"Easy to use, with some flaws."3.5 starson by evolvedbeyondu
Pros: The slide out qwerty keyboard is great. The physical functioning of the slider is great too. It is springloaded so when you get to a certain point is slides open or closed quite easily. It is also a really simple and easy to use phone.
Cons: The one main issue I have with this phone is the placement of the voice command button; it is extremely easy to accidentally press.
Summary: In general the phone is great and I really like it. But the voice command button is a hassle. Even if the phone has all sounds off or vibrate, (i.e. I am in the library or class), When you hit that button the woman's voice still asks you to "please say a command." With the placement of the button and the ease with which it is triggered, without much movement of your finger you can hit it when close the slider after sending a text or when putting it in your pocket after reading a text and the phone is still unlocked for a few seconds.
The texting is great, and the way you can sort by contact is really helpful. It lets you follow conversations much more easily if you are going between multiple people at the same time.
The camera is not so great and for some reason they expect you to only want to take photos sideways so that is how the information on the screen is oriented when you go into picture mode. Oh, and no flash so forget about nighttime photos.
