Features and large clear display
software is slow at times
Can't feel the vibrate that much!
Iv had the Orange SPV Mobile phone for a week - certainly rich in features, especially compared to my old 8310 (why on earth can we not have a radio too though?!)
The only thing i don't like is the fact that, as has been mentioned, i see the "hour glass timer" (or Orange equivalent a lot while using the various applications - ok, so at worst you wait a few seconds, but you dont really want to see the thing at all. Also, when selecting something, sometimes it is processing and the timer is not there at all, and you just think "has it even registered i want to access this thing?" so you press the action key again, only to then have pressed it twice so you jump into an area, then jump into another area etc - basically there is something of a lag at times.
Other than that its pretty cool - the only other gripe is you can't seem to change the number of rings before the phone goes to voicemail - the vibrate is quite gentle so i have missed some calls due to feeling it at the last minute and then being too slow off the mark to pick it up before voicemail kicked in - quite annoying!
PS you can get a car charger for it.
