"Genuinely basic phone, which isn't a bad thing."3.0 starson by garciaog
Pros: -compact & simple design
-good call clarity
-long battery life
Cons: -Camera with no flash? Just skip building the phone with the camera altogether, then!
Summary: Got tired of/rarely used my Casio Commando smartphone, and downgraded to this to save money on a data plan. This phone is nice and compact, and has a decent QWERTY keyboard, which is exactly what I was looking for. Don't have a Bluetooth headset, so I can't comment on what others have said about it on this phone.
It's "rugged", but unlike the Casio, it isn't waterproof. Why call it "rugged" if it can't be immersed in water? I added a hard plastic case and Zagg screen protector on it just in case.
As for the mechanics of the phone, it sports a long battery life, and in-call clarity is strong. The "fake call" function is interesting. You can slyly push a side button four times, and 10-30 seconds later, the phone rings with a fake caller ID name/number. This is supposed to help you get out of awkward social situations. I know this is a "dumb-phone", but at least boost the photo resolution on the camera and add a flash, or just sell it as a camera-free phone. It can't be that difficult to add a LED flash. It does have video capability, too, but the same lighting issue arises.
In summary, this phone is for those that want just a phone and QWERTY keyboard. Its allure is its simplicity, and hopefully it will last until I can justify another smartphone and added data plan cost.
