"a fun, but simple phone, that's super small"4.0 starson by yayfun795
Pros: small, great screen, fun, thoughtful features
Cons: low picture quality, annoying low battery alarm
Summary: After my last samsung phone, I swore I'd never buy another product by them, but this was just the phone I wanted, and hey, t-mobile will let you exchange it if you you decide you just hate it. The best part of this phone is really just how attractive it is. I wanted a slider phone, purely because it's fun, and this was the only one I found that felt reasonably sturdy and still managed to fit into my budget. I've had it for a couple months now and it's holding up really well. The screen is beautiful, and has the great feature of switching to a low power mode when the phone isn't being used, so that bright screen doesn't drain the battery. It's really tiny, small enough that I carry it around in my pocket all the time, but it's still really easy to use despite it's small size. If you have really big hands, you might want to get a bigger phone, but my hands aren't small by any means and I have no trouble using it. It has some useful little features like alarms, a calculator, a timer, voice memo, and even unit conversion. The camera is great for setting pictures to caller ID, setting pictures as the phones wallpaper, and the occational picture message when you see something that they just have to see to believe, but really that's all it's good for. The pictures look great on the phone's little screen, and not really anywhere else. Since that's all I wanted the camera for, that was fine by me. If I want to take great photography, I'll bring a camera, not a phone. Because of the screen, the battery life is completely dependent on how much you play with it. The more you're messing with it, the more power the screen drains. It'd last a long time if I could stop playing with it. The only thing that really irritates me is the low battery alarm. It starts going off hours before the phone is actually going to die. I left it sitting unused one day, and the alarm was going off every several minutes for over 4 hours. I really don't need that much warning. I've started puting it in silent mode when that happens, so it no longer irritates me.
