Nokia ASHA 305 Review

Nokia ASHA 305 was available and released on july 2012. This phone belongs to the low end smart-phone series which is loaded with dual sim and some decent features for its low price tag.

Let’s go through the features of this low end smartphone.

Display
It has a 3.0 inches TFT resistive touch-screen which gives a decent viewing experience. It cannot play HD videos but the basic videos with 176×144 resolution work smoothly. You can have up to 3 home screens which means, you are one touch away from accessing more apps right from the home screen. Its dropdown screen reminds us of androids dropdown status bar.

Camera:
ASHA 305 is equipped with 2MP primary camera which is its basic camera and it does not contain any front camera or flash. The 2MP camera comes with few features which can be used to put some effects to your clicks.

OS
Its S40 ASHA OS gives decent mobile experience. Browsing is pretty slow as it does not include 3G or Wifi features. You can use basic browser using 2G service.

Memory
It has a 10MB internal memory and expandable up to 32GB through microSD card slot. So you get more space to store your pictures, data and your favorite songs.

Body
Nokia is known for its tough hardware so you don’t have to worry much if you drop your ASHA once or twice. It is just 98 grams in weight. It has a volume rocker and lock key at the right side, Two call option buttons at the top where power button is also integrated with the End call option. There is the charging port, USB data port and 3.5mm jack at the top. On the left hand side there are two slots, one for extra sim and another for microSD card. It comes in ravishing four colors (Red, Silver White, Mid Blue and Dark Grey).

Battery

It has a standard Li-ion 1110mAh battery which gives up to 528hr at standby mode, 14hr in talktime mode and gives 40hr of music play which is really good compared to other smart-phones.

Cons

  • Ui tends to lag at times.
  • This phone wont give you smoothest experience as at times it shows lags.
  • It does not have 3G or Wifi options.

Verdict
Nokia ASHA 305 is one of the low end smartphone released by Nokia well it lives up to its name and shows an extra feature of dual sim and resistive touch screen. At the price range of $110 if you want a basic feel of smartphone ASHA 305 succeeds in doing so. If you don’t want to keep two cell phones in your pocket ASHA 305 saves you of that trouble. As I said in the beginning it is a low end Smartphone but it serves its main purpose of dual sim juggler pretty well also you have 40 free downloadable games to chose from and have a decent gaming experience.
