Nokia 3250 Review
Review: August 2006. Updated December 2007.
The Nokia 3250 smartphone is an excellent music player phone. It features
a unique twisting design that's intended to make the music player functions
of the device easy to access. The phone starts off with a conventional
keypad below the screen. Twist it once and the music player controls
become accessible. Twist it again and it's a 2 megapixel camera. Gimmicky
perhaps, but it works well enough and is fun too!
Let's look at the music potential of the 3250 first. The phone is supplied
with 128 Mbytes of memory and this is expandable up to 1 Gbyte - not
as much as an iPod, but enough for a few hundred songs. There's also
an FM radio with Visual Radio functionality (find out what song is playing,
who sings it, and other artist information). Sound quality is very high,
with audio features such as an equalizer, stereo widening, reverb and
bass boost included. Stereo headphones are supplied with the phone,
and there's a 3.5mm jack for you to plug in your own high quality headphones
if you prefer. The twisting lower part of the phone might be gimmicky,
but it does allow you easy control of your music and playlists. The
Nokia Audio Manager CD supplied lets you rip songs from a CD and transfer
them to the phone in MP3 format. USB mass storage functionality makes
it easy to transfer songs between your phone and a PC.
The camera is of reasonable quality, with 2 megapixels with a digital
zoom, but no flash unfortunately. The video camera is good, and can
record up to 1 hour of video. A video editor is included in the applications.
The display is a high quality active matrix screen with 262k colours
and a high resolution - not as good as the screens on the Nokia
N80 or N90, but as good as other smartphones
such as the N70 or N91.
Weight and battery life are typical for a smartphone. It's certainly
not a lightweight phone, but it weighs less than a phone plus an iPod!
Many smartphones suffer from reliability problems and can be slow accessing
menus - we are pleased to report that the 3250 seems to be mainly free
of these problems.
Overall this is a good combined phone & music player, with plenty of
extra features too. The 3250 has now been replaced by the 5700
Features of the Nokia 3250 include:
- Smartphone (Series 60 Symbian operating system)
- 2 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom
- Video camera (176 x 144 pixels, 15 frames per second, up to 1 hour
- Display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 176 x 208 pixels
- Music player (MP3, eAAC+, AAC+, RealAudio formats)
- Visual Radio

- Ringtone composer
- Voice Features: Enhanced voice dialing, Voice commands, Voice recording,
Integrated handsfree speaker
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, email (SMTP, POP3, and IMAP4 protocols)
- Applications: File manager, Organiser, Games, Downloadable Symbian
and Java applications
- Caller ID with image
- Memory: 10 Mbytes plus microSD card (expandable to 1 Gbyte)
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB 2.0
- WAP 2.0, GPRS class 10, EDGE class 10 - download up to 236,8 kbit/s

camera...and the pictures come out like a didgital camera when they
are shot outside!! nice snake game too!! lmao!!
Reviewed by Jamie Smith from England on 19th Aug
Ok, DO NOT READ ANY OTHER REVIEWS...ONLY MINE IS A TRUSTED SOURCE! Had
this phone for a week, i think its a great quality phone, camera is
a very high grade 2 meagapixel camera, takes clear, crisp photos. Video
recorder on the other hand is average, not brilliant but not bad. The
general functions of the phone are also very good, radio (and visual
radio), and a straight forward easy to use mp3 player, which i mut say
is very good sound quality when using the headphones. The Rotating keys
makes it fun to use the camera and mp3 player...the rotating feature
is also very stong and sterdy AND WILL NOT BREAK unless twisted with
force! The design is a bit "bricky" but it does have a sleek, sexy feel
and look to it and the rotating keys are always and added bonus when
you want to show off to your mates. Now the disappointing features...the
loudspeaker quality is not the best and is probably the reason why i
gave this phone 4/5 instead of 5/5...its not terrible but it doesnt
compare to the sound quality of the stereo speakers which you'll find
on the Motorola Rokr (my previous phone) but as i said before, the sound
quality when using the headphones is amazing! This phone is also the
3rd edition of the S60 smartphone series, so it will NOT accept previos
S60 software but there is a growing market of great S60 3rd edition
software. This phone will also NOT hold upto 750songs as it says in
the spec...when using a 1BG micrco SD card it'll hold approx 250songs
on high bitrate or 300+ songs on very low bitrate. I would like to know
though if anyone knows if the Nokia 3250 will be able to take the newely
released 2GB Micro SD cards? If it does it will give any music lover
more than enough space for all there music. Please could someone answer
my question at: email@example.com
Reviewed by Sumargo from Indonesia on 18th Aug
It is an excellent music player, but its 3rd generation Symbian operating
system made the phone goes nothing special. I've been surfing around
the net for months, searching any compatible software/application such
as office reader, photosafe, pdf reader and others that is compatible
to this phone but it's like you're searching for a needle sunk deep
in a worldwide ocean.

i was very disapointed with the new symbian of this phone,its soooooo

is very clear and looks much better than the pictures that i take.the
pictures are not clear and much worst than n70.U cannot take the pic

this phone looks chunky and safe, but has extremely fragile screen!
it cracked on the next day! just because top screen is to close to internal.
It is real disappontment, because noone can replace it at the moment.
Waiting already for 2 weeks...

This is an excellent mobile phone, it has a good music player, which
is though sluggish at browsing through the songs. Boasts an excellent
camera and the menus are way faster to use than in my previous Nokia
6600. The only thing I can't agree with is the price of the phone, I
think it's a bit pricey in comparison to equivalent phones in the market.
Oh yes, and the screen is easily scratched, so use a cover.

I am already on my 2nd 3250, the first one the voice speaker broke and
you could never hear me speak and the replacement one i got is now broke
as there is never any network coverage so i think the antenna is kaputt
and it likes turning itself off n on every few mins, plus bluetooth
linkup is rubbish it constantly loses your earpiece and creates allsorts
of probs. I must admit these faults aside i thought i had the perfect

hard - what with all the drive-by shootings, underage sex, and violent
rap music that makes yooouse kids wanna stab each other to death for
having a more pimp pair of shell suit bottoms. But come on, this ain't

works unlike the Korean sweat shop, reverse engineered, flashy but no
substance trash phones out these days.

I have been waiting for this phone 4 quite long. However, I am a little
bit disappointed with what I've got. The sound quality is not as good
as SE Walkman; all my Symbian software can't work on the new device.
There's also no Infrared port like the elder 3230. Sometimes the system
hangs and I can't even restart using the power button. The only solution
is to take off the batery!!! But at all, I like the rotating design
of the phone. Quite innovative!

Great phone on average but find that phone memory is too small and the
phone doesn't automatically revert to the memory card. As all contacts
etc are stored on the phone memory this reduces memory capacity and
eventually will not be able to transfer much by bluetooth at all. Apart
from that the phone is bulky and heavy. If you are wanting to download
most of your things from PC this will be great, but if you want videos/tunes
from friends phones look at a Sony!

Had this phone for a few days now and its great. It's fair;yeasy to

Sound quality is good, keys are eaasy to use unless you have exceptionally
large fingers. I've not had a Nokia for a couple of years, but I'm glad
to have gone back to one. It's maybe a little bit bulky, but the twist
mechanism is good and unique. I found it a little difficult to transfer
data, and the memory card is a bit fiddly. But overall this is a good
phone that does the job!

Typically another great phone from the boffins at Nokia, easy to use
with good features. I have had the phone for just 9 days and the screen
cracked whilst in my pocket, as someone mentioned in a previous review,
the main screen is too close to the top screen, so beware!!!!, i have
now been waiting 14 days on a new screen to arrive at my local nokia
repair centre as there is none available and it is not being fixed under
warranty, i guess a lot of people will be handing their 3250's back
to Nokia with knackered screens, so Nokia, i expect you will lose a
LOT of loyal customers over this. However the phone itself is excellent.

This phone is the bomb! I was looking at many different reviews and
some made me think twice about getting it, but it is amazing! Has everything
that is needed and the twist action for camera and mp3 is super. Dont
wait . BUY ONE NOW!!!!!!

Hmmmmm.. ITs a cool fone has gr88 features. cool design and mp3 is awesome
but the cons are that it can break up easily i had this fone for 10
days and juss a small shock on the screen of the phone cracked the screen.
the main screen is too close to the upper screen so it can break easily.

the phone is fantastic and ive never seen a phone which has almost all
required things for pleasure and work... keep it up nokia and continue
making nice phones like this
Reviewed by David from Scotland on 26th May 2006
Well, this phone has really exceeded all my expectations and then some
more. Gone is the sloth like operation of the old symbian phones and
in comes a much quicker system making navigation through all the options
- and there are loads - an absolute breeze. Sound quality fantastic.
Screen and camera are just brilliant and despite some reports to the
contrary I would not say that its a particularly "heavy" phone. Couldn't
believe I managed to get it on a sim free basis for less than £250.
An absolute bargain.

Well its a good fone..but with more cons.(Trust Me) I brought this fone
after reading all the reviews,,but later i found out.... Pros:Innovative
design,robust(dropped twice),cam good to use only in sunlight.USB can
be used as Removable mass storage(No PC suite needed)good stereo sound
from speakers. Cons:No flash,just 4X Zoom,that too worst,Phone heats
up when u talk for longtime,when charging,listening to mp3,scrappy headphones
which reproduces the wires sound,gets affected by magnetic interfernce(Beleive
me:-brought a magnetic pouch,but the fone automatically switches on
the camera,music player,unlocks automatically when i keep it inside
the pouch--disgusting)closes all the applications when u press red button.No
3rd party appz(wait for sometime)No call summary. Recommended:Go for

This fone is great. It has all the specs you need. MP3 Player everything.
I advise you to buy it straight away
Reviewed by Lexi from UK on 17th May 2006
Well I like the phone, and for all those who have it and don't like
it then its your own fault for buying it, there are thousands of reviews
that give you information from people who have bought the phone so there
is no excuse in buying it and moaning. Anyway, I think the phone is
great, wish it had a flash though. I also have Sony Ericsson K750i as
a spare, and they are both great phones. The Nokia 6230 is the worst
phone by far I think. Kept turning off and the video was awful. Thats
all haha! x

Just got my 3250 and think its great, had many different camera phones
in the past and this is good although could do with a flash. Music player
is good but better headphones could be supplied. no adaptor enclosed
with mine although i understand this is supplied by some retailers.
will just have to spend those few extra few pounds to enjoy the good
music. Radio would be better if the headphones didnt have to be plugged
in. Took a bit of setting up at first (internet connection etc) but
once done a thoroughly enjoyable phone.

What a Masterpiece! My friends were using SE Phones (like W550i,W800i,w900i,P910i,etc)from
long time all of us thought that no other company can compare to the
sound quality of SE, but nokia made it finally ! Sound Quality of Nokia
3250 is outstanding !!! Each n every track sounds so great that u will
never jump any track. Headphones were excellent n phone also has Visual
Radio too. Camera is also marvelous ! What a picture quality (512Mb
MMC Card isalso included with this )!!! U can definately go for this
phone believe me if u are looking for Great Phone go for it - U Will
Never regret !!!!!

As to the comment left by "G-Man" i have to say that in the box with

audio sources to it! Ipod earphones sound great on it, my bose earphones
are simply amazing on it and bang and oluffesn earphones are great!

This is an excellent music-phone. Unlike others it can recognize the
ID3-tags created by iTunes, which means it shows all available information
like Artist, Title, Genre, even the Composer of a song. The only thing
it doesn’t show is the Album-artwork, otherwise you could call
it a proper iTunes phone. Well done, Nokia, cause not everone’s
got a PC. The swivel works a treat, but you don’t have to turn
it to access the Music-Player, in fact putting the music-player on one
of the hot-keys is faster. Screen is big and bright. Resolution of 176x208
pixels could be higher (fonts are quite small) but I think that would
effect battery-life too much, which is about 3-4 days with good use.
It’s solid built, feels good to hold, a bit on the heavy side.
Brilliant thing is that you can stand the phone on any of the 4 sides,
so turning it upside-down you can listen to your tracks via loudspeaker.
Only gripe is that the supplied headphones are a joke, but you can use
your own, cause it’s got a 3.5mm plug. 2MP Camera is very good
even though flash is missing. It runs the latest version of the Symbian
OS, which means the interface is completely customizable and you can
add applications. Bluetooth is very fast on this phone, as is the USB2.0
cable supplied. Not much to moan about really. The dust-cover for the
headset- and USB-plug is not attached to the phone so can be lost very
easily. Accessing the tiny micro-SD memory card is very fiddly as Nokia
positioned the slot in-between the upper and the swivel part –
you have to turn it 90 degrees to access it. The joystick is a bit sturdy,
but you just have to apply more pressure. This phone comes highly recommended.
It’s a music-phone first of all, but it has got other tricks up
its sleeve to keep you interested.

Well This Phone is a unique by Design n features , all though i had
used all SE Walkman cells but one thing in nokia 3250 is over the top
and thats it supports almost all formats of AUDIO n VIDEO which lacks
in other brands havnt used camera yet but the sound quality is improved
and loud(but not with its own HEADSETS). Over All its a appreciating
effort by NOKIA to compete with Rivals Like SE W800i and onwards.

Im sorry guys but these idiots rating this phone as only having one
star, and saying that nokia hasnt produced any excellent phones are
wrong! They are obviously quite invidious characters that sooo worship
the likes of sony ericsson and motorola! And come on... their phones
are mostly very similar! With the same boring old features placed in
a new casing. This phone stands out from your normal everyday phone
with its classy swivel MP3 and camera! And i must say the pictures that
come from this are glorious! When linked to your computer they have
depth and clarity! The sound is superb especially through earphones!
(but not throught the ones given with the phone) Its layout, and highly
sophisticated features makes this phone a must have! Ignore the other
pompous negative reviews!

responding to taylor... mate what good headphones? the phone doesn't
have a standard 3.5 mm jack so you have to use the bundled nokia headphones?
and they are nowhere near as good as an ipod with sennheisers. other
than that i would have to say that it look immensely cool and the rotating
function although a bit gimicky probably solves the problem of the kepad.
i write this as a sony ericsson owner and although the SE walkman phones
are probably better (being partly sony and all) this phone is serious

If you want a music phone this is not the best phone actually..i have
to admit that nokia will never be able to produce a phone that have
a good sound quality...even though it says that this is a music phone..the
sound quality from those sony ericsson walkman phone(W800i and so on)
can easily beat this phone sound quality..as for motorola ROKR E2..the
sound technology has far past the sound quality from this phone..frankly
speaking..this is a pathetic phone..there's no way nokia can beat sony
ericsson and motorola in inventing a music phone..All those comments
before(up) are all from the Nokia loyal customer..so they never stop
praise all new nokia phones even though they knew the quality are average
and sometimes below average...stop it guys!!..be honest to yourself
and try different variety of new phones from other brand especially
from sony ericsson and motorola.. i promise you won't be regretting
it because you will realise how advanced they are especially in terms
of sou nd technology!!chow.

This phone is absoloutly awful, it looks a normal size but is FAR to
big, they keys are to close to each other and they make a creaking noise.
The camera qulity is not up to scratch, my brothers W810i is far better.
As for sound quality its nothing sepcial either the 6280 is by far greater,
allthough it is fairly loud. The twisting bit at the bottom loses its
fun after about an hour, and could barely keep a baby amused. I'm getting
rid of mine straight away and getting a SE W810i instead a great phone.
Unfortunatly Nokia seem to have lost there way and in turn have lost
themselves a customer!
