Pros: memory, apps and games, look, good flashlight, size, price
Summary: In my life I always had Nokia phones and I was really pleasant with. But with this smartphone Symbian I cannot say I felt comfortable with. Never more Nokia brand, I will go with another brand. Of course this is my guess, maybe some body else still likes Nokia products.
Summary: If you do not need all the latest bells and whistles from Google/Apple, and do not spend most of your time on Facebook and Twitter, this phone might suit your needs, and could save you some money in data charges.
Summary: I bought this phone Christmas 2011 for my wife, the reviews were great and it was the obvious bang for buck for a smartphone if u couldn't afford an iphone 4 or samsung s3, so I really believed I made the right choice.
A very capable smartphone with a very fundamental hardware fault...

Summary: This phone is the second of two Nokia 701 devices that I recently bought (the other one I've returned). I am quite familiar with Nokia's Symbian OS variant, so there was no 'learning curve' in my case. In fact, Symbian's well-known software and hardware efficiency (read: great battery life!
Summary: I must say, this is a great phone, and good value for money. That is, if you are not an i-phone snob or mad into installing thousands of silly apps from Android. Although I still sorely miss a proper update of the E-series phones with a proper keyboard.
Summary: Ive spent a lot of time researching my Nokia options and the 701 is the only phone that really fits my bill. Europe/US compatible and the right OS. I also spent a lot of time contacting the end seller of the phones asking specific questions.
Excerpt: Excellent phone, very good display, nokia clear black display is awesome, however the phone is missing Gorilla glass protection but I m happy with the performance of 701 and I love its hardware configuration. Well done Nokia.
Pros: VIDEO QUALITY, DUAL CAMERA, PROCESSOR 1.3 Gz, BATTERY, SMOOTH TOUCH, READS MY FINGER TOUCH NICELY., Excellent Grip
Cons: Camera zoom, Captured image size is 1.8mb maximum., Sound ( the sound over the headphone with dolby d. plus is superb but without the headphones the sound is less, I hope Nokia will try to do something with the sound factor).
