Nokia 208 Review

Here is Nokia's one more user friendly and extremely affordable gadget for the year 2013: Nokia 208. Folks who still love the conventional keypads and have not been overwhelmed by the craze of smartphones will find 208 to be the perfect little companion for them. On the other hand, even smartphone owners can put this lightweight gadget in their pockets as a backup phone.

Weighing 89.6 grams, the phone possesses a 2.4 inches screen with a 256 K color display and 240 x 320 pixels resolution. With an overall length of 4.5 inches, the phone is small enough to be a handy gadget for you.

As simple and affordable as they are, Nokia’s cell phones are gradually receiving minor additions for the purpose of introducing them to today’s hi-tech world. For instance, there is now HSDPA for rapid internet connectivity and browsing. Nokia 208 is also a storehouse of several modern apps. Social network apps are among the most important of these luxuries which are also found in this new, ordinary looking cell phone.

Moreover, one more feature which makes the handset a little advanced is the slot for a micro-SIM. Today, thin smartphones have compelled numerous users to make the switch from their old mini-SIMs to micro-SIMs. Although they have been harder to deal with at first, micro-SIMs sit inside almost every handset now. Therefore, if you want to use 208 as a backup, it will be highly convenient for you to just switch your micro-SIM between your smartphone and this backup cell phone.

The phone will offer you a high level of reliability in the form of its 1020 mAh battery. For a smartphone, this power seems extremely low. However, it will serve a simple cell phone like Nokia 208 really well. You will have around 500 hours of stand-by time. Therefore, the phone will always be available for you whenever you need it as a backup.

The design of this phone is much like Nokia’s 207 having a black front and a colored back with the color options of cyan, red and yellow.

Here, you will not be deprived of the great features of video capturing device. Although a resolution of 1.3 is not attractive at all, the phone still helps you capture stills as well as videos.

The internal memory of 256 MB and 64 MB of RAM are extremely low to store all those photos or video. However, if you are really going to put that camera to some serious use, you can avail the phone’s memory card slot for additional 32 GB. In this way, you will also be able to make room for all your other data including an entire library of music files.

With Nokia 208, it can be concluded that the company has improved the quality of its ordinary cell phones. Therefore, now you will get a little more than what you expect from this low cost device.
