Surprisingly, this Nokia 515 suddenly has become one of the best selling feature phone over recent months in my country. Many people here love the way it is, like aluminum back cover and the Gorilla Glass, especially the White version, however, this version is hard to find here.

no its true sadly the keypad is not of good quality...i had to literally sell the phone afte... moreThat's weird. I only saw the scratches on one picture. And the designers said on their interview that the material was supposed to be scratch resistant although a commenter on that article complained about scratches.
Hope it's just the first few batches because 301 has low phone memory.
I have purchased Nokia 301 on 05/11/2013 from Nokia Showroom at the Price of Rs-5500, although i went for Nokia 515 and Had use it in that Nokia Showroom but finally i decided to go for Nokia 301, So now i have been using 301 from 12 days and my experiance is, Its a Good mobile, build quality is good, feels good in hands, back cover is not solid as my old nokia x2, Good disply, Camera is 3.2 mp but i think my x2, 2 mp camera is far better then this 301, disply support mp4 audio and video formet of 320×240, Charger is new age type usb charger, we can share internet and sd card files with pc by pc suit, battery backup is decent not that good, keypad is not too good but its ok, Call sound quality is verry good, Music sound quality is not verry good again my nokia x2 win here, also 301 has not good sound when i connect it by using headphone, its affordable phone with some good feature so you can go for it. Nokia 515 is verry expensive Rs 10299, nokia 515 have only one good thing that it has 5mp with flash and metel body but i have use it, experiance it nokia showroom that camera pict quality is no verry decent, nokia 515 keypad is verry small to use and not comfortable at all, so Think before you buy any phone.
