A good approach from Nokia...expected price including taxes would be around 11500INR.
1. Qua Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset. In this price range it is good.
2. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection
3. IPS touch
and many more
missing features/Cones are:
1. No Flash Light : But normally people capture pictures in day. Quality of pictures cannot be captured even in night with flash as per maa exp.
2. RAM: Hmm 512MB not bad for a window phone as windows phone are well optimzed. but in this case little confused as it is a dual sim. Even then for a moderate user 512MB will be sufficient. But for those who love to play heavy games of 1gb or more than 512MB will be insufficient.
3. Front camera missing
Nokia could do some better like 8MP camera with HDR feature, front camera, flash light etc. in the price range of 15K.
Over all good phone in this price range.
good to have windows 8.1 but should have increase your RAM size, add front camera and a flash
initially i was also thinking the same, but now i realized that Nokia did not want to give us a high end lumia with dual sim, with this phone they just want to target people who use dual sim, and just bcz of tht they did nt buy lumia 520, as most of people in this budget use dual sim device,
and they included quadcore just bcz dual core in520 and this one almost costs same to them, to they opted for it
and those who are saying wp8.1 will work fantastic with even 256mb ram, tell me why still with wp8.1 no games that support with 1gb ram ap os, still do nt work with 512mb ram in wp8.1 ?
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2014This is Windows phone 8.1, operates smoothly even on 256 MB ram :D , androiders get used to 2g... moreGood experience.
I can explain that Windows Phone 8.1 will beat android in the future.
Toshiba, 03 Apr 2014512mb ram = fail This model is a failure from the start lineThis is Windows phone 8.1, operates smoothly even on 256 MB ram :D , androiders get used to 2gb as standard isn't it?
should be minimum 1.5gb ram and a front camera.
without front camera and low ram any device is worthless now a days. price 200 is effordable i think if ram and front camera added.
What bloody stupidy is this from Nokia.
Micro sd expansion upto 128gb on a $150 phone? Seriously?
Don't they know that a 128gb sd card from sandisk itself costs upto $800 ?
This is brainless from nokia. Why would a budget user who buys a $150 phone ever need 128gb? He/she won't even need 64gb to be honest.
Sd cards get corrupted or malfuction easily, getting more than 32gb is never a wise deal, you could easily end up throwing money.
A usb pen drive with 64gb or 32gb used via otg with your phone for storge or infact just store things on pc if there is too much data.
Nokia should have really worked on the camera.. Atleast 8mp camera and 1gb ram.
They will not do it because it will cannabilize their other phone's sale in lumia line that are below this standard yet priced higher. For eg: nokia lumia 625 , 720 and 820 and also it would damage sales of 520 and 525 that are highest selling phones of lumia series.
