  • There Once Was an Ugly Duckling…

    Apr 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Vibrating alert, voice dialing, calculator, battery life, weight, an endless list
    Cons: Not pretty, no predictive dictionary

    Summary: I was the proud owner of one of these little ‘beauties’ for about eleven months, and with it being my first mobile phone I was more than pleased with the Philips Savvy. The features of this phone are clearly the main asset here. The Philips ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks, Features,
    Cons: Too Heavy, No logos or ringtones, Games, Battery life

    Summary: I was looking for a mobile about a year ago when I came across the Savvy Vogue. I saw it and I thought wow. I thought it was extremely small as well. 1 year later, it is a big huge brick that is old fashioned and outdated. It was a good phone at first, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cheap, durable, sturdy, ol' reliable, hard waring, cheap
    Cons: its a little on the boring side and not as stylish as other mobiles

    Summary: I bought this product for a very fair reason, and that was because it was dirt cheap and I was DESPERATE for a new phone. It is actually a really good phone, and in my opinion, it looks fairly alright. I am on a pay as you go contract, and what attracted ... read more

  • Just say it out loud

    Jun 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, and voice recognition
    Cons: small screen

    Summary: The Savvy weighs in at 146g with battery. Most of the phone's functions are controlled using a four-way rocker button. The phone makes heavy use of graphical icons. Only two lines of text can be viewed simultaneously, each with only 11 characters. ... read more

  • Why I hate this phone

    Mar 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Is small and light and i got free insurance for a year.
    Cons: Is ugly, expensive text messages.

    Summary: First of all it is so unfashionable. I walk around with my friends and they all have the latest nokia's which is whatn I want. I recieved this phone as a present and If i hadn't I wouldn't have bought it. They ordered it over the net so they got a year ... read more

  • Sleek and Fun!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quite small; Smart
    Cons: No support for extra ringtones etc..

    Summary: I got a Savvy DB for Christmas, completely out of the blue in fact, connected to Virgin Mobile. The phone itself is the dictionary definition of smartness. It fits into your pocket easily enough, the few ringtones available are all good, and there's an ... read more

  • Why buy a Nokia when you can buy this?

    Mar 16, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Voice Dial, Vibrator Alert, good reception, picture messaging and Price!
    Cons: Size, Unscrewable antenna small LED screen, one button keypad lock, short talk time.

    Summary: Well there are many reasons to buy a Nokia; brand, functionality, size, snake, and much more. However The Philips Savvy is not a bad phone, in fact it is a very good one. Considering that Philips is not a big player at the moment in the world of Mobile ... read more

  • Convenient and pleasant

    Mar 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great price, many useful features, good sound
    Cons: menu, looks yesterday

    Summary: Available in Savvy the set of functionality's (vibrocall, clock and date, alarm clock, calculator, voice dial - is the yet not full list!) would look pertinently not only in telephone middle-end, but also in telephones of a business-class. And price - ... read more

  • A Solid Budget Performer

    Jan 23, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Value for money, sound quality, impressive features list.
    Cons: Small screen, menu system cumbersome, looking a little dated now.

    Summary: The Savvy DB is based on the C12/C13 family, and is an ideal mobile for those who have just become converted to the "mobile faith". Coming in at around UKP£40 ($75)it represents excellent value for money. Its low price tag needn't mean a lack ... read more

    Pros: Voice activation, nice appearance, good variety of ringtones
    Cons: Very similar to other Savvy phones

    Summary: This is a cute little phone. It has many little accessories and other things that make it cool, but it's not all that. This is the Phillips Savvy Vogue, the third in the Savvy Series. First we had the Savvy. The original. It has a ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Size, ringtones, clarity
    Cons: Navigational system

    Summary: I don't actually own this phone, so maybe my opinion doesn't count as much as someone who does. Those of you who read my other review on the Ericsson will know I own one of those. However, an amazing number of my friends own this phone, and ... read more
