hi friends, i brought this phone last week...those who are gona buy this listen to me carefully coz i am gona tell the true pros and coons of this mobile...

pros:

looks good
build gud
feels gud in hand
good battery backup of 1.5 days on heavy use also
battery charges faster

cons:

if u r a heavy texter, forget this...the keypad is so small u cant type at all...it will take atleast 3 minutes or more to type a small message of three lines...whatsapp chatng feels like hell with tiny keypad....the qwerty is much worse than the other...just forget about messaging and chatng in this mobile...u will hate it

this mobile hangs a lot..a lot means a lot...most of the time when u open internet it hangs, net is not tat fast..

when u r using internet nd browsing , if u accidentally swipe hard u will go to timeline...this will happen to u most of the time and hence u will have to reload the page all again...this is hell...nokia has not done good research on this..very bad feature ....

screen is so small u just cant zoom the photos...pinch to zoom is really tough to do...

nokia cud have made this OS much simpler but they hav made it very complicated....

and last wordings...frankly if u dont have enuf money nd is looking for a touch screen mobile or a second phone u can buy it...otherwise pls dont buy it ...add some money and buy a 4 inch screen mobile...touch screen mobiles r good to use if it has atleast 3.5 inch screen..otherwise u will go thru hell like this phone....i hv been using galaxy pro nd now i feel hell...i took this phone fr battery back up...the only advantage i feel...

Everything works great, solid build, very smooth operating system, touch screen and loudspeaker is great but earpiece volume is low, I face problems in understanding the person on the other end when I am in noisy areas.

No segregation message on this model. Messages are in form of conversation mode, which can not be changed. 2nd- No changing of music/radio channels while pressing the earphone. I face uncomfortable with this model. Do not buy it...

also i forgot to mention there is no wifi on this phone.if u want a wifi phone with similar specs at a low cost check out the nokia asha 500.
also guys keep in mind this not a smartphone.it is just a feature phone.

Guys I have been using this phone for a month now and I am very impressed with its build quality,durability,battery back up,ease to perform basic functions
Here are the pros and cons
1)It has a strong build quality.
2)Glance screen and double tap to wake up(u may have to tap it thrice though)
3)Smooth Os
4)Fast lane for multitasking(it gives u a brief history of all the things u do.U can go back to any of things u did from fast lane.
5)slide notifactions that appear when u unlock ur phone.
6)a notification centre
7)decent camera quality
8)WhatsApp and other social networking apps
9)amazing battery back up(provided u don't use internet a lot)
10)low price
Cons
1)low display quality as compared to smartphones(but helps saves battery as smartphones with very high quality displays consume battery really fast)
2)only 64 MB ram(not a gaming phone.if u want one buy a smartphone)

I ALREADY OWN A SMARTPHONE-LUMIA 620.I USE THIS PHONE AS AN OFFICE PHONE ONLY FOR BASIC FUNCTIONS.

IF U GUYS WANT A GOOD SMARTPHONE WITH ACCESS TO ALL APPS N GAMES CHECK OUT THE NOKIA X2
