A good phone, but fails to compete with the phones of the same price group!

  • Excerpt: This phone is robust and feels great in the hand, but fails to compete with the other phones which fall in the same Price Group. Excellent for simple use but not for the people who love to MultiTask. Preserving the "Nokia Built", drop it a hundred times but it wont give up. Not a phone for Social Media Enthusiasts. The Operating System fails to compete with the Windows and the Android OS.
  • Pros: Good Looks, Good build quality
  • Cons: No Camera shutter button, No Flash, Lags, Outdated UI

Nokia 500

  • Excerpt: I am dissapointed with build quality of the phone. I have always trusted Nokia, for it's amazing build quality, but this time I don't. Though it has a 1Ghz ARM11 processor, its rather slow than speedy, especially when you update it to Nokia Belle Refresh.
  • Pros: Sharp display., Nice call quality., Nice design, changable battery covers.
  • Cons: Poor build quality, no screen protection., Small display, aspect ratio not suited for such small screens., Battery lasts a day., Camera's quality is dissapointing., Poor recording for a 5MP camera., Web on a stock browser is dissapointing, laggy., No 3D GPU. Many elements in OS are laggy, because of it., Death-grips in reception., Poor Wi-Fi connection ., Small keyboard on portrait mode.

MY FIRST SMARTPHONE: Good! but ready to move on and up!

  • Excerpt: I loved its price, the size, the screen resolution, call quality and fast processing. I hated the unconfortable size of the screen for typing, the camera without autofocus (useless for scanning documents), the very short battery life, the limited apps for Symbian Belle. I keep it in a soft case to avoid risk scratching or falls and It does feel cheap and squeaky when pressed!
  • Pros: Value for the money!, Fast
  • Cons: Camera, Battery Life

A phone for hating.

  • Excerpt: Well I dont like this phone. It has its cheap build,which scratches so easily. And it makes those, squeeky noises while pressed in hand.Performance of this phone is a shame, especially while talking about web surfing. Browser has big lags, sometimes impossible to use. When it comes to Adobe Flash, lets say, nice, but browser lags even more because of it. Well there are some more problems with it. Lags, freezes, most of the time restarting. Camera isnt nice, too.
  • Pros: Sharp display, WiFi
  • Cons: Bad camera quality, Sluggish, laggy UI. Sometimes smooth., Lacks 3D GPU., Battery doesnt last long. And more... I just gotta go to toilet and watch a movie. BYE

  • Excerpt: the phone is a disaster cos of its RAM...camera wont open after a while, it hangs and restart by itself...TOO BAD... Nokia should have known that such a RAM will be too small to handle the processes of a phone like this...
  • Pros: reasonable price
  • Cons: poor RAM..., no flash for camera, freeze and restart sometimes

  • Excerpt: The Nokia 500 has a nice interface, good price, decent features - but you've got to update to Nokia Belle for more. I bought my 500 with Symbian Anna preinstalled. Experienced frequent restarts. However the Nokia Belle update resolved most problems and brought along an excellent user interface, compared to Anna. Microsoft Business Apps (Office)is also available as an optional update.
  • Pros: Nice UI, Easy to use
  • Cons: Lags at times, Will not receive Feature Pack updates in future despit 1Ghz processor
