Nokia Asha 200 Review
The Nokia Asha 200 left us with mixed feelings about its in-call audio performance. Voices through the earpiece are sufficiently loud, yet pretty muffled, thankfully not to the point where understanding the other party gets too difficult. On the other side of the line, our voice is loud enough to be understood, but accompanied by hints of distortion and digitizing.

Up to 7 hours of talk time is what you will get out of a single charge, and that is more than acceptable. If left in stand-by mode, the phone's battery will require a charge after a whole month if a single SIM card is used, or after 3 weeks if two of them are installed, and these are pretty good figures as well. Additionally, the phone can deliver the impressive 52 hours of music playback, which is comparable to what the hottest of smartphones are capable of.


Conclusion:

Considering that the Nokia Asha 200 currently costs under $90 off contract, there is quite a lot that you get for your money, so we would gladly recommend getting it if you need a low cost dual-SIM device. It looks good, has a nice physical keyboard, and comes with a whole bunch of social networking features, which makes it especially suitable for young users.

Software version of the reviewed unit: 10.60

The reviews are not comparisons. The review are based on the the type of hardware, type of phone and price. So saying that it's good that it has the same points as the note is stupid.
