Confirmed purchaser Tech savy, older

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Good for phone calls, nice looking phone
Bad points:
Worst thing is visibility of the keypad, in some light conditions I just cant see anything on the keys - very hard to send texts. Hard to run apps too - phone asks for so many permissions that it is impossible to run some.
