A Glimpse:

This time Nokia has emerged with the most affordable touch model of the Asha series, that is, Nokia Asha 230. This full-touch operated gadget was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona—the capital city of the autonomous community of Catalonia in Spain. It is a durable mobile phone with 2.8 inch large pleasant display, dual-SIM support, Assisted-GPS, Stereo FM Radio, microSD card slot (supporting up to 32 GB) and plenty of other awesome features. Discussed below are some of the outstanding features of the gadget which, if compared with the price of the gadget, make it best choice for the low income buyers:

Dual-SIM—Calling, Browsing, Texting & Swapping Made Easy:

Here the dual-SIM doesn’t simply mean that you can manage your personal and business contacts quite easily—it accounts for a lot more! The thing is that handset remembers your personalized settings for up to five different SIMs, thus enabling you swap very conveniently at any time you want. In addition, you can be sure that you are going to get the best deals on calls, browsing and texting.

Wonderful Color Patterns with Asha Motion App:

With reasonable Nokia Asha 230 price in Pakistan, the device caters to the needs of even those who are looking for vibrant colors in their life. Here, you need not be content simply with the refreshing 6 outer shell shades (Bright Red, Bright Green, Yellow, Cyan, Black and White), as the built-in Asha Motion app has something special for you. Owing to the availability of this application, as you simply tilt, spin or shake the gadget, different wild and wonderful patterns are created which you can save as backgrounds and share with your friends, thus adding a little extra delight to your Asha experience.

Great Entertainment and Social Networking:

For killing your leisure time, there is a variety of super smart apps which bring you advanced social networking features. Included in the entertainment stuff, there is a gift of as many as 10 free games that will render you round-the-clock entertainment. Moreover, in the whopping 32GB microSD card storage, you can store all audio & video media files, games and any other kind of entertainment stuff. The primary camera sensor not only shoots beautiful stills for you, but also records medium quality videos. Similarly, with the help of Stereo Radio system, you can listen to your favorite FM channels with superior sound quality. The great apps, like WhatsApp, WeChat, LINE and LinkedIn, enable you stay connected with the world and get all your important social notifications directly on your home screen.

Efficient Power Management:

The standard 1020 mAh capacity of the removable battery and highly efficient power management will definitely inspire the potential buyers to buy Nokia Asha 230. It is surprising to note that the battery is powerful enough to give you the whopping music playback time of 42 hours, along with 8 and 6 hours of video playback and cellular network browsing, respectively. The dual-SIM standby of 21 days is just awesome.
