there seems to be lot of guys commenting on the specs of this phone and even comparing the lagging of samsung mid tier phones because of multi tasking......
but no one has commented on the build quality....i agree that nokia 311 has got capacitive touch screen, gorilla glass.....but the build quality is very very poor...especially the glossy back cover....come on nokia you atleast put a matte finish cover....or metallic like nokia asha 303 and nokia 302 not like nokia asha 200
[deleted post]hey u r wrong............samsung galaxy is agood multi tasking phone, running on android 2.3.5 and it can upgradeable.........but nokia it is running on a old os named s40 , instead of having 1ghz processer it is hanging always..........and more over it is not a smart phone .........when u r paying rs 6400 for nokia ...u r not getting that kind of facelity.....but when u pay this to samsung u r getting a ocean of application......so from that we r concluding that nokia cheated consumer......and u r wrong.
[deleted post]But why,because of non-multitasking???It's better not to multitask than multitasking w/ phone that is perfectly lagging like SGY.
About apps and games,Java is okay since Java is open source and many App Store are providing games for java like umnet,getjar etc. for free.
sumit, 11 Jun 2012s40 and no multi-tasking not for net loversI prefer non-multitasking phone than a multitasking but lagging phone
I have SGY,already rooted but afraid for my phone to be brick if I Super Charged it.
In competition between SGY and 311,sgy can multitask but you can also experience 'multi-lagging' while using it.So,the phone w/o multitasking and has impressive '1GHz-processor-for-a-feature-phone' tends to work smooth because the 1GHz processor is focused on processing the single task so,it's intended to be smooth and fast.
I just wish that I can use OM with multi-page for using Fb,Twitter etc. at the same time.I also want to see Nokia's strong partnership w/ M$ by providing Micosoft Word Office.
the build quality is very very poor.....its a really cool phone for the specifications but putting a glossy back cover is very unpardonable from nokia designers......in a weeks usage the back cover will have all the scratches and will look older.....
Search for fun, 11 Jun 2012this 1ghz processor is a crap because its not a multi tasking phone it should be if it contain... morewhats appening here u guys should not compare a java phone (nokia asha 311) to a android (samsung galaxy y), of course a andriod should have multitasking, but a java may not, what u guys are to do is to compare a java(nokia asha 311) to a java(samsung chat 222), which we all know that, Chat 222 does not have multitasking too, and belive me asha 311 is the best feature phone ever cos its nearly smart, it has a 1ghz processor, wifi, 3g, and lots more, and ofcourse its UI is the best have ever seen on a feature phone. So nokia has done their best producing this phone so u've got to appreciate that, and belive me asha 311 is better than some smart phones including some of samsung android phones. So if u dont like feature phones bcos of no multitasking dont go for it, instead of distroying the beautiful image of the best feature phone(asha 311), on just an odinary opinion, then go for a smart phone at least u should try comparing a nokia 701 or lumia 900 or 808 pure view and a samsung galaxy nexus, or S II. As for me asha 311 is great and belive me Nokia is the best.
it seems like an excellent phone to me, smart, or not. And I must comment here that GS3 that i saw a couple of days back, is no beauty either. All plasticky.
That's why i reverted to nokia for quality, and it does most of my jobs. as regards half a million apps, i don't have the time to use most of them, so i don't care.
Rubal, 09 Jun 2012Asha 311 is not a smartphone. So guys dont get betrayed.Its simply a touch phone with 1GHz pro... moredude look how affordable this phone is, dont just criticize the phone.. try it 1st, and besides samsung phones easily run out of battery..
