according to Krussel's top 10 selling mobile phones...nokia 3720c is the top selling nokia phone in the years 2010 and 2011, 6303c, e52 and c5 also emerged on its top ten list. 3720c is indeed a simple, sturdy and affordable phone...i got one colored grey!!!
been using it now as my main phone...its a safe, simply classic and secure easy to use phone!!!
solid keypads...the most solid of all s40 series nokia ive ever used...and its elegant in simple ruggedness!
a rough and tough mob but i handled it w care all the time just like other cellphones must have to b treated...dont try to INTENTIONALLY drown it in water or beer, throw it so hard in cement floor, crash it into ur cars front and back wheel or hammer it just to test if its indeed that rough n tough...only a fool will intentionally do it w his/her own phone...this phone is made that way for extra protection for accidental situations...i got one and im the one that protects it...cheers!!!
a ruggedly-tough phone dressed in an elegantly simple style...its speaker at the back is also water resistant as well as its exposed charging lit area...so overall this is one of the safestly built nokia phone...i owned a grey one...simply great!!!
i think its one of the better s40 series phones...long lasting battery life, easy texting keypads, very durable casing, classical design, light display is brighter than 6303c...only its video and cam is mediocre...overall its worth as a main phone
nasserdin, 31 May 2011Go for Samsung B2100 ofcourseSamsung B2100 has a design fault. It only has one button to lock the keypad. I am always knocking mine it switches off or makes calls from my phone book
me, 28 Jan 2012I used this mode for 5 months 1 year ago, but in one rainy day, the phone happened to be just ... moreGuess you were unlucky, but this is worth commenting.
This phone's achilles heel is the battery lid, which must be fitted tightly with not too much dirt in between. My phone has taken quite a beating after a year of heavy usage and god knows how many drops onto hard surfaces, but still no problem to flush it with water under the tap.
I used this mode for 5 months 1 year ago, but in one rainy day, the phone happened to be just a phone not different from other (rain get into the phone and killed it 149 euro lost), but then use the Sonim Force but was disappointed because its poor and stupid software.Today I use Samsung XCOVER 271, for 79 euro it's really waterproof and incredible battery, 3 days with 2 emails on all the time, one hour calls and at least 8 hours listening to music through Bluetooth headphones at work,I have to say that Nokia should be thinking of building a new, modern and stable Nokia Xcover cool.
I really want to say nokia 3720 mob is very good handset & great..but its not water resistant,,but its design is very good...
The main thing I think this phone is missing is 3G network support. A new Nokia tough phone with 3G would be great..
I think many people interest this kind of fone (shock, dust and water jet resistant) but it should be used with 2 sim card. . sorry its just my opinion ! because now people have 1 or 2 phones already, they really dont want to carry many phones at the same time.
I really love this phone (good design & strong). It will be nice if this phone can use 2 sim with the same price.
One of the slowest responding phones I have ever tested... The preloaded bookmarks cannot be deleted and are in the way... The EDGE has been de-rated to a silly... The back cover not reliable enough...
Otherwise not too bad...
as soon as i brought it home, i filled a glass of water and i immersed it completely under water showing off to my family. in seconds it switched itself off (drowned). it took me about half an hour to dry it using a hairdryer. since then(1.5 years) the phone is perfect. misleading underwater video clips in utube.
Hey ... it says "water jets" resistant not "deep into the ocean resistant".
Don't take it badly but it's so foolish to sink an electronic device into the sea or bucket of water to check if it's "water resistant".
Bertil, 28 Sep 2010Be aware of the fact that Nokia 3720 has a bad radio reception!It was tested with professional... moreAbout the bad signal reception: The phone that you tested was made where ? Does it plays mp4 movies well ?
