With smartphones becoming more and more accessible nowadays, feature phones are starting to get much less attention. Nonetheless, there is still a pretty lucrative market for these buttoned buzzers, mostly in the underserved extreme-budget price range. Companies like Jio, Tambo, etc. have been leading feature phone sales, but nothing is as iconic in the feature phone scene as Nokia. In this article, we talk about the latest update available about the new Nokia 125 and Nokia 150, and the latest Nokia price in Nepal.
Nokia 125- Simple, but great:
Look and Design:
The Nokia 125 is the cheaper of the two and comes with a large 2.4″ TFT screen. The ‘all-new’ more extended design makes this phone appear much leaner, and the bigger buttons allow easy texting and dialing. This does seem to make it a bit unnecessarily long, though.
The Nokia 125 doesn’t have a camera on the front or back.
The built-in antennae allow users to enjoy FM radio wirelessly – with or without a headset. Users can surf through all available radio channels picked up by the in-built FM antennae or external antennae on a connected headset.
Battery life is what feature phones shine in, and the Nokia 125 doesn’t disappoint. A Removable Li-Ion 1020 mAh battery powers this phone. While it doesn’t sound like much by modern smartphone standards, this can easily power a full day of heavy use.
The battery offers up to 560 hours of stand-by time and up to 19 hours of uninterrupted talk-time.
Nokia 150 – Reliable and Refined:
Design and display:
The Nokia 150 has a 2.4″ TFT screen, similar to the Nokia 125. With 240 x 320 pixels resolution and a 4:3 ratio, it is pretty much the best display you’ll find in a reasonably priced feature phone.
Similar to the Nokia 125, it also has a longer design, with bigger keys that are easier to press.
On the rear, we have a single VGA camera, and a flash LED. The camera lens is neatly packed in a circular notch in the center, just above the LED.
Cameras and card slot:
As opposed to the Nokia 125, the Nokia 150 does have cameras. The single VGA camera clicks decent pictures, which aren’t anywhere near smartphone standards but are pretty usable nonetheless.
The memory of this phone is expandable up to 32 GB, so you won’t have to worry about space running out when you click pictures. This is a feature missing in the Nokia 120 and neatly accompanies the camera.
The phone comes with a built-in antennae for FM pickup. An external headset can be connected, but it is optional.
Similar to the previous feature phone, the Nokia 150 comes with a Removable Li-Ion 1020 mAh battery, which provides up to 560 hours or standby time and up to 19 hours of uninterrupted talk-time.
Nokia, the word for durability:
Ah, yes… the very thing that Nokia is famous for. All Nokia feature phones are built with durable plastic bodies and screens, which provide a high degree of protection against… well, everything (unless you decide to boil the phone on high heat for whatever reason).
The Nokia 125 comes with the standard durable build, but the Nokia 150 takes it a step further. Built with high-quality, long-lasting polycarbonate material, the exterior is highly durable, and also has a matte-like finish to it.
Both the phones come with the classic Snake game, as well as a few other great try-and-buy games.
Pricing and Availability:
The current pricing of the two phones are as follows:
|Nokia Phone Model||Nokia price in Nepal|
|Nokia 120||Rs. 3,099/-|
|Nokia 150||Rs. 3,650/-|
Both the phones come in attractive colors and are available in all Nokia resellers throughout the country. The phone comes with a 365-day replacement guarantee.
