“Hot pink banter!”

Prosee review

Conssee review

I am really not that interested in owning the latest fancy mobile phone. For me a phone just needs to be functional and work well when I need it! However I had owned my Motorola flip phone for several years and it was beginning to really show its age! I have a contract with Vodafone (not...

“Right For Me”

published 05/02/2012

Proeasy to use, good battery life

Conskeys small

I’m no phone expert – I’m somewhere comfortably in the middle in the scale between phone novice and phone pro. Therefore, my needs from a mobile phone are not as basic as some nor as advanced as others. When I purchased my most recent phone a couple of years ago I had fairly simple requirements –...

The Nokia C3 is your basic issue smartphone.

When my old Samsung U600 got on my nerves too much and even broke, I decided to buy a new phone. I wanted one that was pink, and a standard phone rather than a flip phone as my 22 month old daughter loves to play with my mobile and I didn't want her making calls etc. like with my Samsung! I came...

ConsWould have been great on the android system.

The shape of this phone is nice and from a distance it looks like the blackberry mobiles that are on the market, it fits into your hand nicely but as the back is very smooth it very easily drops out of your hand from time to time. the size of it is manageable but sometimes a bit top heavy, its...

ProAmazing battery life, looks like a Blackberry

ConsNeeds more features

I have had my Nokia C3 for around 6 months. People always mistake it for a blackberry so if you're someone who wants a cheap looking version of the Blackberry I would definitely recommend this. The keypad is in the same format as a blackberry and the talk time is amazing! Like all Nokia's the...

After losing a £140 touch screen Nokia phone whilst at university i started looking online for a reasonably priced phone that wouldn't be as painful to replace if I lost it!
