Mammoth battery life
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 very much a back up, emergency phone which is capable of taking some knocks and deliver a battery life which can last you a month, but it won't be able to offer the experience we've come to expect from our mobile phones today.
Very cheap, dust and splash resistant, very long battery life
Strange that a phone like this should seem like a novelty, but it's so basic as to appear perverse. That barely-there price tag is what swings it though -- if you want to keep in contact while you're away, at a festival for instance, and don't want to risk your "real" phone, the 105 is a pretty good bet.
Solid camera performance
Is the Nokia N9 design up to scratch? Is the new camera good enough? The resounding answer is yes, bittersweet though it may be. MeeGo ordains Nokia's impeccable hardware with a form fitted OS, one that could even challenge the major players on the usability stakes and before we can celebrate, we must commemorate. For any Nokia fans out there considering this, you get our recommendation.
Simply gorgeous design
We love almost everything about the Nokia N9, and that bodes well for the Nokia Lumia 800 Windows phone that uses nearly identical hardware. We'd give the N9 a higher start rating, but the high price, extremely limited availability and Nokia's statement that they won't be developing MeeGo anymore make this phone more of a collector's device than an everyday higher end purchase.
Sensational Touchscreen, a beautiful curve and flush fit
Nokia N9 for ever as it seems to be the giant leap forward that the Nokia faithful were all waiting for while the rest of us deserted. If this phone is half as good as it looks a fair few of us could be going back to beg Nokia for forgiveness.
Our frustration is that the N9 doesnâ?? t deserve to die. In fact, Nokia has delivered a double-punch of compelling software and beautiful hardware: a device that earned curious, envious glances while we played with it in public, and a platform that was both instantly usable and consistently slick. We try not to play â?? What couldâ?? ve beenâ?? because, frankly, thereâ??
Innovative swipe gestures instead of button(s).
The N9 is a medium to high end smartphone from Nokia, running the open-source, Linux-based MeeGo operating system. MeeGo is a joint development effort between Nokia and Intel, though Nokia has substantially reduced its commitment to the platform after the announcement of the partnership with Microsoft and its Windows Phone software.
Superbly built hardware
The Nokia N9 is the best looking and slickest smartphone Nokia has ever built. It's a combination of superbly built hardware and slick, easy to use, elegant software. However, it's priced too high to compete with iOS and Android alternatives and we can't help but feel it's about 18 months too late.
Easy-to-use navigation menu
While German says the Knack "won't win any beauty contests," its size and design excel at being user-friendly. A compact 3.8 inches by 2 inches by 0.7 inches and weighing 3.6 ounces, it hosts a small monochrome exterior display that displays the time and caller ID. Flip it open and the Knack presents a generous backlit keypad with large keys and vivid 2.2-inch diagonal, 220-by-176-pixel display. A huge selling point for many is the streamlined six-entry menu, which makes navigation a snap.
Integrated FM radio
Targeted for growing economic markets as India and China, the Nokia X1 00 is immensely inexpensive and cheap music phone. Priced at just Rs.1700 in India, Nokia X1 00 allows budget-conscious users to use this phone and enjoy its good features. With an integrated FM radio, games, music player, 3.5mm audio jack, GPRS, flashlight, this Series 30 UIphone seems quite remarkable.Its 1320 mAh battery is capable of giving huge amount of stand-by time, some 61 days.
