Excellent basic phone with internet/mail access
This review is from: Nokia 301 White 3.15 MP Camera Stereo FM Radio Bluetooth Unlocked GSM Cell Phone
Pros: This looks like your typical basic Nokia candy bar style phone. What sets this phone apart is that is gives you the advantages of a basic phone (good call quality, long battery life, low cost, and keypad) with the ability to have basic internet access (not WiFi) anywhere you have cell coverage, and at little cost. The interface for the e-mail isn't slick, but it works quickly for my Yahoo account. The interface for the internet browsing is a bit klunky, but it is adequate, and uses very little data. The implementation of google maps for this phone is actually quite good. There is an app included called "Nokia Nearby" that tells you where restaurants, motels, and other services are near you, and it works surprisingly well. The phone feels solid, call quality is good, keypad is fine for texting, battery life is excellent, and I like the Nokia series 40 interface. Display is large enough for my purposes. There is a 3.2 megapixel camera with some nice features, including panorama, self timer and self portrait, but it works best in good light -- OK for record shots, but certainly not up to basic point and shoot camera quality.
Cons: If you are looking for a smartphone with a slick interface, touch screen, etc., this is *not* for you. It's a basic phone that has the added bonus of being able to retrieve e-mail and get the information you might want/need from the internet.
Other Thoughts: Has FM radio, calendar, music player, and the like. Nothing fancy, but works well for me.
