Nokia Asha 300 on 3The Nokia Asha 300 has an easy to use touchscreen and a speedy connection to the internet.

Nokia launched their Asha range of feature phones, back in December 2011 and today we have with us, the Asha 300, the candy-bar feature phone, which was touted as one of the first phones to have Angry Birds pre-installed. Let’s find out if this Series 40 phone is any good.

Design and Build Quality
As is the case with most Nokias, the Asha 300 brings with it superb build quality and great attention to detail. The candy bar phone rests neatly in your palm and isn’t too heavy as well at just 85g. The phone is mostly built of plastic, but thankfully, there aren’t too many glossy bits, other than the screen and the chrome strip at the front. The volume rocker and the lock screen button are placed on the side. You remove the back cover with the help of the groove on the side. This process feels a little delicate and if you’re not careful, then there are good chances of the bottom retention clips breaking off.

This is a touch-and-type phone, so there’s no directional pad – just the keypad and the call answer and end keys, along with a shortcut to e-mail. The keypad is built well and the buttons offer good feedback. Having been accustomed to QWERTY keypads, going back to this conventional style was a bit odd, but those who are used to them should not have a problem. The rest of the connectors like the 3.5mm headphone jack, charging port and microUSB port are placed on the top. The Asha 300 also supports 3G, but there’s no front facing camera for video chat. In the box, you get a 2GB microSD card, charger, user manual, data cable and headset. Overall, a pretty good feature set in a very nice form factor.

Texting and updating your social networks is easy with the affordable Nokia Asha 302 as it comes with a full QWERTY keypad and dedicated shortcut keys for SMS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Plus, this great smartphone also features push messaging so e-mails and social media updates get delivered straight to the Nokia Asha 302’s homescreen, so no more missing out on important messages.

Styled with a slick metallic design, the Nokia Asha 302 comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera for taking pictures and video and 14,000 photos or 7,000 songs can be stored on the smartphone’s expandable 32GB SD card slot.

Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said, “With a full QWERTY keypad for fast text entry, the Nokia Asha 302 lets people stay in touch with friends and family via e-mails, social media and instant messenger. Plus, with all–you-can-eat data on Three they can surf the web and download content as much as they like without ever having to worry about going over their data allowance.”

The Nokia Asha 302 is available on pay monthly for £15 on Essential Internet 300 or £30 on The One Plan with all-you-can-eat-data.

Pay as you go customers can get the Nokia Asha 302 for £89.99. All in One 15 costs £15 and gives 30-day access to all-you-can-eat data along with 300 any-network minutes and 3,000 texts. Or All in One 25 costs £25 and offers 500 minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data for a 30-day period.
