Advantages: Easy to use, durable, well lit screen, good audio quality.
Disadvantages: Old clicking buttons
I purchased myself a Nokia 1800 about 6 months ago, as a cheap replacement for a Sony Erricson phone that I bought but was difficult to use, with bad audio quality (thats for another review) I paid £5 from Carphone Warehouse for the handset on O2, and as an existing customer, I did not have to buy a top up or anything to qualify for the £5 offer, which is great in the current climate.
For £5, I have been very pleased with the results. The phone receives calls and texts as required, although doesnt have any of the more modern capabilities such as Bluetooth, picture messaging, a camera or the internet, however those are functions that I don't require from a mobile phone.
The phone, as with all Nokias, I have found easy to use, and without any prior use of this phone, I was easily able to pick up the phone and use it immediately without having to refer to the handbook for certain functions. The handset is lightweight and durable - over the last 6 months I have dropped it countless times and it is still in full working order, and has very minimal scratches to the cases and covering, so the phone still looks quite attractive. The screen is off a good size and well lit, so I have easily been able to read messages without straining my eyes, and I have found the audio quality to be absolutely fine throughout the 6 months.
It also has a built in torch in the top which has come in really handy when trying to change a bulb on a car headlight at night, and seeing my way around a dark caravan site!
The only real negative I can think of is as with a lot of older handsets, the keypad makes a clicking sound when the button is pressed ( from the actual button itself, rather than an audio tone) which can become quite irritating to both the phone user and the people around you (if you are part of the texting generation like myself, i'm constantly texting) but that really is nit picking.
For a cheap, easy to use phone, this comes highly recommended - although not for those who want any added frills / extras!
Summary: A cheap easy to use handset, for those who are happy with the very basics!
