Some models are ideal as a first smartphone

People who recycle a mobile phone and choose to put the cash they gain towards a replacement have been told of an ideal first smartphone.

Damien McFerran, writing for CNET UK, nominates the Nokia X3 Touch and Type model as one that is just right for those with little experience of hi-tech devices.

From an aesthetic point of view, the author notes the phone is one of the best around, describing it as a "drop-dead gorgeous" design with an effective interface.

Other benefits of the handset include its good internet connections, with 3G and Bluetooth provided, as well as an easy-to-use feel and good battery life.

"Like so many of Nokia's phones these days, the X3 Touch and Type is a likeable device that just falls short of true greatness," concludes Mr McFerran.

Those who are prepared to splash out on a phone from Nokia with greater specifications may instead be drawn to the recently released Nokia N8, which features a 12-megapixel camera.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "It couldn’t be easier to upgrade your phone. You could even make a little extra cash by trading in your old handset."
