Comment: I have survived with this phone for over a year now, its on contract and im not allowed a new phone until this contracts over, this phone has had more problems than ever. the apps are slow, its internet speed is terrible, it wont even start anymore and I can only use it for a couple of mins before it has a spaz attack with the vibration and says it cannot open anything other than settings, even then after 2 mins it will force close.
Good: looks good
Comment: this was my first and last purchase of an android it was on charge more than I got to use it .I've binned the blo--y thing and gone back to my old phone. This in spite of turning the data and wi-fi off.
Good: Fast Boot, good storage.
Bad: Slow, connectivity.
Good: Cheap Android Phone
Bad: Everything else
Comment: This phone is good if your looking for a cheap Android phone. All the rest of it is rubbish, ive only had it 2 months and the touch buttons at the bottom of the screen have stopped working! It also freezes a lot and the internet isnt fast at all. I am looking at a new phone now because I hate this one so much!
Good: Easy to use the ease of downloading apps funky pink cover
Bad: camera mp3 player not that loud
Comment: Its a good phone a bargin at £59.99 plus top up on vodaphone, I like the ease of putting apps on to it( A lot easier than trying to get apps on to an I pod touch witch is on horriable I tunes), The ammount of free apps unlike I pod or I phone apps. My only gripe is the mp3 player is not that loud not good when you can hear a bus engine instead of your music and the camera as no self timer and photo quailty is poor indoor under lights. Apart from that It is very good value but I may change my sim to three as there is a small data limit on vodaphone. Buy One!
Good: Runs Android, Wifi
Comment: Good phone, camera is the worst thing on it. Has android and the internet is really fast. Love this phone.
Good: Brilliant mobile
Comment: I love this phone. It even has a speech to text facility, so that it will type what you say. The screen is big enough to see web pages easily, unlike my old mobile. The only two things I don't like are that the keyboard keys are so small that you can easily touch the wrong letter, and that it doesn't appear to have an icon to show you have a message. If you are out of the room and miss the notification tone when the text arrives, you won't know you have received one. You need to check for messages regularly to find out if you have any. Apart from that, it is really good for the price,
Good: it does all you can expect from a phone of that price range
Bad: no flash or focus for camara
Good: sensitive screen, Android OS, Google branded + preloaded
Bad: no flash support & 3 'sensitive' buttons at the bottom require a bit of feeling around to click sometimes
Comment: When I first set my eyes on getting the Xperia X8, i thought i was going to be getting a top rated phone for under £100. But after being advised by the salesman in the phone shop to go for a cheaper handset, i was quite surprised. The X8 is made by a respective manufacturer, also has android - although it is an older version, and had a slightly less attractive look to it.
So far the Blaze has been great - its easy to control the use of the internet by a quick flick of the upper menu which controls features such as the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and data - i tend to turn this off at night so i don't get social network updates or email alerts.
All in all a great little phone and i would recommend it to someone looking for a general all round good, cheap Android phone.
