The most remarkable phone no-one wanted to buy.
I got this phone cheap, less than 300$ a year after launch. So maybe the goodwill succeeding that bargain forced me to look at it with a lot more love than the average consumer.
First the pros, there isnt a single phone camera, maybe except the iPhone 6 Plus with the advantage of BSI and OIS, that offers anything close to the noiseless, vibrant images(better than most 200-300$ point n shoots arguably). The screen is lovely, colourful, offers deep blacks and has an LCD like white, very refreshing from the yellow tinted AMOLED my current driver Moto X provides. Symbian, even with all its kinks is as fast as it can be on a 512MB RAM single core phone, and daily operation is quite smooth. The sunlight legibility is fantastic, puts most androids to shame. Another aspect worth mentioning is its rich recording, I've frequently taken this to concerts, and even recorded friends singing. And the output never fails to amaze people around me. The loudspeaker is also quite decent, although not close to HTC's stereo ones. The battery life is also fantastic(obviously so).
The main flaws - Symbian is difficult to be a daily driver. Lack of apps(much more so in 2015), an average keyboard, the fluidity of touch and animations being incomparable to modern smartphones and the fact that Opera Mini is probably the only usable browser on it.
But even with all its flaws, it is a wonderful, spunky phone with a loving community of fans and users who are doing all they can to ensure this phone is relevant even after 3 years of launch. The phone also manages to garner quite a lot of attention wherever it is taken, and will always be a source of pride for me. This phone stands for everything Nokia in my opinion. Innovative, unrivalled features with an utter lack of understanding of what attracts consumers in the post-iPhone era, a self admitted niche device. The most remarkable phone that no-one wanted.

This the best phone ever had, although it has weaknesses specially in internet browsing and social networking apps but it's ok because i only use whatsapp and works great. i really love the camera & built.My wife owned Galaxy Kzoom but no match with image quality.kzoom is better in OS,Speed,internet and zooming only. I won't replace this phone anymore until it powers on.
