Come on Gsmarena, i'm a Nokia fan, but nobody really needs an extensive review for a budget phone, the spec sheet is more than enough. I heard a guy saying that SGS4 is a better phone than Asha501, and he had concluded that after reading full reviews for both, lol:)
KMB877, 29 Jun 2013Sam, May I ask where you find applications? Ovi store does not have listed Asha 501. ThanksI didn't find the applications for this cell on any websites. As it's new OS is best, I thought there will be avaibility of apps and many friends mentioned about the apps for this phone.
Geez.. This is not a flagship phone or a SMART-smartphone that you can install games and apps (in general). This is a simple phone, a phone that has touchscreen, a camera, video/music player and of course, call and text feature. Don't compare it to other phones because this will surely suck.. *sigh*
SAM230396, 29 Jun 2013NOKIA ASHA 501 is my next smartphone.
It is EOS (End of Samsung).
Cool phone with hot apps. ... moreSam,
May I ask where you find applications? Ovi store does not have listed Asha 501.
Just look over the international sales numbers!
Samsung, HTC and SONY are selling millions and millions of extremely sophisticated and very expensive phones. How many are powered by Android and how many by WM? Over 95% by Android. Nokia made nice phones (Lumia family), but this will not help. Beside iPhones, customers are interested 90% into Android, 3% WM, 3% Blackberry and 4% other OS.
Maybe youíll be right - Google will abandon Android in 20016. Yah, so!? Iím talking about phones sales 2012, 2013Ö Probably in 2016 Nokia will be known on the market under Microsoft brand. Sorry, we like this facts or not, this is the market.
BTW Ė Iím not an Android fan and currently I own a Nokia E7.
NOKIA ASHA 501 is my next smartphone.
It is EOS (End of Samsung).
Cool phone with hot apps. 40 EA Games. The most important features of NA 501 which had impressed me the most is it's superb battey backup which is unbeatable by any phone.
I suggest to those whose budget is 5k, they should definately buy this.
ASHAstic phone !
great design and good quality but , , is can do multitasking like syambian bele fresh os fresh price just 9
This phone is for countries like India, where 3G is a novelty
the price of a 2G Data plan is twice as less as the price of the 3G plan, and including more MBs
and on a phone like 501, how would u utilise 3G speed
a person buying a phone for ₹5000 would certainly not spend ₹300-₹400 on only the data.....not having 3G was an intelligent cost cutting by nokia
KMB877, 28 Jun 2013This phone is a disgrace! Honestly, Iím extremely disappointed! Probably Nokia didnít hear we ... moreAnd 2016 without Android? What if Google decides to stop Android because of no profit? 95% of users download paid apps illegally. What when $200 quad cores from China become available everywhere? You can't predict future.
This phone is a disgrace! Honestly, Iím extremely disappointed! Probably Nokia didnít hear we are in 2013. However, finish guys, do yourself a favor: fire Elop first and after, forget about WM and put a few Android phones into the fabrication ASAP! Else, too bad - we will celebrate 2015 without Nokia brand!
This phone sucks... Reason= no 3g.
Thought nokia would do better on the better than its predecessor;the asha 311
Great phone,better specifications, definitely everybody likes it
