"Samsung phones are the best"

I have now had the samsung BLADE for 5 months and unlike other phones i have had in the past its a brilliant phone.

Its touch screen is brilliant and has never faulted. I like this because it has a little vibrates when you touch it so you know for sure that you have actually pushed the right button. I have heard a few people say that they get a little annoyed with this so it can be turned off which is a good idea. There is a protective sheild over the screen which can be changed when required.

It does everything that it says on the Packaging. I like the fact that its so easy to use there are no hard applications to use or anything like that.

Messages are really easy to write on it. I have found messages in the past hard to write on touch screen phones. When i first got it i found it hard to adjust to the space bar being at the side but that was soon easy enough.

Its a good looking phone and i have had no major faults with it. It has full internet access and again this is very eary to use.
It has its own google maps Part on it and it cleverly finds where you are just like a sat nav would.

When ringing or getting a text message or anything like that its nice and loud so there is no missing calls or anything. I have found some mobile phones in the past very quiet :-(

I have had one minor issuse with it and this is that when my meassage boxes are nearly full it wont send another messagem When i finally realised what the problem was its not an issue i just know to delete the messages (it did however take a while to find this out and nobody could help with this either)

I would advise this phone to anybody that is looking to buy a new phone. There price has dropped quite alot since they have come out.
