2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Decent build - the front and back look as though they should be quite scratch resistant - the matte-finish is also nicely grippy
  • Attractive design
  • Nice, compact dimensions - weighs just 79g including the battery
  • The phone is also pre-populated with a range of stock apps, and has a store
  • The overall performance is fine (with the exception of that teeth-grindingly slow browsing - as a result of the phone supporting neither anything other than 2G networks, nor supporting WiFi)
  • Extraordinary battery life - the 1200mAh battery, which is charged via Micro-USB, is rated as good for up to 22 hours of talk, 31 days on standby, 51 hours of MP3 playback and 39 hours of radio - basically you can go for days on end without even thinking about recharging
  • The battery is also swappable
  • Overall, although the phone is severely limited in an age of smartphones - it won't allow you to access Whatsapp for instance - it could still lure those who want a simple but robust feature phone with exceptional battery life, perhaps as a backup handset, to their smartphone
  • FM radio, Bluetooth work as expected

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Navigation buttons are not the most comfortable
  • The tiny screen of course isn't anything to write home about - it measures 2.4 inches across the diagonal and has a QVGA resolution of just 240 by 320 pixels - obviously the phone is not meant for anything more than basic calling/texting
  • No WiFi, No GPS, No 3G, No 4G - web browsing is as expected, excruciatingly slow
  • Poor camera - shoots at 2 megapixels and isn't much use for anything beyond basic on-handset images
  • Audio quality via both headphones, and speaker is average
