Nokia is still working hard to get things back on track. Of course, the crises it has faced lower its position in the market, and a lot of other smartphone companies have taken its place. The recently event it held with Microsoft presented the flagship of Nokia, but will this smartphone survive with the other top dogs in the market? That’s of course a million dollar question. Meanwhile, Nokia is back on making its low budget phones and trying to keep its company at the top.
We are here to talk about the new member of the Asha series, the Nokia Asha 311. It’s not like Asha series is a flop thing. Of course, it is something that is running in different market, but it’s not a success story. If we look at the specs this new phone bring, you’ll be happy to find out that Asha 311 is offering a lot better features than its ancestors. Above all, the phone has a capacitive touch, rather than the resistive touch.
The phone has 3-inches display with 155 pixel density, which is protected by the Corning Gorilla glass, though the resolution is not really excellent. It runs a 1GHz processor thankfully, and enclosed a S40-based Asha touch interface. The impressing feature of this phone is the performance of its loudspeaker. At the back we’ll find the standard camera, which is 3.15-megapixel but with fixed-focus feature.
The phone has Penta-band 3G with 14.4Mbps HSDPA, 140MB of internal storage, which is again a sad thing, but thanks to the microSD slot Nokia has provided for the users to increase memory upto 32GB. It has the standard 1100 mAh Li-Ion battery, and some other standard features like Bluetooth v2.1, microUSB port, Nokia Browser and Nokia Store.
Overall, this phone is only for the beginners who want to taste a little bit of smartphones, or for those who are not so tech savvy. The negative point that we noticed about this phone is that it cost almost equally to the smartphones available in the market, which is also a drawback for the company, because people will of course go for smartphones not for phone like Asha 311 itself.
