Probably the best phone i have ever used, i downloaded just the essential apps i use and it meets all my daily needs easily. Its reliable, well made, fast and i can use it for 3 days before it shows ow battery after which it will still run for another hour....
I also have a Samsung modern smartphone and have tried the Nokia 808, but i still choose to use the Nokia 701 as my main phone as it is comfortable in the hand and small enough to fit in my pocket - a great design. Software wise it is falling behind the times with the latest models but some of us just need the basics without having to give up a great camera, reliability, build quality, great battery life and a small size.
I just wish this was made with a faster 3G data speed and an auto focus camera and then it would be perfect.

701 is an excellent phone 3 years back when android is just evolving in the market. but it is the intermediate between feature phones and smartphone.
Beware these Apps:
Sadly, I have to report my phone has developed 'reboot' issue. Symptoms: every 4 to 7 hours, phone reboots, other times locks up with 'out of memory' error- only way out, remove battery for 10secs, then restart. I read a blog another user had same problem. The problem with the Nokia store (I have never been to the new 'opera' store) is user feedback cannot be modified once comment/ rating is created. Many users cannot warn others if an app is malfunctioning after a few days. So, this rebooting problem started after installing one or another of these apps-I don't remember- so I recommend to readers INSTALL one by one, try for a few days. (Those marked with X immediatly show 'tiks' with the 701) -Smart Notes Full(V.1.2), -X-QR Creator(V1.0.0),-Whatsapp(V2.11.609), -X- Swype(V1.0.19197), -X- Double LED Waves(V1.3.0) -Belle Extra Buttons (V4.0.0),-X-Thumb Nail Folders Ads (V1.6.0) -GPS Scout(V1.0.0),-X- Clipbook(Manager)(V1.1.0).
No more Nokia store? Fine, I will just keep using my phone with apps installed for a few more years.Note that since circa June, 2014, Whatsapp stopped working on my phone even after the 'upgrade to new version' prompt. Nokia service would probably fix this reboot issue, in a jiffy- we'll see, maybe in a few months.
South India users beware, regional language web pages not supported so characters appear appear as 'boxes'. Features I like about this phone, the lanyard loop- called phone tag in India (like employee name tag, with no chance of dropping the phone), that allows me to carry it around my neck, the built in voice recorder (could improve by saving files as YYyyMMmmmDDhhMM.nnnn.etc -where nnnn is the existing sequence number, yes, its nice to quickly view the date/time of recording), then, gorilla glass(not a single scratch on the screen, 3YEARS LATER!)
I use this phone many years. It is very good device, but skype doesn't want to work. And battery very fast discharges when I use internet. Touchscreen works excellent, if hands are dry.
used for 4 years. stop using from 16 July this year. I faced the problem of touch screen. consulted Nokia care,the people of care sucks.otherwise it is a good phone.

The Nokia 701's battery is literally splendid, it lasts for more than 24hrs if you fully charged it, and it doesn't take too long to recharge it, it even lasts 1h when battery is low, Nokia is doing good at the "Phone surviving skills" . Lol :p
