Excerpt: I've owned the Nokia Asha 303 for about six months now and I've been very satisfied. Being unlocked it works great as a prepaid AT&T GoPhone. Technically it's a feature phone, but I use it for all the things you'd use a smartphone for. Internet browsing, checking e-mail/social networks, playing games, etc. The phone really shines as just a phone, though. The call quality is excellent, and texting is easy, although the portrait-oriented qwerty keyboard is a bit cramped.
Pros: Excellent call quality, Touch and type, best of both worlds, Great quality loudspeaker and volume, Many shortcuts, all customizable to your liking, Theme/ringtone/homescreen customization
Cons: Many hidden menus in UI, Small screen not great for internet browsing, Small selection of available apps
Excerpt: This phone is pretty good for a feature phone/borderline smartphone. Has great reception, good call quality (espeically with Voice Clarity), good keyboard w/ good predictive text software, responsive touchscreen, Wifi (no data plan necessary on At&T!), and some nice multimedia features. I think the biggest problem comes with the clunkyness of the UI. Symbian S40 has been around forever and even with some of the improvements that Nokia has made it still feels clunky.
Summary: THIS PHONE IS A GREAT PHONE IF YOU WANT IT FOR EVERYDAY USAGE. IT WAS COMPARED WITH A UP TO DATE BLACKBERRY SMARTPHONE BY MOBILE GAZETTE I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT! NOKIA MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT!
Summary: I had a Nokia Asha 201 before this one and was looking to upgrade a little but I didnt want a full touchscreen phone as I find it impossible to text, this phone provides the best of both worlds, a touchscreen for navigating round and a full qwerty keyboard for texting. It is lighter than my 201 and doesnt have the same spacing between the rows on the keyboard, which I thought was going to cause me problems but it is fine.
Summary: I chose this Nokia because I have very good experience with previous Nokias I owned but mainly because I conservatively still insist on hardware keybord (more and more difficult to find). I am very satisfied with this phone although I am still getting used to the rather small keys of the keyboard. There was only one hick-up for me - it took me a while to find out how to switch off the data connection (not relevant for the majority that uses data Internet connection).
Summary: Its weird.., they gave a very fast processor with an OS of very less applications available in open market and surprisingly no Multitasking... Capacitive screen and good camera and wifi are notable.. You will get Galaxy Y for 6700 around.
Summary: Having been in the market for a touch and type for a long time, The Nokia Asha 303 was a very pleasant surprise. I had initially planned to adjust to the non availability of the Qwerty keypad with the Asha 300, but while checking out the 303, I was pleasantly surprised with the dimensions. However, this is a downgrade from the E72. Navigating with the touch is very easy, thus making the learning curve easier, however, the OS is not as intuitive as the S60.
Summary: For all the people dissing the Asha 303 here in favour of the Galaxy Y DUOS and Motorola Fire, here's the thing. Low-budget Android phones are nothing but a disappointment. I agree, Android is an open-source platform with millions of apps, yippity yippity yap... It is also a resource hungry, power-eating fiend. The specs that you get on the Galaxy Y and the Fire look good on paper but hugely disappoint in terms of real-world usage.
Summary: It is a good smart phone for starters. The 3.2 MP camera could have been better with a flash, which is not there. The same old sturdy Nokia phone is what people expect from this handset and I am sure they wouldn't be disappointed.
