Samsung E420


I really like this phone, its neat and sturdy, and other people have admired it.Very good value for money, one of the best phones had.

Bad record keeping, I like to have details of how long calls last. incomming and outgoing,and it only stores the last 20 calls!! More choice of ring tones and ability to pick up photos sent by other people.

Its Camera is relatively good, and for what I paid I am very pleased, for a basic phone

It is quite slow, and the INternet is not so good either takes ages to load up

Samsung E420


this phone is small and compact and quite pleasing to look at. The text is easy to read and the phone is easy to use. Generally this is a basic phone but as it was inexpensive (used) it is OK for my use. Battery life so far is good and will last about...

People have told me that often parts of the text Ive sent has been missing, especially if it goes over 1 page. Also although I have it set at 'message delivered' I am told that is not always the case.

Samsung E420


This phone is very easy to use and I get a lot of compliments on how nice it looks. It was advertised as a reconditioned model - but arrived in perfect condition. I've never had a flip phone before - they always seemed a little delicate - but this...

It's a basic model - but you get what you pay for. No great ring tones and the picture quality is poor, but if you just want good value, reliable phone, this model is great
