Nokia 130 review
|Review: February 2015|
In a nutshell: The Nokia 130 is cheap and basic, but with very long battery life.
Today's best buy: Nokia 130 Dual SIM (2017) from Tesco Direct (£36.49)
The Nokia 130 is a very cheap phone with an old-style alphanumeric keypad. It's an upgraded version of the Nokia 106, and is smaller, lighter, and with a larger battery.
Like the 106, this phone has no camera, although it does include a radio, and can play music and videos. It features Bluetooth and USB connectivity, as well as a 3.5mm headphone connection. There's almost no onboard memory, but a microSD card slot lets you add up to 32GB for storing music.
Battery life is a key strength of the phone, with up to 13 hours of talktime, or 46 hours if used as a music player!
Nokia 130 features include:
- Display: LCD, 65,000 colours, 160 x 128 pixels (1.8 inches)
- FM radio, music & video players
- Messaging: SMS
- Vibration alert
- Memory: 4MB, microSD card slot
- Connectivity: USB 2.0, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5 mm audio jack
- Size: 106 x 46 x 14 mm
- Weight: 69g
- Dual-band GSM 900 MHz, 1800 MHz
- Battery: 1020 mAh
- Talktime: up to 13 hours
- Battery standby: 36 days

Nokia 130 is a good basic mobile phone but although it is advertised as having blue tooth connectivity, would not connect to the blue tooth in my car. I took the phone back and was issued with a replacement but again connectivity failed. I was given a refund and I went back to my tried and trusted Nokia 110 which is by far a more superior product, which cnnocts with no problem at all. The only reason for replacing it was cracked screen, but I solved that problem by purchasing a complete brand new case for £2.75 and only took 10 mins to fit.

Bought for 19 pounds as I broke my smartphone. Pleased to find out it can play music for 46 hours before running out of battery, at least 5 times longer than my last phone! And if this one breaks it's only 20 pounds for a new one rather than hundreds.

Bought it for ten pounds at the local EE and at the price it"s a great little phone.

I bought this in protest after I stupidly put my iPhone in a waterproof coat when it was raining and the deluge of humid air destroyed it. I'm done with smartphones.

I use my phone to make and receive calls, this does that, smart phones I really don't think so. Try looking at You Tube and the talks of Dr Devra Davis. BTW if I drop or smash it, pretty hard to do, and I need to replace it, that's about £20 or less, and you can use it anywhere as no self respecting thief wants to nick them. It's all I want. Iv'e had i phones, keep them.This is perfect for me.
