Summary: Decent and basic phone but with a very cheap squeaky plastic feel. For me, the most negative feature is that there is no external indication (such as an LED) when a text has been received. I have to keep checking the display menu to see if any text messages have been delivered.
Excerpt: Just over the Christmas period, typically, since all shops and services are shutting down, my HTC smart phone broke, and I could no longer access my text messages.

Excerpt: I won this in a raffle at work well over a year ago now. I thought nothing of it and threw it into a cupboard. That was until I dropped and shattered my mobile and needed a quick solution. This is when the Samsung GT E1080 came into my life.
