Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Points: Qwerty Keypad is great for txting easy and fast, good internal memory, affordable, modern, weight is good, wide screen and sensitive touch screen. Overall am pleased with phone :) Bad Points: Camera features lack within the phone and no flash for camera, so is mainly for use in daytime in light areas. has no themes to change the background colour of phone when looking through menu and txting etc. However there are plenty of good features and is an affordable phone :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Points: I was really pleased with the phone. The only problem was the battery tends to run down quite quickly. Never had one of these before and it is a really, really nice phone. I had had a Blackberry and had no end of problems so bought this one as it was on sale and it is great. Bad Points: Battery life.
