Bought NOKIA ASHA 501 (Black) yesterday.
Excellent mobile. I am very very happy. Touch is responsive.
1)....Well, let me tell you even chinese cheap cell phone gives 9-10 hour talk time (having 1600 mAh battery).
A1) but then having less life time. tell me how many months this cheap china (not chinese) phone can survive compared to Nokia phones
2)...Next thing in android you have Very basic apps (like whatapps,viber,etc) which this lacks.
A2)Yeah, available to install but then considering very small storage available combined with weak system, having these apps on board can be quite pain in the a55 too. And for your information whatsapp is not yet available for asha 501 (it's a work in progress), not that the phone doesn't support it
3)...No GPS..?? what no gps?? sounds weird...yes that right no GPS..then whats the use of maps?? lol
A3) Nokia maps using information from the phone cell signal plus how many of people would use turn by turn navigation on small screen. Not to mention gps on cheap android phone can takes forever to detect the phone location
4)... 133ppi is good?? even chinese Crap mobile has beter ppi (~212++).
A4) less ppi but then the u.i design compensates it. 133ppi on asha 501 is pleasing while 133ppi on cheap 3" screen android is horrible.
5....chinese andiord has NOW got decent battery i.e. 5-6hrs Talk time...and 5Hrs Wifi+data CONTINUOUSLY usage time..
A5) in your dream. how long it can last then with NORMAL usage? I bet not more than 1 day. with asha 501 I can achieve 3 days on single charge with slightly higher than normal usage
6...Then tell me single reason why to buy this not cheap Chinese android dualcore mobile + GPU (in same price) which can also give 6 hr talk time?
A6) because android on cheap phone + weak hardware run likes crap, enough said.
I am using asha 501 for my sms/phone call during works. I do have some samsung android phones used for my test at works. The bottom line is Nokia Asha 501 is very pleasing to use if you doesn't expect a cheap $90 phone to do $300 phone task. The camera captured decent quality image too despite at low resolution with punchy color compared to other budget phones. As someone who always using high end phone for my daily task (my personal phone still is Lumia 920), I can say the $86 I spent on asha 501 is worth spending.
