Recently my old Siemens C60 has died, so I had to buy new cell phone. Since I'm not phone geek at all, I've decided to buy the simplest (just to call and write SMS) of Philips Xenium series (exceptional battery lifetime). So, here it is, my Philips Xenium E100.
Now I'm writing review for those who thinks if one should be one too. Probably not. Battery lives long enough indeed, phone looks and feels to palm all right, but everything else is terrible.
you lag too: for example, in order to delete last character in already selected contact's name, one should press nine (9) buttons. And that's common
one can bind only fast dialing on digit bittons
one cannot bind anything but FM-radio on "Back" button
no "only first letter uppercase" mode for cyrillic
latin is unavailable without changing mode
no Extended Latin
when editing text, one cannot jump back and forth by whole words (by long pressing), only by symbol
message drafts are saved without recipient's number
if one cancels sending message, he should be ready to loose all the typed text and everything
The list is to be continued. I'd reckon, most of these problems are common for other Xeniums (Xenia?) too.
