Dhanjit, 05 Jul 2013Battery is good sound is good overall phone is good in pictre phone looks larger in actual ... morei have heard tht whatsapp is not working on this.. n i want a new handset at 5 to 6k range with dual sim. it has dual sim but no whatsapp.vl it b updated soon? shud i wait to buy it. and wht bout map navigation or has it got ny similar feature?
Hey guys can i get a help about how to download/install chatting apps like whatsapp or wechat?
I think this phone dosent supports these apps and however line messenger says that it will be soon available..
Got nokia 501 y'day.. So far my experience has not been great. This is a "feature phone" n may be i expected little more than that. Phone restarts again n again while playing .avi video file of more than 160mb file size, its frustrating..
N browser is also not able to download file whose size is more than 150 mb - Pops up message "file size too large".
And there are no good chat apps available as of now like whatsapp, ebuddy, line etc...
I sold spice mi 425 to buy this but...i m now regretting on my decision. It is just a feature phone, dont expect smartphone capabilities as i did.
Its good for those requiring only basic features like calling, messaging, playing dumb games etc, others stay away !!
Guys i m willing to buy this phn. Does this phn supports minimizing the apps. And return to home screen. While the apps. Is running on other side?
how is battery after single charge and using internet?
is whatsapp and viber compatible?
j3ff, 06 Jul 2013Good :Screen, battery, touch, loud speaker, light weight, colours, superfast response. Fb work... moreYou said it correct mate! We can customize the lock screen wallpaper but not the home screen ones. For that we have to stick to the only the preloaded wallpapers provided.
I think the reason why we cannot change the home screen wallpaper is because it kind of moves in the background along with the menu/fast lane when we scroll. But if they would have given the option to put any other image instead of the preloaded ones, they might have tiled itself and it wouldn`t look good. Anyways this is just what I assumed, I may be wrong :)
Someone plz share the link or tell me the steps to download whatsapp on asha 501

Good :Screen, battery, touch, loud speaker, light weight, colours, superfast response. Fb works fine but we will loose interest browsing, Handy.
Worst : Red handsfree with all colours of phones and falls off from years.
Only 2 screens to play with 0.99% fun
No wallpaper customization ( only preloaded ) .However, lock screen wallpaper can be customized.

Ravi , 05 Jul 2013Can u please let me know
battery performance of asha 501 ?
I got the phone on 3rd July at around 3pm and since then (without charging my phone at all) I have been extensively using the phone to check out each and every feature, play all those free games, wifi, calling etc.
And the battery got empty yesterday 4th July at around 8 pm. So I got around 29 hrs of usage just with the default "out of the box" charge.
I fully charged the phone last night 4th July at 11 pm and since then (now its almost 24 hrs since the first full charge) just a tiny bit of the battery got decreased from the battery indicator.
Anyways I did not find any battery percentage indicator or something of that sorts on this phone so won`t be able to comment what is the exact percentage of the battery remaining.
Although I will post again when the battery gets completely empty after my first full charge so that we can get an idea about the battery life.
But I must say so far I am very very very impressed with the battery life. This is what I was expecting from a smartphone. On my S2 whenever I used to play games or use wifi on it I had to keep one eye on the battery level (LOL). But now, with this phone that is a thing of the past. HA HA HA
Now I can understand why Nokia didn`t put any battery percentage thingy on this phone, because you don`t have to worry about it.
Note: The battery time may differ based on the usage.
