Rated 5 out of 5 by from O2 LG GW520 For the price you pay this phone is defiantly worth the money. The keyboard is very easy to use and the way the predictive text words appear is very good. The screen is clear the ring tones are ok My other half got me a camera case which I use as the phone case as it does not get supplied . I have not used the camera part yet so can not write any thing about it . The phone is ideal for my use but make sure you press the screen properly on the part you need other wise it can get frustrating deleting and repressing. The menu could be clearer in that it takes a while to find things on the phone but may be its because I am in my late 40’s and technical things like mobiles are geared up for younger users All in all a very good phone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsum phone...a must have I love his phone. Specially bought it for texting, and very easy to us. Battery life is outstanding. With one full charge lasts me 3 days, even thow i use my phone for texting all the time and camera is awsum. Got lots of editing features. You can also use the on screen touch keypad to text. Got all the features like bluetooth, music player, etc . . Just one thing would have made this mobile AWSOME.....a wifi. yes thts the only thing lacking in this item. BUT OVERALL I LOVE THIS PHONE!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone This phone is the best and it has great features like the camera it takes clear pictures, You can also customise the pictures you have taken which is brilliant. The design is very appealing to my eyes. The colours go well and there is like a smooth touch to the phone.
