Nokia should change the name of S40 because some people are saying "OH it's the same old s40" while if you compare it how it was just two years ago you will see the improvement, while if you compare iOS from 2007 to 2012 you won't see any difference.
my Nokia 5230 is far better than crap asha311. At least i m having 16M colors and video@30fps.
1GHz processor is just like putting 1GHz on their 3310/3315 (Do u remember those models lolzz?)
Search for fun, 11 Jun 2012this 1ghz processor is a crap because its not a multi tasking phone it should be if it contain... moreYou seem to be right here. Explorer is slightly expensive than N311, but the advantages are incomparable.
Nokia seems to have lost touch with the ground reality, or they are doing it purposely. They cannot, just cannot, force-feed s40 at this age of ICS and WP8. This is ‘the Flintstones’ stuff.
A phone in the INR6000 bracket (the 311) is expected to have multi-tasking; which it does not have. Even the browser does not have tabbed browsing. The screen is also a tad small (3.2” would have been better). However, the screen resolution is just about OK, like the competitions are having. Probably it will not have text reflow as well.
Is Nokia trying to fool the emerging markets consumers with previous century gadget? Are they fooling themselves and moving backwards? This way, they will not be able to retain their most loyal customers; the consumers have lot many options before them than in the past.
The only saving grace would be the battery backup; and the possibility of the OS being updated by meltemi later this year (I am hopeful on this because of the three phones released, only 311 has capacitative screen).
this 1ghz processor is a crap because its not a multi tasking phone it should be if it contains a 1 ghz processor... Qualcomm 600mhz processor is far much better than this ... i would guide u people to buy htc explorer its much much better than this phone....
Rubal, 09 Jun 2012Asha 311 is not a smartphone. So guys dont get betrayed.Its simply a touch phone with 1GHz pro... moreThat would be a valid comment if S40 wasn't the only current platform that doesn't make you have to charge your phone each 2 days. Current operating systems drain the battery way too much, I personally don't think having an android phone that if you use for more than a few hours needs to be recharged that same day is ideal.

another semi smartphone from nokia..1ghz and the ram and rom plus the 3g support.
s40 platform only not OS...same with s60. maybe you are refring symbian OS.
Nokia has gone beyond imagination to have given out this charming model. I can wait to have it.
gud phone at an affordable price...
But lags in style compared to asha 305 n 306 it would have been better if asha 311 would hold the style of asha 306...
This is a wonderful phone.lacks gps and led flash.but has 3G support,wifi,a 1ghz processor and gorilla glass..how much can we expect from a S40 phone at such affordable price..
