Don’t get us wrong, though, as Nokia 105 and 105 Dual SIM did not come from the old, stocked boxes from the warehouse and which would go on sale. These are newly released devices for the entry level category.
It may raise eyebrows from some people; after all, everything’s going advanced nowadays. But come to think about an instance when you need to travel for—shall we say—a couple of days. Most smartphones do not have a mammoth of a battery, right? This is where a basic phone such as Nokia 105 or 105 Dual SIM takes charge. Not to mention when you just want kids to have a means of communication with you when they’re away.

If you’re interested in killing time, play with the pre-installed Snake Xenzia and Bubble Bash 2. Or you can listen to radio music through its very refreshing FM radio (ah, reminiscing the good, old and simple days).
