Nokia 206 review

 

Struggling to compete with its Windows smartphoneofferings, Nokia is making a bid to grab the potential market forsecondary, budget-priced feature phones. The Nokia 105onlymade calls and sent texts, but the 206 includes web access (sortof), an app...

When you think about the good old candybar phones, nothing has been as popular as the Nokia 3310. With countless memes doing rounds over the internet, it could easily pass off as the Rajnikant of the mobile world. And the latest Nokia 206 can be termed...

Compact and sturdy build; Hot-swappable external SIM slot; Easy to use interface; Well priced

Lacks USB port; No 3G or Wifi; No WhatsApp support; Tad too glossy

Nokia Xpress Browser along with new Nokia SLAM file sharing services

Slow internet browsing and 64 MB internal storage, which is not sufficient and is below average

Nokia Asha 206 is a great option for those who want to keep up with the traditional candy bar form factor but looking for something new. Priced fairly, affordable the mobile provides a near to complete package for trendy mobile lovers.
