Battery Backup

The reliability of Nokia phones when it comes to battery life is incomparable. Nokia Asha 203 runs along the same line as its BL-5C Li-Ion 1,020 mAh standard battery delivers a maximum talk time up to 5 hours on 2G network and maximum stand by time up to 400 hours or 17 days.

Apart from this, Nokia Asha 203 supports Bluetooth v.2.1, has the 3.5 mm headphone port and a microUSB connector with a  charging slot.


Considering the fact that touch and type phones usually lie in high price segments and are as such rather uncommon, Nokia Asha 203 seems to be a value for money phone. Though not superiorly equipped with extremely advanced technological features, the phone fares well enough on most requirements of the young generation such as social media and multimedia applications. Cell phones like Nokia C2 03, which is a touch-and-type dual SIM slider phone, stand in contrast to Nokia Asha 203 with a slightly bigger screen size but lack in social media features, which Nokia Asha 203 is equipped with. Apart from this, Samsung Guru, iBall Glam 3, iBall Aaura, etc. are also there in the line up to give a smart, if not tough, competition to Nokia Asha 203.
