Five, 06 Jul 2013Impressive Indeed! i m willing to buy this phn. Does this phn supports minimizing the apps. And return to home screen. While the apps. Is running on other side?
Not Complete My Expectations.
As not fast as we see in videos.
Sound quality in headphone brilliant but loudspeaker not so loud.
Setting option/menu copy of Android 4.0(tipo).
Fastlane is not like multi-tasking.
Switch off phone receive copy from lumia.
At least i can say it is a good but not the best in this budject.
New Ui is Mix Of Android+Windows+S40=Nokia Asha Ui 1.0.
Not Happy with This.
Yash, 05 Jul 2013does whatsaap work on nokia 501??nokia asha 501 is good mobile
First full charge battery update:
After 42 hrs since my first full charge (on 4th July 11 pm) the battery is now 50% using games/calls/wifi and some usual fiddling around the phone.
tripranav, 05 Jul 2013I got the phone on 3rd July at around 3pm and since then (without charging my phone at all) I ... morethis is the reason why I use asha 501 as my main phone and my lumia 820 as a media player a la iPod. instead of finding the charger every time I am back from work, I can simply put the asha on my desk and my lumia on the charging stand. I just need to charge the asha around once in 2 days, very convenient.
sumanta, 06 Jul 2013Guys i m willing to buy this phn. Does this phn supports minimizing the apps. And return to ho... moreMinimizing the apps or returning to the home screen works this way on this phone: So you open an app, you can either -
1) Press the hardware back button to return to the home screen.
2) Swipe left or right from the either edges of the screen to return to the home screen.
So to answer your question, yes we can easily return back to the home screen from an app but I am afraid that closes the app as well.
Although I haven`t tested all the apps to check which ones run in the background but till now only the music/radio app run in the background.
pinki, 06 Jul 2013how is battery after single charge and using internet?
is whatsapp and viber compatible?I am currently testing the battery life. I fully charged my phone on 4th July at 11pm and since then I am still on my first full charge (today is 6th July 4:30 pm) using games/calls/wifi and some usual fiddling around the phone.
About whatsapp and viber it is currently not supported. Although Nokia has said whatsapp will arrive soon on the 501 in couple of months.
shams569, 06 Jul 2013this phone looks awesome and features are also good but i get dissappointed by not having 3G ... moreYes but this phone comes with Nokia Xpress browser which uses proxies to browse, which can improve speeds greatly and reduce data costs. Its very good so dont mind about 3G.
this phone looks awesome and features are also good but i get dissappointed by not having 3G connectivity. now days there is no use of smart phone without 3G feature. Now i am waiting for the updated version with 3g connectivity of this phone.

Hey guys can i get a help about how to download/install chatting apps like whatsapp or wechat?
I think this phone dosent supports these apps and however line messenger says that it will be soon available..
Got nokia 501 y'day.. So far my experience has not been great. This is a "feature phone" n may be i expected little more than that. Phone restarts again n again while playing .avi video file of more than 160mb file size, its frustrating..
N browser is also not able to download file whose size is more than 150 mb - Pops up message "file size too large".
And there are no good chat apps available as of now like whatsapp, ebuddy, line etc...
I sold spice mi 425 to buy this but...i m now regretting on my decision. It is just a feature phone, dont expect smartphone capabilities as i did.
Its good for those requiring only basic features like calling, messaging, playing dumb games etc, others stay away !!
