Nokia Asha 311 VS Samsung Galaxy Y. Next billion devices shootout.

“Samsung Galaxy Y” is the device, with which Samsung has posed a big challenge to Nokia’s domination of low-end devices market. It is full touch device running “Android” and Samsung supported this device with catchy ads and it is a big hit in price sensitive markets like India. Nokia has now come back strongly with revelation of full touch Asha devices 305, 306 and 311. We have earlier posted a comparison between the three and Asha 311 is leader of the pack obviously and targeted to get the market back from likes of Samsung Galaxy Y. So, it is very natural that people will compare the two devices. For helping such prospective customers we are putting a comparison between Asha 311 and Samsung Galaxy Y, showing where one has the upper hand  on the other.

Asha 311 is better than Galaxy Y:

  • Better 3G network coverage with five frequencies vs only two frequencies of Galaxy Y. Better download speeds. HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps vs only HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps of Galaxy Y.
  • Better screen resolution (155 ppi vs 133 ppi pixel density). Nokia’s CBD type display with great outdoor visibility.
  • Corning Gorilla glass protection for display.
  • 3.2 MP camera  compared to 2 MP camera of Galaxy Y.
  • 1 Ghz processor clocking speed vs 830 Mhz processor speed of Galaxy Y
  • Swipe OS of Nokia vs Android’s Touchwiz. Swipe makes Asha 311 easier and more stylish to use.
  • USB on the go support.

Galaxy Y is better than Asha 311:

  • Wifi hotspot functionality.
  • 11.5 mm thickness vs 12.9 mm thickness of Asha 311.
  • 180 MB, 290 MB user available RAM vs 140 MB, 256 MB ROM, 128 MB RAM

So here we can see that Galaxy Y is slightly thinner than Asha 311 and also wifi hotspot functionality is missing from Asha 311 for now. But Asha 311 beats Galaxy Y in many vital aspects like better download speeds, better processor speed, display quality, outdoor visibility, screen protection with gorilla glass and better camera. Which means a faster and quicker device with better display, outdoor visibility and better protection. Also camera wise there is huge difference in quality. Now combine this with “Swipe OS” borrowed from Nokia N9 and ease of usability and style kicks in. Obviously Nokia has a winner on their hand!!

 Now, what is needed from Nokia is timely device release and advertisement support, so that it reaches to market and to minds of customer as soon as possible.

    Hahaha…!! Its a big foolish to compare s40v phone to an android.
    Android means “Freedom”. You just have to know how to modify it. Currently I’m using Galaxy Y & I’ve rooted my phone ie. jailbreaking, I’ve flashed custom roms, many of em, overclocked my phone to 900mhz, u can also overclock it to 1.2Ghz. I’ve done partition sd card & my internal memory is like kind off 900mb or so, I’ve also done swap partition and my ram is 512mb. Can you do all this with your Asha huh??? Nope you cannot modify your Nokia’s internal system ewww..!!! Even I liked Nokia when I was younger, but came to know that Samsung’s much better brand. Finally there is no much needed GPS in Asha for accurate Maps things. Samsung Galaxy Y rockzzz…!!!

    My requirements are good camera upto 3 MP,
    bigger screen upto 3 inch,
    fast download speed,
    document viewing,
    fast processor able to play few bigger games.

    And priced under 7000 INR.

    Seeing the craze of android smartphones I was going to buy HTC explorer which is a low budget phone.

    But i changed my desicion to Nokia asha 311 .
    I think it will be very good phone for me who hasn’t used smartphones.

  • krishna

    samsung gelaxy y have quality touch
    but asha 311 donot have it

  • Spider

    lolzz… there can be no comparison between a modern ANDROID phone and Adam & Eve’s S40 phone. 311 is big flop and that too before its launch. Samsung and HTC ( even local players like Fly, Micromax, Spice) are kicking the nokia’s ass very hard…. :-j

    • Android lags even on quad-cores 1.5 Ghz processors. So phones like Galaxy Y which have single core and 830 Mhz processors just are pathetic to use.I have seen many of the usres running to Samsung customer care only after few days of owning one due to one issue or other. S40 used on Asha 311 is S40+swipe, stable and optimised with many cool features and usable UI. about 311 being flop. wiat and watch!!

      • qunow

        Although potentially laggy,at least features can be used on those low-end android. Wouldn’t that be better than completely impossible to use these? for example, those android apps.

      @spider Nice trolling spider-san

      android sucks and its sucks big time..visit the samsing service center someday and u will come to know the difference between quality of the phones by nokia and samsung. samsung makes the worst phones in the world.have already used many samsung phones and finally back to nokia. samsung is a shit. even a person with a very low IQ knows that nokia is better than samsung.and as far as android is concerned it lags on quad core, aphone that costs 35k, so u pay 35k so u get experince full of crasshes and lags.Nokia rules and will rule, try the lumia series and u will come to know what UI actually means, its the most beautiful user interface ever and u can eat on that.The S40+swipe is much better than earlier version of s40. why dount u look at samsungs proprietor OS. a useles spiece of software. S40+swipe beats all the low specs android handsets.
