Advantages: Great easy to use
Disadvantages: easily broken, expensive to repair
I absolutely loved this smart phone, it was my lifeline, great for email, web browsing and of course social networking. Quick and simple to use on the internet, the touch screen is very responsive, and the camera took good quality photos (for a phone). It has a large screen, which makes it much more convienient for web browsing than some of the cheaper smart phones. Also with that screen size it is not too bad for watching little videos on. Its an android phone, and similar to the iphone you can download apps for various things.
Although the phone is metal, the screen is glass (I think) and after a couple of drops I did have a rather nasty crack down the screen. On the plus side, this did not effect its use, the touch screen worked absolutely fine.
The way it is made, the battery is right inside the phone, you can't take it out like I have been able to on all other phones I have owned. This would not be a problem, had I not left it in a little puddle of water on my bedside table. Unfortunately the water got into the battery. Had I just been able to replace the battery I would probably still be using the phone, but the cost of repair was too high.
Summary: Don't buy if you are clumsy!
