Good non touch screen phone

Good non touch screen phone. I bought this phone for my wife and up to now she is very pleased. The phone looks great, has some interesting features and has a pretty decent camera. However one must be careful when taking a picture, not to shake the phone. In good hands, the pictures can be very good for a camera phone.

Build quality 9/10 The build and finish quality is very good. The design is pleasant.
Reception 9/10 No reception problems.
Call quality 9/10
Internet 7/10
Multimedia 9/10 Loud speaker is very good quality and volume. Video playback is smooth. Music player is very good.
Camera 9/10 Camera is among the best 3.15 MP snappers. Much better than 3 MP Nokias. The colours are very natural. Still, one must be very careful when shooting a picture, because there is no image stabilizer and therefore pictures can be very easily 'shaken'.
UI speed 5/10 Nothing to be scared about, but there are some delays in user interface response, particularly in the seconds after insertion of the memory card.
Everyday usage 8/10 The screen appearance is very pleasant. There is also a built in function that allows you to search the entire content of the phone for a specific text. There is a built in document viewer, image gallery is nice and the USB socket makes connections and charging very easy.
Text input 7/10
Display 9/10 Great display clarity, good pixel density.
Battery 7/10 3-4 days with normal using. Can drop to two days if heavily used.
