Bought this phone on the beginning of January after I sold my iPhone 5s. The reason was, all smartphone screens are too small for my eyes. I tested also Galaxy Note 4, this was ok by screen but totally uncomfortable for calling. So I am using two devices right now, iPad Air for internet, emails etc and Nokia 515 for calling. Indeed this an excellent phone for calling and texting, call qualty is great, signal is strong as volume. Battery lasts for me about 10-12 days without charging. My advise, do not think it is a smartphone because it is quite expensive, it is simple mobile phone. You can use internet only for sending taken photos or something similar, not for browsing or social media. Also do not expect apps could be downloaded frommsomewhere... Overall build quality is analog to iPhone 5/5s which is best built smartphone evr by my opinion. Indeed Nokia 515 was intoduced only few weeks before iPhone 5s, in the last days of August 2013. It is also last device introduced before there was anounced to sell Nokia mobiles to Micrsoft, so from this point is is a bit nostalgic also...

Is the scratching limited to a few batches or to black units only or both of them?

Nice phone, but battery life sucks. A daily rechage is essential. The battery needs to be twice as big. What's the point of a dumb phone if the battery lasts no longer than on a smartphone?

Nothing beats "dumb-phones" in the simple job of making calls without the recharger on every 12 hours.
good looking phone just wondering what format of videos can be played on it?

Having a smartphone doesn't mean you have to use all the features, but paying more for an uderpowered dumb-phone, just because you don't need those features, just seems weird. This thing has got 64 Mb of RAM, you can actually feel, how slow it is, especially when doing something with the camera and pictures
this is the best phone for people that are not fond of smart/android phones.i have used it for a year,dropped it several times but it still works.its durable and best for just calling and texting.its internet is also good.

Agree this phone is not made to perform like smart phones but the truth is that it hangs and lags during simple browzing and making calls
Pero , 01 Sep 2015Please I need Nokia 515. Perog., I am a victim. I bought it for 140 dollars. It hangs, and freezes often network issues and battery drains fast. It worth only quarter of its price. I do not recommend. Buy any other model only the built material is good. In the inside it is dumb

But additionally I demand good standby time. That is the biggest dissapointment on this model. I have everything turned off, even no 3G. Used only for calls, some messages. Instead of "up to 912h standby" it can do only 1/10 of that. 4 days max. And that is 2014 phone. My 8 years old Ericsson K510 (up to 360h standby) beats it. Conclusion - don`t trust Nokia "official data", instead read comments and reviews.
