Nokia Asha 302 Review
sound, with no overly-sharp frequencies. It might be difficult to tell who's actually calling, but at least it sounds fine. On the other end things are pretty average. As we said, we like how the loudspeaker sounds – it's powerful enough and doesn't sound too bad when set at the highest volume level.
The phone should last about a month if you aren't touching it, which is pretty neat. Otherwise, theoretical 2G talk-time reaches 9 hours, while 3G talk-time is 5.9 hours.
The Nokia Asha 302 is your standard Series 40 affair. It doesn't have a touchscreen, but it compensates with a physical QWERTY keyboard, trying to appease those users needing such kind of input option. In terms of hardware, Nokia has done a remarkable job. There aren't many phones at this price point that can offer such build quality.
Unfortunately, this handset falls victim to its software, which is unintuitive and buggy. The Asha 302 costs as much as some low-end Android phones, which we would have been OK with, if it only meant that you won't be able to install many applications or do other such fancy stuff. But the Series 40 platform here is actually standing in the way of using the basic abilities of the phone, so why should you bother?
Software version of the reviewed unit: 14.26

software is "unintuitive "? I have a feeling Ray don't know how tu use simple phones.
That's a phone. And that's all. If someone needs only that, it's perfect.

I guess you need to read it to understand that it is a buggy software.

Well Android on phones with this price range is more buggy and laggy than this software .. So for this price it deserves more respect ...
