Cheap and Effective

  • Summary: This was a replacement phone for my mother. She uses it everyday without any issues. The form factor sucks for texting, but she does not do that much anyway.

Great phone but can't by accessories like car charger

Caraleisa, Amazon

  • Summary: This sales page didn't say international, and I bought it for my husband, as he wanted something simple to use right here in the USA. The box and packaging were all in Spanish, but once I put his Sim card in, it switched to English. I found the English version of the manual online. He loves the phone, good volume, holds a charge a nice long time, but I have been trying to buy a car charger for it and getting nowhere.

Good for the price

  • Summary: Picked up a couple of these for my teenage sons as cheap "first phones". The boxes had me worried at first, because everything was in Spanish. The phones themselves let you set the language (which had English as the default anyway). The single game included on the phone is still in Spanish, and so is the title of the central menu item (messages). Those don't really bother me at all. So these phones are exactly what I was looking for.

Good budget phone

Osang, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: I must say I love Samsung E1086L's size and the sound it produce from FM Radio. The battery is great, better than my Samsung Galaxy Mini Android phone. The only problem is the SMS' font size--too small for my taste, but overall a nice budget phone you can rely.
  • Pros: Long lasting battery, Loud sound, Nice flashlight
  • Cons: No 3.5mm jack, No camera, No MP3 player

  • Summary: Good product. It is worth the money, totally. If you are not getting a smart phone, you may want to get this phone for its cheap price compared to other phones of this type.

Hard to get a basic phone nowadays

D. Scoggins, Amazon
23 February 2011
  • Summary: I was looking for a phone with no frills. This Samsung E1086 is that phone. I had 2 real requirements. Predictive text and no WAP(Mobile Web/internet). Having come from a Samsung A107 flip phone I had high hopes for this model, most of which were met. I will break it down. PROS: Size and feel of the phone are good, it is all plastic but feels well built. Keypad has a good feel to it and is easy to use. Backlight for keypad and screen is very good.

Does What I Need It To Do

Frances McIntosh, Amazon
23 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this phone to make and receive brief urgent calls. It does that just fine. Reception is ok (at least here; I haven't gone far from home yet). The sound quality is poor but doesn't interfere with understanding what people are saying. The headphones (included with the pone) improve that somewhat. Initially there was a glitch with receiving calls, but a call to my carrier got that resolved.

Not fancy, just what I needed

Slappyfin3, Amazon
23 February 2011
  • Summary: I've been using this phone for about 4 months now. Initially I just got it as a temporary phone after breaking my beloved SE Walkman and none of the smartphones being offered by my carrier were appealing to me. Anyway, so far my relationship with this phone has been great. I use it mostly for texting and the keypad is made from a very nice rubber-plastic material. There's a nice tactile response when you push the buttons which I feel helps make typing a lot easier.
