Advantages of Symbian Anna is eye-catching designs for new rounded application icon on the main menu screen, the selection accuracy on each icon is also easier.

Photo gallery on the Nokia 500 is an upgrade from Symbian ^ 3 1.2, not entirely new but worth noting.

The plus point of the Gallery on the Nokia 500 is the ability to automatically rotate the image by means of the machine.

Overall assessment of Section Gallery works pretty fast, not much point to complain.

The interface is simply shooting a few functions, including the scroll bar to zoom picture. The adjustment of the promiscuous mode is also quite complex. The camera of the Nokia 500 can include face detection function and photo mark on geography, use of GPS machine.

This photograph of a good display with nHD screen of the machine, but when brought to the larger display, nothing impressive. It shows good detail and contrast, but still noise.
