AnonD-17191, 28 Apr 2012do not buy this phone even do not think about this phone..
worst ever phone waste of money
1) No volume con.
Yap. That's why I bought... You know what it is. Hahahahaha.
2) Wifi not working.
Working perfectly for me.
3) No brightness con.
Get a decent screen filter. And avoid using smartphone in the dark area especially before you sleep. It doesn't matter it has a brightness control or not from the first place.
4) Cheap material.
Some people like it, some people don't.
5) I would say, the short battery life too. It really sucks! Of course, I bought a extra li-ion charger.
That's exactly why some people should not buy a budget phone like this one as you said. There is always a catch especially in the cheap one, but just same as the expensive one like they "catch" your location all the time.
AnonD-38430, 28 Apr 2012Yeah.. biggest con of s40 phones is no option to adjust screen brightness.. Even cheap china m... moreYeah, you're absolutely right. Its too bright. That's why I bought a screen filter so that I can reduce the light little bit. So far, so good. Another extra money. Thanks NOKIA, you're the best! Hahahahaha.
By the way, my friend (he is a doc) told me that, he does not recommend that I use the phone in the dark place, especially before I sleep. Because sometimes those bright screen light could cause me a sleeping disorder EVEN IF it has a brightness control. According doc, its still too bright as long as you use the phone in the dark place. Just FYI.

Even cheap china make phones have this option... It is hard to concentrate/watch on 'too bright' screen during night time/in dark area, it can damage our eyes.. Nokia should consider this feature for their s40 phones
do not buy this phone even do not think about this phone..
worst ever phone waste of money
no volume keys
wifi not working
no adjustments of scrren brigtness
my personal suggestion is please never buy this phone
To be precise, S40 is not a simbian based platform. My bad.
If you like SE java phone so much, just go for it. I wouldn't mind at all. Just don't buy this phone. I don't recommend either. That's the way it is, isn't it.
You can "hide" (what they call) some of the apps without closing it. But, not all of them as you expect unfotunately.
Simply, nokia is not making the new symbian OS anymore. I thought. I am just dreaming it. I don't know.
is nokia asha 302 dual band or quad band??? is nokia asha 302 can be use in japan or not?? i need your immediate answer please thanks
Great design n spec bt crap s40 ruined dis , if it would hv wid s60, it will worth every single penny of 6000 ..bt for s40 price must nt hv crossed d threshold of 4500 ..oh poor nokia u cn beg for ideas we r here please dont disappoint us so much..:-(
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2012So far, no such feature. Perhaps never will be. I don't know. But, like I said, they will make... moreOk.. But i am not getting that why nokia still have not implemented apps minimizing feature in their s40 phones? Just look at sony ericsson Java phones, from many years, they all have apps minimizing feature & a very huge java heap size..
AnonD-38430, 26 Apr 2012I have not any problem with 1-2ghz cpu n 128-512mb RAM in s40 phones, i asked that bcoz i want... moreSo far, no such feature. Perhaps never will be. I don't know. But, like I said, they will make sure that you get some decent memory on board as they change the OS. Unless otherwise, nobodys going to buy it.
lana, 25 Apr 2012guys anyone know how to adjust the brightness of this phone? it's too bright. i just bought it... moreit's not possible yet so wait for new phone to come might that phone that ..........
if any one wants to adjust brightness of these asha series mobiles he needs to wait for nokia to provide some soft ware update to do that and really i used asha 200 it was shocking for my eyes and couldnt use more than one day had to give out...
Anonymous, 25 Apr 2012 1) Why 1ghz? Because its fast. I don't quite get it why people are so complaing about it?? ... moreI have not any problem with 1-2ghz cpu n 128-512mb RAM in s40 phones, i asked that bcoz i want to know whether this phone have minimizing apps/ multitasking feature or not, bcoz for minimizing apps/ multitasking feature you need these type of cpu n ram capacity..

1) Why 1ghz?
Because its fast. I don't quite get it why people are so complaing about it??
3) Music player can be background. Pre-installed prg "Social" can hide, which is quite slow by the way. Default browser can not. But, it keeps the fb session as its closed. And you can start from the last page unless you logout or clear the cookies. So as opera mini.
Some prgs are quite optimized for the social use. Other than, its still a single task OS.
They will install 1ghz continuously as they make the new phone in this year. Don't worry about the memory. They will increase the memory. But, need to install basis.
