    The antidote to smart phones

    Couldn't quite believe this - perhaps I should put it in retail therapy

    Re: The antidote to smart phones

    I actually had one of these for a bit (not the same model, but a basic phone) a couple of years ago when my iPhone died the death. It's amazing how much time you get back.

    I actually use a lot of the features of my iPhone eg GPS, Audible on the go, checking email etc but it was quite the eye opener.

    400mAh! No worries about battery fires, if you shorted the whole thing at once you'd probably only get a small pop

    Re: The antidote to smart phones

    I was looking for a cheap non touchscreen for my nan and bought the Nokia 215. What shoddy quality! Body is all plastic and the screen islegible only when held at certain angles. Sadly, the last proper metal body Nokia phone was the C2 and you can only buy them used.
