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 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...
Pros: Nokia Belle, 1 GHz processor, Display (3.2 inches with 229 ppi), Light sensor, Back covers, Light weight (93 gms)
Cons: Camera lacks autofocus, No flash light, no front facing camera, low resolution video capture (VGA 15 fps), No GPU (cant play HD games)
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.
Pros: Nice UI, Easy to use
Cons: Lags at times, Will not receive Feature Pack updates in future despit 1Ghz processor

Excerpt: Hi Guys, I bought this mobile and faced same problem of restarting, the battery backup was very low and sometimes my display goes off. I went to Nokia Care and they updated the software to Anna 10.31. They suggested me to observe for 3 or four days without using memory card.
Summary: This is powered by Symbain anna OS with OVI store availability and with many feature. All thing are good but it is outdated one and it to be need a big discount (as outdated) but that not available here. And offer not a lot good value of money.
Summary: Hi. I've been using this phone for a week. Wonderful device. Excellent display. Just ignore the occasional lags. Because this phone is really worth for the price. All multimedia work fines without any issues.
