Nokia Asha 300 Review

 

Nokia launched their Asha range of feature phones, back in December 2011 and today we have with us, the Asha 300, the candy-bar feature phone, which was touted as one of the first phones to have Angry Birds pre-installed. Let's find out if this Series...

The Asha 300 is put together very well and we applaud Nokia for their craftsmanship. 3G support is also a bonus, but besides that there really isn’t anything going for this phone that would make you shell out seven large ones. Like we said, if it drops...

Nokia Asha 300 review: King of ordinary

 

The Nokia Asha 300 may not exactly fit in with today's standards of newsworthy. With smartphones flexing their muscles at venues like CES, sporting ever-expanding app markets, HD screens and multi-core processors, it's hard to see how an entry-level...

Nokia Asha 300 hands-on

 

The Nokia Asha 300 is shaping up to be a solid bet if you want a simple, small and cheap phone. The 5-megapixel camera and fast processor are plus points, but a resistive touchscreen could make this mobile fiddly to use.

Fast processor ; 5-megapixel camera ; Small and light

Resistive touchscreen could prove fiddly ; Android is better for apps and games

Nokia continues to disappoint

 

I've been using this phone sporadically for the past 6 months. It was given to me by a friend and my initial intention was to replace my aging Samsung E250 with it, but I was not happy with it so I've been using it as a back up only when traveling or...

touch screen and dial pad, camera, media player

Symbian OS, durability, call quality

Tough to say who it is for. The die-hard Nokia fan, if there are any left.

Wow Nokia Red is Now!

 

Apart from it being fantastic in dazzling Red, I just love the ease of use of this phone. I already have put some fantastic photos on it and the quality is excellent. It's not a smart phone but who cares as it's brilliant! Why didn't I order stuff from...

good step up from a basic phone

 

I bought this phone as a step up from a basic Nokia phone and I am very pleased with my purchase. It would not suit smart phone fans but it is a good progression from a basic phone as it is a combination of touch screen and keypad controls. As with all...

Nokia Asha 300, loads of features in small package

Compact, touch screen+keyp ad, good battery life

camera, difficult user int erface

I bought Nokia Asha 300 4 months back. I found this phone both useful and annoying. Useful when I look at its features in small handy package. Annoying when I start using it. Hardware features are awesome. Fast (good processor and enough memory), good...
