The Good:

  3. Stand-by Time: 528 hours of stand-by time. It is excellent! (score: 20/20)
  4. Phone Book: It can store a variable number of phone book entries. This is generally the case of phones with a dynamic memory and, it normally allows for a lot of phone numbers to be stored. (score: 20/20)
  5. Memory Expansion Slot: It features a memory expansion slot MicroSD, a convenient way to store more pictures and music or transfer them from and to your laptop computer. (score: 10/10)

  9. Wireless Data System: Bluetooth-enabled, which is an interesting plus. Bluetooth is not really necessary but may be handy if you want to use a wireless headset or transfer data to or from your (Bluetooth-enabled) laptop, for instance. (score: 7/7)

The Not-So-Good:

  1. Weight: 4.7 ounces of weight is somewhat above average. You could find that phone a bit bulky. (score: 4/20)
