professor's review of Nokia 216

★☆☆☆☆

“Very Expernsive.”

Written on: 28/10/2017 by professor (14 reviews written)

Very expernsive.

Claim 1:
"Maximum standby time: Up to 24 days".
Fact: Lasted less than a week WITHOUT being used at all. i.e fully charged first then put on a table with no single call or text ... not even touched to view screen etc - and I mean not 'touched'.

Claim 2:
"Maximum talk time (2G): Up to 18 h".
Fact: Can not see how this could possibly manage a few hours of basic call/text on 2G - let alone more than a day and half of constant talk/text/Internet? as stated.

Claim 3:
"Maximum music playback time: Up to 47 h".
Fact: Battery would die completely flat from full charge in a couple of hours (at most).

Claim 4:
"Battery capacity: 1020 mAh".
Fact and figures don't support this wild exageration even phone at idling mode.

Claim 5, 6, 7, 8 ... .
"Internet ready"
"Stay entertained"
"Internet Browser"
"Bluetooth"
Fact: With a dead battery? Or a battery that dies within a couple of hours of light/fair use of basic calls/texts? Come on! Judge yourself.

It goes on and on and on. Lest leave there.

Extremely expensive for what it is; a basic call phone. At £35 on eBay (possibly more elsewhere), this is nearly a half or more than third the cost of a brand new modren smartphone.

All in all, undoubtly the worst product (and the most expensive of its kind)I've ever bought on the Internet since 2000.

In short, don't touch it at any cost cost, even if it's reduced to £10. Instead, get a decent basic phone at less than a third of that price; £9 - £10 for new and much better. Or a half decent Android smartphone from China etc. Or double £35 to get a brand new modern smartphone, that's not a Samsung Galaxy or one of those other overpriced brands. Since then, three (3) similar basic phones but new newer cost me just under £27 (you do the maths).

I wish I had read a review like this to save money, time and hassle.

Thanks.
PS; No it does not look like fake, faulty etc, but original OEM brand.
