I've bought the last 8 hours with my new Nokia Asha 501 and the experience has been...unexpectedly good.nnPros: Tons of interesting applicationsn Great for fans of mobile gamingn Sleek UIn Responsive touchscreenn Minimal designn Can handle multiple tasksn Innovative take on mobile staples (Alarm Clock, Notes etc.)n Cool Bluetooth sharing methodnnCons: Screen size is a tad small for my tasten The Fastlane feature is great but I managed to swipe my way to the home screenn several times during gamesn Camera (3.2 mp) is nothing to write home aboutn For those who are curious - no, Whatsapp isn't supportedn The cheap plastic build looksn Learning curve is a bit steep for mobile novicesn Earphones are red, irrespective of model color (so, if you prefer your accessoriesn to match your phone, be prepared to shell out extra cash)nnOverall, 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.nnP.S. - I bought the white model. Green isn't available in India, I suppose, and the yellow and red
