sandeep, 09 Jul 2013it has whats app brotheroh is it ?? good
am unable to download whatsapp can u please suggest me
and also how to set gprs settings manually
does n501 supports high quality full mp4 movies?? E.g., about size of 350 mb
Things which i like and dont like in nokia 501-
1. Good battery backup
2. Nice design
3. New UI
4. Speaker sound
1. Feature phone
2. Lack of popular apps
3. Cant play large video files
4. Small screen size
5. Poor quality games
6. Less RAM
overall its a good phone for basic needs. If u expect more than that, it will surely disappoint u.
Sumit, 09 Jul 2013(only uc browser there u cn do this ) example: for gmail> open google with classic view and... moreI am not taking about opening Gmail.i am able to open my office mail in browser.i want an app which can open office mails rather than in browser.
Guys better add a little more money to ur budget n go for LG OPTIMUS L3 II instead of this feature phone. Though i m a big fan of nokia, This phone failed to impress me. I used it for a week. It has nothing good to offer except battery Backup. I exchanged it with another device by adding a little more money.
For basic needs its a great device bcoz of its battery backup n smooth operation. But if u want more than basic features in a phone, do consider other option. Else u might regret later as i did.
IT IS JUST A FEATURE PHONE...THOUGH NOKIA N NOKIA FANS ARE PROJECTING IT AS A SMARTPHONE !!!
now m gona buy sony xperia sp...bcz of whts app,....bt i defintly buy nokia asha 501 when all apps available for this smart looking phone :)

Matt Darlong, 09 Jul 2013I'm still confused whether i should go for this phn or Samsung Galaxy Star s5282. Although i'm... moreI recommend samsung star. Though im big fan of nokia, i feel that asha 501 is pathetic. In addition, you dont have much apps for this platform. Performance is not up to the mark.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2013a good phone but no whatsapp.........why?????it has whats app brother
To all those who are considering this handset:
I have been using this handset since last 4 days..
I also own a lumia 920, nokia n8 and galaxy note 2 which now I am using as a tablet without sim..
I wanted a phone which looks good in hand, makes call reliably and has essential smartphone features like Facebook, Twitter and whatsapp. And nokia Asha 501 is just that..
Now to clear some doubts....
The design is awsome, fits comfortably in hand.. The colours are headturner..
The interface is pretty smooth inspite of just 64 mb ram. No lags at all moving through the interface. .
The concept of Fastlane is intuitive.
YouTube videos run smoothly through the nokia browser, no hiccups.(also over wifi)
Music player is good
Whatsapp is currently not available but will be supported later on, as told by nokia.
All in all I am loving it..
No android phone can match it in this price range..
