Nokia brings the 515 for those who want the latest features without getting entangled in the complexities of Windows or Android. Nokia has always been a leader in this segment, and it reasserts its superiority with unmatched build quality, stunning looks, and a great display on one hand and great camera and connectivity features on the other.
Though feature phones aren't expected to sport front cameras, considering the 3G connectivity, it could have been included. Yet this is hardly a shortfall in a device which otherwise comes loaded with features and stunning looks. Indeed, these make it a must buy for anyone seeking a feature phone that's a notch above the rest.
Display and Configuration
Nokia's latest feature phone comes in a sleek anodized aluminium casing that's tough and light at the same time. The alphanumeric keypad is made of long-lasting resin. The display is a 2.4 inches QVGA (320 x 240 pixels resolution ) TFT beauty with Gorilla Glass. The device runs on Nokia's trusty Series 40 OS, supported by 64MB of RAM for fast performance.
Camera and Storage
The device sports a 5MP rear camera, which comes with LED flash and features like panorama, self-potrait, etc. An additional innovation is the voice control for self-potraits. Multimedia and important files can all be stored using microSD card.
Connectivity and Battery
The 515 is a 3G device with Dual SIM functionality. It also comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microUSB connectivity. Considering the difficulties of porting contacts from one platform to another, Nokia provides facilities for importing contacts from smartphones. The device runs on a 1200mAh Li-ion battery.
