I'm not going to lie, there is one very simple reason I went with this phone. It was free, and was the only free phone that wasn't touch screen. (I don't get on with touch screen and have no intention of ever going back!) Therefore the poor phone wasn't off to a great start with me - but that changed the moment I took it out of the box.

This is a very cute phone. It comes in very fashionable colours - Personally I went with the blue, it's a really nice shade and looks great. It's an extremely cute phone when you look at it normally, and when you slide the keyboard out it's just as attractive. This phone actually looks a lot more expensive than it actually is, and the colour choices stop you from feeling like a bit of a businessman for having a keyboard phone!

The keyboard itself is very well made. On the in-store one I tried out it looked quite tacky and I was convinced I would break it if I typed too hard or something random like that. I'm not sure why the build quality of the store one was so bad because the one I received was nothing like it - it is very sturdy and not at all bendy or anything like that, I have no worries that it's going to snap off suddenly anymore! It is also backlit, so perfect if you're trying to use it in bad lighting conditions.

Of course the major feature for this phone is it's keyboard - but how does it do? Well, it's a bit weird at first. See, when you slide the keyboard out the entire screen changes to landscape view. This is a bit bizarre at first as it's not entirely clear as to where you should be clicking in order to do anything. But once you get used to it it's very intuitive and you should be having no problems at all. It's the same with the keyboard - once you've figured out how to do everything with it, it's very easy to do. I have problems with regular slide out phones because I have spatula fingers, but I had no problem with this phone at all and when I have hit the wrong button it's always been me being stupid or distracted by something else. It seems a bit slower at first if you're like me and used to not even looking at the phone and just waiting for predictive text to do it's thing, but once your fingers have gotten used to it it's much easier to use than a regular phone.

You have a lot of choice when it comes to texting. Personally, I have the memory of a goldfish and always forget what I have written and get very confused when someone replies hours later with just "yes." Yes what?! Well this phone has solved that problem for me as you have the option to view a conversation, where you can view all of yours and their texts in the order that they were sent. If you've uploaded photos for each person you also get their pictures on the side which is quite a neat feature.

When it comes to other features the phone is pretty average. There's a lot of room for customisation with it, right down to the font you want. The camera is very average by today's standards but I think it's good for what it is. It does lack a flash or any features like that but to be honest, if I wanted to take pictures I'd use my camera - it's quality is more than good enough for your average friend shots and things like that. This phone also has a Live Square feature which runs as the background with multiple people - when you get a text the associated person lights up, which is quite a pointless feature really but still fairly amusing!

If you enjoy texting, then give this phone a try as clearly this is what it's heavily based around! I think it's excellent for the price, as similar phones to this will be costing you quite significantly more - and probably won't work anywhere near as well!
