I bought Nokia 603 for 130 EUR 22 months ago made by Hungary. This smartphone is just not good enough for everything it offers to use. Read below for deep experience.
3,5" display is good, scratch-resistant glass. I recently broke it with the keys so the cracks spread out and the glass falls out. Touchscreen is responsive though.
I use 32GB SD card for music. 340 MB user available, actually it is 357MB Phone memory. 1 GB ROM, actually it is 1613MB Mass memory.
5 MP fixed camera is horrible. You can easily recognize faces or environment on the picture, even 720p video is able to watch but it does not deliver detail. It looks like shooting through the water.
FM Radio is available with official headphones but they broke apart in just first few months.
1300mAh battery is probably the best thing about the device. It survives for 2 days, when not used much, it is for 4 days, if I do not use the mobile at all it just is able to stay alive for 7 days.
Now comes only the bad about it. The speaker is so silent, you have no way you can hear it at the street when having it in the pocket. Red button (cancel call) sometimes does not respond so I have to manually take out the battery of the phone to restart. It lags much when browsing internet. It is slow at loading up the websites. The OS does not support a lot of new features, your Web browser is useless when you want to visit more complicated site. It closes Web browser automatically when it is too much lagged or can not handle the pressure. You can multitask the Web in 6 lists.
Overally, the phone is not functioning well either for its weak processor together with little RAM and available user offered memory or for the OS not supporting a lot of nowadays features. This is just basic phone for calling.
I got this phone for my bae... My lovely gf uses this phone and she loves it and loves me more even though she doesn't say it to me I know she does.. It's quick in almost everything and now we chat like always

I've been using this phone for almost 4 years.. it has several issue such as lagging and compatibility but i still use it. I don't even need screen protector yet the screen remains clear like new. with all those android phones around, i still love my 603
I also use Nokia 603. Really this is user friendly but now my E-mail ID don't taken I don't open Nokia Store. When i want to open it this Opera Store replace of Nokia Store.
Why can i solve this?
I used this cell almost 5 years . One of best phone i ever used. Battery timing gr8. User friendly.
Best phone...using ot for four years. The thing i love about this phone is battery backup. If put in powersaver mode lasts easily for 4-5 days. And then symbian...best mobile OS. sadly forsaken. Wish nokia would revive it.
I love symbian.........................still............................
still using 603....................
One of the last Symbian phones, one of the best Symbian phones in terms of CPU speed/RAM. Doesn't come with flash light, but it's pretty cheap. Get it if you love Symbian like I do.
i only thought i hated the android system......damn this phone pisses me off!
