To wrap up, the Sony Ericsson Cedar is a charming, simple phone and appears to be another step in a green direction for Sony Ericsson. Not resting on the Greenheart theme, the phone also has an array of useful features such as a 3.5mm headphone jack and 3G. It wonâ?? t give a great online experience with a 2.2-inch screen and an un-intuitive browser, though the widget support is a nice touch to keep you connected. Another handset to consider is the Nokia X2 for an S40 alternative.
The Sony Ericsson Cedar is a classic candybar feature phone that's been given a shot in the arm to keep up with today's standards. Physically you've got the modern standards of a headphone jack and microUSB charging and on the software front you can browse the web, collect your email, view Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter, and find out where you need to go with GoogleMaps.
Home screen widgets
Overall, the Cedar is a good all-rounder that will appeal to those that want to keep their carbon footprint to a minimum or simply those that are after a bargain. This mid-range fearture phone is clearly not a smartphone, but then if you're after something affordable and functional then it's certainly worth considering. The elegant styling certainly gives it a boost, although it's ultimately let down by its irksome web browsing.
3G and Bluetooth connectivity
The Cedar is yet another likeable addition to Sony Ericsson's eco-friendly GreenHeart range, offering impressive functionality and attractive aesthetics for an eminently reasonable price. It's just a shame that irksome Web access and occasional social-networking issues spoil the overall impression.
Good quality music player software
Nokia hasn't really done a great deal that's wrong with the Nokia X3 Touch and Type. Making the S40 operating system touch aware breathes a bit more life into it, and there are some very positive features such as long battery life and good build quality. But at this pricepoint, the competition is fierce. Android already has its place firmly staked out, and we think it can only push Nokia harder as time rolls on.
A budget-conscious music phone with a mixture of touch and keypad input? The X3 hopes to appeal to a wide audience, and has the feature set to do just that.

sleek and stylish slide phone
Nokia X3. The Nokia X3 is said to be the latest launching from Nokia cell phones. It is the first series 40 based slider device which comes with Ovi store support.

This is accompanied by a front VGA (640 x 480 pixel) camera for two-way video calling, so the iPhone 4 isn't the only new handset with video calling.
The Nokia 6700 Slide is a very nicely designed, small format, slider handset. The front buttons are either large or constructed so as to be easy to hit, so that the keypad is hardly ever needed.
An affordable candybar phone with an excellent battery life, the Nokia 6700 offers a good choice of features including FM radio, a voice recorder and built-in GPS. The HSDPA phone supports downlinks to 10Mbps and uplinks of 2Mbps. The Nokia browser doesn't provide the best browsing experience but Opera Mini is pre-installed and is more enjoyable.
However the slide mechanism is pleasant enough and the phone sits nicely in the hand, although the keyboard could be a little big bigger for faster finger flicks when texting and the like.
Overall, this is a phone that might appeal to those that just want a simple phone, but we can't see why you'd have it over the classier and more stylish Nokia 6700 Classic.
The headphones plug in to the micro-USB socket, which is a fantastic change from the huge, breakable, proprietary socket that's often found on Nokia phones.
The 6700 Slide looks like a smartphone for the masses, with a good mix of technology you'll probably use and expensive tech you might not find you'll need.

The Nokia 6700 classic performs really well as being a phone as well – in-call quality is really good, voices sound loud, clear and realistic on either end of the line.
Alongside of the Nokia 6300, the Nokia 6700 classic features an overall design that's been streamlined and made even neater. It feels somewhat bulky, but we can live with that, because it's not every day that you can see such a high quality of workmanship.

excellent MP3 player
The only thing that might impress a consumer is the phone's metal casing. It is true that you pay a small price for what the phone has to offer, but there are other alternatives within the same price range that offer much more than the 6700 slide, such as the E5 or the C5.
Rugged, long lasting, and perfect for people who don't do more than text and talk
I've owned this phone for nearly four years and I love it! I've dropped it and soaked it, and it still works perfectly. It has lots of nice features like a notebook function for jotting notes to yourself, a camera (although the photos aren't as crisp as with more hi-tech phones), alarm clock, calculator and stop watch. The original battery (from Verizon) didn't last more than a year, but replacements are inexpensive, and I adore this phone overall.
Solid ergonomic design
To wrap up, there are very few surprises with this handset, though it comes in a bit expensive considering what it offers. Nevertheless, what it does offer is a robust candybar phone with a few good connectivity features and a good music offering. So, if that's what you're looking for, it will fit the bill.
Practically speaking, if you're looking for a better connected device, we'd recommend the Nokia X3-02 which comes with both Wi-Fi and a touch screen to facilitate web browsing.
3G not HSDPA
The Nokia C2-01 ends up being quite a disappointing handset. It suffers too much from its small screen, style-cramping operating system, and lack of features like Wi-Fi and GPS.
We can see how it might appeal to smartphone naysayers who just want a handset for voice calling and a little SMS action, but even such people might like to consider taking their £80 and looking for a smartphone alternative just in the interests of value for money.
Lightweight but not flimsy
The Nokia C2-01 will satisfy those who are after a basic old-school phone to do the basics. It's lightweight but not flimsy, is comfortable to text and dial on and is generally easy to use.
The camera is fairly decent for what it is but is by no means the best one out there. 3G allows for Facebook checking on the go but the screen size means that web browsing can feel a little cramped. But if you want a bare bones basic phone to call and text on then this won't really bother you at all.
Cheapest 3G Nokia phone
All in all the Nokia C2-01 is a great phone to have. It is extremely practical and functions well. With its fast Internet access, superb browser quality via Opera Mini, plenty of fun games to choose from and an extended life on music playback; the Nokia C2-01 is definitely a phone you want to consider picking up as your next and it will not hurt your budget as it goes for a modest US$95 making it currently the cheapest 3G Nokia phone on the market today.
Superb battery life
While you can get mobile phones for a tenner, unless you have a total disinterest in quality, style and range of function, the Nokia C1-01 is undoubtedly worth its slightly higher price tag. The low spec camera aside, the C1-01 has several features you simply don't expect at this price point, including a very good keypad, stereo Bluetooth and a Micro SD slot. The impressive call quality, strong signal reception and Biblical battery life are the icing on the cake.
Good battery life
If you're looking for a phone that passes by as being just a phone, then the Pantech Breeze II should prove to be a decent solution for you. However, we were surprised to see how much depth the phone has when it comes to features and performance. But at the same time with its option for the Breeze Mode, it takes the pain out of getting too bogged down for those who aren't necessarily up to speed with the modern conveniences of most phones.
