Impervious to water, dust and CALLS


This is a great phone but the signal on it is incredibly weak. The really WOULD have aced it with this phone if it wasn't for that. I had to return mine, I couldn't pick up any networks, whilst my old Nokia phone and my fiancees phone had 2-4 bars. A real shame, because I was sold on it otherwise.


Weak signal

Nokia 3720 classic review: Handle without care


The Nokia 3720 classic is putting on its boots, pulling on its anorak, slinging its rucksack over its shoulder and striding out into the unfriendliest of environments: water, dust, tough ground…you name it, this device promises to shrug it off...

Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 2.2" 16M-color QVGA display of excellent sunlight legibility ; 2 megapixel camera, autofocus and LED flash ; VGA video recording at 15fps ; S40 user interface, 6th edition ; Stereo FM radio with RDS ; Bluetooth (with...

No 3G ; No dedicated camera shutter key ; No smart dialing ; No multi-tasking ; No office document viewer ; No lens protection ; Memory card slot under the battery ; No USB cable in the retail box

Well, the Finns have finally put that right and they seem to have a promising candidate on their hands for those who care less about features and even less about the weather. So, if you're after a handset that can survive the elements, get ready to...

Review: Review of the rugged Nokia 3720 Classic cellphone


The Nokia 3720 Classic is a ruggedized feature phone that claims to be resistant to water, dust, and shock. Russell puts the IP-54-certified candybar styled handset through its paces. Read on to see how well the 3720 holds up.

The Nokia 3720 classic is a pretty simple phone and therefore doesn't feature as comprehensive a range of connectivity as most other handsets these days. However, it does still feature GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth v2.1, and USB connectivity for synchronizing...

Nokia 3720 Classic


We got a glimpse of the 3720 a few days ago with a couple of Nokia teaser videos which show the handset being kicked about and then used as a golf ball in the rain. So, we feel that it should probably survive the odd bit of water and being dropped onto...

Nokia 3720 Classic review


It's nothing remarkable, but the Nokia 3720 Classic's sturdy construction and low price tag make it a decent, rugged all-rounder. It's perfect if you want a functional, reliable mobile, rather than a flashy smart phone

Sturdy construction ; Water- and dust-resistant ; Easy to use ; Good battery life

Not as rugged as some other mobiles ; Occasionally sluggish menus ; Poor-quality camera

The keypad is of the alpha-numeric variety and the keys are quite rubbery. While they're not as responsive as normal, non-rugged plastic keys, they're not too small or fiddly, and we didn't notice any problems with key presses failing to register. The...

Whether you're a rugged outdoors type with calloused hands from weekend rock-climbing, or whether you're just a doofus who regularly drops your phone in the loo, Nokia's latest announcement could be for you.

Nokia 3720 Classic Review


With all the latest fancy smartphones these days that do just about everything except for washing the dishes, we need to now and again come back down to earth and check out the more basic/entry-level phones. Nokia has provided us with...

Simple stylish design ; Robust build (water, dust and shock resistant) ; Clear display ; Flash for the camera ; Good call sound quality

Quite complicated for an entry level phone ; Camera quality is quite poor ; No dedicated camera button ; USB cable not provided in box ; No 3G
