Advantages: everything about it is an advantage
Disadvantages: delicate and expensive screen
i brought this phone for my wife after days of badgering and i have to say its brilliant. its very thin which is great for her handbag, or so she keeps telling me.
the camera is very clear and you can zoom quite alot to take photos that are far away.
very easy to dowload apps aswell as get rid of any apps you no longer want anymore. the battery life wasnt too good when we first brought it but after a few charges the battery seemed to hold its charge a lot longer.
very easy to understand however i think you need to take a couple of hours to get to grips with everything before you start downloading.
can be used as a modem which has been great when our internet went down and i needed to get on line to do some work, although it seemed a little slow trying to open different pages it still worked a treat.
a little confusing when you plug it into your computer to transfer files and photos but once you have got to grips with doing it and you know what to look for your fine.
the screen is ver delicate though, we found that out when my wife dropped her phone on the living room floor which is carpeted and cracked the top of the screen and it gradually got worse. the screens are also expensive to replace too. we took the phone to carphone warehouse and they wanted to charge £170 for a new screen. Infact the cheapest one we have found is £79.
the phone is very easy to use, infact my 5year and 3 year old can download and play the games on the phone, its that easy.
alot of free apps for the phone too which is a bonus.
the speakers are loud for when you have it on loud speaker or just listening to some music.
all in all a brilliant phone. a deffinate must buy.
alot better than the iphone thats for sure
Summary: a fantastic phone
