RATING

The "1-Minute" Review

An attractive, eye-catching fashion phone that emphasizes style and personalization over advanced features. Taking a fresh approach to the flip design, the z200's Japanese-Swedish design team gave their creation soft lines, a clock-shaped external display located off-center, and a folding strap like a miniature handle.

The unit ships with two switchable body covers, and more colors and patterns are available as after-market accessories. Similarly, personalized themes are supported exceptionally well: font, colors, and backgrounds are easily changed, and third-party software allows you to create your own themes and edit pictures. On the down side, some features like screen quality, MMS, Java games and digicam have been sacrificed, although audio quality remains high.

really a huge crap

really this is the worst junk ive ever seen.display is worse.very short battery life,poor display lifetime,useless back display type.

good, simple phone

what''s with all the bad reviews? i got this phone about a year ago and am pretty pleaseed. Sure, it doesn''t have all a camera, mp3 player or any of that other stuff - it''s a basic, simple phone. I get about 3 days of standby time (if no calls) and 1 day if i have an hour or so of calls. I admit, i''...More

I get about 3 days of standby time (if no calls) and 1 day if i have an hour or so of calls. I admit, i''m looking for a new phone with better web browsing functions but you could do worse than getting one of these (think Samsung). Less
needs sum work on display and can u guys add a camera 2 dis piece its gona b really hypd

WORST DESIGN EVER!!!

I cannot believe that the "cool" and "hip" design is the selling point for this piece of crap. Whats with that stupid bulky clip thing?

I cannot believe that the "cool" and "hip" design is the selling point for this piece of crap. Whats with that stupid bulky clip thing? This is undoubtedly the ugliest phone I have ever seen and thats including the crap people were using in the 80''s. (Don''t ask me why I own one, I didn''t buy it). It takes a week to write a text message on those flimbsy buttons and the menus are designed very unintuitively. Standby time is nowhere near 200hours (thats absolute BS). Yeah, I should also mention that it locks up more than those crappy Macs they used to make with the CPU inside the monitor. Who came up with that idea? Probably the same guy who designed this phone... terrible... absolutely terrible... I will be burning mine and dancing naked around the remains as soon as I get a new phone. Less

could be better..

This phone isn''t too bad. It could be better. It needs a camera, and more faceplates.

This phone sucks!

I have had this awful phone for about a year now and it just keeps on gettng worse, not better!!!! It has horriable reception, it hangs up when i finally do get enough reception to talk to someone! The only good thing is the cool look and colour display. Otherwise it sucks. Fido sucks to.

Very Good

I got this phone last summer, and I have to say it is very efficient. Now, it is out of date, but I am someone who is into gadgets.

I got this phone last summer, and I have to say it is very efficient. Now, it is out of date, but I am someone who is into gadgets. Very good phone, but yes I know if you want a camera go buy a camera, but who actually acrries a digital camera with them everywhere ? Ya didn''t think so, so to have one on a phone in convinient if you are going to be out and forget a camera at least you can capture the moment. This phone is excellent to get ringtones and wallpapers with, by using the built in web browser. Very clear display, but some people say it sucks, well all you have to do is change the diplay settings. I like the outside clock, very cool, and when someone calls me people look and they usually comment saying it is cool how it scrolls. Now all phones have bad things about them and this phone''s bad features are : Not too much storage, no multiple contact information, no camera. Other than that if yu are looking for a phone that is very easy to use, and you don''t care what people think about your phone, and just want a phone for a phone, this is definately the phone for you !! :D Less
