  • Excerpt: To be honest, i would not recommend this phone to anyone, it's pretty rubbish. The advantages are that it was very cheap at the time, and for £50 (or free as it was) you can hardly complain. I would, however, expect it to work most of the time. Spec (What there is of it!): Screen: Large but with low pixel and colour count Memory: 64mb Camera: 2x with 2x zoom, but small poor quality pictures Battery Life: 3 Days Stndby, 3 Hrs Talk Time Features: Calculator, Calendar,...
  • Pros: You probably won't loose it, cheap
  • Cons: Can't list them all, generally not very good

  • Excerpt: This is the worst handset made by NEC! First of all, the syncronizing software. It doesn't have a very professional look but the idea is nice. You can do some Sync by cable but the setup the .VFC file cards to transfer to your contact list. It doesn't sync directly with Outlook or with the MS Phone book. But going back to the File Transfer, we know that it get improved on the later versions. Regarding the handset... the look isn't the best.
  • Pros: .  .  .  has camera .  .  .
  • Cons: Large in the hand .  Keys not user friendly .

  • Excerpt: I got this phone free on contract along with a free dvd player from the net. I was a bit disapointed with the size as it was quite bulky. The three network however is very competitive with a tariff for every budget, however if you have to call the helpline I think it goes through to a different country and it is difficult to understand the person on the end of the line! It is quite weird getting used to using it and it can be quite slow in a computer like way.
  • Pros: Three network is cheap
  • Cons: phone is v big !

  • Excerpt: To me the idea of a mobile phone needing a camera has always seemed like a streaker/stripper needing a changing room. It's a bit of a futile gesture. There is more to go wrong with the phone for a start. This coupled with the fact that the images are usually of very low quality. and the only thing you can do with them is send them to others, it's pointless. Why don't people get digital cameras, which is my first problem with this phone.
  • Pros: free to get with pay and go, good functions
  • Cons: size, camera images blurry

  • Excerpt: Having been a hardened fan of Nokia phones, and a committed Orange customer, the chance of me moving networks was slim – until I received my last phone bill. That was enough to drive anyone on, particularly with the shining option of “3”’s £35 per month any time, any network deal. They were even prepared to give me a second handset on pay-as-you-go for free. What a deal. Slowly though, a few problems became apparent.
  • Pros: Cheap contracts, qwerty keyboard
  • Cons: poor battery life, attrocious signal coverage

  • Excerpt: You might think this phone is expensive. You might be wary of being tied to a tarrif. You might not know much about the Three network. Put your doubts aside - this is the mobile phone bargain of the year. -> WHY I BOUGHT THE e808 Well, simple. It was free. On Pay As You Go. Well, OK, it cost me a penny (for the address verification) - but wow, was it worth that hard-earned 1p!!
  • Pros: Currently free on Pay As You Go !  Amazing images & features .
  • Cons: Navigation needs some getting used to .

  • Excerpt: nec e808 So far, I love this phone! Okay, details. I got the grey/brushed aluminium look phone (known as the Champagne model)- much better than the black one IMHO. Bought mine through a direct mobile phone company, who were quite responsive and threw in a free minidisc player, so all good. Out the box, it was simple as inserting sim, and I was up and running within 20 minutes.
  • Pros: Great screen, video, email, keyboard, 3g services
  • Cons: Size, battery life (ish),
