Pros Sexy, Extremely easy to sync with PC, Decent Screen Size, Decent Speakers, Useful Alarm Clock, Good Call Quality, 10MB internal memory, Plays/Records Videos, Bluetooth.
Cons Buttons could be more tactile, Blurry low-quality pictures, No Stopwatch, No Expansion Card Slot.
Summary Be warned, a tech fanatic or a mobile warrior will definitely be disappointed by this phone. That aside, the average student or housewives will be greatly impressed by this feature filled phone. Its easy for them to sync to the computer as well!
Set multiple(n repeatable) alarm settings that play the mp3 and volume you set. Didn't quite use the calendar enough as the screen wasn't big enough for that (128x128 pixels). Unfortunately there's no stopwatch (sometimes its fun to have a stopwatch around) but thats not a big problem for most of us.
The bigger setbacks are:
1. Very poor video recording settings (max 15fps and 30s clips). Although it is able to play higher fps videos smoothly.
2. Camera shutter is slow, resulting in blurry pictures. But good enough for taking landscape snapshots or friends.
3. Plays MP3 (great!) but there's no volume control for this(so all your mp3 plays at the maximum volume!).
In conclusion, if you're looking for an affordable phone that includes (though not necessarily of the highest quality) Camera, Vieo player (3GPP format), MP3 player, Alarm Clock, PC Syncing, Bluetooth, Calendar and Games, then this is the phone for you!
"Good phone"on by Niteprince
Pros Very sleek
Cons Very limited on space
Summary The phone is a great one. You can make phone calls and don't drop a call. If you get a unlocked phone, just be sure you call your carrer to setup the internet and your MMS. The phone is not setup for you. Took me 2 hours to find it on my one to set it up on my phone. You can use MP3 ringtones, but you can't use it as a music player. Your limited to 10MB of space and that fills up quickly. If you want to store music and photos, get a phone what will let you use a chip like MicroSD
Pros slim, sleek, sexy, Bluetooth enabled, still affordable.
Cons Bad battery time, low on memory (10MB), no expansion slot, poor address book.
Summary Bottom line: If you dont want to store mp3 songs, and talk less than two hours a day on mobile, go for it.
I was using my old-is-gold sony ericsson T630 when i decided to switch to a newer phone. After surveying the market the L6 caught my eyes. It is a slim, smart and sleek phone, one of the thinnest in market. (do check out samsung x820) The silver cover with blue keypad lighting is excellent aesthetically. It has a VGA camera and a separate button on the side to switch it on. Bluetooth enables you to take full advantage of sharing as well as using bluetooth headsets. Nice JAVA games are pre-loaded that you'll definitely enjoy. SMS, MMS and WAP/GPRS enabled, predictive text input uses iTAP rather than the more common T9, although users will get easily used to it.(not very different from T9)
Having said that, lets come to the pitfalls. The company labels it having a >5hrs talk-time, yet the phone fails to deliver it. After fully charging and using it multiple times, I could only get a maximum of 3 hours, and even less if i accidentally listened to an MP3 or used bluetooth. Thats very bad as compared to any otherphone. So you will keep on finding a socket to charge it! Although the phone software lacks a dedicated media player,(that can run in background or has equalizer), it supports MP3 playback. However like the phone the memory is also slim (10MB) and there is no expansion slot.
Finally, the address book software needs tweaking. You cannot store multiple numbers under the same name, and each entry has to be separate. That means if you want to save a mobile and an office number for John, you'll have to make two entries like John Mobile and John Office.
At PKRs 6200 (US$ 103), its a bad value for money. If you still like slim and trendy, go for SLVR L7 from the same manufacturer which has an optimized address book and expandable memory in addition to iTUNES for playing music.
Or why not add a few bucks and go for Samsung X820?
Pros sleek, slim, and inexpensive price matches its limitations
Cons SAR rating at 1.58
Summary this is a nice phone. I like to be able to put a phone in my pocket wo. feeling bulk. I got mine for 115 brand new online back in Aug. While hardly using it, I just sold it on ebay after deciding the SAR wasn't doing it for me and that the phone was surprisingly still holding its value.
though most I would guess don't care about SAR, for me it was the deal breaker. My take is the less radiation, the better.
for the time I had it, the call quality was good overall. I didn't even really bother with the camera since it's not that good in the first place.
but as far as cool factor, this phone has it. I was constantly surprised by the wow factor this little slim thing could bring. so that's worth something.
Pros CAMERA,SERVICE,BATTERY,SLEEK DESIGN,AFORDABLE
Cons NO ITUNES NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL THOUGH
Summary GRAT PHONE CHEAP WITH THE LEFT OVER MONEY YOU CAN BUY YOU AN I POD.IT LOOKS JUST AS GOOD AS THE SLVR BASICALLY THE SAME JUST NO ITUNES
