Beautifully crisp and responsive ClearBlack screen
All in all, it's a lovely phone for someone who wants to dip in and out of smart phone capabilities without losing either the phone element or most of their pocket space.
It's a discreet smartphone, one for a businessperson perhaps, who doesn't want to pull out an obnoxiously large piece of kit every time they want to make a call.
Comprehensive video support
With a top-quality Gorilla Glass screen and part-metal build, the Nokia 700 instantly feels like a top-quality device. The display carries this on too, using a great AMOLED panel. Sure, it's a smaller phone than many but hardware wise it almost seems surprising how you can get this handset for free on contracts of £20 or less. However, all becomes clear when using the phone as it's limited by the constraints of Symbian, with disappointing app support.
Superb call quality
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 typing, most of the time. The build quality and design are second to none, and although Symbian is far from perfect, Nokia has tweaked it to the point where it's more than usable on a touchscreen.
Fantastic build quality
The Nokia 700 is a solid addition to Nokia's line-up, it's small, stylish and speedy, with a great screen. However, some may find it a little too small and Nokia's app store still lags behind rivals, in choice compared to the Xperia Ray. However, this is still a solid mid/high-end smartphone.
In short, the Nokia 700 occupies a spot in-between featurephone and smartphone, both in Nokia's own line-up and the market as a whole. If your priorities are staying connected without staying tethered to a mains socket, making occasional forays onto the web and all in something that won't dominate your pocket or purse, then the Nokia 700 could well be the first Symbian device we'd suggest you consider.
Cheap but capable handset with pleasant design
Overall, the world's largest phone maker by volume has trimmed specs from the right places to arrive to its new entry-level Symbian star, the Nokia 500. The lack of LED flash and the basic video capture capabilities of the 5MP camera module seem to be the main victims that fell in the quest for a low-end pricing. Others, like less RAM and smaller battery we can live with, as they don't affect usability that much besides, the update to Symbian Belle will speed the interface up significantly.
Nokia 500 carries the impressive list of the functional and innovative features including 5MP camera with high 2592x1944 pixels resolution counts, geo-tagging and VGA video recording option, 3G network connectivity for fast internet experience, Wi-Fi/GPRS/EDGE internet connectivity features, WAP & HTML browser for unlimited web surfing, basic data exchanging Bluetooth & USB connectivity, Stereo FM radio, Multiple audio file supported media player (like MP3, WAV, eAAC+, WMA), advanced...

The Nokia X7 brings a much anticipated overhaul of the Symbian platform, but even with Anna, Nokia's platform UI and performance seems a year or even more behind rivals like Android and iOS. The Finns also fail to deliver contemporary hardware with a sub-par 680MHz CPU and only 256MB of RAM on the Nokia X7, which seem to be the main reasons behind its sometimes slightly laggy performance.
OLED-powered contrast ratio
There are nice things we can say about the Nokia X7. It has good hardware design, a basically pleasing screen and good battery life. And Symbian Anna is a step in the right direction.But we just aren't sure where Anna is headed in the long term, and that alone could make the Nokia X7 a blind alley. And it doesn't do anything supremely well.
Large 4-inch AMOLED display
Nokia has a good track record for making great hardware and the X7 will probably be a beneficiary of that, too. A factor that may put off potential buyers is the Symbian software. Nokia has already publicly embraced Windows Phone 7 as its primary smartphone platform, so it is natural to think that Symbian would take a back seat when it comes to improvements and developer support
There's no denying it, Nokia is a class act, capable of delivering some of the best-looking handsets around. This metal-cased phone is well-designed and has great build quality. There are lots of features, all handled well and Nokia's ability to make a smartphone run for a decent length of time should not be underestimated. In many ways, this is a simply terrific phone, if a bit on the large side.
Superb battery life
While you can get mobile phones for a tenner, unless you have a total disinterest in quality, style and range of function, the Nokia C1-01 is undoubtedly worth its slightly higher price tag. The low spec camera aside, the C1-01 has several features you simply don't expect at this price point, including a very good keypad, stereo Bluetooth and a Micro SD slot. The impressive call quality, strong signal reception and Biblical battery life are the icing on the cake.
