Nokia 700 Review: Formerly Known as the World’s Smallest Smartphone… But Plagued By Death Grip (Video)
Nokia 700 received its fair share of TV promotion back in 2011 at the end and now it’s almost antique, but that doesn’t stop us from going into our archives and digging it out. Dubbed “the world’s smallest smartphone”, the handset was very compact and light at the time and pretty well specced.
The device costs about $200 now and it measures 9.7 mm in thickness, plus it weighs a very light 96 grams. Its features include an AMOLED ClearBlack 3.2 inch display with a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels and protected by Gorilla Glass technology. The smartphone has 2 GB of storage, 1 GB of ROM, 512 MB of RAM and a microSD card slot. As far as connectivity goes, you get HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. Sadly, the phone suffers of death grip, as shown in the video review below.
Symbian Belle is the OS running on it and it brought novelty back then like a notification bar a la Android and 6 customizable Home screens. There were also new widgets with up to 5 different sizes, plus support for NFC and improved multitasking. The web browser was also a bit faster, but still far from Android. This model can be seen as the “phone of the young business man” and we give it a 7.5 out of 10. More details in the video review:
