Doesn't know ANYTHING about Nokia, opsystems (besides Crapdroid) and build quality. Someone must be pretty much mentally challenged to claim that Samsung build quality is better than Nokias :)

The asha 205 is basically a x2 01 with newer features like slam,xpress browser.and since asha series has been quite popular among feature phones it's a gud idea to relaunch it under asha series.
It does better have better luks than asha 200 imo but the cam could've been better- maybe a 2mp one as on the asha 200.

The biggest joke ever. Nokia phones are known for reliability and durability.. Whether it's cheap S40 or gorgeous Lumia. All have quality build. Even gsmarena admit it. Go moan in your cheapo plastic forum. And WP lag?? Really. That's why it is the smoothest and stable OS now..

guys if u live europe or america its up to you but before criticise this u have to know that.

1. In africa and asia some people they dont know even what is ovi store they download stuff from website which do not have top level domain like those made by subdomain like xtgem, wapka and peperonity

2. This phone has 64mb but only 10 is available because there is 40 games and apps like mig33 preloded.

3. If u said nokia repeat mistake to build this phone you are totally wrong because asha series is only series which is profitable in q3 it sells 6.5 million unit compare to lumia series which sell 2.9 million units.

4. Not all people like touchscreen or qwerty phones nokia 206 give us candybar flavour even blind and old people they can use it

5.q3 nokia sells more than 60 million of feature phone and less than 15 million samrtphone if were you which business will you invest more?

back then when symbian was still alive, people are kept on complaining that symbian is suck, dead, and lack of apps. still behind of android..yes its true.

when nokia accepted microsoft as their os right now, people made exactly the opposite, please do make some symbian phones,

this thread for s40 not for s60 series and to accept the truth 808 might be the last symbian phone released!
