Nokia Returns

I am using this phone for 2 days. This phone is awesome. Display is clearly visible at direct sunlight even in medium brightness. Tower strength and voice quality is far far better than any other phone. Battery backup is superb. You dont have to think about charging. Phone size so calculated that it nicely fits into your hand and weight is so light that you might think sometimes are you rally holding a phone. Touch is best among all smart phone. Fastlane is nice technique to close and open a ...

Great phone no doubt

so i pre ordered this phone for my father. Its been a while now he is been using it. I have to say the phone was so intuitive that my father learned to use it very easily even though he has never used any touch screen phone before. Phone is very light and touch screen is responsive too, not because of the touchscreen but because of the new software changes.
build quality is awesome.
cons: My father got addicted to Facebook and i dont like it :-(

The best phone at this price range...

Don't go for other cheap android phones of Samsung or Micromax. They are made of poor quality hardware. As all the micromax phones are made using Chinese hardware, they are not up to the mark. If you really wanna buy an android phone go for Sony. As a fan of Windows first I looked for the lumia series but they are all priced above 8000 bucks so I ended up buying this one. It’s better than Samsung Galaxy Star Duos (which also comes in this price range). It comes with a 4GB memory card which in...

6. Great speaker sound
7. Resolution you will never feel it is only 320*240
8. Easily removable back cover (available in other colors also buy 2-3 and have a new phone every day)

Perfect purchase, not much worries

I was constantly reviewing this phone even before it was launched in India, and found this phone amazing in low price and good nokia quality.
I pre-ordered it on Jun, 29th and got it on Jul. 4th. I accept the delay part because this phone got launched on Jul. 1st only. So, no grudges at all.

The phone is light weight, nice look with capacitative touch screen.
The only cons with this I see is the sim card slot..which is Micro sim card, so you need to cut your normal SIM off to micro if you p...
