I forgot to mention what is to me, a significant point. whenever I go through the phonebook, either to call someone or send a text, I often type in the first letter or two of the name to narrow the search, then select the name from the list. A lot of times I've selected the wrong one because the operating system is unresponsive and slow in this situation. Seems like a small point but it's difficult to get used to and a bug bear when you've switched from the great 6300.
Got the phone a couple days ago, build quality is pretty good, EXCEPT the fact that the battery is a little loose inside the phone, so you can really feel it moving around inside. The other major downside to this phone I've experienced already is the battery life - it's disappointing, with average use (a call and a couple texts every few hours) I'm having to already charge it every other day! both problems associated with the battery I guess. smaller point - fingerprints on the chrome make it look dirty! headphones that came with it aren't that good,
Other than that, the build quality is nice, call quality excellent. haven't yet experienced chrome peeling off - the cleft? it must be very small.
yeah the battery's terrible! knocks around inside and only lasts a day or two of average usage!
iam getting it this week
i was looking for a black one but cant find one so its going to be silver chrome
I currently have the Samsung U700 and have a problem with the chrome finish peeling off. I believe this is a common problem with this phone. Has anyone had a similar problem witn the chrome finish Nokia 6700?
Great review. This device is destined to sell by the bucket and its e series style build quality will appeal to many. Also it will perhaps unintentionally lead to s sharp fall in the sales of the arte and scirocco range given its luxurious design. Nevertheless, its price puts it up against some strong alternatives (both feature and smart phone). Within Nokia's range at its current price it goes up against the 6600/6600i slide and the N79 and the forthcoming E52. However, as does happen in this market, in Q4 2009 if the price drops it will probably be the best selling non touch screen mobile on the world market.
the gsm arena review says that.. there is a tiny cleft between the glass covering the display and the frame around it, is it true..plzzdo reply those who are having the phone....
waitin fr reply...
amazing phone n amazing review from gsmarena.

Terry, 13 Jul 2009My Mum has just ordered this phone is arriving tomorrow is it a good phone??Yes
My Mum has just ordered this phone is arriving tomorrow is it a good phone??
I agree bout keypad,its not to the quality of the 6300,its too noisy,feels cheap,and you can overlap from one key to another. Its a real shame cos its a great phone otherwise. Why couldnt Nokia have put a quality keypad on the 6700. Ive used Nokias for 12 years,never used a different make and I can safely say its the worst keypad ive used. The 6700 needed a quality keypad to match the quality of the 6300 keypad,but Nokia failed.
yes, there is an led notification light. it is around the d pad. you can set for how long it will appear.
you can also search for this feature on youtube. there is a video
Hey, can anyone tell me if theres a light that flicks on & off say if u get a txt or a missed call like the 6300 does?? I read a specification that said 6700 has an led light for when u recieve txt or missed call...
Sorry took a while to answer. Yeah they are all proper click buttons. I got mine for £25 a month on o2 for unlimited texts and 600 mins. Carphone Warehouse are sellin it for £220 on pay as you go.
abdo, 06 Jul 2009what the price of this phone ?gum mobile in the uk is £230
Canada, 10 Jul 2009Thanks Julie. How do you like using the phone? Do you find it similar to the Nokia 6300? ... moreI love using the phone, much better than 6300. Im in the uk so not sure about canada.
Julie, 10 Jul 2009None of this phones keypad are touch, its a normal mobileThanks Julie.
How do you like using the phone? Do you find it similar to the Nokia 6300?
Only reason I ask is because I have never like using a phone as much as the 6300, and I really hope that the 6700 is very similar.
And would you happen to know when it will be released in CAnada?
