Style over Substance

 

Looks nice but we had to return it due to terrible sound quality. We tried it in various rooms but it didn't improve...we didn't know if it was where we were putting it or if it was faulty as the sound was so bad!

Nice phone

 

Bought this as a present for my mum, really nice stylish design and glossy finish, the handset is a little bit too lightweight I would say, and i think it is a little slow when pressing the buttons to view last call or looking through the menu options,...
