Excellent Music device, poor multimedia features

Pros
Best Nokia music playing cellphone, easy to use, naviwheel is a nice feature, screen contrast is excellent, media playing buttons in the front, standard 3.5" headphones jack, lock button on top, feels very strong (good build quality), wifi b/g for VoIP, Transitions effects like FP2 (N96) phones, Ngage support with 2 buttons, external Speakers quality is excellent, internal memory is fast (8GB) compared to external memory (microSD), battery life is acceptable compared to other series-N phones, signal quality is excellent, keyboard is among the best in nokia phones.

Cons
Camera is mediocre, only 2 MP with no autofocus, videocamera quality is far from being acceptable, no GPS, no accelerometer, LED flash is mediocre, naviwheel is tricky,

Conclusion
If you are looking for a iPod or MP3 player replacement, this is your phone. Excellent quality for what you pay, but if you are into pictures and video-recording, I recommend you to look elsewhere (nokia N82 or N95) since camera pictures are very very bad.
I will give a 4 since this is music-oriented device to compete against iPhone or Sony Ericsson musical (W) series.
Noia large software library is another pro since system is symbian S60-based.


Verdict
4 (out of 5)
