Let me tell you why its priced high.nactually, its not high, it is quite justified, as it is a 3G phone, and that too with Dual Sim, Dual Standby option.nThe nearest option in this price range within Nokia is Nokia Asha 310, which is also a dual sim phone, but it lacks 3g, so no good video/music streaming on that phone.nYeh, 310 has wifi, but 301 do not. Also, 310 is a Touch Screen phone.nwhile 301 is edging with 3g, better Still Camera and Video Camera, Similar looks to Lumia Phones, Alphanumeric Keypad for those who are still not comfortable with touch screen, and lastly, The BIG BATTERY...nChoice is simple, Want touch?, 3g is not issue, Asha 310 is the one.nWant a non touch, 3G phone?, 301 is for you... But if u can skip 3G, Nokia 206 is already available in market with quite similar specs of 301...nnBut Nokia, you should release a Budget Phone with 3g+dual sim+ wifi..... this combo is hit in android department... nGiving 5 stars for its battery, durability, looks and 3G dual sim...nthough it would hv been great if camera was 5MP.
Cons- no wifinPros - I find myself much more productive ever since I stopped using a smart phone. Work stays at the computer and verbal communication is done on the phonenLooks perfectly good in black. I quite like the sizennHighly reccommend people to switch back to regular cell phones... if you have a laptop, leave your work there and get a life off screens!
seriously, this is quite overpriced.nnWhat you are getting a 3.2 mp camera with (no flash) and a 3G with this phone. Don't just buy this phone just by the looks.nnThere's no WiFi and it is an s40 interface good for nothing. Rest configuration are basic phone. nnNokia sell this for 3500 /-
First of all I am a Nokia lover.n* This is a great design from Nokia like so many other old phones.n* 2.4 inch brightness adjustable screen with 320 x 240 pixel resolution.n* 3.5G Phone with HSDPA.n* Fast youtube streaming in 3G.n* For an Optimum user Battery will last upto two days( a Little music,video playback and optimum calls and internet.)n* Have a great battery (1200mAh) in these series.n* 3.2 MP Camera without flash.n* Camera seems to be great and the rear portion phone is look like Lumia 920. But when we zooming the photo, it'll become very bad.n* Video recording is 320 x 240 res with 30 fps.(One and only one with this config around 5000.n* Many camera effects like Panorama and self portrait and self timer and some more other effects.n* Has 64MB RAM and 256 MB Internal memory(160MB is usable).n* Great design and better phone from Nokia and so many colours.n* With Dual SIM(Personally I hate Dual Sim, but what can I do, they have only dual sim model in india).n* No one can't beat NOKIA.n* Like you Both, NOKIA and FLIPKART
A lot of research goes in buying a cellphone, especially if it is for your parents who do not like to venture out to new technology but somehow like the minimum incremental change with their new handset (obviously change comes out of a compulsion). With all the inputs from them and market availability, happen to finalize on Nokia 301 as it still resembled the old candy bar first gen. Nokia phones albeit big screen and high quality resolution.nnThe phone is a perfect blend of high resolution, big screen, good camera and all the latest apps required for our generation to communicate while still maintaining the old world charm of candy bar phones which are easiest to use and navigate, The phone didn't disappoint on its battery as well which was a worry point looking at the reviews.nnFlipkart from their end have been perfect as always, phone ordered on a Saturday morning and reaches to me on a Sunday evening from Kolkata warehouse to Bangalore. Bang on ! Have purchased practically everything from Flipkart from books to mobiles and from SD cards to LED TV's, their commitment to customers and delivery levels have throughout remained uniform.nAs said, all good things come to an end OR law of averages catches up. "We found a manufacturing defect in the phone", the centre navigation button at times stops functioning and we showed it to the Nokia Centre, just in case its an aligning issue but they mention it to be a Cosmetic manufacturing defect... Raised a complaint with Flipkart and within 48 hours the handset was replaced by brand new Nokia 301 with new bill.
