nokia 701 takes ugly photo because of full focus camera,it cant capture ... moreYou are comparing a beast(S2) to a not-so-beast(701) smartphone.I agree to all your points,but the photos from a 701 is way better than,say,an iphone.Fixed focus is not an issue.
S2 is too good to be compared to a 701.Compare it to Galaxy Nexus.
S2,Nexus and 701 rock!!!

nokia 701 takes ugly photo because of full focus camera,it cant capture ... morehe he he a comment from a proud android owner, who just got a new mobile, and needs to convince himself that he had made a good buy thats all...
dont worry what you have bought is always good for you until it start to give problem..
new things will be old in time to come
enjoy your new mobile dear... you r a good samaritan...
i only admire sgs3 more than sgs2 .. even i feel its not for me..
for me symbian phone always give what i want compared to any other os
nokia 701 takes ugly photo because of full focus camera,it cant capture near object or text,take photo from s2 instead u really gonna notice what 8MP actually mean,
front facing camera is VGA(poor quality image not good for video call). For s2 its 2MP front facing camera.
heating problem when browsing internet.
can't find useful apps on symbian as compared to android,skype is not supported on symbian, neither u can find all new apps avaliable now a days on android n IOS.
speaker volume is very low.
i have used this phone for about 4 months.
this mobile is a crap hangs alot and restarting problem.
even after fp1 i have noticed overheating problem.
so i have switched to samsung galaxy s 2 which is the quite better and impressive.
just dont buy this nokia 701 go for samsung u will really enjoy all kinds of apps on andriod.
nokia is already dead.
just compare the specs of nokia 701 n samsung galaxy s 2.

MP d man , 09 Sep 2012Please do 3rd party applications work well on this phone?so far i've tried the 2 apps i've mentioned. they are 3rd party apps produced n made compatible with symbian..
i believe as long as the 3rd party apps comes in .sis format there should not be a problem.
but i dont think i want to install apps created for symbian s60v3 and s60v5 to symbian belle phone although they are in .sis file format too. cos i'm not sure the compatibality.
i tried once installing a game in .jar or .jad files got it from opera market... but i prefer to avoid this type of files too.
- install only .sis apps
- nokia 701 got the installation setting that will check the certificates of the to be install apps ( i think you are familiar with since you own e6 previously)
by the way i'm only to upgrade to fp1 in or two days . cos i just want to feel the original belle. and its a great experience.. and lots of other user mentioned fp1 is a greater experience...
thanks.. hope this helps cheersss.

MP d man , 09 Sep 2012Thanks dear! I know is a matter of ram. But some phones hang naturally like e6. Unless tha... moreDear MP d man,
Although we closed the application, still there hidden file open in the background
(eg apps are:
2) World Psiloc Traveller)
To check this issue i'm using 3rd party task and file manager:
1.SWISS MANAGER PRO downloaded from Cellphonesoft.com
2.Best Taskman downloaded from Smartpohoneware
Both has been installed in my 5800 and 701.
(some people will use xplore, netqin, clean, y-task,y-browser etc)
As i'm typing
> my 5800 shows
Running programs - 2 ie two open apps ie homescreen and pocket lock
Running process - 119 basic items ie the internal and hidden programs used to run its home screen,clock, autolock, telephony, touchinput, signal and so on to keep the phone alive.
Running threads - 197 items. this are completely hidden
> my 701 shows
Running programs - 4 ie two open apps ie homescreen and pocket lock and another two is screensaver and fsmailserver.
Running process - 153item ie the internal and hidden programs used to run its home screen,clock, autolock, telephony, touchinput, signal and so on to keep the phone alive.
Running threads - 315 items. this are completely hidden
so when you opened your fav apps, more running process and threads will be activated resulting ram consuming..therefore your phone starts to slow down and then when its too much to handle by the processors its start
-to give message "memmory full"
-your phone will shut your running apps
-your phone will restarts
-or else if the processor is jammed your phone will freeze.
so to manage the above problems,this is where the 3rd party task manager is important to me.
the built in file manager (by pressing and holding menu key) will only show the opened apps but wont show details of ram consumed by individual running apps and hidden files that running or left running after you've closed your apps.
for eg. i prefer to used opera mini than opera mobile cos opera mobile will consumed more ram. the internal web browser also consumed lots of ram.
last time when i installed the spb mobile shell in my 5800 in consumed more than 20 mb of ram while opened leaving me less than 25% of ram to operate other apps.
nowadays i 've more than 40% of ram ie 40mb to play with in my 5800 and currently 57% of ram ie 288mb to play with in my 701..
when i newly bought my 701 it running on 297mb of ram and after installing few apps it drop to 288mb..
this also mean installed apps especially those with autostart will consumed ram.. since more ram will used to run the hidden process.
Try avoid installing junk apps.
these hidden process will also eat up your battery...so you can see why people are complaining their mobile is power hungry.
my three year old 5800 still use its original battery and still give about 2 days of usage which is normal for a smatphone.
in 701 i noticed that its the 6 homescreen will eat the batt. and worst if you place live widgets on it.so just reduced your homescreen and avoid too many or unnessary widgets on it.
go to "allaboutsymbian.com" for tips& trick of your mobile. there are reviews about 701, symbian belle and bell fp1 too..
well thanks for reading hope this helps and...
