Found 4th Dec 2015
What a beautiful mobile phone. Seriously, what's not to love about it. OK, it's not a Galaxy Edge, or an iPhone 6. But just look at it. Just pure BEAUTY.

Having a look around these seem to be the pros and cons I can find:

Pros:

Perfect Gift for the 80's enthusiast
Bluetooth & SIM ready
Simple & easy to use
Long battery life
Access your contacts and music from iOS or Android

Cons:

No Snake. (OMG! It has Snake! Thanks j0rd4n500)
No Apple App Store / Google Play Store.
No Candy Crush.
Looking at it, if it's similar to it's 80s variants, you may need to sit up a tree to receive the best possible signal.
No Nokia 8110 style flip to give you that Keanu Reeves Matrix feel.

But come on. £17.99 to be the talk of the party? No Brainer.

Bought one last time on offer with ebuyer
Had to return twice both times dead ,would not charge....so cold for me
Also i think you can buy cheaper on ebay
After careful deliberation, your con of "No candy crush" swayed me to vote hot!

This is your final deal posted with your Nokia 6510? It's about time you upgraded?

Yeah, after careful consideration, that should probably have been put in the 'Pros' section

Where did people carry these back in the day. Or did they just walk around with them. Ive just checked my biggest pocketed pants i have and i still dont think this will fit in them. So due to practicle reasons im voting cold BUT then again it is white so....
Ok for those who live in the past.

You have pockets in your pants? Are you Superman? The rest of us would be using slightly larger pockets in our trousers.

Well I'm sorry I couldn't conduct a quick straw poll of the people who would have used these back in the day. I think they're likely in bed.
The 80's porn mouatache and shell suit sold it for me!
Yawn, all been done before and wasn't funny then either.

Is Candy Crush a porn star of the dominatrix type?
Hello.
Do you have the number for Ray Bloody Purchase please?

Ahhh, takes me back to driving around with my journalist friend when I came back from university; this thing would be in the passenger foot well with me and I ended up carrying it around for him....... No one was going to do a runner with this.
You missed out an important feature: its emergency setting.
In an emergency you whack your assailant over the head with it.
I'd actually find it pretty useful since I can't get a mobile signal anywhere apart from 1 inch away from a window. Would be handy as a desk phone attached to the mobile via Bluetooth. Heat from me.

I'll ask clem fandango if he has it.
The 80's. Oh happy days. I had hair then.
I hear this is the look Apple are gunning for
I have this as a spare and the battery life is much better than my S6.

****omgpleasespamme**** What kind of clueless oik are you? When people refer to pockets in their pants, they are not referring to Clavin Kleins, they are referring to Wranglers

I'll stock with my Nokia 105 my backup phone - £15 with snake, battery lasts for ages and most importantly it fits in your pocket!

Most people put phones in their trousers rather than their underwear!

I'll come clean like my gruds. I am superman but not American that's just Hollywood americanising everything. I'm actually from the north of England cannot be precise because that would be giving too much away. But we use alot of words here that may not conform to the rest of the country. Now must go to check if my underwear and trousers have been cleaned by my housekeeper.
