Good little phone
Reviewed on Wednesday October 6, 2004 by Frederic, Laval, Quebec
I've used the 3120 for a few days now, and so far, I'm impressed. This could be a nice replacement for the 3595, which has been recently discontinued.
Pros : The screen is very nice, even for a 4096 colors. The text is crisp and very easy to read, the keypad has a nice backlit feature (much better than the one on the 3100 where you could barely read the numbers). The menus are as easy as ever, if you've used a Nokia in the past 5 years, you'll feel right at home with this one. The speakerphone feature works really well, the volume is high enough to use in a car, and the voice quality is superb (much, much better than the speaker on the Motorola Vxxx phones). The reception is exceptionnal (no wonder coming from a Nokia), and the addition of an international frequency (1800 MHz) is a nice bonus.
Cons : This phone continues the Nokia trend : same phone, different cover. Its a carbon copy of the 3100. The exact same menus, the same screen, the only thing different is the cover and keypad. At first, I found the look to be a little too feminine for my taste, but that feeling has quickly passed. Also, I wonder how the manufacturers will be able to make the size of candybar phones smaller and smaller...
All in all, I highly recommend this phone to almost every customers, especially the ones who don't like flip phones. Lets just hope that the next Nokia phones will show some evolution in the future.
