I bought the Nuron two years ago. I bought it for texting and calling. Here's what I've found.
The camera is pretty good for a phone this cheap.
It offers apps..
Call quality is fairly good.
However, I've found this phone to be very VERY problematic.
It freezes. I've never used the web nor downloaded any apps, but it freezes just about every day. When I'm texting and I receive a call, it buzzes and won't let me push any buttons, not even power off the phone. I have to pop out the battery, put it back in, to turn it back on and call the person back. I've also had this happen when not even using my phone.
Battery Life. I have to charge this phone EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.
Start up. It takes about three minutes to start up. And considering the freezing problem, I have to start it up a lot.
Touch Screen. The touch screen is slow and sluggish. You have to use your nail or press really hard to get it to do what you want. It is not at all like an apple touch screen.
Overall, this phone is slow and sluggish. It malfunctions and it not worth your money, even if you don't spend much at all.
This phone is not at all user friendly. It requires repetitive button pushing to do what you want it to do. Example: You have to confirm the text you are writing, and then send. There are too many extra steps that are totally unnecessary. It has very few features and the screen has a weird setup for a smart phone because it is so thin and tall. My daughter broke this phone and I wasn't even upset. It's inexpensive, but wasn't even worth that to me.
have not use it yet because i didnt have a charger and the phone is not unlock. i was force to pay for it because i did not want to ruin my reputation as a buyer....also too many scratches
i love the phone but could not use it for att try to ask seller to request the code butto provide he dotn want to help me out, he offer to refund money back.The deal is not the money just conviennie dont have time for refund this and that but i guess that ok
I am new to the touchscreen technology, but I fell in love with the Nokia Nuron at a T-Mobile store. The touch screen was easy to use, easy to navigate and was pressure sensitive to any touch, allowing the user to use fingers, fingernails or a little pen.
I bought the phone brand new, and it is slick. (Literally) It slid from my fingers easily, but the rubber casing T-Mobile sells easily solved that. It's just another $20.
After a month of owning it, the touch screen is not as receptive as it was. I changed protective screen covers and shut it off nightly so it had time to "reset." At times, the touch screen will not work at all, and I am left to wonder if it's going to start working again.
I cannot imagime what the phone is going to be like after another month. $150 is too much to spend on a phone that is tempermental after 3 weeks. The phone is adult owned, and is not dropped or taken to the waterpark or other things young phone-owners do.
In conclusion, buy the protective rubber cover and treat this phone like it's gold. It will work for you when it feels like it. :)
