"not a great phone"2.0 starson by shinbet
Pros: speaker phone
Cons: weak reception, lousy ringtones, poor picture quality, low ear piece volume
Summary: I have this phone for about 10 days now. I used to have Nokia 6010 from cingular. I thought the phone although was very cheap, it had a great reception, and earpiece volume, and great battery life. I switched to sprint, and after research I bought LG PM-225. Here are my thoughts: Forget about the camera. It has poor images quality. Speaker phone does not have clarity, although people on the other end can hear you well. Ringtons: I like traditional rings. I don’t like musical and other teenage style midi ringtones. My old Nokia 6010 had only one usable ringtones. This phone has none. Why cant they put a set of regular professional ringtones??
When the battery is low, and you’re on the phone, you get no warning ! the phone just shuts off. The phone reception is not very good, although this may be a Spring PCS service issue, I’m not sure. The phone has a low radiation number, and I think that’s good.
When you’re talking on the phone, the screens shut off completely (maybe to save battery??). You have no control over this. This can be annoying since maybe while your talking, you wanna find out the number or the time, etc. you have to press any buttons to get the screen back on.
And the last thing, the highest volume on the earpiece is not loud enough, so if you are walking on street, street noise will deter your conversation. My old Nokia had great volume. I don’t think I would purchase this phone again for $80. I would had imagined in year of 2005, they can make flawless phones.I hope my opinions help.
