I've bought the last 8 hours with my new Nokia Asha 501 and the experience has been...unexpectedly good.
Pros: Tons of interesting applications
Great for fans of mobile gaming
Can handle multiple tasks
Innovative take on mobile staples (Alarm Clock, Notes etc.)
Cool Bluetooth sharing method
Cons: Screen size is a tad small for my taste
The Fastlane feature is great but I managed to swipe my way to the home screen
several times during games
Camera (3.2 mp) is nothing to write home about
For those who are curious - no, Whatsapp isn't supported
The cheap plastic build looks
Learning curve is a bit steep for mobile novices
Earphones are red, irrespective of model color (so, if you prefer your accessories
to match your phone, be prepared to shell out extra cash)
Overall, I must say that this phone is one of the best that Nokia has produced in the 5k range. Some people will find points gripe about, no doubt, because the phone has enough loopholes but it also provides you with maximum value for your buck.
P.S. - I bought the white model. Green isn't available in India, I suppose, and the yellow and red
Let me tell you all something. not everybody needs a high end smartphone, it depends upon their liking and their pocket :P. Nokia cares about their customers !
now, you have to admire what nokia is doing here, they have introduced such a simple yet a trendy and well built product ( of course, nokia is meant for quality ! ).
Nokia Asha 501 is a phone meant for students who need to be in touch all the time and who also can't afford the high end smart phones like the iphone or galaxy s4 etc.
you seriously need to appreciate nokia when it comes to phones with good features and excellent quality, which is the new upcoming asha series.
it's amazing how they have used lumia's colors and designed it like a n9.
features are remarkable.
1. it has a very good responsive touch screen.
2. amazing new feature called as Fast lane, where you can swipe through apps instantly
3. it comes with dual sim (Easy Swap feature), for those who need more than one !
4. it's wifi capable
5. Nokia Xpress Browser is light on data, but it still gives you the full browsing experience.
6. Answer calls, switch between applications, reply to messages and get around your phone quickly with a simple swipe.
7. a good 3.2 mp camera !
8. different colors and interchangeable back panels
9. nokia has provided Red colored ear phones in the box.
it's only Rs.5199 ! and it was made for the Indian market.
Just don't think ! go ahead and buy it !
I bought this mobile for me, but after using this i was really amazed with its responsive touch and performance,every features is uniquely cool,specially easy access of everything at this price range,though the cam quality is not upto expectations but its definitely better than any other 3 mp mobiles at this range.
my point :
- Responsive touch,
- Extremely good battery run time,
- No more series 40
- New Asha Touch UI
- New Fast Lane
- Duel SIM
- Smart design,
- Camera better than equivalent htc or samsung 3 MP,
- 4 GB memory card included (not mentioned in specifications here),
- 1Ghz Processor
so if u expect a mobile with tons of features at low price range
- low Screen Resolution 240x320 .
- No 3G network Support.
- no A-GPS. (who cares) look at the price ;)
than android or whatever i'd suggest u go for New Nokia Asha 501, i am sure u wont regret..
I bought this phone yesterday from local mobile store shop. There price was low than flipkart's price. I paid 5150 rupees for this product & there was an offer to extend warranty period for an year by paying extra 100 rupees.
1. The phone contains 50 preloaded apps & 40 free EA Sports games.
2. A 4gb microsd memory card is included with the phone.
3. Good battery backup.
4. Good camera quality.
5. Responsive touch
6. Great design, & the handset is not very big in size like other smart phones.
7. There is an only back button. There is no necessity to use it frequently. You can do everything by swapping.
8. Wifi & bluethooth transfer speed is very good.
9. The phone support Nokia Maps, the maps application is not given. But you can download it from OVI store & it works nicely.
10. Different colors and interchangeable back panels.
11. Nokia Express browser is quite good & it saves upto 90% of your browsing data.
12. YouTube works nicely.
13. You need not require any configuration setting from your operator. Just put your sims & switch on the phone & start browsing.
1. Both sims are micro sims.
2. It only supports videos upto 240p.
3. Red colour headset & quality of sound coming through it good but not the best.
4. Whatsapp is not available, but it will be available in next 1 month in its upgradation.
5. No 3g network.
6. No A-GPS.
7. Processing speed is little bit slow as compared to the other phones having 1 GHZ processor.
In overall, Nokia is giving lots of facilities in 5k Range. So this phone will be a decent purchase
