A review is needed when you gonna spend serious amount of money.
Great review, although I don't see the need to upgrade from my C3. 1½ years after purchase, my biggest gripe is how easily the screen gets scratched up. Has that been rectified on the Asha phones?

People have different needs and prefer different type of phones, I think GSMarena doing a good job reviewing all kind of phones, and i hope they don't stop reviewing low-end phones.
ARENA crew plz stop reviewing and wasting time for such crappy budget phones. You have not reviewed such phones like dell venue,acer iconia smart etc.But spend time to review different kinds of Asha. Of course it's not my job u decide what to review but as permament user of GSMARENA i'd like to share my opinion.
Its not a powerhouse, thats ok.
To me, this is what phones should look like. If you could fit the SGS2 dual core and 512mb ram in this phone, that would be awesome.
Reason I say this, is because I think this is the best kind of form factor for a phone. So sleek and stylish, compact and portable.. I miss this for a phone.. all the new phones have to try so hard to be sexy- cause they are waaay too big.
To me I loved the E6, and it was almost there, just needed a better app store - but man 4 days battery!! Unbelievable.
This would've been a great phone 2 years ago. Sadly the price of android entry phones dropping every month make this phone a non competitior.
But I love its design and it beats the E71 camera
Dr.U, 11 May 2012the only thing i need in any phone these days is a document viewer, and nokia, dont know why, ... more
Now we have enough CPU power inside this phone. I am sure they will attach the document viewer someday. Most likely, after you graduate.
Thanks for checking my comment.
302, 11 May 2012Keyboard is not good at all for typeing. Much better on C3.May be.
tough choise, 11 May 2012should i buy this or iphone 4s?How about android!?
pj, 11 May 2012No document editor? What is that keyboard for? When will nokia stop producing this kind of crap?
No they won't. That's one thing good about this company.
One thing they are quite right about this phone is that, "the C3 may still be an option if you really want bargain basement price". That's exactly what this phone is. No wonder why blackberry users hate this phone so much. Hahahahaha.

Humax, 11 May 2012This is a Blackberry killer.
No way. I have no idea why you say that all of sudden. I thought you two are brothers fighting each other at home. Are you!?
But I thought it was funny. You know why? Because there is little to choose between Nokia and RIM in some sense!
Either way, as the user of this phone, I WOULD NOT MIND AT ALL, no matter how blackberry user would say about Nokia. You know why? Because I don't like Nokia too. Hahahahaha.
I do love this phone, though. If you don't like it, you don't buy it. That's the way it is. This is Asha. People here would understand which one has a bright future.
the only thing i need in any phone these days is a document viewer, and nokia, dont know why, aint providing one in there s40 phones and still claiming them to be comparable to e series and androids.....!!!! cause as a student it sucks that in ur new phone u cant even prepare for ur presentations or view attached documents!!!!!!
Humax, 11 May 2012This is a Blackberry killer.it is a blackberry killer maybe in your dreams. blackberry is 1000x faster at internet browsing, email is stored in a super secured server of r.i.m., quality of materials and overall experience is 10x better at blackberry.
remember that nokia e61 was the first full qwerty mobile in the world, long before blackberry,in 2006 but have no success. i owned a nokia e 61 and it was a stupid brick, i gave it away after 1 months.
do you once for good understand that nokia big the biggest mistake not understanding that fast internet mobile access is the first priority of human been now???? blackberry and iphone shows the way since 2007, but nokia stand still and watch proud and stupid.
