Nokia 2330 classic
Advantages: Low cost, Reliable
Disadvantages: Basic, Very basic!
Before anyone starts questioning my street cred, I must point out that this is my work mobile, supplied by my company and not of my own choosing!
Nonetheless, this isn't a phone to be entirely dismissed. How can you dismiss it when it can be bought for as little as £10 on a PAYG contract? It's a mobile phone for the masses.
As the main selling point of this phone is its price, don't expect much in the way of features. This is not an Iphone or smartphone. In fact it's really just a...urm...phone.
Yes, there are some basic functions such as bluetooth, camera etc.. - things that you kind of expect on a mobile phone nowadays.
The phone itself is lightweight but reasonably well put together. There's a few squeaks here and there, but it won't fall apart too easily. In fact, trying to get the battery cover off is quite a task. You'll need nimble fingers to press the battery release button while prying the battery cover from the rest of the phone.
Ergonomically, the phone's buttons are well sized and positioned, making it easy to text while on the move. The screen could be a little bigger, but it's kinda the size that you would expect from a £10 phone.
Battery life is surprisingly good and the phone will hold a charge for a number of days with mild usage. In fact, if you rarely use the phone at all, you can expect charges to last for up to a week (no, that's not a misprint!) Quite impressive for such a small, cheap phone.
At full volume, sound is okay - though if you're slightly hard of hearing then you may want to use the supplied earphones... or look for another phone!
Having used the phone for around 1 and a half years now, I can report that the phone is extremely reliable and hasn't let me down once. No glitches, errors or sudden signal droppage (take note Apple!)
I think everyone has had an encounter with someone who has asked the question 'Why can't a phone just be a phone?' Well, the Nokia 2330c is the answer to that question.
A basic, simple but very inexpensive phone.
Summary: A basic, simple but very inexpensive phone.
