Phone so-so, Reviews INVALUABLE

Lynn H., Newegg
30 January 2012
  • Summary: In the US I had no issues with not being heard, here in Israel everyone says they "CAN'T HEAR ME". The cellular provider says they can't fix it because I didn't buy the phone from them. Anyone have any ideas? Battery life so-so when I have internet access but Very Good when offline totally (e.g.
  • Pros: In the US I had no problems with internet access. When I got to Israel I had none and even the cellular provider tech couldn't find the answer. Thanks to the reviews on newegg I solved the connection issue myself. I had to define the Access Point Network. Price, size, smartphone features, worked ...
  • Cons: Keys are too small and/or too close together and make texting VERY ANNOYING. I wouldn't buy this model again just because of that. Battery life so-so when I have internet access but Very Good when I was offline totally.

Great Phone - But Not This Version

Albert H., Newegg
31 December 2010
  • Summary: This really would have been a nice phone had it been the true i5500 which comes with Android Market. If you are not interested in downloading apps at all, this is a great starter smartphone to give you all the common features you'd want.
  • Pros: Very responsive despite only having a 600MHz proc. Screen is bright and clear. Pack lots of features in what is essentially marketed as a starter smartphone.
  • Cons: Beware this is the i5503 version of the phone, not exactly the i5500. And unforutnately, the i5503 does NOT ship with Android Market, so if you're looking to download apps you are out of luck.

  • 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.
  • 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: 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.
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: Lack of battery,Looks horrid,Bad camera
