Nokia 2652 Review
No phone details were mentioned in the official press release and as far as I can tell, there are no new features, except that it comes in different colors, dark grey and pearl with white key mats. The review below is therefore based on what we know about the Nokia 2650.
The phone has a somewhat odd clamshell construction. The phone may be opened for an angle of almost 180 degrees and unfolded the phone looks like a beach chair. Not my kind of design, but maybe this makes the phone stand out from the crowd. The phones internal surface is made of rubber or soft plastic. According to Nokia the 2652 "builds on the success of the award-winning Nokia 2650".
According to Nokia the battery works for 2500 hours in standby mode and up to 3,5 hours the talk mode. Phone users report less than 150 hours of standby time and 40 - 50 minutes of talk time. The thruth should be something in between. Full charging takes 2 hours.
The keypad is standrard and has a white backlighting. Flashing LED light alerts on the outside of the phone to announce incoming calls and messages. Useful - maybe, cool - for teenagers, yes! The only flaw is that the keypad gets really dirty over a period of time.
The 128 x 128-pixel, 4096 color TFT display is acceptable for a low-end model. An external display would be nice and can be found on many other low-end phones.
Being an low-end phone, the 2652 comes with only basic Series 40 phone features such as calendar, calculator, alarm clock, countdown timer and stopwatch. The 2650 had 3 games.
You can store up to 250 names in the phone book. You can enter to 5 numbers for a name, which are primary, mobile, home, office, fax. E-mail address, web site url, post address and text note can be set as extra information to a number.
You can store upto 100 entries such as meeting, call, birthday, reminder and memo. A notification may be assigned to an entry. The to-do list allows you to create events with priorities high, normal and low.
User Opinions for the 2650
- The relaibility factor is good
- Very cool design
- Excellent battery
- Keypad keys were very hard to press
- Hard to text in a hurry
- Keypad starts to bulge!
- No Bluetooth or infrared to download stuff from PC
- LCD screen easily gets scratched

If you need a budget phone, the design appeals to you and the lack of features is not an issue, then consider.
