Affordable and durable

Display, design and OS

The Asha 230 is an entry level phone from Nokia that packs a 2.8-inch 240 x 320 pixel resolution touchscreen display. It runs the Asha v1.1.1 platform which powers the affordable Asha series devices and is quite resource efficient. The device borrows a range of peppy colours from the Lumia series like blue, red, yellow, green, black and white. The build quality is a lot better than other ultra affordable phones, even though it's made of plastic material. There's a little arrow button at the front that acts as back/home. 

Camera and storage

The Asha 230 carries a 1.3-megapixel fixed focus lens at the back. It's powered by 64MB RAM which runs the Asha OS seamlessly. The device comes with 4GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 32GB via the microSD card slot, allowing you to carry your music library everywhere.

Connectivity, battery, other features

Connectivity-wise, the Nokia Asha 230 lacks both 3G and Wi-Fi, which is a thumbs down if you are looking towards it as a smartphone. For internet connectivity and powering up the inbuilt social networking apps like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Line, WeChat etc, it depends upon GPRS/EDGE. The Asha 230 is fuelled by a 1,020mAh battery which, as per the Nokia claims can deliver a maximum talk time of 11 hours and music playback time of 42 hours.

Verdict

The Nokia Asha 230 is a step above to the feature phones and a step down to the smart phones. It affordable, yet looks good and comes handy as a great little multimedia device. With a range of pre-loaded social apps, it keeps you connected on the go. Go for it if you are tight on budget and looking for something better than feature phones.

The current price is beyond your budget? Don't worry, the prices drop regularly. Our price tracker will let you know when the prices drop by atleast 5-10%. Just enter your email, and we will let you know the instant the price drops.
