Since the update to 1.4 from 1.1 is better after hundreds of mail on nokia care, but fonts have not been bigger from small to larger. Overall resolution is twenty yrs bck. its gross money savings than nothing, Nokia heard still years to use nokia name, then MS will prevail, death of Nokia.

My mom is using the phone for last 2 months.. Once u charge the battery, it will fight for you atleast one and a half day... But the 5MP camera is the worst thing in it.... worse than a VGA quality....

Since Intro of X, it has been forgotten ad junk, no upgrades nor apps built up nor plarform upgraded. It the most dwngraded cell available, Nokia dont forget's us as we have paid 120$ most of it has gone to u. Pls upgrade 12.6.6 to 9 which is on ur site.
dual sim as third option will carry on. withdraw the stocks

Asha 503 duo, has better specs than X, no flash 3 mp cam except sizr bigger, but price 20% higher. 265k is an obsolete resolution, but its relevance is finished after X release, ad charm is finished. Please its price shud be 50$ now! nothing much to boost abt. Now an update has becom more thzn necessary.

Its a mess I am n, asha platform shud be 1.2 as mentioned but almost everyone had 1.1.1. This gvrs an opportunity to broad fonts cut copy paste must from internet.
Its dumbness is evident, its now lost forgotten after astroid X Series launched. Same price

Got the yellow model recently.
The phone is an absolute beauty. I did not know whether to buy it or not until I got my hands on one in a shop and I was hooked. I was as impressed with the feel of the phone as I was when I first touched a Nokia N9/Lumia 800, each in its own category, ofcourse. The slightly curved screen glass and the glazed case give it a premium feel.

A big plus over Windows Phone is the damn thing can ring AND vibrate at the same time, like all Nokia phones did since ever before Windows Phone appeared.

But, compared to previous Nokia dumbphones, this phone is plain dumber because it has no system wide copy-paste option.
This and the e-mail app that can't display html mails ruin all the marketing that presents this phone as a "smartphone".

The WiFi is weak and you must be pretty close to the router to get a strong enough signal to be usable.

The apps are very few at the moment and not that useful except Opera browser.
The preinstalled games require registration via SMS and need an Internet connection to work.

The glance screen is awesome, the notifications are awesome, having a proximity sensor to close the screen during phone calls is totally awesome.
The double tap to wake the screen is so bad it's close to unusable, so I disabled it.

All in all, the phone is a dumber phone than the ones before it, but with awesome glance screen and notifications.
If you KNOW you don't need a smartphone, you'll totally like this phone.
But I, for one, would definitely not give up on my Lumia 720 for the Asha 503.

I am using fr 3 months, its basic all n one fone. wifi radio flash store etc but of course wth limitations. only fonts need to be bold ad ppi at least 150. Most important update to 1.2 platform is must, or evrn upgrade max can sustain. Asha was a button fone platform now has been shifted to touch tech. Nokia has last oppertunity to leave trade mark as a leader in the west!
