Advantages: Does what a mobile needs to do
Disadvantages: Doesn't do much else
If you want a fancy, all singing, all dancing high tech piece of technology then please, look somewhere else. This phone is not designed to amaze and astound. It's designed to do exactly what a mobile phone should do. Make calls and send texts and not much else. For that, it is fantastic. It's very cheap and very simple. Yes, it does feel cheap and plasticy but thats because it is cheap and plasticy. I bought this phone because its very small, very basic and above all its what most mobiles are not in todays market, functional. I like that its basic. I like that its small. I like that its cheap and plain looking. I like these things because at the end of the day it does all you need a mobile phone to do. The call clarity is good, the messaging layout is good and the menu is good. The main drawback is it is pretty slow. Inbox takes an age to load if you have a lot of messages and you certainly can have a lot, I have over a 1000 on there at the moment, 99% of which I don't need but it's always nice to know you can. Obviously if you compare it to the iPhone or pretty much any other new phone it is rubbish in comparison. The question is, should we discard this phone just because it has a rubbish camera and no music player? The answer is no, phones today have too much focus on wowing the consumer and this is great, thats business, people want flash mobiles so companies give them flash mobiles. I believe however that once again, Nokia has created one of the best basic phones out there at the moment.
Summary: Functional and affordable. Although is that all you want from a phone these days?
