Really long battery life
Larger than the newer models
I had the Nokia 5110 mobile phone for the last two years. As mobile phone goes it works great. The battery life is fantastic. On one charge it has a standby time of about one week. Even after two years, with some battery care the standby time remains unchanged. I highly recommend it for those who recharge their phone infrequently.
Unfortunately, being "old" technology, the phone is larger than some of the newer models. With a leather case, the phone is quite large, and would be difficult to be carried in the pocket.
The ring tone is loud and clear, but there is no free space to upload ring tones - but it is a minor point as there are 30+ ring tones to choose from.
Overall, it is a great working phone. Not as sexy as the newer phones or have newer features (gimmicks) such as IR or voice dialling. But as a work horse use to receive and send calls, for the average Joe Bloggs it is great value.
