Released at the same time as its even lower-priced cousin, the 306, Nokia's Asha 311 is another low-cost, few-frills workhorse feature phone that aims to cover the basics and little else, with 3G, Wi-Fi and a 3.2 megapixel camera, but no smartphone flexibility. Design It has a more standard look than the 306, with its gently curved edges and rounded back.

It also has the same 3.5mm headphone jack, micro power/sync port and Nokia charging port on top, with volume rocker and screen lock button on the side, but this time round there's no side-loading microSD slot -- you'll need to slide off the back and remove the battery to get at it. Like the 306 though it comes with a 2GB memory card as standard to support the 256MB of onboard memory and you can insert your own up to 32GB. The three-inch touchscreen is an improvement over the 306, not because it has a higher resolution (they both offer a rather paltry 400x240 pixels) but because it's capacitive rather than resistive -- so it's much more sensitive to your brushes and presses, making it a considerably less frustrating phone to use.

Software and features
The operating system is the Series 40 Nokia OS with Full Touch implementation, which effectively looks like a cross between Symbian and Android. It's nice and easy to find your way around using the scrollable icon-based menu which forms the home screen. You can also brush to the left for a choice of dialler, music player or FM radio, or to the right for up to 16 programmable shortcuts. These include the Social app, which offers access to your Facebook, Flickr and Twitter feeds. You can also brush down from the top of the page for a notification bar with more shortcuts to make a call, play music or write a message.

It has the same 1GHz processor as the Asha 306, but delivers a beefier performance thanks to its 128MB RAM (the 306 has just 32MB). It's noticeably faster in use, and the Wi-Fi is slightly different too, with the addition of the faster 802.11n to the 306's b and g. It's nice to see that it has 3G network connectivity too -- much better for accessing the internet on the move than the 306's bog-standard GPRS though there's still no GPS. Nokia Maps is on board, but it uses network triangulation to track your position, which is both less accurate and slower. You can use it to plot journeys up to 10km but Android handsets at this price point such as the Huawei Ascend G300 can do better.

Like the 306 it comes with EA Games Gift -- which allows you to download 40 (admittedly fairly basic) EA games for free within 60 days of buying the handset. It also has Angry Birds as standard. The 3.2-megapixel camera improves on the 306's underwhelming 2-megapixel number but there's still no flash and it's fixed focus, with unimpressive picture quality. Battery life held up well though, delivering comfortably over two days of use.
