Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic feature phone with Internet Have been using this phone for a month now. Battery last about 4 days with a few calls, text and internet sessions per day. Internet uses the Opera browser which can store 16 bookmarks. There are dedicated basic apps you can download for Facebook, FB Messenger (though not live) and Twitter and some games. You can also do Facebook and Twitter via the browser. Plenty of basic utilities such as calculator, alarms, Note and MP3 player. The only reason I don't give it 5* is that you can't access email like older Nokia feature phones could do. This runs S30+ OS and not S40. This phone would be great as a festival phone.
