After reviewing the first of three new Symbian Belle powered smartphones, Nokia 700, we shift our paradigm towards the best of them all i.e Nokia 701. Nokia 701 also runs the same Belle operating system and has 1GHz processor as its powerhouse. The Near Field Communications Functionality is also present in the Nokia 701 and it’s fun to use.
So far, Nokia 701 have the brightest screen with 1000 nits beating Nokia E6 (900 nits) in its own backyard. Compared to others like LG Optimus Black, Nokia 701 has 50 percent brighter outside. Nokia 701 could be tough competitor for the latest Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray in terms of pricing.
In terms of design, Nokia 701 too comes in metallic body which we have seen in Nokia 700. Nokia 701 also has the same angular edges we found in Nokia 700 and you will get a feeling in some time that Nokia 701 looks similar to Nokia C7. Nokia 701 features a bright 3.5-inch ClearBlack Display which also has the IPS panel LCD. You can found the same Gorilla Glass Technology here which was used in Nokia 700 which means Nokia 701 do offers a good viewing angles and strong scratch resistant glass. The display of Nokia 701 offers a 640 x 360 pixels resolution which is highly responsible for three best things you will find in it- high and good brightness, vibrant colors, and amazing text. Nokia 701 also works beautifully under the direct sunlight.
Moving further, you can find the volume button on the left side with a Voice Command activator button in the center. The dedicated camera button is place on the bottom left and just above it you will find a spring lock button. The 3.5mm audio port is between the power button and micro-USB slot. And just a FYI here, Nokia 701 does not support USB-on-the-Go function.
We highly praised the new UI of Belle series Smartphone previously and we will continue the praise with Nokia 701. We have already covered the features which Belle delivers but we will like to remind the new notifications area and we were indeed impressed. The home screens are spectacular and it becomes more spectacular with the inclusion of widgets and improved navigation. The touch screen of Nokia 701 is responds well when you work and play games on it.
Nokia 701 features an 8 megapixel camera with fixed focus and capable of recording 720p HD videos at 30 fps. The camera of Nokia 701 does click brilliant images with the help of dual LED flash. The real shame here is the lack of auto-focus in the video shooting mode and it has a “VGA!!” camera in the front for video calling. You will not be able to watch HD quality videos on it as it has a Broadcom GPU chip with 128 MB RAM. Nokia 701 also offers FM Radio and FM Transmitter.
