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. Other phones I have owned have included an LED so you could see at a glance if a new text message had been received.
Summary: There is nothing wrong with the functionality of this phone: battery life is very good, sound quality and reception fine, usability fair and value for money good if you shop around a little. It falls down in one significant respect, which is that the single-button locking of the keypad was invented by an incurable optimist.
Summary: I brought this as a temporary phone and as a backup if my smartphone ever died. The phone is light and small, feeling robust and is not likely to break if you drop it. It does the basics of calling and texting without much fuss. However the screen quality is terrible made worse by the poor choice of backgrounds/themes which just make it even harder to read. Not at all like the screen looks on the product description.
Finally found a phone easy enough for my mom to use!

Summary: I bought this phone because I needed a battery life of at least a week. The phone provides this, but it can struggle, like any other, when the signal is very faint. I took it on a cycle trip to France, and found that it was fine, but the ferry crossing drained the battery. The main downside I have found is the screen. It tends to be very washed out, and hard to read.
Summary: Bought for my 83 year old father. No fancy stuff,so I assume battery life will be good, just a mobile fit for purpose. Works fine, just the ticket for Dad when he is out and about in the car, ( I programmed breakdown numbers in.) And for the price paid = peace of mind. I recommend this unit.
