Nokia is the best in providing the best value for money. Nokia 701 is selling like hot cakes too. I too could have gone for it but below are the reasons why I didn't.
1. The OS: Symbian is dead. It's completely obsolete against android. Symbian lacks the customizable ability of android. Can't put gpu to good use in the UI. And it has almost no developer support.
2. Screen resolution: 640x360 is totally old school now. Web browsing is not fully enjoyable in it. Neither is watching photos and videos.
3. Application support: Now this is a MAJOR issue. Symbian is supposed to be killed by 2016. But recently it was decided that the day might be much sooner. Say.....2013. Nokia already has given up symbian to a different software company for support. All these contribute to keeping developers away from symbian.
3. Hardware acceleration: Have you ever wondered WHY no one has made a universal video player for symbian yet? Unless your phone supports it, no other video formats gonna play. Converting videos is old school now. Nokia 701 has enough hardware to play any video format under 720p but just because there is no hardware acceleration under Symbian...... no other video except MP4, AVI, FLV and 3gp gonna play.
So......I decided to go for Neo V. My earlier phone was a symbian s60v5. I know how the screen resolution feels. nHD is not what a 16k phone should offer. If only the hardware of 701 was combined with android, we would have had one amazing device.
But again......the hardware prowess of 701 falls short compared to Neo V's Snapdragon CPU with Adreno 205. 701 gpu is half the power of Adreno 205.
So. 701 is for those who wants a boring device and Neo V is for those who wants their phone to be cool looking, made for gaming and media, and be a full fledged web browsing machine.
p.s: Someone rate this.....XD
I am Xperia Neo V owner from past 3 months, and noticed a small problem with its HD Video. It is giving only 25 FPS !!! I have confirmed it with many Softwares. So the video on TV is jerky. Clarity of details captured is also less. But, Still pictures are of good quality. Overall very dissapointed.

Sony Ericsson got better lenses with Continuous Auto-Focus, Image Stabilization and much more. Does Nokia have this all?
Sony Ericsson Neo V is better than Nokia 701 in case of Screen Resolution; Neo V got 265ppi but Nokia 701 just have 210ppi =D
I am a prospective Android user and it could be the first android device for me.Is it certain that this device gets updated to V4.0? are there any planned dates around this? Do I need to pay extra for the upgrade.
Also can someone tell me if there would be large differences between V2.3 and V4.0 except for the number of applications?

5 days if you let it idle (totally not use it).
