This phone has great battery life and good sound clarity. Its phone book has ample storage. It also has programmable voice dialing that is an important safety feature, however, it does have accuracy issues so you must speak each name tag very clearly. One of the best features is the ability to program different light alerts. You can set your phone to perform different ringing light patterns just as you would assign personal ringtones. It has been very durable even after being dropped. The main failing of this phone is in its missed call alerts. Many phones will display missed call in the front panel. This on has a pathetic, fading mail message icon or text icon that blinks off and on. If you do not happen to be looking at the phone the second it blinks, you will be unaware that you have missed a call. Anyone who uses their phone for business or any important matters will tell you that this is unacceptable. This phone is missing a voice memo feature.
