Value for Money

The official price of Nokia Lumia 505 in India is currently unknown.


Although the price of Nokia Lumia 505 is as-yet unknown, it is expected to be quite low, especially considering the absence of features such as a secondary camera, memory card slot and Java support. If its price turns out to be in the sub-10K range, then it definitely is a good buy. If it turns out to be higher than 12K, there will be serious concerns about its low 4GB memory that owners cannot extend due to lack of a memory card slot.
