1.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced, 2 Sept. 2014
This is actually a great golf ball but the price is ridiculously high. You can pick up a pack of 12 for between £20 and £25 from the golf depot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality product, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These really are a quality product. What i like is that you have to look closely to actually notice there is a screen protector on.
They fit great with the cut outs perfectly aligned. Also, they don't seem to affect the sensitivity of the touch screen as far as I can tell. I've had them on for about a week now and they still look great. If they deteriorate rapidly I will update the review. As for fitting they were about par for the course, though they have a grid pattern on them which some people might find useful in alignment.

1.0 out of 5 stars rubbish, 19 Feb. 2014
If anyone finds a decent case that actually works with this please let me know. If I were going to use this without a case it would be a 5 star product. However, as the back of the phone scratches very easily you absolutely need a case. There are two inserts but both are too small. You can actually use it without the inserts but then you have the faff of trying to marry it up and its not very stable. This is the case I am currently using and its very thin.

1.0 out of 5 stars big problem, 17 Feb. 2014
Update on my original review as of Aug 28th. Phone screen has cracked in my pocket 2 cracks right across the screen so now the top half of the phone won't respond to touch. Apparently if you look at the forums, this seems to be a common problem. So basically don't touch with a barge pole.

There is already a good comprehensive review by Peter Roo. I will just add my take on the phone. I have had the phone just over 2 weeks having preordered it from carphone wharehouse. The phone has a premium feel to it and is easily small enough to use one handed. Its superfast as you would expect with the top end quadcore processor. I downloaded the 300 game which looks graphically intensive and there was no lag at all. I used the panasonic pc companion app to transfer my contacts etc from my old phone (htc one s) which was relatively easy.

I like the option for expandable memory (i put a 64 gb sony micro sd card in (£35)). The quality of the screen is excellent, i know its 720p compared to the z1 1020p but its a smaller screen. The camera takes great pictures though i haven't tried it in low light conditions where apparently it can struggle on automatic mode.

The battery life for a smartphone this powerful is amazing. It has a stamina mode which turns off apps when the phone in sleep mode. You can customise it to suit yourself so certain apps will remain active if you so choose. I had 3 full days with low to medium usage and it had 20% left when I recharged it. When I have put in some heavy usage i will update the review.

The NFC connectivity is great, just place your phone next to a compatible device and it will automatically connect it. I have some wireless headphones and it was a breeze.

Downsides
The phone has scratch resistant glass on the front but they have decided to put an anti shatter film (ASF) over it that isn't very scratch resistant. When i first received my phone, i had to wait a few days for the case to arrive so i took really good care of it but the back scatches like you won't believe (the back is plastic). I would highly recommend that you put on a case and a screen protector the moment you unbox it. You can take the ASF off but for some apparent reason the sony logo is ingrained into the film so you will lose it if you do and the it will also more importantly void the warranty.

I purchased the sony charging dock so I wouldn't have to open and close the micro usb flap but this does not work with a case on ie. won't fit and i have 2 cases that are quite thin.

Conclusion
Fantastic phone for which I would have given 4.5 stars because of the ASF issue. Make sure you get a case for it.

Samsung B2710 Solid Immerse Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black (Water & Dust Proof)

4.0 out of 5 stars solid phone, 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a new work phone that was robust so I decided on this after a little research. I've had the phone for approx. 12 months and here's my take on it. If you send a mass of texts or use your phone a lot for things other than just calls then I wouldn't recommend it. It's not a very intuitive phone to use and the texting is cumbersome. However, if you want a tough, durable phone used primarily to make and receive calls then this is the phone for you. The battery life is really good, the longest I have gone without charging the phone is 13 days (though it was quiet in work) and I,ve never had less than a week out the battery. I have dropped the phone onto concrete several times and its still working.

1.0 out of 5 stars overpriced, 24 July 2013
The 1 star is just a warning about the price. These golf balls are actually very good but you shouldn't be paying more than £20 to £25 per dozen. They are currently £19.99 a dozen from the golf depot.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 2 Oct. 2012
Avoid at all costs, this is just a rip off at this price. It is most probably overpriced by 2k.

1.0 out of 5 stars seriously overpriced, 19 Aug. 2012
The graphics card advertised with this laptop really doesn't make the grade in a 2k laptop so avoid this product at all costs (well for this price anyway). Even the processor and Ram aren't the spec I would expect.

1.0 out of 5 stars be careful, 14 July 2012
Just be careful if you order this product and ask about the specs because in the product specifications the graphics card is listed as a GT520 which is an entry level laptop card ie. rubbish. However, if you expand the technical details the graphics card is described as a gtx 560m which is a lot better but still not good enough for a laptop with this price tag.
