Nokia 6310i

[Discontinued but widely available SIM-free]

PLUS
• One of the classic 6×10 family – very few frills but basically sound ergonomics
• Available at bargain prices

MINUS
• Feels a bit dated
• A bit of a brick – some regard it as too large and heavy (though other people like the heftiness)
• Reliability poor

WE SAY
Despite the downsides, it’s worth considering this old warhorse of a phone simply for the price (why not buy a spare at the same time?) and the well-differentiated ergonomically sound keys
