Nokia Asha 303 Review

 

Do you remember the days when a mobile phone was primarily used to make calls and send texts? Nokia does. That's evident in the Asha series which was released last spring, seemingly everywhere except North America. At first glance it's easy to see what...

Nokia Asha 303

 

Nokia aims to remain a big player in the feature phone market with the latest range of S40-powered Asha devices, including the Asha 303. Does this touch-and-type QWERTY phone have what it takes to entice the youth market?

Speedy 1 GHz processor; affordable pricetag; touch-and-type device; grip-friendly design; and excellent battery life.

A feature phone in a world where a smartphone is king; not the most graphically enticing user interface; and very average camera.

Nokia Asha 303 review: Type smarter

 

Nokia had two big announcements to make a few months ago. And yes, it's a matter of perspective but, on certain markets, the S40-powered Asha series can be as big as Windows Phone. Anyway, now that the Lumia smartphones have had their deserved hype,...

Nokia Asha 303 Review

 

The Nokia Asha 303 is the flagship of Nokia's new affordable range, that is aimed towards youth and emerging markets. While not really impressive in terms of specs, Nokia's Series 40 phones have been around for a while with millions of loyal followers...

Very lightweight and comfortable to hold phone ; Strong and clear loudspeaker ; Good call quality ; Global pentaband radio

Cramped keyboard ; No GPS radio ; Fixed-focus camera

Correct this as this can be somewhat confusing for some users..

Nokia Asha 303 review: Fantasy feature phone

 

Nokia seems to be making full efforts for a comeback from the disaster that the last year was for the company. After the success of the Lumia range, Nokia is targeting the feature phone section of the mobile market that it once ruled. The Asha 303 is a...

Superb Internet connectivity, a 32 GB MicroSD slot and great apps hardly leave room for complaints although the camera left us kind of disappointed. But at a price of around Rs. 7200, we would totally recommend this handset. If you want a Nokia phone...

Possibly Nokia's worst human interface?

 

The Asha 303 looks really good on paper. Promising functions, half-decent camera, great sound quality - which is important on a phone ;-) For reasons known only to Nokia they chose a portrait screen on this, unlike their other half screen, half KB...

Tonnes of functions, nice size. really good voice quality.

Keyboard is a disaster, battery life questionable.
