Anonymous, 10 Aug 2013is there whats app????? is der watsapp in dis phone..????
Please go for samsung star....never buy this....
If we say star is lagging then we have to say asha 501 is crawling.....
star is of similar price and it can do lots of things lot efficiently.....
One day of usage i got heavy expectations with this....but was very dissappointed with this.......
1) double tap to unlock is based on accelerometer so unless u heavily tap the screen the phone doesnot unlock....it is not u double touch it gets wakes up.
2) the nokia express browser is good,it is the only app which supports multitasking....even if we kill it by swiping it will be in background.
3)after updating the facebook app i am not able to activate the push notifications. please help me
4) email app...opening email on 2g takes lot of time.
6) other java apps which we install will take atleast 30 secs to open....wtf is this.......i have installed operamini it takes lot of time to load.....nokia express browser is not that good as opera mini....
5) wechat notifications are delayed.....waste
6) the whole experience of scrolling and swiping....the frame rate is very low....it feels like it is lagging.
7)in the potrait onscreen keyaboard the keys on right most 'l' and 'p' are little unresponsive....may be specific to my handset only.
Only goof things are battery life.
Atiya, 10 Aug 2013How do I shift the pictures from my phone to my laptop?via usb connector
I cannot term it as smartphone because it cannot perform multtask, and it uses normal nokia operating system
yes. this phone has a good battery backup of 3-4 days with normal usage.
