Nokia 515 review: Time machine

20 November 2013
They certainly don’t make them like that anymore. Been a while though and we’re not sure if this is a compliment. It’s been long enough since speed dial was invented. And T9 predictive text. Or color displays. So, what’s the Nokia 515 doing here...

      The dual sim version of this phone might just hit an open goal gap in the market IF only it can be used as a Wifi Hot spot? - but finding out whether it can seems impossible as no one on the UK high street stocks it. Can anyone answer this? I'll buy this like a shot if I can tether it to a WiFi tablet. What I require is a small pocket sized phone I can operate single handed and with my eyes shut and a separate large tablet for looking at e mails and other software. I don't want a clumsy 'smartphone' crammed into my pocket - which in terms of size is a compromise for virtually every work related task. I spend a lot of time getting in an out of cars at work. If I get this Nokia 515 dual I'll have a nice big 10 inch wifi tablet in a car glove compartment safe from getting scratched and keep the Nokia 515 in my pocket, with various bits of sharp metal things like house keys and coins. I've never yet whilst walking around outside felt the need for access to U tube, face book, twitter etc and the other 1000 and one non work related apps.. So I really hope Nokia have finally realised what a lot of us actually need in the workplace Otherwise I'm off to buy my 2nd choice - an i phone 5s.

                I like this phone but its a little bit expensive than others in this segment. And it have 3G network but it doesn't have a secondary camera that can be use to make video calls. But its a dependable and good looking one. And some of the main advantage that the others don't have in this type of phones is the cornering gorilla glass 2 and the face detection, panorama modes in the camera. Those who like to be simple are gonna like this phone.

                      Anonymous, 30 Nov 2013I've been looking for a nice dual sim phone for my dad. So ... moreYes, and not just seniors, either.
                      I find the S40 featurephones far easier to use than any smartphone.

                        I've been looking for a nice dual sim phone for my dad. So glad nokia finally made one that isn't for teens. Not everyone wants a smartphone. This classic type phone is easier to use for seniors.

                                I still don’t understand the word "Smartphone". A phone is smart if it has AI in its core; which none of the phones seem to have. Essentially any phone is a dumb phone. From this point of view Nokia 515 is equally as dumb as any other phone. The only reason I bought this phone is it looks nice. Definitely looks better then any Samsung phone. And definitely better looking than any blackberry phones. Nokia you should have made this phone 10 years ago.

                                    why wifi.. why speed dial..
                                    next 515. ok.
                                    this is simply phone, call and text with metal body. so dont ask wifi or facebook.. ok, next to find LG or ip v.v..

                                        Nokia, tks for still giving us non-qwerty phones such as the 206, 208 and now 515. Many consumers in the main simply want to call and text using a comfortable and practically sized phone with additional features a bonus depending on individual needs but until the excellent 206 were forced to use smartphones. An ideal combo would be the inclusion of touchscreen ability. Also what about a "Slider" phone again aka the Communicator?
