Nokia Astound (T-Mobile)

 

The Nokia Astound boasts a sleek, premium design and affordable price tag. Call quality is good, and the phone's 8-megapixel camera takes great photos and video.

The smartphone can be sluggish and the Symbian 3 operating system is still behind the curve in ease of use and functionality.

The Nokia Astound is a beautifully designed and affordable smartphone for T-Mobile, but there are other budget-friendly options available with better performance and that are easier to use.

Nokia Astound (T-Mobile)

 

The 3.5-inch, 640-by-360 touch screen looks a little bit dim indoors, but works unusually well outdoors in sunlight. On the right-hand side of the handset, there's a useful hardware lock switch, a dedicated Camera button, and Volume buttons. The...

Beautiful hardware. 8-megapixel camera. Good voice quality. Excellent e-mail support. Some high-quality apps

OS can be difficult to use at times. Some crashes. Very tiny keyboards. Fewer apps than Android or Windows Phone

The Nokia Astound is a great value for an 8-megapixel camera phone, but its app selection doesn't measure up to Android's.
