Nokia Asha 310 Review

Camera

There is a basic 2 MP camera on the back with fixed focus and no flash, so the photographic results are pretty poor. Nokia has spiced it up on the interface side, letting you apply a number of color effects to the pictures, and also switch on the “fun sounds” option which can turn your boring shutter sound into a crazy karate battle cry, among other things.


The photos come out rather overexposed and washed out, with unnaturally high color saturation, and even blurry spots. Video is shot with 176x144 definition, so it's not even worth watching on the phone's screen, let alone for any other purpose.



Multimedia

The gallery has a simple grid layout for photo thumbnails, but it has a surprisingly powerful editor built-in, which lets you crop, rotate, enhance, remove red eye, annotate, add effects and so on.


The music player sports categorization options by artists, albums, playlists, and even genres, as well as a few equalizer presets. The loudspeaker is not crystal clear, but with a pretty strong output.


Standard MPEG-4 videos can be played up to 480x800 definition, though the 3” low-res display is not exactly welcoming for video playback.

the phone is less laggy than most android phones, and most play sote appls won't run on QVGA phones anyway

The camera doesn't look as bad as the review say.

WQVGA is just fine on this phone, just imagine WVGA making the phone all laggy and pointless.

Nokia phones are reliable and good resale price. In particular this phone is very handy and with nice features like WiFi, map and weather etc.
