Nokia 700 review
December 26, 2011
The Nokia 700 is one of the first phones to come preloaded
with the Symbian Belle operating system. It boasts a super-crisp AMOLED display
backed by Nokia’s ClearBlack technology which increases screen quality and shows
great sunlight legibility. Sized at 3.2" and powered by a 1GHz processor, it’s able to please those
who like to chat, take photos, play music and browse the web at the same time.
The Nokia 700 is dynamite in a small package.
Key features of the Nokia 700:
Slim 9.7mm body
16M-colour nHD ClearBlack AMOLED capacitive touchscreen (220 ppi); Gorilla
fixed-focus camera with LED flash; geo-tagging, face detection, smart zoom in
Symbian Belle OS

Nokia 700 user-interface (UI):
If Nokia was a
car, Windows Phone would be the driver and Symbian Belle the co-pilot as their
operating systems are both are geared in the same direction. The main elements
of the Belle update are the homescreen, menu and general polish of the
interface. You get six home screens, each of which can have its own wallpaper and can be deleted at any time. The flow between screens is
looped, much like a cube, so that you don’t have to scroll back and forth – simply
swipe right/left to return to the first home screen.
Small in size and
big on features, the Nokia 700 is fluid and efficient in any task. This little
device boasting a wealth of features is a definite consideration for Nokia and
Symbian fans. The Belle update is a major step-up in Symbian’s league, making
the operating system competitive once again and a possible threat to iOS and
