Hi! This phone is not too bas i would have liked more battery life for the hours they are quoting. But i have used about 2 hours of calls internet for one hour and about three hours of music and its got two bars left after two days. If it keeps up for four days with the same usage again then thats not too bad. I agree Nokia should not be quoting 888 hours. More like 400 hours standby and 10 hours talk time as a maximum. If people are surfing the net all day then you will only get one day the same on all smart phones!
Mine came with the new 2.51 software already installed dunno if this makes any difference to the battery. Just wish they had more colours than just the black one in england. Wanted cyan. When gsm do a proper review?
Ivan Chen, 26 Jul 2013I have both 301 and 206. In terms of general performance, 206 is a lot better than 301. Althou... moreSo kind of you Ivan Chen. Thanks. Lastly, how about the connection? N206 is 2g while N301 is 3g. Is the difference by par? Or not really?
And have you already found the way to share your internet in 3g with your other device?
Thanks a lot! :))

Kim 01, 26 Jul 2013Thanks. But i also saw your post in nokia 206. You have both phones? Which is better in overal... moreI have both 301 and 206. In terms of general performance, 206 is a lot better than 301. Although the 301 screen has better specs, the 206 screen does not look any inferior. An even stranger thing is that 301 has 3.2 MP camera, but the images it produces are not as clear as those produced by 206, whose camera has only 1.3 million pixels. I've tested the two cameras several times under the same condition: same object, same distance, same light, same angle. The result has always been this way. So far, there are only two advantages of 301 over 206: that 301 has more internal memory, and that 301 can play some video files that 206 cannot. Apart from the two advantages, 301 can never beat 206 in overall performance.
Please tell me, this phone supports to open PDF files or not ?
nokia 301 users please tell in detail about the battery life,sound quality and perfomance.is it similar to n206 in sound? nokia 206 sound is not much audible besides battery performance is not up to the mark.please help me to choose better one.
Thanks. But i also saw your post in nokia 206. You have both phones? Which is better in overall performance? And how about the colors in screen? Because n206 has only 65k colors and n301 has 256k colors, do they differ much?

Does anyone know how to share my 301's internet connection with my tablet PC? My tablet PC has WIFI, and I want to connect it to the internet using 301's internet connections. Can this be done? How do I set this up in 301?
Its again the brand nokia. Nice,stylish, easy features. If you are thinking of a good & simple phone this is the one. Fantastic battery support.
First thing, I certainly wish if GSM arena could include "Whatsapp" in specification. Every now and then someone has this question. Worst is, few not even try to go through the comments to clarify there issues.
Second, when raising a question, please provide atleast the software version. Like, for example the Battery life issue. Nokia, released a software update recently, so now the question is if still any issue in phone w.r.t update. It's sounds more logical than asking or saying "my phone has battery problem, someone help". Please add your software version at-least and raise bug with Nokia on Nokia developer page if possible.
