Nokia Asha 308 Review

Regarding Nokia Asha 308 price in Pakistan, hypes are going to be proved exact because it’s official specification are clearly unveiling the performance range and affordability. Asha 308 is a dual SIM phone with company’s Easy Swap technology to switch between the two communication networks. These kind of smart phones are getting fame day by day in emerging markets and Nokia has never kept aside its middle community customers, as it is a big line-up of its business success. Also Nokia has to sustain in the competition of smart phones but Asha 308 and Asha 309 would not be enough. According to the statement of CCS Insight analyst Geoff Blaber “The new Asha devices are essential to defend Nokia from a raft of low-cost Android alternatives”. Like its twin, Nokia Asha 309, Asha 308 facilitates the Life+ internet application which can be directly downloaded from Nokia store. There are many other developer tools in this smart phone which are scratched deep down to enlist in this review.The display of Nokia Asha 308 is TFT capacitive and its size is longer when compared to other smart phones of similar category. The 3 inches screen size is satisfactory to ensure that no daunting occurred while playing video games and watching video clips on it. The body is an overall impression of Nokia’s trend. Black and golden light colors are just awesome and suits the trimmed and curved body of Asha 308. It is equipped with a rear camera of 2MP that snaps the live moments of our life with low resolution. And you can only expect a front camera in such a low priced mobile phone because it is very difficult for the company to sustain the costs of a front camera within this budget.

The support of Life+ application is debuted in this cell phone to bring you the latest information of education, entertainment and other topics. It is not available in the official specification but you can download it from the Nokia suit. As both new comers, Asha 309 and Asha 308 are compatible with Nokia’s new Xpress web browser, you will have an internet experience which is enriched by plenty of entertainment in a speedy way. Asha 308 is a dual SIM phone by Nokia and as mentioned earlier, it comes with company’s Easy Swap technology. You do not have to reboot the mobile phone to change SIM card as the slot for placing SIM card has been made on the right side of body.

It supports a removable battery which lasts for 6 hours of talk time and 40 hours of music playback. And what else you expect in such an inexpensive smart phone. Even these applications are more than enough if you compare it with such a price tag.
