  • Excerpt: I no longer own this. I went through 2 phones, said fukit, got the Huawei Mercury. It went from OK to POOR quality everything. The keyboard was useful, the screen switched orientation for every program, but broke way way too quickly.
  • Pros: Slider Qwerty Keyboard, Great Microphone
  • Cons: Cheap plastic, Low Quality Camera, Low Quality Speaker

  • Summary: I purchased the phone because it is low tech and gives me that prepaid option. Yes it was a little lose and wiggled a bit but over all it was ok.

Great phone but does have some flaws

Entice, Samsung
2 January 2013
  • Summary: This phone was great for the first year of using it. After the year was up it started to get all glitchy and the screen started to not light up. Like it would go black or all white. The touch screen would still work and it is still working fine besides the screen messing up. I do admit to dropping it a few times and I do not really like how the battery always seems to pop out whenever you drop it.
  • Pros: fits in pocket well
  • Cons: not durable

User Review

Flowerr, Samsung
30 November 2011
  • Summary: This phone has fun features but it is very hard to see during the day. Its a user friendly phone and is easy to figure out without reading the book. The lock screen can be a bit of a pain when you are on an automated system. The one main thing I don't like is not having individual text tones.(my Moto had individual ring and text tones and thats what I miss the most.) One, can set up individual ring tones but the text is one sound for everyone.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, fun lil phone
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, no individual text tone

"Basic Phone w/Mediocre Perks"

genik5, CNET
12 May 2011
  • Pros: Compact, quick touch scroll, decent battery life (when charged properly), solid slider, good for a basic, non-smart phone
  • Cons: For my 1st touch screen, I expected better responsiveness. Worst part about this phone is the alarm. I used the alarm daily before it would randomly not go off. I found when you receive a text, it blocks the alarm (and for other unknown reasons). Also,

"Its alright, nothing special."

JulianDelphiki, CNET
31 October 2010
  • Pros: Touch Screen, Slide-out Keyboard, 2MP Camera. Those three features are what make it decent. Quick touch response time, fast UI overall. Not as fingerprint-prone as some touchscreens.
  • Cons: The biggest con, no app support. Sure, it may say it does and has a few apps available(most are way overpriced), but you cannot even install Java apps(you can even install those on a Moto RAZR). Way too reflective of a surface, cant use in sunlight.
