Yes, it’s another addition to the Asha platform family of smartphones. Compared to the Nokia Lumia family, the Nokia Asha 502 features a unique layered design that looks quite cool but still, it retains its vivid and colorful profile. The Nokia Asha 502 is still sporting the Fastlane home screen and the OS is still deeply integrated with your social networking accounts just like the Nokia Asha 501 which I reviewed a few weeks ago. The Nokia Asha 502 has only a few minor upgrade from the Nokia Asha 501 and the Nokia Asha 502 still rocks an affordable price. Check out the specifications after the break
Nokia Asha 502 Specifications
The only noticeable upgrade from the Nokia Asha 502 aside from the layered design is the 5 MP camera w/ flash. I was disappointed to see that the Nokia Asha 502 still sports 2G instead of 3G. I hope Nokia can consider that next time. The price of the Nokia Asha 502 in the Philippines is P4,800. Android phones might be cheaper but remember, the Nokia Asha family has one of the longest battery life on touchscreen phones right now. The Asha OS keeps on blurring the lines between a featurephone and a smartphone but still, there are still a lot of apps that are needed on the Asha OS.
If you’re planning on buying a Nokia Lumia 502, I suggest that you buy one immediately to get a chance to win at the Nokia Buena promo. Yeah, they’re raffling off a Nokia Lumia 1520 and a Nokia Lumia 1020.
