This designer handset measures just 190mm x 120mm x 12 mm compatible size and it only weighs 380g (compare that to carting a laptop around!). Games and HD videos are superb on the 7-inch 600 x1024 pixels screen and the 512Mb RAM plus up to 32Gb storage means the Samsung Galaxy Tab never feels underpowered.

Full Review of Nokia 6303i Classic mobile Phone

Category : Mobile Phones, Nokia

large6303classicsilverAnother mobile from Nokia targeted towards entry level users, the Nokia 6303i Classic is a conventional “candy bar” shaped handset which provides a surprising range of features. The stainless steel bevelled casing looks and feels good, additionally it’s a simple handset to use with one hand. Standard features include a 3.1 megapixel camera, web browser, music player, video player and messaging services, essentially the 6303 offers all the features and services mobile phone users need. The Nokia 6303i is essentially an upgraded version of the Nokia 6300 with additional memory, features, and greater customisation using the range of new coloured casings.

The 2.2 inch display is a TFT type with 240 x 320 pixels resolution and supports up to 16 million colours. Even with full alphanumeric keypad below, the overall dimensions are still just 108.8mm x 46.2mm x 11.7 mm, with a weight of just 96 grams. Connectivity options are limited to the 2G network with GPRS and EDGE, no 3G or WLAN but thats only to be expected given the price range of this model. USB and Bluetooth are both supported however, so overall the the Nokia 6303i Classic scores well in connectivity stakes for this level of pricing.

The Nokia 6303i classic is a low end device that does not offer memory intensive gaming facilities so the on-board memory of 55 MB and external memory of 2Gb with microSD card included is quite sufficient (if necessary even this can be upgraded to 8Gb if required). The camera is decent with 3.2 megapixels, LED flash, video recording at 8 frames per second and auto focus. The music player on the Nokia 6303i classic offers a good music listening experience and supports all popular file types such as MP3, WAV, eAAC+, and WMA.

Advantages:Great quality stainless steel handset seems built to last and feels good to hold, easy to use and get familiar with main features, good battery life, decent camera for the price, lots of features for a budget mobile phone.

Disadvantages: Some users feel the loudspeaker could use a bit more volume, no 3G , no touch screen display, some users felt keyboard was slightly too small while others had no problems – perhaps not the best handset for those with podgy fingers!

In the main, Nokia has got another winner on it’s hands in their budget mobile phone range. This handset, although targeted at the entry level users, has many of the features associated with much higher end products so will surprise and delight many budget conscious phone users! Currently the best offers on the Nokia 6303i Classic are to be found with o2 and Vodafone.

Nokia E5 Mobile Phone Review

Category : Mobile Phones, Nokia

largenokiae5blackThe Nokia E5 is a feature packed smart phone loaded with 3G and WiFi technologies. A direct competitor to Blackberry products such as the BlackBerry Curve , this 3G Smart-phone however persists in using the outdated Symbian operating system (despite the long running industry rumours of Nokia switching to the superior Android operating system). . The saving grace of the E5 is the inclusion of a full QWERTY keyboard and the user friendly navigation controls which has become something of a Nokia trademark.

In terms of features, this mobile phone has everything you could possibly need. Built in music player, video recording and playback, five megapixel digital camera, fully functioning Web browser, Multimedia Messaging, Bluetooth and WiFi, Vlingo speech-to-text , pre-installed applications for social networking via Facebook and similar, Ovi Maps with free turn-by-turn navigation, Quad Band reception and much more!

The handset features a 2.4 inch TFT screen (up to 256,000 colours and resolution of 320 pixels x 240 pixels) above a full qwerty keyboard and classic Nokia 5 way navigation key. Available in 5 different casing colours ( white, carbon black, silver grey, copper and sky blue) which nicely highlight the chrome effect accents. Measuring 11.5cm x 5.89cm x 1.28cm, the E5 is reasonably compact, though certainly not the smallest phone on the market. It does however feel substantial to hold with a reassuring solid feel.

Lack of touchscreen means users require keyboard for functions such as zoom and navigation, making transitions slower and clunkier than Android powered mobile phones such as the HTC Desire or Motorola Milestone. However the customisation features available on the home screens means the E5 beats the iPhone set up by some margin!

Advantages: Fantastic Qwerty keyboard enables fast typing for texting/emails etc, sturdy design, excellent battery life, huge choice of connectivity options. 3.5mm audio jack allows easy upgrading of standard headphones, powerful speaker with good clarity

Disadvantages:
Screen not brilliant – difficult to read in direct sunlight and 320 pixels x 240 pixels is simply not enough nowadays, ancient Symbian operating system is feeling a bit outdated, Camera is just adequate – should really be better in this class. Headphones included in retail pack are poor.

The Nokia E5 is another handset from Nokia targeting Blackberry (much like the C3), apart from the rather low tech screen, it does a good job and the superb qwerty keyboard alone will certainly win a few customers from the more expensive Blackberry Curve and similar products. Available on T-mobile, o2, Orange and Vodafone
