Well after a few months using this phone i will say "Why did i go for a nokia again" i always promised myself that i would avoid nokias but when it came to having to get a new phone i ended up with this.
When the phone is good it is brilliant but when those annoying little things happen it makes you hate it like crazy. Self timer is a prime example on the camera, just try using it and try propping the phone up by itself,the awkward shape makes it worse to balance than anything.
The odd camera problem too with it freezing and also a slow to respond menu (even with the latest firmware)
I have no brand loyalty, i've used all makes of phones from Apple to Sagems and to be honest i wish i had gone for the Samsung Jet, yes i know there is less support for it but even now when i get to use one (thanks to my partner)it is the phone i wish i had.
