Excerpt: I have been using Nokia all my life. And my last Nokia was a lumia 820 witch was perfect. And decided to go for a simpler one, after some searching and comparing I end up choosing a Nokia 515. And it was a complete disappointment from Nokia. I think Nokia should release similar phone but fix all the issue because this design overall is perfect.
Pros: NIce Design, Sound Quality (OK)
Cons: Need paper clip or similar object to remove back panel, Battery life last no more than 2 days, cant use led flash as torch light(no app available), since no WiFi, can't use whats App or YouTube, keep hanging, no flash when video recording at night
Summary: The phone got delivered pretty fast - within 8 days! I wasn't expecting that. I opened the packing and it was love at first sight! This phone is absolutely beautiful. I've been using this phone for over a week now and the call quality is great. It comes with a headset which I use for music and calls at times. I bought a 8GB MicroSD card for music. I don't really care about MMS or WAP, but I'm still working on getting this IMEI business sorted.
The more i use it the less i like it. And I really wanted to like it.

Summary: It is a GSM phone. It is unlocked. It can be set to English. Word of warning. Since it is not available in US, ATT's network detects it's IMEA number as some blackberry smart phone and it will try to add a data plan. I went to an ATT store and had them change the imea number to all one's which is a generic dumb phone. We will see if their network keeps it that way.
Excerpt: The Nokia 515 is having slim beautiful aluminum chassis with a 2.4-inch QVGA display protected by Gorilla Glass 2. It's just launched today in Pakistan in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants. Its a very nice feature phone but too expensive. Price in Pakistan is 16,550/- around 160 $ . In this price people can have full featured smartphone having 1gig of RAM. Nokia needs to keep there prices down.
Summary: Dreadful, not able to sync to PC or Nokia suite (Nokia website ambiguous on this as product page appears to have sync features), so had to laboriously import via export/import, email: simply could not get that to install either after calling Nokia, T-Mobile and BT internet, flaky connection to 3G network, very unreliable all-in-all a miserable experience. The phone is quite slow/unresponsive in use and Bluetooth problematic too.
Summary: I have had my eye on a the Nokia 515 Silver phone for a while, so was glad to see it in stock again at Amazon. I arrived earlier that expected and, since receiving it earlier this week, have bought another (a spare Nokia 515 Silver), so that I can have a replacement when the one I now use gets old and a bit battered. Nokia phones are my favourite, so my review is biased to some extent.
