After reading several reviews, I was skeptical at first to buy the P527. Regardless, I managed to get a great deal at MYR 750 (approx. USD 206) so I bought it anyway.
The Asus P527 is a feature packed phone with an adequate processor at a good price. It's not too sloggish for my taste. I'm very very satisfied with its performance, feature, and stability.
Why some people find it slow MIGHT be because of this:
*I'm not sure how many people might have experienced the following:
1. The Asus P527 has a TI OMAP850 (200MHz) CPU.
2. When I installed a software to check on the CPU, the factory setting was set to 176MHz.
3. So I clocked it back to 208Mhz and now it runs faster than before.
Be reminded that the OMAP850 is sorta like a dual-core processor. Frequency isn't everything.
keerthi, 24 Jan 2009hi i got this mobile a week back from alfa mumbai for 12500 along with satnav sat guide maps f... morehi keerthi.
i am planning to buy this phone from alfa only.
i enquired and it was 12.5 grands only.
they said that this map subcription is only for 1 year after which u need to again update after buying it. is that true???
where as croma sells same piece for 15 grands and they say that u wil get lifetime subrcriptiong with this phone.
pls let me know what is wrong and what is write .
Bad Service - Still after 6 months of askign for correction, nothing has been done.
Very poor service network. They changed the motherboard, upgraded the os.. and yet nothing... more than 10 visits to the service center and no results at all.
Now they have agreed for a replacement .. but even that does not seem in sight. Its been quite some time now that my p527 is now with ASUS royal service center.

Yeah, I bought it for 16K and sold it for 9.5 K . But isn't it amazing how quickly the price can fall. I read it somewhere that there are other reasons for the fall in prices.But i surely feel that its a good buy in 10K.
So go for it guys...
August, 12 Feb 2009Its a steal for 10.5-11K. Go for it.i guess u changed your opinion, realising price -feature ratio, I guess u r little against if u bought it for the initial price at which it was introduced i.e . 17990.somebody in this section got it for 11990 with creative MP3 player. i guess it makes it cheaper than I'm being quoted
