Nokia Asha 501 review: A tiny, colorful phone with budget specs

 

Produced in six bright colors, the small, electric Nokia Asha 501 practically leaps off the shelf. Nokia is hoping to corner the entry-level smartphone market with its unlocked Asha line, which ranges from bare-bones QWERTY phones to the tiny...

The Nokia Asha 501 is compact and easy to use. It comes in fun, bright colors.

The low-resolution screen and 3-megapixel camera disappoint.

For $99, the Nokia Asha 501 is worth getting if you want a small, simple, colorful feature phone. However, U.S. denizens will have to buy it unlocked.

Colorful, fun and compact device ; Great swipe-based interface

Still a feature phone lacking good apps ; Captures below average images

Nokia Asha 501 Review

 

Potential – that's the word I'm stuck with before letting go of the Nokia Asha 501. It could have been the perfect feature phone for everyone if it weren't for the low-res display and the lack of must-have apps.

Nokia Asha 501 Review: A New Hope? Nope!

 

"The Nokia Asha 501 does not support WhatsApp. The End." That's the TL;DR version of this review. Jokes aside, the Asha 501 is Nokia's big hope for markets
