The full featured great file browser makes the S40 user interface much more smarter and makes it somewhat similar to iOS and Windows phone this app is named as Files and it lists down all the local folders with the memory card on top.
The phone is also blessed with a functional gallery and photo editor, though the image gallery is somewhat a Symbian copycat but it does its function quite well. Organizing and editing pictures are also easy. The available options are crop, rotate, flip, effects, warp, add frame, clip art, add text, adjust brightness and contrast, retune colors or do auto enhance.
Talking about the music player, do not expect anything extraordinary as the interface is quite basic with some hidden options to explore. The music player supports background playback, but there are no quick controls in the notification area or the lock screen.
The Asha 308 also boasts a neat and simple interface for the FM radio and you can change stations with the dedicated controls at the bottom. There is a tab with all available stations.
The audio quality is of mediocre level with no resistance applied to its line-out. Though, the phone audio quality overall is quite good but its frequency response is somewhat poor.
The Asha 308 comes with a 2 mega pixels fixed focus camera that produces average quality images with a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200. This clearly suggests that the Asha 308 camera is good enough for the occasional use and it is not meant for the demanding applications. The camera user interface is also very pleasing and easy to use. The phone offers you settings, camcorder or still camera toggle as well as a shortcut to the gallery. Meanwhile, the virtual shutter is always placed centered at the bottom.
From the Settings, users can change effects, self-timer, grid and scenes and can also go into the deeper Advanced settings menu if he wants to change resolution options, camera sounds, orientation, and so on. Moreover, with the help of “Funny Sounds” feature of Asha 308, you can make your subject to laugh as it plays one of the several preset funny sounds just before taking a picture.
