Overall: 5 mega pixel camera with flash is just a trap!!nBe careful, do not buy this phone.nnIt has a major bug in WhatsApp which Nokia also cannot fix easily. How could Nokia release such a product??nn5megapixel camera is of no use if you cannot do WhatsApp?nWhatsApp is a recent introduction in the Asha series and looks like Nokia did not do proper QA and simply released these phones. I purchased this phone and from the day one I have been facing sluggish preformance with WhatsApp.nAfter a week I am unable to see pictures in WhatsApp, there is a memory error which does not go after restarting the phone.nnI purchased this from UniverCel and they were smart enough to push me to Nokia Care who are pretty careless.nThe technician in Nokia Care did not know how to take backup of Contacts on this phone and said she took all the backup from the SD Card leaving the contacts on the phone.nThey care a damn! whether you have another phone to make important calls, after a 2 days they tell that they will give me another alternate phone in which I cannot put my micro SIM cards.nnAfter testing for the whole day, Nokia Care says it is a software issue and they are trying to reinstall the software but the phone does not accept the update. nSo that clearly shows the phone has a major bug.nMy question is why was it released if it cannot handle WhatsApp?nThere are so many other applications on this phone and just imagine if all of them are enable what will be the state of this phone.nnNokia Care, after you know that it is a one week old phone and it has a major issue, you say that you will send it to factory and fix it. I am totally disappointed with the service. Even if you replace it with a new one, I am doubtful whether that will work, because I don't see any new update for the software and this might effect all the phones of this model.nnPeople if you want to use WhatsApp on Nokia Asha forget that, you can just use it for calling but for that the price you pay is very high.
