Disadvantages: Not for the image concious
Do you ever get bored of all those gimmiky phones out there? If so then the Nokia 2310 is for you. At only £19.99 this phone is a steal for anyone who just wants a phone to do what a phone should : Ring and text. I went through a period last year were I kept breaking or misplacing phones and I couldnt afford to keep buying new ones and it was at this time that I discovered the Nokia 2310.
The Pros: I bought this phone at the Carphone Warehouse and it came unlocked which was brilliant because I could put my old sim card in it without any hassle. The phone itself it quite small and weighs about 85g. It has a colour screen and a built in radio although I only used this about once I can see the advantage for those who like to have some sort of music with them but dont want to be carrying an MP3 player around. The battery life on this phone, as with many old style Nokias, is brilliant lasting anywhere up to a week and being relativly quick to charge. The phone itself is very robust - I dropped it many times but it never had so much as a scratch on it and showed no signs of breaking. Basically this phone does what it says on the tin - it works. It has a really simple layout which is really easy to get around and retains some classic nokia features such as snake and the original Nokia ring tone! You can still make the phone your own by downloading ring tones and putting a welcome note for when you turn it on. This phone also takes a classic Nokia charger which is good if you lose it as you can pick a new one up on ebay very cheap due to the large number of phones that use them. The quality of the phone is brilliant and you can adjust the volume when making calls making it easier to hear people if you are in a busy place.
The Cons: The phone to my knowledge only comes in Blue which for some people can be a bit of a turn off as it is not the most attractive blue. The phone doesnt have predictive text and it can be quite difficult to switch back to manual text if you have got used to a newer model phone and it does make it slower to send messages to people.
Overall this phone is brilliant I have never had any problems in using it and the price is so cheap that if you were to break it chances are you could replace it without breaking the bank! It went down in price to being one of the cheapest phones on the market. This phone is for those people who just want a phone to be a phone, not a a camera or video recorder or an mp3 player just a phone. Its sturdy and lightweight and easy to use and its pro's far outweigh the cons if this is the sort of thing you are looking to buy. Its not an exciting phone but it is a useful phone which wont break easily and can be easily replaced.
Summary: Great little phone.. does what it says on the box
