Nokia 3110 Classic Review
Finally, I was looking forward to buying this phone for at least one person! Sister lost her cell phone while she was in Chennai, and voila, a perfect chance to persuade somebody to buy this baby. The budget was small, but just enough to get this superb phone. And I have got to say, this has got to be the best decision I made [for somebody] on a mobile phone so far. Preview The Nokia 3110 Classic is a budget phone made for the masses. It features a 1.3 mega-pixel camera and expandable memory, while keeping the cost in mind. Looks Quite average considering that bulky is so not the fashion these days. Then again, you can’t expect sleek sexy looks from Nokia at this price range. The display does look rich though with some great themes from Nokia, so you won’t be entirely disappointed. Performance The keys are quite big, making it easy for typing. Or so it seems actually. Once you get down to the typing, you’ll realize that the keys are too hard, especially the 4, 5 and 6 keys. It might loosen up after constant use though, but don’t count on it. Call drops did occur rarely. Camera & Music The camera is 1.3 mega-pixels with no flash. The image quality is pretty average even in daylight. Shutter freaks, keep away please. But for a budget phone, 1.3 MP is really good! For a small budget phone, it features the best loudspeaker that I have ever come across. The sound quality is very good and you will not be embarrassed playing it out to an audience. The earphones are pretty good too. The phone can play back mp3, AAC, and a few other formats besides having a visual-radio, making it a real treat. However, if you want to make extensive use of either features, you will HAVE to pick up a memory card because the in-built 9 MB is hardly enough for anything. Else, you will have to settle with low bit-rate AAC music. Price Finally, this is where the phone thrashes competition (yes, it thrashes them and not just give them a beating). Priced at Rs.4,900/-, this is a real steal. Final words An excellent small budget phone. Feature packed. Just don’t forget to pick up a memory card if you want to make good use of the camera and music player.
