Size and weight, price

No Bluetooth, tiny display, no sound profiles, call quality could be improved

Battery life could be better, otherwise an excellent mobile phone

 

A reasonable size, not so small that you cannot read the display or keypad if you are more mature than the average mobile phone user. Also very straight forward and easy to use although the battery life could do with being a little longer, its otherw...
