Works as it said, very good as backup phone

joevo2 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

It does what it says, great call and sms. Awesome battery life, i think it could last a week or more, as i just got this phone recently. but note that i've saw some review stating that the early batch of the phone which came with the frimware version 6.30 or those pre v6.65 version are having auto restart problem and auto activation of loundspeaker during call (press *#0000# to check), but as stated you can updated to the latest firmware by going to the nearest Nokia Care Centre, but you have to check with them whether they have the update or not. Other than that this phone is great, in terms of keypad and physical design.UI wise the phone is also pretty pratical with features such as calender and torchlight right at your finger tips. Pretty good call quality and responsive UI and of course the awesome battery life. using this phone as a backup phone for my samsung android phone, just perfect. Does what it says. for this kinda phone you just dont expect data support such as GPRS, EDGE or even 3G, forget about bluetooth, is just not made in mind for that kinda purpose. if you want that kinda feature this is just not the phone for you. The only thing i hope it has is a micro usb port as the standard for charging port has been change the the universal micro usb and data transfer

Nokia 100/101 WORST phone ever....!

v-mogeor has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I have bought this phone for basic calls and messaging. The Design is the worst, not very sleek, looks very bulky for a phone that does nothing much, the back panel cover is not seated properly [when I am on call, there is this squeaky sound it makes when holding it, very irritating], there is no proper grip to hold the phone [it keeps slipping], the graphics is horrible [some Indian designer must have done it, because these phones are being manufactured in India nowadays], the sound quality of the speaker is pathetic [there is some echo heard always on calls, because of the bulky size and open gap caused by the back cover panel and speaker. It boasts of a micSD card, but without Bluetooth or GPRS or USB, how does one expect to transfer music files to the microSD card? What a dumb feature for a phone that still cannot impress anyone!
Please do not go for this phone, it is one of the worst phones Nokia has ever designed. There are much better phones for the same price. Simple words this is the Worst phone......

Build quality 1/10 Bulky for a phone that does nothing much
Reception 2/10 Some what OK
Call quality 1/10 Voice echo heard due to reverberation from the bulkiness of the phone
Internet 1/10 No
Multimedia 1/10 No
Camera 1/10 No
UI speed 1/10 Horrible, not at all pleasent, some guy who is not at all talented must have done it
Everyday usage 1/10 Not comfortable
Text input 1/10 keypad is painful, no grip and harsh on the fingers
Display 1/10 Not at all impresive
Battery 1/10


  • None


  • Bulky
  • No Grip
  • No support for WAP/BT/USB
  • No good games
