The "1-Minute" Review
Do you remember the Reeses Peanut butter cup commercial when the chocolate and peanut butter crash into each other, creating a fabulous taste sensation? Well, the Nokia 3500 Classic has modern day, trendy attributes in a familiar candy bar shape with a familiar key arrangement.
The Nokia 3500 is an entry level tri-band candy bar phone from a proven and respected manufacturer that offers a feature set geared directly toward those customers looking for a durable phone with a few extras. It measures 107 x 45 x 13.1 mm, available in grey and pink and has a modest 128x160 pixel display.
Running on the Symbian OS, it boasts a 3 hour talk time, comes with a modest built-in camera and includes both USB and Bluetooth connection options. With the 3500 you can talk, text, take pictures and video.
In standard candy bar format, the screen is on top and a standard keypad below, along with the well placed “send” and “end” keys. Between the screen and keypad is a four-way navigation key that is a bit small but functional.
The phone comes with travel charger, user guide, headset, 128 memory card and pouch.
If you don’t need your phone to flip, swivel, slide or backstroke, take a look at the Nokia 3500 Classic. It's a basic but competent phone.
