Nokia 106 Red - Expert Reviews

Introduction

With the Nokia deal finally coming through, Microsoft has formally taken over the reins of the firm that they have been working so closely with for the manufacture of Windows based handsets. This probably does more good than bad for Nokia as the Finnish firm goes into the hands of a company that was already working with them for the desired outcome. Therefore, even though the ownership of the firm has changed, the goal has remained the same and one can definitely conclude that whatever chances the firm had for producing an Android device are now out of the window. But the device we have on our hands has nothing to do with Windows or Android platform, in fact, it cannot be even classified as a smartphone. Nokia has not only been working with Windows as a smartphone player but producing low-end budget devices as well.

Nokia has been very good indeed especially in a market like India with its huge rural market. Its budget device named Nokia 106 sports a 1.8-inch TFT display with a puny resolution of 128 by 160 pixels. Clearly, for a device like this, resolution is not a priority, a statement further strengthened by its trivial pixel density of 114ppi. The dimensions of this budget device include a length of 112.9mm, breadth of 47.5mm and thickness of 14.9mm. The device is very light indeed with just 74.2 grams. The gadget obviously lacks a lot of high profile specs but does come with some basic utility features. One of them is the presence of flashlight at the top end of the device but the back end of the gadget lacks the presence of camera. Therefore, the user cannot get involved into photography of any sorts and also there is no presence of music or video player.

Thus, the sources of entertainment are pretty limited. There is however, the presence of a FM radio through which, the user can access popular radio stations available in the vicinity. Since there is not much to access as far as features and facilities are concerned, a voluminous memory is not required. Hence, the internal memory of the device is very small and so is the RAM with just 384KB. The user can keep up to 500 contact information in the device based solely on the internal memory of the device. There is no internet access in the device with the absence of features like GPRS, EDGE, WAP browser or Wi-Fi. The only connectivity feature that the device offers is the USB port, which can only be used for charging the gadget and not for data exchange.

There are a few games in the device that can be engaging for a while but nothing too entertaining. What really makes Nokia 106 standout though is the possession of 800mAh standard lithium-ion battery that derives a long talk time of up to 10 hours and an even more lingering standby time of up to 840 hours. The device is available in three colors of Black, White and Red and offers some preloaded applications as well including digital clock, calculator, calendar, converter and expense manager.

Operating system and UI

Nokia 106 comes with a petite 1.8-inch TFT screen with a likewise resolution of 128 by 160 pixels and a weak pixel density of 114ppi. There is an alphanumeric keypad for the user to communicate with the device but other than that, there is nothing special to talk about in this department.

Other Features

All that Nokia 106 has in its multimedia department is a FM radio for listening to all the desired radio stations. There is no music player or video player to rely on for songs and watching videos.

Camera

Nokia 106 does not provide any camera facilities.

Connectivity

Nokia 106 has no internet connectivity as the device does not have GPRS, EDGE or Wi-Fi or even a preloaded WAP browser.

Memory

Nokia 106 is very low on internal memory and there is no microSD card slot for memory expansion. The RAM of the device is insignificant but with the device being of low caliber, it would not affect the speed of the gadget as much.

Other Features

Games like Snakes and Carom are preloaded in the device but no more could be downloaded in the device as Nokia 106 lacks any internet connectivity.

Battery

Nokia 106's battery strength does not look that strong on paper with 800mAh standard lithium-ion but the output it churns out is just simply outstanding with a talk time of up to 10 hours and a standby time of up to 840 hours.

Connectivity

Nokia 106 comes with only one data connectivity feature of USB port, which cannot be used for data exchange purpose but only for charging the gadget. There is no Bluetooth or GPRS available in the device.

Other Features

Nokia 106 when compared to Micromax X102 has a similar screen size of 1.8 inches and an identical resolution of 128 by 160 pixels. Nokia 106 does not have any camera facility while Micromax X102 comes with a VGA camera. There is no microSD card slot in Nokia 106 but Micromax X102 gets an 8GB expansion slot. Nokia 106 is a single device while Micromax X102 supports dual SIM facility. Nokia 106 is powered by 800mAh standard lithium-ion battery whereas Micromax X102 comes with 900mAh standard lithium-ion battery. The talk time and standby time offered by Nokia 106 are way ahead of Micromax X102.

Other Features

21 August, 2013: In the midst of powerful Android and Windows smartphones, it is difficult for a low-end budget device with a puny 1.8-inch display to make headlines. But nevertheless, Nokia 106 released today, does not lose its utility and has different targeted segment of audience. Even the basic features like camera and music player are missing from the gadget but is built more around providing a sturdy gadget that can last for a longer duration in terms of talk time and standby time. Nokia 106 is expected to be priced around Rs.1,200. The highlights are as follows:

*        1.8 inches TFT display

*        800mAh standard lithium-ion battery

*        FM Radio

*        USB charging

Nokia 106 white
by Punit Kharb on 2014-02-20

Phone is good
Battery Backup is good

Problem:
you can hear callers voice from back speaker more than from speaker. This is common problem in all Nokia's entry level phones these days.
