I am a Nokia fan and I will be forever. During time I had almost all Nokia phones, and many of them I kept, let's say for a collection. All my phones worked well and all of them are still working, from the old 3310 till my acctual Nokia phones I am using. I have a E52 and a N8 which come with me everyday in my pocket and recently I bought the 701. Another superb phone, very solid build quality and it feels great in my hand. It has such a ballanced weight and it feels great with the matterials from which it is built. After FP1 update it runs even better and Nokia Belle is so great. I am a Symbian fan and I love this OS. It is so simple in my oppinion and runs so smoothly and as I am used to Nokia phones for so many years, the interface of the OS is just how it should be. Everything is there and everything is how all Nokia users are used to. Easy navigation and such a simple structure of the menus and submenus.
Compared to the N8, the 701 feels better, somehow it is more comfortable in the hand because of its shape. It is the best phone from Nokia next to the N8.
It is so sad the Nokia took that stupid decision of starting the partnership with MS and WP is not a success. And in my oppinion it will not be. For example I don't like WP and the interface of the Windows OS, Symbian is 100 times better and so simple with so less resources to be used from the phone. Many of my friends have already Android Phones and Iphones. Maybe Android and iOS are in some parts a bit more flexible, but the quality of the phones are not there. Let's just take the Galaxy S2 with the plastic body which is pointless.
Nokia should somehow keep the Belle updating and improving because Nokia has the best quality in phones and best durability regarding the handsets. I do hope Nokia will revive and leave its problems behind, and even if they keep WP, DON'T KILL SYMBIAN and DON'T KILL ALL OF YOUR FANS who still love your products.
PS: Buy the 701, it is superb. At least till it is available and Nokia still manufactures superb phones. And let's hope they somehow will go on and do what they know to do best...true phones.
lexy, 15 Jul 2012after downloadin from ovi store..i notice dt my fone restart serverally..and was thinking its ... moreYou should do a soft reset by typing *#7370# and watch that it will shut down and after a few minutes it will start automatically.
But keep in mind that it will delete every thing installed by u in phone or mass memory. So keep a back up on pc or memory chip. Your contacts will also b deleted.....u can sync contacts on nokiya synk and whenever u need u need them ucan download tophone by the same sync.
I want to ask that which is best in nokia 700 and nokia 701. What are their actual prices. Is there a hanging problem in both stated mobiles. Please reply soon.

It's an excellent phone and i have been using this phone since 3 months but the only problem is that it hangs a lot
this is one of the best nokia phone..from my personal experience of 9 months there is no laggy performence,having good battery backup(even after 9 month usage cycle) After Fp1 update..become faster and faster ..i m currently using more than 120 apps (30 games + 35 utilities +20 music app + 12 social + rest entert. apps ) with 12 themes installed . real internal memory usage (C:319mb E: 6.2GB) not like written 8gb and giving 4gb user usage)
Unique feature - FM txmitter , Maps (once updated need not require heavy data usage), easy pc interface , real OTA update (work with both GSM service & wifi ),1.3 ghz cpu (which not even in comparable price smphone ) ......................avg but not bad thing is speaker volume (ultimate in earphones)...........
this review is not based on specification but hands on experience (& for currently buying users)
