The overall performance of the Asha 305 is good (for the price at least). The earpiece is loud enough to converse comfortably in noisy public transport and crowded places. The bundled wired stereo handsfree makes things easier. They are acceptably loud...

Nokia Asha 305 Review

 

The Nokia Asha 305 is a touch-screen dual-SIM phone selling for a very affordable price, but as affordable as it is, the question lingers whether there is still space for feature phones as Android has pushed the envelope in budget devices and is now...

Cheap ; Series 40 UI refreshed, looks much better

Resistive touchscreen cripples the experience ; Device feels underpowered, lags ; No Wi-Fi connectivity

With all above said, you probably already got a sense of what type of a device the Nokia Asha 305 is. Cheap. With all the implications of the word. From the cheap plastic up front to the somewhat sluggish performance that mars the good interface ideas...

Review: Nokia Asha 305

 

The handset's 3" resistive touch screen has pixel dimensions of 240x400. The display is good enough for indoor use, but there's no setting to raise or lower the brightness. This is made worse by the lack of an ambient light sensor. To top it off, the...

Great sound quality; Hot-swappable SIM slot; Sturdy build

Resistive touchscreen; Fixed display brightness; Mediocre video player; Lacks proper multitasking

Review: Nokia Asha 305, Full Touchscreen Screen Dual SIM Phone

 

Although the feature phone market is shrinking globally, it still generates considerable chunk of revenues and market share for Nokia – especially in developing markets like India. Also, with the low cost Android smartphones on the boundaries of the...

The Asha 305 is Nokia’s first full touch screen feature phone. And although the device boasts of a brilliant S40 UI the experience is marred with because of not so responsive resistive touch screen and the visible lag due to lack of power under the hood.
