If you are planning to buy a new phone as a gift to yourself this Christmas, you might want to try this phone from Nokia. On its launching date it was previously priced by the Finnish company at 155 USD (approx. Php 6,665+ if VAT is included). It is powered by 1GHz single core processor similar to Samsung’s Wave 3 that is almost 3 times of Asha 303 price. But unlike the Wave 3, you can enjoy both worlds when using this phone because it is equipped by a QWERTY keyboard as well as a 2.6-inch capacitive touchscreen. By providing dual functionalities in a single phone, previous QWERTY phone user will not go into the hassle of transitioning to a touchscreen phone.
The Nokia Asha 303 was also built for social and internet savvy people. It is pre-installed with Facebook Chat, Whatsapp and the latest Nokia Maps. For your fast internet browsing needs, you can use the cloud-based Nokia Browser that also gives you access to the popular Angry Birds (Lite) game.
The only downside of this phone is that it’s a little short in terms of its internal storage and memory capacity. You only got 170 MB of file storage and only 128 MB of RAM for immediate processing needs by your system. I really don’t know the purpose of the 256 ROM is, but I guess that it was used for the built-in apps. By creating a read-only portion of the memory for built-in apps, accessing and loading the apps will be much faster.
