Having clumsy "fat fingers" I got my son to do most of the setting up. Within less than a week found it very easy to use other than the 4-way button which I've almost mastered but stlll have to do that slowly to avoid mis-keying. A good buy.
This is a lovely little KaiOS phone with many more options than series 30+ nokia phones like the 215 4G,220 4G or 225 4G.
- Backlit keypad, great for use in the dark.
-Tactile keys, decent spacing and nice to write messages on. That blank row beneath the keys looks odd but it means the keys are not at the bottom of the phone, making it less likely to be dropped whilst texting or dialling.
- Loads of options thanks to KaiOS with wifi, bluetooth, hotspot, VoWiFi (My smartphone can't do this!) and yes you can increase the text size to large! It runs WhatsApp too.
- Predictive text is present but disabled by default. This is great as many a cheap feature phones lack predictive text.
- Smudge free plastic casing, much better than the fingerprint/grease magnet otherwise known as the Nokia 225 4G.
- Facebook & Website browsing in general is a chore. You have to scroll webpages using the 4-way pad. It's like this on all feature phones however.
- Google Maps doesn't transmit audible directions - How are you supposed to use it in driving mode ?
- I keep hitting the top right key under the screen to go back, I don't know why but guess I'll learn to stop this over time.
- The power button being on the top of the phone above the screen. It's odd given that Nokia has used the hang-up key for a while now to turn on/off phones.
- So far I've not found anyone selling TPU (gel) bumper casing for it, I always buy these to protect my phones from bumps and scrapes.
- Low resolution camera (0.3MP). I don't understand why Nokia doesn't just put a 5MP or higher in these feature phones, I'd pay a bit more if they did.
