Nokia Asha 302 review

29 May , 2012  

As you may or may not know the past week I used a Nokia Asha 302 as my main device, as part of a challenge. The nice folks over at Nokia Connects sent the device over to me, and so I turned of my N8 and went Asha for a week. I wrote a series of daily posts describing each day and the challenges I faced with the Asha, if and how I got around them. Now it’s time for the full review. I won’t go trough every little setting on the phone since the purpose of this review is to show how you can get along with the Asha 302 to do your daily tasks.

First of all let’s see the specs.

Spec sheet


Storage 100MB
Micro-SD up to 32GB
Primary 3.2MP 2048×1536 pixels, no flash
Front facing No
Video VGA 640×480@15FPS
Size 2.4 inch
Resolution 320x240px
Technology TFT, 256K colors
Endurance Plastic
WLAN Yes, b/g/n
Network GSM, 3G
Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP
USB on the go Yes
Radio Stereo FM with RDS


As you can see, the specs are very impressive for a feature phone, rivaling some of the early Symbian devices with 128MB of RAM and the 1GHz CPU. My guess is the Asha 302 could have ran Symbian S60v3 without a hassle, but since Nokia is ditching Symbian, S40 will have to do.

Nokia Asha 302 – #SmartphoneLiteWeek

25 May , 2012  

A couple weeks ago, Tom from Nokia Connects made an offer that a Nokia blogger as myself just could not pass: trial a Nokia Asha 302 and use it as my main phone for a week. Me and three other guys took the offer and so the #SmartphoneLiteWeek has begun. I decided to write a daily post describing how I got along with the Asha on my personal blog, and now I’m gonna tell you the whole story here on NokiaTips.

Day one

First day without a smartphone… Using Asha 302 as my main device made me realize that I’m nor really using my smartphone to it’s full potential. Asides from smart dialing, the weather app and Dungeon Hunter 2 HD, I haven’t missed much so far.
