Nokia 3200 review

 Review: January 2004  

Last updated October 2004


In a nutshell: The "cool feature" of the Nokia 3200 is that you can create your own custom covers, using photos or your own design or artwork.


The Nokia 3200 has an integrated digital camera, which you can use to take snaps, send to friends, download to your computer, or print and use to make your own cover design. The 3200 also has a built-in FM radio, as well as support for wallpaper, polyphonic ringtones and Java games, making it a good all-round fun phone.

Overall the phone offers a surprisingly large range of features. Apart from the quality of the camera itself, which is really very poor, the only things that Nokia could have improved are the ease-of-use of the keypad, and in common with most other Nokia phones, the poor colour resolution. 4096 colours is not really adequate for a camera phone. This is really a toy camera phone, and the new 3220 is a much better choice provided that you don't need the built-in radio.

Nokia 3200 features include:

  • High resolution display (128 x 128 pixels)
  • 4096 colours
  • Integrated digital camera (352 x 288 resolution)
  • Custom "design your own" covers
  • Built-in stereo FM radio
  • Polyphonic ringtones
  • Picture editor
  • Predictive text input
  • MMS (max 100kb per message)
  • Java games + 2 built-in games
  • Wallpaper
  • Flashlight
  • Speed dialling
  • Handsfree speaker
  • Voice recorder (1 minute capacity)
  • Alarm, calendar, notes, calculator
  • WAP/GPRS/HSCSD with XHTML browser
  • Pop-port™ interface
  • Size: 108 x 45 x 21 mm
  • Weight: 90g
  • Battery standby: 150 - 300 hours
  • Battery talktime: 2 - 4 hours
  • Tri band
  • Vibration alert

I just have to say that this is my very first and only cellphone. I have faith in the Nokia brand because this phone is still with me staying strong for over 7 years now and going. I got it in the start of middle school and now I am in college. Although I must say that it's a little outdated for me because I need more room for my text messages.

I've had this phone for years. It's a cheerful little brick; it tells the time, wakes you up in the morning and you can also phone people on it. It's all I need from a phone, and for 25 quid five years ago, (including 15 call credit), I don't think you could find better value. It has good battery life and I like the simplicity of the menus. The camera isn't great, but I don't need fancy games or screensavers, and if I want to take a picture I'll use my proper camera. The buttons are a good size, and I got used to their slightly quirky arrangement long ago. There are just 9 oval buttons in total, with the top and bottom of each behaving as two separate buttons. Sounds odd, but functionally it is a very comfortable phone to use. It also seems very robust. I've dropped it umpteen times and it just refuses to die. I admit this phone might not be to everybody's taste, but it gets a big thumbs up from me.

The operating system is HORRID, the camera is bad beyond comprehension, the calendar is completely bogus, they even messed up the sms sending. I have no good words to say about this phone... well, maybe the radio is OK. Please, steer clear of this one. I'm from Finland myself and I tried to love it because it is a Nokia but it is just plain bad.

This was my first phone which I brought back in 2004. Four and a half years onwards, it's still functioning well and providing me with everything I need. It's also very durable and is yet to fail me. It may not be the most flash or have the most functions. But it is reliable despite being dropped so many times and pretty much scratch proof =]

I've had this phone for over 2 years now and I have to admit when I got it i thought it was the coolest thing on earth! I have to admit the changable covers are cool but come with a major downside - they're blimin' fiddly and annoying after about 2 weeks. The camera is rubbish - it can't zoom and if you take a picture of a hand moving very slowly all you will get is a fuzz. However dispite it's rubbish qualities I have had it for 2 years and not once has it broken or done anything weird! Nokia phones are known to be able to last it's while but once you've had the phone for about 2 months it does get pretty boring. The voice recorder is pretty rubbish, and it hasn't got bluetooth so you cannot get any music on your phone. Furthermore the memory is pretty rubbish, it can't even hold one song, and you are limited to the amount of pictures you can have on it. I would reckomend this phone to people who wish to use it for texting and calling but nothing more. On the whole a pretty rubbish phone.

This is a very strong phone which has lasted me for three years!! The camera is very poor but i would recommend getting a seperate camera from a phone anyway. It is a very easy to use, reliable phone and the only problems I have had is that one button dosnt work very well anymore (ok if you press it hard) and that it is starting to cut out when phoning people if the battery is about less than half charged- but what do you expect after 3 years? Brilliant, it looks pretty old school now but would be ideal for someone who wants a strong, easy to use phone!!

This phone is great if you want something a little bit different. It's really boring when everyones phone looks the same (like the pink Motorola RZR). The camera is a little bit rubbish, but honestly, if you want a brilliant camera you should get a camera, not a phone. The fact that you can zoom in AFTER you've taken the picture, and not before is quite annoying. I never use the radio, but I'm sure it's quite good. The ringtones aren't that brilliant, but as it has a voice recorder, you can set them as your ringtone. All in all a good phone, and it's more stylish than the later model - 3220.

Not-so-bad of a phone,that's what it is. It has got FM radio, flashlight which is very bright, and a oh-so-poor camera. Although it's seem complete enough for an entry-level phone, but the design doesn't have any distinction except for those of you who can make a design for its cover. I'm a designer myself, but I didn't find it quite fun to design the cover. don't know what to do with it now, maybe sell it someday.

I've had this phone for almost a year on the Virgin network. I have had no problems with it at all and it does it's job. But no one can deny the camera and screen are really rubbish when it comes to taking and displaying pictures! But apart from that the phone is fine. A lot of people complain about the memory space that it is very small, personally I don't take many pictures (what's the point with the rubbish camera and screen?) so if you're into your pictured and videos you may want to invest in a different phone. But in general it's a pretty good basic phone.

A decent, fun first phone. Camera is pretty crappy, but the phone is easy to navigate, and you get used to the different shaped keys. The radio isnt that good, and the colour screen isn't as decent as some of the other similar phones, but comes with decent games and the changeable covers are always fun. Poly ringtones are good and u can download more games and ringtones off GPRS connection. No composer which bugged me a bit first, but aparently most poly phones dont have it. Perfect size, not to big or small. The 'plastic' look when i first recieved the phone made me think it was badly made, but after 18 months of having this phone, it has never caused me any problems. Comes with flashlight, which i found useful, and slightly amusing ;) can store pictures with contacts and many numbers, emails and adresses under the same name, which makes it easy to find people. Voice recorder is pretty bad quality, but u no it works, so no complaints here. Can store quite a number of photos which is great, so u dont run out of space that easily. Over all a great little phone.

When I first looked at this phone my enitial thought was that it looked trendy and 'fun', however, when i got it back home I charged it up, registered and started to explore the phone. The buttons were unusable, I found it so hard to navigate my way round the keypad, as for the camera quality, well what quality? It was a real let down, the night mode didn't work properly and when I took a picture in normal day light it was fuzzy and out of focus! I bought the phone on vodaphone and I'm not sure if it was the network or the phone but I could not get a signal, and I live in london! Although the phone had it's faults, I have not given it a one star rating because it had some strengths. I like it's design apart from the un-user-friendly keypad, it was a fun and young design, the phone had a very good voice recording compared with the Samsung E300 which is absolutly usless! Ok, this isn't Nokia's best phone, infact it's not worth the 70 I paid for it about a year ago, however, I would recomend this to anyone who just wants to ring people on there phone because if you want it for texting and camera use it's usless!

I have had this phone for what seems like an eternity - for the first few weeks the buttons were a novelty but now they are just PLAIN ANNOYING. Also after about the first 3 weeks the camera was more grainy than before, I have just taken it back to the store because its the biggest piece of junk i have ever owned - the speakers broke for what seemed like no apparant reason, the radio although good quality has to be plugged into a headphone before its able to play, when i bought a mobile phone with radio i bought it so i wouldnt have to carry my headphones with me everywhere. Unless you are nocturnal do not buy this phone as apart from being not able to see the screen with anymore than a streetlamp shining on it, you will probably be too embarrased to go out with it. Next time i will buy something a LOT better.

This phone has not a very good camera i give you that but its also good in ways that make up for it. The making your own covers addition was a little hard at first and i ended up cutting them out with scissors most of the time! with only 3 very good ringtones but it has a good voice recorder which is good. The games are proper phone games, just like snake the game bounce is a simple highly addictable game and you can play it almost anywere. overall this phone is a very good phone but only if your young and like to have fun!!! katie, expirienced nokia user

I ve had 2 Nokia 3200s. The first one broke after I dropped it stepping out of the car. Although the plastic covers fitted together again. The switch at the top did`nt. Unfortunately the switch is very delicate, and can break off while pushing it too hard! For those who just want a `phone`, then the 3200 is a good phone to use, but if you want more, it can be limited. I think the camera is quite basic, and the screen is quite small to make out the picture. The pictures you send over to the internet are of better quality. Dirt, dust and fingerprints can get a tad anying after you take apart the plastic covers, and having to for ever clean the screen. Overall this is a good value for money. If you wnat to look for the mod cons such, I think you should look elsewhere. This is a mid range phone that does the various basics.

I bought this phone last year, because the design appealed to me. THE CAMERA IS NOT GOOD. Battery life is iffy.The screen is hard to view in bright light. The plastic on the front and back is not ideal as it scratches easily. And, as said before, it does get boring quickly. To be fair, you do get used to the buttons, and they do respond well, and the ringtones are loud. Overall, a nice little phone, but Nokia have made the 3200 with too many faults.

Do not get this phone for it's camera. The Nokia 3200 appealed to me for the look of it and it's camera. However, it gets boring quickly. Although it lacks features such as bluetooth and a GOOD camera, it it is good for talking and texting. The loudspeaker is useful. The keys at first look odd and difficult to use; You will get use to using them. Overall, I am pleased with the phone, but if you want it for features I would not recommend it. PS: Does anyone know how to use the cover cutter ?....!

This is a very basic phone.. When I connected it to my pc, it was recognised as "Fashion Phone" !! Which was quite amusing. It doesn't allow you to set individual ringtones for each caller in your phone book. This phone doesn't have an internal modem. I wanted to develop some J2ME apps, and was dissappointed to realise this. Most/all other phones in the Nokia range did have an internal modem. If you want to buy a USB cable to connect your phone, don't get ripped off buying the DKU-5 Nokia cable... get a cheap USB to IrDA (infrared) port instead.

I thought it was rubbish when I first got it. But then I found out that I can get plain normal covers and different buttons. The radio is pretty cool and the games arnt too bad. But what really gets me is that you cant have a screen saver! Its just the time. Thats real poor. I would still rather something different but I'm stuck with it for 2 years. hurrah. Optus wont even swap it for something different. Really invest in something just a bit better.

This phone is suprisingly at an affordable price. It has a built in camera and a pretty background.

its VERY much like the 7250i but has a few additional features. i'v currently got this phone. the camera quality is like 7250i. . you can change covers. it has voice recorder. but apart from that. its another 7250i. save money for something else. not bad though. there are better phones available for the same price.

The buttons are take a bit to get used to, the camera is good enough for a phone, (if u want something better buy a camera), the only problem i have with it is that the amount of memory/storage (1.1MB) is too small, and the fact that the radio requires the headset to be plugged in even with loudspeaker on is ridiculous and a nuisance.

It would have been a better phone if it had a good quality image.The memory is extremely low and no memory card to cope up with this.And I wonder why people say they can only save 20 images when I can save around 40 to 50 of them...To sum it all up,it has very low memory,bad images,handy flashlight.But it's fairly good

Well its a great fone but it as some annoying little features,like only being able 2 store 20 pics before its full,and thats without games and ringtones! The camera is slighlty bad,it has about only 4500 colours which is rubbish for a camera fone.On the good side its a fun,easy to use and looks really good.One for the ages 10-13 bracket.

I had this phone for 3 months, then sold it and got a motorola v300. The nokia 3200 is a good fun phone, more suited to the younger person, great features, fm radio was an excellent extra, making ur own covers..great idea for kids. The only down side was the memory and the picture quality. So if ur big into games on ur fone or taking lots of pics then u cud b better off looking for something else. But in general found no faults with this phone.

Overall this phone is alright, its worth buying as it comes with many other functions such as FM Radio, Voice Recording, Integrated Camera etc for a reasonably cheap price. Although the camera can not be considered good, it isnt bad eithier (too slow). The buttons are weirdly shaped, but once your used to it then it should be fine and the memory is a too small... other than that the phone is a good deal

The nokia 3200's camera is quite poor as it only has about 4000 colours on it, however you can store loads of pictures on the phone. Many things, such as the FM Radio,cut out covers + voice recorder are great. The games are ok, though i dont really see the point of virtual me. I have to admit, i did have to return the phone after about 6 months as the screen had frozen, other than that i've had no problems. I would call this phone standard - nothing special!

The photo quality of the Nokia 3200 is sooooo bad!!! Also, the keypad looks cool, but it is very hard to use. I got this phone for christmas, but in about 3 months, I changed to the Nokia 6220. the photo quality of that is betterrr, but not amazing! Hopefully, for my birthday, I'll get the Nokia 5140! Dat fone is WICKID!!!! But I give the 3200 1 star cos I hate it!!!
