The Asha 303 is a touch and type handset based on the S40 platform, 128 MB RAM and a 3.2-megapixel camera. Despite being a feature phone, this phone looks good, feels good and is loaded with features. Whether it be apps, Internet connectivity or a 1 GHz CPU, the phone has it all.
So the only question left to answer is, is this feature phone worth its price?
Look and feel
The handset has a rectangular frame, a Blackberry-esque keypad and a 2.6-inch screen. It comes in vibrant colors and looks suave. Whether it be the front or the back of the screen both look pretty good. The UI is pretty good too. Even though the handset is plastic, it has a shiny finish. It fits right in the palm of your hand and hardly looks cheap.
Apps and services
It is easy to even access your email or social network on this phone.
Internet on Nokia feature phones seemed like a distant reality some years back. When we used a feature phone like a Nokia 1100 or Nokia 7610, we hardly even thought of accessing the Internet on our phones. Well that is hardly the case with the Nokia 303, which we say very gladly. The Bluetooth connectivity is also pretty good.
If you were to take your shots and upload them to Facebook for example, you can forget about it. The FM radio on the other hand, is quite good. The headset reminds you of the Nokia 5800. You can even download music quite easily from the Nokia store.
The battery life is kickass. The Nokia Asha 303 is built to last when it comes to the battery.
Superb Internet connectivity, a 32 GB MicroSD slot and great apps hardly leave room for complaints although the camera left us kind of disappointed. But at a price of around Rs. 7200, we would totally recommend this handset. If you want a Nokia phone but can’t afford Lumia, this is the thing for you.
