I personally own one of this asha 303, well probably a gift from my parents, and a replacement phone, my old phone is the nokia 3120classic.
I have this phone for almost two months now, I use it in school, doing research, thanks to the onboard wifi connectivity, and even without wifi, you can access the internet smoothly, because of its 3.5g network capability.
The camera here is good, the UI of the cam is very much appealing to me. What I miss is the flash, I get used to it on my old 3120classic, so taking pictures at night is not that good.
Well, the video is good. It also has a good microphone, thanks to it, Ive captured my memorable highschool memories even just for a month.
It also has a big carrying capacity, capable of handling memory cards up to 32gb, mine has only 8gb of memory.
It to me is user friendly, for it has the same OS to my old phone. It is also a social hub, Fb chat, fb, tweeter, yahoo in the homescreen.
Here are the problems that Ive encountered upon using it.
- IT SUDDENLY RESTARTS ITSELF
even when reading a text message, or scrolling for pictures, the screen suddenly freezes, then it would go blank, then comes on again but then shuts down, then when you press on any keys it is now back on.
- JUMBLED SMS ON THREAD
yep, after constant conversation with friends (the Philippines is said to be the Text Capital of the World) you will suddenly see the text of other contacts on the same thread. But it is fixed after restarting the phone.
- NO CAMERA FLASH!!!!!
Yep, as what I have said earlier, I miss the flash, oh how I wish nokia added flash to this, hope.
- CONTENTS ON THE MUSIC PLAYER NEVER SEEMS TO GET OFF
deleted songs or vids never seems to get out of the library. Even after restarting the phone.
- THE MANUAL SAYS THERE IS NOKIA MAP, BUT I CANT FIND THAT APP ANYWHERE ON THE PHONE.
on the memory card, you can see the cities folder, lots of stuff in it but MAPS on the menu, is absolutely missing.
- THE "TEMP" FOLDER ON THE MEMORY CARD, EATING SPACE.
I dont know what's in that folder, but time after time it is growing, onetime it reached 500mb. Any news bout this?
- YOUTUBE : ONLY IN WIFI
yep, it seems that youtube only plays in wifi, as of what Ive experienced.
Amid all of this, I still love this phone, perfect for my needs, social media, researching on-the-spot, photography, videography, games etc. Asha 303 rocks :)

the problem with this phone, it restarts automatically but i notice that a lot of nokia phones have this characteristics like my nokia n96 and nokia x3-00
Hi. I'm planning on buying a new phone. I don`t want it to be too expensive like a Blackberry or Samsung Galaxy but I want it to be techy, user friendly, stylish, media playable, good quality. I dont want a BB (though my parents keep offering it) and Galaxy and Wave are just as expensive. The last phone I had was a LG Prada but it broke (and I loved it so much) and we had to send it to repairs 3 times till my dad just told me to drop it. I`m looking for a similar phone but much cheaper. I`m not much of a social person so I don`t need BBM, Twitter or anything. So long it's nice, sturdy, elegant and can play music real well, plus a lot of customized settings, I'm good.
So I wanted to know if this is any good?
