The features are nothing to write home about – even on a postcard

Nokia 3720 Classic Review


With all the latest fancy smartphones these days that do just about everything except for washing the dishes, we need to now and again come back down to earth and check out the more basic/entry-level phones. Nokia has provided us with...

Simple stylish design ; Robust build (water, dust and shock resistant) ; Clear display ; Flash for the camera ; Good call sound quality

Quite complicated for an entry level phone ; Camera quality is quite poor ; No dedicated camera button ; USB cable not provided in box ; No 3G

I did find myself looking at a few apps thinking that some of the features could really confuse an absolute mobile phone newbie. But, over all, this is a good entry level phone from Nokia.

Nokia 3720 classic review: Handle without care


The Nokia 3720 classic is putting on its boots, pulling on its anorak, slinging its rucksack over its shoulder and striding out into the unfriendliest of environments: water, dust, tough ground…you name it, this device promises to shrug it off...

Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 2.2" 16M-color QVGA display of excellent sunlight legibility ; 2 megapixel camera, autofocus and LED flash ; VGA video recording at 15fps ; S40 user interface, 6th edition ; Stereo FM radio with RDS ; Bluetooth (with...

No 3G ; No dedicated camera shutter key ; No smart dialing ; No multi-tasking ; No office document viewer ; No lens protection ; Memory card slot under the battery ; No USB cable in the retail box

Well, the Finns have finally put that right and they seem to have a promising candidate on their hands for those who care less about features and even less about the weather. So, if you're after a handset that can survive the elements, get ready to...

Nokia 3720: Tonka tough


Whether you're a rugged outdoors type with calloused hands from weekend rock-climbing, or whether you're just a doofus who regularly drops your phone in the loo, Nokia's latest announcement could be for you.

Nokia 3720 classic Review


The Nokia 3720 classic is one of those handsets that you can torture in any way imaginable and yet, they won´t leave you high and dry. Excellent companion for everyone involved in heavy physical activities, sports or just cannot treat their cell phones...

Nokia 3720 Classic


We got a glimpse of the 3720 a few days ago with a couple of Nokia teaser videos which show the handset being kicked about and then used as a golf ball in the rain. So, we feel that it should probably survive the odd bit of water and being dropped onto...

Nokia 3720 Review


Additional add-ons include Nokia Maps, which comes pre-loaded on the 1 GB microSD memory card, and the large and bright 2.2" display is perfect for following the route even in unfamiliar terrain. The Nokia 3720 classic is expected to hit the shelves...
