I bought 2 weeks back.
Not bad for 5K price range for smartphone.
1) Alarm sound too low(not sure what the issue is)Has seen lot of complaints on this with no resolution
2) Cannot set a specific tone for alarm (Not sure whether problem is with my specific phone)
3) Message view: Numbers are shown in different background, so that you cannot read the numbers. What I do is go to forward option, so that I can see those numbers) as a whole all message is same color)
4) Volume control not that good.
If these things concern, avoid this phone.

How to open the saved pages ?
I am using UC Browser for browsing, downloading, etc. And I always use to save pages which I liked. I save it with UC Browser and it gets saved in my MC. But when I go to the gallery and opened the file, it shows error displaying, 'There's no app to open this file'.
Please someone help me to get rid out of this big problem.
And one more thing, the themes are also not supportable on my device.
Is someone facing the same problem ?

I have been using the 501 for the last 2 months and despite a few minuses would choose it above androids.
Internet browsing is good. Picture quality will not make you go wow but, certainly you can manage with its fixed focus 3 megapixel cam. True that I miss the secondary camera, LED light (flash) and skype but again for Rs 5k that would be too much to ask for.
Ringing volume is not as good as other nokia phones but then again quite a lot of phones in the market are less louder.
There have been times when I have to restart the phone. This generally happens when you are listening to music and open the browser. But not much of an issue.
Phone is definitely an eye-catcher and people may take it to be one of the Lumias (for those who may feel lowly for using a 5k phone)
Relevant apps are there on the OVI store and a lot of them are practical. For people who want a feel of smartphones should use this and they won't regret.
Facebook, Line, wechat, linkdin ensure that you do not get bored. Games are there too which you can download from OVI. Music player is one that would be a companion. Playing videos is not very exciting but if you can manage with occassional scrambling or loss of resolution than most of the videos including youtube would play. Video streaming is average but still watchable.
Battery is not as good as promised but with a high net usage and about 2 hours of music playback and several photos it lasts for about 30 hours which is not bad considering the poor battery life of the androids.
We can say that if you want a Lumia but can't afford it then it would be the best option.
Overall it is the best bet with 5K and if you can go upto 10k, well then its the Lumias or the other androids you should go for.
Awaiting the launch of other phones on the same platform.
Would have loved if Nokia had distinguished between the Asha Series and the Asha OS.
sriram, 30 Aug 2013I bought this phone couple of weeks back. You need to understand that it is not a complete sma... moreDo we have incomplete smartphones? It then means Nokia is living in pre-historic times among dinosaurs.
