Advantages: Small and easy to use
Disadvantages: Not touch screen and not most up to date
I really did enjoy having this phone and would choose to have it again over my iPhone as its smaller but still clear so you can see things well on the screen. The main thing I loved about the blackberry was the buttons. Although they are quite small I found it easy to use rather than touch screen phones and as it was a qwerty keyboard so i knew exactly where all the buttons were.
I also thought the picture quality was great on this phone and it was easy to scroll through the images, set them as backgrounds and even send them to people.
On the blackberry an application I enjoyed the most was a colour app which was free. This let you create a different colour flash for each person when they call or text you. I loved this because if my phone was across the room and I had a text but couldn't see who it was from the flash indicated to me who it was. This is also good for when you miss seeing your phone light up when getting a text. The flash would stay until the message had been read.
Everyone says having a blackberry you should have blackberry messenger. This is ideal if you want to pay the £5 a month to have this. I never used mine as none of my friends has blackberry phones so I wouldn't say it's an essential thing to have on a blackberry unless you wanted it of course.
Everyone seems to have a problem with the buttons on this phone being to small. I didn't find this the case and enjoyed having buttons rather than touchscreen all the time. However one issue with buttons is that you cannot be discreet when typing as each button clicks. This can get irritating for other people sitting around you if you like to text all the time.
My blackberry lasted the most out of all my phones I have had and is still working today after many years however I don't use it due to not having a sim. Most phones I've had have needed to be sent for repairs or change of screen because it is made from glass, I have never had any problems on my blackberry and that's why I think it's the best phone I've had.
Summary: This was by far my favourite phone and I have had no problems with blackberry's in the past
