5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, easy to fit, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Took about 25 mins to disassemble, 5 to fit, 10 to reassemble.
Be sure to push the end with the edge connector all the way in. You have to bend the cable over somewhat so you can push against the solid part of the connector - don't be shy!

Requires scissors to open - I just wasted 5 mins and injured myself because I didn't have any to hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust, bargain, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works perfectly, was very cheap and no cost-cutting was evident anywhere. In particular the plugs seem very robust and fit snugly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks just like real glass, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The good: They look just like glass in every way. There are no seams or anything like that, they are a good size and I like the design.
The bad: They arrived in second hand condition from "All in one store" with many little scratches and blemishes, like a real glass after 10 rounds in a dishwasher. Part of the damage was caused because they had been rammed hard inside each other, but I don't know to what extent the rest was caused by mishandling and how much by them being probably being softer than real glass.
Also they are (as you might expect) lighter than a real glass, so the illusion is soon "shattered" (see what I did there?) once you handle an empty one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Large seams all the way up, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike in the photo (and in other reviews), the ones I received from "All in one store" had immediately noticeable seams running all the way up the glass (not just on the base) on two sides. Additionally one had a damaged lip which makes me concerned about their robustness (the lips on mine are quite thin and slightly sharp). I am returning them and will enquire of another seller whether the seam is normal.

4.0 out of 5 stars All greek to me, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mine had the language set to Greek and the seller didn't include instructions on how to change it, nor could I find them online. I managed to change it by trial and error. The instructions (with crude transliteration) are:
1. Long press of star key to unlock if required
2. Middle button
3. Cog icon
4. 5th option (Tnyeowvo)
5. 2nd option (Lywooa)
6. 2nd option (English)

About the phone itself:

It is even more basic than I thought it would be. For example, you can't even set different alarm times on different days even though this feature wouldn't have added anything to the cost of the phone.

The standby time is quoted at up to 620hours (26 days) which is similar to my previous phone which really did last 4 weeks, but this is down to 3/5 after a week.

The dual SIM aspect works well, for me having a button to switch SIMs works better than the two dial keys found on other phones. For receiving calls both SIMs are active at the same time (as per specs).

It uses Samsung's proprietary charger connector which is a pain (again, as per specs).

No problems with voice or reception quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time, 17 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not sure whether the product is completely useless, or they just don't test anything.

The unit I had powered up, but:
* There was hardly any radio reception when it was plugged in.
* When running from battery the radio reception was poor, with lots of background noise.
* Using the radio was a pain in terms of tuning etc.
* When listening to music from the sd slot there was even more background noise, a sort of AM radio type buzzing that gave me a headache
* Changing the volume sometimes caused it to lock up.

Returned as faulty (which, to Amazon's credit, was exceptionally easy to do).

4.0 out of 5 stars Really works, including UK keyboards, 17 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As indicated by others this one actually works.

However, I've taken a star off in protest at the packaging. As well as being completely unnecessary and bulky, it is very hard to get into. Even the instructions are confused.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed, 17 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am using the radio and the aux in. The sound quality is excellent for the size and would be adequate as PC or laptop speakers in many situations. The radio reception is also excellent. The controls are very easy to use. The finish is good quality.

I did not found the display too bright as some others did. At head height it is easy to read. Others have commented there is no space for a battery to keep the time during a powercut. However, I found it does hold the time long enough to move it from room to room and therefore for short powercuts - for me and probably most people is better than having to buy a battery.
