Nokia Asha 306 review: Smartphone Ash-pirations


In a shrinking featurephone market, the Nokia Asha lineup is trying to deliver a near-smartphone experience with less complexity and, more crucially, at a more attractive price point. The Asha 306 slots just above the middle of the pack - delivering a...

Quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE ; Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g ; S40-based Asha touch interface ; 3" WQVGA resistive touchscreen, ~155 pixel density ; Multi-touch in the gallery and Nokia Maps ; Display auto-rotation ; Nokia Browser 2.0 ; Nokia store and 40 EA games for...

Interface slows down at times, due to low RAM ; Poor screen quality ; Resistive touchscreen feels awkward ; Fixed-focus camera ; QCIF video recording ; No smart dialing

When you think of web browsing on a phone, you are probably imagining 4+" screens, LTE speeds and blazing benchmarks, but it's actually a phone like the Nokia Asha 306 that can really bring Internet connectivity to the masses - Nokia's "next billion"...

Nokia Asha 306


Nokia's Asha 306 is certainly cheap, but it's not hugely cheerful.

Low price tag, Comes with 40 free EA games, Relatively cheap

No 3G support, Lacks GPS, Poor web browser, Resistive screen is a tad unresponsive

Nokia Asha 306 review: Nokia Asha 306


40 EA games can be freely downloaded.

No 3G; Series 40 operating system is laggy, cryptic and error prone; Small low-res screen; Terrible camera; Less extensive app choice than Android.

With the old Series 40 software on board, the Nokia Asha 306 is already a smart phone with usability strings attached. But it's biggest shortcoming is no 3G, which throttles speeds when you're not able to use Wi-Fi. It's also nowhere near cheap enough...

Nokia Asha 306 Review: In Depth


The Nokia Asha 306 delivers a 3-inch touch screen and Nokia OS in a quirky plastic body.

Quirky design ; Nokia OS is innovative ; Expandable Storage

Resistive touch screen ; OS stutters ; No 3G

The real problem with the Asha 306 is that it tries to beat Android at its own game - affordable touch screen. This was always going to be a big ask, but at a higher price point and packing inferior hardware, namely the resistive screen, it's not even...

Nokia Asha 306


The Nokia Asha 306 is a good little phone if you're after a touch screen phone on a budget. Image results from the phones built-in camera isn't too bad just don't expect to produce great images from it. Web browsing is a little slow but not as slow as...

Touchscreen on a low budget

Text messaging on this phone is a nightmare.
