  • This product has one big drawback i.e. its RAM

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    although the phone very well supports the basic functions but it lacks its operating capability when operating heavy apps like microsoft office , NFS shift etc, and even sometimes phone got chrashed on its own and sometimes when the phone is not switched on/off for a long time it fails to start new apps and one major reason for all these problems is the RAM its just 256 MB which is not sufficient for such a smartphone which can provide more efficiency if having even 512MB of RAM. for rest of the things like messaging, mail , battery backup , and specially camera is excellent. So , just an average smartphone for nokia.

    Both my daughter and I have this phone. They both cracked without dropping it. They both froze to a white screen and are now nonworking. VERY FRUSTRATING.

    I bought this mobile an year ago. when i bought this mobile i was first very exited then i realized that there were so many problems like memory card not supported, very frequent restarting, and some camera issues. i thought this is a problematic phone and kept worrying for some time, but then i realized this phone supports belle update. after the update there no memory card issue or camera issue, but the performance and the ease of use has improved, it feels like the best smartphone, though you have the restarting problems when do a lot of multi-tasking. you forget about it when you use it. touch response is very good, the app store not very good but have some important apps and games like Microsoft office, Skype, whatsapp, all angrybirds, fruit ninja etc but still lacks very much. net browsing really a breeze, really fast. a perfect phone for people who use net, music and videos a lot. not good for gamers as it does not support any other 3D game. buy this if you are netaholic. camera and video performence is also good but not the best. resolution is mind blowing. i suggest android though iam very happy with this product now.
