Disadvantages: BIG, DATED, LACK OF FEATURES
The Nokia 402 was once a very good phone, and when I got my first one, I was very pleased.
However I shall write this opinion based on today’s market, and indeed what consumers should think about.
By today’s standards the 402 is a brick.
*BRICK = Large phone, comparable to your typical house break in dimensions
It was the first phone to use the new Nokia profile set-up, and the fully graphical display was revolutionary, however by today standards it is small and very limited.
It has all your typical features that could pass it as a decent phone:
Loads of ring tones, great if you have a winging child who wants s a phone that can handle even the bleepiest of phone tune.
PAY AS YOU GO - £50
Snake – The game – Its evil, but schoolyards across the nation, this is the “in” thing to have. Basically it’s a good phone for all those kids who seem to “need” a phone on them.
However these are the reasons why you shouldn’t buy this phone:
Its large, compared to today’s compact technology, may as well pay the extra to save the lining of your pocket.
No vibrating alert means you might miss a lot of calls
However you can change the covers and this was the main reason for everyone buying the phone, I bet Nokia and 3rd parties made a packet out of them. I mean, come on, £10 - £30 for a piece of moulded plastic!
Summary – By today’s standard this phone is lacking in handy features, however it has the bones of a good phone. Buy only if you are very money conscious.
