Colour screen, polyphonic tones, battery life
Complicated menus (too many clicks for basic operations), especially annoying phonebook, response time to key press, battery that doesent clip well, fragile impresion, pictures taken with camera look bad in the phone (i havent tried it on computer)...
It lies good in the hand but it feels fragile, the battery doesn't clip well which gives me this annoying feeling it will fall out. For Locking/unlocking the keypad instead of one long keypress you need to make three (often more because of the joystick which goes where you don't want to), and I don't want it locked all the time to use auto lock!
Accesing inbox or write SMS is quicker because of numbered menus, but typing the messages is ANNOYING because of long response time to keypress (and this is an overall feature). Sending it is even more annoying, because you have to press OK once, then again to acces menu, then again to choose phonebook, then again to acces the phonebook, then it doesn't list the entries but askes you "find" so you have to press letter, then OK to confirm it, then OK to confirm the number, then OK to send. If I counted well it's 8 clicks (and with that annoying delay)!! Gee, lot of my messages are shorter!! Couldn't they make it simpler?!! And the same thing is if you want to dial!!
It doesen't have the calendar, so if i want to scedule something i have to look around for one, doesent have voice dial, voice command.
I haven't phoned much, but the little i did, i almost couldn't hear the other side, I havent tried with that button on the side but if I have to keep it pressed all the time I talk to hear the other side I'll kill someone!!! Given all that, I tried to comfort myself taking pictures but they look awfull in the phone (i haven't tried mailing it on the computer), and playing games is not attractive to say the least because of that same slow response time (it's just like playing a new game on the old computer).
And with all that, what do you need other features if it doesn't performe the basic ones well!
I'll try to get ridd of it any way I can!
