Of course it must be some Chinese manufacturer that "took ispiration from" Nokial. What's unbelievable is that it sells for $13 to retailers, and yet the manufacturer earns something, so the production cost is even lower.

why would you need wifi for this?
and the mp3 player is surely bad quality, so i would skip it also. camera is only good for mms, so the SD card in not needed.
fm radio might be needed in case of a world war 3, so I would leave it, just like the flashlight.

if they removed those, the price could be under 10$

why wouldnt u want to have wifi if u could, i would love to see how it works on this phone
if it has bad quality speaker, who cares, most people use headphones
people still use FM radio, even i do sometimes, i think uve missed this:

I have a nokia 105 that has a torch/fm radio but no camera but at this price, don't be expecting Lumia 1020 or Sony like performance. This really is reminiscent of a Nokia C Series from a couple of years ago though!

A joke ? I remember those days when those phones where 180$+, that's what we call technology ! I wonder if it supports Java (J2ME) ? This would be a reason why wifi is present for social networking (or webcam !), but for 13$ it's just perfect with all these features

For basic phones there is no need to look beyond Nokia...reliable, well build and good phone quality. Where I live the Nokia 1280 costs $ 18.
