johnhelix, 26 Oct 2013what do u mean by Q4????? will it be available in the Philippines this coming November????????End of december they say.
My suggestion to those Nokia Asha 501 users.
Pawn or sale your Asha 501 and add enough amount to buy asha 503.
Just my suggestion, don't angry with me. No hard feeling, peace all.
very beautiful mobile but lack of front camera which is very needed in skype
I have Asha 501 and this phone totly like it. very bad phone so dont buy it.
This phone does not support storing pdf files. Is there any app that can solve this problem?
But it has only 64MB Ram !!! How come?.. No doubt phone feature is awsome but RAM... :( will it be ok??
very nice mobile................ everything is nice in this in this mobile.
what do u mean by Q4????? will it be available in the Philippines this coming November????????
It has 128 MB of RAM.
check all the detailed features here:
128 mb ram to nokia 503??? really excited to own this model soon, as i just love the new asha platform os nokia introduced with nokia 501....the increase in the ram means smooth performance....
all specifications are good but one thing is 3G video calling is not there
i really welcome the addition of 3g, gorilla glass screen, 5mpx camera with flash but dissapointed by 64mb ram. they should have atleast put 128 mb ram for 503 as its a 3 g phone.
nokia 501 sometimes really becomes sluggish and i thought atleast they will learn the mistake and tweak the new phones a little bit by the addition of more ram, but really dissappointed....as all the 3 phones have only 64 mb ram like nokia 501.
a bigger screen, same OS and GPS service would make this phone my favorite
dying to buy this phone bcoz of gorrila glass protection at 100 dollar price point. good job nokia
The Asha 503 certainly promises a lot -- superb build qualiity and a very capable S40 OS, for its intended audience.
If S40 had offered wifi hotspot and smart dialling facilities, it would have easily been my favourite OS for a Nokia phone.
After all, the S40 OS offers all the basic features that I need in a phone:
2. Text messages
3. Social chat apps (whatsapp, line, we chat)
4. Internet browsing
11. Voice memo
12. Music player
Now, why cant Nokia provide a bigger screen for the Asha 503? Or even, the similar specifications of a Lumia 520, but merely changing the OS from Microsoft to S40. That simple and practical OS alone would bring down the price of the S40 "Asha 520" in comparison with the MS Lumia 520.
This dual approach will only benefit Nokia, as most people I know of, presently buy a Nokia phone for its build quality and only a few have bought them for the OS.
I feel that Nokia should encourage competition from within its brand, as it will ensure that people are still buying Nokia products, irrespective of the model or OS.
As Steve Jobs is reported to have said: “If you don’t cannibalize yourself, someone else will.” And in the words of Walter Isaacson from Steve’s Biography “So even though an iPhone might cannibalize sales of an iPod, or an iPad might cannibilize sales of a laptop, that did not deter him”.
Nokia is, I believe, in a unique position as it has two operating systems, Windows and S40. Selling either of these OSs in various permutations and hardware should not worry Nokia, since it will offer something different to the customer. For example, what should stop Nokia from selling a 5" Lumia 1320, but with an S40 OS?
Personally, I like the limited multitasking facility of a tried and tested S40 OS, coupled with the hardware of a Lumia. Limited multitasking ensures that there are no unnecessary apps running in the background and hogging valuable RAM.
