I used it three weeks: Battery is terrible. Instead of 35 days on stand by you have max 2-3 days. I put everything off (Blue Tooth, data connectivity).
I returned it for verification of battery, but all vendors are claiming that Nokia is lying about stand by time. But I need a phone with that capacity...
i updatade mt nokia 301..then it has many more doubts..4n signal is very poor after updating..and 3g singal is not there...what to do ???
Im in need of purchasing 5K essential mobile.
My choices are Samsung S5610 Nokia 501 or Nokia 301. Please suggest me which is better.?
Bought one.Used for a brief period. Sound qulaity and call quality is good. Big screen and normal use expect 2days battery life. Camera is nice with panoramic shot. Nice balanced weight. Good keys with this PHONE.Very nice for people who want a good phone.
Got my 301 last week. Like it but have to charge battery every night. Do nothing but receive calls, send sms and make calls. It says a 2G talk time should be 20h, max standby on 2G 888h;
This mobile is allmost good but onely one thing i couln't understant that its timing never gives accurate. Every 2/3 days its giving 1minitue less thant current time.

1.can someone tell me the call quality and does it have a good loudspeaker ?
2.how long can the battery last for minimal use(only for calling and answering ,maybe 1-2 per week hearing music) ?
3.does it lag sometimes maybe or does it have any other problems (please this is important) ?
i would like to hear a few answers about my questions from different users
Just brought the 301 today and I quite like it! Series 40 operating system....old but user friendly! Let's hope that the battery will live up to it's standards unlike some of the reviews I have been reading here! Wish me luck!
Kannan, 03 Aug 2013Hi-guys, Dont purchase Nokia 301 Dual Sim Mobile. It's battery is awfully bad - not lasting f... morebrother. all i can say is that this phone is a good quality set released by nokia after a long time. they gave us poor quality ones and this is a good looking phone. good display,camera and good battery back up.
As nokia doesn't fix the battery and voice quality problems of Nokia 301, I'm looking for alternatives. Recently I've found the Alcatel One Touch 2005, but Gsmarena hasn't got any info on it. Some links:
It looks beautiful. But I don't know anything on battery or voice quality. Will it be better or worse than nokia 301? Any suggestions?
My first cell phone was an Alcatel 301 One Touch Easy (same number as the nokia 301!), and it worked very well. So perhaps I will give a try to 2005.
