The call clarity is great. People on the other end though say that when I am not talking it sounds like I have hung up, there is complete silence. From my end though there is no distortion, no humming or buzzing, it's very clear. I have had only 1 dropped call in a week and that was in the basement.
The front keypad is horrible. The buttons are spongy rubber and you have to press down with your nail right in the middle of the button, thankfully though most of my calls are to my contacts.
The phone is small and slippery, I have almost dropped it or dropped it on my lap numerous times. The back of the phone is smooth plastic.
The music sounds great from the phones speaker, much better than my girlfriends LG touchscreen. The music menus though are cumbersome and difficult to use. There are fewer options than both our last LG's for sorting and listening to music.
The camera takes poor quality pictures that blur easily and is useless in low lighting.
The menu's are not intuitive or easy to use. It's hard to find menu options you are looking for.
There is no volume button anywhere to be found, you have to go into the "profiles" section to set your ringer volumes and then switch between these "profiles." You cannot manually turn the ringer up or down otherwise.
Internet is about worthless. Trying to look up anything takes FOREVER, I mean slower than dial-up, don't know what dial-up is, ask your folks. Every page is a "loader." I even got a "memory full" error message when trying to load a google page.Read more ›
0 for resonable price.
The phone is well designed for compact portability. In regards to its general specs: The phone keypad is spongy and durable, but small and tight-knit(typos will not be few and far between, regrettably for those with grown-up fingers); the speaker is fairly clear; the digital camera is well made but not professional level in definition; and the text message keypad - while having fairly small buttons - makes up for its lack in physical size with sufficient spacing between each key to avoid repeat typos due to an overcrowded/cluttered console. Odd how the two keypads simulate and oppose each other in design. Another point of note is that the menu items are pretty much individually ordered in a standard grid formation.Read more ›
