Nokia Asha 305 Price

Overall Review

Nokia Asha 305 is a budgeted mobile phone that is running on Nokia Series 40 platform and is manufactured by the Finnish handset maker, Nokia. The Asha series by Nokia is specially made for Asian market as it is a potential market of middle and low priced phones. It carries a candy bar touch form factor and is free from any physical keypad. This is the first handset, along with Nokia Asha 311 and Nokia Asha 306, in the Asha series that has full touchscreen. The phones in the Asha Series are well doing in the market and this phone is going to increase the contribution of Nokia handsets in the market. This is a basic feature phone that gives access to many of those applications and features, which are available in many of the smartphones. Nokia Asha 305 is an easy swappable dual SIM feature phone that makes the usage of two networks full of fun and adventure. The users do not have to take load of changing the SIMs as with a single click they can easily toggle between the networks.

The pre-installed Nokia browser enable users to spend more time with it without spending much money over it. The device comes packed in a hand-able size of 110.3 mm x 53.8 mm x 12.8 mm and holds only 66 cc of volume. The chassis are all made up of strong plastic that keeps the body sturdy and strong and also leads to a bearable weight of 98 grams. This feature phone is available in four vibrant colors – black, red, blue and silver. It runs on Nokia Asha OS with Swipe Interface that provides comfort to users while dealing with the touch sensitive screen. Nokia Asha 305 comes with pre-loaded Facebook and twitter social applications and 40 Free EA games such as Tetris, Bejeweled, Need for Speed The Run and Fifa 2012, plus the users can also download many games of their choice. This feature phone has been designed to deliver a rich smartphone experience to customers that want to be free from short battery life and excessive data costs. The device has got simple yet attractive look where the front has fully touchscreen with two physical buttons below the display that are used to connect/answer a call and to disconnect a call. Apart from this, the front also holds Accelerometer and Orientation sensor. The right side holds a dedicated volume rocker with a lock/unlock key, whereas the left is the home for a second microSIM card slot and a dedicated key for easy swiping between the two networks.

The top hosts a microUSB v.2 port, a charging point and a 3.5 mm universal headphone jack that apart from acting as an antenna for FM radio connectivity, also works as an A/V connector and enable users to attach big speakers and woofers to the device. The bottom of the device is left bare and has only a primary microphone hole. There is no secondary microphone hole for noise cancellation while on call. The phone lacks dedicated buttons for power on/off and for launching a music player. The best thing about this medium priced budget phone is that it incorporates many of the latest features with dual SIM capability, which other brands are not offering in their phones of this price range. Dual SIM functionality is really a stunning features as it saves one from the burden of second mobile phone. This means, the users can rely on the second network in case the first network is not supporting properly so that they can always remain in contact with their loved ones everytime and from anywhere. Dual SIM function allows the use of two services without the need to carry two phones at the same time. For example, the same handset can be used for business and private use with separate numbers and bills, or for travel, with an additional SIM for the country visited. Using multiple SIM cards allows the user to take advantage of different pricing plans for calls and text messages to certain destinations as well as mobile data usage. With Nokia Asha 305, one can keep their personal and professional life different as it offers dual SIM feature, so users can access separate networks for different works. They can also personalize these networks by setting different caller tunes and messages alert for both networks. With the touch sensitive screen, the users can enjoy the multi touch facility along with pinch-to-zoom feature in viewing their images. It has accelerometer which turns the screen automatically as its users rotate the phone. There are plenty of basic features which one may expect out of the box from a low end basic phone, like radio, Java application, MP3/MP4 audio and video player, etc, and the most wanted feature in any market of the world, that are, organizer and downloadable games. However, there is no Wi-Fi in this phone and it also does not support 3G network. With this phone, one can also enjoy many Nokia features such as Nokia e-mail, FOTA, Wallpaper, Nokia Life, Themes, Nokia Maps, World Clock, Nokia Store and many more.

The most basic and essential function of a phone, either it is a smartphone or a basic phone, is to make or receive a call and some of the call management features are speed dialing, logs of dialed, received and missed calls, conference calling, integrated hands-free speakers, automatic answer, call waiting, call diverting and fixed dialing number support.
