The Nokia Asha 306 is the latest addition to the Nokia Series 40 range and comes with a 3-inch touchscreen and uses the Asha Touch user interface. This budget smartphone lite offering has a lot to offer the casual user. Here we check out what’s in the box with our Nokia Asha 306 unboxing review.

The Nokia Asha 306 is very much the entry-level offering compared to the Nokia Asha 311 as it uses the older resistive screen technology rather than the more responsive capacitive of the Nokia Asha 311.

However, there is a considerable price delta between the two and for the asking price of around £80, the Nokia Asha 306 has plenty to offer. The likes of Expansys, Amazon and Play are the places to look.

The Nokia Asha 306 comes in the new compact and sleek box that puts the emphasis on saving packaging being made from recycled cardboard.Inside the box you’ll find the device itself sitting in a top tray. Below this you’ll find the battery, standard 2mm Nokia charger, headphones and user manual.

In terms of design, the Nokia Asha 306 is slightly bigger than the Nokia Asha 311 also released at the same time as its tapered ends make it a fraction longer in the body. That said, it’s the same thickness and measures 12.8mm in depth.

You’ll find a 2-Megapixel camera on the back of the unit and along with WiFi inside, 10MB of storage and micrSD card slot supporting up to 32GB of memory it’s very much an entry-level phone.

The Nokia Asha 306 is powered by Asha Touch, which takes the standard Series 40 operating system and scales it up for a full touchscreen user experience. There are three homescreens and you swipe to move between them. The first is populated with all the apps contained on the Nokia Asha 306, so no need to go rooting around, while the second has been designed so you can add your favourites and most commonly used.

We’ll be checking the Nokia Asha 306 out over the next few days to bring you a full review, but in the meantime if there is anything you need to know about this handset please let us know by leaving a Comment below.
