Pros: One of the things that I like about the Rumour 2 is its text display. When you text somebody, your whole conversation is listed when you select their name. It has a very large storing capacity and the inbox doesn’t have to be deleted for days. I also find that the sounds quality of the Rumour 2 for phone calls is quite good. I have never had troubles with not being able to hear the person I am speaking to or them having trouble hearing me. The size of the Rumour 2 is another benefit. Unlike some of the newer smart phones, the Rumour 2 is more compact and can be stored more easily. It is a slide phone with a full keyboard. The keyboard has every character of the alphabet as well as the numbers 1-9 on its own individual button. This makes for fast, easy typing. The phone is also quite responsive. Switching between menu screens and pages is always done in a fraction of a second. I find it never lags out and is reliable. The camera is very clear and even does a good job of capturing motion. For a phone, it is one of the better cameras that I have seen.
Cons: One of the few bad things about the phone is how I don’t know how to send a duplicate text message. If I don’t think the recipient received it, I must just send a new message altogether. Another undesirable trait is that it is hard to use the internet on. I don’t have a plan with internet but the few times I have used it, it has been tricky to navigate and hard to use. If you are looking for a phone that can use the internet, this isn’t the phone for you.
All in all, the Rumours benefits outweigh its flaws. It is a good phone to get if it is your first phone. It works well for teenagers as the texting is very easy and user-friendly. I give the phone an 8/10 because it is of good value. It is a cheaper phone and I assure you it is worth it. Thanks for reading!
