Cheaply made phone that stands up to no wear/tear.
When I first saw this phone at the AT&T (Cingular at the time) store I was amazed by it. It seemed so logical to me to have a phone that would fit in my pocket, backpack, or wherever without being in the way of other things. Sadly, it's quality issues surpass the beautiful concept. In honesty, I should have been weary of an inexpensive phone, but at the time I was just too enthralled by it. The phone does not stand up to any amount of wear and tear whatsoever. The outer casing feels cheap and the phone squeeks when opened. Also the phone's inside (the part not showing when the phone in shut) is designed counter-intuitively, with the buttons leaving scratches on the screen. The buttons are also flat, meaning that text message touch-typists (like myself) will have a hard time adjusting to the phone. Another problem is that pressing the middle button, something that on most phones goes to the menu, goes immediately to the internet, a costly feature for those without internet packages. The interface is slow and unresponsive, meaning that I sometimes wait 10-15 seconds for the phone to do somethign after I press a button. All issues aside, the phone's camera is of amazing quality, and I enjoy the ability to quickly set the phone on vibrate by holding down the star key.
