Bought this phone about 1 week ago previously having owned an Ericsson W302, which was a stylish but ordinary phone. The styling I would say is average, but the predictive text is very good and quick, although caps only is a bit disappointing. Generally speaking navigating around is fast, and simple.
The camera is very good for a 2mp job, the W302 was more expensive but image quality definitely inferior. Battery life good and the Radio self tunes swiftly.
A real dislike is the amount of silly button pushing you need to do before you send a text, really irritating and unnecessary, disappointing when writing the message is so quick.
It does not have gadgety things like dancing smilies and on most phones when you write a text and hold down the button you get its number, on this one you need to come out of the menu select numeric input key in the number, and then when you have finished then reselect alphanumeric input. Ring tones are utterly naff but there's plenty of other naff ones to choose from.
All said and done for the money it is very good £26.50 with orange discount excluding top up ~ can't go wrong for the money.
