Expert Review

31 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The Nokia Asha 503 is certainly great for doing basic phone calls and messaging, but over that it doesn’t impress due to its very average performance. It’s more worthwhile to spend just a little bit extra and get a decent Android phone with more apps and a bigger screen than trying to get things...

Nokia Asha 503 ( dual-sim)

1 February 2014
  • Summary: Its surprising design is the best thing about the Nokia Asha 503, but if you're looking for a traditional smartphone experience, its underperformance will only disappoint..
  • Pros: Nokia's Asha 503 has a sturdy, eye-catching design that's entirely pocketable and easy to use one-handed. It's Wi-Fi capable, packs in a camera flash, and won't break the bank.
  • Cons: Poor screen quality on the Asha 503 makes reading the display unpleasant. The camera's fixed-focused lens takes mediocre photos, and speakerphone volume is too low to be useful. Navigation is slow and jerky.

Nokia Asha 503 review: One step at a time

GSM Arena
22 January 2014
  • Conclusion: The Nokia Asha 503 brings a more robust 5MP camera (be it fixed-focus) and 3G to a package we already liked, and that's what we can safely call a good start. Emerging markets are the most likely destination as usual but, yet again, the Asha series look capable of transcending borders.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE, Dual-band 3G with HSPA, Optional dual-SIM support, dual standby, hot-swappable secondary microSIM, Nokia Asha software platform 1.2, 3" QVGA capacitive touchscreen, ~133 ppi, Corning Gorilla Glass 2, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, display auto-rotation, 64MB RAM, 128M...
  • Cons: Low-resolution screen, Fixed-focus camera, No smart dialing

Can you replace your smartphone with a Nokia Asha 503?

16 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Small, 3.5G capable and touchscreen equipped, can the Nokia Asha 503 be used as a smartphone? As the top-of-the-line model of the Nokia Asha 500 series of hybrid feature phones, the Nokia Asha 503 offers a number of features which are on par with that of most standard smartphones.

Nokia Asha 503 Review: In Depth

30 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The Nokia Asha 503 is a budget phone with a low resolution screen, a middling camera and a lacklustre browser. While the design both inside and out is eye-catching, it’s not enough to justify the price.
  • Pros: Fun, eye-catching design, 5-megapixel camera, Lightweight, compact build
  • Cons: Poor value for money, Low resolution screen, No GPS, Lacklustre apps and browser

Nokia Asha 503 review

TechRadar UK
9 January 2014
  • Summary: A bargain handset that is full of features, but not that smart
  • Pros: Great battery life, 5 MP camera, Replaceable rear cover, Easy to use, Cheap, The Nokia Asha 503 will run for several days without needing to be charged. A great feature if you need to be away from a power outlet for long periods of time. Despite its poor quality, the camera is one of the plus poi...
  • Cons: Small, low res screen, No GPS, No front camera, Small selection of apps, The tiny screen with its low pixel density leaves a lot to be desired, pixelating the interface and providing poor viewing angles. Watching video on the Asha 503 is difficult, as the controls are basic and you find you have ...

Test du Nokia Asha 503 : un faux air de Lumia…. en XXS

19 November 2014
  • Conclusion: Le Nokia Asha 503 est, d’ailleurs comme tous les mobiles de la gamme, doté d’un design réussi. Voir même « encore plus réussi que réussi », notamment avec ce côté plexiglas dont est doté le cache-batterie. Sans parler de la vitre Corning Gorilla 2 rarissime sur un mobile entrée de gamme.

Nokia Asha 503

3 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Par son design et son prix, le Nokia Asha 503 se positionne en alternative crédible pour un smartphone d'entrée de gamme. Son écran, loin des standards actuels, le cantonne essentiellement aux appels et aux SMS et autorise la navigation Internet occasionnelle.
  • Pros: prix, design original et soigné, finition et robustesse,emplacement micro SD.
  • Cons: définition de l'écran, puissance, pauvreté de la logithèque.

Несладкий леденец. Обзор телефона Nokia Asha 503

18 February 2014
  • Summary: Не воспринимайте Nokia Asha 503 как смартфон, не ждите от его программного обеспечения такой же плавности работы и тех же широких возможностей, и тогда он вас не разочарует. Если посмотреть на Asha 503 как на обычный "телефон-звонилку", то его возможности (не говоря уже об отличном дизайне) приятно...
  • Pros: Оригинальная внешность аппарата позволяет выделиться, Отличное качество материалов и сборки, Продуманная схема управления, современный дизайн интерфейса
  • Cons: Очень низкая скорость работы интерфейса, Скудный ассортимент приложений, не работает WhatsApp, Экран с низким разрешением и ограниченной палитрой, За те же или чуть большие деньги можно купить гораздо более функциональные аппараты на Android (вскоре - и от Nokia тоже).
