Excerpt: ~~~Intro~~~ I bought this phone a month before Christmas from a friend for £20 and by the time Christmas came I was glad to replace it. The phone is a flip phone with many features. ~~~Looks~~~ The phone itself is not ugly looking; it has a sleek and stylish inside (where the buttons and screen are) they are arranged neatly with the navigation circle surrounded by other buttons.
Excerpt: i have recently thrown 1 of these phones in the bin. after having the phone for 6 months i eventually got fed up of the poor reception and intermitant switching off on its own accord. although you do get 2 batterys 1 slim and 1 fat.the battery does last a fair bit unless your on the wap and then i found the battery gets really hot when browsing wap.
Excerpt: I must admit from day one of owning this phone i had nothing but problems. I was acutally glad for the day it went. 3 where my main problem but the phone itself didn't help. It lost messeges occasionally, after 3 months of 3 tyring to find out what the problem was the phone went back the the shop for an upgrade on the service package. This did help but they could never track down the missing messeges and it made me wonder if any more since misterisly went missing.
Excerpt: I have found this an excellent item, the battery life isn't to bad, it holds its charge for a good fews days if you don' use that much, its not till you start using it that it seems to drain the battery. Good contract pricings with 3 only draw back is the 30days vailidation if you use pay-as-you-go. brilliant for taking pictures glad it has a slight zoom on it. Brilliant screen, i have had mine since befor christmas and has lasted me alot longer than most phones.
Excerpt: I got this phone in about october last year, and sold it a few weeks afterwards. It was RUBBISH! I will start with the negatives to get them out the way: - Poor battery life - Could only use 3g in certain places - no games - no selection of ringtones - boring menus - poor reliabilty (often froze, crashed and switched itself off, most of the time when doing something important like writing and SMS) - 3 network are very expensive for calls (£10 minium a month or nothing at...
Pros: Good photos, Good video, camera light
Cons: poor reliability, takes ages to charge, phone is HUGE !
Excerpt: This phone has everything you could want on it, The only problem is the passing comments you have to live with, such as my title ""You could build a house with that" I have had this phone for 10 months now, I had the NEC 313 for 6 months prior to that, and this is just an upgrade to that. Why pay the massive prices for other phones when you could buy this, as long as you can spend the £15 in 30 days, its excellent value for money.
Excerpt: I have been using the e616 for past 6 months, I can honestly say that it has been overall a very reliable phone, a little prone to dropping blue tooth connexion at times. The keyboard is big and well spaced, ideal for those of us with chunky fingers. The battery lasts me 2 - 3 days between charges and the phone appears to be resillient to knocks, always dropping mine. the camera produces good images and has a built in light function, also handy as a torch in the dark.
Excerpt: My previous phone was a sagem, it got this for christmas but the pay as you go 3 tariff was not good at all. After 30 days whatever credit you had was taken away regardless, also you cannot access the internet because 3 managed to block that, also the bluetooth doesnt work on it. Like some phones this was all hype and nothing to back it up. this phone would be good if it was on a contract as my main concern was for the pay as you go 3 not the phone.
Pros: Easy to use once you get the hang of it .
Cons: It lights up when its charges, not good when trying to sleep .
Excerpt: My 12 month contract with 3G with the NEC E616 phone has just expired and I am so pleased. The phone itself looks quite nice (some people do say it is a little on the big side) with its large screen. This phone comes with the following features. Bluetooth, Colour Screen, GPRS, IRDA, Infrared, MMS enabled, Polyphonic ringtones, Streaming video, USB connection to your computer, Vibration.
Pros: easy to use
Cons: very poor battery performance . Customer service bad
Excerpt: I have owned this make of phone for about 10 months and I like the phone very much. two camera's and video capability make this an excellent all round phone, the clam shell design means the phone can fit into my pocket with no problems at all, text messages are easy to form and forward on. the videos are always excellent but you will need to get a bigger memory stick if you want a lot on your phone.
Pros: Compact, Light, Very consumer friendly
Cons: battery life could be longer, Midi ringtones only .
