Video: PhoneArena’s Nokia 700 Review (Symbian Belle)

| December 2, 2011 | 7 Replies

PhoneArena have published their video and written review of the Symbian Belle packing Nokia 700.

  • Overall they’re pretty pleased with the compact, slim design of the Nokia 700 – very easy to hold and pleasure to look at
  • Clear black display very nice saturated colours, great contrast and very decent viewing angles. PPI of 220 apparently very good too.
  • Symbian Belle talked about before (in 701) and hardware noted as identical (in terms of running the phone).
  • They say it’s enough for fluid scrolling and swiping throughout the interface – the only delay being on widgets and starting a heavy app.
  • Portrait keyboard not very comfortable to type on but landscape very ergonomic.
  • Belle browser fluid enough, but pinch zooming is choppy compared to other mid-range handsets – otherwise a pretty functional browser.
  • No full Adobe flash, so no flash games or streaming videos from certain flash sites, otherwise decent browser.
  • Photo editor, pretty rich functionality as does camera.
  • Pictures way too out of focus and not enough detail. Close ups as expected from full focus, colour representation is accurate and good exposure.
  • 720p video is very fluid though a lot of artefacts, darker than actual scene and decimating detail.
