Nokia 500

  • 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

  • Cons: Camera lacks autofocus, No flash light, no front facing camera, low resolution video capture (VGA 15 fps), No GPU (cant play HD games)

Great phone, great price

  • 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

  • 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.
