Verdict

Go for the ASUS A501CG if you are looking for a big 5-inch smartphone that can deal with powerful activities smoothly. It boasts of Intel Atom processor and 2GB RAM for this purpose. However, it runs on dated Jelly Bean OS which is very disappointing.

Powerful smartphone
Display and Configuration

The ASUS A501CG-2A508WWE/2B509WWE flaunts a 5-inch IPS LCD multi touch display with HD resolution and a pixel density of 294ppi. Covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.0, it resists scratches and fingerprints easily.

It is driven by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor sitting on Intel Atom Z2520 processor. Together with 2GB RAM and PowerVR SGX 544MP2, the smartphone has the ability to make light of anything you throw at it. It sails on dated Android v4.3 Jelly Bean OS.

Camera and Storage

The ASUS A501CG houses an 8MP autofocus camera at the back which supports LED flash and geo-tagging and can record 1,080p videos at 30fps. It also has a 2MP front facing camera on board. It has an internal memory of 8GB which is further expandable up to 32GB.

Battery and Connectivity

The ASUS A501CG packs a sealed 2,100mAh Li-Po battery which claims to provide up to 18 hours of talktime and up to 353 hours of standby time over 3G. Connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS/A-GPS, GLONASS, USB port and Bluetooth.

Poor market strategy and poor customer care
05 Aug 2014 By Shain Thomas On flipkart.com

I have been looking up for 8 GB version since last 20 days and its still unavailable while 16 GB is available all the time. I guess its just a strategy to sell 16 GB version more because both the phone have same features except of memory at the cost diffrence of 3000 bucks.nIt is very much Disappointing.Such a big customer oriented company you should not act up on like this.You are creating big advertisements this fone is blaa blaaaa blaa and at end of the time availability is nill.What is this ? You are giving a wrong message to the customers.If the stock is not there up to the market needs you should not give the advertisement,people will select some other brand and let them relax.This is like gambling.why some fones are selling @ premium rates?One of my friend got 8gb phone yesterday night.You people are cheating us.Ur strategy everybody knows.Even i tried ur cc yesterday night but no use ,Keep on giving the message that ur in a que or ur call is more important to us so please be on line .How long we can wait for the silly thing.Not only that in SO be straight and honest in terms of Advertisements.

Broken Display with a fall from a height of 3 FEET.
23 Dec 2014 By kartik raja On flipkart.com

Dear Friends,nnRecommended Only for persons who can handle it with CARE. Here is my story.. nnThe Mobile worked satisfactorily as per the specifications except the Battery Life but I am more concerned with the Gorilla Glass. I just dropped the mobile from a height of about 3 feet and when I picked up my phone, I was shocked to see my glass broken on the first fall itself. nnShocked as I was a Samsung user and have dropped my Old phone a multiple times without causing any damage to it.nnBiggest Shock was when I called the Asus Service Center mentioned in the ASUS website to find out that the replacement would cost me an approximate of Rs. 4500. nnI bought this phone for 10,000 and the glass replacement cost is 4500.
