I have used this phone for few months..No lags at all..No problems at all..The touch is amazing..This may not be a high tech smartphone,but when you use it you will feel that your actually using a smartphone..The battery backup is more than enough for me..Thank you Nokia for creating such mobile devices! :) I recommended this phone for everyone who wants to use a smartphone without the problems you will have to face if you buy a different smartphone.. :)
IamBacK, 18 Apr 2013hahaha..... u r funnY Mann !!!! S40 in its self is a Symbian Variation just an OLD one. Symbia... morehey hey...who are you calling dumb people?im also a user of nokia asha 311...im really satisfied with my phone...but we all agree that its not a symbian phone...it may not be a simple java phone..its a java phone with some smartphone features...why doesnt this have copy and paste function?simple because its not a smartphone...why doesnt this support antivirus apps?simply because its not a smartphone..why cant this multitask?(we know that all smartphones do not support multi tasking,but still)simply because its not a smartphone..im not telling that this is not a good phone because its not an actual smartphone,what im trying to tell is this is not s symbian phone..but what i know best is that this phone is an excellent phone.. :)
Douw, 19 Apr 2013Exactly what I was saying. The 311 can do everything except handling phone calls, sms's, misse... morewhy say so?have you ever used it?if you get a missed call or sms it will appear on the slide to unlock screen...and if you slide the relevant box for example missed call notification box,it will automatically take you to the missed call menu...and if you slide the message notification box it will automatically take you to that relevant message.. :)
robrona, 19 Apr 2013 Is the Nokia Asha 311 sold with a data cable?yes..
piyush, 19 Apr 2013it cannot play flv,vlc video formats.Document viewer is also not available.NOT MULTITASKING CA... moreIf u want to see flv,vlc player then look at for dekstop, nt phone. With high ranges phone with software u can see flv format.

IamBacK, 18 Apr 2013Do you even know how to use a Mobile Phone or lets say How to Dial Numbers or use the Contact ... moreExactly what I was saying. The 311 can do everything except handling phone calls, sms's, missed calls etc. in a quick friendly way.
I bought this phone in oct 2012, no problems till now,
its touch is awesome, never lags. Apps are very few and not attractive when compared to android.
it cannot play flv,vlc video formats.Document viewer is also not available.NOT MULTITASKING CAPABILITY.IT can play videos upto 720p but its quality is not good due to less ppi.so,it is not considered as a smartphone.
But in feature phone upto 5500 it is better than any other phone of any platform/company.it supports all types of images and videos which is not supported by any other phone in this category like samsung galaxy y,y duos,etc like PNG,WMA files.

Douw, 17 Apr 2013This phone is a total disaster. The software developers forgot the primary function of a phone... moreDo you even know how to use a Mobile Phone or lets say How to Dial Numbers or use the Contact List ??? I guess not. Cause I have never seen such a CHEAP Mobile thats simply AWESOME in every ASPECT of it.
- Awesome 3G Speed (I wish 3G was cheaper in INDIA)
- Very Good WiFi connectivity (infact the 1st phone that gave me my full download speed 512 Kbps via WiFi)
- Downloaded 25/40 Free EA Games for my Nephew.
- Downloaded 8 GB of Songs from NOKIA Music UNLIMITED Store (got the "comes with music" unlimited for 3 months) DRM Free Music thats yours to keep for life. Can Use the Nokia Music Store on 1 PC & 1 Phone. The PC Download is of Superior MP3 Quality (256 - 320 Kbps) while the Mobile Download is of Superior M4A Quality (small size) but wont play that great on PC or Music Players. All the Music is Legal & can be shared with Friends n Family :)
"It Feels GREAT to Live a GUILT Free Life n own Legal Music thats Mine to Keep for Life." :)
- The Video Looks great on the Gorilla Glass (cant believe such a CHEAP Phone can have a Gorilla on it) Plays MP4, Xvid, DivX but yaa.... it seems that the CODECS somehow n for some reason play only a certain CODES (Variations) of the 3 video formats.
- USB on the GO - WORKS CONFIRMED !!!!! hahaha still cant believe its there on this NOKIA cause I still remember the day I 1st saw this Tech on NOKIA N8.
- And Yaa by the way the Network Reception is AGAIN AMAZING Just like every other NOKIA.... No PUNN Involved :) Gets its RECEPTION while in my JEANS thats HANGED in my WARDROBE... SO......
NOKIA ASHA 311 = Symbian 311 + Meego = AWESOME
This COMBO is being worked upon & being bought back just so that the Phones can be a lot CHEAPER. Its New VARIANT is gonna F* the Hell outta ANDROID very soon. Feels GOOD to know that this COMBO JUGAAD has been worked out by INDIANS :) THUMBS UP DUDES !!!!
So for all those FOOLS & Tech GURUs saying Ooooo this S40 is very OLD........ HOW Much More DUMB Can You be ???
nick123, 17 Apr 2013this is an s40 java phone...its not symbian...but its better than the normal java phones..hahaha..... u r funnY Mann !!!! S40 in its self is a Symbian Variation just an OLD one. Symbian S40 used to be installed on NOKIA Bar Phones..... way back!!! So Now to make the phones cheaper they have bought S40 back to life on ASHA Series only difference is its mixed with Meego to support the new age Touch Tech.
i.e. NOKIA Asha 311 = Symbian S40 + Meego = Amazing Touch Phone thats CHEAP...... V. CHEAP (when compared to Specs.)
All those people are really AWESOME who expect a GALAXY S4 or Lumia 920 for the price of ASHA 311 :)
Where do DUMB people come from ????
