The Nokia Asha is available for a street price of Rs.7,000; although you can find it for a bit cheaper, if you look online. This is just a ridiculously high price for this phone, all the more, when you can get some very good Android handsets at this...

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, Price in India, Technical Specification

 

Nokia Asha 300 comes with pre-loaded applications that you would hardly found in any other multimedia phones. This new handset is the perfect example of technology meets style.

• Predictive text input ; • SNS integration ; • Organiser ; • Voice memo ; • Stereo FM radio with RDS ; • HTML, Adobe Flash Lite browser

• No Wi-Fi ; • No multitasking ; • Fixed-focus camera with no flash ; • No front-facing camera ; • No smart dialling ; • No video-call camera ; • Non-hot-swappable memory card ; • Resistive touchscreen

Except for a few consolation features like the camera, the Nokia Asha 300 Tech Specs is relatively poor. However, considering the Nokia Asha 300 price in India, it certainly offers more value for money. What say?
