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 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...

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 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...
