Nokia 130 : Mobile

Nokia 130 white is highly recommended
on 08 January 15
manish rated:
certified buyer

Edited 29march15: Use a new Simcard if your old one is more than 3 years old. Make sure it is newly manufactured and not a languishing old one at some shop. I changed mom & dad’s MTNL Delhi Simcard from a Sanchaar Haat. This solves call drops and signal strength, to a large extent. With each upgrade, my iPhone-mad cousins always change the Simcard with a new one. Also, switch ‘on’ cell phone info through the setup menu. Nokia displays/scrolls the name of the tower connected in the main menu 24/7. If you are connected to a distant tower, switch on/off your phone. Also check whether a particular tower has poor signal. Nokia 130 like all Nokias has the earpiece volume at 50% by default. This volume can be adjusted only when you are listening to an incoming call. Just press the right button on Nokia 130 to increase the volume. Left decreases it. And…Dad got his Red Nokia 130. Red is most visible from a distance. A boon, if any of your old folks has a growing cataract/poor eyesight problem. Lastly, check whether you have any rcc re-construction in your home. This can make it like a mini-faraday cage/shield/nest, which is bad news for cell phone signals. Go to your balcony and check the signal strength.

Jan 2015 Review: Bought this as a New Year gift for my mother, who was using a 5 year-old Nokia 100 that was Made in India at the Sriperumbudur, Chennai factory. My retired Lecturer Mom was unhappy that this factory has closed down and NaMo’s “ Make in India” has received a setback. Unhappier that nearly 8000 Indians lost their jobs. ? Microsoft Nokia-130 is made in Vietnam and the build quality is excellent. The in-ear headphone is good quality though I get my parents to use a Philps SBC-HL140(also bought from Flipkart). These headphones are safer than the in-ear ones as you can hear all the ambient sounds also. This phone has two speakers; one at the back for FM and music, and one for ear, hence the sound leak while conversing is near zero. Sound quality and adjustable level is excellent for old-age hearing. Separate Chiclet keypads are easy for old fingers. This phone also has a better mobile congestion survival. The signal boost is good. It seems to have some better circuitry for 2014-15’s glut of cellphones and the deficient servicing by the same number of towers. I bought a white one. My retired journalist Dad will get his Nokia 130 White soon. He liked the illuminated keypad a lot. The working of old Nokia is same, so there is no problem in switching for old folks. Nokia phones also display the MTNL tower-connected info; which is useful in lodging complaints to MTNL Delhi. MTNL Delhi is notorious for decreasing its signal strength in heavy Airtel or other private network areas. Nokia 130 is our answer to MTNL corruption. The connection stays good even with one-signal-bar ? We will be buying the next Nokia-130 as usual from Flipkart. In New Delhi they are the Masters, as the supply hub of WS Retail is here and EKart Logistics does a professional job. I wish Flipkart has a check-down choice for seeing only the products sold by WS Retail. So, I heavily recommend this phone. Though you can buy cheaper ones with cameras and other enticing add-ons, but, my Mom who was using a Nokia 100 for years says this Nokia 130 is like her still-going-great 21-year-old Sumit Mixer Grinder. It will last a long time. And, I am getting both the Nokia 130 with same white colour. One of my friends bought two Nokia 130s, white, from Flipkart. Its fun to see, two 80-year olds arguing; is it yours or mine? :D
Lastly, Nokia 130 has its aerial at the down position so I guess it is safer, and USB charging can be done using any USB port, or even LED TV ! Though the cable has to be bought separately. USB charging means you can use any USB portable battery bank. XiaoMi smaller one at Flipkart has been earmarked. Nokia 130 data transfer speed with a Class 10 card is good. It can take a 32Gb one. Though I guess a class 4 and 6 will also do fine. Also, I listened the FM radio through my Sennheiser headphones, and it was amazingly good sound. my 2 rupees.

Finally, I thank each and every review-writer at Flipkart. People, please do submit more reviews, and be proactive. Lodge public grievances at pgportal; lodge RTI; use MyGov website; interact with PM at his website. I have lodged over 200 DND complaints in the last 10 years + numerous PGs etc. As an NCC
Cadet(in 1980s) this is my “One Good Act a Day for your Country”.

Philips SBCHL140/98 Wired Headphones : Headphone
Price: Rs. 299
This Item is currently Out of Stock.
basic headphone, average performance and value for money.
on 21 November 13
manish rated:

There are many cheap and bad quality headphones available in the market. This Philips, is of fairly decent quality, and comes packed, with all the import stickers, hence is authentic. This one is my reserve headphone in case the main is busy. Quality is what you pay for; still I will buy again, if my reserve also gets, busy :) The cord length is just enough for a front panel desk top/ lap top use. If you need it to connect it to your Small TV, go for the ones with bigger cord length.

Edited: 9January2015-long term test review.
People this headphone has extremely good quality strong cable and jack. We are using this headphone daily since November 2013. It is connected to my desktop cabinet Cooler Master K281, and, occasionally used by my Music Critique Dad when connected to his mobile phone in coat pocket. This phone's cords have been pulled accidentally and jack; stressed many times. By this time a cheap chinese import would have been rendered useless. I will buy this again if the seller is WS Retail. Small length cord makes it ideal for mobile phones and they are not loud enough so that you are deaf while listening to music; that is to ambient sounds; especially while walking in dangerous Delhi roads. Though my journalist dad scolds everyone in the road he finds listening to in-ear headphones. In-ear have caused many road accidents in New Delhi.
Lastly, this headphone has low price AND average bass and low, high, frequency response. I am ultra-happy that this has lasted 15 months of daily use. Worth the money.

Casio D011 Youth Digital Watch - For Men : Watch
Price: Rs. 1195
In Stock. Delivered in 3-4 business days.
stainless steel version of F-91W
on 22 April 13
manish rated:
first to review certified buyer

i had already reviewed f-91 w on july '12. just adding to the is same as F-91 W.the strap is light weight stainless steel. the case is chrome plated plastic. strap is single locking, should have been double locking...though the size of strap is big, OK for adult size wrist. double locks are more safe as i had my single lock 12 year old timex ironman stolen on crowded mumbai locals right from my wrist!!!
but over all THIS WATCH IS SIMPLY AWESOME, VERY MATURE LOOKS. ultra high recommendation. mind u the LED is Dim and if u have reading glasses more than +2.0 u will need to have then on to see the time.
go for big display electro luminescent backlight watches, if u want to see time w/o glasses or a big numbered analog one.
this time the watch came packed in super sexy casio box and all the papers and manuals.imported in april'13!!!
i have learnt that though it is assembled in china(case+strap+packing) the main module and display are still made in japan - in the original factory!!! amazing watch as it is a 2 decade old design - unchanged - collectors item :)

Got The Legend Delivered Today from Another Legend in India--Flipkart:):):) imported from japan tag...just plain white cardboard-visiting card size insert and polythene packing...NO Warranty Card From Casio India...first reaction is a Genuine Casio as there are so many fakes around...but the buckle strap is small for an adult(only three holes left in my case,i have a normal size wrist and like to wear digital watches in a loose fit)...the watch slipped to the corner of the wrist after some hours...strange that the strap on the holes side is long but on the buckle side is short...though it will fit school going kids below 15 years, correctly...flipkart should have mentioned this with an option for an adult size larger one more thing i want to this watch bring my teenage memories from mid-eighties when digital watches were, the in-thing and very costly...anybody with more than +2.0 reading glasses will not be able to see time clearly w/o them...infact w/o my +1.50 i cannot read the date and day properly:(though with some practice i will get used to day light it is much clearer...and yes the display is Crisp...i got this watch for timing my 3km jog and 30 km cycle rides on my 21 gear hybrid in the monsoons...i just love the light feel,hourly chime and the alarm(though i will download the manual from net to fathom so as to how to do lap timing for two laps)...also the LED light bulb is dim...i will buy another casio/QnQ watch with electro-luminiscence and BIGGER TIME DISLAY SIZE from flipkart but the wrist size + manual + correct size in milimetres of the entire watch HAS to be mentioned in the product information on flipkart...minus the irritating watch dial going to the left side of the wrist and while zeroing the stop watch,the light bulb is switched-on as it is the same switch...i still give this Legend five out of five stars*****and yes the 7-5 Year battery replacement(more light bulb/alarm/chime/stop watch use,less it lasts)is very easy 10 minute DIY just need small philips size screw driver...tutorials are on youtube:)...DoNotMissBuyingThisLegend...and yes this blue colour lined model looks better than the yellow-ocre lined model:) though i would have loved it more,if the buckle intead of black plastic,be in stainless steel,so that the CASIO embossing can be seen clearly...what i like most about this watch is that the stop watch on/off/on switch is the right-down alone switch...incidentally i surfed the net/wiki for this particular info before ordering :D...i pray it was useful reading.God Bless Flipkart.OM.

on 16 July 12
manish rated:

I bought it as the sticker said "Voted Product of the Year 2011"-Consumer Survey of Product Innovation.though the fragrance is excellent...a loofah sponge should be given free with ALL Shower Gels instead of any rebate and as one shower uses atleast 25 ml...should come in a bigger pack say 330 ml.will not buy it again...will try Pure Game Shower Gel from Flipkart instead.also the date of manufacture/batch is at the transparent bottom(bubble jet black print)barely visible in the Mall i bought it from.Price should be less or more quantity given.

Transcend JetFlash 760 8 GB Pen Drive : Pendrive
Price: Rs. 499
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Excellent for connecting to LED TVs for watching movies
on 21 October 13
manish rated:
certified buyer

Firstly, this is a USB3.0 drive and it is mentioned on the pack itself, Read upto 55MBPS and Write, upto 5MBPS. Upto means maximum speed. As I have been using these(2.0) retractable Transcends for the last 4 years, this one did not disappoint. I am getting speed transfer of an average upto 300MB/minute, while writing a 2GB movie. Read speed is blistering at 50MBPS.
Secondly, I bought it specially to transfer movies from Desk Top to USB. Our new TVs have double USB ports, so they can duplicate on the LED TV itself. Small size drives are a pain to connect at the side of the Wall mounted TVs. Dangling USB cord connectors are a no-no, and may even degrade quality if watching a FHD Movie(thru USB Cords). So Size Does Matters.
Thirdly, I got the drive on 4 Oct'13 and it was imported brand new on 7/13(August'13), with all the import stickers, from Transcend Taiwan.
For High Speed Data transfer from Computer to Computer, I will go for a 16/32 GB USB 3.0 drive and faster ones than this. But remember, the real-time data transfer speed depends a lot upon your computer configuration, and RAM Speed i.e of both the connected machines. Whether you have SSDs(solid state drive) installed or not, and the kind of data being copied also effects the transfer speed.
