      I’m on a pay monthly contract, and this phone was actually a replacement for a terrible Samsung u600 that just decided to stop working one day. Customer services talked me through a few replacement models, and since my needs were quite simple [I asked for a phone that a) works, b) DOESN’T have a touch screen and c) has a decent 5 megapixel camera] I just agreed to accept this phone without knowing much more about it.

      It works.

      There’s no touch-screen.

      And there’s a 5 megapixel camera …

      I could tell you all about the features, but that would be boring - and you can find that information anywhere.

      The things I’ve been impressed with so far are: - The maps application, which is great for getting directions on the move - or storing a location, and planning the route before


      you leave and then opening it later.

      - The camera and video. The Camera is not great in low levels of light - or indeed indoor artificial light, unless the subject is quite still … but I’ve had some interesting effects with foreground objects sharp (autofocus) and background movement blurred, which is nice! I just find it handy to quickly snap a picture of something and transfer it via Bluetooth to my PC, or send it by MMS to a friend. And in daylight it’s pretty good. The video is surprisingly good too. The only annoying thing about that is the video files are not stored in your media folder - odd - the only way I’ve found to view them is to open the video application itself and play through there.

      - The slim design with distinctly few buttons on ...


      • the outer edges. That may sound odd. But bear with me: It’s not possible to accidentally turn something on or off by just picking up the phone with your fingers in the wrong place. I just hate that. Simple can be good.

        - The feel of it. Again, that sounds odd. Hmm. It’s comfortingly solid, as though it will sustain little damage if dropped - and it feels weighty enough - without being a brick. It’s just flat. There are no buttons sticking out at the sides (see above rant) no mouse-buttons, raised areas on the front face, or back. It’s just sleek and very easy to hold.

        The battery life is not too bad - usually 3 or 4 days for me (although I don’t heavily use games, maps and other apps - I do text a lot, use the web

        browser once or twice a day, the calendar fairly regularly, the camera a few times etc)

        It’s not entirely the bees-knees, there are a few issues. Like the wierd buzz it makes when you put it down on a hard surface (I kid you not, it gives a quick vibrate, odd) The buttons are not the easiest I’ve used - I find texting quite a bit slower, as I can’t skip over them quite as quickly, each one needs a good press. And it makes a bit of a clicking sound. That may put some people off …

        If you want a subtle, nice looking phone that works pretty well with plenty of features to keep you amused, then you can’t go too far wrong. If you want something more sexy, are a heavy texter, prefer larger screens or large keys then this phone is probably not the best for you.
