Nokia Asha 305

The Nokia Asha 305 is a full touch dual SIM phone from Nokia running on Series 40 OS. Now a days, with smartphones becoming more and more dominant in the market, the dumb phones (not smartphones) have a tough time making it to the pockets of consumers. Nokia Asha 305 aspires to make it to the pockets despite not being  a smart phone. It is no dumb phone either. Coming with a hot swappable dual SIM slot, the Asha 305 is a resistive touch phone with a full touch Series 40 interface that has been flooded with cool features. The specifications of the 3inch Asha 305 do not tell much about the phone, but the software tweaks and features give the phone an edge over the competitors like Samsung Chat series which is around the same price. The Nokia Asha 305 has a 2MP camera that does not have auto-focus. For Rs4,500, let us see what the device offers you.
