Good: It allows you to make phone calls and text. Oh and it has internet however very slow!
Comment: I took out a Nokia 6700 Classic on an 18 month contact with T Mobile. I had 3 faults with it. The screen had gone all blurry not allowing my to see what I was doin on my phone, and it often turned itself off! However I got a fresh new one all excited......however NO, same issue again. Nokia need to lookin into this and speaking to friends who have this say same fault occured! This has the potential to be a decent phone however too many fault occured! I would strongly reccomend not buying this AT ALL!!!
Bad: I had two as part of a contract - because they kept developing faults
Comment: The first one, the backlight on the screen failed, making it impossible to read and virtually impossible to use. This was replaced with the same - 6700 - and this developed the most trying fault with voicemail. I would get a voicemail, the text message to tell me about it, listen to the message, delete it and the text and it would continue to advise me of this 'phantom' message quite randomly at any time of day or NIGHT! It was proved to be the handset when I reverted to my previous handset.
Definitely do not want another!
Good: It feels very solid and of high quality, thanks to the stainless steel casing and has a good quality camera.
Bad: It may not have te features of the latest smaertphones but it does the job excellently with great style.
Good: The HD Ready screen
Bad: Everything else!!
Comment: Thankfully i got this phone out on contract so the handset was free, but unfortunately as i'd never heard of it before and there wasnt another decent handset out at the time i agreed to have it!
The memory on this phone is terrible as goes the speed of browsing through applications. It does allow you to put in a memory card but that still doesnt make much of a difference. The camera is actually pretty decent for a 5mp and as its somehow got a HD Live screen the quality is really crisp, which is why for this you'll definately need to invest in a memory card.
Its got Nokia Maps on it which is a plus, but it never seemed to work for me!!! Also it doesnt support wi-fi, which isnt a bother on this phone as the screen is really small compared to the products Nokia makes now, so you wouldnt be able to watch anyline online without interferance or struggling!
If you want a basic phone to make texts and calls then maybe i would recommend this phone but for anything else its a no-no!!!
Good: LOOKS AND FEELS
