I love the fact Nokia is carefully watching the market and trying to go back to the days when it originally started. The issue is they are not still absorbing into current needs and as always tries to cut corners and charge high prices. They need to be like Xiaomi and Asus in pricing. They should be ready as Micromax, Asus and Huawei for bringing qualitative change. Design-wise its kind of better. They could have simply increased the camera to 5mp with flash and for front-facing 2-3.15mp is O.K considering the segment its addressing. Could have been a bit creative about the screen size. The ram and the speaker too could have gone under the knife. Keep the OS design a bit more simple for young and middle aged business users with all the new flashy things. Make it more music friendly and file-sharing. I would personally love it had a feature where the mobile could be connected to TV and Videos from the mobile be played from it on TV Screen, like old and new TV Sets without heating up. Radio channels too with some rippling old winamp screen effects.
It's hard to find a feature phone that is reliable on the market in 2015 that is reliable and actually functions realistically. I believe that Microsoft are going to right way to show the market different. Not everyone needs a smartphone. Some people might want a secondary phone or just don't need the additional features, I agree with you anonymous post below.
processorSD, 28 Nov 2015The old microUSB v1.1, that's a downgrade as compared to microUSB 2.0 in Nokia 130 and Nokia 2... moreare you OK????? it's a feature phone.. what do you expect snapdragon 820.. full HD display... 4gb ram.... be realistic

Thanks for attention rural areas and those people which like only call and long battrry life and some advance feature. Thnks nokia.. Make in india. Dis phone really indian rurall
Instead of launching the phone with good specs Nokia launching a phone with 16mb ram and 65k colors with low PPI...its weird to expect such things from nokia
The old microUSB v1.1, that's a downgrade as compared to microUSB 2.0 in Nokia 130 and Nokia 222. Nokia 230 should have 480p IPS LCD display, minimum 128 mb Ram,3G compatible, and USB 3.1 type C connector.
This phone is a very good feature phone from Nokia with very good features .
It is very great to have a 2 mp back and front camera both with flash ! Just amazing ! BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE WI-FI AND PROBABLY DOES NOT SUPPORT WHATSAPP.
Thois phone would be the great one if it is android phone with video calling option
plz anyone tell me is it 3g compatible and does this phone saport hd videos i,m willing to buy this phone
It would be a great phone if it would have 480p screen and 3.2mp back camera with 480p@ 30fps video recording and 2mp front camera with 480p@ 30fps video recording and 9.5 mm thin.
If it come with android OS it will be on the top of all other phone.i like to have this one in android OS
Nokia tactile version phone nowadays getting sluggish. They really degraded at processing hardware. I have own X2-02 until now, slow response even sending SMS, sometimes failed to sent with unknown reason. Nokia body built quality is excellent with fine finish closure but the electronics seem bad compared to old 3310 built. I don't think this $55-$60 cost phone by Nokia will better than X2-02 series. Nokia also didn't understand the essential of 3G connectivity and GPS for non-smartphone series.. just keep all days on their new model at 2G?? Why??
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2015240p@15fps -why?! Will it be just one person who try this feature?!yeah, I would buy instantly one of these...with 720p video. I don't think it's impossible, there are webcams at a dozen euro with that resolution
Basic Phone, 26 Nov 2015It's a B A S I C P H O N E humans!!

This one is beautiful! Nokia!Hahahaha...people don't understand it...
Really nice Nokia! Congrats to think about some people just need to communicate for low cost!
