AnonD-204598, 02 Dec 2013My 1 week usage pros/cons about nokia 208
good battery life... moreDownload directly on to the phone memory from www.whatsapp.com/s40/WIWhatsApp.jad
No need of microSD memory card. Runs without any fuss.
Neither Nokia nor WhatsApp has listed 208 model support in their sites.
But it work for me.
Note - I use ONLY single sim; Do NOT know if that makes any difference in case you are trying with both sims ON
A.Z, 07 Dec 2013Friends which 1 sud i buy 208 or 301? if uve got extra bucks better opt for 301...i bought 208 but was quite dismayed by its rubber keypads, micro sim etc etc so i bring it back immediately to where i purchased it and luckily they agree to change it...so i buy the 301 adding 500php...its all worth it i tell u...buy nokia 301!!!
V, 04 Dec 2013@Rami 2020, But where is the loudspeaker located?open the back side cover and u can able to see the speaker available in the bottom
Dear Nokia 208 users, i wish to buy this mobile. Can u tell me about its video player? I mean is it playback a video file [3gp,Mp4 etc & video Reg: 320x240, 20/25 fps] in portrait mode on full screen?
Can u give us some video playback ScreenShot in portrait mood of Nokia 208?
V, 03 Dec 2013@ Rami2020, can you tell me where the loudspeaker and how loud it is? thanks!loud speaker sound is good but not more than micromax phones as they will yell like 110 DB :)
I have gotten this phone from w electronics and the first one had an screen spot issue. They were great to replace it and this one works just fine.
-dual sim works great and simple
-really great feel in hand
-stable os and apps
-whatsapp works if you copy it manually to the phone/SD card
-camera is great and images look clean
-sound quality is great
-edge is fast even on google maps, twitter and weather app
-battery life is not great: 1 sim about 3 days, 2 sims less than 2 days
-when i have two sims in, and does not matter what carrier sim i use it says the storage is not ready.
battery could be better, my GX200 last 5-7 days with both sims even after 3 years of use.
-ear piece sound is low and a bit muffed
-speaker sound is really low and unclear
-microphone does not pick sound beyond 1 meter away
-3G could not test in USA since the radio bands
-does not ring loud or the alarm is really quiet
I would get C2-01 or Nokia 2700 Classic over this. I also got a Nokia Asha 309 and that was worst than this. Keep is classic Nokia do not mess up this phones too.
V, 03 Dec 2013@ Rami2020, can you tell me where the loudspeaker and how loud it is? thanks!not too good, and not clear... not happy with mine, considering getting a c2 or 2700 classic
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2013Do both sims need to be micro or just one? Plz tell me.yes, both
@ Rami2020, can you tell me where the loudspeaker and how loud it is? thanks!
