Phone stopped working after 3 months

Coconut00 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

It was a very laggy phone. It rebooted often. Another bad thing about it is that the app store has very few apps. After 3 months, it just stopped working all of a sudden. The Moto E and Lumia 520 are better options

Build quality 2/10
Reception 2/10
Call quality 2/10
Internet 1/10 Once I tried using the internet app. The device hung up, and it turned off.
Multimedia 1/10
Camera 1/10
UI speed 1/10 It is not only laggy but reboots very often.
Everyday usage 1/10
Text input 4/10
Display 1/10
Battery 8/10

Nokia Asha 311

ermayo93 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Not a single problem I have experienced except for one.
The swivel clip for the memory card is extremely fragile. It never could line up the contacts correctly for the memory card and the side pins came out of their mounting holes very easily. The SIM clip does not have this issue being that it is larger thus less susceptible to disconnecting. I am left using the phone memory until I can get this repaired.

Build quality 7/10 Very good build. Back cover cheaper plastic quality
Reception 9/10 As with Nokia, never a problem
Call quality 9/10 Read reception comment.
Internet 8/10 Fast 1Ghz processor. Use Wi-Fi when possible. Picks up Wi-fi connections extremely fast and well.
Multimedia 8/10
Camera 7/10 Mediocre but decent
UI speed 8/10 Decent
Everyday usage 9/10 Not too complicated
Text input 8/10 For the stubby fingered, can be a bit more diificult.
Display 7/10 155 pix density, a bit low for this type of phone.
Battery 8/10 Decent but nothing to holler at.


  • Design
  • call reception
  • Great UI ease of use


  • Pixel density low at 155
  • Memory card swivel clip very fragile. Hinge pin holes too small.

Lacking smartphone features

vivzta has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Small and sweet, for those who don't want to spend too much and that too on an ancient device, the Asha 311 is relatively new for those who want to keep it simple.
However, there are no popular apps available, contrary to the adverts! It's all very basic, so if you would like a smartphone, this may not suit you.

As of now, the Nokia XPRESS browser is ... not that great as widely advertised. And after two years, my battery now only lasts a day!

Build quality 9/10
Reception 9/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 5/10
Multimedia 6/10
Camera 2/10
UI speed 4/10
Everyday usage 5/10
Text input 2/10
Display 4/10
Battery 2/10


  • Strong build (like every Nokia!)


  • Camera lacks flash and autofocus.

It gets hang sometime, due to which I am unable to make any calls. It may continue for 15 to 30 Mins. There was experience, I made use of near by mobile when I was on travel.

But I have faced continuously with it irritating to an extend I can bear.

Ideal for the pnes who used to love basic phones and want to modernise themselves a little

gervasio has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

My old loved 5130 xpressmusic died and my friends and girlfriend always told me that i had to get inside the modern phones world. I wanted something basic but with the important things, such as 3g and whatsapp, and i did not fail in my decision to buy this nokia 311, even if it is a s40, it is fast and it is just made for myself.
