  2. OVI App store, not as great as Android’s or Iphone’s however still they have improved a-lot and I was amazed to see several free apps and games to download
  3. It has a fixed focus camera which means you cannot take macro shots and extremely sharp pictures
  4. Camera lacks flash which is not a big issue since cell phones flashes are not that powerful however with flash you can at least capture in very dark situations

Overall conclusion / review

  • Nokia 603 price in different countries: around $270USD, 1000QAR (Qatari Riyals), 1000SAR (Saudi Riyals), 24,000PKR (Pakistani Rs.)
  • If we compare the price and the features, the phone is excellent and a must have
  • Excellent phone with excellent features, user friendliness, great touch screen phone with good battery, speaker and camera
  • If you are confused whether to buy Nokia 701 or 603, both phones have same body, same screen, same processing speed with Wi-Fi. Only thing that Nokia 701 has extra is 8GB internal memory vs 2GB and 8Mp camera with flash 5MP camera without flash. I have ended up buying Nokia 603 with external card (very cheap) instead of spending extra on phone.
