all those saying things about s40 pls note that s40 is not the os it used to be in earlier feature phones......it basic changed a lot with a swipe ui now....it lags only in multitsking but in other aspects its better than its rivals at this price.......and also some of phones with higher price..............it has got an app store too.......and let me.tell u all that there is a pdf reader for s40 in ovi store..............it works quite well.......
and there is not much threat of virus or malware also like that of android.........
this phone is much like a smartphone(except the multi tasking)
is nokia coming up with a feo 808 runing on android or is this a joke
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2012is this 56K colour only why?56K colour nice or no niceno it should be at least 65k or 262K or 16M colors
Shivaji, 13 Jun 2012You know dude, What multitasking is? You are chatting in Facebook and needs a phone no stored ... moredude are you even know what multitasking is? Proper ultitaksnig can't do iPhone or Android (they just pause app). Real multitasking can do Symbian, Maemo, Meego/Harmattan and probably few others wich are already on a graveyard with Maemo and Harmattan and Symbian will follow...
I'm not talking those OS's are not quick and almost lagless with latest hardwere, but they don't poses REAL MULTITASK!
For this price of point it's more then decent phone and offers more then concurence at this price point.
You can buy better phone than this, but you will had to pay more too.
for me.. Its a waste of money... It has good capacitive touch screen...
wifi.. But its not worthy... Coz, it runs on s40 os.. Which does not support multitasking... Its mean if i using fb.. At the same, if i got a message then i have to close the browser to read the message...
and java phones does not support voip.... Means i cant call my nimbuzz friends for free... :(
its better to go for samsung wave 575.. Which runs bada os... Both nokia and samsung has almost same spec... But wave support multitasking... And looks smarter them asha...
Why nokia making phones with s40 os...
wake up nokia... And make some cheap smartphone which runs on atleast symbian s60v3
multytasking,gorillaglass,1gh processer are good but lack of flash light to 3.2 cemara disapointing kindly put a flash light for nokia fans & increase price Rs.1000 it will be hot cake.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2012All those people...who are saying that there are better androids in this price........
I wa... moreYou are totally wrong.
1.Android phones like Samsung pocket play angry birds smoothly...Have you ever tried it before posting such a comment?
2.And what do you mean by android 2.3.6 is old?what about the s40 os...?It's been in use for longer time than android 1.0
3. What do you mean by there is no use buying an android if it can't run two apps? Just open the running services in the Android task manager and you shall see for yourself how many apps Android runs in the background.
4.There is nothing like semi multitask...its either multitasking or no multitasking.
5. Not as good ones present on the play store.
And you seem to be happy about 15 angry birds level when you can get more than 100 on android.
shantanu, 13 Jun 2012I'm thinking to buy nokia asha 306 or 311 but confused with sgy tell me wich is better one? al... moreGo for the sgy its a wayyy better phone than the asha 311.The sgy has GPS,better operating system and a better screen.
is there an Nokia Feo 808 runing on android 4 launching or is this a joke
shantanu, 13 Jun 2012I'm thinking to buy nokia asha 306 or 311 but confused with sgy tell me wich is better one? al... more306/311 are single sim, the 305 is dual sim but without WLAN. the 311 is WAYYY better than the 305/306 based on specs and people who tried both.
I'm thinking to buy nokia asha 306 or 311 but confused with sgy tell me wich is better one? also confirm asha 306 & 311 are dual sim or single ?
I Wil buy this piece if it costs around 6000rs.. 1 thing s40 never offered is multitasking. A must thing an user expects in his mobile.
Nokia never tried to make s40 rich in features. They jst moved wid changes not added anything extra to make it rich..
Next major things i expect from asha phones (not suddenly) r gps, tv out, nfc, bt 3, multitasking, even higher resolution screen, better camera experience & features, browser wid flash, more codec support.
Sure starters wil hav a smartphone experience in low end.. And competition for boring galaxy y like droids..
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2012yes this is not a smart phone. it has no OS.Damn is there anything digital without OS. Even your wrest watch has an OS. It has OS and is S40 series.
Nokia developer site says it has 16 bit display that means its 65k color display not 56k. Gsmarena correct the spec.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2012All those people...who are saying that there are better androids in this price........ I wa... moreDude the point is Nokia is getting killed because of this. S40 on "A 1GHZ processor?" That's like putting the hulk on steroids and asking him to carry your stuff toy! No offense to nokia and you
