Owned Philips v800, now buying this one. Reliable pushable buttons are a must have when you cannot use touchscreen. Specs are good, but I'd prefer less but faster CPU cores. Anyway, I hope this device will have long standby time. One thing would be cool to have - an IR port so the phone could also be used as a TV remote =)
I really hope this will be available in our country. This phone is like the Samsung flip phone , Samsung I9230 Galaxy Golden . design is almost the same but the specs are diff..
Oh, you are one those from that generation that does not know how to use T9 dictionary. Tsk Tsk!!

thenerd, 30 Mar 2016Seems like you're not old enough to appreciate this form factorI am 24 so no ... I had several devices with this form and I liked some of them , but this one is pointless , why should I flip the device just to type a phone number ? a qwerty keyboard is needed and I would buy it if it were qwerty
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2016Indeed, you know more about design than I do. (considering that I have more than 8 years of ex... moreno wonder these past 8 years there have not been any innovative designs on phones.
Gauron, 29 Mar 2016You ignoramus. Design is a matter of choice and preference, there is no best aesthetic design... moreIndeed, you know more about design than I do. (considering that I have more than 8 years of experience in this field)
Also, regarding your "iSheep" assumption - I don't even have an iPhone. Never bought anything Apple in fact. But I objectively acknowledge that their design language is good. Also, Windows phone UI design language is good and it's a bit ahead of its time. (but people are starting to catch up; and Android is starting to copy it)
Design can always be split into two categories: good aesthetic design and bad aesthetic design. And it's not a matter of who views it.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2016flip phone is so yesterday... mybe they should considered game button phone such as sony did, ... moreThey are still very popular in the Far East, which I imagine is where this will sell most. I am no fan on this phone, I don't like the faux leather back (metal would look better), but it will sell well in it's target market.
those keyboard reminds me of replying text message with eyes closed lol
flip phone is so yesterday... mybe they should considered game button phone such as sony did, xperia play
"The faux leather back also gives away its premium positioning."
It doesn't. On contrary, it's inferior to even high-mid rangers, such as Galaxy A-series with metal-and-glass builds. Samsung really should stop thinking people like their plastic
This company does total nut jobs. . .brings slimest phone, no one cars. . .brings marathon battery phone, no one buys. . brings megapixel selfie camera, no one heard. . .and they never heard of snapdragon or sony sensors
