Nokia Asha 311

 

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

 

Nokia is still a major player in mobiles thanks primarily to the sheer volume of feature phones in peoples hands around the world. These feature phone run an interface called S40, an interface designed…

Small body ; Charming touch UI ; Great codec support

Design feels cheap ; Low resolution screen ; Expensive

Nokia Asha 311

 

Nokia's latest Asha feature phone arrives to challenge Android's entry-level contenders and (hopefully) become the budget mobile phone user's device of choice.

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 Asha 311 review -

 

Good battery life; easily set-up email and networking; free EA games bundle

Restrictive app store, low-resolution display, overpriced

Nokia Asha 311

 

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...

Nokia Asha 311 review

 

We take a look at Nokia's Asha 311 to see if a touch-based S40 can run with the budget pack.

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

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...
