The English dictionary says any of a variety of confections made with sugar, syrup, etc., often combined with chocolate, fruit, nuts, etc is known as candy. So a candy bar should be a long evenly piece of sweetness. Probably that’s why when mobile phone companies shape their gadgets like candy bars, they seem to sell countless of this devices.

Walking on the streets of Nairobi, Kampala or Dar, people display their handsets with gusto, pride and you know that look pick up line ‘can I have your digits’ which some ladies might actual give you digits right across you face.

Well this gadget that has made us pick up peculiar social behaviours has got very interesting pretenders contending for the sweetest candy bar. Pundits have thrown reviews here and there on their like top candy so here is mine and I will be brief.

My first choice confectionery delight is the Nokia 1110. This phone is an entry level mobile phone which is great for people budgeting. Its simplicity and good battery life make is ideal for new entrants in to the mobile world and also for the older folks who may just need few features to communicate with other people.

To many people this is not an entry phone but rather a low end phone.

My second choice is Samsung SGH-E590. First it does not look like a Samsung which is rather exciting. It is also simple to use has features galore. Its 3mp is just great to use and yes you can auto focus. The phone has a solid casing and the button a real to use.
For my third I must say we have a tie between the Nokia 6300, Sony Ericsson W880i and the Sony Ericsson K810i. All are remarkably thin with sexy slim designs. Their slick-looking user interface makes the easy and a delight to use.
Where as the W880i has 3G connectivity the decent Nokia 6300 lack this.

Final word about his three devices is that they have all round features, are slim and I repeat sexy.

But the master of simplicity and overall performance is the Nokia 1100 series. Walk the streets of East Africa you will definitely find out that for every third person you meet this is the phone.
