Review by nicos on 18 Mar 08

I've spent 3 months with this waif of a 3G phone from Orange. First impressions were good, it's basically a fat credit card which will happily sit in your shirt pocket without you even knowing it's there.

The front of the phone has a brushed metal effect, to the rear it has a strange rubbery material which feels like an eraser! The keypad has buttons the size of rice grains, not particularly ergonomic but you soon get used to them.

The good...

  • Slim, lightweight, battery life, texting, sound quality/headphones, 1gig memory card.
  • When connecting to a PC via the supplied USB cable you have the option of using it as a mass storage device (means you can drag and drop photos/mp3's to it).
  • The average...

  • Camera
  • The not so good...

  • No 3.5mm headphone socket on the phone itself, you have to use the supplied cable/adapter. For a Walkman phone you'd think this would be the first thing on the list, but I guess not.
  • It only has one non-demo game called Quadra Pop, not great!
  • Doesn't support SD memory cards.
  • You can't use your PC's internet connection to browse the internet using the phone (when it's connected via USB).
  • Overall this is a good little phone and after 3 months it hasn't let me down yet.
