Качество связи аппарата находится на уровне современных GSM-аппаратов, не лучше и не хуже большинства из них. Громкость разговорного динамика средняя, мне в некоторых ситуациях ее не хватало (в противовес Nokia 1280, который оснащен очень громким...

Quick Review: Nokia 101 (Dual SIM)


Nokia has set its sight on recovering the market share it has lost in the low cost budget phone segment to the local players. Hence Nokia has upped the ante and rapidly released a number of low cost dual SIM handsets in an attempt to claw back some of it.

Still with such features at a low price point and Nokia's brand you can surely go for this one, if you do not mind the little flaws it carries.

by Vina TRUSTWORTHY all reviewsLike? Support the author I have had my Nokia 101 for 6 months now. For a low-end phone, I am very happy with it and would recommend it to those who are looking for a good quality low-end cellphone.

What more can you ask for, for the price and a dual sim. Great for holidays without incurring the data charges of the new smart phones and battery is still going strong after 20 days.

Great buy for the price. Quick delivery. No complaints for the price

The adapter is a bit big when using with overseas plug but most people will have an old nokia charger lying around

if you want a simple, easy to use, and robust dual sim phone, then this fits the bill. you can call and text with ease with this phone, and the dual sim option is great for international sim cards (to either call abroad, or when you're abroad)....

easy to use and robust

back cover difficult to remove to access sim slots

Needed a new phone, didn't want a fancy (expensive) "smart" phone, but was also looking at MP3 players. Bingo! This was the answer.

An excellent phone at a sensible price

Would have liked a better choice of colours

Needed a new phone, didn't want a fancy (expensive) "smart" phone, but was also looking at MP3 players. Bingo! This was the answer. The phone came with an instruction manual in French! Pixmania is getting me an English version (I hope) but I managed ok...
