Nokia, the Finnish smartphone and tablet maker, has always been considered a game changer in the ever-evolving smartphone industry. As a rival to other world leaders including Samsung and Apple, the firm fell behind for a while but has now made a huge comeback with its line of Lumia devices running the Windows Phone OS.

At last year's Nokia World event, the company introduced six new handsets. While the high-end phablets took the spotlight, Nokia also made sure that it still caters to the needs of its budget customers. Introduced at the event, the Nokia Asha 502 budget smartphone is a shining example of how hard the firm is still trying to take over the low-end smartphone market by stuffing a bunch of impressive features into a small-sized device.

  • better than the Nokia Asha 501 and a good basic touch phone
    Shekar Raja (May 14, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The Nokia Asha 502 an upgraded 501 is no doubt a better option. This dual SIM handset sports a 3 inch screen and sails on Nokia Asha platform 1.1. It is priced at under Rs. 5,900 just a little more than the Nokia Asha 501. Design, Display and OS The Nokia Asha 502 comes with a completely new design, looks much better than its predecessor the Asha 501. On a closer look you will find that there is an additional layer for transparent plastic that covers up the phone. It does give an elegant, classy and unique look. Build quality and finishing is very good.The Nokia 501 had curvy edges whereas the 502 edges are less curvy. It seems as if Nokia has placed a less curvy transparent shell over the 501. The 502 however is slimmer than the 501 The single navigation button has been replaced with a touch button as compared to 501 that comes with a physical button.The touchscreen display is 3 inches supporting resolution of 320240 pixels. Touch is smooth and responsive, supports orientation and double-tap to wake up. There are two sensors accelerometer and proximity. Screen supports 2 point multi touch. Performance There are dual SIM slots with dual standby mode, you need micro SIMs. Other features are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This handset supports 2G (GPRS/EDGE); 3G is not supported. 502 runs on Nokia Asha software platform 1.1 with 64MB memory.Performance is good. There is 64MB memory and micro SD card support of up to 32GB. It is a basic budget phone so don?t expect too much out of it. The handset does support social sites; Facebook and Twitter apps come pre-installed. There are few basic games that also come pre-installed. Camera There is only one camera placed on the rear side. It is 5MP fixed focus with LED flash support. The camera quality no doubt is better than as seen on the 501 model The video recording quality (320240 pixels) is no good. Others The sound is loud and clear. 1080p and 720p video playback is not supported. It is a bit difficult opening up the back cover as compared with 501. The Asha 502 screen is not scratch resistant; mild scratches are clearly visible. OTA (Over the Air) software updates are supported. There is built in FM Radio. Battery The 1010 mAh BL-5A battery according to Nokia gives talk-time of up to 13 hours. You can play music MP3?s for up to 40 hours. Verdict Look wise the Nokia Asha 502 looks much better than its predecessor. The price difference between these two handsets is approx Rs. 1000. Asha 502 comes with 5MP FF camera that does a reasonable job when it comes to still photography.If you are planning to get a basic phone with touch it is definitely a better option as compared to the Nokia 501.

  • Asha 502 ? A Trendy Device
    Flipkart Customer (Mar 29, 2019) on Flipkart
    "Those which glitter are not always gold! True but not always especially when it comes to my new Nokia handset ? Asha 502. Not a size zero figure and a little bit curve on four ends demands my attention. Bright colours have given it a unique identity and that uniqueness is evident in every aspect of design on my new handset. I love its finishing ? the way black front nearly meets the rear part in bright colour or traditional palette, with sleek metallic shine looking like ?LoC? or Line of Control between them. I also like the thin black lines running around the sides as it adds elegance to overall appeal of new Nokia launch. The phone is not an obese kid and I don?t feel any problem while carrying it with me. However, that is not to say it lacks durability. In fact, I don?t have any doubt that its strong structure will survive the wear and tear of time. If it looks good, it performs well on several fronts, which I least expected of it. Its design caught my eyes and now I am bowled by its performance. The stylish model features a 7.62cm display screen, offering pretty enough space to reveal considerable amount of details. Both photographs and videos look livelier on my device as it features a HighColor display along with a high pixel density. The workable area, i.e. the touch screen responds well, at least my one-time knocking is enough for it to act immediately. The beauty is transparently veiled in a crystal clear shell and so my fingers don?t produce any prints or scratches there. Dual SIM, for me, is a cost-excellent option. I swap the cards to get the best offer. The cards are high on memory power and so don?t lose setting information of five (maximum) SIMs. So swapping feels a lot easy and quick process. A lot of add-ons are at play here to give me an ultimate experience of browsing, social networking and snapshooting. With one swipe, I can get more and share more with others too. With Fastlane thrown in, I can have a quick view of what I have recently posted on my Facebook and tweeted. I can see all the recent FB updates along with the next in my calendar. All these are done with a single swipe and come up on a single screen. Moreover, I can also take a snapshot view of the likes and comments on my FB posts and photos. Due to smart and speedy connection, I can get to do all these within a few minutes on the clock. That takes my joy of social networking a few steps further. Browsing feels a great experience with the Nokia Xpress Browser. Faster browsing, more data saving ? that?s what I enjoy on Asha 502. Websites open quickly and navigation is quick and easy on sensitive touchscreen interface. And when it comes to searching trendy, new information on the internet, Nokia Xpress Now app is there to help me out. With Asha 502, it is now easy for me to step into the demanding field of photography. Adding a customize touch feels like a child?s play with this new Nokia touch mobile. I touch to take photos and then swipe again to share those with my friends on FB. " Quality means nokia
