This is a perfect phone for (say) an older person who simply wants the basic functions of making calls and sending texts or a child getting a first phone so that parents can keep in touch.
It has a traditional design, with large keys and a clear, colour display. It is light weight and finished in an easy-grip black plastic that is unlikely to slip from the grasp. The keys have a positive feel to them so that they can be used with the necessary precision.
The menu is clear and intuitive: Phone Book, Messages, Call Log, Alarm, Calendar, Calculator, and ICE - an small application for holding essential medical information. The response times are quick: a modern-day chip, I expect, being asked to do nothing too sophisticated.
All the necessary functionality of a basic phone is therefore here, in a neat, inexpensive and easy-to-use package. Five stars.
