Karen004, 18 Jan 2012Hello Dear..
You used Samsung galaxy SL for almost 15 days and before you were using Nokia C7... moreandroid has a lot of bugs including multi-tasking but ics is on the way which has much improved multi-tasking. but I thnk @yazi-pk needs more. time to android.
while symbian is a much stable and compact os. which gives u a long battery life compared android.
I used n8 for a long time now jumped on android . but one positive point of android that makes its superior then symbian is its market which include commanly all type of apps. basicly I thnk if I have this app in my phone, I got it frm market . :-D
but lot of bugs. :-(
I bought it yesterday black one it is superb fone..i loved all features...swear...i can recommend every one to take this..Nokia really rocks..it is standard always...

You used Samsung galaxy SL for almost 15 days and before you were using Nokia C7.It would be very helpful for people deciding to buy a new cellphone if you tell in brief all the differences you found in symbian anna and Android OS.and PLZ do write your experience about Nokia Belle after you buy Nokia 701.which OS did you like and dislike?..(try to throw light on speed of OS,internet speed,built quality,screen,connectivity,overall feel of the handset with all differences among these handsets.

vyoma123, 16 Jan 2012Display is highly subjective,both iphone and nokia 701 uses same technology for display its ip... morecheckout phone arena screen comparison of iphone4 and 701,they clearly say 701 is better,sonys bravia engine is something according to them makes picture look sharp,sony's display is slightly better than tft or normal lcd maybe 5%,its nowhere near amoled or ips lcd.
my friend bought nokia 701 today for 250$ and its very nice phone games are clear and crisp screen...

I guess i'll have to take it to the nokia care centre ... And even the nokia care helpline was unable to help .. pretty disappointing
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2012ha ha . u r telling that this one is better then ray. why I used both side by side . and thats... morehaha! its true that sony exmor tech is great. one thing you dont know is that symbian belle is lighter because its more optimize than your android, that's why android needs better hardware specs.
Mabooks, 16 Jan 2012i need usb otg & tv out... spec says
1)Ray dont have both...is it true bro...if its true ... moreI thnk both phones r good in their place . some wants symbian and some android so its not about os.I choose ray coz I want android and thats it
symbian gave much long battery backup then android coz android is heavy os and it needs more battery. so I thnk ray has less battery backup then 701 . but not bad . I used ray whole day in a single charge in case of heavy use and 2 days in normal. so I m satisfied wid ray. and secound in my case I don't really need tv-out in my phone.
SO its all depands on u . choose on the basis of ur needs . ;-)
Iam from ulhasnagar(India),on 29dec2011 I bought this engineering gem(understood why Nokia went with C7 design).
Hardware- hardware is just superb(compact,gorilla glass but menu key felt little wobbly nonetheless overall phone hardware is just awesome).
Bought from themobilestore.in in Rs 17380 with 5% discount on Icici debit/credit card.
Camera is damn good considering Edof lens (refer: 701 camera review in allaboutsymbian.com)
Loudspeaker - Quite loud and crisp greater than nokia E63 speaker.
Everything is working perfectly no bluetooth problem,etc my phone made in korea.
Best all round phone in price category of Rs 16000 to 17000.
Guys dont buy any android phones reason:
1.company dont provide minor update like Nokia for overall improvement .
2. Google is an advertisement company they have data retaintion policy,they preserve user identity,privacy,any bank data,user monitoring like big brother. Users are not safe in google hand (just search on internet).
3.increased number of malware attack.
Guys just buy this engineering marvel.
Dont read those negative response either they dont know how to operate or they are having bad luck (buying defective piece).
