I am using this NOKIA ASHA 501(Black) from 16th July. I am very happy with the performance. Here are my some good and bad experience with the phone.

GOOD >>>>>
1] Good UI
2] Responsive screen
3] I can type the text comfortably
4] No lagging at all
5] FASTLANE is superb. I can change the song, even when I am not in the Music Player(by locking the screen and then pressing previous-forward button)
6] I can close the running apps directly by swiping left/right without any problem
7] I can scroll my contacts list easily though there are more than 300 contacts
8] Camera quality is better than my previous NOKIA 2690 and NOKIA C2-03
9] Looks like one of the member of LUMIA family
10] Impressive design
11] Easily fits in my hand. I adjust it such that bottom screen stands on my small finger, there are two fingers on the back and second finger for holding the top and thumbs for typing
12] The most important feature, Best Battery Backup
13] Superb internet speed


BAD >>>>>>>
1] YOU TUBE Videos are not so impressive
2] Not supported popular apps (till today, not confirmed about later)
3] No marking options
4] Can't move the contacts directly. First we have to copy contacts and then delete the unwanted contacts. It's too difficult


After all, it's a very good and affordable phone whose budget is $100


NOKIA YOU ALWAYS ROCKSSSSS........

Dude ths file goes illegaly in storage..
means if ur file is .wmv then system not recognise it properly coz music file also have ths extention so system consider it as music file n it stores in music hub..
understand

Dude ms also knws desktop windows is unsecure. but to make changes for desktop is very expensive n also hard n lot of time required for that..
n desktop os is already fully developed.. so to make change on it is bad idea..

bt ms working on mobile platform nw n they make everythng frm starting n fresh.. so security is main n 1st point here for them. so they implement ths.

can u get my point.
Desktop is already famous n matured so they dnt want change it fast.
bt mobile platform is just starting so they can apply these thngs

Can u trust on me or any1 else? tell me.
no na. then what ms doing wrong.. n who told u all apps coming frm trusted Sources. even u n i also make app for wp8. all apps are 3rd party here bt developed under ms restrictions. no any app can access ur personal data here.

n what happens in android. every app access ur whole content thats call hacking man.

Dude
in desktop os ther r two main os in d world
1- windows(unsecure)
2- apple desktop os(fully secure)
here apple is also famous bt ther devices r to expensive.

in mobile
1- android(unsecure)
2- ios(totaly secure)
3- wp8(secure)

here android n ios both are equaly famous.

if u compare then
1- windows desktop=android
2- ios desktop=ios phone=wp8

ther r two facts-
1- only difference is ios is fully developed n mature. wp8 still needs time
2- ios is so expensive n wp8 is less expensive

at starting time android is also facing ths problems. its not only happen with wp8.

1- dude just tell me if u develope any app with full eforts n time then can u make ths free to download?
its comon sence dude Evry developer wants money.. even android app store is also paid at starting time..
2- yes now we use pc to do few thngs. bt gdr3 n wp8.1 is coming. hope ms do somthing.. huge chances.
for sharing file on web use skydrive man.. simple.
whatsapp is also in beta dude. evrythng is working fine nw only music n video sharing option remains.. hope they wl add..
system is restricted coz of high security.
no 1 hacks ur device. like android.. every1 hacks android device..
Dude u r coming late on ths forum.. U buy ths device without research on ths then its ur problem. dnt blame us ok.
personaly i like ths os. lots of thngs r coming soon. also vlc working on media player for wp8.
if u want to shift android then buy sony xperia sp 24k. below ths all all android devices r totaly junk. u also knw that

Dont worry about lack of apps,this is newly developed platform,takes some time for main apps to be introduced,few months atleast.besides the display quality,nokia has outdone rest of the companies by creating the best smartphone in 5K range even including the best android budget phones on same price range,atleast 80-90% popularity among all top mobile sites proves that.on next asha model,it would be good to add more RAM to 256 mb for much smoother animations/multitasking plus atleast above 166 ppi pixels density with 3.2-3.4 inch screen for better video/game playing experiance and optional dual core processor or better graphic processor and decent battery within price bracket of 8.5-9.5K range with same user friendly platform along with well stocked apps market will annhilate every other android phone till 15K range.very good phone with current features and platform and with few improvements it might become the best budget phone around the globe.oh yea forgot to add,try throwing a 5 megapixel camera with flash on upcoming 3g phone and see your market figures going skyhigh.
