The design is quite similar too. Nokia 105 (2023) is almost identical to 2021’s Nokia 105 4G but lacks LTE connectivity. It brings a 1.8-inch TFT LCD with 120 x 160 px resolution and a polycarbonate build with an IP52 water resistance. Nokia 106 4G has a 1.8-inch IPS LCD.

There are no cameras on either phone, though you do get an LED torch. Nokia 106 4G can play MP3 files though you’ll have to provide your own microSD card. The software side is covered by the Series 30+ operating system. Both devices support wireless FM radio which does not require plugging in a headset.

Even opening contacts will load few seconds, s30+ is heavy and dumb os. S40 and symbian s60v3 require less resource, operate faster and have more features.
