I had to upgrade to a Bluetooth capable phone so that if people call me I can answer the phone while driving and this one caught my eye. It was so easy to use, I didn't even really read the manual (I think I downloaded it but hardly referred to it).
I really liked that the keyboard was easy to use and that predictive text wasn't automatically on, I would type the first three letters and it would bring out a list of common words so I could click on the one I wanted so I never sent any embarrassing texts.
Only thing I didn't like at all about the phone is that the onboard memory is rather small, I wanted to use some apps for banking and Avon and some other interesting apps that caught my attention but found that I often had the message "storage running low" or something in those words and had to delete some photos but it still wouldn't work properly due to low memory.
I loved how easy it was to share photos to facebook, just at the press of a button. I also loved how I just had to press one button to be able to connect to wifi and it wasn't automatic so the battery wasn't always low and wanting to be charged. It was also so easy to disconnect the mobile data so that my credit wasn't used in a few days (was on prepay). Using the Bluetooth was also easy.
This would be the perfect phone if there was a way to increase the memory. It is a basic entry level smart phone. Unfortunately I have upgraded again as I can't keep deleting things to try and get mobile apps to work.
