Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Aside from adept and advanced call management, I'd further like my smartphone to manage to Document Viewer, VOIP Support, Pushmail (Mail for Exchange), Outlook and much more, just like the Nokia Asha 503. Although the Nokia Asha 503 might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. I more than often choose for adept devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Nokia Asha 503 makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much stick with to me. Video recording is fun and allows me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. I won't worry about the other is credited with in the Nokia Asha 503 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Nokia Asha 503 will not even last me a day. The extendable memory of the Nokia Asha 503 is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones with high internal memory that in a like manner comes with highly confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 3 inch display is quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. No clue what's the point of storage which can't even make enough room for my apps, leave alone my books and games. Extendable memory is always a particularly pleasing storage backup you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 3 inches display of the Nokia Asha 503 was the first thing that grabbed my attention. The screen size of the Nokia Asha 503 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 5 MP camera resolution. You have the flexibility to easily go for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even stick with this port to transfer music and images. The 0.128 GB is really very less. If it can't save all my files then what good is it.
