Nokia 105 review

 

Feature phones are making a comeback!

super cheap ; mammoth battery life ; flashlight

no camera, no browser ; tiny screen

The Nokia 105 is a funny proposition for the European market as people won't be buying it as their main device and possibly not even as their second handset.

Nokia 105 review: How to get a free phone (and play Snake!)

 

As with all things in life you get what you pay for, and that is £10 worth of calls and texts. The free phone is a bonus, and will keep going much longer than the 30 days for which the credit is valid. This isn't a smartphone, so it's unfair to compare...

Nokia 105 review

 

No fancy operating system, no camera, no apps -- Nokia'sback-to-basics feature phone looks like it has nothing of interest.Except perhaps the price -- it's available SIM-free for as littleas £15. Full review

Very cheap, dust and splash resistant, very long batterylife

No camera, no internet, no apps

Strange that a phone like this should seem like a novelty, butit's so basic as to appear perverse. That barely-there price tag iswhat swings it though -- if you want to keep in contact whileyou're away, at a festival for instance, and don't want to...

Обзор телефона Nokia 105

Громкость динамика в Nokia 105 хорошая, однако мелодии в аппарате не самые удачные, большинство из них звучат средне, но не громко, предыдущая модель в этом плане была лучше. Зато виброзвонок очень достойный, мощный, если аппарат лежит в кармане брюк,...
