Philips Mobile Phone CTE170BK E170 Black is rated
Rated 5 out of
Simple phone with outstanding battery life.
I have had this phone for about six months now. The Philips E170 is an easy-to-use bar phone with battery life that far outlasts even the renowned old school feature phones. With heavy use, which includes connecting to my car's Bluetooth daily, it took 13 days (yes, thirteen days!!!) to drain the battery. I imagine it will last a few more days with only moderate use. I also like that it charges with a standard micro USB port. Its software user interface is simple and easy to follow. In fact, simple to a fault - there is very little customization. The graphic icons are tastefully designed and big. The on screen font is also big, sharp and easy to read, which is great for my eyes. Call quality is merely acceptable, not outstanding. I found the highly touted advanced Bluetooth features to be rather gimmicky, but are present for those who want them. As for durability, I have dropped this phone several times now, it still works ok and hasn't cracked. All in all, I highly recommend this phone to those who are looking for a modern, easy to use feature phone for calling and texting from a big name that has incredible battery life.
