Personally, No offence to anyone, but the Nokia 603 is much better than the Nokia 500 because it has twice as much RAM,Better Bluetooth support, NFC, Scratch resistant glass(which i found excellent), a larger screen, Better video capture with face detection and fixed focus, Higher capacity battery, USB On-The-Go which is a very useful feature, Dedicated mic with active noise cancellation.The Nokia 500 only has a higher ppi, it's lighter, it requires a mini sim and wifi hotspot(not sure about this).When you compare it like this Nokia 500 may have low cost cost but it's features are just like its cost. The 603 cost more, but it's features make it worth the extra buck
what the hell is this??i m using 603 and its amazing..day before yestrday i update my 603 to belle fp1 which is awesom.i like it.its better than any other phone.and now my phone is like an android 2.3 after update
Nokia 500 is low on cost but high in features of akin phones... ! Anna to Belle Update available since Feb 15, 2012, uses a standard SIM card. Nokia 603 is above average on cost and performance than 500 but uses micro SIM card.. which is a down point as there is no availability of microSIMs in India, users have to carefully cut the SIM to make it microSIM which may damage the SIM on the whole...!
this site sucks. it doesn't show nokia's special technologies. nokia 603 has a clearblack display but nokia 500 doesn't have.

Nokia 603 has NFC
