Archangel, Kidderminster Basic text and chat user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Bought this for someone who uses mainly a PHONE and is less interested in the 'other stuff' so it does the job. It is compact and neat and can do the extras if necessary. Good for the price and suitable for 'learners' and children, or people on a budget.
Bad points:
It is not really good enough for business and the dispay is not as good as my Samsung GS2 but that's no surprise.
Initially the battery life was shocking, considering it is used mainly for calls, but turned off Wifi and GPS and used App killer to extend time to a reasonable level.

Polly, Hereford Basic text and chat user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very good value for money for this type of phone. Easy to use with a clear screen. A really nice looking phone with pretty good sound quality.
Bad points:
The battery lasts less than 12 hours even though I only use the phone infrequently. I have downloaded a battery saver from 'market' and this has helped a lot. The screen isn't always as responsive as it could be and does seem to freeze from time to time.
