Nokia 701 Photo Glory, Buyers Choice or Not

Phones Review Quickie: So many smartphones are being released at the moment with many more to come, and this is why we are sitting here thinking what the fate of Nokia is. Is the Nokia 701 handset good enough as an option for customers to buy? Below we have the main specifications and photos of the phone being unboxed.

The Nokia 701 may have some photo glory, but is this handset a buyer’s choice or not? Only you can be the judge of that.

Thanks to TechNet they have a hands-on review and unboxing pictures of the Nokia 701, the Nokia 701 aka Helen as many are calling it comes with Symbian Belle and is now shipping, just like the Nokia 700.

The Nokia 701 has the best specs compared to the 700 for example, main features on the 701 include built-in NFC support, 1GHz processor, 3.5-inch ClearBlack Display, 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, 8GB of on-board storage and of course Symbian Belle operating system.

The pictures shown below do look great, but something tells me that the Nokia 701 is not going to be a head turner, there are too many great smartphones being released for this to even be considered a great contender for buying power. Sorry to be negative but this handset is not jumping out at us, maybe Nokia should send us one so that we can give it Phones Review loving.

Do you want iOS, Android, Windows or Symbian? We know that iOS or Android will be favoured due to experience, but please do tell us if we are wrong.

Please check out the Nokia 701 unboxing photos below, and once again wish to say a big thanks to TechNet (Google Translate). You can also see the Nokia 701 video below as well courtesy of YouTube.

  1. Isn’t it preposterous that Nokia would expect people to buy their latest
    soon “unsupported OS Symbian” ? First they announce that they are giving up Symbian then they tell us that they are going to embrace windows phone 7.
    Now here comes a symbian belle !

    Do they take customers to be fools ? ( no wonder their sales are plunging )
    lol !

  2. Symbian will be supported until 2016 … the average cell phone life span is 2 to 3 years. Nokia can continue to market Symbian based phones for another 2 years with full support for the life of the phones. On top of that it allows for the development of the OS just in case Windows Mobile 7 and 8 turn out to be bad dogs that chew up the carpet.
