If you want to gift your mom a smartphone then please go for the new range of Nokia Asha series! With the backing of a reliable brand name, the Nokia Asha 310 are extremely user-friendly and a great way of bringing your parents into the smartphone league. Recently, on my mother’s 50th birthday I gifted her, the amazing Nokia Asha 310 smartphone, and trust me she has only good things to say about this phone. My mother was very touchy about the big and huge screen phones we used to carry, hence while checking out good smartphones my main priority was the phone should not be huge or bulky. And voila, I got exactly what I was looking for!nnThe Nokia Asha 310 comes with a decent 3-inch touch screen display with LCD Transmissive technology that gives crisp and clear view of images. My mother does not have to strain her eyes for looking at the name of the person calling. With an orientation sensor, the phone rotates its viewing angle as per her comfort. Recently my mother started browsing the internet. Now she does not have to wait for the computer to open. She readily browses cooking recipes and cooks sumptuous food for the family. The Nokia Xpress Browser is quick and fast in browsing and also saves the data usage amount to a large extent. The phone connects to nearby Wi-Fi hotspots for my mother to enjoy the new internet browsing experience.nnThe smart metallic body with classy colours enhances the overall look of the smartphone. It looks really smart when my mother carries the phone with her and her friends give her an envious stare. The 2 MP camera of this phone clicks decent pictures and she can upload it to the social networking sites easily. Though my mother is not a game freak, but this phone also offers 40 EA games for free! This feature, honestly, excited me a lot. Now, I could relive my childhood days by playing all these amazing games on my mother’s smartphone. I feel like a child again, thanks to the Nokia Asha 310. The small and handy size of this phone also fits perfectly inside the purse of my mum’s.n nThis smartphone comes with dual SIM facility, where my mother can just pop-in two SIM cards for convenience and emergencies. She does not have to switch off the phone completely to access the SIM cards. Both the SIM cards can be used simultaneously without any kind of glitches. Another exciting feature is the Nokia Maps navigation in this smartphone. Now I do not have to worry about my mother when she is going alone somewhere. I have taught her to use the navigation and now she can find her destinations with a simple click. This smartphone has been a great help to be in touch with my mother 24x7. And moreover, she is in love with this phone too.
