The device has the Series 40 6th edition of OS which is found in majority of the devices of Nokia.
Design and Quality
The design of the device is similar to Lumia as the company never compromises on the design of its handsets. This device also looks like the mini version of the Lumia 520. The edges of the device are smoothly curved while the build material is good quality plastic. The clear and clean lines are clearly visible on the 3.5mm headset jack along with the microUSB port as both are located close to each other at the top of this device. These design similarities go back to Lumia line. Since this is not a smartphone so there are keys having no gaps between them towards the front of the device. The Nokia is commendable with its effort of using MicroSIM and 3.5G data transfer rate in a mobile phone rather than a smartphone and this has been evident in this handset. The keypad of this device is awesome. The keys of this keypad are very tactile while in use.
OS and Tech
The OS used in this device is the basic OS which has been used by most of the Nokia mobile phones. This OS is quite swift in its performance and it works fine for the tasks the device is made to perform. There is quite ample speed of multitasking but this cannot be compared with the speed of the Android OS.
Camera and Multimedia
The 1.3MP camera is the only camera provided in this mobile phone. This camera does its job at low resolution but the quality of the images is not very good. The photos generated by it are barely passable but they are decent enough for the price at which the device is being sold. Nothing much can be expected from this camera. It lacks LED light so the low light performance of the camera gets worse. There is no front camera in this device so this phone cannot be used for selfies and video calls.
Battery and Memory
Since the functionality of the device is very limited and there is very few preloaded apps in it so the battery provided to it works for many hours. According to the claims of the company, the battery provided to this device works for 490hrs of standby time and 12hrs of talk time and this is true as well. This device works for more than 48hrs very easily with moderate to heavy use and the battery is superb here. The RAM is quite limited but since this is not a smartphone so this works fine. The internal storage is also limited but it can be expanded to 32GB which is rather a surprise in this device.
