A couple of days before I have asked a question about the sound quality or settings issue.
I have figured it out myself. Nokia has done a new thing in its profile settings.
The volume is hard coded.
That is, if you select "silent" as your profile, and increase your volume to the maximum level that will not take effect. It will be loud enough as per that profile. So if you want the highest volume, you have to select the profile "outdoor".
My overall opinion about the phone after using it for around a month.
An awesome "allrounder" for its price. In Chennai, India it just costs Rs.6,400.00 only.
I did not make a mistake by buying a N1100 earlier. And I have the same strong feeling that I did not make a mistake buy buying this N3110C now ... :)
It's all good except the camera. The picture quality is really poor. It's like VGA quality.
Im going to buy this phone in few days. I heard that the sound & camera is not good enough is it right?
Hey..what is the position of the viewfinder of the camera? portrait or landscape? thx
could some1 please tell me whether i should go for the nokia 3110 classic or the samsung e250.
-the samsung seems prettier than the nokia.should i be sacrificing reliability over looks?
-they both seem to be having the same specifications.but the screen on the nokia is smaller than the samsung though the nokia has a higher resolution
-is the slider reliable over long and frequent use?
-can either of the phones survive falls once in a while?
please anyone.HELP!ive to decide between them.and if anyone can suggest another phone or model in the same range please feel free to give me your opinion.thanks

Be it as your daily use or back up use, this 3110 Classic is truly a good budget allrounder phone. From what I've tested so far :-
Signal and Alert tones:-
Signal is strong, no problem at all at 1 or 2 level lowerground basement. And alert tone, they're loud and well heard at indoor. Well heard at outdoor too if we did not put it in our bag or pocket in our pants. Vibration also not bad, u can feel it's quite strong. To treat it as your mp3 player, it ain't gonna sing like any Walkman Series or 6233 due to its sound is a little distorted when played it at max volume on some mp3 from its speaker. It sound better with earphone plugged in. The sound is acceptable with a correct EQ setting.
Camera Shooting n Video Capturing:-
Its 1.3MP is not bad at all. With correct white-balance especially Auto and Daylight, images captured during day time or good lighting is acceptable and nice (warm colour with slightly over exposed if background/surrounding is too bright). Of course, lack of flash leads to higher noise at lower light condition but tat's common for camera & camera phone.
It's able to last me 3-4 days with Receive/Making 30mins of call per Day and also sending/receiving 20-40sms per Day, which i think this is very very good! If u're heavy user, ofcoz, batt life will cut short to 1-2.5 days but that's logic!
The other functionalities such as Media Player, Equalizer, FM radio (stereo), Flight mode, Bluetooth, Infrared, better calculator, Flash Lite and its 2.5 socket are just nice.
3110C is a highly recommended phone for those who running low on budget but need all the functionalities to carry around daily. And lastly, please never compare this to any other higher end or more expensive models, bcoz the fact is, pay more get more, pay less get less!
Hope my info and review help ;)
great phone! camera not great in dark light. i got 3110c + 2gb sd for $210AUD. its got every gadget on it, bar flashlight. sometimes music can freeze phone and cause to restart but this has only happened a couple times for me. normal digital camera usb fits it. shame headphones are smaller than standard. still reasonable sound through headphones. very easy to use too. cant seem to work out how to change the colour of font on desktop screen cos sometimes time etc becomes hard to see if photo wallpaper is used. i recommend anyone to get this phone. cant really go wrong.
This is really a nice phone considering the budget.......how can anyone compare it with 6300?? itz price is too high....but the FM sound quality of this is poor..and i have to pause for a little after taking a shot in this camera which is pretty good in daylight...not so in the night mode...but below Rs. 7k in India.......this is an amazing phone with itz looks and features......
Not bad for a mid range phone... I think the features are pretty impressive - quick to start up. I do agree with some of the users about the volume problem. The battery was poor initially for the first few charges, but has improved now. Sound is ok.
Does anyone know if the USB 2.0 connector that goes to the phone a 4 or a 5pin? I've been told that it's the same type that is used for cameras.
nice easy to use phone. good battery life a few nigly features like saving a created message to draught folder why? on screen symbols a little small as with all new nokias check out the 6233 you will see what i mean.but overall this is a GOOD PHONE!
This is a fantastic cheap fone! It cost me only 6,300 pesos from Greenhills! And that's with Nokia Care warranty!

Im going to buy this phone today. I heard that the sound is not good enough is it right?
6,600 pesos is unbelievable for me. it costs 10,500 pesos at Gaisano in Ozamis. where did you buy it in Manila? Mall of Asia ?
