Now, we will have a quick look about the Nokia Asha 202

 

The Nokia Asha 202 comes in their classic Candybar design, which is the standard on most of Nokia’s phones. The Nokia Asha 202 2.4” resistive touchscreen. The resistive touchscreen of the Asha 202 helps you for some unwanted or accidental presses on the screen. It needs more pressure than a captive touchscreen to activate. With the resistive touchscreen of the Asha 202, unwanted presses will not happen. For a better and more accurate results or presses, it advisable for you to use a pointing device since the screen size of the Nokia Asha 202 is small.

The screen resolution of the Nokia Asha 202 is QVGA 320×240 pixel. If you will watch videos frequently, it is not advisable to take the Asha 202 because it is just good for texting and web browsing. If you can stand the low-resolution screen of the Asha 202, then you can just watch some videos but do not expect that you will get clear representation of everything you see in the video.

The Nokia Asha 202 comes with a rear 2MP camera, which is very basic for a phone. We all know that a camera resolution of 2MP is very weak and if you are going to capture a remarkable moment, you might not remember or recognize the background, the faces and clear representation of each image in it. It can also capture a 320x240pixel video that is running at 15fps.

The phone runs on a Series 40Asha Operating system, which is very weak, compared to the smart phone’s operating systems. The only advantage of this operating system is the boot up time. If you are going to take a look the boot up time between a smart phone OS and a Series 40Asha OS or any other non-smartphones, you will see that the non-smartphones boots much faster than the smart phone. There is a lot of disadvantage compared to a non-smart phone, which is obvious if you already used a non-smartphone.

CONS:

  • Low screen resolution
