Replacing a trusty Nokia N86 -
| posts: 742 | Location: Inverness
My dad's N86 is finally about to give up the ghost and it's time to look for a replacement. I've not kept too up to date with phone releases for some time and although I've offered to help him find something suitable I don't seem to be having much luck.
He has no interest in a touch screen (so keys are a must) and no real need for apps. The must-haves are decent signal (he works in an area of poor signal; Nokias seem to get signal there but many others don't) and a passable camera. The camera doesn't need to be top of the line by any means but it needs to be usable. Even my fixed-focus Nokia E5 takes better pictures than a number of smartphones I've seen. The slider-style of the N86 is perfect for dad as it means he doesn't have to worry about manually locking the keypad after a call (he works outside and that tends to mean using gloves for a few months of the year). On that logic a sliding design would certainly appeal if possible.
Does anyone happen to have any suggestions? It would really be appreciated.
