Nokia 3100


The first question parents need to ask before buying a mobile phone for their child is whether camera phones are banned at school. Headteachers all over the country have banned camera phones and some councils have issued authority-wide bans. Teachers'...

Could be all the phone you need and want

If you stop to think about how much you actually need in a phone, you may start dispensing with quad band, MP3 players and cameras in favour of a handset that is easy to use, has a decent battery life and above all, fits in your pocket. The Nokia 3100...

Nokia 3100 Review


As soon as I saw this small phone I liked it straight away, I liked the size and I liked the design. I especially liked the glow in the dark covers. I think that Nokia has aimed this phone at the younger generation but I think that this is one handset...

Overall I really liked this phone. It was easy to use, easy to text on and very noticeable when you received a call. If someone is looking for a fun basic handset that is just going to be used for calling and texting then this could well be the model....

The phone has simple design, which provokes discrepant sensations to almost everyone. Somebody likes the design, but when the backlight turns on they hold it back. Somebody twist the phone in hands indifferently and the eyes light up together with the...

The backlight is very bright, it is of white color and the keys œare merged when it is on. The keyboard is made of rubber; the keys are soft by touch. The keys are located as groups, but they are rather pleasant to work with. The navigation key is...

Good speakerphone, Good keypad, Pretty good battery life

The design could be stronger

A good basic phone with no bells and whistle but it's good at being a cell phone.

Look wise, you may think the Nokia 3100 looks somewhat like the 2100, and you're right. In many ways externally it does, but on the inside you will find things like a colour screen, MMS, Java games and applications, and even animated screen savers. The...

A great phone for the bargain, but don't expect all of the perks


I love Nokia brick phones. I love the lack of moving parts and I love the durability of bricks. I have dropped this thing countless times, once out of a moving car, and it still functions perfectly. And for the price I got it at (free) it was the phone...

I do not plan to compare Nokia versus ASUS, it just so happened that other than my ASUS V80, I'm using Nokia 3100. Actually, we have three of this model in out family. First word to describe this phone - cute. Second - useful. This handset gives you...
