leela, 21 Jul 2008thanks for your reply but i still have two more queries (1) i recorded my kids voice to use as... morehMMm.. 1) recording, yeah i found the sound was too soft as well when recording my guitar playing. i guess it cant be helped, mayb d phone's weakness? 2) i use my phone quite extensively for games, file sync, file transfer, alot of sms' , calls sumtimes 10mins to mor than an hour. the battery would last me either a day n half, or two days. i tink its okay considering the nice screen drains the batt compared to normal screens.
can anyone please comment on the battery backup, how long does it last, how much hours of talk time. my usage is around 30-40 mins a day.
can anyone tell me .... i m confused with two phones. i want to buy same range of phone. what do u think motorolla L9 is better or NOKIA 3120 classic ??
3120 classic user, 20 Jul 2008No you cant take pictures with the front camera. The phone is great!! everything is great... i... morethanks for your reply but i still have two more queries (1) i recorded my kids voice to use as a ringtone but when i use it the sound is very low, i've tired increasing the volume from the side but no good; (2) how good is the battery and how long would it last especially with a bluetooth, its not lasting too much for me right now....any advise.........
No you cant take pictures with the front camera. The phone is great!! everything is great... its fast! supports up to 4gb..n doesnt lag with the micro sd almost full. Screen is nice, functions enough, has 3G n EDGE as well for those with no 3G service providers. two things sucked though, the camerA!! pictures are grainy seriously bad.. it looks nice on the phone, but when u transfer to pc...its bad.. next, the sound from speakers sucked, like older nokias. I had a 3500 classic n i tink it sounds better than most SE walkman series. sound and camera, if u can live without them , then get the phone!! its gud ;)
hi, i wanted to know how does the front camera in this phone work? Does it only work with video confernecing and can't be used to capture pictures otherwise? Please do let me know in case any one has the answer....thanks. Also how exactly does one use it while the video conferencing?
so, is it a recommended handphone or not?? because i'm looking for 3G handphone and lower price. i read the review and i think this is the one that i'm looking for. who can help me, because each comments are different and that makes me confused. Does it like the reviewer (gsmarena) said or not?
Some people are stupid and don't read reviews and make quick dumb statements.

Thanks for a great review. I got this phone myself, and in general I'm very satisfied with it. Just two issues: There are some annoying squeeky sounds from the battey cover, and from some of the keys as well, but I can live with it. What's worse: The backlight goes off after just 10 seconds. That's really annoying, even though it might save power.
Kabir, 30 Jun 2008Does Nokia own this site (GSM Arena)? Man! You people convert an ordinary Nokia Phone to an Ex... moreKabir,
You sound rata*ded.
Basically, they say that there are many better phones
than this one for the same price, which is the most
negative thing that can be said.
Does Nokia own this site (GSM Arena)? Man! You people convert an ordinary Nokia Phone to an Extra-Ordinary one in broad day light and cheat with hundreds of people. On ther other hand u critisize better offerings of other manufacturer for silly things and lead people to have a bad impression often. Chear Up GSM Arena.
i'm currently looking for 3G phone for my backup phone, and i think this one deserves some consideration
Well! You never know until you try!
Thats the only way anyone will improve
(these reviews, and the phone)
The review is TOO LONG!This is a budget phone!The review is even longer than windows powered Asus P750, Samsung's new flagship U900 Soul, etc...There are more things to discuss on those phones than this 3120! Now, it's getting clearer that gsmarena is pro-nokia. They praise Nokia's display by exaggerating its outdoor behavior where in fact Samsung displays are far better when it comes to indoor being more sharp & vibrant.There are less people who text under the heat of the sun!
i know this is not supposed to be a high tier handset but why do gsmarena bother reviewing this? Majority of the people knows what to expect in it anyway? and besides, why not review a phone instead that is of interest by many??
ok, there is a mid-end fone, the music cuality is impressive, the camera the same thing, but its a mid-end fone, not a N95!!
god job nokia, but i still love only the smartfones of nokia
I don't understand Nokia's point of developing this forgettable phone. It doesn't even look nice...
Nokia just wasted time and effort that could've been used for its other phones.
Like GSMArena said, there are better phones out there than this...
revolutionary idea , 3g in a low end device heads off Nokia , Even I fone 3g lacks video calling where a Nokia low end does it .
