4.0 out of 5 stars Serene and beautiful track from Adam, 14 Mar. 2016
This review is from: Never Lift a Finger (MP3 Download)
Serene and beautiful track from Adam. Why on earth is this such a poor recording, though? The vocals sound like an outtake, the drums flat and horrible, it even seems to clip in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another sweet Nokia candy bar, 4 Feb. 2012
As a previous owner of the Nokia 1616 (an even cheaper handset with even less features) this phone was somewhat of an upgrade!

Who's it for?
The Nokia C1-01 is a basic phone but with enough technology so as you don't feel completely inferior to your smartphone friends - some of these features are incredibly basic. It does have a camera, for example, but I would only suggest using it if the subjects of your photos are incredibly ugly and you wish to flatter them.

What's it like?
It's nice and simple as you'd expect. It seems sensitive to interference, so don't stand next to any speakers during a call. It's loud and clear and has a loudspeaker function in case you want to keep your hands free (I'm not here to judge) Texting is also a pleasure and unlike the Nokia 1616, the keypad is nice to press and very quiet. The keypad is quite narrow and therefore I wouldn't recommend it for people with clumsy hands or the elderly alike.

It has an MP3 player - also a good time to mention that it has a proper headphone jack (good effort by Nokia) and using it with my own headphones on the train to London I was satisfied that unlike with the camera, it performed well - you will need a micro SD memory card to store one album or more though.

Battery life
The battery life is excellent, although, not as good as the Nokia 1616, which, will run for over a week with heavy usage! This phone will last a week with light use, but as soon as you make a few calls and use the MP3 player you'll more than likely half that time - still very good though.

It has WAP so you can technically use the internet - if you want the internet though, you shouldn't really be looking at this phone - it's suffice for checking email in an emergency.
Bluetooth is included, unlike on the Nokia 1616.
Another plus point for the Nokia is that it features both the thin needle charger port (standard on a lot of modern Nokias) and the new micro-usb connector for transferring files - as noted below in the comments section you cannot charge the device through micro-usb.

If you're looking for a phone that's easy to use, has good battery and a nice addition of an MP3 player, the C1-01 is definitely worth checking out. If you think that bluetooth, MP3 player and a terrible VGA camera will be lost on you, have a look at the Nokia 1616.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too sensitive to shave with, 18 Oct. 2011
The original King of Shaves razor had affordable blades, a nice design, and gave a good shave; it was let down by the lack of a trimmer for hard to reach areas (like under the nose) and the closeness of the shave, which isn't as good as some rivals.

I personally suffer from very sensitive skin and am keen to try out new razors: this led me to the new sensitive version.

On unpacking the razor, you'll struggle to see much difference from the original; the skin pre-tensioner (white pad underneath the blade) is bigger, and - if you believe the marketing hype on the packet - this carefully lifts the hairs to avoid cuts! Sounds perfect!

My experience was less than perfect, in fact, rather fraught with frustration. The razor was too sensitive which meant I struggled to achieve a close shave; I found myself going over the same patches over and over again (not ideal if you have sensitive skin!) and in the end, I actually just used my old Gillette Fusion to finish the job.

It's quite hard to review a razor as it will probably work better for some than others - I should note that I haven't tried it with shaving oils - which are supposed to be a good alternative to foams. If you don't have sensitive skin, definitely there are better razors out there such as the Merkur double edged razors.

For now though, I'll be sticking to the original - certainly, if you've had a good experience with the un-sensitive version, there's no need to 'upgrade'.
