Nokia 701 review: Belles and whistles

17 October 2011
Symbian Belle is on the march and the leader of the pack is the Nokia 701. It busts out the big guns - a 1,000 nit floodlight of a screen, a fast, modern processor and an up-to-the-minute connectivity package, complete with NFC. If you're experiencing a deja vu, rest assured...

tebss, 05 Jul 2012is it possible to use a samsung phone to use after falling ... moreMine also fell and sank to the bottom of a Bucket full of water. The phone struck the rim first and went down in three pieces, the bodJy, battery and cover. All I did was to dry out the phone couple it back. Recently about 4 months after had to replace the screen, I was surprised to see no sign of rust inside it. I don't know of any other brand can beat Nokia in durability.

Using my 701 for about a half a year. Often use for web, photo/video taking, and music. So far have no regrets for buying it. I would say it has the best performance/price ratio.

This phone is a value for money.
It has 8MP camera, 720p HD video recording, plays most of video formats without converting. Pretty smooth video playback and youtube.
Supports HD games,SIS and java games and apps also supported.
Display is currently workd brightest, easy visibility under sunlight.
Touch screen is better than most droids.
Widgets, homescreen are very useful, maybe you'll get most work done in homescreen itself. Has 6 homescreens which also rotates to lanscape mode including menu.
GPS works just perfect, navigation free for lifetime.
Battery backup is good 1.5 days with email client in background, playing games for an 2.5 hours, accessing wifi for 2 hours(downloading), music for 3 hours, call for 1.5 hours.
If you don't use all those then talktime is 10 to 15 hours on 2g and 5 hours on 3G or 3.5G.
You can use it as 3G modem, it can give upto 14.4Mbps speed.

It has TV out, USB charging, USB OTG(for connecting pendrive or hard disk or other nokia phone-You have to get OTG cable).

Music player with cover flow looks fantastic.

Comes with preloaded games,Angry birds and Asphald urban 5 HD 3D and u can install much more.
