My brother bought me this Nokia 515 from Dubai since it is not available here in the Philippines. It comes with the latest software version 10.34. The latest software version has a good battery life contrary to what others claim. One thing I noticed is the absence of equalizer in the music player contrary to gsmarena says in its review.
I have been using N 515 for the last 3 days just for voice calls and now 40 % charge is left which is satisfying , sound quality is better and camera is not so good as compared to other phones 5 MP cameras. It feels so stylish and premium with golden color! I have not used its 3G service, but there is a built-in option for it. Overall, it is costly for a feature phone like it.
Adoki, 18 Aug 2014Hi, does Nokia 515, support, watts app application?Yes
I have been using Nokia all my life. And my last Nokia was a lumia 820 witch was perfect.
And decided to go for a simpler one, after some searching and comparing I end up choosing a Nokia 515.
And it was a complete disappointment from Nokia.
-Battery life last no more than 2 days
-cant use led flash as torch light(no app available)
-since no WiFi, can't use whats App or YouTube
-Need paper clip or similar object to remove back panel
-no flash when video recording at night
I think Nokia should release similar phone but fix all the issue because this design overall is perfect.
Briany, 12 Aug 2014Love this Nokia I had an android touch screen which I hated running apps and updates all the t... moreWhen searching in contacts, can you search in random order or precisely the name you want to find?Example:In my s60 if I type Nick,a list of all nicks will come up,but in some older devices you have to remember if there is anything before Nick.I'm asking because specs say that this is s40 but 6th edition ,so I wonder if they changed that.
Nokia 515 is a failure! The battery does not go more than two days doing just call. Unplug night, in the light of the sun is not seen nothing. Softwer v.10.34 fairly slow Shte is scandalous. Do not buy this phone, you will regret it ..
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2014Why can't I get one of these in Canada? I really like this phone.You can order this phone from e-bay or other sources. Most like from Hongkong. I ordered mine from Hongkong and in black, now I am ordering the same phone in white for my wife. It's the most beautiful phone ever.
Sorry about the question but when I connect my headset with call key to my Nokia 515, it writes out "Accessory not supported". Is it real or does it have setup in phone about this headset with call key?
majes85, 27 Jul 2014Hi.I was take a format,but it dont help.I dont use whatsup or viber.It's very good phone,but w... moreits a beautiful basic feature phone.
flashlight is there but u can't use it as torch, eventhough u install apps for this still u won't be able to make the light to stay.
to save battery do the following which is very very crucial:
menu-apps-my apps-notifications-open this go to settings, disable whatsapp.
facebook,twitter & whats app are inbuilt apps.
but u won't be able to use these apps as it drains out the battery very very quickly.
don't register in whaps app thru this phone.
i don't think someone will use these apps in a feature phone for that u should buy a smart phone.
u can browse the internet in this phone, check ur mails(normally thru the internet site)do not use push mail or phone mail exchange servers.
to save more power
menu-settings-display-backlight to one block, backlight time out within 10 secs.
menu-settings-connectivity-mobile data-off(this means u can't use internet, but whenever u want to use the net, just switch it on.)
menu-settings-phone-device updates-auto update should be never, whenever required manually update it.
much better if nokia put secondary cam. and wi fi at this phone , it screen protection is Corning gorilla glass i thought this phone is touch and type
majes85, 27 Jul 2014Yes,i see clearly when the display is on full bright.I think that i solved the problem using w... morebattery drain fast within 12 hours. soft version 10.34.pls help to stable battery.
sak, 01 Aug 2014 many people still love these types of phone (button phones) like the c5, c3-01 .i hope Nokia ... moreWe can dream, but it's not going to happen now that Microsoft has taken over. Perhaps in ten years when Nokia can reenter the handset market?
viktor, 15 Aug 2014is it an android phoneNo, the 515 is a S40/Java OS device.
I find it difficult to upload picture from the internet, how do I do that?
