While other smartphones come with hefty price tags, the Asha 501 joins the bandwagon of affordable gadgets in the market. Before we talk about how inexpensive this smartphone, let us go over the details as to why it should be your next handy pal.

High-end design

The Asha 501 arrives in a variety of vibrant colors ranging from red, yellow, black, white, green, and cyan that will surely give you that cool vibe. Also, it features Nokia’s durable and removable shell alongside a Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant three-inch capacitive touchscreen.

Battery life span

One of the many things to like about the Asha 501 is its exceptional battery life, which can last up to 26 days without you charging it. That’s one thing other brands can’t deal with. Wait, you haven’t read the most interesting part yet.

Connect as-you-go

Besides its dual sim feature, the Asha 501 comes with WLAN that lets you connect to any hotspot especially that it is made with the latest version of Nokia Xpress Browser. This exclusive browser lets you access Facebook, Twitter, and other sites by compressing web pages up to 90%, even if multiple pages are open.

Perfect for the youngsters on-the-go, the Asha 501 arrives with a 4GB memory card, which is expandable up to 32GB, so hundreds of music, photos, and videos can be stored for memories.

Unfortunately, this device isn’t for the selfie and photography fanatics (if you know what we mean) since it only has a 3MP camera. Despite its low camera resolution, the Asha 501 salvages its reputation for its jam-packed preinstalled apps and games such as The Weather Channel and Bubble Bash.

If you want more exciting games, Nokia Gift allows you to enjoy 40 of your favorite EA Games – for free!

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
