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...

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...

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.

The Nokia Asha 311 is a phone that I, personally, have been very interested in. More from a mobile enthusiast point of view than anything else, really. It's...

Cheap-ish

Meh Camera with no flash

Chances are, if you buy this phone knowing it’s limitations, you’re going to be plenty happy with it.

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: In Depth

 

The Nokia Asha 311 combines Nokia OS with Gorilla Glass, a capacitive display and powerful 1GHz processor.

Small body ; Charming touch UI ; Great codec support

Design feels cheap ; Low resolution screen ; Expensive

Battery life is something of a let down. With the phone being an S40 successor, we expected days out of it, maybe even a week. The 3G, Wi-Fi and touch screen seem to do a fair bit of damage though, the 1100mAh battery fares more like a smartphone than...

Great battery life; 40 free EA Games voucher; snappy performance; FM Radio; 2 GB memory card included in retail package

Resistive-like touchscreen experience on a capacitive display; and paltry internal storage

Nokia’s Asha 311 sports some well thought out, swipe-loving, Series 40 OS enhancements plus decent specs for its recommended retail price of R1 500. In this price bracket it competes against the cheaper (R1 000) Android-running Samsung Galaxy Pocket...
