Nokia Asha 305, 306, 308, 309, and 311 Comparison

Nokia has announced this summer the Asha 305, 306, and 311 smartphone-like mobiles and today they added to the lineup the Asha 308 and 309 models. All of the listed phones have S40 OS running on their 3-inch displays at 400×240 pixels and the main difference between the particular models is whether they have resistive or capacitive touch panels, as well as dual SIM and Wi-Fi support. It’s nice to see that Nokia has finally started implementing capacitive touch technology, since the resistive screens on form factors without physical navigation are somewhat hard to use. One of the examples is the older Asha 300 model.

For comparison of the main differences between the phones, you can check out the table below.

Besides these facts, it’s worth noting that the highest end model of all listed – the Asha 311 – is said to have Corning Gorilla glass over the screen and a 1GHz processor.

The Asha 305 and 306 share the same industrial design, as well as the 308 and 309 models.

Although Nokia calls the latest Asha models “smartphones”, their category is debatable since the included S40 operating system is rather designed for feature phones such as the recently reviewed Nokia 112.

Some of the compared models, such as the 305, 306, and 311, are already available on select markets, while the rest of them is expected to arrive during the fourth quarter of this year.
