Review of Nokia Asha 502

The Nokia Asha 502 is designed for users who spend a lot of time chatting with friends online, as it comes pre-installed with apps like WhatsApp, LINE and WeChat in conjunction with dual SIM support. If you are looking for a simple touch phone with a minimalist and simple interface, this is a good choice. At a price of about, you should only consider this phone if you don’t like Android phones.


The Nokia Asha 502 is ideal for those who are looking for a budget phone. After the success of its Asha 501, Nokia has improved the series with the 502, which brings with it some minor improvements such as a better camera and a newer version of Asha OS. It is designed and built to attract young users who like to keep in touch with their friends on their phones.


With the current Asha OS 1.1, the phone runs on a 1.1GHz single-core processor. It has a minimum memory of 64 MB and an internal memory of 512 MB-quite small by today’s standards. To compensate for this, Nokia has added an expandable storage space of up to 32 GB. One of the main attractions of the phone is its camera. It is a 5MP shooter and can be viewed directly from the lock screen. You can use two SIM cards on the phone to stay connected, and both ports only support GSM. It only supports micro SIM cards, which means that you need to cut your standard SIM cards into a suitable size to fit the slots. It has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity. The phone has a 3-inch touch screen with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. It also has a 1010 mAh battery. It also comes with a 4GB memory card for extra storage space.

Build and design

With dimensions of 99.6 x 59.5 x 11.1 mm, the Nokia Asha 502 is one of the smallest functional phones available on the market. The phone is inspired by the Asha 501 and has a similar design. The only new feature is the transparent plastic on the removable back. The front side is also covered with the same type of plastic, which gives a clear layer to the entire phone when it is attached to the back. The plastic layer on the top also looks shiny and gives the phone a soft feeling when held in the hand. Compared to the Asha 501, the clear coat is the only visible body difference at first glance.

The phone looks like a small tile and looks like a smaller version of Nokia Lumia phones. The edges are sharp and sharp in the corners, which makes the phone a perfect cuboid with a slightly curved case. This makes the phone convenient and easy to maintain.

The back cover is removed, as on the Nokia Asha 501. The back cover covers the back and sides of the phone and contains the case buttons. To remove the back cover, you need to pull the cover by pressing the Nokia logo on the back and pulling the cover by the front edge. The panel is built very well and you will not break it when removing it.

After removing the back cover, you will have access to the two SIM slots, as well as the removable battery and memory. SIM slot 2 can be accessed directly, and SIM slot 1 can only be accessed after the battery has been removed. You can also insert a SIM card into the second slot without turning off the phone. The pull-out storage slot is also easily accessible and is located on the left side on the back.

The power / Lock and volume buttons are located on the right. The micro-USB port (for power and data transmission) is located at the top along with the 3.5mm headphone jack. On the front side, the phone has a capacitive button that acts as a “back” button. The camera is located on the back, accompanied by an LED flash. There is no front camera available on the phone, as it is a very simple functional phone. The phone is available in black, red, yellow, green, blue and gray colors.

The Asha comes with an average set of headphones, which are headphones (not in-ear headphones) with average sound quality. Nothing special here when listening to music.
