Summary: At Rs. 7,200, the Nokia Asha 311 is very expensive and not worth a buy at all. We highly recommend you add another thousand and blindly pick up the HTC Explorer . If you want a newer version of Android, more internal memory and a slightly bigger battery, then for a little more, the Sony Xpera tipo is a very good choice at around 9K. The Asha 311 has good build quality and battery life going for it, but that’s pretty much it.
Conclusion: We’ve looked at the Nokia Asha 311 from all sides, but we’ve reserved its most important aspect, the price, for last. The device costs between $120 to $140 depending on the market which puts it in the same category as low-end Android smartphones. Devices like the Samsung Galaxy Y (sold for around $130), the Galaxy Pocket (around $115), the LG Optimus L3 (some $140) cost either the same or lower than the Asha 311, but bring you into smartphone land with tons of actually...
Conclusion: The Nokia Asha 311 might be the top handset in the range but it won’t cut it in the current market. The Series 40 operating system feels like old technology, polished to look like an Android, yet for the same money or less, you could pick up a higher specced ‘droid with access to the vastly superior Google Play store.
Pros: Good battery life; easily set-up email and networking; free EA games bundle
