Not bad is OK tayp overall ,....????
recent updates from Nokia, Asha 501 is an awesome phone, has whatsapp,
Nice phone at great price, Very good battery back up, has good
features such as Fast lane view for quick glanceable info about alerts music, calendar appointments etc. Very smooth UI, stills taken are very good, net browsing is fast and quick with Xpress browser which compresses the pages to reduce data usage and render them faster,file transfer through Bluetooth is faster. Light weight, excellent design like lumia with similarly vibrant colors and unibody-like built quality. It comes pre-loaded with a 4GB card and the touchscreen is excellent.
1. the first thing that comes to notice is it's very small screen (well for some people that's not a big problem).
2. the camera which is said to be decent compared to other phones at this price, really really sucks. when u open the 'camera app' there's appearance of grids that stay for few seconds only after which u get to see the normal viewing. this is disgusting.
3. internet very slow.
4. no good games. the store has very few games and even those are not worth playing. on the whole i can say that the store is totally devoid of apps.
4. the phone totally kills your texting experience. very hard to text in such a small screen and more importantly the keys at the corners sometimes are not responsive to touch. it's a pity..
5. youtube videos work good. but videos from other sites play normal up to certain time beyond which the video turns green and slowly all colors start messing up with it. this is a major reason i consider it (phone) a detestable one.
on my last lines i conclude that "this phone is not worth giving a shot. NOT AT ALL !!!"
More over mail exchange server is not getting configured by any means. It is useless.This phone can only be said as one level up than basic phone. No smart phone features are there for office assistance or other application which can be useful in daily life.
Go for android phone for this price range you will get better features of software. From hardware point of view the build quality of nokia is very good. Seem like mini apple phone only regret is about the useful apps and some inferior features of Nokia Asha OS.
Battery last for longer time which is again good feature. So in short if you are looking medium touch screen based phone in low budget particularly in nokia brand and want reliable backup phone than you can go for it.
1. Easy and simple to use the basic mobile functions.
2. Latest software update has Whatsapp.
3. Battery lasts for 3 days with mobile data on and moderate use.
4. Touch screen is quite responsive.
1. Although Nokia calls this phone a 'Smartphone' in the user manual, this is NOT a smartphone.
2. Screen is very poor - low resolution. You wont get any pleasure watching videos or seeing photos.
3. Camera is horrible. Photos are mostly blurred.
4. Network signal disappears sometimes and reappears.
5. Proximity sensor is terribly lagging. Screen takes its own time to come on.
6. Being a basic phone, what was the need for micro-SIM? It is inconvenient.
