Nokia 3500 Classic


A basic prepaid mobile targeted at first-time and low-end users, Nokia's 3500 Classic is a stylish, well built handset with some impressive features. ...

Simplistic but stylish design, decent features list, impressive keypad and controls, user interface, Bluetooth, microSD card slot

Poor resolution display, 2.5mm headphone jack, average camera

The 3500 Classic is compact, stylish and easy to use. If you're after a basic mobile phone containing all of the basics and a little more, this is one of the best options out there.

Nokia 3500 classic review: Classicaly simple


To get it straight, Nokia 3500 classic is not the kind of handset to have you head-over-heels in love. It was never meant to be. What really matters in this classic from-the-head-not-the-heart scenario is ease of use, decent looks and passable...

1.8" TFT 256K-color display ; Compact and light-weight handset ; 2 megapixel camera ; microSD card slot ; Good organizer ; S40 3rd edition user interface ; Stereo FM radio ; 2.5mm standard stereo audio jack ; MiniUSB slot ; Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP ;...

Inadequate display resolution ; No 3G ; Java-based email client ; No hot swap for the memory card ; No camera flash and no dedicated shutter key ; Disappointing video recording ; 8.5 MB of internal memory only ; User interface has limited capabilities

Talking about the competition of Nokia 3500 classic is risky: there are so many handsets we can easily miss. To begin with, Sony Ericsson K550 seems to bring an almost identical set of features. The slightly higher screen resolution and the Cyber-shot...

Nokia 3500 classic Review


Created for people that are looking for a low-budget handset, the Classic series developed by Nokia offers only basic communication features and an ordinary design. Usually compact and sturdy, the Classic series mobile phones are older models, which...

Besides its appealing form, low price and 2G technology, there's nothing more to add to the positive features of the Nokia 3500 classic. If this had been called 'The Average', then I would've enlisted almost all the features of the handset., on 30 Jun...

The only thing I consider unacceptable is the small screen that features such a low resolution (128x160 pixels). The battery also could've been better, but three hours of talk time are still OK if you don't use the phone too much. The MicroSD slot card...

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...

nice sturdy feel, which makes it feel like it won't fall apart


Fairly basic, but a nice sturdy feel, which makes it feel like it won't fall apart any time soon - in fact, mine has survived a few drops already. There is nothing special in the features, but it has all I need and probably all most people would need...
