Previously i had a Samsung Galaxy Y and it was so laggy, most of the apps in the play store was spitful and lacked quality so i decided to back to Nokia. Bought this phone a week ago and the only thing i have to say, this is the best phone i have ever used. The user experiene is amazing.
Great build quality.
UI is classy and modern.
Awesome sound quality.
Very nice screen.
Battery lasts 30 days on standy, 3 days on playing music for 17 hours.
Internet browsing is damn good.
No lag or heating issue.
Very easy to use.
Easy to text with the virtual keyboard.
Less quantity of apps compared to Android but i found all the major games and apps i use on my phone.
This is a very good mobile phone. If you're thinking of buying one, go get it without a second thought.
Sent from Nokia Asha 201. Happy Nokia Asha 201.

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.
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
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........

> In reply to Kevindatsun @ 2013-07-22 14:05 from vaQI - click to readIt depends on requirements.
1) don't want features like sending messages to multiple contacts at a time
2) don't want 3G
3) features available before the year 1997
4) don't want call recording facility
5) don't want high availability of apps
6) But want to spend around $95 (INR 5000/-)
Then they can choose NOKIA 501.

samsung galaxy star is pure crap!!!! dont buy it!!
don't be tempted that it has android.. android os is laggy... asha os 1.0 is new but the ui is so smooth even the softest touch it will respond.. ( personal experience )

Very good phone. I bought single sim Asha 501 because its standby time is double time longer than the dual sim variant. Futhermore phone is light weight and solid build. I am satisfied with Nokia Asha 501 features. .my email works fine with this phone but i prefere to use Line more than Gmail. It is my primary phone now but i dream to see Asha tablet and Asha high end phone in the nearest future :)
