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. It's capable of taking some knocks and the battery lasts a month, but it feels awfully...

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: First Look


At around £13 with a 35-day battery, the Nokia 105 is the perfect back-up phone.

If you’re fed up of your smartphone battery dying at the end of the day, the Nokia 105 promises 35 days standby time, making it a great choice for festivals or holidays - anywhere you don’t fancy taking your expensive smartphone. Priced around €15...

The Nokia 105 is an incredibly cheap basic mobile phone. It has few features, but its low price and simple operating system could appeal if you just want a basic mobile phone for occasional use. We sent it to our lab to see what our experts had to say.

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...

Still holds up to its predecessor!


Great phone and does what it says, simple, small and does what a phone should. Was amazed it had up to date games such as Crossy Road and Doodle Jump, although only 5 free trials of them. and of course the classic (and free) Snake. -Phone has vibrate...
