Nokia 701 Review


Nokia 701 features a 3.5" IPS-LCD display with the ClearBlack technology, which Nokia claims is the brightest smartphone screen out there in terms of nits. So far that crown had been reserved for the LG Optimus Black with its 700 nits, so the Nokia 701 should be even brighter, which would make for better sunlight visibility, so we can't wait to get one and test it outside. The Nokia 701 actually looks a lot like a more compact Nokia C7 at the front, has the same 8MP fixed focus cam with flash and 8GB of onboard memory, but it is powered by a 1GHz processor, and has a 11 x 56.8 x 117.3mm body with 4.62oz (131 grams) of weight. The battery is rated for close to 9 hours of talk time in 3G mode, which sounds pretty good, and the phone is pentaband.

Still using it in 2015, best Symbian after 808
Phone owned for more than a year

having this phone in 2015, the phone rocks, he is good because it is small, it easily gets in your pocket, its not heavy, and it goes smoothly in the hand, when you take a good research in the symbian you find out that it might be better whan android in some points, you have really good HD games for it, good apps also, a lot of functionality, all in all, this phone can easily be used as a primary phone-it has a lot of memory, good camera, good baterry, its reliable, it has good games, fast internet and almost everything that you might need
