ravi.singh, 01 Jul 2014Nokia 701 vs Nokia xlAndroid and much cheaper with poor camera, Microsoft skin on Android, no official Play Store and Google apps installed for XL.
Nokia 701: Much better overall phone with very good clearblack screen and camera, but no Android, no popular apps, extinct Symbian OS!
My advice: Buy a Moto G! It's cheap and very good screen and better phone experience than XL, but on par with the 701.
Or a Moto E, even cheaper!
I bought my NOKIA 701 in March 2012. Now it is 2yrs and some months serving me without disappointment. The problem now is that the lower part of the screen is losing sensitivity meaning taking photos using touch, playing some games, editting photos e.tc are becoming hard. Has anyone got this problem before? How is it fixed? Does changing the screen help?
For all 701 and Symbian users who desperately want to upgrade their Belle OS to something amazing, please don't give up guys. Consider to flash your phone with "Delight Custom Firmware". It's awesome, it's alot better than the Nokia's stockfirmware. Here's the links

Backup with Nokia Suite first! Then install the update again in the Software Update option in Nokia Suite again in PC! Try installing the update twice or do a factory reset and then update via Nokia Suite!
Not recommended updating major updates via OTA for any OS!
Hello. I just in your the same situation. I dont know what to do. If you have any update can you please advice me also. Thank you.
i upgraded my nokia 701 to belle fp2 via fota,right after the upgrade installation my phone starts displying sim card not inserted and restart after few seconds same goes on and on and now it stays in offline mode even after changing sim.
good bye nokia forever,m switching another platform,you have given me the fruit of so many years of loyalty
Heard..They [Nokia] are closing the Symbian OS once and forever, and moving on to Microsoft..
You were once my God Father Mobile Company. The First ever mobile I bought some 9 years back was 1100, then after 2 years I bought 6600, 3 years hence I changed to 5233, 2 years after which I bought 2 mobiles Lumia 610 and Nokia 701. Lumia 610 because, it was a big screen mobile with WP OS, and 701 because it was a marvel with dual SIM, and Belle OS.
Everything now becomes history. Now NOKIA is no more. It will be Microsoft Mobile Oy.
Sad to hear but IT IS THE REALITY.
MISS YOU NOKIA
