Nice design. Brought it for large screen (although newer phones now have bigger screens).
Like the games on it.
Ring volume too quiet
Menu awkward to use
Doesn't hold postal addresses
Camera poor in dim light
Problems sending text messages when abroad
This really is the worse phone that I have ever owned. I will elaborate on the bad points:
The ring volume is too quiet. Although there is a vibro function, this doesn't always seem to work. I've had many occasions where the phone has been in my pocket and I've missed calls as I didn't know the phone was ringing.
The menu is fiddly to use. There is a shortcuts section but I rarely use it as it takes several movements to get to it. 1) Press joystick in front screen, 2) Move joystick left then up and press, 3) Choose shortcut selection. That's 3 movements to get to the shortcuts!!!! Many other options take many clicks to find. You try looking up an email address in your address book!
Doesn't hold addresses. Ok not everyone's requirement, but this is frustrating, and made even worse when I tried to sync my phone with Outlook and use the priority as the phone. Result - all my addresses got wiped in Outlook. Oh, doesn't hold birthdays either.
The camera is terrible in poor light (not great in good light). You can adjust the brightness using the joystick (not in the manual), but it's not enough.
When I go abroad, I have so many problems sending text messages. I was in Spain this month on holiday and the main network is Movistar. All my friends on their antique Nokia 6210s had no problems. I had to change network to Amena. BUT....to send a picture message, I had to go back to Movistar. Wierd!!!!!
