Review :

This phone from Nokia is a bit costly as several other phones with Wifi and multitasking features are available in the same  price range. Also resistive touchscreen is also not that much good as compared to smooth and responsive capacitive touchscreens . Instead of Series 40 , Nokia should have given symbian on this phone. However if you are a Nokia phones lover and don't wanna compromise with standards , you can choose this mobile phone

Design and build : 8 / 10
Features : 7 / 10
Performance : 7 /10
