Mobile Phone Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The fantastic 4 inch high-sensitive (480p) display. It comes with 8GB of storage or there’s a micro SD – up to 64GB – slot behind the removable back cover. You can change the covers if you fancy a different coloured phone or if you have a 3D printer you can print out designs from Nokia. There’s no front facing camera but there’s a 5MP one on the back with a Carl Zeiss lens. A dual-core 1GHz processor is more than enough oomph to keep the Windows 8 operating system working smoothly. The excellent Nokia Drive app is on board so you’ll always find your way home even if you aren’t connected to the internet.
