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.
[deleted post]Both the sim slots on Asha 501 supports micro-sim.
You won`t be able to use a regular sim in this phone.
mobile performance was good.but on nokia pressmeet on 24-06-2013 they said itsupports like line and wechat.but not available at ovistore or in net for asha501 if anyone know plz tell me
Can anyone tell me about the size of sim cards used in nokia 501.Are they mircro sim cards or normal size sim cards??plz clarify
Did you are using this phone(501) because my friend say that he dont find these apps on store or even pre installed
AnonD-150420, 05 Jul 2013But many websites had mentioned that WeChat, eBuddy and Nimbuzz are pre-installed applications... moreNah! Wechat, nimbuzz, ebuddy is not preinstalled. Although I found ebuddy on nokia store and installed it on my 501.
I have a question: Do these chat apps (on Asha 501) run in the background to receive messages? Or we have to keep them open? Because when I installed ebuddy and did my login after that it has an option to minimize the app but I was not receiving the messages. So when I tried opening up the app after that I received the message.
Anyways, I hope this doesn`t happen with whatsapp when it comes for 501, otherwise it will be a huge problem.

AnonD-150420, 05 Jul 2013No buddy, this device does not have 1Ghz processor. I think you have read wrong. In fact, this... moreI did some research and checked out the nokia webpage for the specs, but the processor info is not mentioned there.
Anyways, I checked it on Fone arena website and mentions it has a 1Ghz Processor. Anyways it may be wrong as well because officially nokia has not mentioned it.
