Nokia Asha 302

RH Numbers

Nokia's latest edition to its budget Asha range snazzes things up to look much more akin to the business grade E-series with a build quality that instantly makes a positive impression. It features a bright 2.4in 320x240-pixel screen and runs Symbian with a revised S40 interface, which I didn't really take to personally, but it is a definite improvement.

The keyboard has a spongy, typical Nokia rubbery squeak, yet it's comfortable to grip and use one-handed too. For basic text and e-mail though, it does the job pretty well and, given its price, it won't be short of takers.

Samsung Galaxy Pro Y

RH Numbers

Samsung's styling is somewhat basic but the plastic build is robust enough. It's 2.6in touchscreen display has a 320x240 resolution but it's not the sharpest at this size. Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it's spruced up with Samsung's TouchWiz interface. The navigation is smooth, with only minimal delays when jumping between apps.

The keyboard certainly satisfies though, with nicely rounded keys that click comfortingly and make light work of e-mails and texts. There's nothing too challenging with the Samsung Galaxy Y Pro which, apart from its lackustre display should appeal to all but the most demanding Qwerty typist.
