At A Glance

With an innovative design and great features, the Ocean would be a favorite if it had better call quality.

Inexpensive phone has a high-quality camera, but speed and design are compromised.

An excellent smartphone with plenty of features for work and play.

Offsetting the compact, convenient design are a cramped keyboard and smaller screen (in comparison with the Sidekick LX).
