Nokia Asha 300 is a powerful series 40 phone, featuring the same 1GHz processor and 128MB RAM as the Nokia Asha 303. However, Asha 300 lacks Wi-Fi and QWERTY keyboard and comes with a smaller touch display. One great plus of the Nokia Asha 300 over Asha 303 is its 5 megapixel camera offering better quality still pics than the 3.2 megapixel camera on the Nokia Asha 303. It is a Touch and Type phone, but features a standard 12-key keypad.
A feature phone with power of a Smartphone
Like the Nokia Asha 303, Asha 300 features a 1GHz processor with a 128MB RAM, giving it as much potential as some smartphones in the market today. I expect Series 40 platform on a 1GHz processor to result in a fast and smooth performance.
Nokia Asha 300 comes with support for social media and email. It features a dedicated messaging key for fast and easy access to your message inbox. Accessing tweets Facebook status and emails are also easy. It also comes pre-installed with Angry Birds Lite and with a 1GHz processor more of such games and Apps will be available for the Nokia Asha 300 in the Nokia Ovi Store.
Nokia Asha 300 features the new Nokia browser with its efficient browsing system that saves data usage and cost. The built-in browser compresses web pages on Nokia’s high-speed servers before rendering them on your phone offering a cheaper web access and with a 1GHz processor the browser will offer a fast performance.
Touch Display & a 5MP Camera
Nokia Asha 300 comes with a 2.4-inch resistive touchscreen. Like the Asha 303 the display offers QVGA resolution with 262,00 colours. The response of the touch display should be fast, thanks to the powerful processor.
Nokia Asha 300 also features a 5 megapixels camera with VGA (640 x 480 pixels) video recording. The camera is a modest one with full focus, self timer, and image editor.
