Anonymous, 19 Jul 2013Plese tell me from where i can download line and wechatDear friends, let me inform you that Nokia Asha 501 (single sim device) supports "Line" as well but Whatsapp and Wechat are not available at the moment (i have no idea about dual sim variant). Besides this phone battery is very good. We can download Torch , Dictionnaries from store.
Youtube doesn't work right now.
Line's icon is on the phone display, we just do the setting then it works fine. I bought this mobile phone in black color. I do not have problem by searching name in the contact because this Asha 501 is smart enough.
In the writting setting ,we can use both : English full keyboard and English phone keyboard. So i make me so easy by texting. There's few more functions that i have not learn yet. Finally i am satified with this handphone (single sim variant), it values for money. Its camera is only 3.15 MP but its better than my old chinese phone (5mega pixel).
really a cute phone worth and very friendly operation. Thanks to Nokia asha series R&D.
Its simple and cute. Im sure its also durable and reliable thanks to the great battery back up. Great one nokia! :-)
i found ths phone preety enough to be used by students but is it supportable for whatssapp , wechat ,line etc.
real guys u make our life to be easy coz u're the phone are real good keep it up. I real like ure phone.
It's nice to hear 'Nokia Asha Platform 1' something like Blackberry OS as their own platform.I think this OS should be improved a lot to be called a smartphone OS.First & foremost it should have multitusking function,can support microsoft office documents and other jobs that can do the andriods & iOS so that it can run side by side with windows OS.Nokia only makes mobiles for over a decade so it should have their own Operating Systems
Awesome phone!!!!!! it is a pretty smart phone
AJ, 19 Jul 2013Mr. Gaurav, plz do not spread rumours that nokia 501 support whatsapp, wechat, line etc.
Guys... morePlease be informed that Asha 501 supports Line as I am using it. WeChat and Whatsapp is not yet available but it is expected to come in a month's time.
Documentviewer is there however have not tried opening a file yet. Excellent phone is what I would say. with this phone "You get what you need" not "what is trash"
i recently bought this phone..and my friends told me that it will supports whatsapp as they are gonna update this phone soon...so can i exactly know when are they gonna update..????replyy soon...and also tell me which all cool apps does it supports
AJ, 19 Jul 2013Mr. Gaurav, plz do not spread rumours that nokia 501 support whatsapp, wechat, line etc. Guys... moresir,, just wait 2 to 3 week whats apps,, and we chat will be available in nokia 501.
Why is this called a smartphone ??? No document viwer option, no 3G facility. Battery only 1200 mAh!!!!!. We were very much passionate about this model before launching. But it resembles to a feature phone more than a smartphone.
AJ, 19 Jul 2013I dont understand why this phone is being rated so high. I could not find anything in this pho... moreIt is for the people who just makes calls & sends sms & frequent basic surfing in the net
it is rated so high because of its out standing design & quality for such price range
it has good features which serves for the basic purpose very well
it has good battery power.
& the nokia is providing 4GB memory card which is extendable up to 32gb.
It has newer fresh UI which runs smoothly & freshly & doesnt hangs like the crapdriod phones so many apps still have to come from nokia whis in the progress too
the processor is fast enough to operate the phone.
It has fastlane feature which is a very good one & serves very well
& it is manufactured by the worlds fine mobile brand NOKIA
for this reasons it is rated soo high & the rating will still increase for sure see the popularity of this phone better than many high end & low end phones
what else would you expect for this price tag if you people are not satisfied with this phone throw it away & buy your mobile as you like simple
But we are very satsfied with this handset & suggest to friends,relatives & to many people :)
Gmt, 19 Jul 2013R u kidngMr. Gaurav, plz do not spread rumours that nokia 501 support whatsapp, wechat, line etc.
Guys let me tell you, as of now there are no chat apps available except ebuddy for nokia 501.
However whatsapp n wechat is expected in future for nokia 501 but exact date for the same is not known yet.
I dont understand why this phone is being rated so high. I could not find anything in this phone which is impressive.
1- This is not a smartphone,
2-it does not even have important apps.
Even a thousand rupee phone does the job of calling n messaging.
Why spend 5k for just calling n messaging ??
Having a nokia 501 is no better than having an extra battery coz it has nothing to talk about exept battery backup.
