The first thing that i thought when I unboxed this phone i thought - wow i've got to be delicate with this - it just felt like it could be broken very easily - this thought grew stronger when i took the back off in order to insert the battery and pulled the lid down to reveal the keypad.

But this was just a first thought - after having this phone for months - i now realise it is quite sturdy and reliable - it is very very light. The phone is very small and it is very hard to press the keys - but you adjust to it after a while.

There is a 1.3 megapixel camera on this phone - it is OK - this camera resolution is very dated - and you can tell that this was not a priority in the final build of the phone. It is not a bad camera - but i would not rely on it for holiday photos or anything important - its more for taking a picture to send to a friend or something.

The walkman feature on the phone is amazing - it can be activated by closing the lid - the sound is crystal clear and is surprisingly loud. There is a memory card included with the phone (a 512mb one) this can fit plenty of songs and photos but you will most likely want to upgrade - as you can use this for a fully fledged mp3 player. you can also listen to the radio - with the add on which acts as an antenna.

The phone comes with a software CD so you can connect your phone to the computer using bluetooth and USB. you can transfer photos and music from your phone to computer and vice versa. The transfers are quite slow really - but not slow enough that you become annoyed.

The phone has a nice layout - the menu is easy to access and everything is set out well - everything you need you can find it easily e.g entertainment - camera and so on. The loudspeaker is good - phone conversations are clear and there is a lot of room to store numbers in the phonebook.

The trackID feature is good - you can basically record a song and send it over the interent and in seconds you will receive the name of the song and the artist (you have to pay though - not sure how much though). Connecting to the internet is easy - my favourite feature is the ability to subscribe to RSS feeds - whenever the site or blog is updated you are informed. If you want to use the internet you should install opera mini (i took this advice from CNET - and it is good advice).

Overall the phone is great - texting is easy - and everything you need is easy to find and easy to use - it is light - its got a good battery life. there are also some games - there not very good though - you have to pay for the good ones though - there not cheap and in my opinion not worth it.
