Today, at our consumer blog we are reviewing one of the budget phones offered by Nokia. The 515 is offered in three color choices (white, black, gold) and its main selling points would be the nice clean design and very good battery life.
Of course with the 515 Nokia is not targeting any of the high-end devices offered at the phone market but rather those consumers looking for a stylish device offered at a reasonable price. On the other hand Nokia 515 doesn't have any cutting edge technology that may impress those technology geeks looking for the latest hardware and software features. Probably the biggest market for this phone would be Eastern Europe and Russia where phones with physical keyboards are still taking very big piece of the phone market.

For me probably the stuff that is particularly good in this phone are the Corning Gorilla Glass 2 that is used to protect the display, the strongly performing 1200 mAh battery and good call quality. And here you can check all main features and specifications of the Nokia 515:
