Look Arround Nokia 3250

Nokia 3250 is a phone specilly design for whom those love in entertainment.With abilty to play so many type of music format,it also has a cool 2 megapixels camera and of course has a video function.Not like other Nokia phone,it has a special designed when the lower part of the phone can be twist from normal mode to music player mode.Simply cool,isn’t it?

This model was manufactured by Nokia and has released April 2006.It is build in same plartform with N91 under Xpress Music family.That is mean that 3250 is specailly made as music player(I think Nokia try to face a batlle with Sony Ericsson’s Walkman phone).This model I think more similar to Sony Ericsson Walkman Phone,W810i in part of shape and design.Except,W810i cannot be twist as Nokia 3250.I’m not going to compare both the model,but just to see which model Nokia 3250 is similar to.Look to the picture below.

Designly look,both model look same.But the size,Nokia 3250 is a bit bigger than W810i.But the mainly aim for those two model is hanphone music player.W810i is family of Sony Ericsson’sWalkman handphone while Nokia 3250 as part of Nokia Xpress Music.Accidentally,the time of releasing those two model is almost same in date.The price?I’ve ever survey those two model in my area,it is has no big gap.the function also almost same,both has 2 megapixels camera,quality of sound both really,which one would you choose?

My First Impression On Nokia 3250

As I said before,Nokia 3250 is not my aim point phone.But, I attracted to Nokia 3250 when I buy Ering megazine.I buy this megazine actually to made some compare several phone (including Sony Ericsson K750i and Nokia 6680) and of course to change my old phone…haha…At that time nokia 3250 is the newest Nokia phone.But something special I see on this model,it can be twist.Like Nokia N90,but I think twisting Nokia 3250 is more easier than N90 one.

My first looking on Nokia 3250 is not the function itself,but design it has.I like that type of design which is when to use camera and song player function just twist it.Cool when you twist it in camera mode,you’ll see it like a camera digital,because when you going to camera mode the viewfinder screen is horizontal,it like using camera digital.really cool,isn’t it?

When the model is going music player mode it is look like a big mp3 player.Just simply twist Nokia 3250 from communication mode to music mode about 180 degree youl get the 3250 in music mode with easy basic function,with play/pause,stop,forward and rewind button.It is easy.
On that time,I just thinking only Nokia 3250 phone and still find how it rel looking.I’m going to the city (not Tandek…hehe….) to find that type of Nokia model.And I’m want to make survey other phone to.I’m find a really good phone combine with really good price.As a result,I finally found Nokia 3250 at one phone shop.I’m try to rotate and twist the phone several time and it just 115 gram I think,not as Nokia announced,130 gram.I’m comfort with it shape,weight and size.

Function?I think it is great for a entertainment lovers.Especially in music function,not just the navigation key is easier to manage,but the sound are really good quality.Let me tell you back,this model is under Xpress Music Nokia,junior of N91.Even if the design were innovate from Nokia 3230,I think it is far more good than Nokia 3230 in this aspect,sound quality.Just the navigation,menu key were same to several feature.Nokia work for music lover.
Without hesitation,I just take it back (of course I buy it) and finally I got my target phone.My Nokia 3250 is silver in keypad and screen frame colour.There are just four optional colour of Nokia 3250 at this time I write this page.Maybe on the future,the optional will be more wide.

Turn Arround All Nokia 3250 Side

All Side Of Nokia 3250 Design

With size in length 103.8 mm,width 50 mm,thickness 19.8 mm and weight 115 g,it is not really big phone compare to other phone on same platform like N91,N80 or N71.The shape of the phone is pleasent to be hold.The thickness were medium but for me it’s not bothered me anymore.If you see the back of the phone,you will see four button which can be use to play/pause,forward,rewind and stop button in music player mode.Also,it can be use in camera mode to capture picture or a video.In normal mode (communication mode) it is like other phone,but as you know it can be rotate as shortcut to camera mode and music player mode.

While you going in camera mode,you can use the object viewfinder in horizontal.The camera lens is placed in below part of the phone,on left side.You not just can use the camera to taking picture in front of you,but it can act as a mirror if you twist the camera facing to you.This function make you easy to take picture yourself.The camera which is has 2 megapixels camera will satisfied you if you’re not high demand in camera function.

Actually,Nokia 3250 were a new innnovation from Nokia 3230.That is why you can see the menu and navigation key are really same.But there are so many part of those two phone have a big difference.I’m comfort in using Nokia 3250’s keypad than Nokia 3230’s keypad.For example,keypad of Nokia 3250 is more soft than Nokia 3230.Also,the the camera place both of the model is different too.Nokia 3230 camera placed in back of the phone over the top,while a camera of Nokia 3250 is placed over the low part of the phone,side of left the phone.

The USB connection (pop-port connection) is located on right of the phone.The connector prt also is use to connecting a headset when listening to music privately.While you heard to music in loudspeaker,the speaker phone is located in low part of the phone (it is under the phone).The quality of sound were very high rate for me.Of course,Nokia 3250 is a Nokia music phone like N91,N80.But the quality of the sound will decrease when the volume is 80% to full volume,not like Nokia N91,the sound still good even the volume is full.The top of the phone is a power button or profile and memory card removed shortcard button.Press once,the shortcut will appear or press and hold the buttton the phone will off.

Memory card of the Nokia 3250 can be found when you twist the lower part of the phone about 90 degree,and you can found the memory slot.Nokia 3250 has a Hot Swap Slot.Which is mean,the model don’t need to removed the batttery to removed the memory card.Even the internal memory of Nokia 3250 only 10 MB,it can support 1GB microSD memory.

When you twist the phone,you will be able to use two mode.Twist 90 degree going to camera mode.Twist 180 degree will going to musi player mode.In camera mode,a shortcut button to take a picture is a play button.To zoom in the image,use forward button while you zoom it out,just press rewind button.While the phone on camera mode,you can take a video by push the navigation key to the right.Use play button to start record and stop button to stop recording.To zoom in or zoom out,just press forward or rewind key.
The music key on Nokia 3250 use a basic button to play music.To play or pause a track,press play/button,to rewind or forward to the next track press rewind or forward buttton once.While a track is playing,press and hold forward button will forwarding track and,press and hold the rewind button will rewarding the track.

Nokia 3250 Display

Nokia 3250 menu as like many other Nokia s60 can being choose whether as grid or listing viewing.While on standbye mode,you can choose to on or off the standby mode.The display is use as a shortcut to the menu while on a standby.The themes are changeable,according to what contain in memory card or phone memory.The first time I got Nokia 3250 in my hand, there are five kind of themes,three available on a memory card while two on phone memory.

The track is sort by so many type,from all track,genre,artist,track list,composer and album.As a music phone,it has the equalizer function to being choose like rock,pop,classical,H2-0,jazz and even make your equalizer yourself.This is available in audio setting.Beside that,you could also choose audio reverb effect such as alley,small room,medium,big and large room or you just off it.You can off or on the bass.

It also has a basic phone organizer,plus it is a smartphone (I don’t really know what smatphone term to define is) surely it is more advance in organizing something like to sign that a day has an important event.The converter software also contain to convert measurement such as yard to meter,and so on.Everyone whom love travelling internationally don’t need to define time by seaching accurate time manually.You just go to menu> organizer> clock and push the right key> option and add city.
