Everything you need in a phone.

Advantages: Easy and extremely simple to use.
Disadvantages: Keypad hard to text with, screen cracked.
So this is one of my other phones ( me and the OH have 4 between us! ) its very very simple just like the other Nokia one which I reviewed.
The phone is a basic phone, do not expect much, it can make noises, make a simple call and send and receive text.
It was available in silver as well as black when I bought it, and I payed £10.00 for it at the time at a Vodafone store.
Unlike my other review on my other phone, this one is a slot slimmer and looks more modern, its also a more rounded shape.
Anyway, onto details in the phone.
Messaging is simple on this phone, open up the menu and there is an icon with a message on, just click on it and your bought straight to another menu with a few options, there you can create a text, look through your inbox, your sentbox, save drafts and there is also a chat feature, if someone has the same phone as you, put in their number and you can have a chat, I personally do not see the point as it just like texting! You can also send picture messaging, this is only little animated pictures though which are already on your phone, no sending 'REAL' pictures, you will be sent a code if you are sent a picture by somebody and you can view it online.
Click on contacts, which has a phonebook as the icon and you are straight into another menu, you get a few options, the first on is search contacts, you can also add certain people to your speed dial, delete contacts here and add them too.
You can have a lot of contacts, I am not sure if there is a point where it stops and you cant have any more, I have quite a lot but never get told to delete to make more space.
You can also call people and message them from the contacts list if you press the green button.
As with all phones you have the call register, here the screen displays your missed calls, received and dialled, all layed out perfectly and very easy to understand.
you can also keep track of how many messages you have sent and your last call duration time.
You click on here to get the settings for the whole phone, on this menu you can change your background picture ( dont get to excited you have limited options! usually a picture of a nice scenery ) you can also change your ringtone, your display settings, time and date, language, keypad settings ect..once again its all layed out perfectly and crystal clear to understand.
The battery on this phone doesn't seem to be as good as the 1650, I charge it for around 2 hours every 2 days, if I dont the battery will end up going.
You get a good few things on this phone, you get a flashlight which is great if your stuck in the dark, but do be warned it does waste your battery very quickly on this phone too!
You get a converter too, handy if your working out money or weighing something, a timer, a calender and you can also set reminders, a stop watch..
As you can see a good few extras, simple enough and not too fancy.
There is games on this phone just like on the other one, but you get 2 different choices, instead of Snake and car racing you get Solitaire and Forbidden Treasures which are okay I guess.
There is no internet on this phone just to warn you, its very simple! so avoid if you like to go online.
There is no bluetooth or camera so you cant have anything on it, you are provided with samples though so I find it fine.
Well as you can see very similar to the other phone, except it looks completely new and different.
If I had to choose between this and my 1650 version I would have to go for that one, as the keypad on this is a lot more harder to text with and also the screen cracked on this after a few months, it was because I dropped it but with my other phone, that thing has been through hell and stands perfect to this day.
The phone has great sound, loud and clear, it also has perfect reception when on the phone to people.
Summary: Its great value for the price.
