My Samsung Tocco and I departed company a few weeks ago as it decided it just didn't want to work anymore! This was one of the more expensive phones on the market at present, but considering it gave up the ghost after just 3 months I decided I would downgrade to a cheaper, but more reliable phone. I scoured the catalogue and decided on the Nokia 3600 slide phone.~The phone Itself~
The Nokia 3600 slide has many integrated features which are listed below:-
Size and Weight Converter
Calculator and Calendar
Voice Recorder/FM Radio/Music Player
The phone comes complete with battery, charger, usb lead and headphones. It is available to buy in three different colours - these are black, a light metallica 'girly' pink and a dark red/black colour. The phones all cost the same, no matter which colour you choose.The Nokia 3600 generally costs between £110.00 and £135.00 at present on pay as you go, depending on which network you have it on. I got mine on offer for £109.00 from a catalogue on Orange network, so its worth looking around the latest offers & you may be able to grab yourself a bargain!
The picture quality when taking stills and videos is a lot better than I thought it would be. When you first go to take a photo, the screen looks rather fuzzy, but once the photo is taken it is put into focus and the picture quality is actually rather good. The sound quality both with calls and listening to music is excellent.I expected the battery to last longer than it did. I'm not one who uses the phone all day every day. A couple of phone calls and a few text messages a day is generally all i use, and even with this little usage, the battery only lasted between 3-4 days before it needed re-charging. The battery only takes a couple of hours to charge to full though.
The dimensions of the phone are as follows: length 3.75" x 1.75". This is just the right size for me. Not too small so you can't see the keys or screen properly, but small enough to fit nicely into the handbag. Its quite light too and I have already dropped it a couple of times and the phone has stood firm, so its pretty robust too!!Overall I am pretty impressed with this phone. It has just the right amount of features within the phone to keep me impressed and it does everything I need to for a pretty good price. The overall look of the phone doesn't overly impress me. For a phone that costs over £100, it has almost a cheap look to it and the buttons feel a bit cheap too which I wasn't impressed with.
Apart from the cheap look, I really like this phone. Im my opinion you can't beat Nokia when it comes to reliability and simplicity of use. Their phones are easy to navigate around and features and easy to use. There are no complications with a phone such as this. What you see is what you get. The games are great fun and calls are easy to make and receive with good sound quality.I recommend this phone to anyone who likes a few added features more than you would get on a basic phone, but without over complicating things. Bright, fun and easy to use. A great little phone.
