Comment: Good phone
Good: Looks nice, useful web browsing, widgets, battery cover is easy to remove, Eco-friendly
Bad: Curved back
Comment: It's not me that owns this phone, it's my brother, but I have used it fairly when I didn't have a phone. First off, the good stuff. This phone has the original chocolate-bar style layout, and it looks very nice. The web browser is great, widgets meaning easy access to social networks and search engines, easily removed battery cover, but not so easy that snatching or dropping could cause it to come off, and it's part of an Eco friendly range. I mean, it's good the back cover is stiff but won't come off easily, because the phone I have, samsung sgh-j700i, has the STIFFEST BACK EVER and if I were to remove it I can't at all. The only bad thing with this phone is that the curved back makes it feel as if it was going to slip out of your hand at any moment! I don't own this phone anyway, but I wish I did. GREAT PHONE 10/10
Good: It's cheap, on Three and can upload photo's to Facebook
Bad: cheaply made, take time to get used to it
Comment: It was a cheap phone, as I needed a phone quickly on Three, ok on Twitter and Facebook, ok for text, but had to be replaced because the phone went wrong & had to be replaced.
Great phone when working, not so good when not.
Good: 1) 3g/hsdpa 2) price 3) design
Bad: netfront browser
Comment: I got mine from 3 (same deal from Argos) for Â£49.99 (inc Â£10 worth of calls, texts and internet for 1 month). The default browser, Netfront, isn't the best, but I just downloaded Opera Mini, which I recommend.
My main requirements are browsing and email, both of which work well. I was tempted by a smartphone but on a limited budget this was a brilliant deal - 3g/hsdpa, very inexpensive, light and pleasing design.
Good: Geo tagging, timescape style widgets on the home screen, battery life, multi taksing capabilities, IM style text(SMS) conversations
Bad: no front cam to have 2-way video conversation
Comment: Everything on the phone is great except for 2 minor issues:
1. if you lack 3G connectivity, you'll have trouble and browsing through the web as the EDGE/GPRS connectivity can really get onto your nerves.
2. no front facing cam to have a 2-way video call.
