Nokia Asha 200 Review
Dual-SIM phones released by major makers tend to get positive responses from the emerging markets. Consequently, the Finnish company has a high hope from its Asha phones. The Asha 200 is not only attractive for its amazing pricing; it is also Nokia’s first dual-SIM phone with QWERTY keyboard. The physical keyboard is nicely laid out while providing decent tactile responses to please any messaging junky. The 2.4” display uses the usual 320 x 240 pixels resolution, which offers decent viewing angles. The display quality is decent for the price tag, although there’s no way to adjust the brightness level.
The Asha 200 boasts a simple 2Mp rear-facing camera, microUSB port, charger plug, 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card slot, hot-swappable external SIM card and 1430mAh battery, which allows the phone to stay usable for two days. The S40 Symbian platform is known to require low hardware requirements and usable user interface. It comes with a workable music player app that supports popular audio formats including AAC, WAV, WMA and MP3. The earphone offers reasonably good sound quality, with a decent equalizer panel.
