With the continuous emergence of cheap but good phones in the market, Nokia couldn’t have been left behind. The Nokia 2730 classic is an evidence of just that as a part of the three part cheap phones series. The best thing about these phones is that they usually come with advanced features at a price as cheap as 25 euro a piece! Yes, you heard it right. It is much better than your usual low-end phone, with 3G data speeds and a 1GB microSD card in the box.

Some of the main features of this phone are a Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, Dual-band 3G, 2.0" 262K-color QVGA display, 2-megapixel fixed-focus camera, S40 user interface, 5th edition, Stereo FM radio with RDS, Standard 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth (with A2DP) and microUSB port, Hot-swappable microSD card slot (2 GB supported, 1GB included), Ovi Store, Ovi Maps and Ovi Share.
These things come with their price of course, and this phone is no different of course. So some of the negative things that we have noticed in this mobile are a small display with poor viewing angles and sunlight legibility, nobody wants an S40 interface in their mobile anymore these days, stiff clicking controls and keypad, questionable build quality, no smart dialing.

As the 2730 classic is cheap with functions almost at par with the better phones of the lot; it is likely to enjoy a great demand among people due to this very fact. The specs are not much of a hassle as well due to which the reviews do not take a lot of time and it’s almost everyone’s favourite mobile to review. The 2730 classic screen is a QVGA two-incher, the viewing angles are quite limited and the sunlight legibility is poor. Under the screen is the traditional Nokia navigation deck – a D-pad surrounded by two soft keys and two call buttons.


The Nokia 2730 classic is has been inspired by the very original, Nokia 6700 classic, which is an awesome phone to have and to hold. While we are very much fond of the Nokia 6700 classic, unfortunately the same can’t be said about the Nokia 2730 classic. You just have to read the review to spot out the differences yourself.
