Samsung Galaxy Gio GT-S5660

 

Touch screen making it quick and easy to use ; Loads of free applications, including kindle, ebay, facebook, games etc ; Screen size quite big ; Really happy with this phone

To use the internet, you have to activate it, then remember to un activate it afterwards to be able to text. Only takes a few seconds though
