Good: Touchscreen on a low budget
Bad: Text messaging on this phone is a nightmare.
Comment: The Nokia Asha 306 is a good little phone if you're after a touch screen phone on a budget.
Image results from the phones built-in camera isn't too bad just don't expect to produce great images from it. Web browsing is a little slow but not as slow as some other reviews have made it out to be.
Browsing the menus isn't great though and you may sometimes select the wrong option or call the wrong person by mistake. Browsing the phonebook for the contact you want isn't great either as you have to hold and swipe to get to the contact you need.
If you plan to send text messages on this phone buy a stylus as it took me ages to write a short text message. This phone isn't very responsive to being held sideways for text messaging so it takes about 15 seconds for the phone to register that it's on its side.
Overall it's not too bad for a budget phone but if you want to have a phone that is responsive to your fingers and when it is turned, try another brand.
