Most helpful reviews

Andii, Newcastle upon Tyne Business or web user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Decent screen size. Easy to figure out how to use. can swivel on both sides and the speed on the internet is good. Android version has a lot of improvements over 1.3. Does what I want it to do and very reasonable price for me. I love that I can have it on all day and use it and it will be nowhere near empty battery.
Bad points:
not many of these. the position of the on switch means sometimes it's vulnerable to being put on when wretling it out of a pocket -but that's true almost anywhere.

Robert, Barnstaple Music and entertainment lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Big screen. Micro SD slot(up to 32Gb) pity you have to remove the battery to get at it. Nice keyboard app.
Bad points:
Too much pre-installed junk (e.g. why do I have to waste valuable memory on silly games etc.) should at least have the option to uninstall anything you dont want or need.

Robert, Leeds Business or web user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Responsive touch screen; very clear visuals. Has been a brilliant first smartphone. Has a camera; can take to to 32GB sd card. Nice little speaker; does not really lag. Has 3G. Just a superb value for money phone. I 'flashed' it successfully to unlock it using instructions on giff gaff forum. Some brilliant Android free apps; great for F/Book/Twitter/Social networking.
Bad points:
Camera could be better for indoors. Screen is plastic; no camera at front of phone. However can't really expect all these for the price.
