Nokia 700 review

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

Nokia 700

Video for the Nokia 700 shoots 720p at 30fps with 3x zoom. With the video there are only three additional modes - Auto, Low Light and Night. However, you can also fiddle around with the white balance, exposure and colour tone if you'd like to.

Nokia 700

The first clip in our video was shot in 1280 x 720 in Auto. The colours are a little saturated, but the video itself is quite smooth, even zooming in and out while taking the shot. It's a little blurry zoomed in and takes a second to render once zoomed.

The second clip, shot in Low Light mode, shows how the video uses contrast to up the presence of white, over-exposing the bird and sky. The video shows the smooth capture however, for example the movement of the boat and the flying gull.

Shot in night mode, with the flash, there is little extra light thrown on the scene in our third clip. Again, the actual capture of movement is excellent, but there is little be seen except the headlights of cars as the buildings are left in near-darkness, despite having some light source from the shop windows.
