only languages are in chinese or english!

sdeleng, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: I am multi lingual and bought this phone as I travel a lot. No Spanish or French or Dutch or German or Portugese in general settings. I can't return it as I am abroad now and only just discovered this. The predictive texting has to be switched off as despite choosing Spanish in message area, it does not work at all. Laborious. Ditto with other languages. Only one sim can be active at a time, so you miss calls to the other.

Phone looks great BUT Battery life is Poor

Siven, Amazon

  • Summary: I will not complain about the phone because it's looks beautiful and easy to handling, good value for money and dual Sim usage is wonderful. The big problem is the BATTERY is running out very quickly even on standby with dual Sims mode.

Great in principle, but don't expect it to last.

ReluctantReviewer, Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: It ticked all the boxes: cheap, nice keypad, good battery life, no unwanted frills--just a handy, light, cheap and cheerful phone for talking and texting, but with two SIMs each of which can be selected at ease without rebooting the phone. Except ... less than 5 months after it was received, and after very light use--(I don't like mobile phone culture and think of them as necessary evils at best)--it simply died. Without warning. Kaput.

Not worth for the price.

Smarc, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: When I say not worth for the price I really mean it. Even though the price is around £25. It's more like a toy than a gadget. Both hardware and software are in poor quality and hardly meet the quality parameters. I thought of returning it as it didn't accept 3 network. Then I swapped with my vodafone sim which is working on it. I will not recommend even for a cheaper price.

Disappointing

G. D. Wood, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: It promised to be the answer to the problem of carrying several phones. Well it does do that but at a price of reduced performance compared to other basic Nokia phones. Quality of sound is poor, The ringing tones and voice on the phone are both distorted. The reception of signals is also poor. If these shortcomings were sorted it would be a winner!

Not bad for the price but poor sound quality

Dave Waters, Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this phone wanting a backup for my main phone as it has a tendency to run out of battery very quickly. As a backup, it's not bad. It's fairly small and light, the battery lasts a lifetime compared with my main phone, and it's very easy to use. It's also very nice for texting, the buttons are comfortable to use and well spaced. The flashlight is pretty handy too. Now for the negative bit: The sound quality is terrible.

Think rationally

  • Summary: A phone with two 2g gsm sims We all know that N72, 6630 etc cells have 1050/1020 mAh power battery which are single sim phones. Now this is the phone with almost same power.How Can it give us efficient Talk Time? I think a dual phone should have a battery with AT LEAST 1500 to 2000 mAh power.

Faults of 101 from personal experience

Arjun Bhattach..., flipkart.com
18 March 2012
  • Summary: Hi All, I've been using this set for the last two months and I thought it's time for me to jot down my personal experience with this one. First I'll start with the faults of this set as I think these are the things buyers need to know before choosing this one: 1. The main problem I faced is, in a busy place where crowd and other noise is present, people complain that they can't hear my voice. They only hear distorted noise.
