Advantages: robust, easy to use, does what you need a phone to do
Disadvantages: strange behaviour when the back comes loose and phone turned on
I got this phone over a year ago now, I am not much of a must have person when it comes to mobile phones, hence why I got a phone which is quite old by now.
I have found the phone to be quite robust in terms of banging it around, the aluminium casing protests it very well from everyday use. The phone still feels in as good condition as when I got it.
The user interface is fairly intuitive, there is a main menu with icons that contain sub menus, it took a little getting used to where exactly everything was but this only took a day or 2 and would be the same as any phone. I find the phone is very quick and easy to use for the main functions like texting and calling.
The keys are of reasonable size and add to the ease of use of the phone.
The phone came with a set of Nokia headphones which are of surprising quality and I have used to talk whilst driving and also to listent o the fairly useful FM radio.
The phone also has a hands free loudspeaker option, this is too quiet to be of any use in my opinion, unless in a really quiet place.
the phone comes with Carl Zeiss lens technology on it's camera, Carl Zeiss is renowned for work on all kinds of optical systems from cameras to microscopes. The camera is a measly 3.1 megapixels, but if you want to take good pictures, you should probably buy a good camera.
The phone can also take video with the same camera, i have never put a picture or video on my computer so cannot comment on the quality in that respect, but when watched back on the phone it passes muster.
The phone can also store some music to be played back using the music player and either through loudspeaker or headphones.
All in all a robust and very useable phone.
One gripe is that when the back cover comes loose, my profile gets reset to a default and i have to change it all again, strange behaviour but not significant enough to put me off the phone.
Summary: Easy to use, if you don't need an up to date phone but want some style then this is the phone for u
