SatyaV, 22 Aug 2013dont go for asha its very slow in day to day tasks.....any third party java apps it takes lot ... moreI bet you didn't tried the 311 or 300 then.
But if you're talking only about the 501 then you are right indeed.
It's very simple. The Nokia Asha brand has 2 exciting phones the Asha 300 and the Asha 311. I hAd a 203 but it was laggy because of lack of ram, rom etc. The 300 is a good Asha with resistive touchscreen and a physical keyboard, the Asha 311 even better with capacitive full touch no keyboard. They're good bacause they have a good processor with 128mb ram 256mb rom clocking @1gHz. 3,75G is also available on those phones. Whats App is available, you can stream with pretty good quality, youtube and radio streaming. And the most important thing they run very smoothly, no lags at all. I put video's on my 311 with MP4 bitrate: 1500kb's@30 frames a second. It's like you watch in hd. By foot and a at least connection to the EDGE network you can even use Nokia Maps(gps). But this 501 is a big flop. 1 year has passed since they introduced asha 311, but this 501 is at least 3 times as slow as the 311. The price is €90 for the 311 so i would go for the Nokia Asha 311 if you want a good experience with Nokia's S40 software.

how can i set a mp3 tone as ringtone on nokia asha 501...i cant fin... moreIf want to set a particular song as your ringtone, then it will not work from your phone memory or from memory card.
You have to open the Music Player and then search the song which you want. Tap on the song and long press it, then there will be popup option as 'Set as ringtone'. After that there will be option to set to Sim 1 or Sim 2. Then you can set to the desired one.
Got this phone recently. For the price, it's a surprisingly good phone which can do lots of stuff. The interface is very intuitive and easy to use. As with all Nokia phones, this phone feels very sturdy and I'm sure it can handle a couple of drops and bumps. Overall I'm very pleased with the phone and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap smartphone. The only thing that can make it better is if it had WhatsApp, but I'm pretty happy with Line and WeChat at the moment.
any frnd plz help me.....

Guliver, 22 Aug 2013Also there is no text copy-paste functionYou'll need a newer update to your nokia suite before you can use it with nokia,as the drivers are not on older versions of nokia suite
Siddu, 23 Aug 2013Is it good to buy,dudes tel me plzzzzzzzzzThe choice is yours to buy or not to buy. Buy a phone based on your purse and what you want from it. So if I may ask what do you want Nokia 501 to do for you? J.T.
I was really excited when I first knew that nokia released it's asha 501. I've used nokia before and was really satisfied with the feature of that nokia 7310 supernova. But now I realized that this asha 501 is a DUMB PHONE compared to supenova. I just got it a month ago. all I can say is nokia is BS and this asha phone is a piece of shit. whoever developed this flatform is an arcade-games-fan who loves to play pacman. haha
