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. 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
great piece of hardware at such low price.. nokia rocks.. keep bringing phones like that.. :-)

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. I did as they suggested and my battery backup with usage came around 4 days and my mobile didn't restart.
Summary: I bought this phone mainly for navigation purpose and it is doing the job quite well. Nokia maps and navigation is one of the best features of this phone at this budget. Pros: 1) Have all the necessary features you need in a smart phone e.g. wifi,3g,capacitive touch. 2) Battery backup is average. 3) Easy to handle, good looks, comes with 3 different skins :) Cons: 1) Occasional hangs & restart. 2) No flash.
Summary: first of all, i want 2 tell is it wont fit for gamers.................................... except that phone is awsome......... its low weight,touch sensivity,camera,and so faaaaaaaaast. its connectivity is fantastic with other hardwares............
Summary: i bought this as my new upgrade and its a good buy i like it very much. The phone is a nice design it has a light feel to it in your hand and with good functionality. I like the phone and even though its an ex network unlocked phone from Portugal i'm still very pleased.
Summary: I'm using this phone from last 13 months, Last month only i have updated my mobile OS from symbian anna to Belle, Performance and looking wise its very good comparing with symbian anna, More options included. Now restart problems reduced, supports more games because of belle(not 3D), Its not showing memory full While opening camera and audio player, etc...(Older version problem fixed).
Summary: Thanks to Flipkart team for their wonderful service and perfect delivery of items in time. I bought nokia 500 last week, best phone in the price range of less than 8k. its comes with belle preloaded. Now nokia is providing Microsoft Application free upgrade.
