    How fluid is the UI ?

    I like this phone for the value it offers.

    JD - Got it yesterday. Okay okay. Maps are not that great, so dont rely on this phone if you planning to use navigation. Rest all, for the money, its a VFM phone. The camera is quite impressive despite being a 2MP only.

    Well though the touchpad on this is pretty okay, it's a tad small compared to other phones (N8 for example) and far inferior to the keyboards offered on Windows phone or Android.


    What error are you getting? Is it an OTA (Over The Air) update? or do you need a PC to do it?

    Screen is small, I don't like the touch pad simply because it is a PITA. It is OTAF update and somehow I am unable to update it from voda. Error message: "Unable to download, something went wrong"

    Try downloading over a Wi-Fi network.

    And try a bigger touchscreen phone. I know it's not the same as what we are/were used to, but still makes for a better experience than what you have currently.

    Yup, that's what I thought. I'll try at work. I'll will buy a simple dual sim Nokia phone with keys and whatsapp. I know big screen touchscreens are way better but I don't want to take that road just like I didn't go the AVR way for my HTPC :p

    and now the phone doesn't detect an update at all.

    lol, try connecting it to PC, use Nokia Suite and see if it detects.

    For a keyboard only option, with WhatsApp and Dual SIM, check out the Nokia 210 I reviewed here -

    I would recommend the 210, since I've used one. Mom has the 206. But no WhatsApp support from what I understand (in 206).

    Thanks for the tip. 210 is one helluva phone for what it costs. Had no clue that whatsapp is free forever on this one. Enjoying it.
