Perfect mobile phone for consumers not willing to make great investments in mobile

from GSMArena
Pros and cons+ Very good price/performance ratio+ Excellent phonebook+ 10 MB of memory- Unattractive menu design- Low resolution camera, no video.. Full review

Average entry level phone....

that is basic and decent. For the price that it is now, it''s better to wait till it''s free under a contract agreement. For pre-paid, it''s acceptable. Had the phone 4 over a yr now, with FIDO.

that is basic and decent. For the price that it is now, it''s better to wait till it''s free under a contract agreement. For pre-paid, it''s acceptable. Had the phone 4 over a yr now, with FIDO. Dropped it a handful of times and still works. If you''re careless like me, this is the phone 2 get! Otherwise, it''s a decent phone if that''s all you want for it. Built-in camera has 3x zoom with -/+ brightness adjustment. The cam is ok. Some bluriness. In low lite situation, can be 2 dark as there is no flash. In sunlite, very good just basic features. Reception with phone is dodgy at times. Depends on the area and service provider. One time, I was in the mall, had the call dropped several times. Same mall, another time works fine. Navigating the menues is a bit slow but GUI friendly. Able to change the style of menues with different colors. Playing games on phone is alrite. With some games, takes a bit to load up. Again, basic features. Games for this phone is decent, graphics isn''t all that great. Love the address/calender/notes ect. features. Stores quite a bit of info. You can even add photos for contacts. Ringtones comes in poly/monophonic sounds. Not bad, a lil static at times. When getting calls, 1st two rings softly then increases. If buried in bag /purse, can''t hear much. Vibrate is decent, could be stronger. Owned a Siemens A56, the vibrate rocked solidly! Loved the buttons on the phone. Nice and large. On/Off button could be bigger. Joystick handling is decent. Beware that browser button when SMS sum1, it''s too close to the keypad. SMS is very good. Haven''t tried MSM. Recollects msg if halfway done and you accidently hit the menu button. Battery life during standby is quite good ~3days. Only if you recharge during SHUT DOWN mode & turn off Time/Date & lower contrast/illumination. While talkin, maybe a decent hour or less before it dies. Game play will suck it up like crazy. Memory for phone is pretty good. Have a lot of ringtones, contacts, average games, pictures ects still. Sometimes the phone freezes if using the cam and you''ve moved it 2 quickly while taking a pic. Also, there is times where the phone shuts off by itself. Overall, quite satisfied with it so far. Wished they had faceplates that was easily exchangeable. Hoped that helped. Less

good phone, bad reception.

This phone is great for its features and price. But you suffer with terrible reception as a catch. If youcna handle a good phone with good features, a little confusing to use, but with bad reception, then go for it. I can't stand it, I'm switching.
