Nokia C1-00 review: Dual SIM-phony

 

After years of watching their rivals introduce one dual SIM phone after another, a few months back Nokia finally decided to join them and unveiled its first mobile phones capable of accommodating two SIM cards cards at the same time. Eager to see...

Entry level dual SIM feature phone ; Dual-band GSM support (GSM 900/1800 MHz), no dual standby ; 1.8" 65K-color display of 128-by-160-pixel resolution ; FM radio ; Flashlight ; Low price ; Promising 1020mAh battery

Only one SIM card is active at a time ; Keypad not comfy enough ; No memory card slot ; No support for GPRS, EDGE or Bluetooth

The last dual SIM phone we reviewed came with features like a touchscreen, Wi-Fi support and a 5-megapixel camera on board and this little fella, the Nokia C1-00, doesn’t even have a web browser. Or a memory card slot. But it’s cheap. And that seems to...

Nokia C1-01 Review

 

This review covers the design and user interface of the Nokia C1-01 and discusses what makes it such a great budget phone with a host of multimedia and messaging features.

You can compare the Nokia C1-01 with other Nokia C-Series phones such as the mid-level Nokia C3 and the high end Nokia C7.

Nokia C1-00 Review

 

Not everyone is into full-featured, high-end phones. That's why there are basic, low-end ones in every price range below PhP 4,000. Nokia has recently released an array of low-end affordable phone models and brings us its first ever dual SIM phones:...

Nokia C1-01 and C1-02

 

Before we look at these handsets in more detail, we have to say that we think that the model names indicate the mess that Nokia have made with their new naming conventions. The C1-01 is the one with the camera, the C1-02 is the one without.. although...

Nokia C1-00

 

By "double SIM" we mean that the C1-00 has two internal SIM slots, but only one is active at any one time and the user can swap between them by using a menu. This is different from "dual SIM" where there are two active SIM cards at any one time, such...

Nokia C1-02

 

The Nokia C1-02 cuts out the features to cut down the price.

Cheap ; Simple ; 3.5mm headphone jack

Ugly screen ; No camera ; No downloadable apps

Wireless connectivity is very limited. Bluetooth and GPRS mobile internet are in, but the faster EDGE and HSPA "3G" internet capabilities are missing. This is a basic phone, and is not intended as a web surfing tool, even if it is capable of the odd...

Nokia C1-02 Review

 

The Nokia C1-02 does what it does well (i.e. be a caller and texter) and is available for peanuts. No camera though.

It’s really hard to nitpick and find fault with the Nokia C1-02, a phone that’s so obviously pitched as a bargain basement device. But when you consider that you can pick up the Nokia C2-01 (which has a camera and 3G) for more or less the same money,...

Nokia C1-02

 

Aimed at those who prefer straightforward mobiles to highly-specced smartphones, the Nokia C1-02 (not to be confused with the C2-01) is the latest addition to Nokia's budget line-up.

There's not much to say about the C1-02's design, as it lacks the pizzazz of the likes of the Galaxy S2 and HTC Desire. That's not to say it's an unattractive handset though, as it's fully-black casing gives it a sophisticated look, while it's rugged...

Nokia C1-01/C1-02

 

Models feature a standard Nokia screen used in their entry level solutions: TFT technology with 65,000 colors and the resolution of 128ơ160 (34ơ42 mm and1.8″). The screen fits up to 7 text and 3 service lines. The performance in the sun is decent,...

Nokia C1-01 budget voicephone

 

Review Though you wouldn't guess as much from the raucous clamour about the as-yet-unforeseeable outcome of Nokia's adoption of Windows Phone 7 as its smartphone OS of choice, the Finnish phone giant continues to run a very decent business selling...

While you can get mobile phones for a tenner, unless you have a total disinterest in quality, style and range of function, the Nokia C1-01 is undoubtedly worth its slightly higher price tag. The low spec camera aside, the C1-01 has several features you...
