Excerpt: The new Asha 201 is a middle range mobile phone produced by Nokia. The phone comes in range of colours which, will be depended on the country. Here in the UK we have black or white. I own the black style which, looks smart and makes the phone appear smaller than it really is. You can buy Nokia made soft covers for the Asha 201, but considering the cost of the phone in the UK is £39.99 + £10.00 carriers top-up, and the covers are £12.00-£15.00, they are not cheap.
Pros: Calls, Text, Email, Lots od apps from the Ovi Store
Cons: Symbian Series 40, No 3G/Wifi, Prone to jave error or seeze up, Downloading speed very slow
Summary: bought this for my grandson, he wanted a phone like his older brother, he has a blackberry. He was happy with this inthat it has a querty keyboard,.and it does look like a Blackberry...however we put an O2 sim in it,..it worked for calls and texts,..but could not connect to Facebook, which he wanted..tried new settings etc, no joy..had to put in a Virgin sim, and now has Facebook,.
Summary: Great looking phone would have gave it a better star rating if I got this and it was actually SIM FREE as the title states it's actually locked to tesco so I'm now going to have to spend more money to get it unlocked but the person that I got it for loves it I do too :)
Excerpt: Despite looking like an older generation Blackberry, this phone is much stronger than any Blackberry I've ever owned. If, like me, you loathe or dislike the concept of smart phones and just want something affordable, durable and reliable, this is the phone for you. It comes with a few basic themes and you can manipulate the on-screen look of the phone to your heart's content - with close to no difficulty.
Pros: Strong and reliable - fantastic value for money .
Cons: Certain very bizarre faults begin to appear as the phone gets older .
Summary: This phone is average, I like the querty style keyboaurd, but unfornately find keys too small, great battery life, lasts about a week with average use. I am disappointed can't voice record or at least I cant't find how to instructions tell how to video but not voice record so assuming you can't, I wanted my granddaughter singing as my msg tone and can't do it. the headphones arn't much good either can't listen to music or radio outside Have had this phone since November.
