I was first intrigued by this phone's twist function. As I found out later by fiddling with it, one twist turns is from phone mode into camera mode and another makes it go into music player mode. The phone can support a microSD card of up to 2GB which makes it into an excellent phone and music player all in one. The camera takes pictures of 2 megapixels which results in really really clear pictures that can be further zoomed in. So now its a great phone, music player and digital camera in one. The media playing software is extremely easy to use and there is a step by step demo application in case the user is still confused. Data can be transferred via USB cable to a PC. The fact that this is a symbian phone enables the user to further expand the phone's capability via third party software. I encountered two problems with this phone. First, the twisting. It was so hard to twist the phone until I was afraid I might break it with the force I applied to twist it. Second the video recording. The video seems a little blur-ish and stops too frequently. If this is a manufacturing defect, then this problem should be rectified. Overall its a good phone that I would buy only if the price is decreased to a more affordable figure.
