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.

Cheap phone for basic use

 

I bought this phone when I had to buy something for basic use, ie, calls and texts. And that is exactly what I use this for. Nothing fancy. But works well. Have been using for nearly an year without missing a beat. Really recommended if you are...

If you are looking for a basic phone with basic features look no further

Speaker can sometimes be not that divine but nothing much to complain about

Nokia 101

 

I have now used this phone for 8 months. I bought it simply because I only wanted to carryone phone, work and personal. I only use this for phone calls and messaging. I do not use for anything else. It works very well with 2 SIMS, you get to choose...

Dual SIMS easy to use. Probably the lowest cost Dual SIM. Works well for calls and messaging, don't expect much more.

The speaker sometimes is not that clear, in general though quite acceptable. Standby will last about 4 days, so battery not great when using both SIMS.

Nokia 101 - black

 

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

Nokia 101 - black

 

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

Nokia 101 - black

 

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
