I had been using this phone for some time now. must say the features are great and the cam is just great when it comes to taking photos of yourself.. and the talk time is somewhere around 4 hours and the battery lasts around 1 and a half days. Mind you all of this is without 3G. But the good ends there. The thing I hate the most is the firmware simply dreadful.. The apps you open do not close by themselves or they do not prompt you weather to minimize or close, so they are just running all the time and slows the phone down quite alot.. I can live with it by manually closing the opened apps but I dont think anyone who is not so in to tech would know how to do that so if you are like that DO NOT BUY this phone.. But if you can live with that then its a brilliant phone. Just in case.. DO NOT DROP it.. I droped it once (from like 1 ft) and the signals just went and had to restart the phone twice to get signal.. So I have no intention of dropping it again.. Internet is fast enough.. usable.. sorry I did not use the videocall so cant say anything about the quality. But the keypad is just THE BEST BEST BEST... I love texting on this and it brings back memories of the great 1100.. All and all its a really good phones with some hickups in the firmware.. but if they correct it, this can be a pretty good phone.. but if ur looking for a day to day usable devise, then I would recomend you take the Sony Ericsson Elm (My primary phone) its a bit cheaper, and even has wi-fi but do not have a front cam (Has video call) and much easier to use.. but if ur looking for a stilish good looking phone and ur in to tech too, then C5 is a good choice..
