The phone has a thick, sort of touch appeal that makes it look stable and high- quality as it has rounded edges and a sleek keypad that is perfect for texters and people who do a lot of work on their phone. Connecting with the T-Mobile network, the phone features Wi-Fi, and a 5 mega pixel camera with auto-focus and Geo-tagging, perfect for the aspiring photographer or for someone who would like to capture important and everyday moments.
The slider phone works with ease and a secure feeling, making it feel like a solid device. If you want a phone that feels like it is put together and will be reliable and sturdy even if it falls on the ground a million times or accidentally takes a spill into the toilet, this is the phone for you. It has a reliable wholeness about it that makes it look sturdy enough to stand the test of time and a million potential catastrophes.
The keypad itself is fairly good, as it is spaced out and has a big enter key to avoid confusion. Many phones place the enter key at the same size as all the others, make it hard and often disastrous to browse the Internet or to send a message that does not have strange characters tagged at the end. Though the keypad is good, the only problem with it is that the spacebar and various other control keys are set on a level slightly below the rest of the keys and it might mean that you will press alphabet or number characters when you are actually reaching for the spacebar, simply because of its position on the phone. Also, unlike the Enter key, the spacebar is not distinguished from any of the other keys, making it harder to spot and making the enter texting process a bit more difficult.
The phone includes headphone jacks as well as a volume rocker control, a micro-USB port, and a mute switch that makes it easy and efficient to silence your phone whenever you need to. You don’t need to select a menu to do it, but rather press that button. However, the vibrator is as loud as war machinery and might not work as an appropriate signal if you need to silence your phone, leaving you with just the option of keeping your phone silent or off because the vibration would disturb just as much as a traditional ringer.
The phone is also equipped with various alert lighting that notifies you whenever you receive an email, a text, a missed call, a voicemail, or any other kind of update. More than likely, you will be receiving these alerts every few seconds as it notifies you about every single thing occurring on your phone. This can be a good thing as you will never miss a beat of your high pulsating life, but at the same time can be frustrating for people around you or even for you if you do not prefer distractions.
Finally, for the multi-tasker, this phone is perfect. Equipped with Facebook, Google, Twitter, Picasa, Photobucket, and Yahoo Mail, plus email and Exchange ActiveSync.
