    Description

    The Nokia Asha 305 is a budget smartphone for the masses. The phone comes in a bar shape and possesses a nominal 32 MB of RAM. The Nokia Asha 305 has a dual SIM (GSM + GSM) functionality for those users who travel extensively or simply for those users who keep separate SIM cards for work and personal use.

    The screen on the phone is a 3-inch LCD resistive Touchscreen which gives a tactile feedback, which is the vibration felt by the user when a button is tapped. A resistive touchscreen is made of 3 layers and requires you to put pressure on it to sense the area of touch. The resistive touchscreen works with any pointing device like a stylus, a pen, or even your nail. The use of a pointing device makes the touchscreen usage more accurate.

    The Asha 305 possesses a 2 megapixel camera that comes with a digital zoom. The camera doubles up to allow video recording as well. It features tools such as White Balance, Auto Exposure and Image Editor which effectively simplify the usability of the camera.

    Design

    The Nokia Asha 305 is a sleek looking smartphone with stylishly cut edges. The dimensions of the phone are 53.8 x 110.3 x 12.8 mm. Hence, with a thickness of 12.8 mm, the phone is quite thin and fits well into the palm of the hand. The phone weighs in at an extremely light 98 g.

    Storage and Battery

    The Nokia Asha 305 comes with a nominal 10 MB of internal memory which can be expanded to up to 32 GB using a micro SD card. The device is backed up by a 64 MB ROM as well. This Nokia mobile is powered by a 1110 mAh Li-Ion battery that commits to up to 14 hours of continuous talktime when used on the 2G network.

    Connectivity and Features

    This small device is packed to the brim with connectivity features. It comes with a pre-installed WAP browser and possesses GPRS and EDGE technology to surf the internet on the 2G network. Additionally, files and documents can be exchanged over the phone’s micro USB port or via the Bluetooth function of the device. The phone also features a navigating tool in the form of Nokia Maps which uses GPS support.

    The Nokia Asha 305 also caters to the entertainment needs of the user. It contains a music player, a video player as well as an FM radio to listen to your favourite station on the move.

    The Asha 305 contains useful apps that come bundled into the phone such as World Clock, Organizer and Picture Messaging. It also contains social networking apps such as Gmail, Google Talk, MySpace and Windows Live Messenger which make this phone a highly useful buy.

    Very Good Phone.

    Great value for money- Nokia Asha 305.
    Phone looks very good, build quality is good and curvy design.
    The phone has resistive touch screen, but believe it or not it works like almost capcitive, I mean smooth touch!!!

    Good Phone

    1st - Its a dual sim stand by phone not dual active one
    2nd - Touch Response is really good
    3rd - Good UI
    4th - Music is loud and clear + when i was tapping i just tapped like capacitive phone and it responded well.
    5TH - Camera is not that good , Ok .

    4 star only due to less internal memory = 10mb

    Overall A Good Phone

    Good buy for Nokia

    A great mobile by Nokia.. Dual Sim + Touch Screen + 32GB expandable + under Rs5000... Great mobile. Only thing I don't like is it has LCD screen & Resistive Touch.. However, those who want to enjoy dual sim touch screen mobile can buy this one without any doubt. Nokia is back friends.. Just wait & watch.

    Not best of all, but the best below Rs.5000

    Nokia Asha 305 is the best phone available in the market below 5000. I tell this because I am a gadget reviewer and i use many kind of mobiles and already evaluated Asha 305.
    When i read the reviews of this phone in Flipkart, I saw many misunderstanding of people about this phone. I am just pointing out some of them below.
    1. So many people consider Asha 305 as a smartphone. Actually, it's wrong. It's just a feature phone. A phone is considered to be smart only when if it's Operating system i...

    Good budget phone from Nokia after a long time

    Have been using this phone for a week. Great battery life. Comes for 3-4 days on moderate usage. Camera clarity is great when compared to previous nokia phones. Touch response is a little lagging - but we got what v pay for. Definitely usable. Overall nice package from Nokia at 4.5K

    Don't Buy

    Mine got damaged within 2 weeks.(touchscreen damaged,phone hangs)

    The worst resistive touch ever!
    We have to practically squeeze the phone to make it work.

    Whatsapp isnt supported.
    Can't zoom on photos in memory card or phone

    THIS PHONE HANGS!!

    Believe me this hanging problem isnt confined to me alone,lot of my friends have reported this same problem.

    A Mediocre Mobile

    May be worth the price but definitely not worth of the features. Though it is a dual sim, sometimes one sim completes loses the signal when talking or using data on the other.

    Pros
    Cheap
    Battery backup
    Hardware

    Cons
    Touch
    Camera
    Doesn't support apps even like Whatsapp
    Hangs a lot
    Sound is too shrill

    Overall if your budget is low, go for it.
