It's tough, but...well, what's the point?

Summary: This handset feels nice in the hand, but that's about it. It's far too compromised. It's slow and often freezes/resets when it's trying to do literally anything. Maybe just had a faulty one, but did try hard to like it. Go for the CAT B15 if you need something tough.
Summary: I'll echo some other reviews. This is a basic Android phone, you can easily find this for £50 on any network. What those phones lack is substance and this handset has that in droves. Firstly, it may actually be the last handset you ever buy. The functions I use most are texting and Wi-Fi hotspot and it has those. I'm actually using the internet connection on the phone as I write this. Battery life is insane, 4 days on average use. Build quality is ridiculous.
Summary: I have been shopping for a tough mobile phone for quite a while, and i am really confused as to, get a smart phone which is not as tough or a normal phone which is a tough mobile and the screen is less likely to get broke, this jcb model seems allot of money and with a large screen could it get broke still ?
Summary: My boyfriend bought this phone after his old JCB phone finally packed it in. On the day of arrival the phone kept cutting out and freezing, and it has carried on doing this ever since. it sends messages to the wrong people, and has deleted applications from off the SD card. a big dissapointment.
Summary: It's a great tough phone i work in a garage building custom choppers and there is swarf from the drill's, oil,and dust and this phone can handle it all as well as rain even if it fall's off the top of a tool box it will not break.
Pros: All round good looking phone with touch sceen
Summary: Bought phone as in building trade thought would be a safe bet, on receiving this I had a faulty battery although the seller was excellent and bought me a replacement, three days later screen froze and had to be sent back to the manufactures to fix. They have been very helpful in finding the fault and replacing the phone with a new on. Like the phone has all the apps that I need just hope it will last with no more problems when it returns from manufactures.
Summary: Sits very snugly in the hand, very distinguished and draws attention. Wanted something which is different and not out of date in 6 months and selling at half price, (holds its value)Very robust and easy to use.(see below) Took the best part of a month to get my head round its operation. Never had a Smart phone before. There are published instructions on the net if you look hard but not very comprehensive, NO INSTRUCTIONS ARE PROVIDED WITH THE PHONE!
