Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
When navigating to different menus it tends to skip them and if you are texting and go back a couple of time to correct mistakes it completely deletes the whole text. or if you take to long to text between each word the screen goes blank and then you have lost the message and have to start again.

Gary, Tamworth

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's a nice little slimline phone which has reasonable features, and is good value for money for anyone who isn't bothered about a phone having all the latest features.
Bad points:
The camera isn't great (mainly due to it not having a flash) and the battery life is far from great.
