    “I've used the Nokia 8890 mobile phone for over two...”

    Written on: 11/09/2003 by Palko212 (1 review written)

    I've used the Nokia 8890 mobile phone for over two years and can say it has been excellent. It has all of the features I need (read: use the most): excellent SMS, large address book, voice dialing and easy-to-use menu. It's small, has backlit keys and can be used with the sliding cover open or closed.

    I don't think it's fair to compare it to newer phones that have polyphonic rings, cameras or better games. It's all a matter of personal taste and needs. (To be honest, those polyphonic rings… Read Full Review

    Written on: 07/08/2003 by mobileman (2 reviews written)

    The phone design of the Nokia 8890 mobile phone puts Nokia in a class of it's own. The sliding cover protects the keys and adds an additional "ooh" factor to this phone. The tiny retractable antenna is also an inovative design feature. Call quality varies between good and very good. This phone is being primarily used on Canadian GSM networks. Some might say it's outdated due to lack of MMS, polyphonic ringtones, colour screen, etc. However, this phone is for high end users who are just… Read Full Review

    Written on: 12/10/2002 by gadget boy. (1 review written)

    By now we're all familiar with Nokia's functionality and product features. This gem is consistant with other models and makes one feel right at home immediately. The GSM network is very solid and reliable in eastern Canada and seldomly, less than twice a week, are calls dropped throughout the greater metropolitan areas of Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City, and Sherbrooke. I've owned both the Motorola V60 and v70 brands and they are far behind the 8890! Too bad it's discontinued. I mean if… Read Full Review

    Written on: 06/09/2002 by Peter. (1 review written)

    I bought this Noia 8890 mobile phone last year. It looked the business. After just one day it failed, couldn't get a signal and when it finally did, dropped calls after connection. Replaced the handset, replaced the sim, same again. Replaced everything again, on BT Cellnet, same again so I traded in for a SL45!
    It is also just a "poshed up" 8210 with no additions, so no more "bang" for your brewsters… Read Full Review

    Written on: 23/01/2002 by Jeremy. (1 review written)

    I have had no problems with my nokia 8890 phone, except for the chap at the Carphone Warehouse, who didn't know how to remove the battery cover, and just yanked it off, and hence, it is now a bit loose. There is a small button on the side that needs to be pressed for the cover to slide off as intended. (moron)… Read Full Review

    I don't think the button you're referring to is intended to open the battery cover - it's for the Infra-red.

    Written on: 17/03/2003

    What a ******* of a reply?? The button he's refering to is on the right side of the 8890 and is part of the chrome line, and it's directly under the black top bit at the back. So there u go, stop pushing the infrared he doesn't like it. I wonder how many people just yanked it off because it's a really concealed button.

    Written on: 03/10/2001 by Andrew. (1 review written)

    This is Nokia's best handset. It works (once they have "tweaked" it) and is one of the most reliable phones available.
    If I had a criticism it is that sometimes the chip is too slow, when processing an instruction...but hey, you can't have everything!… Read Full Review
