When one thinks of cheap cell phones, they think about local brands and bad production values - which is a misconception. Basically, mobile phones cater to a cross section of people, right from those who want just a simple device to make and receive calls to those who want a complete information and entertainment device. This has led to many bigger brands to make budget phones, like Sony Ericsson. Here are three cheap cell phones from Sony that provide great value for money.
The first aspect that one should take into consideration while looking for a cheap cell phone from Nokia is the series. More often than not, the W series is for the Walkman Series, the K series is for the cybershot series, while the T series is for the web and other services series. The Z series was known for their unique designs and niche features. The budget series under the Sony Ericsson brand name is the J series. Here are some of the cheapest J Series brand phones that are available today:
Sony Ericsson J 132: Announced in 2008, this phone is one of the cheapest phones that is available today, with of course some very basic features. With the J 132, one can send and receive calls and SMS, listen to Stereo Radio with RDS and is offered a flashlight, Dust resistant keypad, a organiser, a timer and a stopwatch. It also has a T9 dictionary for those inclined. The cell phone is a basic one and does not offer GPRS, Bluetooth, WLAN, USB port, etc. It also does not have a card slot and does not have a camera.
Sony Ericsson J 110: The J110 can be considered to be the predecessor of the J 132. It offered the basic features like sending and receiving calls, sending and receiving SMS, but did not offer radio services. It did not have a browser and did not offer GPS, Java, Card Slot, GPRS, EDGE or any other enhanced communication services. It offered games and a calculator, and Reminder.
