this phone is very good. the design is a little bit unusual, but a combination of touchscreen and keypad makes it great. plus, it has 802.11n, and 9.6 slim body that makes suit to your hand. it is like a smaller version of samsung s8003, sony ericsson aino, and lg crystal. this three phones have 8 megapixel cameras and big amoled touchscreens. however, nokia is nokia and still the king of mobile phones, no one can beat them. this small fella has a resistive single touch display, but noticing on the videos, it works like a capacitive touchscreen, which is a really treat. good work nokia!
why, 21 Aug 2010why s40? It is not good. S40 s45 s 5000. Nokia should cancel all old things and try symbian3 ,... moreWhy comment like that?
Well, it is for the masses, for them to have a phone with all those features at a low cost. If you don't want it, then go make your own phone!
Pravakar sunuwar, 21 Aug 2010Dear people,,you all r just forgetting 1 thing...it's symbian s40 which lacks MULTITASKING....Clear your feats first, S40 is not anyway related with Symbian. It is a complete different platform based on Java. And S40 is not meant to multitask. It is simple featurephone platform.

RG, 21 Aug 2010is made in romania, bad phone, Nokia is going down.RG, what's wrong with you? My current Nokia has been made in Hungary, and since 2006 it has not failed on me. Great quality!
TJ, 20 Aug 2010there's something fishy about this phone.. i can't believe nokia is pricing this great phone a... morethere are some things that it doesn't have because they have to cut down on the price. like it doesn't have camera flash, it's not capacitive touchscreen, it's non-smartphone... but when you compare it with what you get... it's a good price to pay.
IMAN.DESIGN, 21 Aug 2010And its not Multitouch , actually ! An old type Smart phone we have here ! Then why the ratin... moreit's not a smart phone, and in this day and age, not all touchscreen phones are smartphones.
IMAN.DESIGN, 21 Aug 2010And its not Multitouch , actually ! An old type Smart phone we have here !
Then why the ratin... more@ IMAN.DESIGN: You too are NOT getting it... this is not a high end super-duper-mega-phone for 600€ (like iPhone), this is a phone at a much lower price with more features anyone could ever dream of GIVEN THAT PRICE (150€ after taxes, and that's the MSRP, so it will likely drop even lower).
@ why: Symbian^3 is not aimed at phones like this one, if you want Symbian^3, go buy a Nokia N8, only thing is, it is 500$ BEFORE TAXES
@ jayasurya: will be plastic at this price, the only thing made of metal on the outside is the battery cover
This is a great phone in my opinion, great features and hopefully great Nokia quality. Finally a lot of nice innovation for a candybar style phone. The keypad looks great... 2 hours max. to get used to it. I never had a "China style phone" everyone is complaining about... what are you talking about, what's wrong with it? Just two keys in a different position! Can't wait to get my hands on it when it hits the retail stores.
And its not Multitouch , actually ! An old type Smart phone we have here !
Then why the ratings is so high ?

Apple clearly does not want to level down to lower price segments and only wants to sell their phones to higher market segments. Don't assume that everyone will buy an iPhone since it has the "best" specs. you need to consider if they could AFFORD and ACTUALLY NEED/MAKE USE of it.
