Nokia 2730 Classic

The Good 3G connectivity for speedy Web browsing; menus are easy to navigate.

The Bad Poor controls; low-spec camera; small screen.

The Bottom Line We like the Nokia 2730 Classic's 3G connectivity and simple menus, but the user experience is hampered by stiff buttons and dodgy build quality in places

Times have changed, and the penny-pinching shopper now has a huge range of decent options available. The Nokia 2730 Classic, for example, is a 3G phone that's available for free on a £10-per-month contract, £50 on a pay-as-you-go deal, and about £70 SIM-free.

No school like the old school
The 2730 is an archetypal Nokia handset, with a sturdy, elongated, candybar frame. Around half of the phone is taken up by an alphanumeric keyboard, navigation button and other controls. It's surprisingly chunky, at 14mm thick.
