Issues with build quality, Poorly designed keypad layout, Frustrating user interface, Only 26MB of internal memory, Useless handle adds unnecessary bulk, Battery not removable, No hands-free speakerphone

NEC N412i


This handset from NEC is a major nightmare for the camp at Motorola, who, for a long while, had the thinnest handset in the world in their possession. Now NEC have come along and smashed this record by a mere millimetre, and the result is the NEC N412i.
