Nokia Asha 310 Review

One of the most controversial series by Nokia, the Asha series has yet another phone in its family, the Nokia Asha 310 for the mobile users of Pakistan. The price of this phone is yet to be announced, however, it is expected to be ranging somewhere between 8,000 to 12,000 Rupees. So, for a phone tagged like this, there are a lot of expectations, however, the entire Asha series has failed to impress across the country. What is phone is really capable of is yet to be seen, still, there are a few things where this phone does make a mark.

Firstly, Nokia Asha 310 is the dual SIM mobile phone and in this way, users can easily operate the mobile phone on two networks. The dual SIM feature makes the mobile phone more attractive and affordable for users.

The second important feature of Nokia Asha 310 is the operating frequency. This latest mobile phone runs on GSM band 900 and 1800 on both the connections. If that is not satisfactory, it also has Wi-Fi connectivity as well to ensure a smooth internet experience.

Thirdly, Nokia Asha 310 has a smart 2MP camera for a slightly above ordinary imaging experience. Compared to the camera in Nokia Asha 309 or Nokia Asha 308, it is the same, so nothing to be excited here. The display screen, the quality and the screen add-ons are all the same as recent previous models in the family.

The thing that does not fail to impress is its multimedia and associated features, especially the MP3 Player. By using this feature, users can listen to their favorite songs for hours. Mobile users can do their messaging in the form of SMS, MMS, Email and IM. Then the users can also play different games. Furthermore, the phonebook of Nokia Asha 310 can hold up to 1000 contacts. In addition, Nokia Asha 310 offers dedicated alerts such as vibration, WAV and MPR ringtones.

Lastly, availability of Bluetooth feature makes this mobile phone a bit more attractive for the users. In addition, FM radio with RDS is also available in Nokia Asha 310. The battery life is the major part of this phone, which the user might adore. Giving a talk time of 17 hours and music play of 54 hours is not every Asha’s play. Other features of Nokia Asha 310 are SNS applications, photo viewer and predictive text.

So, what exactly makes this phone stand as something that can be called as a class apart? On the surface, everything looks the same as rest of the Asha phones except the battery timing. Well, te only thing that this phone gives is the Wi-Fi connectivity, something previous models were not offering. It looks that Nokia is trying to play things a little smarter this time. Still, it cannot be content with the success of Lumia 920 and has a long way to go to come neck to neck with Samsung or its other rivals.
