I got this as a standby on O2 but have so far continued to use it because I like it! My battery is fine, lasts a couple of days..Although it is a phone designed for ease of use seemingly for the elderly, it is no bad thing that the text on the screen is large and the sound is loud and crisp.  It is odd that the internet is not so easy to navigate, I expect not too many people will use it but downloading mp3's is fast. Having said that, although there is  memory card expansion there is no mp3 player on the phone... You can navigate the phone through the menu system and get it to play mp3's and it has a good sound but it is a shame that there is no featured mp3 player as you have to start every mp3 manually.   There seems not much other use for memory card expansion unless for your photo collection.. The camera is surprisingly good and gives clear bright pictures at 2 megapixel, so more than the usual basic phone camera.  The radio is clear and you can have it on speaker but you do need to make sure that the speaker is off if you are in a public place and you can't change that except via the menu system and so the radio needs to be coming out of the speakers during that time, so you may disturb other people while you do this, but plenty of people disturb others by having the headphones turned up loud anyway so it is not a serious concern.  The phone has a nice feel to it and pleasant to use. Phone calls are clear and crisp. I haven't investigated the emergency calling functions on the phone as I don't need them, but there is a button on the back which seems all to easy to press by mistake.. I guess it is better to be safe than sorry. Personally, I would buy this phone for an elderly relative, my mum is 79 but she loves her Samsung Galaxy too much, so I wouldn't suggest for her though! Less

Battery life? More like battery death.

Battery died after 12 hrs even after no use at all, this is absolutely useless bought another just incase the battery was faulty but not, still 12 hours and dead. So useless it definitely is.
