Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Other than efficient and advanced call management, I'd additionally 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 struggle 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 is credited with present in the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth file sharing is really not of much stick with to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all sublime memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim other excellent features and fairly makes up. I will need to delete or transfer photos everyday if I choose this Nokia 208DS Dual Sim with its small storage space. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim with extendable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing possesses.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 2.4 inch display is quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. An internal RAM this low isn't capable of handling any level of multitasking or gaming. Smartphone storage with such low capacity even for basic apps and programs is really irrelevant. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 2.4 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim is very cramped. The Yes, 1.3 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily go for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I don't worry charging when I are able to charge my phone with the laptop; I are able to even transfer files with this. Here the Nokia 208DS Dual Sim is quite stingy with the tiny 0.256 GB. I don't know what it is good for when it have the flexibility to hardly hold any of my media files.
