1 Ghz cpu + 5 mp camera and it only manages VGA at 15 fps. This shows just how crappy symbian is and has always been. Android with 1 ghz and same camera films 720p. Yes, i have a n97, strted of with a 6260, then N80, and now n97.. BUT..no more Nokia for me ever, maybe , just maybe if they make a Mango phoen with hdmi( not mini hdmi or any other variant) and gyro, and capacitative, and miniSD, and and and....basicly hitting all the nails on the head, not missing any. MAYBE just like that i will buy another Nokia. I cant believe how cheated and dissapointed i am with N97..i honestly wich at times that Nokia goes to hell and back and bankrupt and all of it's chief designers responsible for N97 end up starving to death. I just hate them with a huge passion, the zise of a flipping paralel universe. GOD !!!!!! that's how crappy N97 is. Now i say i'm also happy ..why ? Cause i found a new case and i'm gonna refurbish the N97 my self and toss it on ebay and i'm aiming for replacing it with an xperia x10, hopefully xperia arc, neo, nexus one or galaxy s 1(but i'm still very very buged about the lack of camera flash), and very very hopefullyish an optimus 2x or atrix.
So, what can we learn from this ? Well...enough is enough Nokia. People ask for specific things for a reason...OK ? People know best, so just give it up and make a darn android phone. I know i'll buy it, if it has all the mentioned specs.
nokia should make their screen size wider for better internet broswer experience
no front-facing video-call camera?
Here in the Philippines, the nokia 500 only costs around 8600-9000pesos compared to the brand new 15k c6-01 so i will have to disagree with the comment saying that it costs the same. Moreover, my Nokia 500 comes with the preinstalled quick office so I could at least browse pdf files, powerpoint, excel, and word files.
My only complain would be the restarting problem and the lag that it experiences. Hopefully, the software will get better with belle.
ARM 11 CPU and no GPU? What a joke!
iPaolo, 24 Oct 2011with all and that "garbage" that u talk there is an very important and superior grea... moreMy Ovi Store never lags or close suddenly, however, my sister got a Xperia x8 and since she bought the phone, she CAN'T download anything from the market because nothing start to download. Every app from her phone have to be download from another sources. We already searched of the internet and there's no solution for that unless that you root your phone.
Nice isn't ? So give us a favor: don't tell about your own frustranting experiencies like it was common issue.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2011sub-par cam and browser, ram only 256mb and not even belle on board! nokia should offer this m... morea hundred? for this cellphone? , no! maybe Mc Donalds Should offer this cellphone with the happy meal... that is the fair price
no matter, 24 Oct 2011There are some things, that gsm-arena just can't understand: The number of apps @ ovi store i... morewith all and that "garbage" that u talk there is an very important and superior great number of quality apps , i owned a Nokia N8 and believe me, ovi Store really sucks!! specially when lags, close suddenly and no download the apps refer, and the apps, are not exactly "great quality apps"
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2011Nokia 500 doesn't have better hardware than C6-01, only faster CPU. Everything else is worse. ... moreYes ur Right, thats the problem with this crappy phone, it does not have GPU...SHAME.... GSMArena pls, review the nokia 700 i want to know if this phone uses the Broadcom BCM2763 GPU or just the older one (N8, E7 etc) (I know the 701 uses the new GPU, but how about the other belle phones)
There are some things, that gsm-arena just can't understand:
The number of apps @ ovi store isn't so called problem.
What important is - the quality, not amount.
Android market is flooded with garbage apps. Is that an advantage?
Please Gsmarena review Nokia 700!
sub-par cam and browser, ram only 256mb and not even belle on board! nokia should offer this model for 100€, i'd then buy one for my father, he dosn't know much about technology and he will like to get a nokia with a touch-screen and good battery life!

Nokia 500 doesn't have better hardware than C6-01, only faster CPU. Everything else is worse. It's not strange that C6-01 offer much better performance, the Nokia 500 doesn't have a GPU. Also, it costs the same as C6-01, which makes this phone a terrible joke.
