Nokia 2690 Review


Even though it has been tagged as a low-budget handset, Nokia 2690 is one of those phones that seem to be subsidized for what they have to offer. Boasting lots of features that are usually included in medium ranged mobile phones, Nokia 2690 is also...

Besides the low price, the candybar includes lots of features that almost qualify it for the mid-budget line-up: Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support, microUSB port, microSD memory card slot. I was also pleased with the battery's autonomy and sound quality...

I think the only drawback of the device is the embedded camera, but even that cannot downrate the device too much as it's not the main attraction of the phone. It seems that Nokia didn't fail with this handset, as it offers even more than you could...

Billed as an "entertainment device", the Nokia 2690 has an MP3 player and FM radio, plus a microSD slot that supports cards up to 8GB and a 3.5mm audio socket.

Nokia has been introducing new models periodically. The new Nokia 2690 is a low-budget GSM phone. This Candy Bar mobile comes with a great list of features. The handset is pocket friendly weighing somewhere under 81 grams.

Please suggest how to do uninterrupted continuous voice recording in voice recorder. Default setting stops after 1 hr.

Very nice looking and impressive.At last I have a quad band phone I can use when I go on a long haul flight holiday

Quite complicated for an old fogie.Limit what you do and get used to it and it is fine.It will be sometime before I can use everything ,but I soon learned to call and text

well lit screen therefore easily read. Hand-book instructions easy to understand. Calls easy to receive and to make, also texting easy and again instructions easily read

Being disabled I find some of the controls a bit "finicky" But for someone with better dexterity this may not be a problem
