Researched the M55 before I bought it so knew that reception was what I wanted. And in that regard it's great. Holds a signal well, and speakers and mics are very clear. Styling I like, and battery life is great. The screen clarity is average I'd say, but acceptable. The menu system is still not great. Very chunky to try and get around in. The keys are sometimes tricky as they're small and the software is slow in catching up to your inputs. Its got a flaw in the ring tone system though. When I bought it it had some of those funny Asian ring tones, which I don't like so I deleted them. Trouble is that they're still in there somewhere as they sometiems show up if I try to assign specific ring tones to a group or friend. So on average I'd recommend it but it does have some niggly little things. Not enough to turn me off the phone though.
