Around four months ago my old Motorola decided to give up the ghost and stop working so I was on the look out for a new phone, I wanted something that was not a touch screen as I am useless with them and something that could survive in my house with the children so I opted for a nokia.
To be honest it was the colour that won it for me as I have the pink version of the phone pictured. I wanted something girly for a change. I brought mine on o2 pay as you go for £40 which I think is rather reasonable for a nokia.
It is easy to use and is exactly the same as nokias I have had in the past as far as the settings go and everything is in the same place so great for a technology phobic me.
In the four months I have gad it though the apps section of my phone has crashed twice and I have had to delete and reload all of the apps in thee which is a bit of a pain and not something I would expect from a nokia that are usually good phones.
It has lost all the hone numbers stored in it twice too for some random reason.
It is a slide phone to open and the top piece of the slide already has started to come loose, it rocks slightly now which is not good after just four months.
Over the last few weeks I have noticed that around once a day when it has been being used on the Internet for a while and got warm it will just cut out on me.
Overall I probably wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone and as far s nokias are concerned they used to be fantastic but I won't be buying another one.
This is waste of money , I dont know why nokia has come up with such a horrible phone. I am having software issue with this phone, unwanted files automatically created, image files disappears automatically, the menu is lagging, I have a 2 sec delay when I am trying to answer a call because the phone is taking for ever to show the caller, touchscreen is very very poor etc... There was a time when every Nokia phone u got was a good phone but now they've fallen behind. It is a good thing that I will be able to return this phone.
Overall i can say this is a very very bad phone and it is not worth his money under any circumstances. I hope the people from Nokia will have the decency to pull it off market soon since the sales are nothing compared with the bad image it brings to the brand.
There was a time when Nokia were the kings of the mobile phone business - using this phone only confirmed for me that this time is long past.
Taken as an upgrade on my old Nokia - a 7110 - things sounded pretty positive before I actually received the handset. A hybrid model, halfway between a touchscreen phone and a slider, it sounded like it would be a good intermediate model for someone who wants the benefits of a modern smartphone without completely leaving behind tradition. Having fat, clumsy fingers, I wasn't sure I was ready for a full touchscreen.
In the flesh, though, this phone is enormously underwhelming - so much so that I returned it after a week and demanded a different model. It's that bad that I just couldn't use it.
What's the problem, then? Well ... five or six years ago, this would have been an acceptable phone. Not a great phone, but an acceptable one. Now, though, it's just been left behind by its rivals - as much as the idea of the phone might work, the reality doesn't. The touchscreen is simply terrible - to say it's sluggish barely does it justice; you stab and prob at the screen in the hope more than the expectation of it reacting. When it does, it's rarely what you've asked it to do. Just navigating the menus is a chore, let alone doing anything complex - scrolling is simply horrible. It just struggles to do the basics.
Internet usage is a nightmare; not only is access painfully slow, it has enormous problems displaying a webpage in any kind of useable form. I tried, I failed to even check football scores on the BBC website, and I gave up. It's not up to even simple tasks.
Using the keypad is okay, but the hybrid design means you can't even rely on this - it forces you to use both touchscreen and keypad together, and it's awful. This phone might have been okay if you'd had a choice between modern and traditional, but in pushing you into combining both methods of input, it becomes an unbearable mish-mash that works for no-one and does almost nothing.
This would be understandable if you had to pay more to get better phones - but you don't. Samsung's entry-level Galaxy Y and Tocco Lite phones are both cheap and easy to get hold of, and both are incomparably better than this steaming pile of awfulness. Avoid.
I have recently purchased this phone after my very old phone finally went kaput! I was gutted because it was an old style phone with buttons, not with a touch screen, and unfortunately I am a slight technophobe, preferring to stick with what I know and I was hanging onto my old phone for dear life!
Anyway, it decided it had just had enough of being dropped and getting wet and so it was time for me to get a new one. There are a few phones about with a keypad rather than touch screens but they are pretty basic and boring, so when I came upon this 'hybrid' I was very pleased!!
As I was an existing O2 customer I got some money off this phone, but even at full price at Phones 4 U it would only have cost £59.99 on pay as you go. I got the phone in white and metallic pink, but it is also available in black.
Basically the phone has a keypad, which slides down, for texting & typing - which is ideal for me as I hate using a touch screen to text! - but it also has a touch screen for most other functions. For someone who isn't used to using a touch screen I can say that this has been very easy to get to grips with, the menu is clear, all the functions are easy to find and use and overall I am extremely pleased with it for the price. Sometimes when tapping on the touch screen I have to do it a couple of times, though I'm not sure how much this is the phone being awkward or whether it is user error! The only annoying thing really is that the phone locks really quickly, for instance when you are in the middle of typing a text and you pause for a minute you have to then unlock the phone again to carry on, I have looked through the manual and gone through every option on the phone settings and there appears to be no way of altering this, so that it doesn't lock for say 2 minutes.
By going online to Nokia Ovi I am able to download various apps and games to the phone, again this was very easy to use, and many of these are free which is great.
The phone has all the basic functions you would expect; calendar, to do list, calculator, radio, internet access, notes function, camera (2 mp) etc. I have yet to upload any music to the phone but from what I can work out this is also pretty easy to do.
Overall this is a good phone for anyone who doesn't want a really complicated phone with a million different functions that will basically do anything apart from make you a cup of tea! It offers the basic phone functions we have all come to expect, but is modern, looks good and is easy to use.
