Nokia 108 Mobile Phone
Allow me to introduce you to my new phone:
Isn't it simply beautiful?
A few months ago, my not-very-smart-smart phone broke. It had served me for three long years and, even though its facilities were limited, it had still totally and utterly done my head in! And so, I decided to ditch the technology all together and buy this beauty for the grand price of £9.99.
Let me start with the negatives for this phone:
- Firstly, it is just a little too complicated for my tiny brain. There are four buttons that, between them, do just about everything. Unfortunately, remembering which one does which is rather difficult.
- The predictive text (which I am yet to work out how to turn off) is a little on the dense side of things. It considers that I am more likely to use the word nun than mum.
And then to the positives:
- The battery life on this thing is insane! I've managed two and a bit weeks so far on a full battery. In that time, it hasn't jammed or crashed once.
- It is so light. I hate those massive slates of phone that don't properly fit in your pocket without creating a rather inappropriate bulge. This one slides in nice and neatly and leaves plenty of room in a diddy bag for everything else.
- I am loving the absence of the internet. It was useful sometimes to be able to google things and it meant that I didn't have to end conversations as soon as I walked away from my laptop. But, honestly, I don't mind. I like the freedom of just dumping my phone anywhere without feeling compelled to check it.
- By far the best feature about this phone, aside from the rather handy torch, is the talking clock. Siri, move over- it makes me giggle. And the alarm clock is so sweet, "Time to get up" it says, every morning, without being too loud.
In short, I love this phone. I love ditching the technology and just going back to the basic call/text facility. And I dare you, dear reader, to do it too!
