Full Review Nokia 1800 with Latest Deals

Category : Mobile Phones, Nokia

large1800The Nokia 1800 is available in four colours (blue colour, red, silver grey and black) in a solid “candy bar” type casing measuring 10.7cm x 4.5cm x 1.53cm and weighs just 78.5 grams. With a 1.8 inch TFT colour screen and the typical Nokia navigation controls below along with call buttons and alphanumeric keypad.

The 1800 is a basic mobile phone, for those who do not require all the bells and whistles (which this type of customer would probably never use anyway). A refreshingly simple product, easy to use and set up, it does what it “says on the tin”, no more, no less. despite this elegant simplicity, the Nokia 1800 has many useful basic features and functions, such as phone book for storing contact names and numbers, calendar, clock, alarm, SMS messaging, FM radio and LED flash light (why don’t other phones have this simple yet extremely useful feature?). The 1800 also supports MP3 ringtones and comes with 32-polyphonic ringtones pre loaded. There is also the option to personalise the handset with a range of covers.


Advantages:
Usual functional and intuitive Nokia navigation, decent headset included in retail pack, useful LED torch which would work well in emergency situations, good reception even in rural areas, cheap

Disadvantages: No camera, no internet data connectivity, no email, lack of gimmicky features may put some people off! – no bragging rights, the sleek looks mean the casing design can be a bit slippery to hold!

If you just want a mobile phone for making/receiving calls and some text messaging, the Nokia 1800 has much to commend it. Extremely easy to use with no complicated menu functions nor tons of high tech features which you will never use! With the battery providing 528 hours standby time (helped no doubt by the distinct lack of power sapping features) this would also be a great handset for emergency use whilst driving/travelling for instance. The retail pack includes a Nokia Compact Charger, Stereo Headset and a useful User guide. Most users would have this phone set up and ready to use in seconds (after battery is fully charged). The Nokia 1800 has a high satisfaction rating from customers with very little negative feedback at all – all in all, a budget mobile phone with all the basic features wrapped up in a nice looking handset, with easy to read screen, simple to use navigation and good reliability. Perhaps the best basic handset on the market right now.

Available free with contract from T-mobile, Orange, and Vodafone. Or for less than £10 on pay-as-you-go!
