After having used this phone for about two weeks, I can recommend it to anyone who wants a really good basic/feature phone. Some points:

*The phone looks and feels nice. Don't judge it based on pictures alone, go and see/touch it yourself.

*The touch&type interface works well.

*Battery life is good.

*The external speaker has surprisingly loud and good sound quality. You can listen to music with this phone without earphones and actually enjoy the experience.

*The internet browser is surprisingly good for such a basic phone.

*Good and realiable call quality.

Overall a very nice phone.

> In reply to apingniaring @ 2011-12-14 09:04 from tWhn - click to readIt is a symbian phone with java in it.
In detail it is symbian40 (s40) device. Not a smart phone and we can't multitask.
Well i am always a nokia lover. But 1ghz for s40 seems awesome with 128 mb ram. So no hang problem.
The only thing i hesitate to buy this phone is there is no multi tasking. Otherwise ok..

And hey wreck i have been reading your comments. I know how you had been cheated by nokia x2, i am in the same position with my nokia 2730 (bluetooth issue , java apps etc problem..)

so i request you to give a authentic comment coz i don't think cedar is better than this. So can you please explain how cedar is better than asha 300. Coz i think 1 ghz processor with s40 and 128 mb ram combined should offer better performence than cedar.
And how to know the java heap size they support. Like u mentioned games more then 2mb doesnot supports.

Sorry for my bad english. Eagerly waitin for your answer.

From a confused customer.

> In reply to Bunga citra darsimah @ 2011-12-16 09:36 from thtA - click to readHello... I didn't ask and don't even care about camera. I need a *phone* that can runs Java application smoothly with good sound quality for calling.
Asha 300 does have a good specs but it is so f*cking cheap and ugly looking, similar with a cheap Chinese phone.

Guessing from your name it seems that we are coming from the same country. I feel terribly sad that my country mate doesn't know any kind of respect to others opinion by calling them stupid. Look at yourself first before bashing others.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2011-12-15 09:20 from P5PR - click to readThis phone got very low java capability in comparison with cedar.
The max java size is 2mb as other s40's. Means it cant play the real 5800 version of angry birds, the name which is used in its marketing. Only the poor 1.8mb version of the game works here. Where as cedar, though lack a touch screen plays those real angry birds .jar files smoothly.

Besides asha 300 cant multitask. There by ruining the extra specs in the hardware dept. Into a gimmick.
And no midp based device can run faster by adding more processor clockspeed or ram. Those sort of speed increase stuff work only in smartphones.

About audio clarity , I am waiting for an authentic review by gsmarena. if its below x2 in the review, then cedar is better.

Bought this phone just yesterday evening and it is an awesome phone, despite it not having any WLAN/Wifi feature in it (doesn't matter coz i already have an iphone).
The camera is superb and speaker sounds great as well.. and it is very fast due to its 1Ghz processor as compared to X3-O2... furthermore the touchscreen is simply amazing for this range of phone :) cheers
