Nokia Asha 201 review


No 3G or Wi-Fi - can the Asha survive in today's world?

Good keyboard ; Very long battery life ; Nice Twitter and Facebook integration ; MicroSD card slot ; Solid build

No 3G ; No Wi-Fi ; Poor camera ; Slow processor ; Small, low resolution screen

Nokia might be pushing at the high end of the smartphone world with its Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, but the company also has a budget series, Asha. The Nokia Asha 201 is designed for the chatterbox.

Is the Nokia Asha 201 a budget BlackBerry or a Qwerty keyboard failure?

Decent keyboard layout, Good chat functionality

Slow connectivity, Laggy apps, Keyboard not crisp enough

Nokia Asha 201 Review: In Depth


The Nokia Asha 201 is the first phone from Nokia's Asha line of budget phones to land in the UK. This particular white model, which is exclusive to Vodafone, comes with a very friendly £45 price…

A Nokia Budget Offering : Nokia Asha 201 mobile phone


While touch screen smartphones take all the headlines, there is still a market for handsets with more basic feature sets.

If you are looking for a budget priced handset then Nokia would like you to consider its Asha 201 model. Rather than its new best, platform-providing, buddy, namely Microsoft with its Windows Mobile offering, Nokia has opted to go with its own Symbian...

We review the Nokia Asha 201, an S40 handset with a Qwerty keyboard which only costs £45

Lightweight, Attractive styling, Cheap

Operating system looks and feels a bit dated, No Wi-Fi or 3G connectivity

The Nokia Asha 201 is a cheap mobile that looks and feels better than some devices two or three times its price, but Series 40 is a bit long in the tooth. Unless you want a throwaway phone or care little for new technology, a budget Android device or...

Nokia has retired its unloved Symbian operating system forits mid- to high-end phones, setting its hopes on WindowsPhone for the future. But it's still using it for low-enderslike the Asha 201, a budget smart phone with a QWERTY keyboard, andat this...

Decent keyboard, budget price

Old Symbian OS, 2-megapixel camera, no 3G or Wi-Fi

The Nokia Asha 201 is very much a budget phone but still puts up agood show for itself thanks to its decent quality keyboard, sturdybuild and social networking functions. For keeping in touch on thego -- and at a very good price -- it does a decent...

Nokia Asha 201 Qwerty phone


Review When Nokia announced its three new Asha budget phones in October they didn't attract much attention alongside the WinPho 7 handsets that were punted by the company at the same time.

If your main requirements are making voice calls and keeping on top of your e-mails and texts then the Asha 201 is an easy recommendation. The screen is sharp and bright, the keyboard nearly faultless and the new-look S40 interface a joy to behold. If...

Nokia Asha 201


The Nokia Asha 201 was announced at Nokia World 2011, as a basic Symbian S40 blower set to get emerging countries connected to the web. Much to our surprise, the Finns have decided to bring the handset to UK shores.

The Nokia Asha 201 may boast excellent social networking features and up to 32GB of onboard storage, but you mustn't forget that ultimately this is a basic handset. Although not ideal for budding-photographers and internet addicts, the phone is...
