Excerpt: This is probably the BEST non-smartphone ever to have been manufactured. I have actually returned to use it instead of my Galaxy S2. The J108i has everything you can ask for in a phone (USB, RSS, google maps for navigaion, 3G, 3,5mm out, track ID, voice recorder, timer and other very useful gadgets that aren't always standard) but what makes this phone stand out from the rest is that it is extremely user friendly. The shortcuts and functions are always in the right spot and the right time making usage very easy and reliable. It seems as if the phone and the OS has gone through rigorous beta- and/or customer testing before being put on the market, something other brands DON'T seem to do at all (I am looking at YOU Nokia!). Battery life is longer than usual also. The numpad design is very comfortable and its smart design makes it hard to unintentionally push the wrong button (which is a very common problem with touchscreen and slim design numpads). Accidental rebooting has never occured for me though I have been using the phone for many years). The OS is stable and has never "frozen" or anything like that. The only negative thing maybe is the web browser that has not been able to keep up with the development of mobile surfing but it is a small price to pay, especially if you have a pad or tablet with you anyway. Also, the processor might lag temporarily sometimes if may things happen at once (incoming message while listening to music and browsing the web) but I guess that is acceptable for a phone this size. The camera is weak and there is no flash but whatever, it's no big deal really, it's a PHONE goddammit. If you are getting SICK of the smartphone hype, for one reason or another, but you don't really feel like going Doro straight away, the J108i is the perfect middle road. My advice is to buy a couple of them if you can find because they are out of production and retail- you won't regret it. This is THE best non-smartphone ever made.
Pros: Long battery life, Easy to get to functions, very durable , cheap, good, works fine, good design, 1.Easy to use, worth the price !!, reliable
Cons: Bad camera, web browser is obsolete, no flash
Pure and simple

Excerpt: Give it a time and you'll not want another phone. Small, convenient, usefull -attributes that many expencive models/makes are lacking of.
