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.
This phone has held up for months now
I decided to give this G'Zone phone a try and have LOVED it, better than any phone I've had yet. Nothing has cracked or broken, I've dropped it several times, and it is still going strong. I rely on my phone heavily in order to run my business, and it has been trustworthy and reliable. I'm tough on phones, but this one has done awesome so far. I just have to be sure I don't lose it in a snowbank somewhere.
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.

Great calling quality
Yes, the Samsung T259 makes for a good solution for those who don't want to be bothered with smartphones especially if calling is placed highly on the list. Moreover, it still packs on some useful features, like Social Networking access, but isn't accompanied with many complexities to confuse people.
Good voice calling
Overall, the Samsung Solid Immerse isn't a bad phone at all, as long as you're after something basic for phone calls and texts and not much else besides. The actual voice calling function is great and a lot better than on many much more highly priced handsets. Available from around Â£25 on contract or Â£100 SIM free, the Immerse is fairly affordable although perhaps not quite as cheap as we might have expected.
To wrap up, the Sony Ericsson Cedar is a charming, simple phone and appears to be another step in a green direction for Sony Ericsson. Not resting on the Greenheart theme, the phone also has an array of useful features such as a 3.5mm headphone jack and 3G. It wonâ?? t give a great online experience with a 2.2-inch screen and an un-intuitive browser, though the widget support is a nice touch to keep you connected. Another handset to consider is the Nokia X2 for an S40 alternative.
The Sony Ericsson Cedar is a classic candybar feature phone that's been given a shot in the arm to keep up with today's standards. Physically you've got the modern standards of a headphone jack and microUSB charging and on the software front you can browse the web, collect your email, view Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter, and find out where you need to go with GoogleMaps.
Home screen widgets
Overall, the Cedar is a good all-rounder that will appeal to those that want to keep their carbon footprint to a minimum or simply those that are after a bargain. This mid-range fearture phone is clearly not a smartphone, but then if you're after something affordable and functional then it's certainly worth considering. The elegant styling certainly gives it a boost, although it's ultimately let down by its irksome web browsing.
3G and Bluetooth connectivity
The Cedar is yet another likeable addition to Sony Ericsson's eco-friendly GreenHeart range, offering impressive functionality and attractive aesthetics for an eminently reasonable price. It's just a shame that irksome Web access and occasional social-networking issues spoil the overall impression.
