Nokia 1100 review

 Review: March 2004  
 

Last updated October 2005

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: The Nokia 1100 is an entry-level phone, designed with simplicity and reliability in mind.

Compare prices | User reviews

 

One nice feature of the 1100 is its silicon keypad - easy-to-use and non-slip. The sides of the phone are also made of a non-slip material, so overall the phone is nice to hold and physically easy to use.

The 1100 does come with a few gimmicky features, such as a torch, but Nokia has mostly stuck to basic features, so reliability and user-friendliness should follow. If you're looking for something exciting, look elsewhere, but if you want a basic phone with excellent battery life, the Nokia 1100 is a good choice. The new Nokia 1110 improves on the 1100 in a number of ways.


Nokia 1100 features include:

  • Black & white display with selectable font size
  • Phonebook with up to 250 names on SIM card and up to 50 in internal memory
  • Distribution lists and concatenated text (SMS) messaging
  • Picture Messaging
  • Predictive text input for most European languages, Arabic, and Hebrew
  • Date and time screensavers
  • Built-in alarm and reminders
  • Stopwatch and countdown timer
  • Full-size animated screensavers
  • Two built-in games (Snake II and Space Impact+)
  • Automatic keyguard lock
  • Keyguard lock with security code
  • Flashlight
  • Mono ringtones with composer
  • Speed dialing for up to 9 names
  • Vibration alert
  • Dual band
  • Weight: 86 g
  • Size: 106 mm x 46 mm x 20 mm
  • Talktime: Up to 2 - 4.5 hours
  • Standby: Up to 100 - 400 hours

Here's someone still using this phone in 2014 :) The battery still lasts for a week despite being 11 years old (although its power is not what it used to be). Countless falls and knocks had gone unnoticed, although twice I've had to resort to some screwdriver work - the screen went blank and I had to take half the phone apart to bend back a metal plate that pushes the screen to its contact plate.

The plug-in charger doesn't rely on plastic click-in parts and the fancy SIM-card slot makes SIM replacement easy - both good long-term use features that I appreciate greatly. Replacing a phone because the charger doesn't snap on anymore is patently ridiculous and I can barely take out the SIM card out of most newer phones - neither is a problem with Nokia 1100.

As for everyday functionality - it feels as nice in the hand, is still as fast and responsive, the high-constrast screen is as easily viewable in full daylight and the buttons press as separately (even in a bulky case by a butterfingers like me!) as the day I got it. All these features are non-existent in new mobile phones, alas. I guess it's time to get a new battery.

I have a fancy smartphone but I specifically sought out a 1100 as a backup and so's to have a 'junkmail' PAYG mobile number to use with online companies that insist you relinquish your mobile number in order to register (No, I don't want marketing calls/sms thanks). So I thought I'll just get an old second hand classic for a tenner.

While the iconic 3310 has achieved cult status it's the subsequent 1100 that's really where it's at, being smaller, lighter and more energy efficient than it's now legendary predecessor.

The 1100 appeared in 2003 as smart-phones were emerging, however it was designed with the developing world in mind. The sealed up design protects against dust and dirt, and while I've seen its built in torch feature reviewed as gimmicky, one only has to experience a third world backstreet after dark to appreciate what a boon this can be.
Battery life is immense - potentially 16.7 days on standby... over TWO WEEKS!!
No surprise that this achieved the status of highest selling mobile phone, more than 250 Million units. Indeed it's presently mankind's most ubiquitous personal electrical device.
Perfect at what it it does!

This is a really brilliant phone if all you want is calls, SMS, maybe a few games and a clock/alarm/reminders. My 'proper' phone, a Samsung Galaxy Apollo, broke three weeks ago and I've been using the Nokia 1100 since then until I get round to fixing my Samsung. I find it a really great piece of design and the fact that it's simple, compact and has hardly any gimmicks is a real bonus for me. It took me back to a simpler time and I'd recommend it for anyone who's looking for a cheap does-the-job phone with a few games. Also, have a go at changing the ringtones - it infuriates my family but they're hilarious.

I have to admit its been wuite nice going back to basics, if only for a short while!

I know this is six years later, but I just love this phone and wanted you all to know there's somebody out there still using this charm. I've used a number of higher quality phones (BlackBerry, other QWERTY phones) but I just keep coming back to the 1100. It's basic, functional, and does it's job as a phone. I mean, it's a phone. Calling and texting, that's it, you know? The UI is extremely responsive. Everything is literally instant with no load times at all. I'm big on instant performance on a phone interface. The battery is great. If I carry a few textual conversations every so often with a short (under 3min) phone call, the battery will last about a good solid week for me. I don't need an Android phone or anything, so this is the best thing for me. This thing is about 8 years old and it's still going strong. I just recently replaced the housing (new antenna with that) and faceplate so it's just like new.

Oh dear, there are some illiterate morons leaving their own 'reviews' of this phone (not: dis fone) and other similar ones. Firstly, can I say that these people might find it useful to learn to read and write before you attempt the stance of a reviewer, let alone attempt to navigate a piece of modern technology. I will attempt to post a review of the Nokia 1100, based on the facilities I was more than aware it had prior to purchasing it. I mean, why on earth buy a phone, which DOESN’T have a camera, a hi-fi system, or a microwave oven, and then slate it for NOT having them. Only a complete half-wit would buy a phone like this knowing it didn't have these gadgets and then say that it is rubbish because it doesn't have them. Anyway, whether you are a Luddite, a technophobe, a prudent buyer, someone who values dependability ahead of 'toys' or just someone over 30, the Nokia 1100 will not disappoint. It is extremely well built, very durable and despite its tiny footprint it is very simple and precise to navigate and has an outstanding battery life if all you do is make calls and answer it when it rings. No, it doesn’t have an array of pointless gadgetry and that is why the battery lasts so long, no MP3 and the likes to run it down, so if making and receiving calls is high on your essential requirements of a PHONE, then look no further. Thankfully, Nokia are more than aware that there is still a large number of consumers who value the basics of a mobile phone and still cater for these people, unlike virtually all of the other manufacturers. The 1100’s are discontinued now, but are still available as new old stock in some places, but they are plentiful in decent used condition and sell for peanuts. A word to the wise though, avoid buying ‘generic’ replacement batteries from places such as eBay, as they are truly awful and a false economy and I speak from experience having lost my original and bought 2 of them. Nokia continue to sell basic phones and all seem to be good, but the 1100 is an exceptional phone, despite what the clearly brain dead have said on this forum and has everything a phone should have and nothing that it shouldn’t.

Simple and rugged phone. Mine fell from the first floor and came apart but when I put it back it worked. Again it got taken apart by the dog and got chewed up. I replaced the front cover and the batery and it worked. A motorbike ran over it and it still works. But it is outdated and cannot use it to register for banking services. Its good if all one does is make phone calls and basic messages.

I've had this phone for years and it's all I've ever needed because I don't talk for hours at a time nor do I do much texting. Although I can text if I need to, it's a bit time consuming. Even though it's an older style phone, I love it and I'm looking around to see if I can get ahold of another one, preferably new, but used in good condition is workable. I like mine because it doesn't have alot of gadgets to learn or fiddle with and it's very simple. I don't need anything more than this...

After three years of using this phone, I have only criticisms: (1) If the memory is too full to receive a text message, the phone gives a visual warning only: it doesn't ring or vibrate. This means that you may not learn that there's a message for you until several hours later. (2) The composer has no way to enter dotted lengths: 'e4. c8' must be entered as 'e4 e8 c8', and the difference is audible. For the rest I have nothing but praise: * Small phone, fits very nicely in the pocket. Noticeably smaller than the 3310 and its friends. * Large, easy-to-press buttons. * Rubber-mat keypad means no dust between the keys. * Excellent interface: Arrows for options, Select to select, Back for back. Even on the first day, I *never* got into a "which button should I press to escape?" situation. * Letters are large enough to read clearly, and also small enough to fit five lines on the screen. Well done, Nokia. * Sturdy: many drops, no breakages. It even survived submersion when I dropped it into the toilet while trying to get the butter off. (An long and amusing story that is not what you think. ;-) The point here is that the phone got better after a few days of drying.) * Little white LED torch in the top is very nice.

This phone is really good and especially love the snakes game. People prefer colour, but the mindless screen makes perfect sense. The phone might not look like the brand new ones, but the design fits through the ages and will keep fitting in for many years. It is not an embarresment to have this phone. Some say this phone will will stop working after a few months, well, people who buy the new ones, get embarressed of they have an old version, and this happens in like a month, making them want a new phone. The light comes so useful at times, really.

I bought this little phone cheap when I moved to the UK, because my previous phone was so old they couldn't undo the country lock on it LOL. £50 was the cost, but it came with £50 free airtime.. so the phone was technically free. I've had it almost 3 years now and it's still going strong. It's been dropped many times, suffered low temperatures in snowy weather and still it keeps on going. I have had a few unexplained power blackouts, where I've gone to open a viewed message and the phone has restarted, but in 3 years this has not happened a lot. It's light and a good size for all my pockets, even small ones. It's easy to use, and the battery life is excellent. I can go for several days without recharging when on holiday. Lastly, in terms of extra features, which aren't many on this very basic model, the flashlight comes in as one of the most useful features on any phone I've ever used. The beam is just strong enough to show me the footpath on completely dark streets or when I'm crossing the park in the winter months. I just love it!

This is a fantastic PHONE, with the emphasis on phone. That is what it does and it does it really well.

Their first, roughly, and significantly better than the 1110 with its over gimmicky icons etc.

For all those people that say this phone is horrible because it doesn't have all these wonderful features...did you read the box before you bought it? I needed a phone for when I was gone while the kids were in school in case there was an emergency. A phone is for calling people, not playing video games and downloading movies to. This phone works great for what it is supposed to be used for. If you want to do all that other stuff, then stay home and sit on your computer. You should be able to leave your house for a few minutes without needing to have all that stuff anyway.

bought off e-bay sim free after having numerous previous phones nicked due to their supposed desireability to the kiddy brigade - ew, it can play 50 cents at mega volume and annoy every one on the bus - or i can film my mates assaulting vagrants - congratulations muppets. an ipod is a better mp3 player, canon/fuji make better cameras and as for games, just grow up. hey guess what, my land line phone doesn't do any of the above either - its just a phone like this one - how refreshing.

You will either love or hate this phone. If you want a camera, mp3, color screen and 10000 other pointless features then this is not the phone for you. On the other hand, if your main aim in buying a phone is for *shock horror!* MAKING PHONE CALLS, then you'll love it. The best features are probably the price (£20-25), size/weight (small and light without all those cameras and things), build quality (feels tough, big, comfortable to use keypad) and the battery life. It has the same battery as the higher spec nokia phones, but without all those extra gadgets to power, so it keeps going for ages without charging. The torch in the top is also suprisingly useful, like when you drop your keys in the dark.

I've owned and traded many many models of cellphones over the past years and it always ends up that the simpler the cellphone, the better it is for me. A good cellphone should have one and only one practical feature: Reliability. That's where this Nokia 1100 stands out among its competitors. Remmber this folks: a cellphone was invented for calling and/or texting purposes. That's all... So, if you are looking for more bells and whistles, better just get a good compact Digital Camera, MP3 Player, Gameboy etc. I am often reminded of the lessons I've learned: KEEP IT SIMPLE. Sadly, the 1100 has been discontinued. By a stroke of luck, I was able to find a brand new one while shopping in a mall just a gew days ago. I never regret buying this handy little cellphone and I'm satisfied with its simplicity and dependability. God Bless.
