These were some of the key features of the Budget Windows Smartphone by Nokia. However one can’t expect to do anything and everything with this smartphone. As it was solely designed as to keep its price as low as possible. However the experience hence is not really that good. It has several disadvantages , like ,

  1. Some apps won’t run , due to low RAM.
  2. No front facing camera, thus no video calls , either Skype.
  3. Audio quality is not that great.
  4. No expandable memory.

These were some major short comings of the phone. But again , it wasn’t designed to be a brace , however it will still provide good user experience and quality as compared to any Windows phone priced at that low amount. And it is also a good office package , for those who cannot afford smartphones like lumia 910, 820 etc. Still it is a good phone , and really a cheap yet good user interface available on the Windows Phone.
