Omnia W anyday............
AMOLED VS TFT
Secondary Camera VS NO Secondary Camera
Better Desing VS Bad Design

It's only good deal for fan boys,though O W priced slightly higher,it's better then 710.

the screen on the lumia has deeper blacks, so you can't say its bad. The amoled screens are not as sharp...
its got Nokia maps , free navigation as well... Not sure why you say bad design as it don't look that bad... But the O W does have the battery advantage ..

You can get the lumia for around 14.7k at saholic if you don't want to get it from sulekha..
Not sure of saholic though..never used it myself..

Lumia 710 looks like the entry level Nokia phones esp the back side,doesn't look like a premium device for it's price,but as you said 'Nokia Drive' is keeping many people on dilemma whether to go for O W or 710.Maybe i will consider WP once Apollo gonna release.

I think Nokia 701 is better than Lumia 710 :-
710 lacks
1. front camera
2. bluetooth files transfer
3. microsd card slot
and
*It has single camera flash, less f number (2.4 than 2.8 of 701). I dont think auto focus/touch focus do much good than fixed edof of 701.
*701 has better video codec support. 710 cant play xvid/divx.
*It is hard to transfer my music from pc to lumia 710.( only via cloud space?)

Mango is newer and has more bugs than belle.
also upgrade to carla will be should be interesting.

they aint charging a premium price, so why ask for a premium finish? :p

thats the thing, when they do give a great quality finish at a premium price - lumia 800 - people complain that hardware ain't up to the mark.

Btw, Nokia Drive works only in online mode - suxs!

Yea man, have fun with the O1, great phone :)

What are the pros?
better hardware
better UI (IMO only)
If you are a social network freak, you will totally love it.
Also, could not find any real bugs in the OS...nothing ever gone wrong...
But one thing that is killing me, is that there is no skype for w7 :(

out of first three, only front camera issue is worth considering, but not for me. talking about bluetooth file transfer, it is not even available in iphone 4:p(don't know about 4s). And internal memory provides enough storage(At least for me).
And for 2.5K cheaper, you get WP 7.5 much better than Belle, a brilliant UI, a much powerful processor, better display than 701.
701 is a good phone no doubt but not so good to spend 18K for that.

Why pity them?
Actually most of them are happier than us.

Actually, "pity" was not for 701 owners but for my friend who did not even bothered to inquire about his options for spending 18K on, which I do even when buying a pen;-). Don't you think???

And who specifically does "us" points to:???

Front camera is not used by a bulk of people . It's been there for years. No one bothers with it. But yes it is useful at times

As a mirror 90%

Rarely some niche group uses it for Skype

Video calling...umm...at 30rs p min I don't think it's that great. I have personal experience with it for 25 seconds. :|

Peak Oil is real!
@Sarath With faster internet connections, Skype and Google hangout on every phone, I bet a lot more people would be using front facing cameras in the near future...

you can easily tether your 3g or whatever internet you got...but not sure about using it as a modem like you can easily do on other older phones...

Thanks for the reply.
But can u be more clear plz.
Tethering via cable, bluetooth or Wi-Fi?
As far i know, only desktop app for Lumia 710, Zune supports only media files sync. So i can't use a cable.
I heard that lumia does not pair with Pc via bluetooth - is it true?
Do i have to buy Wi-Fi for my pc to use 3g internet of lumia?

And also some says lumia may not support tethering [wpxbox.com coolsmartphone.com http://pocketnow.com]

Your advices would be very helpful as i am planning to buy my first smart phone (15~17k).
Thanks again.

you can tether via wifi only...you cant pair up the PC with the phone via Bluetooth...

also, since you can only connect the phone to the PC via Zune, I dont think you can share internet, at least zune will not let you. Not sure if there is another way, I have not played much with the phone, gifted it to dad...

*It has single camera flash, less f number (2.4 than 2.8 of 701). I dont think auto focus/touch focus do much good than fixed edof of 701.

The lesser the better buddy... the N8 has 1.8 i think...

The focus is like 1/2.4 and 1/2.8 and so on... the thing with the autofocus on the 710 is that you can see it struggle to get a focus, the N8 is way better in that respect (I just had the N8 and the 710 at the same point of time to compare, so dont know about other phones)
