Nokia has launched its new smart phone, the Nokia 701, complete with a Symbian Belle operating system and a brilliantly lit screen along with many other features at a competitive pricing. So, is this new toy from Nokia’s stable worth it? Let’s find out in the review of Nokia 701.
Nokia 701 Looks:
When it comes to looks, Nokia has not been its usual innovative self of late. In this model also, nothing new has been added as its design has been kept pretty much simple and rounded, though admittedly the metallic slim alloy body adds a pretty good level of attractiveness to it.
But the most catching feature of Nokia 701 is its well lit 3.5” IPS-LCD display, the next gen ‘Clear Black’ display, which seems to be around 3-4 times than the regular ones. The new Clear Black display offers a 160 degree viewing angle, though with a trifling loss of contrast while tilting.
Nokia 701 Key Features:
- 1GHz CPU and 512 MB RAM
- Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- 8GB of inbuilt storage, microSD expandable
- Penta-band 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support
- 720p video @ 30fps recording, stereo sound
- 8 megapixel fixed-focus camera with dual-LED flash and video-call camera; geotagging, face detection, smart zoom in video
- DivX, XviD, H.264 video support
- Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
The operating system being used in Nokia 701 is the Symbian Belle, which is being considered much of an improvement over the previous smart phones by Nokia. However, the size and shape of the icons are pretty much identical and therefore, they may make operating Nokia 701 a bit harder or confusing. Also included is a somewhat basic ‘Voice Recognition Control’ that can execute an array of commands, like changing profile or accessing Radio etc. Plus, its 1 Ghz CPU and 512 MB RAM provides a very decent processing power.
Nokia 701 price in India:
All in all, being priced at around Rs. 19,000/-, Nokia 701 seems to be a considerable option if you are planning to break away from Samsung or iPhone or Android OS.
