Here is a little review of this phone from me :)
-the browser improves alot, with it's text reflow it is now easy to read text. Fast panning..But sometimes it is a bit clunky with heavy pages. But overall it is a good browser now.
- i love the UI now. Im in love with the UI with it's eye candy :) and it is very smooth :)
- good battery backup it lasted 2 days on me. regular texting only. Im using 2G mode only. Never tried on 3G mode
- Good reception/signal
- No Lag on HD Games.
- Good Camera, even though other says that EDoF camera is a bad camera. But im just a regular guy, i want to take a snap and i get a good picture :)
- Less apps on Nokia Store. I hope developer's will support Symbian Platform..
it's the only cons that i notice on this phone.
But in the end it's your preference that really matters.
Sorry for my bad english. I'm not a native.
i brought nokia 701 3days ago,...nice ph , very fast , belle os is good,camera is fine...everythings is very good.i am very happy with this,my first smartphone.
But i faced one problem to playing video,some video videos are playing very good,display is osum! But some videos plays but says 'audio not supported',some mp4 r plays some plays only audio.i load some movie,but it says file corrupt :(
not know wht to do,without this video prblm everythings is okey....
Nokia 701 is a very good phone.But the asking price for the phone is way too high.With that money,lets say even lesser you get phones like Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo...I'm a very big Nokia fan,always used one and thats why I share my View..
.Never the less Nokia is Dumping Symbian anyways...Saying To continue support Symbian untill 2016 is just a formality...and switching to Windows phone 7 wont be fruitful for Nokia either,atleast for me.So I'm unwantingly moving on to other OS...and if anybody says I'm a Nokia hater and putting false impression on the brand,I dont know what I'm gonna do,I'ma get real violent...cuz I'v used Nokia phones all my life...and don't talk about N9,the OS is already dead even before seeing this world.
Nokia is acting Dumb,dumping Symbian...and Dont blame Symbian.Nokia could've introduced Symbian^3 long before when other OS's were buckling up,but no they were lazy enough not to do that and now with Symbian Belle when they are right on track...Symbian is on the way out
This device is true value for money.got it 7 days back and what a performance.fast and better than every device in the same range.Nokia has done itthis time.Many of my frd are already bookig the same.I didn't get any issues which some are raising.i think they are jealous android fans.

PSANDEE, 17 Oct 2011os gosh !! is it a virus attack ! my mobile started to restart on its own to fix the problems ... morethis could be an issue due to corrupt system files or settings mismatched. you can hard reset your 701 by just typing *#7370#. hard reset restore your phone operating system , it format your phone c drive and delete all data from your phone. to hard reset your phone press
*#7370#. after typing this code. the phone will ask to confirm reset, of you confirm than press yes.
important: hard reset erase all data from phone and memory card, so don't forget to back up your data before hard reset..probably this would solve your problem...reply me aftewards

Hi guys.. im planning to buy this 701. can u tell me which is better? 701 or samsung galaxy s2? and what are the problems u encountered w/ this headset. tnx for ur reply.
Please read about yellow tint problem on Galaxy S2 screen.
Wow.Just had this phone yesterday,and what a performance.it rocks.Even leaves much higher speces Galaxt S2 in shades with its speed.Actually buggy android os on GS2 is too bad.It shows sign of lag many times and eats battery badly.at times galaxy feels hot like heater.My 701 is very good at battery life with symbian belle.It gives all the functionalites of other oses with much better speed and battery life.
I played many hd games on this,what speed.it truly rocks in games.it is like dream.
Also i have compared its screen to galaxy's.Galaxy's screen has got yellow tint problem.For this problem on galaxy's screnn type yellow tint problem and search on google.
Seems like nokia is finally listening to us.
I love what I am seeing, better processor (greatest achievement), ROM n RAM capacity improved.
Nokia this is simply sweet and the 3.5 screen is just the best, well for mobile phones.
I will have to use this phone before commenting on the camera quality for I am not a fan of nokia when it comes to camera... Reason... My 3.2mp samsung galaxy gio is far brighter, sweeter, ... than my nokia x6 16g 5mp. Even when the later has flash led n the formal has not.
More if u want to buy this phone don't let what u see here discourage u, if u are careful in handling phone, u probably will never complain. I remember I almost did not go for nokia x6 because of what I read here...
N well lets hope this is not costly.
just took delivery of mine & i've been rocking it since. it's fast & responsive enough for me.
nokia should seriously look for a hardware designers!!!! the only phone that looks good is the n9 mmmm maybe the 5oo!!! 701 could have been a very good choice if it had a nice & actually new design and if they want it to sell millions they should put android in it ( i don't know if this is possible!!) anyway good luck nokia!!
hey u all people its one of greatest phone after nokia those who r planing buyng new phone go for nokia 701 its great phone
