A good phone, but fails to compete with the phones of the same price group!
12 December 2013
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.
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.
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!
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.
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...
Excerpt: When it comes to the camera in good light conditions, image is more than acceptable. When the light is poor, picture quality greatly decreases. The lack of LED lighting is kind of an issue. Nokia 500, with the update of the operating system is a very interesting choice if you are looking in the entry level smartphone range. The construction is solid and the list of features and extras are hard to overlook.
Excerpt: The Nokia 500 is a good smartphone with Nokia Belle..The phone is powered by 1 GHz processor. It would be great if it has GPU and Autofocus in Camera..Any how the phone is better since it has low price...
Excerpt: Its the Best Phone under its Price range. Its 5 Mega Pixel Camera take Great Pictures and after Nokia Belle Update its look is got more awesome. Its the Best Smartphone I ever used with its Super Fast Internet and Cool User Interface.
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.
