Advantages: Very good for texting and has a large screen.
Disadvantages: Lack of features such as a camera and not particulalry stylish.
Before I upgraded this was my primary business phone for over a year. I found it to be very easy to use and delivered all that I wanted from a phone.
The battery life is excellent which is ideal for a phone like this however I found that the fact it didn't have a speakerphone was really quite frustrating. The built in keypad is an excellent feature and is easy-to-use, when it is dark it lights up so that it is easy to use.
The screen size is very big and is colourful making it really nice to use when sending messages. When reading lengthy messages it is possible to see the full text which is a very good feature.
I also really like the password lock feature which allows you to store all of your passwords in one place. This stops you from having to remember it and so is a really good application. I also really like the Memo pad app which is great for writing down reminders etc. There is also a calendar application which is useful when planning your week. You can password protect your phone which is another excellent security feature about this phone.
I don't think that it looks particularly aesthetically pleasing and I think that it lacks some features such as a camera. The internet was also very slow on it however, for a phone where texting is a priority this is a great phone and I would recommend it.
I hope this review was helpful and thank you for reading!
Summary: A useful phone for basic needs however, it is lacking some features.
