I just "fight" with people not knowing but bragging about:)). Ok, i'll try to tell you shortly why i like nokia. First off all, i respect the invested experience and quality, i won't sell so easy a brand like nokia for a brand like samsung. Not in milion years. Just because samsung adopted android doesn't mean they make good phones. With 0% mobile experience (in my opinion), how good can their gadgets be. They are also quite cheap, working with cheap materials but at high price just because is android and is an dual-quad-blabla-core... is kind of nasty nasty job. Sgh...sgh2...or3 are below 20$ devices and all the money are based on their system, their cpu and ram. Which this days aren't so expensive>:). this is just the short part o "WHY i wouldn't"...:)
Apart from the hardware, N8 has the best design of all Nokia phones...

lily, 07 Sep 2012hey, i heard that symbian doesn't have enough hd games....thats why i am having second thought... moreWhat do you mean by enough? For some, never is enough. If you wanna buy a phone for playing games i'd say, only for you to be shore that you are not out of games:)), go for sgh2. I won't buy it, but i admit android has more games than symbian, allot more.
sars, 07 Sep 2012thanks again for ur help.about music quality what do u suggest?? does it work on 701? i have a... moreYou are right, a bigger cpu and more ram are not gonna be very noticeable in symbian belle interface, but it would be noticeable in surfing the internet or opening more apps, also in playing games (but... there are plenty hd games, working without problems in n8) The systems are the same, so when comes to music, the quality is the same. Ok maybe better on 701 because of the fp1 which brings Dolby digital. There is also a mod for n8, but i don't know how much Dolby is in that sound. The speakers and headphones are quite the same. I got my n8 packed with wh-701 headset. You, kind of covered them all. So at the end is your choice:). N8 has better camera, hdmi port, better display etc. 701 is newer, and at some points is better, also has nfc (if you need it). I like more the n8 because of the design and the camera, and the anodized alu body(ok, hdmi port and 16gb mem :Dto). To tell you the truth i would give this phone only for it's big brother, 808. The belle fp1 has allot of improvements, more eyecandy UI. Belle refresh is also well done, but it's ui is not changed, only in some apps and has some new widgets. I won't mind having an 701 ider, but i won't give my n8 for one. So, it is only your choice. We cannot choose for you. They are nokia, so both are good devices. You can trust both...so!

what i think is that the better cpu on 701 is not gonna do any better comparing to n8.but maybe fp1 or fp2 is.im confused.thanx again.

But has some disadvantages: mediocre camera, lcd display ( n8 has amoled, way better) smaller mass memory storage (8gb), verry ugly:). I would peek the 701 with n8' camera and design:)). If the camera is not so important to you and it's design doesn't bother you, i recommand 701. But if the camera is more important... N8 does a verry good job at it's age, and with the new belle refresh.

but i need to install office apps and OVI music.
which i'll do later
wat i want to know is. is there any possiblity to add new theme effects on it without hacking with norton?
sars, 03 Sep 2012what im really confused about is which one i should but 701 or n8 and its really enoying me.i am also in the same confusion but i brought the nokia n8 and now i am very happy with my decision. 701 has the worst camera and sound. It only get the cpu & ram improvement. If you want a multimedia or camera phone let stay with n8. If you prefer speed & ui over these its best to buy any android phone.

franco miguel, 06 Sep 2012hi carol you mentioned that when doing hard reset on belle have the chance to down to 200mb... moreI try to believe that you are not making fun of and will tell you how to do a hard reset (for the sake of other people who are curious to). All you have to know is that you will lose allot of apps that are preinstalled in C drive and some of them are hard to get back(maps, adobe, quickoffice, photo/video editor, nokia store, etc.) hard reset is recommended only if your phone does not boot up anymore. So, the method: turn the phone off. Now, keep menu button-camera key-volume key down, pressed all together. Keep them pressed while turn on the phone (if it's hard to do this, than ask someone to turn on the phone for you). Keep them pressed until the phone boots up and ask for your country etc. Remember you will lose everything so backup first.
