With that out of the way, let's talk about the phone. This phone is of the same dimensions as all 3500 series phones are. The phone weighs in at a comfortable 3.7 oz. and feels very good in your hand. Nokia has a placed a small rubber sticker on the back for you index finger to rest while having a conversation.
The first thing that you'll notice about this phone is its weird key-pad. For those who have not seen a picture of this phone, Nokia has grouped the "2" & "5" keys into one button, as well with the "8" & "0." It's a little weird at first, but after a while it becomes natural pressing the top for "2" and the bottom for "5."
The screen is excellent, and I mean EXCELLENT. It's 96 x 65 pixels, and can support up to 4,096 colors. Compared to my SE T300, this screen does very well in bright conditions, as well as in dark. For those wanting a comparison between the T300/T68x screen, this one is about the same size, but sharper and produces a better picture.
Sound quality is good, it's not bad, and it's not great. I'm not exactly sure how you can compare sound quality between phones, they all operate on the same network, my only real comment is that the sound is of the same quality as my T300, M46, and V60g.
WAP is fast, very fast. My GSRP connection just flies on this phone compared to my old T300. My only peeve is that you can't set the font size, both in WAP and in general. This phone displays four lines of text, but could easily do six.
The menu are not as “user-friendly” as the Nokia 3390, and is taking me a lot longer than I would expect to get them down. Again, one of the biggest features that is missing on the Nokia 3595 is adjusting the text size.
All in all, this phone is pretty good.
-Excellent Color Screen
-Good size, not too small, not too big
