with the ability to zoom. If you already have a camera then the iphone isnt a good equivalent for good quality shots but is handy for quick picture taking. What i really love about this phone is the intergrated iPod in which you can listen to songs, watch videos, tv programmes and movies. You can also make playlists to have a list of songs that you want to be played at a speciic time. The iTunes app that comes with the phone allows you to purchase songs, films, music videos and downloads them straight onto your phone. All you have to do is provide the money! The app store is also one of my favourites due to the 100,000 plus apps that are available on anything you could want from games with great graphics to apps to help you buy a kitchen. The vast range of genres is covers is fantastic and the amount of free apps in great. The texting on the iPhone is also great with a qwerty keyboard and the ability to turn this landscape or portrait. It really does speed up texting time. Calling someone is also very effecient as all you need to do is scroll to the person you want, touch them and you are calling them.
Overall, i would definately recommend this phone to anyone wishing to make the switch to a smartphone or to an iPhone as it is extremely simple to use and is cheaper than the latest apple iPhone.
Summary: if you want to switch to a smartphone this is definately the phone to have
