Screen can be used as a viewfinder for self-portaits - contrast adjustability helps to optimize saturation levels in relation to lighting

Call quality is consistent and reliable - maintains signal strength through varying environments surprisingly well

Cons

Photo quality is very poor - outperformed by competitors from LG and Nokia

1 agrees

Relatively thick and bulky for a flip phone - ends up no smaller than most candybar or slider units

1 agrees

Display is poorly organized and hard to read in general - monochrome component is small and strangely off-center

1 agrees

Keypad buttons are crammed, and sit flush to the rest of the phone - very difficult to dial quickly and with accuracy
