Good everyday phone for a low price

stolniceanulucian has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

The most usual functions: calling, camera, music and organizer are well implemented.

The phone is not suitable for internet browsing or many java applications. Larger java applications cannot be instaled (.jar file larger than 500 kb).

The price is very good and the screen is good quality.

The phone has small dimensions for its screen size, has a standard audio jack and it is very convenient for a hand held device.

The phone is made out of glossy black plastic that scratches easily and makes any fingerprint visible. A protective cover is mandatory.
Reception
9.0
I have not encountered any reception problems and the SAR rating of this phone is very good (aprox 0.5)

Call quality is very good
Internet
2.0
Internet browsing is not fast enough but it is still usable. I think that opera mini 4 or higher can really improve the browsing experience.
Multimedia
7.0
The phone can play 240x320 videos. The screen pixel density is good. The music player does not allow importing entire folders into a playlist and that is annoying for me. The loudspeaker is not as loud as I would expect but its sound quality is very good. I like very much the 3.5 mm jack. You can play radio using a double jack wire as antenna (and not the entire headphones set) Slideshow of pictures is working good but the phone cannot display pictures larger than 2 MP. 3.2 MP images or higher c
Camera
7.0
Camera is impresive for 2 MP. The colors are very nice and the amount of detail is very good for close shots. Video recording is useless (176x144). The videos are too small and chunky. The camera also offers very few settings. You only have one exposure measurement setting, there is no panorama option and so on. The good thing about the camera is that it is fast and shaken photos are rare.
UI speed
8.0
The interface speed is very good but it seems to slow down a little bit when there are a lot of files on the memory card. Still, for the price paid the performance is very good.
Everyday usage
8.0
The phone does not have dedicated volume buttons but volume adjustment is implemented in various softkeys combinations. After you get used to this there are no usability problems.
Text input
7.0
The keyboard is rather soft. It's perfect for my taste and it is is very silent too.
Display
8.0
I got this phone for 25 EUROS. The screen is 2.4 inches and 240x320. The pixel density is great for the size of the screen. For the price paid I am really delighted with the quality of the screen.
Battery
8.0
Battery backup is aproximately 5 days with moderate use.

  • Very good camera for the price
  • low SAR rating
  • very good price
