What are the Positives & Negatives of Nokia Asha Series Mobile Phones ?

June 9th, 2012

On the first review, we are very impressed with the new S40 Asha software and the Asha 305, 306 and 311 that were announced feature some key positives, including earlier-than-expected announcement and shipping dates. Some of the key things that we liked the most in the Phone are,

  • Prices appear to offer a healthy discount to equivalent Android phones
  • Attractive looking designs (inevitably a subjective view, but the UI is very similar to the N9 which is a positive)
  • Solid Battery Life
  • Improved browser that cuts bandwidth requirements and data charges while retaining some device based control and thus retaining a normal user experience
  • Full multi-touch support – even with resistive screens
  • You can see the comparison of various handsets of Nokia Asha Series here.

On the flip side, the phone doesn’t happen to have any except the latest devices strike us as clearly offering an inferior feature set to Android phones.

For the S40 which is the company’s strategy. No apparent change in underlying OS and has refreshed the previous version. No support for Qt. Qt is a developer framework that allows developers to easily develop and transfer their applications from one software platform to the next. This will hinder the growth of the Apps eco-system as you all know Apps are so essential in today’s world.
