|Amazon||Nokia Asha 311 (Dark Grey)||Rs. 7,100|
Nokia Asha 311 is not a camera device, but it does well on other fronts. Non-Android devices have their own benefits like good battery backup, no buggy OS etc. So if you looking for a feature rich, music centric and youthful phone in a budget, it’s your gadget. It’s the best Non-Android mobile below Rs 10,000.
Nokia Asha 311 is a powerful device designed for entry-level market segment. It has been powered by a refreshed S40 OS which, unlike Android, is fast and fluid. A package of preloaded apps and games (like Angry birds) make sure that you are entertained every time, everywhere. Furthermore, a bunch of free subscriptions let you download and install a number of additional games (like Need for Speed) and music for free.
Nokia Asha 311 Sports a 3-inch capacitive touch screen (you heard it right, capacitive!) topped with a customized version of S40 operating system. The new operating system is surprisingly fast and the 1GHz processor (more that the Samsung Galaxy Y) ensures that there is no sluggishness or lagging while operating the phone.
The mobile packs a 3.2 Mega Pixel camera without LED flash which produces nice output if clicked in the daylight. It lacks a front camera for video calling as well.
Nokia Asha 311 is a complete mobile when it comes to connectivity. While 3G and Wi-Fi keeps you connected with the fast life, features like Bluetooth and microUSB ensures a smooth file transfer with other devices. It also comes with Nokia Maps integrated which can come handy when you are lost.
It houses an 1100 mAH battery which can easily provide a backup of 2 days with moderate usage.

I believe Nokia has done in great job in pricing this phone. The Asha 303 at around Rs 7600 was definitely overpriced. For 6500 you get a phone with 3 inch capacitive screen, 1Ghz processor, a refreshed UI, the best maps application in the world, GPS, 3G and WiFi connectivity. Also worth mentioning is the scratch resistant Gorilla glass which I believe no other company offers in this price range. Plus 40 free games from the EA games. The OVI also has all the apps you will ever need (FB,twitter, angry birds, whatsapp etc). All this with the great build quality and the best after sale service from Nokia. Overall I believe this is a very good phone.nnYou can get a Andriod phone with utmost an 800Ghz processor in this range which would be very laggy while running most of the apps. So unless you can spend 9k to get a decent Android, better stick to s40.
i bought this mobile for my mom, but after using this for sometime i was really amazed with its responsive touch and performance,every features is uniquely cool,specially easy access of everything at this price range,though the cam quality is not upto expectations but its defiantly better than any other 3 mp mobiles at this range, but who cares this is the first touch mobile shes using for the first time, and tell u what, its very easy to learn, think ill buy one more for me,i have x3-02 touch type, kinda bored, and am not a hardcore mobile user!! nsonmy point :nThe good:n- Responsive touch,n- extremely good battery run time,n- smart design,n- camera better than equivalent htc or samsung 3 MP,n- 2 GB memory card included (not mentioned in specifications here),n- does not hang or lag.n-super speed processor n-nice gamming mobilennnThe bad:n- only 56k colour display,n- YouTube works but with poor video quality (240p),n- no A-GPS. (who cares) look at the price ;) nnso if u expect a mobile with tons of features at low price rangenthan android or whatever id suggest u go for asha 311 am sure u wont regret..
