  • Excerpt: "My Philips Diga is an "ancient" phone with good facilities for the times it appeared on the market. You can access fast the menu functions through shortcuts on the keys. The display is small, made only by one line of text, but it is used quite smart : the text slides from one side to another. The buttons are very nice and soft (I like them more that any others now on market!!!). It is a more wide rather than thick phone and it`s lighter than Nokia ...
  • Pros: Shortcuts to menu functions
  • Cons: Small display, very poor reception quality

  • Excerpt: "The Philips Diga phone has been nicknamed "The Brick" and it lives up to its name. I purchased a pair of these phones on the Cellnet U Tariff for use by my wife and myself, and to date we have been reasonably pleased. Most of my calls are between the two phones which was the initial reason for opting for the U Tariff - the charges are only 5p per minute. At the time the choiuce of phone was quite limited i.e. the Philips Diga or the Philips C12, ...
  • Pros: Big  -  can't  be lost
  • Cons: Big  -  Looks like a brick not too trendy !

Philips ph301

AliB, Ciao
21 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "...functions and menus - the Philips ph301 is very straightforward. Two function buttons underneath ‘Menu’ and ‘Names’, whatever you select you always have the option of ‘Exit’ or ‘OK’. The screen and buttons light up, there is a choice of 12 ringer types (I stick to the one that sounds most like a phone ringing!), with three ringer volumes (and silent!), I could go on about the menus but this phone has all the basics. Clearly labelled buttons, not too ...
  • Pros: Not complicated
  • Cons: None for me

  • Excerpt: "I bought a philips pH301 orange about one year ago. I am very happy becouse I don't need to pay nothing if I don't use. The calls are expensive but this is not realy a problem becouse I think a mobile phone is for be contacted and If ncesary make a call. If i need speak longer I would telephone from home or phone box. But I think my phone is very useful becouse I can receive e-mails, sms, and I don't need to pay nothing. The only problem that I see ...

  • Excerpt: "I used to have one of these phones. It was nicknamed "The Brick". The phone itself is quite solid. Because its big. It has quite a large screen, but it seems a little too big. The phone isn't very heavy and it is quite thin, but when you look at its height and width.... did I say it was big? Good things: It works Its sturdy The pay-as-you-go package only requires vouchers every 365 days (this is a VERY big plus point) Its very easy to use Bad ...

  • Excerpt: "People are constantly saying, dont bother with that phone, its well too big. The fact of the matter is, its a phone, you can speak down it and hear the other person down it. Its available on many good deals, mainly on the second hand market now. It might not be the best thing to carry around in your pocket, but it will fit into the car glove box or bag easily and you wont notice its there. It can stay their for an emergency. THe phone has good features, ...

  • Excerpt: "I still own a Philips Diga Phone but not by choice, the only reason I still have this phone is because it is the only phone I can afford to have just now. This phone is only available on the BTCellnet network theis is a good network and I always get a strong signal and good sound quality from my handset, but unfortunately the handset is big bulky and heavy. Compared with todays phones it is not even near the peak of technology and so, I havent even ...
  • Pros: It is easy to use and always has crystal clear sound quality .
  • Cons: It is big, heavy and many of the screens crack very easily .

  • Excerpt: "The Phillips Diga helped to bring down the costs of mobile telephony, making pre-paid handsets an option in Britain, where previously only the subsidising of handsets offset by connection charges and line rentals had made mobile phoens affordable. The phone was big, and the aerial dangerously exposed and flimsy, and in comparison with other phones of its time, the standby time was not great. However its display was better than a good deal of phones ...
  • Pros: Affordable, good menu system
  • Cons: Poor standby time, heavy, not aethestically pleasant .
