"Avoid this phone."0.5 starson by t_n_d
Pros: -Long battery life (has lasted 2 or 3 days which is decent compared to today's smart phones)
-Feels light, not too bulky
Cons: -Slow processing/graphics
-Counter intuitive controls.
-Tiny storage space
-Poor mic (people have a hard time hearing me when I talk to them.
-The phone makes texting extremely difficult.
Summary: The graphics are slow. They barely keep up with my finger movements. The processor is slow. Things like even sending a simple text message take a long time.
The controls are counter-intuitive. For example, the button on the bottom which is either "Back" or "Return", is programmed very poorly. Let's say for example I'm in the phones settings then I set it down. I get a message from Bob later and I read it. I click the Back/Return button, and since I'm in Bob's message I assume it'll take me one level up to All Messages. Nope, it'll take my back to Settings. And if I hit it again it'll take me to wherever I was before that. I've never seen and probably never will see again a phone with such strange behavior. The feature is counter-intuitive, unnecessary, and frustrating.
There is absolutely no storage space on the phone. 300 messages? That will last the average person a few days before you have to delete everything. It's a cheap phone, sure, but I can buy a flash drive for $10 that would hold tens of thousands of messages. They seem a little behind the times on storage capacity.
Texting is a chore. Don't bother using the dictionary/prediction. As soon as you type something wrong, or capitalize a word, that will be set as the #1 entry for that word. The manual doesn't give a way to reset the dictionary, and try as I might, the #1 entry always seems to be the misspelled/wrongly capitalized/etc word. I had a phone 7 years ago with T9 prediction that worked better than this. How outdated can this phone possibly be?
Overall, AVOID THIS PHONE. I bought it because I was getting a new AT&T contract and I wanted something cheap, reliable, and easy to use. Cheap? Sure. Reliable? Reliably poor performance. Easy to use? Not very.
Please, do yourself a favor and get a different phone. It's cheap yes, but you WILL regret it. If you have any other option for phones PLEASE take them over this. You will be saving yourself from a lot of trouble.
