Nokia Asha 501 preview: First look

 

With a refreshed design and software, the candy-colored Nokia Asha 501 turns a new page for the Finnish feature-phone lineup. Low-end Android smartphones continue to be the main target but, for the first time the Ashas, which Nokia has always insisted...

Nokia Asha 501 review

 

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 is selling the Asha 501 at a retail price south of $100 contract-free. As low as that sounds, at this price there is already a number of Android device like the Samsung Galaxy Pocket with better functionality. If you want the most apps and...

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

 

Until the Android-based smartphones arrived into the country, Nokia was one of the most desired brands for mobile phones in our country.

The Nokia Asha 501 is a wonderfully refreshed phone with a design borrowed from the looks of the popular Lumia lineup. With a snappy 1 GHz processor onboard, a fresh new Nokia Asha Smartphone OS, Wi-Fi and GPRS/EDGE connectivity, 4 GB bundled storage,...

Nokia Asha 501 review: A brightly-colored bargin phone

 

The touch-screen featurephone Nokia Asha 501 is a good value at $99, but its low-quality screen and camera will turn off anyone who wants an impressive smartphone.

The ; 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.

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
