I find that the Nokia 1112 is a very capable phone. It has big characters for the display which anyone with bad eyesight would appreciate. It has a simple, easy to use menu and the keypads are big for easy text messaging.
I liked the talking alarm clock. The battery life is very good and so far I have no complaints with the Nokia 1112. It does not have a camera or sound recorder or a color screen but I dont use those features anyway on a phone (if I want a camera I would use my 6 MP camera which can take better quality pictures)
summary: If you need a simple, easy to use phone the Nokia 1112 is an excellent choice.
