Smartphone Features on a Budget Phone: Nokia 301 Camera Demo (Video)

We’ve already shown you the new Lumias Nokia unveiled at the MWC, the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720, but the company also had a couple other handsets to debut. It may not be our usual cup of tea, but we decided to take a look at one of these cheaper options, the Nokia 301.

We were especially impressed with some of the camera features that you’d normally see on a full-fledged smartphone, like the ability to stitch together a panorama. There’s also a voice-assisted self-portrait mode, letting you snap a quick pic of yourself even though the hardware lacks a front-facer. This won’t replace any Lumia for us, but it’s still neat to see so much being done with so little.
