Conclusion: We're not sold on the Nokia Asha 311. It's a good feature phone that costs more than some great smartphones. The design is middling, the screen underwhelming, the camera poor and the functionality limited. Its interface is charming, it has plenty of pre-installed apps and when the price drops below £80, it will be more compelling, but in excess of £120, we'd sooner recommend a Nokia Lumia 710 , Sony Xperia Tipo or Huawei Ascend G300.
Pros: Small body, Charming touch UI, Great codec support
Summary: Given the age and low power requirements of S40, it’s incredible what Nokia’s pulled off here: it can do just about anything a smartphone can in a pinch. But here’s the thing. The UK mobile market is so heavily subsidized by the networks, there’s just no point bothering with a phone like this, when smartphones can be had for just as little.
