Nokia 7250 Review
Review: May 2003. Updated July 2004.
The Nokia 7250 is surely Nokia's worst camera phone. Whilst it is based
on a successful design (the 7210) and incorporates a stereo FM radio,
polyphonic ringtones and Java capability, it fails as a camera
phone for the simple reason that it has a terrible colour display and
an even worse camera. Add reliability problems to the mix and you get
a phone that is best avoided. A better option is the newer Nokia
7250i, or one of Nokia's later generations of camera phone, such
as the 6230.
Features of the Nokia 7250 include:
- WAP 1.2.1, GPRS
- High Speed Data (HSCSD) - max 43.2 kilobits per second
- MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service)
- Downloadable Java applications
- Colour display (4096 colours, 128 x 128 pixels)
- Polyphonic ringtones (MIDI format)
- 3.5 Mbytes shared memory
- Integrated stereo FM radio
- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Changeable x-press on covers
- Infra-red and cable connections
- Downloadable colour wallpaper
- Screensaver: digital clock
- Speed dialling
- Phone book (up to 300 entries)
- 2 games (Triple Pop and Bounce)
- Clock, alarm clock, calculator, currency converter
- Size: 105 x 44 x 19 mm
- Weight: 92g
- Battery standby: 150 - 300 hours
- Battery talktime: 2 - 5 hours
- Tri band

if your looking for a nice decent phone, then this is great. its small,
got a camera, and works well. im not saying its fantastic, look at all
the new phones out, d600, 6230i but this does the job.

Dreadful phone. The screen is so poor it makes every 'photo' look like
a Monet. If you want a camera phone then you can't get a worse one,
it you don't want a camera phone, then there are much better Nokias
that do the other jobs better. To be avoided at all cost.

is rubbish but my brother who i got it off of got it 3 years ago and
if you look how far phones have come in 3 years then it is not that
bad. so it does what i need

Why are people saying thatnit is rubbish cos it is not the camera is
quite good maybe not as good as some other phones but it is not poor.
it has good ringtones and you can download free ringtones from nokia
.com You can pretty much have the display settings to what you want
like the fact that you can change the colour of the battery and signal
colours. Kool little phone all over

i hav cum to the conclusion that this is the best phone in the world...
this is based on the fact that i dont get out much. however friends
and family of mine tell me that this phone "isnt fit to call even the
operator"...i on the other hand have to respectfully disagree...ive
had this phone for 7 yrs and it still works..... thank you nokia for
supplying me with a phone that has possibly the worst camera this side
of the equator...and that tells its consumer that it has infra red...when
in actual fact, it doesnt. p.s.this phone is abysmal.

The Nokia 7250 is not only the most stylish mobile phone on the market
it is also about the easiest to use. The few problems with this phone
include limited gaming facilities, poor camera visibility and regular
charging but apart from these three negative factors the Nokia 7250
is without a doubt the best looking handset I have ever bought.

I've imported this from London. Even though this is the first camera
model in Nokia the services and picture clarity and every thing in this
mobile is worst. Especially the Infrared Service when the option / future
doesn't work what is the intention of the Company to insert it as one
of the menu option. Its a white color cheating. I request one and all
to not to practise the same in future.

its really bad that the infrared doesn't work. It makes it totally useless.but

one problem or the other since i bought it,$ i even regret using a nokia

in general i would say that after having this phone for 18 months it
has never really let me down. although at times selecting certain options
on the menu does cause it to turn off and not return on for several
mins. the infared is rubbish and doesnt work. camera quality is very
poor as are the original pictures on the handset. memory is very good,
can store and adequate number of pics and msgs aswell as contacts. menu
is easy to use as is text. and being nokia it is all about the basic
nokia structure. overall..a good phone for the calling and texting and
general reliability, but for the additional features the only one that
really shines is the in built fm radio

I have had many phones and i must say this phone is the best iv ever
had! it looks smart, has a good feel in your hand, so easy to use, plenty
of features. i must say the camara wasnt too great but what do you expect,
it was one of the first camara phones avaliable. i know the pix wernt
too great on the phone but once they were on your computer they didnt
look too bad and plus i had 250+ pix on my phone and i could still store
loads of texts and loads of contacts. the actual phone its self never
crashed or never gave me any problems, unfortunatly it was not strong
enough to withstand a drop off a 2nd floor balcony :( but iv already
bought another for £30! bargin!

I have read all the reviews and it appears that people are disappointed
with the camera. So in all fairness to this phone, its brilliant! I
agree that the camera/picture quality is very poor but if you are looking
for a decent camera, then buy one! I use the phone purely for ringing
and texting and not pointing it at people to snap shot their mugs! lol.
No problems with this phone at all, good standard as you would expect
from Nokia so I would highly recommend it to all.

its not a bad phone. The picture quality is lacking somewhat - cant

I've had this phone 2 years and I'm about to replace it with PDA/phone
combo. I'll be sorry to say goodbye because it's pocket-friendly and
has always done what I've asked without fuss. Other reviewers don't
like the camera. There's nothing wrong with it - it's the size of the
display that could be a problem for some. But download your pics onto
a computer with the usb data cable and you'll see standard webcam-style
images. I've always managed a 4 day battery life with average use. Only
real bad point for me was the tacky standard ring tones Summary: still
a handy little phone, though latest clamshells will give bigger displays.

Iv had my 7250 for about 3 years i think, its took plenty of beating
and the phone its self has never broken (touch wood it wont) but the
cases have. the camara isnt that good but the phone makes up for that
for being so easy to use and look so good. The 7250 has to be the easiest
phone to use that iv ever had a go of and it has all the basic things
i want on it, converter, radio, stop watch etc the only things that
would make this a better phone is a better screen & camara, a movie
player and maybe bluetooth, apart from that this is the best phone in

This phone is generally good, it is compact, useful and was the one
to have when it first came out as it was one of the first camera phones
to be released. Now that times and technology has moved forward there
are sharper more stylish phones to have. On the downside the camera
might as well not be there, it is extremely poor, if you want nice sharp
images buy a proper camera not a 7250, but if you are looking for a
small useful phone not too heavily laiden with extras this is a nice
uncomplicated phone to have at a rockbottom price.

a result. hence the three stars. but now, 20 months later, altho i still
have the phone the only reason i do is because i paid so much damned
money for it! the camera is awful, ("but its a phone, not a camera"
i hear you cry), however the phone functions arent much better! on average
every 5th call is connected and the occasional text message gets through.
the screen quality is so poor you can barely read whats on it and the
phone likes to alter the time settings to its own amusement. why do
i have this phone when i'm so disappointed with it? because i paid so
much money for it!!!its a good phone as long as you dont pay much for

I can say is " I'm never gonna buy another Nokia again" because Nokia
sucks! Not only the phone looks cheap, the performance of its camera
& display is terrible. There are so many problems with this unit ( no
signal , not charging , just to mention a few ). I went to the authorized
service center to have it repaired ( more than 7 times already ). I
requested for a full replacement but they say that all they can do is
just repair it. and every time they repair it, another problem comes
along. One very unsatisfied customer! Grrrrrr!!!!

its a good quality phone. the reason i have given it 4 stars is the
simple fact that the camera quality could be improved. some pictures
when took cam be quite blured and the fact that there is no zoom is
also a down side. i am a person who takes pictures when i go clubbin,
instead of taking out a hefty camera. so overall is a good phone but

an worst of all the 7250 is near £320 and the 6610i is a mere £110.
how can nokia be allowed to do this? its outragious! if you really really
want to buy a nokia 7250, then (more fool you) get a 6610i and buy a
7250 cover. if you can find a difference between the two i will personally
give you a million uk pounds. and just to think, i used to have a 7250....

washing machine cycle. The camera came out very clean and very wet.
I took the front and back off, removed the battery and left the bits
in a warm place over night. When dry I put it all together and it worked

The nokia 7250 is a great well-working phone brought out by Nokia. I
have had fun with the camera so far, but compared to proper digital
cameras these days. The nokia 7250 is lacking quality (even when set
to HIGH quality in settings). The screensaver is set to A Digital Clock,
which can't be changed (by who really cares? Whos going to look at a
screensaver when the 7250 is in your pocket?). Pictures taken on the
camera and downloaded can be used as a Wallpaper, and a quick short
cut to the camera (by pressing ^) really helps. Shame about the in-built
FM radio requiring the additional headset, but remember the headset
in actually the radio antenna as well, great to know that pressing the
button on the headset toggles through your pre-set radio stations too!
Polyphonic ringtones sound awesome too! The nokia 7250 has an infrared
port too, meaning if you get yourself Nokia's 7250 PC Suite and your
computer has an infrared port, you can send pictures and ringtones to
your phone for free! Huge ammount of space too (3.5mb, may not sound
like much, but it is when it comes to mobile phones!! I have 24 games,
with 2mb to go!) Definately worth it! :o)

right, this is the review of reviews. iv just upgraded my 7250 BUT only
because i was a little intrigued in other phones and not because its
a rubbish phone because it isnt at all. Some newer phones spend so long
making or adding features to phones they 4get what a phone is 4 and
thats making calls and sending txts if u didnt know either and Nokia
always get this right 100%. This phone is no excemption. I hope nokia
dont try to be 2 clever and change this in future phones. Its ease of
use and ease of txting is unparalleled to any phone. true the camera
isnt so gud altho i was amazed how diff they look on a pc than on the
phone. the colours may not be 65k perfect but uv gotta be a fuss freek
to care. the games are cool. and it does lag when it gets full but 5mb
of data cant be wrong. lol. plenty of space to fit 100+ pictures and
30 games which is wot i had on. wot else... the radio is cool apart
from no MW to listen to 909 at footy matches :( but who cares phones
shudnt need to have radio anyway. Just DONT buy any unofficial covers
like i did. BIG BIG mistake if its one millimeter of in size it will
rattle squeek and the buttons will miss and become unresponisive. listen
to this review cos i aint lying i dont need to. But if u do want more
fun features than a quality phone then get a samsung v200, sony ericsson
T610 or a sharp G20. they are excelent phones but so fuzzy when txting.

drops out all the time and says insert sim. It takes ages to open applications
and the photos aren't great. The camera is a fun option but not if you
seriously want to take decent photographs. I wouldn't buy one of these

People, people, people... having read dozens of "7250's CAMERA SUX AS#!!!!1111111"
I have to wonder how the human race has ever made it this far... Has
anyone ever tried to send a picture to a computer via e-mail or other
means? The pics aren't too bad, the phone's screen is more like a preview,
not the real thing. If you only want to use the camera of the phone
for viewing the pictures in the phone itself and not putting them on
a computer (and possibly even printing them out), then buy a camera
that has a phone (eg. the other cameraphones), not 7250, which is a
phone with a camera... and if you want to take some serious photographs,
then buy your camera and phone separately... please first find out how
things are, before you start to complain... and about commercials, if
you didn't know that 99% of commercials differ from reality more or
less (to make the product seem more appealing to consumers), then you
should open your eyes... the remaining 1% are bad commercials that w

This fone is a piece of Cr#p. The first one i got was, i thought good
for the first 2 weeks then the sound stopped working and the applications
wouldnt open, so i send it back and the fone company sent me a new one.
The second one worked well for about 3 weeks and i was starting to think
i was just unlucky with the first one, but then the camera stoped working
and i lost half the screen, it just wouldn't work. So i sent it back
AGAIN and swoped it for a 5100 and got some money back. I've had the
5100 for 2 months and have had no problems wif it except the on/off
button is abit hard but that is no problem for me because i always have
my fone on. If your finkin about the 7250 FORGET IT, buy a bit of wood,
it will work just as well.

I got this phone about 3 weeks ago and this phone is truly a fashion
phone. Wherever you go people will be looking at your phone. As for
the features, yes it isn't as advanced as the newer flip phones with
the 65k screens, 40 tone polyphonic rings, and "better" cameras. However
I bought this phone for the usuability, reliability, and ease of use
(like most Nokias). The phone has great reception in my area (Vancouver)
and I have never had a dropped call or static during my calls. The keypad
is also very good as they are connected 2 by 2 vertically which makes
it much easier to use without looking at your fingers because you can
basically feel your way around the keypad. Overall this is the perfect
phone for me as it has all the features that I want combined with the
ease of use, all in a very sexy package.

I have had this phone for 2 months and am delighted with it. It doesn't
even compare to the t100 and DOES have a vibrate function, so disregard
the previous reviewer. The only hitch is the quality of the screen-an
area where nokia trail behind other brands especially the new Samsungs.
But this is the smallest and best designed camera phone on the market
and is impecable at everything it does. It also has the big advantage
of the best OS around. The Samsung V200 is the only competitor, go for
it if you don't mind the extra size and consider the Zoom feature essential.
Otherwise this is the phone to have at the moment.

the photos arent great but to have a camera on a phone this size at
this point of time is pretty damn good. If u want a phone that will
take good pictures put look like ur carrying a bloody bowling ball in
your pocket then go for the gd88 and gx10. The colour on this phone
is acceptable compared to the 65k colour display phones such as gd88
and gx10, you can blur the line between the colour display on the 7250
wif the BIGGER CHUNKIER colour phones which are a real turn off. The
7250 is in a class of its own and good value for money considering having
a camera colour and other handy functions in a compact phone.

after all! If you want a digital camera - go buy one! The pictures are
good enough to have a lot of fun with. Generally I can't fault this
phone and believe me I have tried. The key pad is somehow a huge improvement
on the 7210. Absolutely excellent. Nokia have learned all the lessons
from their earlier phones. Brilliant!

Great Phone, The Ringtones sound great, the games are addictive. The
camera just adds another dimension to this phone, for £150 its well
worth it. The keypad lay out is also very nice giving the phone a futuristic
look. This phone will be popular for quiet some time in my opinion,
the colour screen isn't state of the art but its does the job just fine.

phones cures boredom easily with either the in-built camera, the addictive
games on it and also you can download extra things using WAP. the one
thing i don't like about it is that when you take a picture, the picture
seems quite dark but when you take it, it looks much brighter and comes
up quite sharp. No faults so far, never a waste of £150, even though
