Super Appealling Due To Its Lack Of Appeal

AdvantagesGreat, easy to use entry level phone for emergency, short term or overseas use

DisadvantagesNo fancy technology like a camera or a music player

"...but this is the only Nokia model I've had. Even so, I took to it like a duck to water, and even after an absence of 18 months, my fingers were intuitively navigating to silent mode and the alarm without a second thought. If you've read my review of the Kubik Evo MP3 player, you'll know how frustrating I find it when something is unintuitive, and I'm happy to say this is in no way like that annoying little thing. Another brilliant, if perhaps not ..." Read review

At last, less is more!

Advantagessimple, robust, efficient

Disadvantagesbasic, no extravagent features

"...user-friendly and robust offering from Nokia that is likely to be ranged as both a contract and PAYT handset on most mobile networks. It is a dependable device with little complexity that can often cause software glitches on fancier devices when they are launched by the manufacturers. The seamless keypad also protects the device from dust. It is a quad-band device which means it can be used world wide (exluding Japan) meaning great value for ..." Read review

As if the 3210 has a bastard love child

AdvantagesIt has a torch and is a phone

DisadvantagesUgly as sin, Grey, Has alzheiners

" **THE LOOK** The Nokia 1208 is not the greatest looking phone on the market. Its not surprising as its has clearly been designed by soemone who lacks any immagination, who most likely lives alone. The phone has a truely blightful two-tone cover, although both tones are grey. It is as if it were designed int he mid-80's and Nokia thought it would look retro...they were mistaken. The phone feels so light and cheap it should be feeled with sweets. ..." Read review

Nokia 1208

Advantagesgreat value for money, ease of use, excellent battery life.

Disadvantagespredictive text dictionary quite poor. lack of bluetooth a problem.

"After losing my old slightly more high tech phone i decided to buy a cheap and cheerful phone out of the supermarket to tide me over for a few weeks until i raised the funds to buy something better. That was nearly 6 months ago and i am still using this phone, simply because it works perfectly well as a mobile phone. It has all the standard features that are expected of any mobile ( alarm clock, backlit colour screen, handsfree etc.) plus several ..." Read review

Simplicity, thy name is Nokia.

AdvantagesSimple, user-friendly, durable, reliabe, good sound quality.

DisadvantagesNone of the latest features

"If you're not looking for fancy-ass features like a camera, bluetooth, picture messaging, mass storage, the latest tones, maps, and an mp3 player, and you want your phone to make calls and send texts, this is for you. It is incredibly user friendly, (an excellent phone for the older generation) has 4 fairly addictive but simple games, and is very reliable and durable. As something of a luddite in regard to mobile technology, I consider this the best ..." Read review

Nokia 1208 Mobile-Brilliant Value Phone

Advantagescheap,solid design,good value

Disadvantagesless features if after more, not a flip phone for those who want that.

"...1208 Review== I recentley brought the Nokia 1208 mobile phone on pay as you go format. Now I managed to purchase this phone for just £5 with a £5 top up card for credit. Very resonable sounding phone, huh? And this phone has been sold at that price as well as other nearly as cheap prices online-its one of the cheapest phones I have come across on the internet. But the phone could be really cheap but does it work good for that price, is it truley ..." Read review

Nokia 1208 - useless phone!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesWhat use is a phone that won't receive calls?

"...THAT'S another story!!!) He purchased the Nokia 1208 from Tesco Mobile on Pay as You Go, for £17.97. It was good deal, if you top up by £15 they will triple it to £45. Well done Tesco. Anyway back to the phone review, it has the following 'features' - Screen 65k Colour CSTN Screen (96 x 68 Pixels) Large Digital Clock Wallpaper, Animated Screensavers, Jumbo Font Dual Band (GSM 900 & GSM 1800) 4 Mbytes Memory, 7 Hours Talk Time 365 Hours Standby One ..."

AdvantagesVery small and simple. If it falls it wont break.

You won't beat this

AdvantagesValue for money, durable, simplicity

DisadvantagesUsual annoying Nokia ring tones

"Ok, so the Nokia 1208 does not have a camera or radio or anything fancy for that matter. But the 1208 does come unlocked so you can swap and change sim cards like the wind. Yes, this cheap Nokia is ready built do you to do what you like with it. It has the usual Nokia theme to it, has all the annoying ringtones and is well-made and strong. The screen is easy to read too. Weighing in at 77g it is not heavy to carry around. The best place to buy ..." Read review

Quick review of Nokia 1208

"This phone is perfect for someone who wants nothing fancy - it does only what a phone needs to do! It texts, calls and saves numbers. what more could you want? battery life is good, but the phone can look a little clumsy when compared to fancier models.

A budget phone with an extraordinary battery life

AdvantagesBattery life, games, alarm, torch facility, calculator

DisadvantagesNo camera or radio (but remember it's cheap)

"...about 10 times before this Nokia 1208 requires a charge so battery life is amongst the best I have kown. For me this is a perfect holiday phone or one to have as a backup. This is a phone which if you lost, you wouldn't break into a sweat about. It a simple phone that is ideal for young kids or elderly aswell. If you need a backup phone and want something cheap that delivers then this is a good choice. ..." Read review
