Summing up my blackberry experience in one word. AMAZING.

Look

Small screen and full querty keyboard, i thought this phone wouldnt live up to the hype. I thought that the screen would be too small to to anything decent on and id end up pressing more than 1 key at a time, boy was i wrong. It also features the Blackberry logo at the top, above which is a small graille and next to which is an LED light which lights up when a new message is recieved. There is some space below the querty keyboard so that it doesnt look to cramped and directly above the querty keyboard, just below the screen, are the usual navigation and call buttons, with a scroll in the middle. The back has a flash "square", a camera and the rest is a leather cover with a silver blackberry logo on it. It also has two buttons located on the top of the blackberry, invisible at distance, and these put the blackberry into standby mode and alos lock/unlock it/

Navigation

Very simple to navigate. Basically the scroll, or trackpad, acts like a miniture version of a laptop mouse, so moving ur finger moves the arrow, or the section which is highlighted. Pressing this is in is an "accept" or "enter" button. Pressing the Blackberry button opens the full menu, whilst pressing shift and the blackberry button consecutively produces a "quick" menu, a menu which pops up with shortcuts. Arrow button makes the screen go back to the previous interface and pressing the disconnect button makes you go back to the background. As i have stated, it is very easy to navigate, not taking much getting used to. The trackpad is a very neat feature and helps a lot when using the internet. The quick menu is also very useful if it is customised to make it full of the shortcuts you most use, e.g. facebook, camera etc...

Camera

3.2mp camera with 2x zoom. Quite clear compared to most phone cameras and flash is also quite bright.

Battery life

Very good battery life, lasts about 20 hours of internet browing, and longer talking time. I usually charge it every 4 days, a lot better than the LG cookie i had before which required charging everyday!

Screen

Even though a small screen usually puts me off, this screen is very good, I hardly notice the difference in size between it and my old LG cookie, and doesnt affect me when browsing or playing games.

Qwerty keyboard

Even though the keys look small, i hardly ever press more than one at once. And i do have pudgy fingers. Again, very easy to use and pressing shift and a key lets you do second function, quite useful when using the web. Only problems are that the sym button (symbols) is too small to be used for frequent use and the enter and backspace buttons are too close together, not a good thing for people who have credit and SMS a lot.

Durability

Very fragile. Not as much as the touch-screen phones out there, but enough to become a nuisance. I personally have a Tote case for mine, and have had no problems watseover.

Features

Word, Excel, Powerpoint. Nice calender with tons of space for appointments, and the ability to set a different alarm every day for different reasons; in advance. Web browser with fast connectivity, depending on your price plan and network. Wi-fi and settings tabs. Blackberry messenger. Mp3 player (obviously). Decent built-in games. Ive heard you can get sat-nav onto it but i have no experience with that. BUT, it doesnt have a radio! The only black mark on what was a very good line-up.

Overall

A very good phone, would definately recommend it to anyone and everyone. I put that its very poor in reception quality as i keep losing connection, be that because of my surroundings or my network, it is VERY annoying.
