Pros - The only good thing about this phone is automatic call recording without beep
Cons - There are too many other negatives - The screen is always lighted during the call even if you're using headphones which not only drains the battery but also attracts lot of insects and mosquitoes if you're on call in a dark place. I've contacted the customer care and they said that the screen light will be on till the call ends. There is no option to turn the screen off during call. Aboslutely rediculous. There is no time stamp for sent messages. You cannot know on what day and at what time you've sent a particular message. Aboslutely rediculous. The 3.5 mm jack provided for hands-free headset does not work if I plugin the nokia and handsfree headset. But I've tested that Nokia and Samsung headsets are compatible interchangeably.
