Nokia 3250 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

We're not quite sure we'd dump our iPod for this phone, but it certainly got us thinking about it

Lots of memory; nice styling; good sound quality

Music software isn’t the best; quite a bulky handset

A good music mobile, but the music operating system isn’t up to the quality of Sony Ericsson’s Walkman offerings.

The 3250 is definitely innovative, but is it easy to use?

Nokia 3250 review

 

It twists and turns, and it's finished in piano black. But has Nokia's MP3 smartphone got what it takes to rival Sony Ericsson's rocking Walkman models?

Put this up against the W800i and it’s a tough call: if you want to show off, pick the 3250 for its twisty-turny powers. Is size your priority? Plump for the tried-and-tested Sony Ericsson.

Looks great. Easy twist actions. Excellent smartphone features

Cumbersome joystick. Bit of a porker

Consumers have skeptic opinion on all kinds of releases of already existing and known phones for quite a long time. The majority thinks that releasing of slightly redesigned version looks like an attempt to sell old product in new wrapping. Motorola's...

Expert Review

 

As a media player and camera, the 3250 is a pretty good device, but its phone functionality leaves a little to be desired thanks to an awkward and slightly sluggish interface.

MP3 functionality is well implemented, 512MB card included

Irritating thumbstick, Quite slow
