Top 5 Nokia Phones for Christmas 2011
So what does a loyal Nokia fan need this time of year? A guide on the Top 5 Nokia phones For Christmas of course. Below is the top 5 Nokia handsets worth thinking about, from the much-mentioned Nokia Lumia 800, to the Nokia N8. What one would you choose?
Nokia Lumia 800
Okay so an obvious attraction is the sleek design. Users expecting traditional Nokia styles will be pleasantly surprised at the Nokia Lumia 800. Curved with a 3.7-inch AMOLED Clear Black glass touchscreen display complements the unique design. So are the software features just as attractive? Well a 1.4GHz processor (speedier than the iPhone 4) running on the latest Mango 7.5 operating software means the answer is YES. Interestingly, Social media access is found through just one touch… social contacts are integrated where text, tweets and Facebook communication are all combined into a single thread. So save time and effort switching between social media accounts on Christmas Day when sending festive wishes to all your friends* NB: *benefit is of course dependent on your popularity. Most loyal Nokia users will be welcome Carl Zeiss optics for the 8-megapixel camera. In addition, users can get snap happy at exciting present-opening moments around the Christmas tree with a huge 16GB of memory for all photos, music and videos. Not to mention the HD quality playback that is bound to impress your relatives.
Operating on Symbian OS, The gorilla glass integrated X7 offers an impressive AMOLED display measuring at 4 inches. The 8-megapixel lens includes dual LED, face detection and a fixed focus mode for taking photos.
When it comes to playing back videos, the X7 features 720p playback and of course HD also found in the Nokia N8. Storage capacity for your cinema like movies can be loaded into a 32gb external storage using a microSD where you can also keep your files organised.
Nokia C3 One Direction
So it looks like a BlackBerry, it comes in three great colours* and is a ‘One Direction’ Exclusive Edition. It sounds like a dream for parents buying for their music-loving, socially active daughters. So what else should we be aware of before committing to this limited edition handset? Well, the QVGA screen is 2.4 inches and the QWERTY keyboard seems appropriate for the social networking orientated features. A simple click on the ‘dedicated message key’ will get you to the latest posts, updates and photos from your friends and family. News and updates are delivered directly to the homescreen and you can update your status and share photos with a click of a button. Furthermore, the key gives one-click access to email and chat and multiple chat accounts. Okay so the camera at a minuet 2 megapixels is low for current trends but this may not be a huge issue considering the other features which intend to appeal to the needs of a typical teen… high camera quality not being one of them. Other features include a Multimedia player, FM stereo radio and support for up to 8GB memory card. Measuring 115 x 58 x 14mm and weighing only 114g the Nokia C3 offers all a users needs to keep connected in a slender and portable form. So aside from the geeky technical stuff what will impress the excited recipient of such a handset? This special edition phone comes pre-loaded with exclusive One Direction wallpapers, ringtones and behind the scenes videos of the band. It’s a fun touch and type mobile with Facebook, apps, maps, email and more. EXCLUSIVE One Direction content, plus a chance to win VIP gig tickets! Such unique, exclusive extras that are on offer make the handset a hot contender for this Christmas.
*Available in three colours; slate grey, golden white or hot pink.
It’s said to be Nokia’s highest quality build of the year with its anodised aluminium body, scratch resistant surface. I think the most impressive functions are music and video focused. With Dolby Digital Plus and 720p nHD video supplied over a HDMI port for enjoyment on a TV or projector. There is also a fantastic 8-megapixel camera with face/smile detection, geo-tagging and a video/photo editor; Nokia has also generously supplied a 16GB internal memory. Such features could mean users are not required to make video-camcorder purchases for this Christmas. The HDMI port is a huge development and can result in entertainment for all the family when re-playing home videos on the TV. The overall design of the E7 is pleasing to the eye, especially when the AMOLED 4 inch display slides back and tilts to reveal a four-row QWERTY keyboard. On the other hand, some users may be happier with a straightforward style that requires no sliding mechanism. The large keyboard could potentially result in problems if the user finds stretching over its large area a struggle. All the messaging formats have been covered and a handy document viewer will allow email attachments such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files to be opened. The Nokia E7 is simply the best of the best and with access to the Nokia Ovi Store it will still fresh, new and exciting thanks to application downloads over the 3G HSDPA Web browser. Between eating mince pies and unwrapping presents, App browsing and downloading on Christmas Day is always endless fun. Access to Nokia Ovi Store means such activities will be fulfilled with great pleasure.
The classic N series Nokia available in black, pink and silver is definitely the ultimate Nseries mobile phone.
If you looking for a smartphone with a faultless but sturdy camera for your Christmas celebrations then the N8 packs a 12 megapixel camera with HD recording for your festive memories.
The HD recording is the essential video-capturing tool featured by the Nokia with a terrific Carl Zeiss lens and xenon flash and of course Dolby Digital surround for your playback.
The Nokia N8 knows how to entertain very well with an integrated media player, vibrant 3.5Ã® display and the ability to play 3d games on your mobile phone.
