Summary: This phone came with a two pin plug and the predictive test appears in a language which has a lot of umlauts and zeds in it. I think it might be for the eastern european market? So texting takes rather a long time. However I have have two of these phones before, (english versions!) and I find them fine for my purposes, they are reasonably robust providing you don't put them through the washing machine, as is my habit. Suggest check before buying which plug they have.
Summary: Like any of the other Nokia phones in this price range, they satisfy the fundamental requirements brilliantly - (a) the transceivers in these units are superb, so signal strength is always fantastic for me (anywhere I've been, using O2), (b) lacking any bells and whistles in terms of functionality means the battery life is ridiculously long. These two features are all I want from a phone, so the units are 100% fit for my purposes.
Nokia 1800 Easy to use cheap phone for those on the go
23 August 2012
Excerpt: I purchased myself a Nokia 1800 about 6 months ago, as a cheap replacement for a Sony Erricson phone that I bought but was difficult to use, with bad audio quality (thats for another review) I paid £5 from Carphone Warehouse for the handset on O2, and as an existing customer, I did not have to buy a top up or anything to qualify for the £5 offer, which is great in the current climate. For £5, I have been very pleased with the results.
Pros: Easy to use, durable, well lit screen, good audio quality .
Cons: Old clicking buttons (really loud click on every press ! ! )
Excerpt: I have been using Nokia N97 for a long time. The phone was working fine but sadly I lost it. I had to replace it immediately as I had a lot of important call to make. I went to the nearest phone shop I could find and bought the cheapest phone available. Performance First of all let me tell you about what's in the box.
Pros: Extremely cheap, durable
Cons: does not suport internet facility, apps and 3g network .
Summary: This phone is neat in the hand and the ring can be penetrating BUT the lack of a sliding cover is a nuisance and some of the words used when, for instance, putting in contact numbers,could be confusing. Why not 'enter' for the new number, rather than 'use'? In daylight the screen is all but invisible and I haven't yet discovered whether there is a way of brightening it.
Summary: I bought this because it had a low price, basic functions, and other reviews were complimentary. You get a basic phone by a reputable manufacturer - that's all I needed and I am happy with it. No complaints so far.
