I wanted a new phone as my contract was up for renewal but didnt want a phone that was a full touch screen or had no touch screen at all as the screen on my other phone was playing up. I pay £30 for this on contract on orange which was no change to my current tarriff. I was set on the idea i did not want a blackberry as everybody has these and wanted to be different. I saw this one advertised on a billboard which said coming soon to orange. I decided to look online and see what features it has and also what package i could have it on.
This phone is very good in the way you can browse the menu either using the screen or the QWERTY keyboard and it seems to be very responsive and does not freeze when you try to open programmes.
The internet is very fast and i dont seem to have a problem getting on the internet especially when you can either use orange internet or wireless. Google maps and navigation is perfect it seems to work really quickly and you can also use the places function where it will tell you where the local ATM machines are or a local cinema which seemed to be useful after taking a recent trip to Newcastle.
The call volume seems to be high enough and also the vibration i can actually feel which is useful if i forget to turn my phone off silent.
The facebook button is useful as i always seem to be on facebook and by pressing it you can change your status.
The camera is brilliant and you can upload pictures straight away or bluetooth, email you name it you can do it.
Summary: Phone that you can use for most things and download apps and browse internet quickly
