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.
Good Festival Phone
Basically one I can use for nights outs and festivals and for this purpose it works really well. On its plus side its got a never ending battery, facebook is limited but workable for messaging and status updates, memory card surport up to 32GB for use of a pretty decent mp3 player ( a lot cheaper than buying a iPod), its solidly well made and general operation such as messaging is quick. Also if it gets lost or stolen its not the end of the world.
In terms of looks, mid-range phones are getting rather nice, as the 6600 Slide shows. The external hardware design is neat and pocket-friendly and battery life is good. However, Nokia could have offered more built-in memory and repositioned the microSD slot so that it doesn't lie under the battery. The camera is a bit of a let-down
A few blue details, such as the blue navigation key, add a little flare to the already stylish phone.
If you're not bothered with having every feature under the sun and want a phone that's small and easy to use, the Nokia 6600 Slide is it. While it's not going to wow your friends with its amazing features, it does fit in your pocket easily and will text and make calls with no hassle whatsoever
Sure, the Nokia 6600 Slide is a neat looking, smooth and well-built piece, packing in the essentials for a 3G mid-level mobile. It delivers a good music performance, and has a reasonable if unspectacular camera. But under the surface it's a standard Nokia S40 handset with little to excite upmarket phone buyers. Still, if you're after an attractively designed compact sliderphone, the 6600 Slide's worth a look.
After the success of the E50 from Nokia, there was a demand for a something better in a similar package. That's when Nokia launched the E51. While the E50 was promising for an average user, the E51 packages power that'll suffice for demanding users. Can the E51 provide the power that many users expect with its conservative design? Let's find out.
The Nokia C5 is a very capable smartphone by Nokia.
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.
Call quality was good and we didn't encounter any issues during our review period of about a week.
The Nokia C5 offers a simple candybar design and good range of features without being too costly. It won't blow you away, but it shouldn't disappoint either.

The Nokia C5 is a straightforward smartphone which combines ability with simplicity.
The Nokia C5 may not be as advanced as most smartphones but its affordable price tag means it is competing with the likes of the HTC Tattoo, a budget touchscreen phone. As an alternative to a handset with a touchscreen, and for simple communication, the C5 should compete well full review coming soon.
Clear and familiar menu
W ith the C2-00, Nokia has added a neat and very simple Dual-SIM cell phone to the portfolio. The Nokia C2-00 phone, available for only 55 Euros, has a clear and familiar menu and has standard functionalities such as Bluetooth and an audio recorder. The buttons are clearly lit up so that you can see them well in the dark.
Great build quality
Priced at Rs 2700, the Nokia C2-00 offers great build quality, decent design, and a relatively pleasant UI. A music player and email app are some of its strong points. Moreover, the hot-swappable SIM card slot is a unique feature, though it has to be said that very few will find it useful. The phone has its shortcomings, but the reasonable pricing makes it a logical purchase even if you are not looking for a dual-SIM mobile.

Good quality music player software
Nokia hasn't really done a great deal that's wrong with the Nokia X3 Touch and Type. Making the S40 operating system touch aware breathes a bit more life into it, and there are some very positive features such as long battery life and good build quality. But at this pricepoint, the competition is fierce. Android already has its place firmly staked out, and we think it can only push Nokia harder as time rolls on.
A budget-conscious music phone with a mixture of touch and keypad input? The X3 hopes to appeal to a wide audience, and has the feature set to do just that.

sleek and stylish slide phone
Nokia X3. The Nokia X3 is said to be the latest launching from Nokia cell phones. It is the first series 40 based slider device which comes with Ovi store support.

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.
