Overall: i got the phone some 15 days back.. will try to give you an overview
What you will love?
1. excellent battery backup - this was my first priority and the phone performs handsomely here. battery lasts for 2-3 days with moderate use (=30-40 mins of calls, checking mail & fb 3-4 times a day & listening to music for sm 20-30 min)
2. nice looks - i am using the silver colored set. the overall finish is great & the set is light weight & looks good in the hand. display too is sharp
3. homescreen - this feature places all the needed shortcuts at ur fingertips. you can customize it as per your need.
4. music output is decent; i have replaced it with my philips headphones for better performance.
5. camera too is good for daylight photos, but you will miss a flash when taking night photos.
6. the phone can be used as a 3G modem. download the pc suite & you are ready to surf the net. the speed is excellent (i'm using idea 3G)
7. ovi store has a great collection of apps - you can chat, play games & do many other exciting things from your device.
What you will miss?
1. A good Browser was needed. The pre installed opera is awful & badly needs an upgrade. ovi store has a nokia browser that might help.
2. Flash - will be badly missed while taking night photos
What did I compare it with & why I chose C2-01?
A close contender was Sony Cedar, but sony's reputation has been falling when it comes to low end phones. I didn't want to take a risk..
Another competitor was nokia X2. Better camera (5 mpx) & better music output. But NO 3G :(
3G will surely help if u want to use ur phone as a modem.
The phone is a good buy in under 4k. Nokia's reputation has been good at low end phones & the set will last beyond 1-2 years (maybe more) depending how & how much you use it.
Those with higher budgets are reading the wrong review - You must go for a htc/samsung galaxy.
Pepl wit 4k in pockets (like me) will enjoy this phone for sure.
Flipkart is offering really great service. I have purchased some electronic items from the site & all of them were delivered well on time & in perfect condition with original bill & warranty. You can confidently shop with Flipkart.
Hope the review was helpful.
