Nokia Asha series – ‘simple’, ‘impressive’

Nokia Asha 302

Time to take a look at what people are saying about various models from the Nokia Asha range now on Nokia Connects. We’ll look at the Asha 302, Asha 303 and Asha 305 – numerical order, why not?

Over at Tech Tree, Chandrakant ‘CK’ Isi has taken a look at the Nokia Asha 302 and produced a well-organised review. I especially like the Pros and Cons being at the top of the post (I usually see them towards the end) – in this case highlighting the ‘excellent build quality’ and ‘great value for money’, but bemoaning the ‘fixed focus camera’ somewhat. Chandrakant goes on to say that while the Lumia range are Nokia’s power hitter, the Asha range are the ‘footsoldiers, on a mission to conquer the mass-market segment’. Will they succeed in the war? Without spoiling too much of what is written, the answer is yes.

Nokia DNA has a review of the Nokia Asha 303 and cortex says that ‘things are simple’.

Some of the quotes from the review are enlightening:

‘slick and stylish with a lot of simplicity integrated’
‘not for the app freaks’
‘phone simply allures you at first sight’

Good stuff, worth checking out.

Finally for this Asha round up, a video review of the Nokia Asha 305 from Dr. Tech0logy:

It’s a *monster* review (over 37 minutes) but to say it is comprehensive would be an understatement. Take a look (maybe in a few sittings) and you will know everything there is to know about the Asha 305.
