Before I got this phone I have been using my N Gage for the previous years (Which for all of its flaws is still a wonderful piece of tech). Anyway the first thing that took a while for me to get used to is the touchscreen which In glad to report is incredibly precise with it never failing to select an icon after the first press.
Apart from being a very appealing to phone to look at it is an exceptioanlly well equipped one with a built in 5 megapixel camera and video recorder, Built in MP3/MP4 player, built in GPS with Google maps allready installed and it is Bluetooth, 3G and WiFi ready. With this you allready have a portable media player and with other applications such as a calendar calculator and cliff notes creator you also have a fucntional PDA
You may be wondering with all the extras where does the actual phone part in Smartphone get anny attention. Well with the inituitive and well layed out interface it is easy to add new contacts as well keeping track and finding existing ones. SMS is made easier with the QWERTY designed keypad allowing you to type in words swiftly and no need worrying about predictive text.
Samsung uses the android operating system and with that you have the Android version of the apple app store known as Android Market. This marketplace allows you to download additional games and tools on your phone. Want to know what the Angry Birds craze is about. Just seen someone fall over in the street and tell your friends and followers on facebook and twitter then you can download the apps. Their are millions of apps avalible to purchase or download for free.
Their is also a built in internet browser but I personally think its a piece of junk it is marginally better then the one found on the playstation portable. If you want to access a website see if there is an app avaliable on the marketplace.
Before you conisder purchasing a Smartphone make sure that your mobile operator has a 3G connection avalaible for where you are living otherwise you will not be getting the full benefits of a Smartphone. Also to be able to take photos, store music and download apps you will need to buy the appropiate MMC card and adaptor which are both provided in the box but, the MMC card provided is only 2 GB large so it may be worth purchasing a larger one so more apps, music etc can be stored
This is a solid well built Smartphone which is a great to own if you dont have the money or desire to own a Samsung Galaxy S model or iPhone. Some will argue that HTC make better for phones But I have had no regrets or problems with this phone
Summary: A great Smartphone that can be bought from as little as £10 a month
