"For what I need, I'm VERY happy with my new Zine!!"4.5 starson by Wyldcat89
Pros: The camera is excellent, I love the layout of the phone and it's ease of use. Battery life is excellent! Regular calls and speaker phone calls are crystal clear.
Cons: Would prefer keys on keypad to be seperated, this is the one flaw would change.. but it's not as bad as some make it out to be. OS isn't the quickest but again, not a deterent for me.
Summary: I wanted a phone with good call quality for regular calls and using speaker phone, decent battery life, a nice camera and the ability check my email. Not much to ask for right.. It's not the most advanced smartphone, so don't expect it to rival a Curve or an Iphone, but it's quite nice for what it is. I could check my email and facebook page with no trouble at all. The signal strength is very good and calls are crystal clear, even on speaker phone. I'm most impressed with the battery life and the phone's ease of operation. The camera has a lot of features and learning them doesn't take long. If the Zine's options fit what you're looking for, it'll meet your expectations. If you're wanting a higher level smartphone, this may not be your best bet.
Upgraded from a Motorola Razr MP3 phone to the Zine. Also considered the Blackberry Pearl Flip and Nokia 5610. The Zine was the right fit for me and I absolutely love it!
