Nokia 700 - Pocket-lint

 

A lovely little phone. It's a bit small for the larger fingers, but even if you have fat fingers like us, the phone still manages to understand what you're

Lovely hardware, small and light, great screen, superb call quality, microSD slot, great battery life

Too small for larger human fingers, camera is rubbish

The 700 isn't perfect, but it's a reasonably likable phone. If you're app mad, then you'll want to avoid it. If you're looking for a good, solid phone, then it's probably idea.

Nokia 700 review

 

The thin Nokia 700 is certainly a tiny smartphone, but is it packing much hardware in that skinny frame?

Beautifully crisp and responsive ClearBlack screen ; Sleek, discreet design and comfortable in the hand ; Solid, quality build ; Wi-Fi and 3G ; Symbian Belle is quick and didn't lag

No social networking integration ; QWERTY touchscreen keyboard is a little difficult to use in portrait mode ; Lacks really decent apps in the Ovi store ; Screen's a tad too small ; Unable to use your own headset

Nokia claims it's the smallest smartphone ever. Is that because there's nothing to the 700?

Excellent screen, Great build quality, Comprehensive video support

Limited app support, Ropey camera, Symbian OS is still limited

Nokia 700 review

 

The Nokia 700 is a neat little smartphone with a solid and tidy physical design. At just 92g in weight and overall measurements of 110x50x9.7mm it may appeal if you want your smartphone to fit into a small pocket and like the idea of being able to...

The fact that the smartphone basics are catered for mean the Nokia 700 has decent functionality. However, it may be that bit too small to pass muster as a usable handset, and Symbian 10.1 feels distinctly hampered by a lack of third-party app support.

Nokia 700 Review

 

Nokia is billing the 700 as the smallest smartphone with a customisable homescreen, it's also one of the latest handsets to be running Symbian Belle, the latest version of the company's operating…

Fantastic build quality ; Great screen ; 1Ghz processor ; Symbian tweaks improve user experiance

Typing can be hard on the small screen ; Limited apps ; Some actions take too long to complete

Nokia 700 review

 

We review the Nokia 700, a Symbian Belle handset from Nokia that may not live up to the standards of a smartphone, but tries to fit in

Small and pocket friendly, Great hardware design, Bright, clear, sharp screen

Slightly laggy at times, Not enough third party apps, Screen dimensions aren’t ideal, For all its updating Symbian feels out of data at times

The Nokia 700 is quite a step forward, but we aren’t sure how much life is really left in Symbian as an OS, and we found the handset a little laggy at times

Nokia 700 review -

 

Sharp screen, decent web experience, NFC capability

Lack of apps, only 2GB of storage, Symbian Belle still not as intuitive as Android of iOS

Nokia 700

 

Touted as the "most compact touch monoblock smartphone in the world", the Nokia 700 measures in at tiny 110 x 50.7 x 9.7mm. That's not all it's got going for it, as it's also one of the first handsets to come running Nokia's all-new Symbian Belle OS....

Nokia is also touting the phone as one of the most environmentally-friendly around, thanks to its "extensive use of eco-friendly materials, long battery life and features to minimise battery consumption".

The Nokia 700 is priced at Rs.16,500 (MOP). That’s one hell of a price, considering the Nokia Lumia 710 is selling for a grand cheaper. In a similar price range, you’ve got a range of pretty good Androids also – the Neo V , the DEFY+ , the Xperia...

We've got tiny smartphones and then we have the Nokia 700 - the tiniest of them all. This one comes with Belle on board. Nokia is slowly gaining mileage with their WP7 phones – more with the Lumia 710, than the Lumia 800, but they've still not...
