Got this for Rs.1100 in Kerala. It is simple, functional and has several good features (like speaking clock, converter, loud-n-clear ringtones) from old model Nokia 1600. Voice leakage seems to be there, as I could hear the conversation clearly from rear side as as well. Speaker voice level is a bit low in my set. With headphones/loudspeaker voice is ok. FM is good. Nokia has removed many unnecessary settings and options and that combined with small screen probably will give it the battery life. While trying some theme adjustment my phone restarted once! Overall a good phone. Waiting to see how battery performs.
For me the screensize is not an issue since the display is only for showing contacts, texts and menu items.
It would be a real shame if you have a big display but with very limited capability like just viewing texts.
Hey guys will you plz tell me that there is sound leakage problum or not.
How is the voice clearity in comparison of nokia 1280...
Pattycakes, 25 May 2013Can you even see display thumbnail size, shame or i would buy.Yes, the display is enough. If the screen was bigger the battery life would be shortened since the display drinks up power from the batteries. That is why large screen devices need hi capacity batteries and its not even enough to last a day.
i have nokia 105 and it is awesome! the keypad is so cool and i could text all day ....great phone!
Does anyone know if the FM Radio is wireless like LG phones or does it need the earphone as an antenna?

Charge once a month!!
Excellent backup phone for my battery hog android.
Maybe they improved on the power consumption of the LCD and/or the processor and now it consumes less power than the previous models so there's no need to develop new high capacity batteries. If there's a 2000mAh battery for that then that would make it last for 80-90 days on stand by.
I'm doing a stand-by test for the BL-5C battery on Nokia 105 so I'll report my test here as soon as the battery empties.
Nokia should try to indtroduce better battery than this. This is the same old 1110' 1280 etc. Coz battery 800 mAH . Better that Nokia should itroduce 2000 mAH. They should introduce one mobile but better.
shashi, 15 May 2013how to play youtube....please reply fastHAHAHAHA this phone does not even support internet I think... Why would it have YouTube?
AnonD-147361, 21 May 2013Very nic phone no sound leakage problem...whats the problem brother
I just bought the Nokia 105 and replaced the stock BL-5CB battery with a higher capacity BL-5C and see how long the battery would last on standby
Would any other test the voice leak problem or encountered restarts and auto shut off. This test could really take a long time as it's being fully charged as of writing.
This phone is lighter than my Nokia 1280. The keys are lighter to touch and the response time is ok. New to me is the multiple alarms.
I had the Nokia 101 before and I dreaded the frequent restarts. With the memory card slot, mp3 player it would have been perfect but The restarts really ruined it so I gave that phone away. So I reverted to the 1280 whose monochrome display I find better even in bright sunlight.
Hoping that this would redeem the disappointment I had with the 101 and that I wouldn't miss the mp3 player and custom ringtones.
Check it's manual and find that it has a high SAR value of 1.42W/kg which is just near to the max limit 1.6W/kg. It's design & light-weight is awesome though..
