So I was given a brand new phone, box still sealed, everything untouched! Shouldn’t matter, true, but for some reason it did.
I felt like I just got a unexpected gift trough the post and opening the box was going to reveal a little surprise…and it did!
Running the risk of sounding a bit strange (moi?) I’ve nicknamed my little gift as Speedy Gonzalez!! Why? Well it’s kind of small, doesn’t look like anything amazing looks wise but from the moment it powers up, you know that first impressions can be deceiving! It is fast! Very fast!
I’ve proceeded then to investigate how much it costs… Really? That’s it? Talk about a good deal! I’m sure this needs to be investigated further…
Let’s be mean…1…2…3…4……10! That should do it! Ten apps opened all at the same time and … it’s behaving like nothing is happening. And believe me I’ve tried to crash it! Messed with all the apps, most of them accessing the internet, continuously working, and nothing! Go on Speedy!
Now the menus. Typical android software…running Kit Kat 4.4.4….All the basic stuff like contact ,messages, camera, clock, (it’s got radio! I Though no mobiles had that anymore!)…etc.. are the first things you see when you first go on to the menus. Then you have all the most used Apps ( chrome, Gmail, you tube, Pinterest, amazon, Evernote, ebay,etc…) but no Facebook? No Twitter? Why? Fair enough you can download them but….a bit strange I would say…
You also have other apps like play music, play movies and TV, google+, play store, etc… For some reason every time I look at it or even read what I’ve just typed I feel I just want to go "all hail google"…On that note, there are 5 pre-installed O2 apps. My o2, priority moments, O2 app space, O2 tracks and Tu Go.
I did enjoy the camera, against my expectations. Took a few pictures, wasn’t particularly careful about holding the phone still but the camera performed really well, it doesn’t feel like just 5 MP. Impressed! As for the battery it could be a bit better … I have serious doubts about it lasting a full day if you are a heavy user… And to end on a more positive note I have to say that I love … the cover! If it didn’t scratch the screen I would have the phone facing down all the time just so that people could see how stylish it is!
So, not quite perfect but If you are on a limited budget or you are not into the all apps/internet thing, this may just be the phone for you.
It does what the other smartphones do, looks stylish and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg!
