Its a good basic phone but you should not expect more than what you paid for.
It has all the basic features you need and are used to from non android phones. In my case I don't need too much. The most important features to me are text and calling, alarm, calculator, contacts and calendar. It does have a camera which compared with what you can get in a phone nowadays is abysmal BUT as I said you get what you paid for and its alright for snap shots.
It functions well. I haven't had any problems writing, sending or receiving texts and mms. The sound and signal is good when making calls.
The qwerty keyboard is definitely made for small fingers. It took me some time to get used to it because the keys are small and close together (Ive had a LG similar to this one in looks and the keys were much easier to use) so its easy to accidentally press keys you didn't mean to press which can be annoying but its not a deal breaker just a matter of getting used to it. I don't have as many problems with it now.
The display quality could be better. Sometimes the harsh contrast makes it hard to look at especially if you access your facebook page through the browser (the blue text on blue background is hard to read). But again not a deal breaker just somewhat annoying in specific instances.
Pros: QWERTY!!!, cheap, service through straight talk works great, camera for snap shots, long stand by time
Cons: small keys, could have better display
All in all I would say if you are looking for an affordable, budget, basic function phone which has a qwerty keyboard this is a good phone choice for you
if you are easily bothered by a sometimes glary display or don't have small fingers I would probably stay away from it.
You get what you pay for and for me this is a perfect in between solution while I'm on a low budget. I will most likely switch back to an android phone once I can afford it again but for now I'm just happy I don't have to deal with T9 and I can use the phone with the straight talk $30 dollar plan which helps with my budget as well.
PS: I do know there are other qwerty type basic phones out there. I dont know how this phone compares to others like it so I graded it specifically on how this one met my expectations.
