About Nokia Asha 501 DUAL SIM

Touted as an advanced feature phone from phone company giant, Nokia, Asha 501 is the company’s attempt to reclaim its dominance in the market. Suffice to say, its effort paid off as the device was found to be fun and functional.

Popularity in the Philippines

It does not take much to impress Filipinos especially since the Nokia brand was quite popular in the country. The Nokia Asha 501 was a welcome sight indeed and was received with much warmth. The phone was marketed to students and the cute design and funky colours are a great come-on. As an entry level touchscreen phone, it is also not bad. Of course, considering that it is made by one of the most trusted brands in the world, Filipinos know they are buying quality.

Product Description

Introduced in May 2013, the Nokia Asha 501 runs on a new platform which has a 1 GHz single core processor which descends from the old Series 40. It also features a Smarterphone technology and a user interface similar to Nokia N9’s MeeGo. The device comes with built in Nokia Xpress browser which supposedly results to the least amount of data transferred to the phone. It is complemented by the Nokia Xpress Now which provides content based on your location. Other built in features include social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn as well as Here Maops, ESPN, Weather Channel, CNN and eBuddy. There are also messaging apps like WeChat and productivity applications such as Calculator, Calendar, Notes, Alarm Clock, Phonebook and Recorder.

As for its hardware, the Noia Asha 501 comes with a 3-inch display with QVGA resolution and features such as Brightness Control, Screen Double Tap, RGB Stripe and Nokia Glance Screen. It has a capacitive two point touchscreen technology and a couple of sensors, the Proximity and Accelerometer. Operating keys include Volume Keys, Back Key in the bottom center and the Power/Lock Key. It accommodates a Micro SIM card and charges via its micro USB port.

The Nokia Asha 510 also comes with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and has a microSD card slot up to 32GB. It has a 3.2MP main camera with a 2048x1536 pixel resolution and 3X zoom. Other camera features include auto and manual white balance, Still Image Editor, Full Screen viewfinder. For capturing images, there are also many options or features you can choose from such as video, still or self-timer capture modes; Sepia, Greyscale, Normal and Negative colour tone modes; incandescent, Daylight, Fluorescent and Automatic white balance modes; and Automatic light sensitivity.

The device comes in 6 colours (Bright Red, Black, Cyan, White, Bright Green and Yellow) and sold at around Php4 250 to PhP 4 490. It comes with a 4GB memory card upon purchase too.

Pros

Although it has a 1200mAH battery, the Nokia Asha 501 is popular for its long standby of 48 hours and talk time of 17 hours. In a country where there are some power shortages especially during the summers, this device comes in handy. Obviously, the teens love the fun vibrant colours and the touchscreen is a plus considering the phone’s size. Its small size is also welcome especially when compared to the huge-high end models. Many users also love the easy navigation and fast response. All in all, you will love this phone for its compact size, simplicity and reliability.

Cons

If you are on the lookout for entry level phones with lots of apps, you might find the Nokia Asha 501 lacking. Remember that this is not an Android based device. The lack of a front camera is also a let-down considering that teens are currently hooked on taking self-images or selfies. It also lacks copy/paste functionality and importing Google contacts can be a problem. It can be a bit price for some but you have to keep in mind that it is a Nokia phone after all.

Recommendation/ Conclusion

If you are looking to buy your teen a new smartphone which is simple enough to use and most importantly, very affordable, you will not go wrong with the Nokia Asha 501. It is quite reliable and you will be surprised at its decent performance. Battery juice is also impressive which is always a good thing for phone users.
