Unparalleled photo & video quality, Lots of manual controls
With so much versatility behind it, like its various shooting modes and useful lossless zoom, it'll be hard for consumers to not consider this handset. However, its $300 on-contract price point slows its momentum down, seeing that it's still widely viewed as a pricey thing - and that's despite the fact that the 32GB iPhone 5 is priced the same. If we had to best describe this, it's essentially a Nokia Lumia 920 with a 41-megapixel camera. Sounds pretty accurate, right?
Brings a number of new software features
Better yet, it's Nokia that has delivered one last time. It's not the fact that they may never do it again that makes the Luma 1020 special. And it's definitely not why we're heaping praise on the phone. On their way out, Nokia are looking back at a lifetime of achievement. One last view from the top.
Capable of taking phenomenal photos
The Nokia Lumia 1020 faces an uphill battle: Not only is it competing against heavyweights such as the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5, but it is also fighting against the stigma surrounding the Windows Phone OS. The Lumia 1020 is an excellent phone with one of the best all-around cameras out there, but its AT&T exclusivity and older hardware make it a hard sell. If you're an AT&T customer who has been curious about Windows Phone, I strongly urge you to pick up the Lumia 1020.
Fantastic camera, brilliant way of handling zoom
Take the very good Nokia Lumia 920 and graft the Nokia PureView 41 megapixel camera onto the back and you've got the Nokia Lumia 1020. Even better, tweak it with second generation image stabilization, some brilliant image processing software and handy image editing tools and you've got a camera that matches or beats most point and shoots and some DSLR cameras, despite the smaller lens.
Excellent build, Great Keypad
Available for around Rs 3300, this deivce offers excellent build quality, chic design, and user-friendly interface. 3G connectivity and a USB-port would have further sweetened the deal, but unfortunately some smart buggers at Nokia thought that these features would have been a tad too much for a phone in its price bracket. Despite these absentees, the Nokia Asha 205 is a very good phone for the price.
Good build quality
The Nokia Asha 302 is your standard Series 40 affair. It doesn't have a touchscreen, but it compensates with a physical QWERTY keyboard, trying to appease those users needing such kind of input option. In terms of hardware, Nokia has done a remarkable job. There aren't many phones at this price point that can offer such build quality. Unfortunately, this handset falls victim to its software, which is unintuitive and buggy.
Good build quality
All in all, the Asha 302 is neat little messaging phone that feels well built, has a good keyboard and decent range of features. However, its small screen makes web browsing a bit of a chore and for a similar price you can now get entry level Android handsets that are arguably easier and more fun to use.
Impressive features list
The Nokia Asha 302 is a feature phone that could give a few smartphones a run for their money with its impressive features list. For starters there's both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity so you can browse and access social networks quickly. The centrepiece of the phone is a full qwerty keyboard presented BlackBerry style beneath the 2.4 inch landscape screen. The 3.2 megapixel camera is a nice addition, though it's not quite up to the standards of high-end smartphone cameras.
Build quality feels reassuringly pricey and sturdy
The Nokia Asha 302 joins the growing band of new Series 40 handsets designed for those that love to keep in touch and use social networks on a budget. One of its standout features is its QWERTY keypad. Where would a messaging phone be without it? Here we take a look at how it performs, in our Nokia Asha 302 QWERTY keypad review.
This is accompanied by a front VGA (640 x 480 pixel) camera for two-way video calling, so the iPhone 4 isn't the only new handset with video calling.
The Nokia 6700 Slide is a very nicely designed, small format, slider handset. The front buttons are either large or constructed so as to be easy to hit, so that the keypad is hardly ever needed.
An affordable candybar phone with an excellent battery life, the Nokia 6700 offers a good choice of features including FM radio, a voice recorder and built-in GPS. The HSDPA phone supports downlinks to 10Mbps and uplinks of 2Mbps. The Nokia browser doesn't provide the best browsing experience but Opera Mini is pre-installed and is more enjoyable.
However the slide mechanism is pleasant enough and the phone sits nicely in the hand, although the keyboard could be a little big bigger for faster finger flicks when texting and the like.
Overall, this is a phone that might appeal to those that just want a simple phone, but we can't see why you'd have it over the classier and more stylish Nokia 6700 Classic.
The headphones plug in to the micro-USB socket, which is a fantastic change from the huge, breakable, proprietary socket that's often found on Nokia phones.
The 6700 Slide looks like a smartphone for the masses, with a good mix of technology you'll probably use and expensive tech you might not find you'll need.

The Nokia 6700 classic performs really well as being a phone as well – in-call quality is really good, voices sound loud, clear and realistic on either end of the line.
Alongside of the Nokia 6300, the Nokia 6700 classic features an overall design that's been streamlined and made even neater. It feels somewhat bulky, but we can live with that, because it's not every day that you can see such a high quality of workmanship.

excellent MP3 player
The only thing that might impress a consumer is the phone's metal casing. It is true that you pay a small price for what the phone has to offer, but there are other alternatives within the same price range that offer much more than the 6700 slide, such as the E5 or the C5.
Solid ergonomic design
To wrap up, there are very few surprises with this handset, though it comes in a bit expensive considering what it offers. Nevertheless, what it does offer is a robust candybar phone with a few good connectivity features and a good music offering. So, if that's what you're looking for, it will fit the bill.
Practically speaking, if you're looking for a better connected device, we'd recommend the Nokia X3-02 which comes with both Wi-Fi and a touch screen to facilitate web browsing.
3G not HSDPA
The Nokia C2-01 ends up being quite a disappointing handset. It suffers too much from its small screen, style-cramping operating system, and lack of features like Wi-Fi and GPS.
We can see how it might appeal to smartphone naysayers who just want a handset for voice calling and a little SMS action, but even such people might like to consider taking their £80 and looking for a smartphone alternative just in the interests of value for money.
Lightweight but not flimsy
The Nokia C2-01 will satisfy those who are after a basic old-school phone to do the basics. It's lightweight but not flimsy, is comfortable to text and dial on and is generally easy to use.
The camera is fairly decent for what it is but is by no means the best one out there. 3G allows for Facebook checking on the go but the screen size means that web browsing can feel a little cramped. But if you want a bare bones basic phone to call and text on then this won't really bother you at all.
Cheapest 3G Nokia phone
All in all the Nokia C2-01 is a great phone to have. It is extremely practical and functions well. With its fast Internet access, superb browser quality via Opera Mini, plenty of fun games to choose from and an extended life on music playback; the Nokia C2-01 is definitely a phone you want to consider picking up as your next and it will not hurt your budget as it goes for a modest US$95 making it currently the cheapest 3G Nokia phone on the market today.
Superb battery life
While you can get mobile phones for a tenner, unless you have a total disinterest in quality, style and range of function, the Nokia C1-01 is undoubtedly worth its slightly higher price tag. The low spec camera aside, the C1-01 has several features you simply don't expect at this price point, including a very good keypad, stereo Bluetooth and a Micro SD slot. The impressive call quality, strong signal reception and Biblical battery life are the icing on the cake.
A music player and FM radio
The C2-02 is a touch-and-type phone with a slide out keypad and a touchscreen. Combining the best of both worlds is a good concept, but the implementation is poor, with a small resistive screen making the user interface hard work. There are some good features, such as facebook & twitter apps, Nokia Maps, a music player and FM radio. But the phone is dual band only, so accessing the internet is very slow. The camera is poor, there's no GPS and the onboard memory is pitiful.
Good battery life
We appreciate Nokia's attempt to deliver an affordable smartphone but the dated Symbian^1 stands in the way of enjoying the almost full connectivity package and the 600MHz of processing power. Because of that, we feel that low-end Android handsets, such as the HTC Wildfire and the LG Optimus One, also have connectivity covered well and could be your alternative.
great battery life
The Nokia C5-03 perfect for those wishing to dip their big toe in the smartphone water but aren't yet ready for a more powerful beast. If you're not overly concerned with apps, look for ease of use and enjoy keeping up with your friends on the go and on a budget, then pick up a Nokia C5-03.
Out of the box this heavy dose of plastic is clearly evident, but it's only going to get worse with use as this finish shows up every blemish, scratch and scrape whenever the phone catches the light.
In budget smartphone territory, the Nokia C5-03's Symbian S60 OS doesn't feel as out of its depth as it did when rolling with the high-end, but it still feels way past its prime. Add the also-archaic resistive touchscreen and the Nokia C5-03 starts to sound more out-of-date than power suits and tie-dyed T-shirts. Â Â
The Nokia C5-03 is one of the best budget Symbian smartphones you can find.
The Nokia C5-03 is a nice touchscreen smartphone for those on a budget. It offers almost every standard feature and comes with a fairly good OS with limited application support. It is fast and sports a very good design. In this price range, it is a good buy. Also do check out this list of the best budget Android smartphones for more choices.
Mired in mediocrity.
Overall, we're a little non-plussed by the C5. It's an acceptable phone that's using an OS in dire need of updating - if we'd had Symbian^3 on here, it might have been a little different. But see past the battery life, and you'll realise the likes of the HTC Wildfire offer better specs, a more attractive device and at a lower cost.
Software is hopelessly outdated
With the war of the budget smart phones set to intensify in 2011, we can't see where Nokia's anaemic C5-03 fits in. There are much cheaper phones available that comprehensively outclass the C5-03, and Symbian is effectively dead. Our fingers are firmly crossed that it's one of the last such handsets we'll see from the Finnish firm.
Symbian S60 5th edition
We understand that Symbian S60 5th edition still serves a purpose in world where everyone wants a touchscreen, but not everyone can afford one. But in the UK, where weâ??re spoiled for (cheap) choice, we feel Nokia is actually doing customers a disservice by continuing to flog this creaking operating system.
Unresponsive resistive touchscreen
The C5-03 is another uninspired Nokia smartphone running the old Symbian operating system. With its unresponsive resistive touchscreen, poor camera with fixed focus, no flash and lack of adequate memory, it serves as a sad example of everything that's gone wrong with Nokia.
