this is my first touchscreen. Tried out iphones and samsungs before getting this, and am very satisfied with my 700.
Fast, crisp, beautiful. The perfect size, not too big and not too small (for my liking). Nokia Belle is huge relief over Symbian ^3 and performs like a treat. Had it for a month, the battery holds usually for 4-5 days. I'm an average user and am not crazy over apps, that's probably why it holds so well. Great call quality.
In other words, everything I ever need from a smartphone. Only disappointment is the camera, could've been better. On the other hand you cannot expect a superb camera fitted into a phone as thin as the 700.
PS I've read numerous complaints regarding the 700's performance after updating Belle to Feature Pack 1. I didn't update mine and it performs fast enough and without bugs or glitches. So for future 700 buyers, don't use the FP1 update if you don't need it.

Honialz, 24 Oct 2012frndz i want to knw that which one is better Sony Xperia P of Nokia 700 Can't compare: Sony Xperia P is a bigger phone with a large screen, Nokia 700 is a small phone with a smaller screen
If you are looking for a direct competitor to the Xperia P then there are many options
If you are looking for a direct competitor to the Nokia 700 then there is only really the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray

Probabably will also try to upload your contact list, just like WhatsApp. I don't want some third party company tracking my telephone number and those of all my friends! I guess my SIP calls will all be via Nimbuzz from now on :-(

Very glad I got Nokia 700 now and not Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray (other option for a small, powerful smartphone) after latest issues over the JB upgrade and complaints concerning bugs in the ICS release
Nokia certainly have better support policies than Sony
I think I'm going to miss Symbian when the time comes to replace my Nokia 700

I looked at the original blog mentioned in your linked article and the excellent news that Fring will be releasing a new version shortly for Symbian - I guess it has to be FP2 compatible! SIP for our phones again :-D

Check out BH-111 and BH-221 also.
Both can be used with your own head phone, 3,5 mm jack.
BH-610 has more advanced bluetooth decoders.
I am not the expert, but I think BH-111 could be just fine actually in your case. Attach 32 ohm headphones, BH-111 is loud also.
Moidu, 19 Oct 2012Batorry back up very bad. Internet not speed. Buy a spare battery to have in your wallet, BP-5Z can be bought for about 13 Euro in online shops, at least here in sweden.
22g to carry in your wallet and it doesnt take any space actually.

I think BH-111 is quiet enough and if you connect 32 ohm headphones it is loud to (if thtat matters).
BH-221 is also a good choice I think, more features..
and then you have Bh-610 which is another story.

The most noticeable changes are a new swipe to unlock screen (the meego style), new music player skin, more widgets, new keyboard with word prediction and some performance tweaks. With regards to app compatibility all the apps I had prior to the update are running good after the update too. I have some 50 installed and they are fine.
