I had this phone since 2005 and it has been great. The original battery was ok; it would last a day with mild usage (no heavy calling and no wifi, but I'm happy with that). The keypad is great for text entry, note taking, and works very well with dictionaries. The P50 also works happily with multilingual customizations (Japanese).

I have had almost no stability issues since firmware version 1.12. I get hard reset problems, maybe 3 times last year, but I backup on sync everyday and store all crucial data on the memory card.

Since it is already 3 years old, my P50 is getting worn out and the keys are less sensitive. Nevertheless, for me it is still a great device.

For all you battery whiners, you have two choices. One, charge daily, watch your phone usage, and adjust your power settings (my brightness is always lowest, and use automatic power). Two, buy an extended battery. I bought one because the old one doesn't hold much anymore. Now it lasts for at least two days.

Anyway, if you know how to customize the device it can serve you well. My only gripe with the P50 is that it has no Macro camera function. That's it.
