Advantages: Easy to use. Very good features. Reliable. Smart looking.
Disadvantages: Not many ringtones included.
I have had this phone for about 2 years now and am very happy with my purchase. I wanted a phone that would predominantly be used for making/receiving calls and texts but which also had some additional entertainment features included.
Firstly, this phone is very good for making calls and texts. I can't really say much more about this except that calls have never cut out or suffered from poor quality and texts have always been easy and quick to compose. Some people dislike the keypad which doesn't have separate buttons for each number like most phones, but this doesn't take long to get used to and means that you never accidentally call someone whilst it is in your pocket (I can't tell you how many photos of the inside of my pocket I had on my old K700i phone).
The internet browser on this phone is very good considering the screen size. You are able to browse web pages at full size (obviously the text is very small) then zoom in on whichever part of the page you desire to read/navigate to. The internet is a little slow and won't challenge even the most basic smartphone for ease of use but for the occasional user it is more that sufficient.
Sound quality is excellent; ringtones and MP3 music is very clear and the volume is not restricted to a whisper - it does go quite loud. The 1mp camera is also very good and despite the shutter noise going off on each snap is very easy to use. Quality is good for a phone camera and you can easily bluetooth your pics to your computer if needed.
One slight disadvantage would be the limited number of included ringtones. This may be true of all nokia phones and is very annoying when you hear your ringtone going off on the train or wherever and finding that it is not your phone going off (after much scrambling around in your jacket to find it). You can use an MP3 file of recording taken with your phone though which I quickly figured out would be a good idea.
As with most nokias, the menus are easy to navigate and everything is easily found. The phone's buttons and keypad as previously mentioned are easy to use and dont require small fingers to operate.
Overall, this is a very good feature phone and, having researched plenty of options, I think this is one of the best phones of its level for the price range. I would definitely buy this again.
Summary: For the price - Excellent!
