Very good for the price

I bought it 8 months ago and it's never missed a beat. I charge it overnight whenever the battery indicator shows 3 lines instead of 4 - which is about once a week. Admittedly I don't use it for surfing the net and don't make calls every minute of the day, but for my modest requirements this phone is excellent value.

I hate this phone because it is faulty.

The screen flashes and blurs excessivley, brand new straight out of the box. Absolute rubbish phone.
