Nokia Asha 501 review: A brightly-colored bargin phone

 

The touch-screen featurephone Nokia Asha 501 is a good value at $99, but its low-quality screen and camera will turn off anyone who wants an impressive smartphone.

The ; is compact and easy to use. It comes in fun, bright colors.

The low-resolution screen and 3-megapixel camera disappoint.

For $99, the Nokia Asha 501 is worth getting if you want a small, simple, colorful feature phone. However, U.S. denizens will have to buy it unlocked.

Colorful, fun and compact device ; Great swipe-based interface

Still a feature phone lacking good apps ; Captures below average images

Nokia is selling the Asha 501 at a retail price south of $100 contract-free. As low as that sounds, at this price there is already a number of Android device like the Samsung Galaxy Pocket with better functionality. If you want the most apps and...
