The Nokia 113 is a basic mobile phone that costs around £20 on a pay-as-you-go deal. It has a basic camera and music player but it's not aimed at people that want the latest features - instead it's designed for anyone that just wants to make and send occasional calls and texts. To find out how well it manages these everyday tasks we put the Nokia 113 through our dedicated simple mobile phone lab test.
