For 3,500 pesos, this phone is not bad. Especially in the Philippines market where the dual-sim phones are limited to Samsung, MyPhone and Torque phones.
But this is a pretty basic phone. So don't expect too much.
Small keys but manageable with decent rubber-type keys. The other functions are a bit confusing at first, but easy to get used to after awhile. Orange and white lights for the qwerty keys.
There is an echo when you call but it does not affect the conversation at all. It's still pretty clear.
Memory integration is great too. My only request is bigger internal memory. 10MB seems a bit low, in my opinion.
I like the sound of my speakers. It's definitely better quality compared to my Nokia C3.
Feels a bit big though compared to the Nokia C3 (I have small hands... I'm a girl)
Battery is amazing. It lasted me 3 days of constant texting and calling with both sim cards.
I love how it always asks me which sim to use so I really just have to select. (I may love it now, but it the future it might be annoying... we'll see)
Built-in ringtones not that great so best to get a memory card
never tried using the internet. no plans
camera and video is decent for a 2 megapixel cam. i'd have to say it's better than the nokia c3
Alarm clock doesn't go as loud as my nokia c3, which sucks but it's fine.
You can't adjust the screen layout as much (because the top part must be the signal of the two sims) it's fine.
You also can't adjust the sim manager key. It can't be replaced. Let function keys available compared to nokia c3
Conversation sometimes messes up who sends the text. But it was the same with my nokia c3.
What else... that's it.
It's really just a basic phone. It's perfect for people like who just want to bring around one phone with two sims to simply call and text. that's it. Pretty good system to select which sim to use.
If you plan to do this to watch youtube or go on social networking sites... I suggest you increase your budget and select another phone :)
Hi,am interested in buying this mobile.. but most of the time i hear the major drawback as the resound or echo in mobile happens while speaking.. is that happen for all?? any solution for that?
kindly please ry.. thanks in advance
Very nice phn frm Nokia...nd guys som comnts are wrng...really good phn..
I am hearing my voice through the ear speaker and voice clarity is not so good. Is this only for my phone or is it drawback og Asha 200. Please Help.
In this set internet is not working. It is very slow. Don't buy this. Overall this set is not very well.
I am now using Aha 200.. But i cant use the modified opera mini for free internet browsing... i have the necessary connections... but it won't work.... please help me.....
I recently bought this phone. My experience so far is disappointing in terms of features. The display is good, call quality is good, speaker moderate. When starting the phone, I got SMS from Airtel that this is not GPRS enabled phone. However, the in-built Nokia Browser is working.
It seems over-rated for the hype. Not so great!
how many contacts can be saved in asha200 ? 1000....or 2000....or...unlimited ?
After reading all comments from our friends so far, my main concerns that need to be clarified before i decide to get Nokia 200 are:
1. Echo sound through earpiece while on call
2. Signal fluctuation when on call
3. Overall speed
Can anyone who own Nokia 200 help answer these concerns? Many thanks in advance!

Yes, you can disable your other sim, but only for specific settings. You'll choose to use/receive/send between texts, call, mms or packet data.

Yes, I found out that too. I already deletd my messages, my newly installed apps and games. Only to find out that it is the new theme I applied, that is causing the Not enough Phone Memory prompt.

renn, 15 Jan 2012hi guys! i wanted to know if i m on call do i here the echo of my sound??
plz help for this i... moreIn reply to Renn..
Hmm.. For me, the echoing sound is not that irritating. It's just that there are people who easily get irritated or so demanding with what they paid for.
For more information, just read my reviews before.
Susheel, 15 Jan 2012You are absolutely right kakay? Even I faced this problem in my cell.

Right. You cannot play songs or displaying Not Enough Memory on your phone. All you have to do is change your theme to nokia default themes pre-installed in your phone. So you can play mp3s.
