If you like your phones light and fluffy, the Lily E420 could be the phone for you.

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

Samsung E420


Easy to use - very basic, no frills which is what I wanted

Doesn't always take you to your saved numbers, you sometimes have to press the button several times before you get what you want

Samsung E420


It's a simple phone. The softwere is a bit old fashion campare to those recent ones. So if you're not a gadget person and use mobile phone as just telephone, it would suit you. The design is quite elegant. Everyone around me who saw this phone loved...

You cannot syncronise the phone with your computer. So you cannot transfer music or photos from your camputer to phone and vise versa. I think it was designed for basic but it was a bit disappoiniting

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
