"Pleasing to those with VERY low expectations"2.0 starson by wjhamilton
Pros: nice look, easy to use
Cons: short battery life, mediocre call quality and signal stength, takes its time ending calls
Summary: I was looking for a basic phone and at first, this seemed like a nice find. I've been extremely dissapointed ever since. The battery life has been VERY short. After two days on a full charge and average talk times, I found myself with a dead battery. This is quite annoying when I have several days a week where I'm away from the home charger up to 20 hours a day. In standby only, I've gotten a max of about 3.5 days on a single charge. The signal strength and call reception is very poor. I find people ask me to speak up constantly when making calls. Also, when walking around my house, the signal goes from weak, to weaker whereas my wife's 3 year old Nokia exhibits none of the same problems. The final annoyance is the delay of 2 to 3 seconds when trying to end a call by using the "END" button as opposed to simply closing the phone. Other than that, it's a stylish, relatively easy to use phone. However, this phone does a poor job of its intended usage: making calls! After a month and a half, I've had enough.
