Good: good look easy to use
Bad: no flash
Comment: i am enjoying this phone and it is true that the battery life isnt too great, however charging up phones isnt exactly rocket science so not too much of a bother. i am dissapointed that there isnt a flash on the camera as i like to take pics when i am out at night i.e clubs and pubs. but as a phone in gerneal i am happy with it. but would suggest shopping round for different phones before settling for the rio 2.
Comment: I am extremely disapointed with this phone. The camera is very bad quality, as is the touch screen- when i first got it it took 10 minutes to press the send button. The battery life is also very bad, mine usually dies within the first day of charging it. I would say that this phone is a very bad design, from the layout to the fact that i regularly use a large amount of credit because the 'mail' app comes up, without me pressing it. Whenever I try to quickly exit the phone freezes. The facebook and twitter apps do not work. Do not buy this phone.
Good: Looks very stylish, has bluetooth,mp3 and everything i want. It also has a good camera
Bad: The keys are not spaced out so if you have big chunky fingers you are likely to press many buttons at the same time.
Comment: Although the rio 2 has everything you want pressing the keys can be frustrationg because they are not very spaced out, so you end up pressing more than one button. This phone is fairly easy to use but sometimes the touch screen does not respond first time. Other than those downs this is a great phone.
Good: Everything!!! this phone is absolutely AMAZING!! it does everything a blackberry does basically, and loads more!
Bad: Absolutely NOTHING at all!! everything is really really good and reliable, and nothing has ever gone wrong with it for me!
Comment: this phone is the best phone i've ever had! and the best i will ever have and im never gonna get anything else because it is just sooo good! you will DEFIANTLY have to get this phone so you will be able to have an amazing life for the rest of your days, because its so reliable and has never let me down! it includes a reallly really good camera with a flash and pinch zoom thingy, and the touch screen is amazing, and has quick tap, which makes it really fast and reliable. you have got to get this phone, trust me, its way better than a blackberry (they are rubbish, it broke like the first day i got it wen i dropped it on the carpet ha ha) and its like a third of the price! so go for it! you will most probably cry of happiness! :) love u people
