Pros Forget the narrow minded critics who aren't capable of understanding the full potential and design of this great phone!! With little computer know how, you can easily add SmartMovie and UltraMP3 to this already feature enriched phone and own an incredibly
Cons Technology is always progressing and hindsight is always 20(20 so the critics will always have some ammo. But, yes, Nokia should have left the FM & MP3 player in. And yes, a better speaker and stereo output would be nice. Personally, I'd like to see t
Pros Symbian os, reception, many functions
Cons Form factor hard to get used to, screen resolution
Summary Great phone for the money, better reception than my other phones, very fun to tweak OS, full bluetooth functionality (unlike some other phones), great games, too bad the screen is old-school resolution and the shape is odd, but it's smaller than a Treo and has same PIM functions. See Handango.com for software-lots of add-ons for every functions! Also, it syncs perfectly with Mac OS (phone book and calendar) right out of the box! Too bad there's no camera. Don't pay too much, look at gaming stores (Game Stop, etc.) for good deals.
Pros Good games, great versatility, and expandability with an MMC card. The Symbian OS is a dream to use. Bluetooth is a bonus...with a wireless keyboard it's now my PDA. The best part? The games are getting better and better. (also, if you go to a certain, we
Cons When I first bought it, I was snapping up all the games available (except those found on the aforementioned CD, of course), fearing and expecting that they could shut down N-gage production at any time. But now that major corporations are producing some v
Pros for a great price you get a great phone, bluetooth, symbian os, and a good gaming device. short of mp3 it is all a dork could ask for. of course, if you were a really techie you would already have a good mp3 player. i have to say that this is a great phon
Pros Rugged, Large buttons, Large Screen (for a phone)
Cons Call audio needs to be adjustable to louder settings No cheap camera inside to take crummy photos of auto accidents and coworkers embarassing themselves (sigh)
Summary I have had my Nokie N-Gage QD for 2 years now. I still can't find a better phone that wouldn't cost me another two to four hundred dollars.
I am a grown woman (not terribly mature). I say this because you should know that I am well outside of the targeted audience for this phone.
What drew me to the phone in the first place were the large buttons. I wanted to be able to dial without having to read the keyboard. I also wanted something that was not flimsy. I saw this in stores and wanted to know more. It also looked VERY cool compared to nearly every other phone on the market at the time.
I admit I also liked the idea of having something to do while waiting in lines and visiting boring relatives. Alas, it was hard to find. I finally found one at a Cingular store 50 miles away. HAPPY HAPPY JOY! JOY!
Call quality and fidelity is far better than most, if not all, of my friends' phones. My adult friends say, "Gimme that!" when they first see it.
Recently I thought I might want a new phone, afterall nobody who's hip keeps a phone more than two years, right? Long story short, nearly every thing on the market, including the Motorola Razr, felt very delicate and flimsy by comparison. Also, the screens are no bigger, unless you spend more than you should to get one of those mini-computers (probably won't fit in your pocket, so you'll set it down, and 20 minutes later say, 'Hey where's my phone!?!)
At this point unless there are some SIGNIFICANT improvements in wireless phone offerings I'll probably just buy another Nokia N-Gage QD when and if this one wears out.
