The Nokia 8250, right out of it’s “Walk on the blue side” box did send excitement surging inside me, one I hadn’t experienced ever since dad got me that propeller plane back when I was a little kid.

The phone looks stunningly pretty, professional and cool in it’s black n metallic silver blend.The butterfly design has sure earned it it’s place in people’s hearts.It’s sleek, small and cute!It ships with a standard Nokia travel charger and manual. Lack of a handsfree kit did make me feel a little left out of the “experience”.

*Build Quality:

*True to my heart, I’d have to admit… phones may come and phones may go but this one has earned it’s place in my heart.Superior build quality, one that I haven’t since seen in any other Nokia phone competing in the similar price range except for the N6100.

The keypad is very well finished.Keys are well rounded at the edges, adequately sized and easy on the fingers. Minimal effort gets your work done. Though I must admit the depth could have been increased but the phones slim dimensions, especially around the keypad area, hardly offers the keys any “legroom”.

The phone tapers off in thickness towards it’s bottom, resulting in an “easy-slip” motion even when pushed into your tight jeans pocket. The back lid is flimsier than you’d think, but holds good in it’s place with a rather audible “click” when pushed in.

The base offers connections for the desktop charger, travel charger and the handsfree kit accessory.Power button is place on the top in the form of a tiny key, which I must admit is always a pain to operate.Thankfully I do not ever need to switch off my phone.


Finally the USP of the N8250, the much hyped blue lighting took it’s toll.I must admit it’s kind of addictive and unless you are in a totally dark room you are going to love it.However in utter darkness the rather bright light is harsh on the eyes.On the bright side….or should I say, the “blue” side, it doubles up as a flashlight in the dark and allows you to find your way around when late at the movies. Display is crisp and font size is bold.Keypad lights up in blue as well.


As we have come to expect from Nokia, the menu is classic and known for it’s ease of use and user friendliness.One touch access to the phonebook is a boon.Navigation keys are fast to work around the menu with.

Technically Speaking:

The N8250 never really wished to bag the “tech-loaded” prize, however, the phone features and Infra Red port for communication using the Nokia PC Suite .Phonebook boasts a memory of 250 contacts.Added features include a calendar, Calculator, Predefined games(including the popular Snake-I) and a Profiles setting.

Duty Calls:

Voice clarity, signal strength retention and reception are all noticeably good.If you tend to notice, a fine mesh is provided in the earpiece that enhances the sound quality.

Under the Hood:

The phone uses a BLB-2 Li Ion 3.6V battery that powers it.Battery holds itself securely under the back cover .The Sim card however, needs the battery to be removed, in order to be accessible, which is good because some lazier ones amongst us would never switch off the phone before prying out the SIM.

The Verdict:

The N8250 was born to be a winner.With breathtaking looks, small and sleek form factor and good bang for the buck, If you are not in the market today for a techy gizmo and stuff like MMS, Polyphony, J2ME, GPRS et. Is French to your ears then the N8250 is the phone for you.Reliable, cute and handy.It does it’s job and does it good. Little reason why it still remains my dependable second phone till date!
