I wanted: Nokia 7610, but it would have been 129.99 and I never pay for handsets on principle

I got: Sony Ericsson K700i + Bluetooth headset for free

Was this a good choice? The Nokia is prettier and I love Nokia menus but this one had more features and was free, even if its a bit manly.

Asher/anyone- how shit is my phone?

Asher is totally predjudiced against Nokias.

I don't know much about your actual phone. :) Looked it up and it seems to get pretty decent reviews though.

I likes a Nokia- I only really use mobiles for text messages and the odd phone call. I never game, mail or go on the net so nokia suits me quite well. I have no idea what bluetooth or fileshare or MP3 really are (just vague notions). Couldnt care less about the camera- which on my current samsung seems included purely to take pictures of the inside of myhandbag.

The reviews of this one seem pretty good. I still say (and I think DH will back me up) that the best phone I ever had was the Matrix one, despite its brick like size and capacity for popping open in my bag.

A very nice phone. Got a lot of bells and whistles.

I loved my old Sony phone - simple but very easy to use.

Nokia are just so stylish and easy to navigate. If you want a phone that will simply text and phone (me) and not make your dinner for you while simultaneously wanking you off and cutting your hair, then you may as well buy it on looks and navigation, and you can't beat a Nokia for that.


Actually that second phone sounds good :nervous:

It's funny because Nokia's to me are just the simple basic phones, the least pretentious you can get 'cause so many people have got one...

Asher

If they are so simple and basic, why do they have such keypad designs?

Not only are they ugly as sin, they're impractical, too.

Plus, the screen can get scratched (no cover), keys can be pressed while it's in your pocket (giving your friends annoyign calls!).

Just lock the keypad. :rolleyes: :lol:


My personal opinion is that flip phones are ugly and annoying so I wouldn't have one. Other people like them, which is fair enough.

I'm not arrogant enough to assume that my taste is better than everyone elses... :cute:

I like my Audiovox. Do they still make those? It's about 3 years old.

Funko

Apparently... I've never heard of them.

Why the hell should you have to lock the keypad? That's so tedious and unnecessary.

Flip-phones are more practical. They allow for more compact designs when not in use, better sound quality while in use (mic gets closer to the mouth), prevents screen scratching, and doesn't force you to keylock the thing to prevent calling people while it's in your pocket.

My first phone wasn't a flip phone and I hated it. Screen got scratched to hell after a couple years and it annoyed the hell out of me to keep locking the keypad.

What a good thing there are different phones for different people. :beer:

Nokias are still impractical and bought by trendy Abercrombie-wearing twats.

The same people who buy iPods, presumably.

Shame that there's a huge market for it.

Flip-phones are quite thick I find. Their length and width are ok but they are pretty deep, so no more "space saving" that Nokias.

My Nokia fits in my pocket nicely and I dont care if the screen gets scratched - it's a tool not a work of art.

Funko
19-04-2005, 16:37:38
ps. Anyway SS's new phone is not a Nokia and not a flip phone so what's your point?

Ah, you are generalising on your limited world experience again. I guess the market is totally different there. Here they are the most common phone so generalising that Nokia users is a small group like that makes you look a bit silly.

There is a setting to lock it automatically after a set period of inactivity

Yeah. I'd rather have something I carry in my pocket all the time be thin and wide than squat and fat.

Nokia is manly? What do you say about Siemens then?

World handset market

Nokia: 35%
Motorola: 16.4%
Samsung: 12.5%
Siemens: 8%
Sony Ericsson: 5.6%

So looks like it's not just here where they are the most popular.

Flip phone:
http://www.telusmobility.com/on/pcs/handset_motorola_v710.shtml
94 mm x 49 mm x 23 mm

Non-flip phone: http://www.telusmobility.com/on/pcs/handset_nokia_3205i.shtml

107mm x 45mm x 21mm

2mm difference in thickness...

Mind you the Nokia non-flip phone in this comparison is much crappier than the flip phone, also.

Nokia's marketshare is tanking rapidly.

And yeah, they're the most popular in Europe. Not here. We're above that kind of stuff, 'cept for the teenage girls and their Nokias with the oh-so-cute faceplates...

K700i is a very good phone.

I wants.
