Nokia 1280 - Expert Reviews
Nokia has certainly lost its fervour and its position in the cell phone market, courtesy the rise of Android. There has always been a lot of criticism for Nokia not adopting the Android platform for its Smartphones but the company has been firm in its stand and maintained their Smartphone platform with Symbian. They have though gone with the Windows operating system with great vigour for some reasons and although the same does offer a alternate to Android, its following is still nowhere close to Android. But a lot of other powerhouse companies like HTC and Apple have not gone for the low range products but Nokia and Samsung are not alien to such segments. Nokia 1280 is another such example of a low range product with the device featuring a very small 1.36-inh of display. Yes, that is right, we never even thought that such miniscule screens were still being manufactured. The device weighs almost 82 grams and has a length of 107.2mm, a breadth of 45.1mm along with a height of 15.3mm. The display of the device is backed by the monochromatic graphic technology and has 96 x 68 pixels of resolution to back it up. Internal memory of the device is also as small as the device with the user getting a facility to store up to 500 contacts along with 20 dialed, 20 received, 20 missed calls information. But more than that if the user desires to store more, its better you buy a new device as there is no microSD card slot either. There is an FM radio facility by which the user can listen to the popular radio stations but other features like a music player and a video player are absent, so basically if one is looking for entertainment, the device is certainly not for him. One useful feature that the device does offer is the Flashlight facility but the device is not Dual SIM, trait that many other low end devices offer today. Battery though has always been the strong point for Nokia devices and same is the case with Nokia 1280. The device runs on the standard lithium ion battery of 800mAh that gives a formidable talk time of up to 8 hours and 30 minutes along with a standby time of up to 538 hours. Available in the colors of Black, Gray, Blue, Orchid, the device also gets exchangeable color shells. Apart from that, some other features offered by the device include a calender, a voice memo and a predictive text input.

Nokia 1280 has limited games and as far as applications are concerned, calender or a voice memo is all you get. Don't even start thinking of comparing the apps with Android apps.

Dimensions are almost same in both the handsets. Nokia 1280 has no support for a microSD card slot but Samsung Guru E1200 does support the same.
