Nokia Asha 200 review: Dual SIMpatico - read the full textNokia's Asha is back for another round of bargain basement action and we find ourselves wondering how much cheaper it can get. Most of the time it makes sense to be skeptical of the lowest bidder but we've found the Finns' budget lineup to be efficient...

Hi, in the Nokia website, the screen has 65k colors, why is that in this review, it is 256k? Please verify and confirm. Thank you.

No Wi-Fi and No 3G! I almost choked to death on my tofu burger! This day and age you'd expect them to be the bare minimum!

However, there are some internal system files you can't see through the phone menus - and if for some reason you need to access them, you'll need to connect your phone to a PC.

Got this as my secondary phone yesterday.

Can't find the equalizer presets.
"Not enough memory" message pops up I open the music player with a custom theme being used.
The Nokia software updater crashes (always).
Got the "this device can perform faster if you connect it to a high speed USB 2.0..." message.

using this phone for 2 days, enough for me to say it's kinda lame.
- no usb charging... r u kidding nokia? micro usb charging is an international standard. even for cheaper phone.
- echoing problem happen if you put your mouth close yo the mic, put it between 2 cm, the echo will gone away.
- no contact sync for Indonesian. contact the provider? where is manual setup like older nokia? syncml is a must!

+ qwerty pad is good, very responsive.
+ phonebook is okay.
+ monstrous battery!!!

price/feature? I give it 6.5 from 10

Their featurephones are the backbone of their business. If they fiddle with their featurephones and ruin them, it could be a complete disaster.

If you need to have 2-3 mobiles because the carriers are saturated, like Indonesia, just to make or receive a call, then decent 2 or 3 sim phones are the way to go. There is definely a market for them. In Indonesia I have a cheap phone with 3 SIM cards, 1xCDMA and 2XGSM to ensure carrier to carrier calls to reduce costs, as one can never rely on just any one carrier. Nokia is an excellent product and is one the correct marketing path. As a side issue, the CDMA gives far superior coverage and clarity. Can anyone explain why GSM is popular when CDMA seems to be superior?
