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...

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...

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

Sadly, and slightly annoying, in a design faux pas, the microSD card slot sits under the battery so you have to remove the battery to swap cards. On the plus side, Nokia includes a 2GB card as part of the package, giving you a decent amount of space to...

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...

Meet the Nokia Asha 311, Nokia's attempt to end the war between smartphones and “dumbphones”. This 3-inch touchscreen phone packs a 1GHz processor, 3G and Wi-Fi for location skills, but it's running Nokia's power sipping S40 operating system, which you...

Given the age and low power requirements of S40, it’s incredible what Nokia’s pulled off here: it can do just about anything a smartphone can in a pinch. But here’s the thing. The UK mobile market is so heavily subsidized by the networks, there’s just...

Nokia Asha 311 budget smartphone review

 

Nokia's smartphone sales may be in the toilet at the moment but it still flogs a fair number of handsets under the Asha brand of feature phones. Newest to the ranks is the Asha 311 which looks and behaves a bit like a smartphone but has a far lower...

As a tonic to these all-singing, all-dancing smartphones – that cost too much and consume power like there is no tomorrow – the Asha 311 has much to appreciate. It’s cheap, well made, does many of the basic things a fully fledged smartie will do, is...

We get to grips with the top-tier model in Nokia's budget S40 range, the Asha 311

Looks good, Fast performance, Free EA games

Small size, Poor camera, Annoying interface, Small and fuzzy screen, Low memory, Proprietary charger

Too basic in functionality, too complicated in execution and too expensive for what it is
