Hi, I want to buy a cell phone with good camera clarity and high speed internet. My budget is around Rs. 10000. My options are Nokia 500, Samsung Galaxy Fit and Samsung Galaxy Y Duos.
Could you please suggest me should I buy this phone or which phone should I buy? I am currently using Nokia 5233.
i have been using this phone for 2 months.in this time i have went through every tiny details of the phone and so would like to tell everyone about it.nokia 500 is a phone which lies in the Rs.10000 bracket.it has a very good screen of 16 mollion colours and a good capacitive response which helps to type on this screen like a breeze.build quality is solid and feels good when you hold it in you palm. 3.2inch screen is a little congested yet its not a problem because of the user interface. it comes standard with symbian anna but it is upgradable to symbian belle which i had done and trust me it looks and feels much upmarket and better than before.the box has extra two coloured backcover which gives it a nice package overall with a standard nokia headset and nokia fast battery charger.internet experience is good as it has a 1ghz processor and video playback is fine.speaker quality is good and battery backup is what i liked most and i had used it for a good 3 days(2g network) and almost 2 days(on 3g network) till it ran out of juice.it has awesome 5MP camera which is worth mentioning as pictures are really awesome.video recording quality is pretty good( not HD videos but the are worth mentioning ).music playback is awesome too.
yet the phone has flaws,biggest of which is the 256mb ram and lack of GPU which will show its effect after a while the phone has been used.multitasking is not a job that this phone is meant for as it would slow down drasticlly unless applications are closed.no decent games can be played with anna interface but belle has inbuilt game like angry bird which has good feedback.but mind the fact that no way can 3D games be played on this device which is a shame.overall i would give it a 3.75/5 rating. people concerned with looks,camera,light internet browsing,music playback can go for it with no doubt but people who want multitasking,gaming and the extra bit out of this device i would advise that change your choice and go for devices with inbuilt GPU like adreno 200/205.hope you all like my review and best of luck to all the new buyers....

I bought this phone on last saturday, as I got insurance amount of NOKIA C7 (lost 3 months back)...
-Display clarity is superb
-Loudspeaker and ear piece- Awesome clarity
-very fast as it has faster processor
-easy to change the battery backcover
-touchscreen sensitive is really good
-very easy to upgrade belle version.its awesome speed
-Wifi works superb
-Camera pic taken in bright light are superb,
-Pinch zoom option in symbian belle is mind blowing...
-feels very soft and lighter to hold in hands
-battery backup max 1.5 days with normal usage
-symbian anna sucks... (I updated belle within 30 min, and now its like jet speed)
-camera clarity is dull when u take pics in low light (even in evening time)
-No software cd provided
For camera clarity, u can send me a mail, i wil reply with pic taken in my new nokia500
