  1. i want to buy it but i m in other country it is in uae

  2. iam using nokia asha 305…it is excellent mobile iam strongly recommended this…itz so cute…and lots of features…with low cost amazing work by nokia…nokia 305 is a strong competitor of other phones………THE MAJOR DRAWBACK IS YOUTUBE STREAMING NOT AVAILABLE IN THIS AMAZING PHONE………….and asha 306 also looking same as 305…but extra option is wi-fi….phone design simply awesome……..but think abt youtube…….

  3. it seems good.r u sure that it can’t support “u tube”?@chandra sekhara

  4. this phone is awesome……. Prise is reasonable features are gud …… But it doesn’t support youtube………. If nokia makes that happen then i’m buying it now

  5. mai asha 306 ko kharidna chahta hu par yaha jharkhand me nahi mil raha.

  6. by the way..im just confused..
    what is the difference between resistive touchscreen and capacitive touchscreen ?…….and witch is better..?

    • Capacitive touch screen: The capacitive touch screen is made up of a glass panel that is coated with a material. The property of this material is that it can store electrical charge. So the capacitive touchscreens basically stores electrical charge. But for good, Human body can also store charge. So, when you touch this screen with your finger, some of these charges on the screen gets transferred to your finger. The oscillator circuits located at the corner of your system will then sense this decrease in the charge on screen and the spot the exact location where touch occurred, and then transfers this specified information to the touchscreen driver software.

      Resistive touch screen: Resistive touch screen, on the other hand is again made up of normal glass panel. However, this glass panel in this case is coated with three layers. Two of these layers being conductive and resistive are kept apart using spacers while the third scratch-resistant layer covers the whole setup When the resistive touch screen system is running, current flows through these layers. On a finger touch, the two layers get connected and change in electrical field occurs. The system calculates the coordinates of point of contact and passes them to touch screen driver software. Now that you understand how Capacitive touch screen and Resistive touch screens work, lets figure out Pros and Cons of each of these touch screens.

  7. can anyone tell me about the sound quality of nokia asha 306???

    • it is pretty normal just like all other smartphones but the one phone in nokia which is loud in sound is E5
