Brilliant phone. Have put my Sainsbury's sim in it ...
on 8 July 2015
Brilliant phone. Have put my Sainsbury's sim in it and works well. Nice to hold & nice and light. Yes it is large at 275mm including antenna but that does not matter to me as I usually wear cargo trousers and the phone fits the pockets on these no problem. Phone has good signal, good loud and clear quality sound during calls. Good loud ring tones and loud message alerts. Good battery so far. Fun to test my skills with its only game Snake. Calculator good. Radio is clear and loud but not stereo hd quality and picks up lots of fm stations. Cannot comment on Blue tooth as I will not need to use it. Screen is colour and you can see it quite well outside in sunlight provided you turn the brightness setting up high. Would like to have seen the antenna made of rubber as in a rubber duck antenna as the phone's antenna is sturdy-ish plastic and could be venerable to getting snapped off if you catch it hard on something but i'm not going to mark it down for this as it is a good phone. For the money I paid I think it is a bargain and you can't go wrong if you like me like the old retro 80's- 90's and phones with simple features that is a breath of fresh air to use compared to modern smart phones with rubbish batteries that are a waist of time for your brain and sanity. It's good to just turn the brick on for 9 hours a day, make some calls and not have to wet nurse it. I certainly get noticed walking about with it and when I'm having a pint down the local everyone asks about it and has to pick it up with a smile on their faces and have a go. I sense they are yearning for times gone by. They want one.
