The new and latest Nokia 100 mobile phone seems like a remnant of some other Nokia phone only. Though some budget conscious buyers in India may vouch for it but it is clearly evident that it has nothing novel and exemplary about it. Nokia 100 can be bought a relatively cheap price of not more than Rs.1400 but it has nothing new added to it. Neither it has the novel looks or design, nor does it have any contemporary features. The only thing that makers claim is that its Nokia life tools and Nokia Money services will be very useful and relevant for its Indian buyers. It does not even have a memory expansion provision, enough battery backup or something other damn stimulating or attractive about it. It is a very simple and basic phone which people in India will easily recognize as a Nokia phone. It is economically priced, has a FM radio, supports polyphonic ringtones and has a flashlight option. That is all what Nokia 100 is about and one may be very well aware of its minimal specification before putting their hands on it.[ + ] Read Nokia 100 Review
The latest Nokia 100 has round edges, rubber keys and a candy bar form factor. This simple single SIM basic phone is the nearest pal of another Nokia phone, the Nokia 101 and differs from it only in some petty aspects. It has a 1.8 inches wide TFT color screen that displays 65 K colors and gives resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. It sports even more minimal features than Nokia 101 but has inculcated a flash light option. It has a conventional keypad with 5-way navigation key, distinct call & end keys besides volume keys on the sides. Nokia 100 weighs 69.6 grams and measures 110 mm, 45.5 mm and 14.9 mm in length, width and height. Nokia 100 can be bought in an array of colors like Festive Pink, Ocean Blue, Legion Blue, Coral Red and Phantom Black at an extremely affordable price.
Nokia 100 is equipped with a FM radio for the entertainment of its users in their free time with music and for that it is also capable of delivering good audio quality on its speakers. Nokia 100 single SIM phone also supports vibration alerts and polyphonic ringtones.
There is no camera integrated inside Nokia 100 and one cannot enjoy clicking pictures and shooting videos over this handset.
Nokia 100 has just the required amount of internal memory and that is enough to save 500 contact details and also manage enough call records. The phone does not have a memory expansion provision and that really handicaps its users who cannot accommodate more data even if required in this handset. One must be practiced to delete call logs and messages to make place for more in this phone.
A 850 mAH capacity BL-5CB Li-ion battery is housed in Nokia 100 for delivering 840 hours of standby time and 7 hours 20 minutes of talk time to its users. The battery specifications are quite appreciable.
Nokia 100 single SIM phone users do not stand a chance if they wish to browse, navigate or connect wirelessly through their phone. The phone does not facilitate any kind of local or Internet based connectivity. Nokia 100 does not have an inbuilt browser, a Bluetooth or a GPS receiver.
Nokia 100 single SIM mobile phone allows messaging and communication only via SMS.
Nokia 100 runs on dual band 900/1800 MHz frequency over 2 G GSM network.
There are games pre-installed in Nokia 100’s fun section to be played by its users in their leisure time.
The single SIM phone available in fantastic colors like Pink, Red and Black and Blue, the Nokia 100 has some nice and useful features too. It has typical Nokia design and looks which people in India identify and trust. Already available in market, the Nokia 100 is going to demand a price not higher than 1400 rupees. It has a FM radio integrated inside it along with a number of games. One can use it for significant purposes such as gathering information by availing services like Nokia Money and Nokia life tool. Nokia 100 is not a technology driven device, it is not made on a new concept but it has what a common man would require in his calling and texting capable mobile phone.
Nokia 100 is a basic entry level handset with a spec list that does not arouse much fascination or curiosity in almost anybody. A flash light option is no more cool or happening these days but has been integrated in Nokia 100. The phone is extremely cheap but is not worth a buy because it has no novel specifications. It is as if it is assorted from remains of some old Nokia phone. The color options are nice but the design of the phone is sturdy but not stylish. People do identify and trust the quality of Nokia phones but the Finnish giant has not been able to keep up with the kind of range other mobile makers have unveiled in the Indian market. It is disappointing that the Nokia 100 mobile phone does not even have a camera, expandable memory, music player like features which many cheap phones launched by domestic mobile makers have. Nokia 100 is absolutely not a great handset.[ - ] collapse
