a very simple and clean design for the minimalist

i saw the reviews here and some of those were somewhat unjustified. i have been using the phone for 2 years now and it has served me very well indeed. scratching, lost buttons, and what have u, those problems do not appear for me.

what is so good about the phone is the fact that it serves the basic functions of a phone without the fuss. This phone is slim and is aesthetically pleasing, and everytime you take it out, people will say "thats a neat slim phone." 0.94 cm or 0.37 inches is slim indeed.

the camera may be lousy, but if you want a good picture, get yourself a digital camera. no phone until now has got a decent camera if you ask me.

the battery can last me 1-2 days(around 35hours) if i use it often, or 2-3 days(around 60hours) if i don't.


  • slim
  • aesthetically appealing
  • decent battery life


  • poor camera

Solid and Stylish

This phone serves well for voice calls, sms, and looking good when pooling out your phone!
If you need more functionality than that, this phone is not for you.
I have been using this phone for 2 years and have had no issues with it.
Dropped it several times, but the phone is still working well. 


  • Stylish
  • Good Sound Quality
  • Locks keypad when not in use


  • Proprietary Nokia connector for charger

I liked this phone at first, and the features were quite neat. But after some time it started getting scratched easily and I barely used it. The coating (especially the silver-ish parts) have all be scratched off and now the white plastic shows and it looks horrible. The amazing thing is that I barely used it compared to other people, so yeah its got a short life span. My friend has the same phone and his lasted only a year and a half before a big part of the keys ended up missing so he ended up throwing it away.Camera is one of the worst I've ever seen. It performs horribly at night and in order to get a "somewhat" clear picture you'll need to be outside on a sunny in order to prevent yourself from ending up with a picture full of noise and grain. The flash is good but its useless when you still end up with a horrible picture at night. Its good a good design and very enjoyable at first. My friends loved it when I first got it, but the condition that it is currently in is too horrible and is in no condition to be sold because they buyer will probably laugh his ass off when he sees it. Definitely not recommended =/ Sorry nokia but after this phone I've given up on you.


  • A somewhat good interface
  • Clear Calls
  • Strong Flash
  • Nice Music Player


  • Numerical keys are scratched and break easily after some time
  • Camera Is Horrible
  • Only 1GB Built-in Memory

Very bad phone! There is a hole now between the parts after 1 week of usage. Weak camera, no radio, unbalanced weight. The worst phone ever. I am so disappointed and will have to change it when I save more money! 
And it doesn't look good because the hair and dust go in the holes around screen and in the holes in the phones body. Imagine you take it out from your pans, and there are hair stuck to it. Embarrassing!
