I brought this phone because I wanted to downgrade back to the basics, quick functionality with non of the complication. people who are used to using smartphones with 16million colors and high pixels may not adjust to this phone at first. but i am very happy with it.

**the key quality of this phone is the unique battery life, I charged it three days ago and have used it heavily and the bars are still halfway. The way phones used to be 12 years ago, or shall I say the way its meant to be, oh those were good old days. :(((

for a basic phone, it does pack a bit of punch when it comes to features such as

- Mp3 Player - it is quite basic, it cannot be played in the background, but its not bad, theres a sound effect feature, which is quite welcoming, and an auto off feature, shuffle, repeat, but no cover art.

- Radio - Good reception, you can even record live broadcasts, but I dont recommend recording music, because it only records in 14kbps in my estimation, so only useful, for talk shows, news and what have you. (it does play in the background.)

- Wap Browser - its good for information by text, or maybe you want to look up an article, it comes pretty fast too, if you want something more than that, then you will be disappointed, as the resolution is too low for that and its only GPRS/EDGE. but as saving grace it does manage to download videos, music and images from certain sites, but streaming a simple no no.

- SMS - this is simple and sweet to use, and has an SOS feature, which I dont use but could come handy. it can store 300 messages

- Organiser - Theres a calender included that can store a whopping 400 appointments, it also has a memo, world clock, converter and a calculator.

I purchased this on the back of the reviews. Taking into account I did not want a smart phone or 3g I decided to go for this one. I like the slide function as its easy to use and covers the keys when shut. I had no problem with getting the back off to put the sim and battery in. Yes its a bit tight and fiddly but thats what you want it to be. I dont want the back falling off because its loose. If you are careful the back comes off no problem.I had no trouble with bluetooth and connecting to my voice activation in my car which is called Blue & Me. I also had no trouble connecting to the internet, yes its a bit slow but still I had no problems, however thats not what I bought the phone for. I bought it for ease of use bluetooth that works, easy TXT's and clear speaker volume when speaking to someone. It ticks all these boxes. Even the cameras not that bad, its not good but better than none at all. The BIG BIG plus is the battery life. It really does live up to the comments of others. I charged it as you do when it arrived and on using the phone on and off throughout the day it lasted 7 days. This is a huge advantage to me as my previous slide phone which was a lot more expensive than this one only lasted a mximum of 3 days with the same use if you are lucky. This is my first Samsung and as you can tell I am most impressed.

First off, a couple of confessions. This is only my second ever moby: I'm a 40 something bloke and have never quite cottoned on to mobile phone culture so my knowledge of the world is limited to say the least. I'll also add that this phone spends most of its time turned off. It's a bit more than an emergency phone and it comes out when I'm away from home but it's certainly not used as a landline replacement.

Having said that, I've been using this phone for about a year now and like it a lot. It's small, compact and easy to use. It's quite good looking (although my teenage daughters would disagree) in a sleek, shiny black sort of way and although it's not a smartphone neither does it look like a first generation brick. The screen is clear and bright and can be read well in sunlight. The buttons are also easy to use and the numbers come up on the display in very large font as you dial.

There is also a "suggested number" facility, which reads the number as you dial it and tries to predict who you might be calling. The menu system is fairly easy to follow and there is a customisable short-cuts function which also helps make things easy.

I bought a micro-SD card so that I could use this as an MP3 player and it performs that function well enough using the HF headset that comes with the phone.

The camera (1.3Mpix) is OK but if you're used to even a bog standard digicam, photos taken with the phone will look awfully pixy.

There are only a limited number of apps on the phone and no games.

The phone can be charged from your PC and you can download software to manage the phone's setup and transfer stuff to and from the SD card.

This is a decent enough phone for your basic needs. The sound quality is good for calls, and the volume is pretty decent. The speaker phone function also works well.

The camera is not fantastic, but it can play music (I have not tried the FM radio yet). And I simply moved over my old SD memory card so I was happy enough. The phone feels very solid in my hand, and the slide is good. It does connect to the internet, and the integrated Facebook application is okay. I didn't buy it for internet use though, and I would not recommend it for this. If you want to go on the web with your phone, buy a smart phone.

Two things worth mentioning though. I am a bit cautious when taking the back off to get at the battery and SIM card, as it feels a bit stiff and I am afraid of breaking it. So take care when removing the back, but you do need to use a little bit of force.

Also, I have had problems connecting this phone to my computer, both via Bluetooth and the data cable I picked up on ebay for a couple of quid. The basic Microsoft Bluetooth software (and for that matter Ubuntu) works fine, and I can transfer files over.
BUT I cannot get the phone to work with Samsung's own 'New PC Studio', which is slightly annoying. I have used Samsung's older PC Studio 3 programme in the past with an older Samsung phone, and wanted to back up my contacts and messages. Looking around on the internet, this is not that unusual, but I have not found a solution. I think the problem is possibly Samsung's drivers, and if they have not updated them by now, I don't think it is going to happen.

Still, this is a good, if basic phone, and I would recommend it.
