Nokia 3120 Classic review


We take a break from pawing Nokia's all conquering Nseries smarties, to review the manufacturer's latest 3G candybar foot soldier, the 3120 Classic. Is it another Finnish mid-range vintage?

Slender, lightweight and pocket-friendly ; Ultra user-friendly and highly customisable homescreen ; 3G download speeds ; Capable music player and FM radio

Lack of autofocus on camera ; Not supplied with stereo headset or USB cable

A reliable, sleek but solid 3G candybar that does exactly was it says on the tin with a minimum of fuss and fanfare.

Nokia 3120 Classic


Stylish design at an affordable price

Slim and sleek design, 3G-capable, large screen, well=designed keypad, intuitive user interface, FM radio

2.5mm headphone jack, included headset only has one earpiece, no microSD card included

The 3120 Classic is an ideal handset for its asking price. An excellent design, an intuitive user interface and a reasonable features list make this a great choice for many people.

Nokia 3120 classic review: Mid-range fighter


Even if every little Nokia wants to be an N95 when it grows up, most of them end up a decent looking gadget with a neat little perk here and there to top the good old calling and texting. Nokia 3120 classic is just another one of them mixed by the...

2" 16M-color QVGA display ; 2 megapixel camera with LED flash ; S40 user interface ; Compact and lightweight ; Quad-band GSM support ; 3G network support, video-call ; Bluetooth and USB connectivity ; Stereo FM radio ; microSD card slot, microSDHC...

Slow camera and unimpressive image quality ; Uncomfortable battery cover latch ; Weak backlighting ; Memory card slot under the battery cover

Nokia 3120 classic is going for a piece of the midrange action and it's getting a run for its money both inside the Nokia family and from competing manufacturers. Let's have a quick look at some of the potentially bitter rivalries shaping up. It's a...

Nokia 3120 classic


The budget 3120 classic packs a decent set of features without compromising on looks.

Stylish looks ; MicroSD expansion card slot ; Front-facing VGA camera for video calls via 3G ; Bluetooth ; Good battery life

Mediocre camera ; No bundled data cable

Nokia 3120 Classic


The Nokia 3120 classic offers no-nonsense functionality and features familiar to the Nokia brand. Video calls, web browsing, music downloads and email are easy and intuitive on this slim and colorful 3G device.

Image quality is well… average, in favourable weather decent images can produced, sharp enough, with fairly good colour rendering. Indoor photos still have that gleaming aura surrounding it, and are especially noticeable with fluorescent lights. The...

Nokia 3120 Classic Review- What you see is not what you get


3120 Classic has an excellent two-inch screen with a clear and easy to read high resolution display. Mind you, its LCD is prone to finger prints and it's not exactly scratch proof. On the plus side, due to its clearness, it can double as an emergency...
