Those of us of a more mature persuasion remember the first mobile phones, they did one job making and receiving calls, they were huge and you probably got various strains from carrying them around. Now for those who want a simple phone that does far more and weights very little the phone I am looking at here could be the answer.

The Maxcom Classic 330 measures 12.6x5.6x1cm and weighs 111grams. The viewable screen is 6.5x4.8cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial screen measurement of 3.2inches.

While it can make and receive calls it also has a torch, 5MP camera, FM radio and can take a micro SD card up to 32GB to store multimedia.

Going around the outside of the phone has only two connections both on the top the Micro USB connection to charge the unit and a 3.5mm headphone socket. The rear has the 5MP camera 1.5cm down from the top in the centre with an LED flash just below it and the speaker beside the camera.

On the face below the screen there are two soft buttons to carry out whatever the screen says, below this green and red phone buttons to start or end a call with a five position joystick control in between. Finally three columns of four buttons for you to enter details and dial a number.

The screen itself is bright and clear and easy to read apart from when very strong sunlight is directly on the screen.

The top line is reception strength, sound on/mute, locked/unlocked on the left and battery state on the right.

Below this your Sim provider name all Maxcom phones are useable with any provider. Further down the screen Day, Time and Date and the left soft button Unlock.

Once unlocked you can find out exactly what the unit can do and this is all from the left soft key showing Menu with three rows of three icons that with sub menus control the phone.

One word of caution not all SIM cards will work with this phone so check before you purchase, you should be able to make and receive calls, send and receive text messages and even access the Internet.

To insert a Micro SIM you need to remove the back of the phone either a small screw driver or a nail file should preserve your finger nails as the back fits snugly. On the first use you will also need to get the phones solid battery from the box however before inserting the battery insert the SIM and if you want to use one a Micro SD card which gives you extra storage space then insert the battery and replace the phones back.

The phonebook can store up to 500 numbers for quick dialling. The phone also has Bluetooth.

The stated standby time for this phone is 320 hours with over six hours of talk time.

This is a neat small phone designed for those who want a phone to make and receive phone calls it can work on both 3G and 2G Networks.

The Maxcom Classic MM330 is available in black from Amazon for £70 including free dlivery.
