MY REVIEW OF THIS PHONE:
Some peope say that blackberry has seen the best of it's market, and that there is now a decline in the reliability of the blackberry. They say blackberrys have had their time and the majority of the market is now swaying away from blackberry phones as a result of this.
Having recently treated myself to an upgrade from old blackberry, i did some thotough research before I purchased this item. I was actually in the frame of mind that I was not going to buy another blackberry, yet whilse looking at online reviews, and then chatting to several different stores, i decided i really loved this phone, You can do so much on it and the specifications, in my humble opinion it is a fabulous phone and I totally love it.
I spend a large proportion of my day using my mobile (I am a very sociable person lol) I Just LOVE this phone for that! I send a lot of texts, and use social networking sites like twitter and facebook a lot too. There are enldess apps for this phone, and My favourites - well no prizes for guessing - facebook and twitter :)
There is also some very nifty photo editing software that I also live it is great to be able to edit photos on the go.
The mp3 is fab, great quality sound, plays well doesnt drain the battery too quickly ( I found this issue a pain with my previious older blackberry) BUt this one has a good battery life on it.
The handsfree option is great too, it gives a clear crips sound, none of this dodgy crackling handsfree quality. No cutting in and out when on handsfree either.
I love the camera in this , whilst other phones may have camera's wih more pixels, i find this more than adequate to meet my needs of snapping anything and everything that moves, and anything and everything that doesnt too come to think of it! And there is plenty of memory for sotring all those videos photos and music songs onto. OF course you also have the option of buying a larger capacity memiery card as well.
I have found tihs phone to be robust, and yes I have dropped it on numerous occasions, but i guess most people DO drop their phones at some point or other, i just seem to be more clumsy than most.
The touch screen is reliable and easy to use though can seem over sensitive at first, but you do soon get used to it, and i actually use a stylus a lot of the time anyway. It is easy to get to and scroll though the menu options, none of this difficult seaching all over the place to find a specific accesorie etc.
It is fairly slimline and lightweight. I dont have any issues at all with this phone other than I use it too much lol
The slight drawback is the images ont he screen do often appear pixelated. Obviously there are far better phones out there, but they cost an awfull lot more.
You can get some good deals at the moment for this phone.
It is great for getting organised too, i daily use the diary and reminders function and can even import events from facebook (great for not forgetting peoples birthdays!)
The voice activated dialling is also a very handy function for when you dont want to scroll through loads of contacts details,
overall A very good phone offering a superb range of applications and functions. I love it
Summary: very good quality, great apps, fab phone
