- I love the slide out keyboard. It is so much easier to enter contact information, calendar events, and text messages.
- I like the interface. It is much more intuitive than my old Motorola phone.
- The camera takes OK pictures.
- There's a java facebook app that runs on it. (I don't plan to use it much, too expensive in minutes, but it might come in handy on trips.)
- It takes a microSDHC card. I can copy pictures onto and off of the phone
- You can add your own ring tones (I think). The file has to be less than 300k though. (I haven't actually tried this, but the functionality appears to be there.)
- Battery life appears OK. I charged it when I got it 5 days ago, and I'm charging it again now. It got down to 1 bar on the battery. I'm optimistic that battery life will be longer from here on out since I've used it a lot more than usual entering contacts, trying all the options out, and playing game.
- MP3s sound fine to me on it. (Warning: I am not an audiophile.)
- It has limited photo editing functionality.
- The Browser button is the same as one of the navigation buttons. I haven't hit it accidentally yet though.
- It really is bigger and heavier than my old phone. The size given for it on Tracfone's website is with the slider closed. It still fits in my front pocket though.
- Camera has definite low light issues (blurry inside), but I'm not expecting much from a cell phone camera that doesn't have a flash
- It only comes with one game: a game that is like a cross between snake and bejeweled. (I don't usually play games on my cell phone, but I know some people like to.)
- No headphone jack. It does support bluetooth. (haven't tried it)
- It made the image on my CRT computer monitor wiggle occasionally when I set the phone nearby.
Here's a few pictures of it with the Motorola w376g and an ipod touch for size comparison (the 404g is the one in the middle).
Here's picture it took.
