Applications that are built-in include a calendar that shows you the date but does not manage any appointments; five alarms; world clock and memo writer. There is also a voice recorder, calculator, stopwatch and a couple of games.
Bluetooth is also included, and you can use the phone in mass storage mode for getting data such as music files to and from your PC. It comes with a USB cable for this job. It also, incidentally, comes with a cleaning cloth, which could prove handy as the phone does seem to attract greasy fingermarks both front and back.
There is 128MB of integrated memory, and a microSD card slot under the battery. The phone comes with a 1GB card.
The Liscio is tri-band GSM. Battery life proved quite good. Asking the phone to play music non- stop from a microSD card resulted in 6 hours 47 minutes of playback.
This mobile has a distinctive and not unattractive design, and I do like its small neat size. The number pad is well thought out and considering what little space it has to live in I found it ergonomic to work with.
The necessarily squeezed screen was annoying at times, but the truncated feature set is likely to be more annoying. Especially considering the price of this handset. Look back through my recent reviews, and you’ll find other handsets which cost a lot less and offer comparable features.
