Advantages: Long battery life. QWERTY keyboard. music player. Cheap
Disadvantages: Music player doesn't recognise track details and lags / inbox memory full/ blurry camera
I've had this phone for about 6 months so far. I orginally bought it on a 24 month contract from tesco for 7.50 a month. For the price I really feel that this was a good value for money. I love the Qwerty keyboard and the keys are just the right size for my fingers. My phone was recently water damaged as I dropped it down the loo but despite this the phone still works pretty well, except for the fact that the sensor bar has stopped working. All in all the phone works well, one weakness is the music player. which doesn't always seem to recognise artist descriptions, however i've just learnt to deal with this.
I would recomend this to a friend as it is affordable and seems pretty durable as it still works even after extreme water damage.
Overall i would rate this phone at about 7/10, as I feel it makes an impressive fake blackberry.
The functions of this phone are very easy to use. The functions include: a music player, a video player, a sound recorder, a 2mp camera, a video camera, standard text and picture messaging, internet (3G and Wifi), bluetooth and an organisers. The music player works well, and plays mp3 files as well as some other file types, however sometimes I find that it lags when trying to change songs (however this may be because of the huge amount of music I have on it.) The video player also works well, however you cannot skip through a video, and therefore can only watch from the beginning. Also because the screen is not that big it is actually really hard to see the videos. The sound recorder records sounds at a moderate quality. One weakness of this phone is the camera. Despite the fact that it thas a 2mp camera the camera pictures are often blurry, and there is no flash, so picctures can appear very unfocused. The video camera is again blury, but booth the camer and the video are okay for day to day use, unless you want to take really good pictures. The text messaging is easy to use and self-explanative, and changing a standard text message to a picture message is easy, as you simply choose to "add picture" while writing a standard message. One problem that I find with messaging is that the inbuilt memory for text messaging is very limited, and I therefore get messageees saying that my inbox is full ,and when this happens I have to delete some messages. I also can't just change the default save to memory card. Another issue that I find with this phone is that the internet is slow, even if I am using wif and sometimes I can't even access the internet at all, andwhen this happens I have to restart my phone to gain internet connection agaiin. Therefore the internet on this phone is a big negativve for me.
Summary: Good cheap phone which does everything it needs to
