Outdated for some, perfect basics for others: Nokia 3210
Member Name: tenkilos
Advantages: battery life, durability & build quality, easy navigation
Disadvantages: lack of many modern features, relatively heavy
Nokia 3210 is the epitome of a classic mobile phone. At a time when the mobile phone was still a relative novelty and most looked more like a 20kg dumbell than a communication device, the 3210 was a real inspiration. Its aerial is hidden inside the phone and its design is sleek for its time.
It is true that this phone is now seriously out of date. It won't let you surf the web, take and send photos or store a collection of your favourite music. For a lot of people, the mobile phone is a device used for calling and texting and if those are the functions important to you, this is still a great piece of kit. Its battery will last a number of days which is unheard of with modern handsets. While the screen is black and white and is not a touchscreen, it is considerably easier to see and navigate than the complex menus seen in modern handsets.
Moreover, the 3210 has a number features which modern mobiles don't have. The most notable one is the ability to change the outside casing to one of your choice. While these aren't as widely available as they once were, it's still possible to get a variety from a number of online shops.
Summary: A great phone if calling & texting is all you want, but lacking many modern day features.
