Awesome Nokia phone with all the features of its time!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I bought this phone from someone, and I was skeptical about its performance. To date it was one of the best phones I ever used. It is a slim, thin and a decent looking [compared to many weird looking phones out there] phone. It has a metallic body, which was extremely handy in my case as Im a professional cell mishandler. Other features include a 2MP camera [video, picture capability], a memory card, bluetooth, USB port, Java enabled, MMS support, radio etc.
Excerpt: After 4 years of daily use, this phone still working without any problems. This stylish phone did not lose its elegance after all these years. It was the first Nokia with 16M colors screen. The call quality is very good, and of course it depends on the carrier. It also has a good music player with 5-band equalizer. The sound quality of this phone is awesome that is better than other music phones.
Pros: Elegant Design, Stainless Steel finishing, 16M colors Screen, Very good sound quality, Easy UI (Nokia's S40), Notification Light
Cons: Battery Life (<2.5 Days), Limited internal memory (7.8 MB), 2.5 mm Headphone, No Flash
Excerpt: It's a good, simple phone in terms of everyday use. Internet features and multimedia are obviously not that great, but given that it is a budget handset it's understandable. However, it achieves the basics very well - call quality is excellent, text messaging is easy, the UI is easy to navigate, battery life after two years is still long, the display is very colourful and bright and it's friendly on the pocket. Recommended.
Pros: Clear call quality, Battery life, Easy to hold and pocket-friendly, User-friendly interface, Blue indicator lights on the side of the phone is a nice touch, Colourful, bright display
Cons: Average camera, Not much on-board memory, Lack of 3G (though it is only a budget phone), 2.5mm headphone connector, Marks and scratches easily
Summary: This is an ok phone. I bought it because I broke mine and didn't want to spend a ton of money as my contract didn't reach 2 years yet. It's an older model, so of course it might not meet the demands of a modern user. However, it works well, has everything that's necessary for an average phone user: buttons are easy to use, has alarm, calculator, etc. The only thing Nokia doesn't do well in is hands free mode.
