priya, 15 Nov 2013how do u knw tht whatsapp will come on monday?if the watsup update comes how will i download it on ma nokia asha 501
I've nokia 501 It's a gud cell phone...apart from whatsapp...nimbuzz, line, wechat & Implus wd gud results... :)
Sta young wizz , 14 Nov 2013Can you help me? ? I cannot look the mp4 videos.May i know from where are you downloading these Mp4 videos ? Asha 501 plays Mp4 videos with H.264 codec.
If you have a computer and a video converter software then you can convert your videos by choosing the Mp4 H.264 option in your converter. That will do it.
But the problem with Asha 501 is that , when it plays any videos (mp4 or 3gp), there is choppyness and audio cut in atleast 3 out of 5 videos. Let me know if you come across this issue.
I think , this is the fourth or fifth time im posting my comment here since i didn't get any reply on my last posts.
So here i go again , I bought this phone mostly to play my favourite songs and music-videos , since im a media-junkie and love to play them when im outdoors.
Now , when it comes to playing audio tracks , this phone does well . It offers good sound quality when plugged in to the earphone.
But when it comes to playing videos , asha 501 is lacking way behind, compared to other brand phones in the same price range.
* The problem is , some videos are appearing choppy & distorted when played on my asha 501.
* Also while playing some videos , the audio in the videos are getting muted for few seconds. The audio again comes back if i pause & resume at the time of audio cut.
Now let me tell you , I download videos on my computer and convert them for my asha 501 in the following settings-
256-356kbps video bitrate
After converting , i transfer my videos to my asha 501 & find 3 out of 5 videos have choppyness and audio cut.
I mean when im transferring the same converted videos to my brother's samsung galaxy young , there is no choppyness or audio cut.
Have any of you guys experienced this ??
Please do reply .
