Great features and easy to use. Bad battery life.
Overall its features are very good. The battery life is terrible. The icons are easy to use and organize. The tools are also very easy to use and work well. Phone usage and volume are great. The querty keyboard is responsive but I have large fingers so often will type the wrong letter and have to redo it. It is sluggish to go into the keyboard and that is annoying. The one thing that holds this phone back is the battery life as it is terrible. When you turn it on you must turn off all apps, which helps some. If you talk a lot, be prepared to talk with the charger on. I mostly text so if I am careful, I can get 2 days of usage on the battery. If I have to talk, it will last 45 minutes maximum until the battery is gone.

A low-end alternative to a more pricey smart phone. Battery dies quickly!
Lots of features including a TV app. But the main screen is confusing to use and icons are huge - hiding your background pictures. The battery life is expected to reach 3 hours of talk time, but in all actuality I'm lucky to get 1.5hrs in right after removing the phone from the charger. Takes a short time to charge the battery so that is a definite indication of how little power the battery provides. The only way to create a new text message is to open the menu and then going into messages, can't go through the texting shortcut icon on main screen. Battery life indicator icon stays full until the last 15mins and then quickly drops giving you between 2-5 warnings that the battery is about to die (depending on whether you're currently on the phone or not). This is not the top of the line device I was hoping for but it'll do for now. I haven't tested the internet or any data-using features because of the amount it costs for a data plan, but I can only imagine how much faster this phone will die while using the full features it's equipped to offer.

Overall good practical phone.
So far a good phone for the price. I like the size of the screen. Texting is really easy on it and I like the side menu you can pull over. So far no problems except the battery that came with it died after full charge in about 45 minutes. I was sent a new battery for free. All good.

Decent phone for the money with lots of fuctions and good sound quality.
Phone quality is good. Sound and volume is good. I also bought the phone because of the camera which is also good. Good by my standards are 4 of 5. Cons, I don't like the mini USB connection that is AT THE TOP of the phone , pretty much makes talking on the phone while the phone is charging very annoying, also the phone's battery consumption is frequent.If you can live with that, it's a decent phone (for the money), if you talk alot, I recommend a second battery.Has alot of neat functions, 3 Desk tops, lots of internal storage, controls are pretty straight forward, like the touch screen that has a slight pulse to let you know that you have hit the key. It's not an Iphone or a Nokia n95, but you should be able to pick one up in good shape for under a hundred with charger and storage card, so for that kind of money, I recommend it, if you can deal with the Cons I mentioned.
