Ok, for the money...

Summary: I have experienced a few quirks with this phone. I do not like that I have to go through contacts, then groups, then family to get to the people I contact the most. Also, the phone often will not start up and I have to take the battery out and then it will start. I like the size for me and the price was reasonable for an older phone.
Pros: Nice size, good screen, decent features overall.
Cons: Maybe Samsung copied Apple, but not very well - this ain't no iPhone. This touch screen often ignores my input...even repeated input. The predictive input keypad is a joke. Things that the iPhone interprets/fixes on the fly so easily this one hardly ever
Excerpt: A horrible phone, terrible for gaming, taking photos, horrible screen resolution, horrible size screen for text. HORRIBLE PHONE! im getting a HTC!! Slow and laggy ui. Bad battery life even with little use. Wifi a small advantage, tends to crash. many other better phones for a similar price range. lower than low end!!!!
Summary: I've been using this phone for around a year now. (You may see my first impressions review below.) To be frank, I'd stay away from this phone. You cannot download apps onto this phone in fears of making it crash and slow down. Don't bother with customisations as this'll make doing the simplest of tasks very hard! Moreover, the keyboard is IMPOSSIBLE TO USE. Adding contacts is confusing (As if you put them on the Sim THEY WON'T SHOW UP!).
Pros: The Navigation is okay and just about does the simple things.
Cons: The keyboard is impossible to use and you can't really do much with it.
Summary: the battery doesn't last long and every body iv talked to with this phone says it warns of low space but they've deleted every thing they can and it doesn't help and the phone keeps on rejecting messages for no such reason
Summary: Ok so i bought this phone almost a year ago and i have to say THIS WAS THE WORST YEAR OF MY LIFE (in the way of phones). I upgraded to this phone from one of those terrible alcatels and i can honestly say even my alcatel was better than this pile of disappointment... I'll start my rant at the general look of the product; it looks cute but the screen is SO SMALL. I mean if you're going to make a screen that small, atleast give the phone a keyboard?!
Summary: I got it for my 11th birthday and now I am 12. I absolutely hate it and I hate everything about it apart from its easy to use. I think its quite good if you want a 'first phone' for children and pre-teens like me. I wouldnt say that its very appropriate for adults and I couldnt really see an adult using it. My Samsung Galaxy Europa gt-i5500 keeps on automatically turning off and I am not very pleased with it. I am definitely on the hunt for a new phone.
