Nokia 515 Features & Specifications
Well, decease talking about the design first, price this is something at which Nokia is best at. Here comes the brand new Nokia 515 which is built from a single anodized and sandblasted aluminium piece. In terms of the design quality it can be termed as a premium smartphone. Nokia 515 display comes with a 6.1cm of size and with a resolution of 240x320pixels with Gorilla Glass 2 protection and polarized to use in sunlight. The screen sports a pixel density of 166ppi.
This sexy looking gadget measures 114x48x11mm dimension wise and weighs 101.1grams (single-SIM) and 102.7 grams (dual-SIM).
Talking about Nokia 515 camera, it has got a 5MP rear snapper with LED flash. It comes with several preloaded camera options like voice guided mode for clicking self shots with rear camera, panorama and sequential shots. It can click pictures of 2592 x 1944 pixels.
Nokia 515 connectivity features are Bluetooth, EDGE/GPRS, microUSB and 3G. You don’t have the Wi-Fi option which may be a sad part. This phone supports only microSIM. It also supports 3.5G connectivity and features HD voice quality over supported networks.
Talking about Nokia 515 memory, it has got 256MB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD card. It comes with a 64MB of RAM. Some of the pre-installed apps on this Nokia phone are Facebook, Twitter, Mail for Exchange (check emails, sync calendars and contacts in real time on the go) and also Nimbuzz.
The major thing which may be considered as a drawback of this phone is its OS. Nokia 515 is not running on Asha which I think would have been a better option. It is based on S40 software. Now this is somehow a kind of deal breaker.
