D D Das, 30 Jul 2010Hi (Actual/experienced users of Nokia 2960),
I would like to buy use it as a backup phone.... moreHi! i'm also using it as a back-up phone, so my expectations were not too high at the time of purchasing. But later i realized that it has more then i expected.
-network reception is good as other nokia phones. Never dropped a single call due to loss of signals.
-Speaker volume and ringtone volume is reasonably loud. Go for the chinese brands if you want more volume. Sound quality is very good.
-Display readablity in bright is not so good but still you can read your msgs and contacts comfortably. You can not get high-end displays in this price range.
I particularly like this phone. The ringers and the music volume is quite louder than any nokia I've tried. It feels very sturdy yet looks very pretty. I have it in Graphite. I've got no problems with the keypad, the ui, etc. One thing I'm kinda bothered though is the almost horrible quality screen resolution. It hurts my eyes upon looking at it for long periods of time as I usually read ebooks. But overall, I'd give it an 8 out of 10.
is the nokia 2690 phone best or the nokia 2700 classic better that nokia 2690 plz reply soon plzzzzzzzz......
i am using the phone really its very very good phone the mp3 player output is excellent.but the backdrop is vga camera
Hi (Actual/experienced users of Nokia 2960),
I would like to buy use it as a backup phone.
Just a few ques, keeping in mind it is a more of a "budget phone" ...
- How gd is the network reception ?
- The speaker - how clear & loud is it ?
- Rigtone volume ?
- What is the actual talk time per full charge ?
- How clear is the display in bright sunlight. the other higher end nokia I am using is clear to read even in bright sunlight.
Thnaks in advance !!
