I have one of those in a drawer too, next to a W800 and C905.

C905 was the best of that era in my opinion.

I also had Aino which deserves an honourable mention, that design would still turn heads today, in fact.. I may just take it out next time opportunity.

My W902 arrived the other day. Mint in Wine colour. I forgot just how small and slim it was. I was reading a review on TechRadar and the reviewer was commenting about how it was a bit too tall, compared to some other phones

Put next to my Xperia 5 Compact it looks absolutely tiny, like a miracle of miniaturisation.

It's really strange having a phone with no WiFi and not being unable to stream music to a bluetooth speaker. It really was a product of it's time. Gorgeous little phone though.

@Ricky. The C905 was one of my favourites. Seem to remember it having an issue of some sort. I think it was the keypad coming loose?

Had the same feeling when I pulled out the K850, cannot believe I used to web browse for hours on that tiny screen and even watch videos on it.


Edit:


Anyone here still have their Symbian UIQ phones? At some point I would love to get my hands on a P990, W950 and M600, those are 3 phones that I was obsessed with back then.
Maybe even a W960 to.

Why I never took any notice back then of the W950 is beyond me.Looking at it now I can kick myself for not having got one.Maybe its because a year earlier I had the P990i. It is a really beautiful looking phone.Those days were so exciting.So much choice.

You'd have preferred it over the W960?

Definitely prefer the W950. No contest. The design changes to the W960 totally take away what I thought amazing with the W950. Don't know what they were thinking. After my P990i I jumped ship back to Nokia with their black N95 8GB so maybe that's why I totally missed out on that beautiful W950. What a pity. Would say next time but unless we find a time travel machine we ain't gonna experience beautifully designed phones like that again.

I just bought a refurbed W980i for nostalgia.

I will take it out when I go to events where I don't need to be checking my email or playing games, weddings, dinner parties, award ceremonies and stuff like that.

Conversation piece and non-distracting from the event itself.

I might use it as a media player when running also.

Same here. I took my W902 to my operator store to get a sim adapter and the assistant hadn't seen anything like it before. Especially in mint condition.

That W980 is stunning.Cant believe I missed out on the W-series and was more attracted to the P-series.
