I also wonder about the quality of camera. I use both Nokia E90 (3.2MP) and Asha 501 (3.15MP), but the picture quality of my Nokia E90 is much better.
why u guys are having so much hatred over this phone. its a very good phone. expect less then everything will be alright.
one guy has said lg is better than this....ok go for it if you feels so.
one of the worst comments i read in this forum was from a guy who said that the 1.3mp camera of nokia 206 produces better photos than this phone. well how mean my friend, dont just show your frustration by telling anything you like....206 camera results are very poor compared to this phone.....if you dont like this phone you are free to sell it but dont tell lies.....
Yesterday i bought Nokia asha 501.
Really it's a good. Touch is very capacitive. Wechat, line, ebuddy msgr are working fine.
You prefer Nokia 501 than any other moblies within 5k range.
Worst phone ever released by any phone manufactures. I assume out of 554 votes for this phone came from 2/3 guys who created multiple accounts and voted for it. All Nokia/Sony phones are highly rated here. In reality, they doesn't deserve these ratings. Nokia and Sony are cheating the customers. Nokia anyway is past. Next turn is for Sony. Choose wisely and choose LG products.
I've sold my Asha 501. It has nice design and good battery back up but i am not satisfied with its functions. Phone camera is 3 MP but its not better than my current Nokia 206 which has only 1.3MP !. The other things : Asha 501 is not cheap , lack of LED flash. I cannot use free call via Line app. . .it doesn't support Viber & Whatsapp.
Sorry, i bought this phone but i cannot wait for Whatsapp or Viber that is why i go for another handset :(
