Nokia 7200 Review
Review: March 2004. Updated July 2005.
The Nokia 7200 is Nokia's first clamshell phone, and is visually stunning.
Its textile covers are certainly different, and quite tactile, although
durability remains to be proven. Downsides are the large size and weight,
combined with the small screen size.
It's not a very highly featured phone, and is now looking quite dated
in terms of its specification.
Features of the Nokia 7200 include:
- Clamshell design
- Integrated VGA camera (Resolution up to 640 x 480)
- Video recorder and video playback
- Coordinated Xpress-on™ textile covers, soft pouch and wrist strap,

- Stereo FM radio
- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Voice features - Voice dialing Voice commands Voice recording up
to 3 min
- MMS (Multimedia messaging)

(Data transfer up to 177.6 kbit/s in EDGE networks)

- Polyphonic ringtones - Voice clips can be used as ringing tones
- Three soft keys with four-way scroll
- Wallpaper & animated screensavers

i've been using this phone for 8 years now without any problems - until
last week when one of my kids dropped it down the stairs. Since then
I've had some reception problems so finally having to get a new one

the nokia 7200 is a fantasic phone because there is no other phone like
it ! altho the screen is smaller than some other phones you dont notice
it. it holds lots of messages and you can do anything you want. it needs
bluetooth though!!! thats its only downside!!!

This is the best phone i have ever had.iv had it for about 8 months
and not once have i had a problem with it,it does not lose signal when
you flip it down and it has very high quality sound,there is plenty
of memory i have about 30 downloaded animations and images,about 90
camera photos,,about 10 vidios and about 25 recordings on top of about
20 ringtones and the picture quality is v. good and with the night mode
takes great pictures at night,the phone has a very stylish suade design
and unlike most phones has the simcard at the front of the phone and
the battery at the back so theres no fiddling around,the screen is a
little small but has a very high standard colour screen,overall i would
recamend anyone to buy this phone
Reviewed by Kim from UK on 22nd Jul 2005
When i first got this phone i was really impressed with the design and
features but after seeing all the different phones my friends have upgraded
to i've come to realise how outdated this is. For a start the display
is too small for a camera phone, the menu graphics are a bit unattractive
and the materials it's made of are a bit cheap. It hasnt broken or anything
but only cos i've taken good care of it. There's also not enough memory
if u want to keep loads of photos and ringtones on it. So if anyone
wants to buy this phone now, my advice is take a good look at all the
other phones on offer cos this is just too outdated.
Reviewed by Letitia Green from England on 19th
This phone is very stylish and nice looking but all the features atren't
that good. First of all the video recording is SO short, there is no
bluetooth and there is hardly any memory and i dont think you can get
memory cards for this phone! The camera quiality is quite good though
and the voice recording is alright but can be quite fuzzy. Overall i
do think that this phone is worth the money because you get everything
you need but if you are looking for a phone with very high quiality,
this isnt the phone for you!!!!

this phone doesn't work, when you flip the phone shut the signal dies,
whats the point in having a flip phone when you cant close it! features
are good but needs more momory.
Reviewed by Caroline from Ireland on 6th Jul 2005
I have to say I really like this phone. It's stylish and different,
something I was really looking for when everyone else around me had
the exact same flip-open Motorolas. Many of the reviews say that the
screen is small, and true it is smaller than many of the ones out there
at the moment, but what they fail to mention is that the resolution
is actually a lot higher than the average mobile and so the menus and
text is a lot sharper and clearer. I've had the phone for almost nine
months now and have had no problems with it, and anyone who says the
reception dies when the open it- I haven't had that problem at all.
What I do agree with, however, is the lack of memory for storage, especially
archiving messages. However all in all I find it a nifty, daring and
refreshingly unique model, though probably not for those who'd be playing
rough with the thing. You might think it loos like a brick guys but
it's not actually one!

i did not have any problems with this fone until one day, i noticed
that when i open the fold, my reception goes out. i can receive messages
but cannot reply because as soon as i finish writing it, the signal
was out. everything else was fine, it has a working night mode. radio
was ok too. i haven't experienced the switching off by itself thing,
but im afraid i will soon. i just don't get why it loses reception when
i open it? also, the icons are dull, and generally the fone responds
slowly. IF I READ THESE REVIEWS BEFORE, I WOULDN'T HAVE BOUGHT THIS

Great phone, my covers dont come off, however i charged the battery
impatiently so it lasts about 23hrs! i got it from THE LINK in the UK
for £129.99 but was the last one they had at my branch. Some things
I ddnt know about this phone before I bought it: 1. You can make your
own GIFs on the computer (B&W) and use them as screensavers (i have
my name!) 2. it plays and records videos upto 50seconds! 3. You can
have a phone call with the fold closed by locking the keypad during
a call. 3. it takes excellent VGA pictures in the correct light 4. it
has a 65000 colour screen! 5. it has a very satisfying "click" noise
when you shut it!! ooooooooh i'd give it 4/5, its not the best flip
phone nokia have made, check out the new NOKIA 6101...gona sell millions...

I have had Nokias before but this is the lousiest of all phones, not

but the covers need washing once in a while. The interior looks good
but is not user friendly. The keys are tooo soft and tooooo thin for
a guy to punch texts at reasonable speed. The buttons dont even press
well and they call this ergonomic design...lousy. The camera is decent
but lacks a zoom...Samsung phones have zoom for ages...and the camers
is on the top flap...how are u supposed to record urself? Cant change
display brightness...hurts ur eye when u open in at night in bed..and
ringtones are rubbish and the volume is horrendous...I can forgive all
of this if the phone works properly as a phone...the network reception
is the worst I have ever had and the talk volume is worse...Am sending
it back...No second thoughts and will never miss it... Cain

At my first contact with the Nokia 7200 phone, I wasn't convinced. But
after using the phone for close to 5 months now, I can say that my positive
expectations have been substantially met. Save, perhaps, for the poor
audio quality; ringing volume, even at the highest level, is well too
low and the voice recording playback is similarly poor.

a bottomless pit). I was using a T610 before this, but before the T610,
I was strictly Nokia all the way. I'm glad I have returned to a Nokia,

This phone is excellent, everything you would expect from a nokia and
very nice looking indeed. Its not too big and very useable. I was fed
up with trying other makes (eg motorola, siemans) and always seem to
go back to good old nokia as i dont think they can be beaten. Only a
couple of negative points, the covers wear out a little bit too much
and the scrolling of the menue is sluggish. The headphone socket is
a nuisance too because you cant really get it in in a hurry. This is
a pain and i reckon it might break too cos its a bit fiddley. Still
the best phone ive ever had though!

Since having this phone it has been in the repair shop more than i've
had it. Come back my 3650 all is forgiven.

Being a veteran of Nokia phones, I can safely say this phone lives up
to my expectations. The 7200 delivers all the functions that a top range
mobile phone does, if not to a higher standard to some. A great choice
in my books! However the only downside is the slightly womanly appearance
it has. I mean come on.. It has got a fury cover for Christ sake!...lol

Absolutely rubbish phone. Slow dated software, basic and very boring.
Mine has broken within a week and switches itself on and off when ever
it likes. A big disapointment. They have submitted style insted of technology,
absolutely terrible to operate. Awful just awful.

I just bought this phone about 3 days ago... it's really good! I was
a bit unsure what the picture quality would be like cos alot of other
nokia's picture quality is bad but its pretty good! The only thing i
would say is bad about this phone is that i can't get past level 3 on
Disco! (AWESOME game!) very addictive

Please please please can someone tell me what Nokia where thinking when
they introduced this phone??? I've had many Nokiaphones and this one
is just not worthy of being melted down. Sorry Nokia, but you've truly
produced a stinker

I like the leather design, but the screen is terribly small for a clamshell
phone. It's a joke for a clamshell design! Nokia still doesn't understanding
why people like clamshells. If Nokia doesn't put more effort on learning
form its competitor like Samsung, it will be history soon...

Another guy commented that he has used this in the USA, and gave it
a bad review ... sadly that can't be true however, since the phone is
arguably very nice, and is not usable in the US since it is only GSM900/1800

Went to take a look at this phone yesterday in the shop. First thing
I noticed was the screen size. Very small. The resolution is only 128x128,
and physically the screen is smaller than my current T610. What a let
down. I was so looking forward to this phone. People keep saying that
I should get the Samsung E700 instead. Nokia's first flip phone, and
its a dud in my opinion. It may look fashionable, but with that TINY
screen, and no bluetooth its hardly a T610 killer. Nokia must do better.
Their latest phones are all pretty poor. Sony, Samsung, and Motorola
are beting Nokia at their own game!

This really is a neat little phone from nokia and a great first attempt
at the clam shell market, ok it hasnt got bluetooth and the memory of
its competitors but considering most people who buy phones tend not
to use all the capabilities the phone has to offer then this really
is a good buy if your looking for a new phone. my first 4 phones were
nokia's but my recent phones have been samsung (excellent quality) this
month I purchased a motorola v600 and even though it looks a great phone
it was slow kept crashing and the sms isnt T9, motorola opting for the
hard to master ITAP input instead, needless to say I sold the phone
within a week and got the Nokia 7200 despite reading bad press about
it in various forums and was pleasantly surprised on how easy pleasant
it was to use! check your service providers or get to the car phone
warehouse (when the nokia 7200 becomes available and have a play around
with the phone, its easy to use fast at sms and it has a nice clear
fm radio f or when you are sat in the ever so annoying traffic :) .........lets
hear what others have to say about ths phone now its been released as
there doesnt seem to be much feedback apart from before the release!
Thanks nokia for trying out new and original ideas

this phone is outstanding. if you are a loyal nokia fan then this is
THE phone to upgrade to. honestly. i stumbled across this phone when
looking to upgrade my phone and could not believe how great it looks.
i didn't even consult reviews before i bought it because i knew that
nokia would not let me down and boy was i right. this phone is worthy
of an award. i love it and am now the envy of all my friends... :-)
don't even care about the camera or video features - this just looks
SO cool in my hand!!

Listen up - don't tell me it doesn't have enough memory, don't tell
me Samsung's better. Guess what? You buy this phone cos it's Cool. That's
all that matters. Features are (almost) TOTALLY IRRELEVANT. What this
phone is about is Lifestyle. That's how they sold it, that's how it
functions, my friend, no offence, but Samsung is Great tech-wise (I
bought a Samsung monitor 1710mp, it ROCKS) but really, it just doesn't
LOOK right. You're a laid-back, chll-out kinda guy/girl, wanna have
a little bit of fun with your cell, this phone is IT. Drink up yo lychee
martinis, fellow 7200s!
