Carol, 01 Jan 2013Ok, let's see, you seem a nice guy who will try to answer to me, on some simple questions:D. I... moreI remember some 701 users reporting problems on nokia disscussions forum regarding WLAN (auto disconnect), then soon a WLAN update was rolled out that solved the problem. But in your case, Well you seem to have Strange problem, I mean not a phone-model specific problem (WLAN), may be a manufacturing defect. As In my phone Wlan works Smooth, Even i've Transfered Lots of files to and from my Windows Pc using "MyExplorer" via Wlan, no issues.
Well as far my daily use and the phone's performance In every aspect I'm pretty much Satisfied Except (Still) Camera(Fixed Focus) because i usually shoot Macros (Close Shots). I need to adjust the Phone at proper distance, otherwise If I get closer i get blurry Images.
Now talking About Pros And Cons.
I think this Phone has Little cons than Pros.
Superb Gaming, Although lesss games available as compared to Android.
Superb 720p - HD Recording with continuos Video light, great even indoors.
Superb Multitasking. - A Symbian legacy Feature, that I'm Addicted to.
Cool looks, Beautiful widgets, Multiple Home screens, fluid Interface, Very fast response.
IPS LCD, best outdoor performance, even in minimum Brightness settings, - really the brightest smartphone in the world.
A good video player, supports wide range of codecs.
Best Audio player, Dolby Digital Headphones - Exceptional.
Exceptional third party apps - A little tweaking is needed for some apps.(Hacking - for certificate errors) Full tutorial is here http://www.n8fanclub.com ...
and much more pros to say regarding overall perfomance,,,,,,,,..
Good battery backup.
1) Fixed focus camera, although not too bad, but capturing text for OCR, usually disappoints.
2) No third party Video Player like CORE PLAYER or MX player.
3) Third party apps are few and Don't expect much increment in the coming days as the Symbian platform is now Officially to be discontinued from 2016.

man, 02 Jan 2013guys.. im confused help me plz! which is the most better phone? 701 or the incoming lumia 620?... moreDepending what you like, symbian or wp? I say that this phone is great. I worked with it and feels superb. BUT i have this problem with wlan now... ok not i, my girl... but, i don't think it is a general issue. I just think that i had some bad luck and will take it back. Hopefully they will have another one. I say hopefully cause it is very rare... hard to find. I got off the shelf...:(
malangnya, 02 Jan 2013Hi Carol, on the signal strength.. the manual shows that the antenna located at upper ri... moreHey, thank you for your reply. In fact those antennas are for Mobile Network signal. Gps/wlan antenna is in the same upper area but is a bit larger. With Operator Network signal i see no problem, it's powerful as all Nokia's. Also with the fm transmitter, no issue. I didn't test it's gps reception though. So, finally, i didn't quite understand if, your wlan signal strength (but only wlan signal) goes down radically while holding your phone in landscape, and you lose coverage or not? I said also before, i occur "Mobile data off, no connection available" quite often...
guys.. im confused help me plz! which is the most better phone? 701 or the incoming lumia 620? plz reply... i counting on it

on the signal strength..
the manual shows that the antenna located at upper right of the phone [on the front cam area and lower bottom (green,menu,red area) which is fully covered by my thumbs in the landscape position]
so maybe thats the reason for your issue.
but actually i dont realised the issue until you mentioned it.. perhaps cos i'm using my 701 with a casing so perhaps the signal managed to slip through my fingers ..ha ha ha
although some ppl said its great...i'm still on fp1 cos neg-ve opion on fp2 (last para of Rather Sultan's post confirms this i believe)...
ok hope this helps..
