I’ve had experience using different brands of phones (usually unlocked phones) , having owned phones from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG and, now, Samsung. I can say that these brands have varying degrees of user-friendliness. Some take a bit of getting used to, such as when I shifted for the first time from Nokia to Sony Ericsson. It took me minutes to complete a text on the SE, but I soon got the hang of it.
