Nokia 3500 is a phone in the classic range of Nokia mobiles. This was launched with some good features in it. The phone is a budget phone with sleek design, long battery life and some good functionalities. You will love this phone till its compared to a new model from Samsung called J630. It shows that Nokia can take a little care to make their mid range phones more better and competitive.
The candy bar designed phone is a triband phone with an array of features in it. The stylish metal frame of the phone gives a kind of retro look to it. You can add 2000 entries to the phonebook and there is a card slot to increase the external memory of the phone up to 2 GB. This Nokia 3500 classic is equipped with a 2 Mp camera for still and video photography with facilities like digital zoom and auto focus. The model is perfect for wireless transfer of data and file to another device with the help of Bluetooth. You have more facilities with GPRS, EDGE, WAP browser, USB port and functionalities like internet access, instant messaging, email, SMS, MMS and others.
The other common functions of the phone includes a media player, FM radio, T9, Organizer, built in hands free and others. But as you compare the Nokia 3500 with Samsung J630 its found that the phone could not keep up to the limits of needs that most people want from such a mid range phone. The screen of J630 is much bigger compared to 3500. There is GPRS and 3G with 384 kbps for fast browsing and downloading of data from web. In camera and other features like media player both the phones stand in the same platform.
But the features with which Samsung J630 beats Nokia 3500 are document viewer, mobile printing, memo book and battery back up. The Samsung model is filled with more extra features which you won’t find in Nokia 3500. For all these reasons 3500 won’t be a good choice if you have access to Samsung J630. If you don’t need the functionals which are missing in the phone then Nokia 3500 won’t be a bad choice.
