Kirsten, South Ruislip Basic text and chat user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I love the phone it has been relatively easy to work out how to use. The radio works everywhere I go and the music apps to download free music is great. I am really pleased with the camera too.

My previous phone was an I-phone 4 apart from the screen being smaller I actually prefer this phone and it is much more robust which is what I need as I am out walking/running in all weather. The online support is really good as well if you need it. All in all really pleased with the phone and am recommending to all my friends!
