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).
love my 701. So far im satisfied it n0 matter what os is. It is important u satisfied ur gadget if u love android go for it.but symbian smart device is more friendly used than d robot os. U can INSTALL A FREE NET VIA OPERA MINI not only wifi to use to browse internet. Thats it..

Push, 16 Jan 2012Hi Friends, I am confused in between Nokia 603 & Nokia 701; which one to buy? Kindly help... moreDisplay is highly subjective,both iphone and nokia 701 uses same technology for display its ips lcd with cbd.os superiority does not only depends on,no of apps,it also depends on other features.In terms of battery life,real multitasking and security/privacy symbian is ahead of android,so if os fullfil ones need its best os for him/her but not for all.
melalert, 16 Jan 2012man your saying that the 296ppi density is cannot be seen by your naled eye??marketing strateg... moreRetina display in iphone is for resolution,apple uses same technology for display as nokia,it is ips lcd with clear black technology,apple is paying royalty fee to nokia for this.Anything apple does is presumed great even it uses same technology as nokia,and considered bad anything nokia does.Internet speed not only depend on network but also on phone which class of edge it support especially on 2g.Retina display is just fancy name for not so special features(you can tell both nokia 701 and ray have retina display which is resolution or ppi which can hardly noticed by naked eye),which apple gives for all its features like facetime which nothing but video calling which nokia phone had almost for a decade.
hai guys i am using nokia 5233 which site i am downloading hd games please tell me
Push, 16 Jan 2012Hi Friends, I am confused in between Nokia 603 & Nokia 701; which one to buy? Kindly help... moreHi. I had the same dilemma.... 603 or 701. I finally decided for 701 and got it. Buddy for just 3k extra you get a big 8MP cam(instead of 5MP), dual flash, front cam, 8 GB internal memory (instead of 2 GB) and overall a really SOLID build in comparison to cheap plasticy build of 603. Don't miss the 701. Go for it.

Internet speed depends not only on service provider but also on handset wat class of edge it support especially if ur using 2g.

Guys i hv 701, but believe me, xperia ray is much better phone compare to 701 everything except screen size which ray has smaller screen, so go for ray with full support from sony and google with its new os i.e. ice cream sandvich

last 2 years nokia realy disapointed me too.
due to symbian 5th hanging and freezing issues.
last nokia's mobile i used c7 it is good phone.
symbian anna and belle shows that nokia is trying to reach our requirments.
now nokia is rising again due to lumia 800,900 and N9.
While me switched on android and purchased galaxy
its is good software but not as i heared by the peoples.
ANDROID Also hangs phone restart auto maticaly when i use some normal applications even i formated and flashed and updated the software.
GPS and navigation is my jobs requirment
so i found nokia is better and i am planing to go fo \nokia again only i am waiting for the viber and skype video calling. which i could not make at galaxy i9003. when i make call on yahoo my glaxay restarts.

Even reviewers confessed that this phone is faster than... morelolz. u r telling that nokia 701 is better then ray. do u have checked ray at least one time. I also like nokia but ray is far superior then this . u r telling that its IPS screen is clearer then ray. but once compare both side by side u must say that ray has far superior , crisp and clear screen then this with 297ppi which is directly compared to iphone 4s .and powered with sony bravia tech. which is awesome.
secound I like nokia but not their os . symbian is fail againest android. very light os. and boaring.
xperia ray able to play most of all HD games and all apps present in android market.
I checked both side by side . coz my frnds have both these two handset. and I must say ray is great in terms of camera, sound,screen,os.
I am one of Nokia's biggest fan but I am not happy with what all Nokia is doing these days.they are not working towards the demand of the customers.recently they've launched windows phones which makes no sense in mobile consumer market.they already left symbian development which is not a very good decision. I am happy with their belle release and all others are also happy with the functionality that symbian offers.not like windows,windows is a restricted OS which aims at social networking and web browsing.but there are a lot many things you're leaving behind.windows was never a good choice for Nokia.we don't want windows,we don't want to be different.we want what is best and reliable.we want symbian back with a new name and increased screen resolution or if you are not left with any other choice......then android is 2nd after symbian.why didn't you choose android,,why windows ??people want fun,lot of applications and features at an affordable price.see what samsung is doing,they've launced an affordable android device galaxy Y.android was released in 2008 and became popular in just 2 years creating much hype,,,because nokia phones freezed a lot at that time.I dont know what nokia did in these 2 years.nokia was ruling mobile world for the past 14 years and now samsung is about to overtake Nokia in just 2-3 years,Im afraid a lot and the rising graph of samsung,declining for nokia really made me depressed.nokia never worked on the operating system in these 14 years,,,only one best thing they did in these 2 years was nokia n8 and now belle which they must have done much before.hoping to see Nokia ruling the smartphone world.
hi..mistaknly i have deletd the photo editor of my nokia 701,,,how cud i get it back,, plzzzzz help,,, :( ..thnxx in advance...i
