This phone is quite nice and I have had it for over a year now and it sits in your hand nicely without slipping out.
The reception is very good, in places like buildings i get quite strong signal.
The speaker of the phone and call quality is excellent and very loud, you can talk in a loud environment and still able to hear.
Internet is not to bad but i don't use it much, not very good on seeing texts and images.
Music, videos and pictures are very good, when i was at college i played the music all day plus it is very loud on speaker and through earphones.
The camera on this phone is rubbish, the picture smears after the shot and moves to slow on movement. I have to keep it straight as possible.
The speed of the phone is very good, switches to tasks quick.
Everyday usage is very good, this phone never lets me down.
The keyboard layout is very good, i can touch one button without touching others, not to small.
The quality of the display is very good.
The battery life is good, it lasted me about 5 hours of music and it takes about 1hr - 1hr 30mins to recharge, very quick.
The overal rating is 7.1 so to me this phone is very good.

Like most phones these days the manual pre-supposes a great hi-tech knowledge as it's only 2 sides of an A4 sheet. I'm middle aged and not really au fait with all the capabilities of this low cost feature packed phone. For the price it's got more capabilities than anything else I found at this budget. However, (I've only had it a couple of days) the lack of a USB direct connection is a pain so I will have to study up. I still can't figure out how to work the radio without plugging in the headphones. The headphone connection is not the standard 3.5mm jack so I'm expecting to pay a small fortune if I ever lose those supplied. The ringtone volume is pitiful and of the 20 installed ringtones, 18 are pure sonic diarrhoea. I would be ashamed to be heard being called in public with them. The camera is more of an extra feature than anything serious. I'm really more of a talk and text man than phone freak but for the price (£25 after top-ups and subtracting the woth of free time supplied) I really can't beef. The zeros on the phone numbers (but not the clock) have a diagonal type slash so they look like 8s. Very confusing if your sight isn't great.I also doubt the stated standby time As a low-tech guy it's hard for me to really judge all the possibilities but I would give it only 1 point for usability as the ringer volume, non-standard headphone jack, vomit inducing tones, "trendy" zeros and manual let it down. But hell, for the price I can't complain!

Design 9/10
Features 9/10
Performance 5/10


  • Probably more features for the money than any other phone.
  • The manual though inadequate, actually does make sense unlike some that I've seen.


  • Numerical font. Headphone jack. Awful ringtones. No USB cable. Inadequate manual. Ringer volume.
