  • Small sexy phone with great battery life

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    i bought this phone in mexico because the dealer told me it had great battery life. It does!!! other phones and also iphone are mostly computers, and battery life is a day or so, this one goes for many days even with use! And forever on standby! I wanted a phone not a computer, and i use it mostly for phone calls not browsing. They are amazed at the small size and bright colour! After returning to Canada, I noticed this little phone is a girl magnet! Half that see it comment on it, they love the small size, and the red colour, and ask where i bought it! I tell them i bought this in latin america, they can't buy it here. The browser though is poor, as here in Canada most wifis have splash screens, and the browser won't enable you to click the ok or accept buttons on these screens. All in all i love this little phone! I paid only 1000 pesos for it, and i've dropped it many times and it is super resilient!

    I bought this phone online from flipkart. I have been using this phone since last 4 months. Apps such as whatsapp, facebook, messenger, line, wechat, quikr, paytm, temple rush, plant vs zombies and many more are enough to make the maximum use of your phone. Fastlane and swipe feature on your phone makes you stand above the others. I strongly recommend people to buy this phone whose basic need of a smartphone is fb and whatsapp. You would love to carry and show off its beautiful colours to others.

    I purchased this phone before one month.Nice phone.But some features are missing. Sound quality is not up to the mark.No equalizer. No cut,copy&paste options. Otherwise it is a good phone. Some people doesn't know to delete the activity from Fastlane. For deleting activity from Fastlane, tap on a item in fastlane and hold for a few seconds.Then a cross mark will appear in the side of each item.We can delete the activity by pressing on that. Or we can delete all fastlane activity by pressing 'clear all' button. Thank you.

    This is a very nice mobile with good battery back up,easy to carry,easy in using.I love this mobile a lot than any other mobile.I am using it from past 6months,very nice to use.Budget phone for every one,Touch is good,apps r good,only thing is the screen size a little big atleast 3.5inch would b good,I suggested many persons for this phone.Really a nice phone in less budget.Expecting more in this budget is not correct because Nokia never fails to win the users heart.
