Look and feel
Although svelte, we were surprised as to how solid and sturdy it feels. So it should, as it's crafted from anodized aluminium.
Ease of use
The keys are a little fiddly to press because they're rather small but the user interface is simple to use.
Features are solid for a mid-range phone, with 3G, a reasonable two megapixel camera, good music player, stereo Bluetooth and 1GB of internal memory.
The camera is capable but not awe inspiring, but the music player is excellent.
We found the battery life very acceptable for a mid-range phone.
