its a good mobile, but the main problem for nokia is that there store is empty, they have not well know apps for asha or even for lumia, like subway surfers, angry birds, temple run. not even a good graphic car racing game. nd the other thing not good for theme, i mean i am theme lover. nd change the theme of mobile 10x a day. and last and very important issue for asha series is, they are not making new mobiles with camera flash. i know this mobile is not so expensive but atleast this kind of so called smartphone should have flash for camera.

Suraj , 30 Jul 2013Guys tell me this phone, what colour i chosse for buy it- red/green. An it support wechat an l... morered is best and yes it supports wechat and line bt nt whatsapp. whatsapp will b cuming sun
hi guys.. wanna buy this phone. does anybody has any idea about its download speed? and does it supports alive app of toi??.. thank you.
After 5 mins of using Asha 501 it was not impressive. The screen resolution is bad. No apps such as whatsapp .Spending Rs 5k on such a phone is not worth it. Would I not spend it on a something like Micromax which would give me an Android (agreed it will be slow and buggy however i still will have latest apps ) for that money. Dont get me wrong the Asha OS is quite impressive however it belongs in the low cost entry level phones. Nokia should port this to the sub Rs 2000 phones and give better value/app ecosystem at higher prices.
did nokia asha 501 support nimbuzz with free call option in it?
hope your help :)
Carol, 30 Jul 2013Hey, thank you for trusting me, but i don't make reviews:). I don't owe this phone:). though, ... moreThanks! I'll be waiting for your hands-on expirience and verdict before i get this device. This little thing is very promising, the only drawback for me is the lack of equalizer in the music player. Other than that, i don't mind. I think it also has great battery life. . :D
User, 30 Jul 2013I'm terribly angry and want to bang the head of guys who made this in market for cheating guys... moreThe device and it's software is relatively new. i am sure Whatsapp will be brought to this device in some time. Unfortunately, as far as i can see, the whatsapp developers are not very interested in Asha series and only some time ago made it possible for the 2 sim devices. So, you will you be needing some patience, cause they will have to make it for 501 dual-sim to.
ObserverPh, 30 Jul 2013Hey carol, saw ur post on the 808 thread so i'm confident that ur a great reviewer. I just wan... moreHey, thank you for trusting me, but i don't make reviews:). I don't owe this phone:). though, is the first asha device that i want to put my hand on to test it's stability. Unfortunately, in Europe appeared only a couple of days ago (at least, where i live) and only online and it's 100 euros. Much more then in India. Waiting for it to hit the stores. Anyway, back to headphones: i never heard of a Nokia device to be locked from other headphones. Maybe there are some headphones with mic. incorporated that this device will not support, and not only this. i'm sure iphone or samsung will not support my original N8 headphones. I'm also 99 percent sure normal headphones like the one you talked about will work without problems. But you can wait for the guys response about the headphones he used, just to be sure. Also, other guys who owes the device can give you the confirmation of my 99% word:)
not up to the hype, 30 Jul 2013Once again I don't like Samdung phones. Based on reviews from fellows like you I got this pho... moreI never made a review of this device. I don't make reviews. I just said what it is. People expect to much from very cheap phones. Now, i was talking about Samsung cause their so called high end headsets does not work in other devices then s3 s4 and what other models there are. wasn't accusing you of nothing, was just question. This is the first time when i hear that a Nokia device does not support other headphones...
