Though choosing a Nokia handset might no longer be as automatic as it was in the nineties, when they were the undisputed king of mobile phones in retailers like www.phones4u.co.uk, it would be foolish to overlook them. Though they are no longer competing at the very top table they have built up a solid stable of mobile phones that can fit a range of budgets and technological desires. Whether you’re looking for a smartphone or a simpler device you should definitely still keep an eye on the Nokia production line. Here’s some advice on what exactly to look for.
With the Asha 203 Nokia is looking to produce a handset that doesn’t make its owner feel short-changed on the technology, but doesn’t include so much as making it prohibitively priced. Thus, consider the Asha 311 its grown up sister – more well-rounded, and with a number of impressive tricks up her sleeve. Entirely touchscreen and combining an LCD screen with resistant Gorilla Glass the Asha 311 looks and feels the part, but in fact it’s in its technological prowess that it really leaves its mark. With built-in WiFi and 3G capability, 1000Mhz processor and 128MB internal ram the Asha 311 is almost shockingly good at streaming things like YouTube videos in a clear, fast way. Not to mention allowing unbroken access to some pretty complicated internet pages.
As with many Nokias the Asha 311 isn’t a phone to which you should look to stash an extensive digital library on (though its memory can be extended with external memory-cards). Its camera is nothing to write home about either but as an interactive communications device it punches way above its weight. For that reason alone (as well as the fact you won’t pay anything near as much as with things like the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy) the Asha 311 is definitely worth a look when considering which of the many mobile phones available is right for you.
