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 ...

Cannot connect nokia suite

most of them who think that they can connect nokia handset with nokia suite will be a disappointment.

With this model you cannot use nokia suite

some of the phones released recently are excluded.

If you are nokia suite user and cannot stop using it this phone will be a disaster

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 :-(
