Nokia 301 review

 

3G, camera and microSD slot, what more do you need?

impressive battery life ; web browser ; nice camera functions

cheap Androids do more ; slow ; not desirable

As with the 105, the Nokia 301 will likely do very well in emerging markets, but with the advent of low-cost and feature packed Android handsets in Europe it will probably struggle to break through.

Nokia 301 Review: In Depth | Nokia 301

 

Read Recombu's Nokia 301 review. The Nokia 301 is a feature phone with a twist. Offering apps, 3G speeds and Lumia inspired design. But is it any good?

Premium design ; Advanced camera UI ; Three day battery life

Heavy, bulky for a feature phone ; Dated user experience ; Expensive
