Connectivity and autonomy

The connections are the most important section of this comparison and are the point that really makes the difference between these two devices. We started with the Nokia Asha 210, this model can be connected to the Internet via GPRS EDGE networks , which offer a maximum speed of 236 Kbps However we can enjoy a much more fluid navigation when we’re at home or the office because it has a port Wi-Fi wireless.

The Nokia Asha 205 does not have Wi-Fi and the only way to connect is through the network GPRS , therefore also has no GPS positioning system, a detail which is present in the current model. Nokia knows that 236 Kbps is a fairly slow speed and therefore have made ​​significant improvements to the browser Nokia Express. thing it compresses web pages by up to 90% so we can see any web quickly without waiting. The two have a wireless port Bluetooth , two SIM card slot , connector for headphones and a ticket to the owner of Nokia charger. Finally we note that the Nokia Asha 210 has MicroUSB port for data transfer.

Autonomy is not a problem on mobile phones as simple as these because they have large screens or broad profile connections to drain the battery quickly. The Nokia Asha 205 has a battery of 1,020 milliamps with which we can be talking about eleven hours and endure burning 25 days if the terminal is idle. The Nokia Asha 210 carrying a stack of 1,200 milliamperes in use and time amounts to 12 hours , while at rest is between 46 and 24 days depending on whether we have one or two SIM cards inserted.

Clearly, the Nokia Asha 210 is an upgraded version of the Nokia Asha 205, especially in the section on connections. The terminal Nokia just introduced has free Wi-Fi, a very important detail that helps us navigate smoothly and save mobile data step. Also highlighted in the section of the camera , which has two-megapixel sensor compared with 0.3 megapixels of his opponent. Otherwise they are pretty evenly matched , two mobiles are targeting young people who often access social networks and using messaging services, hence with a full keyboard. Differences in favor of Nokia Asha 210 is reflected in the price, this model will cost 80 euros while the Nokia Asha 205 and can be purchased for just over 50 euros.
