It’s a slim and good looking and doesn’t feel plasticky. I found messaging slightly easier then on my usual phone – being able to swap swiftly from predictive text to alphabetical to numerical. There is also a clever little handwriting entry feature using the small extendable stylus, but disappointingly this led to errors in recognition and was slower than texting via the keypad. You can also text using a QWERTY keyboard if you wish. The web browser is easy to use and allows you to see full web pages and then to zoom. Battery life can be short if you find yourself playing with all the features – if using the camera on a day or night out, browsing the web and viewing images you will need your charger every couple of days. In all, the KU990 is easy to get going with but with lots to keep the most active of minds busy.
