A good phone, but fails to compete with the phones of the same price group!

  • Excerpt: This phone is robust and feels great in the hand, but fails to compete with the other phones which fall in the same Price Group. Excellent for simple use but not for the people who love to MultiTask. Preserving the "Nokia Built", drop it a hundred times but it wont give up.
  • Pros: Good Looks, Good build quality
  • Cons: No Camera shutter button, No Flash, Lags, Outdated UI

  • Excerpt: I am dissapointed with build quality of the phone. I have always trusted Nokia, for it's amazing build quality, but this time I don't. Though it has a 1Ghz ARM11 processor, its rather slow than speedy, especially when you update it to Nokia Belle Refresh.
  • Pros: Sharp display., Nice call quality., Nice design, changable battery covers.
  • Cons: Poor build quality, no screen protection., Small display, aspect ratio not suited for such small screens., Battery lasts a day., Camera's quality is dissapointing., Poor recording for a 5MP camera., Web on a stock browser is dissapointing, laggy., No 3D GPU. Many elements in OS are laggy, because...

  • Excerpt: I loved its price, the size, the screen resolution, call quality and fast processing. I hated the unconfortable size of the screen for typing, the camera without autofocus (useless for scanning documents), the very short battery life, the limited apps for Symbian Belle.
  • Pros: Value for the money!, Fast
  • Cons: Camera, Battery Life

  • Excerpt: Well I dont like this phone. It has its cheap build,which scratches so easily. And it makes those, squeeky noises while pressed in hand.Performance of this phone is a shame, especially while talking about web surfing. Browser has big lags, sometimes impossible to use.
  • Pros: Sharp display, WiFi
  • Cons: Bad camera quality, Sluggish, laggy UI. Sometimes smooth., Lacks 3D GPU., Battery doesnt last long. And more... I just gotta go to toilet and watch a movie. BYE

Great phone for music

  • Excerpt: Great phone for music: after using a normal black and white phone for several years I wanted to buy a new one. I had this phone when I was in college and I really liked it. Although it is discontinued now, the screen size is 2 inches and it has 5mb internal memory and 2 GB external memory.
