Advantages: You can get on your Facebook/Twitter (given you can get signal)
Disadvantages: Battery life, internal memory space, texting is awkward
I got this phone at the start of December as a birthday present, and after reading some reviews on it, I was keen to return it and get a different phone, but out of sheer laziness and eagerness to have a smart phone I kept it. I should have swapped it for a different phone!!!
The phone is just your basic smartphone with its internet, its apps and its internal memory. Although a huge thing to take into consideration if you want to buy this phone is the BATTERY LIFE! I would charge my phone overnight, and go into work for an 8 hour shift and leave my phone in my locker, at the end of the shift I'll take my phone out and the battery is half way down, even though it hasnt been touched! I find it really frustrating because if I am using it for an app or something it goes down so quickly. It barely lasts through the day!
Also, this other problem might be a network problem, I am on the network 3, and sometimes find it difficult to get signal to go online on the phone when I am in certain places!
Most apps will be saved on the internal memory, which isn't great as there isn't much of it! I only really have Facebook, Twitter and an app called Whatsapp, and I still get told I'm running low on storage space!
Texting can be a challenge, the letters are all small and close together, and you can only have the one layout which is the keyboard style!
I have the white Wildfire S, and if you get this I recommend you get a cover for the back of it as it scrapes and gets dirty so easily.
Summary: Don't get this phone, that is all.
