Nokia 3120 classic comes with a good number of preinstalled applications outside the organizer too.

WidSets is a group of web based applications that are quite at hand and easy to access. Those include weather, online dictionary and so on.

A unit converter is also on board and is in fact a really good one. It offers a good number of conversions, including currencies.

Next two games in line are the sport simulation Golf Tour and the Java version of the popular Japanese game Sudoku. All the games have decent graphics and are comparatively easy to play.

The first thing to note at wrap-up is the really nice performance and handling of Nokia 3120 classic. Yeah, we know it's not much of a specs sheet but what's there gets delivered right. Quad-band network support, excellent display and 3G do add value to the clean and simple 3120 classic.

In the beginning of this review we went to great lengths describing the serious pressure the 3120 classic will have to handle. That's good news for every user out there. All you need to do it is get your priorities right and indulge in the abundance of choice. This is a price range where value-for-money is imperative and it's up to you whether it's sleeker looks, better camera, 3G or simply the lower asking price.

All that said, it's unlikely for Nokia 3120 classic to let you down, especially if you get it on a deal or subsidized by a carrier.
