Nokia Asha 302 Review

Nokia Asha 302 Review
Introduction:

The Nokia Asha 302 is one of Nokia's newest feature phones, created for the manufacturer's numerous customers in the developing countries. This is a field where Nokia is traditionally very powerful, as its Series 40 platform offers an affordable, yet feature-rich handset experience. However, with recent low-end touchscreen Android models getting dangerously close as far as pricing goes, it would be very interesting to see if the new Asha 302 and its physical QWERTY keyboard would be able to remain relevant on the market.

In the box you'll find:

  • Nokia Asha 302
  • Wall charger
  • Nokia Stereo Headset WH-102
  • User guide


Design:

Nokia may have lost many battles recently, but it's still a leader when it comes to crafting beautiful handsets. In this particular case, this doesn't mean that the Asha 302 manages to fascinate us with its appearance, but it does mean that it is pleasant to look at. We are testing the dark gray version, which is overly neutral, but when you couple this to the chrome-like elements found on the device, it does make for one good-looking phone.



You can compare the Nokia Asha 302 with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.

Of course, Nokia has remained true to the solid and high-quality build by incorporating a metal back cover. The plastic that has been used for the buttons on the front side is also nice to the touch.

In addition to the 3.5mm headset jack, there are separate charging and microUSB ports, although the microUSB one can be used to charge the phone as well.


The keys of the physical QWERTY keyboard react decently to the touch. However, they are also very small, so in case you have bigger fingers, the typing experience won't be great. Otherwise, the keyboard is OK and will get the job done. It would be best if you try it in-store, before you buy the phone, to make sure that it suits you.



Display:

The screen of the Nokia Asha 302 measures 2.4 inches, and has a resolution of 320x240 pixels. It's not the sharpest-looking panel we've seen, nor is it worst one. Outdoor visibility is so-so, while the viewing angles leave much to be deserved. Still, in a handset of this class, the 2.4” screen of the Asha 302 is more than enough.

software is "unintuitive "? I have a feeling Ray don't know how tu use simple phones. Sad. 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 ...
