The Nokia 105 Dual SIM terminal is a low cost terminal and relatively simple to use. Due to its size and simplicity in some of its functions it can be considered a terminal indicated for elderly people. The terminal as well as incorporating the possibility of using it with dual SIM, includes basic features such as alarm, flashlight or FM radio for a very competitive price.

Buttons and physical appearance

The phone is robust and has a shape and size that aims to fit the palm of your hand, in general it is a lightweight and easy to carry phone.

In this design, a side button for volume control is missing.

The buttons, although with relief and some separation, do not get to be as big and differentiable as in other models adapted for adults and the central button with cross movement and confirmation does not convince us because many times still exerting pressure on their Central zone is not able to confirm its pulsation.

Menu and text

In the different menu screens that are shown, the fonts are relatively small and the contrasts are not very strong in some sections

Volume and sound quality

The volume is not too high nor can the audio quality be comparable to that of higher-end terminals or some designed specifically for seniors.

The phone does not have a speaker for use as a hands-free call.

SMS

The way of writing and sending messages is simple and precisely this screen if it presents a high contrast greater than that of the menus in general.

Manual

The terminal does not include a manual in Spanish, only French, German and Italian, its inclusion would be highly recommended. In any case, if there is a complete online guide in Spanish:

FM radio

The FM radio does not come with built-in headphones and needs additional ones with Jack connector. The radio has a fairly acceptable audio quality and tunes well to the environment stations.

Charge

The phone does not have a charging station. Although it incorporates a micro USB charger that is relatively simple to connect, we consider it very useful to include a charging base in this type of terminal.

Lantern

The phone has an LED flashlight on top that is activated by one of the icons in the main menu.

Battery

The battery of 800mAh that is included next to the terminal has a very great autonomy being able to last up to 15 hours in conversation and up to a whopping 21 days at rest without the need to charge.

Alarm, calendar and calculator

The alarm is configured in a simple way and allows to include up to 5 different inputs with configurable tones.

The calendar, called "agenda" in the menu, allows to add reminders in a simple way.

The calculator is operated with the cross-shaped button and allows simple operations.

Games

The phone incorporates games such as the classic snake Nokia. But you have to be careful because some of them are not free and include an option to buy through SMS. We believe that payment options should be restricted in the terminals destined for the elderly. In addition, we consider that within the menu all the games should be contained in the same folder called "games" to facilitate their identification.

Dual SIM

The phone incorporates the possibility of inserting 2 SIM cards to have the possibility of using different operators.

Accesibility

Accessibility for people with vision difficulties has to be checked when presenting menus with small text and low contrast.

There is no HAC compatibility for hearing aids.

Conclusion

The Nokia 105 Dual SIM is a terminal that can offer certain functions such as calls and messages with some extras for a very reasonable price. If what you are looking for is a cheap, lightweight cell phone, to keep you connected this is a very suitable option.
