4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, light, slim, well made phone that slips into your pocket, 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nokia 515 Sim-Free Mobile Phone - Black (Electronics)
Purchased this to replace my Nokia N96 which I used as my main mobile for 5 years. I've acquired HTC Desire HD smart phones and the like over the years through new contracts and upgrades but when I really only use my mobile phone to make calls, send texts and perhaps check the weather, I dont really need a brick of a touch screen smart phone.

Believe it or not I am a tech freak - two laptops, tablet, MP3 players, touch screen phones, desktop PC, Xbox 360, PS3, smart tv, but i just want a phone that does the basics and has a LONG battery standby life.

Very happy with this phone.

Date of post taken into consideration, but I always wonder why consumers who post this stuff - didn't just opt for a basic 9.99 argos pay-as-you-go? Why buy a phone which is actually slower than those entry level basics but more expensive? Seems daft to me, almost like they're trying to justify purchase to themselves.

I chose the 515 over a "9.99 argos pay as you go phone" because while I like a basic phone it does not necessarily mean I want a cheap, creaky plastic bit of tat. I wanted a phone that had a premium feel in my hand, something that felt like quality.

I've read the negative reviews that have since been posted for this phone and can only assume later phones were manufactured on the cheap/not made as well as the first batch. Mine feels solid. Any phone these days will twist. Hell, I'm pretty sure I could twist one of those bricks from the 80's if I tried hard enough. I dont have any niggles with software speed. It hooks up to the internet very quickly, etc, etc.

Pal, I don't know what you're talking about. Those entry level Nokias are pretty much the same (minus gorilla glass or alloy battery covers). But they share the same standard in build quality as more expensive handsets. What they don't really do is creak, they have injection mould support strips inside, they're pretty solid, scratch proof screens and you wouldn't be able to discern the difference.
