So any comment with the phones? biggrin.gif

Planning to buy either 210 or 501 as my second phone. But each time go to nokia, no demo set to test.

the screen glare, the keypad is hard, the wifi sometimes dont really works, dont charge off from power bank, no wee chat, no line, not really compatible with opera mini.. nokia xpress aint really cut it.. opera mini still rules...
overall.. a budget phone.. dont expect much, call is clear, sms ok, whatsapp works well, facebook ..ok ok.. the shortcut key is jus dedicated for facebook cant altered it... rolleyes.gif

sunway pyramid got demo set. overall good, from the back looks like lumia series. but the keypad is funny texture, unlike asha 302. screen and camera is basic. asha 501 better yo

i might go for asha210 rather than 501 though tongue.gif

asha501 is running a new platform, hence no simplified chinese input yet (nokia claimed that its not sold in china / hk market), still awaiting the update.

i jus contacted nokia a few times to check on the availability of whatsapp on 501, they said its jus out (though they promised july)

asha210 might b a safer choice jus as a pure 2nd phone with minimal smart features. but its a solid 2nd phone to have.

the qwerty keypad is not tat bad. for a budget phone. jus the texture a bit weird (rubberish + plastic) feel.
at this price. with dual sim + wifi. its a good enuf 2nd phone i'd say smile.gif

i have bought it yesterday, cyan color, rm239. actually was gonna go with the yellow one, but the one at the shop, its facebook & camera buttons was a bit slanted so i chose cyan instead. the os is ok, going back to classic symbian. so far the only problem i have is with the wifi performance, the antenna is pretty weak, although i sit a few meters away from the modem, the connection would sometimes lost. but i guess it's inevitable for a low end phone.

I'm wanna buy the Nokia Asha 210 with WHATSAPP button on it. Single sim, NOT dual sim.

Is it available?

Online it says it's priced at RM 230, please message me if you're selling it.

I assume it has warranty and the usual stuff it comes with like the charger.

Thanks.
