Nokia Asha 501: The Likes and Dislikes

The Nokia Asha 501 is the first smartphone sporting Nokia’s Asha OS 1.0. This is actually a refreshed Symbian S40 series from older Nokia feature phones. It was first launched in India and landed in the Philippines a few weeks ago. Would you consider this buying over so many affordable Android phones from local brands out there?

Nokia Asha 601 specs:

  • 64MB RAM
  • 128MB internal storage expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB
  • 3 inch QVGA TFT display (240 x 320 pixels) 133 ppi
  • Scratch resistant glasss
  • 3.15 fixed focus camera
  • 2G, WiFi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 3.0
  • Dual Sim , Dual Standby
  • 1,200 mAh battery
  • Asha OS 1.0
  • SRP: 4,490

I got a friend who bought this. I asked her what are her likes and dislikes about it. Here are her thoughts

Likes:

  • Nice Build Quality –
  • Design – Its cute and comes in different colors
  • Battery – it can last for days!
  • Easy to use UI
  • Good camera

Dislikes:

  • Low resolution screen
  • Small screen
  • A Bit expensive considering its a feature phone

Verdict: If you are  out for a touchscreen for basic calls and texts then this phone is for you. Or else, I prefer that you get an Android smartphone from Cherry Mobile, MyPhone, Torque, Starmobile or any other affordable local brands.
