  1. Dulwadul Says:

    Good design, I like it thin. Good case material. Size is quite big..cannot put in your pocket… I myself bought carrying case for my Z170.

    3G, but haven’t try it.

    Good camera for 1,3 Mpix class.

    No equalizer for music player, but the sound pretty much good using earphone.

    Soft keypad…quite comfortable for sms freaks.

    Bright view…I like it.

    when you receive call…it only shows caller ID/name…doesn’t show specific number (if the caller have more than 1 number in your phonebook). 3 days max batterylife.

    SMS report like old NOKIA..sending report message to your inbox, and also sending message to your inbox when you receive sms broadcast from operator (for example location name of where you are)..I HATE IT.

    Overall….it won’t make you embarrassed using this phone, because it looks. And fair enough for its price.
