  •  one of the best nokia phones in its price range!! 02 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By Sharique Azim

    Its is worth for its price,while nokia never fails to deliver and perform.i was not a big fan of nokia until recently(i.e last feb) when i bought this phone.touch response is atmost par to other capacitive touchscreen phones,while being a little sluggish at and design wise this gets 4/5.the UI is somewhat good ,though something that did not impress me was fast lane. Contacts and calling are though a little pain ,where nokia might bring in some supports whatsapp,line,we chat etc. 3g is not but wifi supported as mentioned Camera:nokia makes exxeptional camera phones.the clarity of the picture is fine at 2mp camera,ehich is 10 times better than other cameras with higher resolutions.low light images are bad due to no flash.but the picture can be zoomed without any fades. Battery life is around 2 days on moderate use. except for 64 mb low internal memory you would love this phone.

    I never knew that such a durable yet trendy phone will be available at such an affordable price. Last month I bought a mobile phone for my mom on her birthday and as she is not much into Smartphones and Tablets, I thought about gifting her something stylish yet simply to use. I told the same to the sales girl at the Nokia Store and she took out a shining red coloured Nokia Asha 500. I liked the phone at the very first glance and bought it immediately. The phone looks great and it’s durable too. My mom told me that she feels absolutely light to carry it and it is even very comfortable to use. She is a working lady and so she needs to do most of her work through emails. She now finds emailing easier with the Nokia Xpress Browser which makes the internet browsing faster. The Fastlane is a feature which is exclusively available on this device. It keeps all the recent activities of my mom in one single screen and she can jump to any of them with a single swipe. Social apps like Whatsapp, WeChat and Line is also available on the phone, though my mom isn’t really interested in them. I need a mobile phone for myself and I am thinking about buying this one. It won’t really burn a hole in my pocket and will solve my purpose as well.

    Nokia Asha 500!! This phone is weird. It places calls automatically even when the phone is locked by password, picks up the last dialed number and then calls in a burst! Triggers five to six calls within few seconds. Happens while the phone is in my trouser pocket, during a particular time of the day. Wonder if the phone is hacked! I have tried everything. Contacted Microsoft. Restore to factory defaults. Placed password to restrict the touch access. Nothing worked. It is causing me severe social embarrassment.
