Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Other than adept and advanced call management, I'd further like my smartphone to be able to Pushmail (Mail for Exchange) and much more, just like the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it bids with respect to functionality. With all the advanced call management possesses present in the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really tiny and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Nokia 208DS Dual Sim is. Video recording is fun and allows me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. I won't worry about the other features in the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Nokia 208DS Dual Sim will not even last me a day. The extendable memory of the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones with high internal memory that also comes with highly confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Even the lowest graphics games need RAM higher than this. I dunno what good is storage which is insufficient even for regular apps and programs. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 2.4 inches display of the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I desire texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. Yes, 1.3 MP is not that great camera resolution. You are able to easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't this smartphone are able to click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I don't worry charging when I have the flexibility to charge my phone with the laptop; I have the flexibility to even transfer files with this. The 0.256 GB is really very less. If it can't save all my files then what good is it.
