Looking for a phone where you can just make calls, send a text or two and have a calculator never too far away? Then you need this phone in your life, a nice lightweight handset from Samsung, who really have thought of everything.
Don't expect much from the GT-E1230, this is an entry-level phone made for people who just want to make calls, text, and do a few other bits. There is no web, 3G, Bluetooth or camera, this is for those of you less technical, or just don't want an expensive smartphone.
So why did I get one? Simple, I just needed a phone to call and text as my LG's screen died, the rest of it works, but as I don't want to open another contract - I got this and put my old SIM in, and off it went. Sadly, my contacts were lost, but my texts took to it like a duck to water.
This is a nice phone, easy to see keys and lightweight, and has a speaker for use with the speakerphone system. Granted, the screen is not that large, and the text isn't great, but this is fantastic for someone who doesn't really use a mobile a lot. Maybe good for an emergency phone?
This mobile is really easy to use too, within 3 minutes you are able to use this, have the time and date setup; and have all your numbers quickly put in.
There are some extras with this, you do get one game, and you have an FM radio, which can take a 3.5mm jack, so you can use your own earphones.
What do you get in the box then? You get headphones and a mic, the charger and the phone. With this SIM free edition, you can just put any SIM card (no micro-SIM though) and use as you would with your old phone. This phone will easily fit in any pocket and case.
Great phone, if I have anything else to add to this I will report back to this review, but so far, so good and well worth the tenner I paid for it.
