Nokia 8210 is in my opinion a baby nokia 402. The layout is nearly identical and the features only differ slightly, the only differneces in the phone setup are that you get vibrating alert and voice activated dialing.
It looks quite good and you can change the covers on it, I think this is a good feature as you can make a common phone look personal. This is the strong point of most nokia phones, the ability to "express" yourself using apdatly named "express-on" covers.
A good phone book that is easy to access and look up various names. You can have voice dialling and a vibrating alert when someone calls you. This is a very good feature when you want to be more discrete! You can store 100 names/numbers and search them via the inbuilt facility. Also you can display the phone book either by name or number.
Messages are a good feature and the Nokia phone harnesses the power of SMS with it predictive text input system. Very good and super slick menu scrolling. As with all nokia phones the 8210 does not let you down, and you can easily type your message, even though the keys are tiny.
Possibily people with large hands may have problems typing without making a mistake.
Tones- you get loads as usual and you can make your own and have different logos on the front of your phone. The logo is 96x150 pixels, so you can be quite imaginative. Do not get dirty though! Oi Oi!
Games – Snake, the eviliste game in the planet, complete with bleepy nosied that put you in to a sleepy trance!
Overall this is a quality phone and the size should be your reason for buying it!
