Excerpt: Overall a low end smartphone in my opinion,super slow processor at 434Mhz single core,not good,very unresponsive,takes few seconds to load an app,frequent lag in UI,and hangs frequently,and sometimes ever turns off itself,phone can also get very hot at times.Nevertheless,it is indestructible.
Pros: Carl Zeiss lense, Dual LED flash for camera, Nice back so we dont really need a cover., Indestructible phone
Summary: If you are buying this for the GPS function, think again. As many others have commented, it takes forever for this phone to figure out where it is. That makes it pretty useless for around the town driving. In addition, it has a pathetic accuracy level.
Pros: Excellent smatphone that has WIFI, GPS, AT&T 3G and GSM quad band. Using it wiht T-Mobile SIM card. After upgrading the phone to latest OVI maps and latest firmware, can load thru OVI Suite latest maps for free. Has text to speech directions in English, French...(with street names). Got it quickl...
Summary: I'm writing this review from the perspective of an American who lives and travels overseas. Because of this, I was looking for an unlocked, quad-band GSM phone that had 3G, Wifi, GPS, a decent screen size for video and a good app selection.
Excerpt: I can't get my phone to last through the day no matter how i use it...unless i don't. It will restart at least once a day. I have had the phone for about three months now and i'm getting rid of it...I have had enough of the bugs..
great hardware, good software, horrible customer service
3 May 2010
Summary: In terms of functions, the phone is miles ahead of iPhone. Unfortunately, the customer service/tech support is horrible. Every time, the CR puts you on long long hold for no reason (I have no idea what they were checking, because they haven't even bothered to ask what issue I had).
Pros: Multitasking, Copy/Paste, memory removable and expandable, battery removable, quality build, standard charger, earphone, RealPlayer can accept many video formats, Ovi maps, NOT shiny, yet beautiful, Nice little "vibration" when clicking
Cons: keeps asking what option to connect, does not allow one to set the defaults in many places, the dialpad disappears after the call is connected (meaning a pain for navigating the receiving company's phone menu), No built-in SIP client, Ovi online constant outage, limited language display choices.
Summary: You don't need to get this model to get the GPS feature. All new Nokia smartphones come with it. The GPS is nice to have but does not have all the features of my 3-year old Magellan, so I wouldn't consider it a replacement.
Pros: Full touchscreen keyboard. GPS. First phone I've owned that's actually practical for web-browsing. 3.5mm headphone jack. Good battery life. Good camera, has flash and a secondary camera for self-portraits. Subscribe to podcasts. Came with 8 gig micro SD card. (Luckily I already had SD adapter to ...
Cons: Proprietary phone-to-USB cable. Other than the flashlight I am not impressed with the apps. Also it seems a lot of people have problems after upgrading firmware; installed apps are erased! Sometimes the stylus is needed for navigating web pages. Touchscreen response sometimes slow. Nokia music st...
