I used to Have one of these, The GPS was Sirf Start III, which is very Powerfull, Very stable Mobile that did Everything i wanted.
this is very nice and very sutible and very usuful and very convinent for use
Have Owned this Phone now For a Year or So,Longest i've had without Changing Handsets,i've also owned an iphone, HTC, Samsung Touch screen mobiles, The O" Zest touch screen is responsive, & o2 Menu is Well Thought of, Being a windows mobile, i expected freezing/Hanging Issues, but not On this Mobile, it never Crashed on me Ever, which is Great for a Windows Mobile, All other Functions,camera, wifi, GPS work Great, The GPS Picks up Satellites very quickly. So Tomtom works great on this Device, Overall It Does everything i want it to do, But there is only one drawback, its Battery will only last about 12 hours from moderate use, So make sure you Charge it Every night,or carry a spare battery.
I cannot received multi media messages on the phone. When I go to the inbox, it tries to create a new message. So I have to use e-mail for photos etc. good job the e-mail app works well!
i want to like this Phone, but I cant, its Just not all there, Its built from Very Cheap Shiny Plastic, which attracts finger prints, Battery is Useless unless you Carry A Charger with you & find the Nearest Wall Socket or else you'll Not be able to get a full Days Use from it, Apart from that its Crap, NO NOT BUY IT, BE WARNED.
Nice Phone, Has Lots of Features, But the Battery Life only Lasts about 8 hours in Moderate Use, Maybe the First Batch of Batteries must have been Faulty, Will Buy a Replacement Battery.
Nice Piece of Equipment, Screen is Really Nice Quality, Fast & Responsive, WIFI, 3G, & a lot of other stuff,it has a Sirf 3 GPS Chip, which Picks up Satellites Really Quickly, Camera is Good, Sound is Also Good, Make sure you use Power Saving CPU Mode, with WIFI off & in 2G Mode,( when not in Use) if you Want Long battery Life, Built Quality is Average could Be better, But i Got one for £50 so You Can't Complain at that Price, Overall 8 out of 10.
My android phone broke down, so I went back to using the Zest for Internet access.
Downloaded Opera mini 5, Opera mobile 10 And Skyfire as web browsers.
Now I have a very good mobile internet machine.
Opera mini 5 gives very fast access, although pages are not always accurate and some text overlaps.
Opera mobile 10, not as fast as mini opera, but better rendering of web pages and flash lite support.
Skyfire, full flash support with videos etc, but watch the data usage is quite high. even managed to get bbc iplayer and itvplayer to work from inside skyfire!
David Heenan, 25 Aug 2009Probably the worst pda type phone in the world, battery life less than 6 hours, whilst chargin... moreTotally agree, mine is exactly as you describe. Have it plugged into car charger, using TomTom, battery goes flat, can't believe it.
Volume from speaker (Ha!!) is crap, can't hear it over slow running heater fan even, never mind engine/road noise.

If the battery is getting hot - that is the symptom! It's a warning sign hard to ignore - like a battery running out whilst on charge from a 12v power source. Junk your car charger and get a better one.

Anyone have any idea where I can get a new stylus for this phone? I lost one on a train (silly me) and am now using the spare. Any 02 shop I go into seems unable to help and suggests I call customer service, who don't seem particularly helpful either.
