The Cons: No. 2

Font size when sending SMS can’t be adjusted without changing the message into a more expensive MMS.

This is something that keeps cropping up in forums as a criticism of the 770SH but I'm not sure it's a very significant minus point. In my opinion, the normal font size is perfectly adequate for people with average eyesight.

However, as with the lack of active flip for people with a hand disabilty, the font size issue is a negative point for any users with a sight disability. The difference is though, the handset allows you to easily rectify the problem: you simply increase the font size. The drawback here is that you increase the price of the text. Vodaphone charges 12 pence for text messages and 36 pence for multi-media messages.

To try and provide some evidence regarding the font size I've added the picture on the right. Click on the picture to see a larger version. I must warn you though, unfortunately the quality of picture doesn't really do the phone justice. Hopefully what it does do is illustrate normal font size and the ample space on the screen.

If anyone has a solution to the text size problem that doesn't involve turning the message into a SMS, please do let me know.

The screen is perfect. I was using NOKIA 6680, and the resolution is 176*208. It's absolutely a joke compare with sharp.
