    Jump to- Positioning Inside the Box Specifications Design and Build Quality Controls and Ports Display Hardware and Performance Software Applications Connectivity Camera Multimedia Battery Life Verdict Even though Nokia has been toppled by Samsung from its leadership position, Nokia is still expanding its range of devices.

    A nice little phone that looks fresh both on the inside and outside. That`s what we took from our first encounter with the Nokia Asha 501 and we do hope we managed to get that point across. You know, with phones that go a dime a dozen, you always risk making it sound like a condescending pat on the head. The Asha 501 is better than that. Yes, it`s an entry-level package. A cheap, dual-SIM phone that fits the Asha description to a T. Yet, it`s a f...

    Verdict: Nokia Asha 501 is a great reboot of an already widely popular lineup. The no-nonsense Asha phones have built a reputation for offering great features at an amazingly cheap price, but until now it really lacked in the "fun to use" department. The grea...

    Nokia has been known to come out with solid, sturdy devices rather than flashy, glitzy ones when it comes to its budget phones. However, we think that the Nokia Asha 501 is here to change that and reveals the brand`s playful side in the feature phone segment. The much hyped Nokia Asha 501 has finally made it to the Indian market. But does it live up to expectations? We take a close look. At a time when phones seem to be getting bigger, the Nokia ...

    Nokia may be touting its Lumia range with as much gusto as possible, but the company was once known for spitting out plenty of budget-friendly feature phones back in the day. From the lowly days of the Nokia 3210 to the Nokia Communicator, there was a phone for everyone’s tastes and budget. But while the Lumia series certainly has its strong points, Nokia’s lesser-known Asha series also deserves a bit of attention. This week I playe...
