Janet, Plymouth

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I really like Samsung phones, which is why I had this phone, the only thing I'm finding at the moment is I'm too quick when I text, as it can't keep up with me, at least I'm hoping it's that!. the phone is easy to use, camera is good, I thought the phone had a flash for the camera but it didn't, I used the flash for my other phone as a light as well, especially when I stayed with my daughter. the add a word menu is great so handy, especially when I abbreviate, which is allot, the loud speaker is really good as well, I use it as my hearing is not as good as it used to be and I find I can hear better when I use that instead of a straight forward call, I'm still trying to work out how to have a different ring tone for my MMS texts so then I know what sort of text I'm receiving, I'll work it out I usually do
Bad points:
No flash light, no games that are complete, only ones you have to pay for so not so good. At the moment that is all I can think of.

Sarah, Surrey

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
So far this phone has been really good, I've always had Nokia's so it took me a while to get used to the differences but so far have not really had any major problems with it. It is nice and compact and fits into the phone pocket in my handbag. There are lots of choices of wake up alarms which is very useful. I like the look of it.
Bad points:
Only some minor issues:- The keypad has already started clicking like it's been used a lot. You have to press the off button for ages for it to turn off. My previous phone has a timer for the silence function which would have been nice to have had it with this phone. The camera is not great, but that could be because I've not worked out all the different settings yet!
