Though im big fan of nokia, i feel that asha 501 is pathetic. In addition, you dont have much apps for this platform. Performance is not up to the mark.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2013a good phone but no whatsapp.........why?????it has whats app brother
To all those who are considering this handset:
I have been using this handset since last 4 days..
I also own a lumia 920, nokia n8 and galaxy note 2 which now I am using as a tablet without sim..
I wanted a phone which looks good in hand, makes call reliably and has essential smartphone features like Facebook, Twitter and whatsapp. And nokia Asha 501 is just that..
Now to clear some doubts....
The design is awsome, fits comfortably in hand.. The colours are headturner..
The interface is pretty smooth inspite of just 64 mb ram. No lags at all moving through the interface. .
The concept of Fastlane is intuitive.
YouTube videos run smoothly through the nokia browser, no hiccups.(also over wifi)
Music player is good
Whatsapp is currently not available but will be supported later on, as told by nokia.
All in all I am loving it..
No android phone can match it in this price range..

I'm still confused whether i should go for this phn or Samsung Galaxy Star s5282. Although i'm not a Samsung fan, i've been caught up with the OS (Android v.4.1 JB), which is not offerd by Nokia. Still can't make a choice. Need urgent advise.

How can you compare a feature phone with smart phone?
I do know Nokia is king in feature phones, but can't beat entry level android phones as Android phones offer lot of applications
(may be some are not useful).
Can someone help me in finding an app for mail for exchange i.e microsoft exchange app so that i can configure my office emails.
Abhi, 09 Jul 2013Yes, u hav heard it right.... Wifi is does not work while access youtube or Nokia Here Maps...... moreWhat the hell!
Who told you youtube and here maps does not work with wifi? Do you have the phone with you where you checked?
I have the phone asha 501 and I only use wifi on it and everything works fine; downloading apps, youtube, internet browsing, here maps etc etc...
So stop saying that you cant use anything using wifi on asha 501.
