Great...for the money

by supermoves    May 7, 2009, 12:43 PM

I posted a review of this phone as well, but I just wanted to say that for the money, I really like this phone. For the past 4 years, I have been with t-mobile and bought 2 or 3 phones per year. On average, I pay about $350 for my phones.

When I switched to sprint, which I couldnt avoid, their SERO plan saves me like $1k a year..literally, I was really concerned that I would have to stick with a crappy selection of phones. After a little research (mainly on this site) I decided to go with the S30. I have to say, for being less than 1/3 of what I normally pay for my phones, it has only slightly less functionality. My biggest complaints about this phone are the poor camera quality (so poor it might as well not even exist) and the shot battery life. The battery lasted me about 3 days with normal talking, but if you even LOOK at the navigation key, you'll be recharging it in a single night.

If you could take the interface and touch screen and put it together with the mobile cyber-shot that SonyEricsson uses, you'd have one of the best devices of 2009. The touch screen, in my opinion, is at least as good as the iphone, even if the software isnt quite there yet.

Overall, for $100, you will be hardpressed to find a better phone.
