Great for My Mam


"My mam is unable to use touchscreen. It has a few more functions than her last phone but with time I'm sure she'll master these too."

Decent feature phone


"Battery life isn't quite as good as I expected, but it's still better than most and is good for my elderly mother."

Consumer review (

Does what it says on the tin


"I love this wee phone. It makes calls, it's got voicemail, it texts. If I'm desperate, it's got internet. I use the calculator, converter, calendar and other such functions. I bought it to get out of the grip of the smartphone. We're all obsessed...

Basic; Easy to use; Battery lasts ages; Nice colour; Small - fits in pockets!; Light - not a brick; Probably can't be hacked

Calendar limited; Internet basic but that's why you buy this!; Can't delete or organise apps

Nice phone but not suitable


"Purchased for an elderly relative/user, such a shame the phone quality and screen size was ideal but keypad let it down, back light and number/letters not easily visible for text usage? Returned as unsuitable unfortunatley. "
