Pros: This is a cheap phone that does the basic things good. For the price it is ok.
Cons: Even that it is 3 years newer than my previous phone it lacks some of the functions. I was expecting an upgrade and it was not. At time of writing this review I have already switched to my old device and am looking to get rid of this Nokia.
Excerpt: This phone camera not so good,overall is perfect The Nokia 301 is based on the Nokia Series 40 platform and features a 2.4-inch display with a traditional alphanumeric keypad. It features a 3.2-megapixel camera allowing for a ton of editing and sharing options. Apps like Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp are also on board. The Nokia 301 is colorful - arriving in cyan, yellow, magenta, black and white.
Summary: "purchased this 31st july & the screen keeps going white/blank.ee say its a manufacturing glitch in a new design so tough luck,you pay your money you take your chance.really tough if I need to make a call & I,m having to repeatedly turn my phone on & off till It decides to give me a screen back.so beware folks & thanks for nuthin,ee.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for around a week now and I'm really impressed. I've replaced my old Smasung Galaxy S2 with this as I feel that I now have no need for a real smart phone. My tablet (Nexus 7) takes care of all tasks that a smart phone can do, but better. Sure it's a little bigger, but it can come with me most places. This phone essentially means that having a phone is cheaper!
Pros: Battery life, Solid construction, Most features are there
Cons: App experience is slow and annoying (FB), No support for music streaming services, Lack of wi-fi
"A great feature phone packed with useful features."

Pros: Good size, fair camera with some useful features, expandable memory, excellent keyboard, good call quality, nice text conversation feature. Price.
Cons: Can be a little slow at times. You need to be aware that this is not a smartphone so internet is not the best experience. Some say that the battery is not the best but I have found it adequate for me.
"nice unit overall - well made, has a quality feel."

Pros: price = less than GBP 60. Nokia familiarity - you instantly know where you are with it and there is nothing complicated.
Cons: Camera sound ; there is an option on the camera settings menu to switch off the really annoying camera 'shutter sound' but it doesn't save the settings permanently. The next time you use the camera, the sound is there again.
Summary: Nice wee phone for the price, fits comfortably in your hand, not too big, can see easily enough when out in daylight. Easy push buttons, wish I had purchased for myself before getting contract phone
Summary: It is a basic phone, my third Nokia and I bought it as a standby phone. When you only use the basic functions and close the 3G network, it works fine. The phone is made of good material and very light and stable, and the basic functions are functional and easy to use. A very good product of basic level phone,with very smooth input method, classic physical keyboard, music player and radio player, and good for the price.
