GSMArena

Leading position in terms of sound, reproduction quality, earphones quality, and music player options

from GSMArena

Nokia 3250's main, but still indirect competitor is Sony Ericsson W800 (read the following detailed review). The real fight will start once the expected Sony Ericsson W950 hits the market. Sony Ericsson maintains its leading position in terms of sound, reproduction quality, earphones quality, and music player options. What's more, W800's memory card has 4 times bigger capacity than the one of Nokia 3250, and its Memory Stick Pro Duo format is more extensive than Nokia's microSD...

Nokia 3250's main, but still indirect competitor is Sony Ericsson W800 (read the following detailed review). The real fight will start once the expected Sony Ericsson W950 hits the market. Sony Ericsson maintains its leading position in terms of sound, reproduction quality, earphones quality, and music player options. What's more, W800's memory card has 4 times bigger capacity than the one of Nokia 3250, and its Memory Stick Pro Duo format is more extensive than Nokia's microSD.

I admit I am impressed by Nokia 3250's good construction, by the excellent elaboration of its body, by its pretty colors and high-class keypad. The phone is extremely fast in Java and offers all advantages a Symbian OS can provide - an endless phonebook, brilliant time organizing functions, work with messages and emails etc. Nokia 3250 has one of the best cameras among same-resolution phones too.

If I was to decide whether to get myself Nokia 3250, I would not really mind the absence of infrared port, nor the missing camera macro mode. The problem I see in Nokia's new smartphone is the incompatibility of its programs with current Symbian applications. And what about waiting for a little while? It will not take long before Nokia launches its new N91 model. It will definitely be more expensive, but will also be full of brilliant music functions. The third option is the above mentioned Sony Ericsson W950.

O-K, I bought one of these phones used a while ago on Ebay and it's still working great. My Brother wanted one but as they seem to auction some of them as *RARE* now, The price has obviously gone high too. Watch out for ones saying *Just needs battery...I think* or *Just a slight problem with the camera/MP3 player* These from my experience with my phone shop can be repaired but add another £49.00 to be repaired IF indeed it can be! My second purchase had a faulty Camera and the phone displayed *offline*, The shop that attempted repair could'nt get it working...A new board inside required as the Sim card reader was'nt working. Don't risk the faulty phones unless you simply need spares for yours such as outer case etc. Less

The camera is outstanding and the mp3 quality is amazing. The only draw back is that the video recorder produces slightly pixelated videos, however the video editor, fantastic screen and contempory design make the Nokia 3250 a Fantstic Mobile !

I did like the swivel head. But the keypad was terrible and being a high speed texter it did not fit for me. Battery life was poor. Like the other fellow, I cannot believe that Nokia put their stamp of approval on this phone. You know what, I have tried and completely tested the Nokia N90, the Nokia N93, and the Nokia 95. Spending money does not bother me if it is for a state of the art product. To me, the Nokia N90 was one of the finest phones one could own. The volume was loud, the Zeiss lens was superb and it came with a flash. That phone is selling new on Ebay now for about $299.00 and it is the best value and performer out there. I would take it over the Nokia N93 and the N95. The N95 proved a great disappointment to me. I sold it for what I paid for it a week after having received on of the first models released. Granted, the N90 is bulky and weighs a lot to put in a shirt pocket, etc. However, the swivel head and various surreptitious software programs you can buy for the phone make it as excellent cell phone to own. Now I admit I am not a big music fan like some of your younger geeks out there. However, I do like some music and you should hear the speaking bellow out on the Nokia N90. Buy what you want, but this particular phone is not me. Less
