      A simple phone

      My last phone, which incidentally was also pink, sadly broke one day whilst sending a message. I coped for a couple of weeks without one until I got round to purchasing a new one. I went with this Nokia slide after only a quick search. I didn't want a slide phone but if you excluded touch phones there was not much choice in design! I bought it from Argos for about £30 but I did have to buy top-up at the same time.

      My first thought in using was that it was horrible. I didn't like the keys and how you navigated the phone. But now that I have used the phone for several months I can see that this is just getting used to a new phone.

      In terms of design, everyone knows what a 3310 is like? Pushed together it is smaller height-wise and when you slide it out to reveal the keys it is slightly taller than a 3310. It is about 3/4 of the thickness of one. The front of the phone is hot pink whilst the back is black. I can't remember exactly how long I have had this phone, perhaps six months but the middle button which is your selector is scratched and some of the pink is now white.

      The keys are black and are only separated by row not individually. I found these really difficult to use at first as using the top row I found the bottom of the slide bit in my way.

      This phone is a simple phone in today's market and is the quality that you would have expected in the mid- 2000's. It is colour but the camera on it is very basic. It is not even worth using, in fact my phone I had in 2007/8 had a better camera. It has the usual calendar and phone functions. It does have the internet though I have never been able to connect, though this is down to me as the last phone I had wasn't set up properly for it either!

      I currently have over 1800 messages stored which impresses me and sent messages are automatically stored. However looking for a particular one is not an easy task as there is no search function, it is simply a case of scrolling through. As I will mention later slow speed of the phone does not help!

      One of the games is pinball which was a welcome discovery. Although is not the best it is good enough to waste a few minutes.

      Battery life is excellent. As I only use this for text messaging and occasionally the phone and there are no energy draining features I can get over a week out of it without charging and even when the battery icon goes red and flashes it can still last a couple of days!

      Now my main gripe is that it is so slow! It is not that bad but I sometimes have to wait for it to catch up with itself. You can see this particularly when playing pinball. Some things are instant but with others you have to wait a second, it even has a loading bar!

      My other complaint is that there is no calculator. I understand this is a basic phone but even the basic of the basics has a calculator and it has a convertor so why not a calculator?!

      For 90% of the mobile phone owning population I would not recommend this. But those who are not bothered by fancy phones and are willing to put with a little slowness this phone will do what you need at a low cost.
