good quality camera, lots of features, good memory
unresponsive buttons texting, some awkard menus.
The phone has all the features that you would expect. polyphonic tones, colour screen and GPRS. It also has a few luxuries like digital camera and voice memo function. The camera is great with good quality that can be used for loads of things [wallpapers etc] the voice memo however is not as good. With a very low volume that makes it very hard to hear. The disign is good, as although it's big it uses it's space well with a big good quality screen. The major problem I had with this phone is that it seems to struggle the basic things and for £250 pay as you go I expected more. examples: the phone has to be on for the alarm to go off meaning a problem if you use it as an alarm clock in the morning, as you have to have it on all night. Texing is also longwinded. The t9 texting doesn't recognise many unusual words and the buttons are unresponsive meaning you have to bash them, so it makes texting fast hard. It also seemed slower than my old nokia at getting through options although it is still faster than some. You also can't send numbers to other phones straight away. It is a good feature packed phone that will turn heads. But unfortunatly has trouble with the basic funtions that most people use, so when the novelty wears off you remember just how much it cost, and that you can get a phone that might not look as good but is easier and faster to use at £100 less.
