it's clear from the start that this phone was designed to compete with the Blackberry range of mobiles, and it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, in my personal opinion it has a better design than the Blackberry - however when handling it it becomes obvious that the phone is made of cheaper material than the actual things, and it isn't as shiny.
Unfortunately the qwerty keyboard, which is the main feature of this type of device, is completely useless for anyone who isn't a munchkin. It requires you to have the smallest fingers imaginable to hit the correct keys, something which I personally found completely impossible.
The features of the phone are quite acceptable, it doesn't have 3G internet capabilities, but neither does the phone it's modeled on and the web is quite fast. There are a number of websites built into the interface as applications however there are no extra applications that can be installed to make it a true smart phone.
In short, this is a great low cost phone for those wanting to have a la mode phones, but it does lack in both features and usability (of which there is none). If you are cash strapped then I can see why you would go for this phone, otherwise there are much better ones on the market.
I have owned this mobile for around a year now and it does take a lot of getting used to with its tiny qwerty keyboard and numbers.

It is very easy to use with its simple menu and interface and it looks like a great phone with its blue black and grey colour scheme. It has all of the usual features of a standard phone, text, calls, sms, mms.
The screen is a good large size.
The camera is easy to use as you only have to press the button on the side of the phone to activate it. There is also video avalible from the same button, you just have to change the options. The quality of both the video and images can be quite poor unless the lighting is good.
It has no wifi or GPS. The keys on the qwerty keyboard are difficult to press when writing text messages which results in you forever having to delete parts of messages and starting again. The phone did not come with the micro sd card required so I purchased one seperatly. This has reallt slowed the phone down.
To dial a number you are expected to use the numbers behind the keyboard. These keys are really small and hard to press. The battery life is also not great, even when barely used I have to fully re-charge every 2-3 days.
I would reccomend this phone for great value for money. I expect that it would be great for a starter phone for a youngster.
