Bad: not android
Comment: It is kind of awesome but not as good as it looks
Good: small, good looking,drawing panel,good social network apps
Bad: camera,games,tiny memory!!!
Comment: I've had this phone for a while and it's never done me wrong. When i got it i was amazed at how simple to use it was!I loved how they had paint on it!!The facebook is very good but i would like to be able to chat on it. There is only one proper game on it and all the others can only be played on a short trial mode.The worst part for me was the memory: it won't even hold a full song for me!Oh and it may say 5 megapixels but it's more like 0.5 :o value for money,very good but if you gave me the choice between this and a bb, no contest: bb!
Good: Touchscreen, extra camera button on side, comes with pc transfer cable and headphones with mic
Bad: Camera quality dissapointing for 5 megapixel, no wifi, limited features
Comment: The main reason I bought this phone was because it has a 5 megapixel camera which is good for its price range but in actual fact the pictures are pretty poor. They look fine on the phones screen but when viewed on a computer are grainy and lack detail and also don't pick up colour very well, they look desaturated.
The touchscreen is ok but it doesn't come with that many apps and you can't add any either. The fullsize keyboard is akward to use as the buttons are very small and I often press the wrong key by mistake. I feel that due to the lack of apps and small keyboard that the touchscreen is pretty useless and doesn't really offer any advantages over a non-touchscreen phone. It looks nice but thats about it.
The phone doesn't have wifi so cannot connect to the internet via a wireless router at home of wifi hotspot when out and about. It does come with a pc transfer cable and a nice set of headphones with an answer button and mic which is handy for driving. It can also be used as an mp3 player and fm radio.
Overall, I'd say it looks like a smartphone but lacks the features of one so isnt really much more than a basic phone with a touchscreen. Personally I would recommend either buying a cheaper non-touchscreen phone or paying a little extra for a smartphone. This phone seems to be in a no mans land in between the two.
Good: Absolutely everything!!
Bad: Nothing (its great!)
Comment: I would recommend this phone to any1 for these reasons:
1. MP3 & radio is great
3.Screen really responsive
5.too many more
Comment: i had mine for a year and it keeps turning it self off and not coming on for the rest of the day it also keeps freezing on me all of the time I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PHONE TO ANYONE
Good: The camera, general facility's
Bad: Touch screen, only a little bit laggy but only very occasionally
Comment: I've had this phone for about 4 months and its reat phone! Texting with the QWERTY keyboard is quite small, most likely for little fingers like mine. Overall fantastic phone, lot's to do with it! :)
Comment: Just to correct the above review. If you turn the screen brightness down to 20%, which is perfectly bright enough except if you are outside, then you can get 4 days full use out of the battery. Excellent phone but one thing I hate is the T9 on it, it is totally stupid and suffers a bit from Engrish
Comment: Sounds good :)
Good: Well,i think what is good about t is the camera and the flash .
Bad: the touch on my phone is slow and it takes ages to come on.It turns itself off and on -it has a mind of its own
Comment: if you are looking to buy a phone and are interested in this phone i would'nt reccomend this phone because i have had it for nearly 6 months and regret buying it .I dont know if it has to do with where got it from( tesco mobile)...it's a real disapointmant as i was going to get a blackberry phone but decided to get this one instead and i wish i had'nt it scratches easily and phones yur contacts if you put it in yur pocket with out lokng it .PLEASE DONT GET THIS PHONE!
Good: Awesome camera!
Comment: Overall a very good phone. The silver one is alot nicer than the black one!
