My dream phone after subsequent upgrades of basic phone from nokia 3210,3310,8210,1100(torch),1110,1112,1200,1202,1280(torch)
(i)Basic phone who need real mobile communication without burden of gadjets.
(ii) Mono display cool and more visible in any kind of glare or sun shine with ultra low power consumption (going green)
(iii) simplicity of software make it fast for texting and cal handling variables than any high end processor mobile loaded with unwanted features 80% people does nt use just list of spec. are there main reasons to buy.
(iv) Good battery backup time more than week.
(v) very dashing and excellent fabricated keypad beat any of its predecessors.
(vii) Torch luminousness is very perfect
(i)Voice leakage from back side speaker.
I love this phone, Thanks to nokia for keeping it up.
