Nokia 6303 classic
Advantages: A good reliable phone with some good features
Disadvantages: Not up to smartphone quality
Myself and my partner recently upgraded our phone contracts & we got a free phone with it. We got given a Nokia 6303 Classic phone as our free phone.
Nokia is probably my favourite brand when it comes to mobile phones as they are simple to use but come with most of the features that I look for in a phone.
The 6303 has quite a basic look to it. The standard phone keypad is silver with a large black screen which is actually very handy if you suffer with eyesight problems. The screen is of a very good quality with the text and pictures on it 100% clear which impressed me as compared to others on the market, this is a relatively cheap phone. The phone is also available in two other colours to the one above which are standard black and black with pink.
Thie phone is really lightweight and compact so fits very easily into a pocket or handbag, though as its not a flip or slide phone, you do have to remember to lock the keypad or else you end up phoning people by accident and running up a huge bill!
This phone does have a 3.2 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom and autofocus as well as a flash, auto timer and various modes of displaying and viewing your photos which you can have rather a lot of fun with.
This phone also has a video recorder with 4x zoom and also includes features such as music player, voice recorder and bluetooth.
Obviously all the standard features such as text, caller id, speed dial, gallery, call timer etc all feature as standard on this phone.
This phone to me is perfect for people of all ages. It is quite a smart looking phone, though obviously doesn't match the quality of the latest smartphones. However, as a bog standard phone with some added features for fun, this one is pretty good and I would recommend it.
If you have a phone contract, this phone is generally available for free on most contracts, even the cheapest ones. To buy it as a pay-as-you-go phone, the prices do seem to vary quite drastically between network providers. However, you can generally seem to get this phone for anywhere between £79.99 and £99.99 from most providers.
I do think the phone is worth the lower end price, but I would say it is a bit overpriced at the higher end price as although this is a really good phone which I do recommend, it would be considered quite basic nowadays in comparison to some of the up and coming phones on the market with apps etc.
Overall if you are after a phone with some really good features, but isn't overly complicated to use, then I would recommend you try this one. The menus are really easy to navigate around and don't contain any jargon that techno-phobes wouldn't understand. There are generally nine places to go to from the main menu which take you into different features that the phone offers and thats about it. You can have real fun with this phone as it includes features such as the camera and video recorder but it is relatively simple to use, so would be perfect for older or younger users.
There are around 5 games included as standard on this phone including sudoku, brain trainer and tower blocks, though obviously you can download more if you so wish, but I have had quite a bit of fun with just these.
If you are not into the latest smart phone technology, then this phone has all the features you will need and at a reasonably good price. I have personally found Nokia phones to be the most reliable out of all the phones I have tried in the past and would always recommend them and this one is no different. Due to it being quite lightweight, it doesn't seem particuarly durable, but don't drop it and you won't have a problem!
Overall I really like this phone and have quite a bit of fun with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a non smartphone mobile.
Summary: A great phone
