The Nokia Asha 501 is a 3-inch smartphone for emerging markets. It's colorful, feels pretty sturdy, and is very cheap.
There's little going on around the back. That little button at the bottom lets you take the cover off.
The plastic felt pretty strong in my hands on tests.
Volume and power buttons are on the sides. They're easy to press in a hurry.
On the top are a 3.5mm headphone jack and the micro-USB port for charging and data transfer.
The back pops off, so you can swap it for a less battered one, or if you just fancy a change of color.
The only seam on the phone is between the screen and the casing.
There's a 3.2-megapixel camera around the back.
Navigation is performed mostly by onscreen gestures and the single button on the front that takes you back a page.
There's a microSD card slot and two ports for dual SIMs.
It's available in a whole host of vivid colors. Here are just a few, alongside some of Nokia's other phones.
The lock screen can show notifications. You can swipe them away or tap them to deal with them straight away.
The browser's home screen shows icons to quickly take you to your favorite pages.
