Using it for 3 months. Why I chose Nokia 701 instead of others (Samsung Galaxy S2 especially)
1) Size - just nice size as a phone
2) Price - Much cheaper
3) Battery - Symbian >> Android
4) Nokia built more robust (proven in so many models)
(I accidently drop mine many times)
5) Very seldom hang/freeze
6) Less virus attack vs android
7) Best screen for outdoor (almost 50% we outdoor)
8) Free map all over the world (you name the country)
9) GPS Voice Navigation - no need data
10)I can live without 500 000apps -ovistore got 50 000
(no matter which store 90% of apps are useless)
11)Nokia keep update its software (3 times already
in 3 months of use) - auto trigger through ovisuite
12)Ovistore also auto trigger if your installed apps
got new update
13) Nokia Betalab got some delicious apps
14) This phone got real radio (not via internet)
15) FM transmitter-super cool. Not many phone got it.
Still finding more and learning more about this phone, will update if I find more
europe.nokia.com/find-products/devices/nokia-701/specifications.for those who have doubt about gorilla glass display.
to save batery life on the 701 i found out few triks, first go in general mode disable vibration on tuch, in network mode use gsm, disable nfc also beacouse its always on, lower the brightness on the screen on 30%.
i did this and 1 day more batery life,

Firstly untill 15-20 days back it was mentioned, but i think they have removed it.
batezippi, 22 Dec 2011I would say 710.. simply because WP7 has a proper future..Even though wp future is some what decided does not mean current wp7.5 has no problem in the present form..wp7.5 need to travel long distance to have latest smartphone features of android or symbian..,even its core is based on old windows mobile platform(prone for malware attack eg-latest sms malware which attacked wp7 user)..since wp7 is in premordial form it is better to buy wp7 in future than in present time..nokia belle will gets atleast one major updates apart from many minor updates..also nokia 710 lacks hardware features(like lack of nfc and front facing camera) so even microsoft bring updates it can bring factures to it..
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011Which is would be better for me this 701 or Lumia 710?701 is far better than lumia series.
all the windows phones by nokia lacks front camera which is for video calling.
and the major drawback of this lumia series is that there is no card slot for extra memory.
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011Which is would be better for me this 701 or Lumia 710?Advantage of Nokia 701 over nokia 710 are usb on the go,fm transmitter,front facing camera for video call over 3g,8mp camera(2nd generation edof),faster gpu,divx and avi support, flash support in the browser,file manager with transfer of file via bluetooth,nfc tap for sharing,not heavily dependent on cloud services for minor functions and real multitasking(not just app freezing and switching)....
Advantage of nokia 710 over nokia 701 are faster cpu,better screen resolution and integrated social app..
batezippi, 22 Dec 2011I would say 710.. simply because WP7 has a proper future..i buy the WP phone (nokia 710) in the future then cos... current Window Phone lacks few features compared to nokia 701...
eg: card slot, usb OTG, ....I need these more the autofocus cam.... well its your call....

Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011Which is would be better for me this 701 or Lumia 710?I think , It's for your needs.
if you need face camera and others .
and I think it lumia 710 better than 701 if you don't need face camera because it's WP7 not symbian.
generally it depends on your need .
