The screen is clear, although fairly low resolution (which you expect with a budget handset). The menu is easy to navigate and you get access to a small number of apps. Facebook comes preinstalled so is easy to set up, and you can send/receive email as well.
The predictive text feature is good, and having a camera is a nice bonus at this price.
You can use this as a music player, but theres no volume rockers on the side of the phone so you can't easily adjust the volume.
If you're not fused about loads and loads of apps and just want a simple, classic, handset to talk, text and a bit of internet access, then this is a really good options.
This phone is snappy in its operation (unlike the Nokia 206), does everything you need in a very basic and fluid way (Twitter, Facebook, Mail etc) and should work in all the world because it's quad-band. The 206 which I tried before did not run on Three, but this one worked beautifully with Three (it wasn't as trivial to get data working on it though).
The camera on the phone is quite decent too and although a bit grainy and with some purple bleeding on certain conditions, it's quick and a micoSD card (which you can change to convenience!) can store a truckload of photos.
Music playing was also incredibly painless. I threw a bunch of folders in the microSD card which had music, and the in-built player recognized them all instantaneously. No messing about with software, no pain. Drawback: volume isn't too great on this device, I have very good headphones which work great and with loud volume on all devices, but even when I put this to maximum, it was still a little bit low. I mean, I heard everything fine because my headphones block outside noise, but it seemed like a pretty low top level.
Al this with a fantastic battery life. The phone has been on for a week and it only munched one bar of the battery indicator!!
It took some used to type things again with a numeric keypad, but it also made me realize how much I miss a physical keyboard. Touchscreens are just not accurate and they end up being cumbersome and annoying.
The only feature that didn't seem to work was Whatsapp, which I was really looking forward to use. After updating to the latest version of the app, it kept asking to update and wouldn't run.Read more ›
Fits in your pocket
Familiar Nokia menu layout
Traditional tactile keyboard
HD Voice (where supported)
Extras that are actually useful (to this user) and are used:
Converter for various units of measurement
Diary and Alarm clock
Takes a standard mini SIM and also a micro SIM with a suitable converter.
Size is close to legacy phone sizes.
Supports MP3, MP4 as well as AAC in media (well, it recognises these in ringing tones at least.)
Setting up MMS and the Internet can be complex.
If a video camera is important, note that it is only 320 x 240 pixels max. (Camera is 1536 x 2048)
On the homescreen, the keyboard is locked very quickly after use and can only be kept open if an end time is typed in. Irritating because it is clock time rather than say, 5, 30 mins or an hour later.
- If one wants to keep the phone unlocked, select MENU or another screen.
In Settings>Display>Homescreen>Personalise View, If one selects a completely empty HOMESCREEN, it reverts to the FULL homescreen(!) The best 'minimalist' display is to select 'empty' for all the top three positions and use the clock in the lowest position on the screen. The homescreen displays the profile name permanently.
Many reviews suggest there is a problem with BATTERY life. Here are few hints to condition the battery and prolong uptime:
1. EDIT - Update. In my original submission, I made an error on battery charging times. I previously mentioned a long charge. After some research, I now know that the figures I provided were incorrect.Read more ›
I got this as an upgrade from the very basic Nokia 100 phone a couple of days ago and can already say with conviction that it is very good, certainly for its price.
It is packed with many semi-smart features such as social media applications and the ability for emails to be forwarded with a notification system for both these respective traits.
I did not buy this for the camera although that is an added bonus.
The S40 operating system allows plenty of customization of the phone and is certainly simple and easy to use.
The screen is large, not touch screen large, but this is to accommodate for the comfortably sized alphanumeric keypad.
All in all a good phone for the price and certainly good as a main phone, not just a second phone. And with a built in FM radio!
PS: this phone does have threaded texting, along with sent and received folders; the threaded texting is found under conversations.
