5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, and does it well. 1 April 2013
By Andy
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I bought this in a conscious move away from my battery sapping, overcomplicated and unreliable brick of a 'smart' phone and I am so pleased I did. The 206 is well designed, light weight and has a standby time measured in tens of days. I find in regular use I am charging it after 4 or 5 days, mainly out habit as it usually still has a couple of bars of battery left. The screen is bright and big enough to be used for the odd bit of web-browsing, though prolonged browsing would be fiddly and frustrating, especially given the lack of WiFi. There are built in apps for Facebook and email which work well. The buttons on the keypad are big enough to make texting easy (though the lettering on the keys is small). I didn't get on with touch screen keyboards that disappear just when you need them so it's good to have tactile buttons again. Navigation around the menus is well designed and quite intuitive. There are lots of things you can configure too, like the shortcuts at the base of the screen, and the items that appear, and the order they appear in, when you click the 'goto' button (eg. I put 'lock screen' at the top of the list). I like that contacts can have multiple numbers listed, and other details, and that you can back-up these to the Micro SD card if you have one. A phone like this will always be a compromise, it would be easy to criticise the very basic camera and tinny sounding music (much better on a decent pair of earphones - not the included ones!) but addressing that would take you back into expensive smart phone territory. You pays your money... (etc.) but overall I am extremely pleased with this little phone which does exactly what it says on the tin, and a little bit more besides.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this phone 21 Aug. 2013
Colour Name:Black
I bought this phone to replace a cheap smartphone which was rubbish and I'm delighted with the Nokia 206. I've put in a micro SD card to store all my music and even using the phone as an mp3 player the battery lasts for 5 days. I can access my email on the train and it's so easy to text with the large screen and bright display.The camera is surprisingly good and you can share photos via Bluetooth.
Although this is a budget phone it looks beautiful and feels like a much more expensive product - highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic phone! 2 April 2013
By Chris
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I only use this phone for calls and texts; it has a biggish screen and biggish buttons making it very easy to use, and the Nokia menu system is user-friendly which I also like!
I have not tried the camera but it has a good spec. for the price of this phone.
Incredible battery life only needs charging about once a week the way I use it.

If you're a smart phone user then this one will be a no or a backup.
The battery life puts any smart phone to shame it'll last many day compared to many hours of use.

Nokia should make more phones like this it's what they do best and there are millions who are happy with a t9 like this as all they want to do is talk and text.

100% recommended for talk text and a little web.

do not buy if you want smart phone features

buy if you want clear call quality and amazing battery life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but two serious design faults 8 Jan. 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This isn't a bad phone in most respects; battery life is long (nearly a week), camera is decent (considering what you pay), mp3 player is ok, general interface is intuitive.

My main gripe with it is the main central button; it's too closely connected to the scrolling buttons so it is very easy to press it by mistake. This is really annoying (I end up sending texts by mistake and having to quickly cancel them) and I don't understand why Nokia couldn't prevent such a basic flaw.

Also, why on earth does it not have a USB connection? Bluetooth - at least for me - is not reliable enough to transfer lots of data/music etc. So transferring photos, data etc. is a bit of a pain.

Otherwise, a decent phone but those two points are serious failings as far as I am concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars An attractive, slimline phone with camera 9 Jun. 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Whilst this is not a 'smart-phone', it is nevertheless smart, slim and comfortable in its design. I decided on this one having read so many other very enthusiastic recommendations by users. I need to have confidence that my phone will maintain a strong battery for as long as possible between charges. It has proven this benefit since I started using it three weeks ago. The charger supplied with it only has a very short cable which is annoying, however I have since also purchased a spare with a longer cable.

My criticism however is reserved for the tiny instruction booklet, which is in extremely indistinct tiny print, in light blue on the white paper! Given that this phone is now most likely to be bought by those of us older users who are not interested in the latest, all singing, all dancing phones which gobble both battery power and money, the very indistinct print of the supplied instructions is not helpful for less than perfect eye-sight. Who decided to use this colour and font size??? Nokia - please review the presentation of your instructions and rectify to a more suitable and legible style!!!!
I would however recommend this phone itself to others who like the convenience and familiarity of a reliable Nokia.

Identifying a suitable spare charger has however been frustrating with those identified on Amazon as suitable for the 206, showing a flat pin rather than the small round pin for my phone. I asked questions on-line however, and kind purchasers of the charger I was considering, reassured me that theirs was indeed suitable. (Suppliers identifying their flat pin version for the 206 should check this information re suitability!!!)
