Nokia Asha 311 review: A penny saved

 

Nokia is still picking up pace in the smartphone market, with the Microsoft-driven Lumias yet to make the impact the Finns have been hoping for since the strategy reset. In the meantime, the company has been enjoying a pretty easy run in the...

Quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE ; Penta-band 3G with 14.4Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps support ; S40-based Asha touch interface ; 3" WQVGA capacitive touchscreen, ~155 pixel density ; Corning Gorilla Glass, Polarizing filter ; 1GHz CPU, 128MB RAM ; Nokia Browser...

Low screen resolution ; Fixed-focus camera ; No smart dialing ; Costs as much as some smartphones

The featurephone game is quite the non sequitur. It is simultaneously a vestige of a time before smartphones and a reflection of their influence - and sometimes not a very clear one at that. Yet undeniably there is market for such devices, and the...

Nokia Asha 311 Review

 

A surprising little gem from Nokia.

Affordable, plenty of free games, clean UI, variety of colors, decent battery life

No GPS, no LED flash

Nokia have designed the Asha 311 to be an affordable handset, and as such it won’t be packing a lot of hardware under the hood. The specs are enough to run the phone’s Series 40 OS, but you’ll see some apps lag slightly when using them.

Nokia Asha 311

 

Nokia's Asha 311 is a budget blower that comes packing a new touchscreen interface.

Full Touch user interface is the best yet on a Series 40 handset, Relatively low price tag

Small, compact design, Poor web browser, No GPS, Limited range of apps

Nokia Asha 311 Review

 

Nokia's Asha 311 is the flagship handset in its trio of ‘Full Touch' phones, which also include the Asha 305 and Asha 306. Having just reviewed the Asha 305, the 311 is quite similar to it except it also offers better features like a capacitive screen,...

The buttons on the Asha 311 are uncomfortably hard and it takes an effort to use them. We have the volume rocker and sleep/wake button on the side, along with the 3.5mm headphone jack, microUSB port and thin-pin charging port on the top. The speaker is...
