Christine , Derby Girly, colourful, traditional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
From a girly point of view the themes are great, I have one set up that knows what date it is and if e.g. it's Chinese New Year 26th January or New Year the phone has a display of fireworks.
Really easy to use and the colours it comes in are gorgeous too.
Bad points:
Doesn't have any.
