Advantages: Small and stylish! Great value and works a treat
Disadvantages: Not found any yet, camera is poor quality?
Firstly I must say that I do not own this phone anymore, my brother does, but I used it for two weeks because I bought it for myself, then upgraded to an iPhone and gave this to him for his birthday. The phone came free on a 24 month contract at 7.50 a month. It is stylish for its price, I believe you can buy this phone for about £50 brand new.
The phone looks very similar to a blackberry in its style and uses to same qwerty keyboard! What made me want to buy this phone in the first place was the fact that it looked similar to the blackberry,, but was so much cheaper. I have had brilliant experiences with all Samsung products in the past and similar with this, they are built well and the quality shows because they last for a long time :)
This phone comes with smartphone features which we now expect to see! You can even access twitter and Facebook on the home screen. This allows you to see notifications and keep up to date with your social networking accounts. Also your home screen allows you to add your favourite contacts and an image of them so you can call the, quickly!
This phone has very good wifi connectivity, so when your at home you can browse the Internet and search things. Apps are limited on this, but some are good, it's worth having a look on the app market. The sound quality of the inbuilt speakers is rather good! You can listen to music on the go also becaus the headphone socket supports normal headphones! You could use it as your mp3 player too.
Inbuilt memory is low, but this doesn't matter becaus you can put a micro sd card in it! They are cheap to get hold of so you cam store as many pictures and videos and music on as you like. Samsung have there own version of iTunes which you use to put music onto it, so it's very simple to do. I rang up samsung and they were happy to guide me through parts of the set up process I struggled with.
The phones battery life is good, it lasts 4/5 days which is rather good compared to the iPhone I am using now that only lasts a day. I think the Samsung chat is really practical. Also the actual feel of the phone in your hands is grEat, it has a rough back tO the phone and a smooth front, it doesn't slip out of your hand when holding it too. I bought a cheap case off of ebay to protect it, I recommend you do this too, nothing worse than a damaged phone!
You can also use it as a camera, it has a 2mega pixel camera which isn't great, but works and for the price of the phone it's a bonus to have a camera! You can record videos on it too, so if your out and about and see something interesting, this phone will capture it for you.
Overall I was extremely happy with this phone, it doesnt compare at all to an iPhone, but i don't think there aiming at the same market. This phones great for kids as there first smart phone because you will not worry about the, damaging it as much as you would if it were a htc, blackberry or and iPhone! Plus they are so simple to use and kids won't struggle with them. This phone is great for the money, it shows how quickly phone technology has moved on recently because this is cheap, and it's good!
Thanks for reading my review, hope it helped :)
Summary: Perfect for the price. Top quality phone
