Re: Which is best

Have to say that find this a strange comparison choice between keypad device running outdated Symbian and touchscreen dual SIM device restricted to JAVA applications. You don't mention whether presence or absence of WiFi is of importance and in this price banding I would look at Asha 501.

The best thing to do is find out your needs and then go to a local store with working demos and have a feel for them yourself and try them out.

Re: Which is best

I'm currently using Nokia asha 308 planning to changai it to Nokia E5. Would it be a gud choice. Because asha 308 lacks wifi,3G,multitasking,GPS,clipboard,etc.. But the same time E5 lacks some features like turning off mobile data..

Unfortunately not as WhatsApp makes it's own access irrespective of global device settings.

Re: Which is best

WhatsApp works perfectly fine in E5.
By default, will switch to Wifi when data connection is not available, AND if if finds a Wifi connection known, that is, listed as a known access point.
