Nokia 500 vs. Samsung Galaxy Ace

 

Several days ago I tried to compare the upcoming Nokia 500 with the HTC Wildfire S, and it came out that in many aspects Nokia's entry-level smartphone is even better than HTC's mid-range device. Now I want to compare the Nokia 500 with the Samsung...

Nokia 500 vs. HTC Wildfire S. Which One is Better?

 

The Nokia 500 was announced only several days ago, but it has already caught the attention of many geeks with its Symbian Anna OS and low price. HTC is also offering quite an interesting device – the Android-based HTC Wildfire S, which isn't very...

Nokia 500 preview: First look

The Nokia 500 isn't the big daddy of Nokia's 2011 portfolio, but, if the price is right, the 500 could find its way into a number of pockets and purses.

Nokia 500 Review

 

The Nokia 500 is the mass production of the new Nokia Symbian line, as it has the lowest specs out of the bunch announced in time for the holiday shopping craze. With that said, it's no slouch, as it sports a decent display with 229ppi pixel density,...

Nokia 500 Reviewed: Affordable and Feature-Packed

 

The Nokia 500 is an entry level smartphone fitted generously with a high performance processor and lots of memory. This touch-screen smartphone features the latest Symbian operating system with a much improved software performance, new Nokia Maps,...

The Nokia 500 is an entry level smartphone that gives good first impressions and does not disappoint. It may lack important features such as the camera flash, but this phone is rated as an entry level phone which relieves the user of high expectations.
