Nokia Asha 502 REVIEW:


Asha 502, is another smartphone from the freshly designed Asha lineup targeted at giving a smartphone like experience on a budget phone. The phone comes with a 5MP camera with LED flash and falls under sub 5k segment. Let us find out what this device offers and how it tries to justify its price tag.

Design & Display:

The design of the phone follows the same aspects of the present Asha series. It’s a candy bar phone which looks decent and similar to Asha 503. There is a transparent coating on the back side which adds a look but its prone to scratches. The phone being at 11.1mm thin and weighing 100gms, is compact and feels comfortable to hold in hand. At the front there is only one back key. Though made of plastic, the build quality is solid and the backpanel which is removable comes in various colors. The phone sports a 3inch TFT display with 240x320 resolution and 133 ppi. Viewing angles and colors look okay given the price tag. Brightness levels are good but don’t expect a great sunlight legibility.

User Interface:

The device comes with Nokia Asha Software platform 1.1.1 and is upgradable to 1.4. Most of the UI is similar to what we have seen in the recent Asha lineup. The Fastlane feature which provides access to recent activity is present. Notification panel can be accessed by pulling down from the top where you get few connection toggles. The phone is loaded with a bunch of preloaded apps and games including Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter etc. Overall the UI feels smooth and it didn’t show up any hiccups during general usage.

Camera & Audio:

The device comes with a 5MP camera which can captures images upto 2592 х 1944 resolution. Here there is no auto focus or front camera but we have LED flash. The camera interface is neat and offers few settings on the main interface.  The camera app can be accessed from lockscreen itself. The image quality is decent for a device in this price range, but for a 5MP this just feels average. Details and colors look fine but noise levels are noticeable. The loudspeaker produces loud and clear output and with a pair of headphones there is slight distortion in the output.

Connectivity & Additional Features:

The phone comes in dual sim version – supports micro sim cards which can be placed at the back and offers dual standby. Network reception is very good and there are no call drop issues. Call clarity is decent and loud enough. In noisy environments too, the call quality is good even though there’s no second microphone for noise cancellation.

The phone also supports Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 3.0 and FM Radio, but there is no 3G here, so that’s a bit sad. internal storage is very low but the device supports microSD cards upto 32GB and Nokia has provided a 4GB card in the box.

Performance & Battery:

During general operation, now and then we see some lag while going through menus or swiping across screens, closing some apps etc but this doesn’t happen always. This could be due to the lower amount of RAM. But since we are looking at a budget device, people who just want to use it for calls or texting won’t feel such a lag. The battery capacity is of 1010mAh which is lesser than the other recent Asha phones. The battery lasts two full days easily under moderate usage.


Decent design & solid build
Good battery life
Few preloaded apps which come well handy


No 3G
No Auto Focus
No front cam
Average camera performance


So far, the Asha 502 tries to maintain the basic tasks well in hand. Ofcourse lack of 3G might put off the impression and minimal lag too might seem considerable if you tend to use some apps and games. But for users who just want to use it for calls and battery backup, it just works fine and most suitable to basic needs. If you’re looking for a device in this range, the Asha 502 is a decent choice while compromising few aspects.
