Nokia 7250 review

 Review: May 2003  
 

Last updated July 2004

Rating:

In a nutshell: 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.

Nokia 7250 features 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
  • Nokia Pop-Port™ connector
  • 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

Whilst I do think the phone is pretty terrible - camera/operation etc compared to whats on the market now, it is probably the most durable phone in the world! My phone has been dropped, kicked, squashed, soaked and everything else and yet here it is! Still working nearly a decade later!!!

If you just want a usable phone then this is fine. We have had this one for 5 years now having got it as a free annual upgrade. The controls are intuitive, unlike more recent models. Phone and text are all I need and it is perfect for that. Just about to buy a new battery as the original is now getting a little weak.

My phone is now 5 years old. I had it for 2 years and previous to that, my dad had it for 3 years. It has been in constant use and is still on the original battery. I get around half a weeks use from it before needing charging which is fine. Making calls and texting is very easy. And so is navigation compared to some of todays phones that have confusing menus :S I haven't used the camera on it for a long time due to the quality being rather bad. And the screen lags really badly in cold weather. In all a decent phone for its time, and still a decent phone for me.

I got mad with Nokia when I found out that when they discontinue a phone, the also discontinue support for it. In other words, if you buy a Nokia phone and they discontinue it, you will not be able to buy replacement batteries for it or any other items. I have three Nokia phones, all work very good, but they dropped the support and once my batteries die, my phones are gone. I will not buy Nokia again. Next time, Motorola.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 my nokia have made.

Had it 18 months. Camera doesn't work anymore ... doprs into stanby after 10 seconds with no preview screen (was rubbish when it did), infra-red doesn't work (Icon flashes when you're in menus but it don't work). It is a bit ropey with signal strength at times. Polyphonic ring tomes are a bit tinny on this model too. Speaker fone sounds better than talking into it normally, according to ppls I've called. Lucky it has the good ol' Nokia menu structure or it could be completely lame. 6230 is a much better fone.

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 good phone giving excellent battery life and reception. Convienent size too. Only faults are: Cheap plastic buttons and cover, the Nokia covers also scratch and wear easily and let in loads of dirt. You have to clear the previous text every time you send a text message. Menus are slow. No standard ring tone. PLEASE GIVE US A PLAIN RING-RING TONE! Vibrate aleart is really noisy - no good in silent mode. Camera is basic by today's technology.

Great phone. Easy to use. Cool to look at. Shame about the quailty of the camera. Although I wouldn't recommend this I did accidently leave the camera in my jeans pocket while they were washed through a complete 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 - all apart from the bit you talk in to. That took a couple of days to dry out properly. It now smells freash and works as good as new!

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)

Lots of functionality, looks stylish like the reviewer. Spoilt by Nokia's horrible user interface... As it only cost me #29, I would buy it again.

Hello everyone! I wanted 2 give this fone 2 stars but no way is it an average fone so I had 2 give it 1! Well I don't personally have this phone but my boyfriend does. He tells me its marvelous but he quite clearly knows its not! I know its not cos the photo quality is so bad, its blurred! The screen is really small as wel! I actually feel quite sorry for him cos Im goin 2 buy the motorola E365 2mo and it luks way better for 200 less! Omg! Don't buy this fone!!! ; )

Nokia never fail in easy to use, well built phones. Ive had everything from Y68i to E700's and i always go back to nokia. Very smal, lightweight and useable. If you want good photos then buy a digital camera..not a phone..or go for a very unusable E700..I text loads and nothing beats teh 7250 for text input and general use. It does everything I need..The best feature is that if you compose a txt message and someone phones or u have to cancel out to the main screen, the text remains on the create message screen and you dont loose it..a must in my line of work...Interchangable covers too..so if u scratch it, then buy a new one and hey presto..Brand new phone.

I was totally tricked by Nokia's Advertisements!! The camera photo quality is damn bad!!!! I'm being seriously! Photo quality is so poor probably since it's only 4096 colour display! STRONGLY NOT! RECOMMENDED! Not worth all the money try looking at Samsung V200 or E700 if u want to get the most out of your money!

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. arrgghhhhh. Once yer nokia u never go back.....

This phone is absolutley rubbish. I had high expectations of the phone and when it arrived I was unhappy to say the least. The camera is rubbish, there is not a great amount of ringtones and the standard ringtones are poor. The screen size is rubbish and the colours are useless. I have gone back to using my 3330 as it is a better phone. DO NOT GET ONE OF THESE PHONES.

It\'s a very good phone. Some of my complaints are just regarding the picture from the phone. It is virtually impossible to use the camera with only a minimal light. You really would need it for bright picture-taking. There are a lot of improvements from previous Nokia phones. The high memory is very useful. If there\'s a color-display phone to choose, it should be Nokia 7250.

I have always bought Nokia phones but i am really disappointed with the 7250, picture and screen quality isn't as good as i expected and the camera doesn't have a zoom. I find the buttons quite hard to press aswell really can't wait for my years contract to end. There are much better camera phones on the market i really wish i'd got the Sharp GX10 like my boyfriend said but i thought i knew better!

I'm quite dissappointed with this phone after paying $1000 for it! It 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 again.

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 on't sell...

its not a DIGITAL camera phone!! The quality of the photos could be better using a Web Cam! Nokia is seriously tricking everyone with the advertisement! The qualities shown on the Ads are NOT the actual qualities you get!! It's horrible! It's like Gameboy camera in colour! Thats how bad it is! its all dotted and can't even create the colour brown!!!!! My hair came out golden yellow and the pants and shoes of others all come out yellow! That's how bad the clours are since it's ONLY 4096 colour display!! Compared to 65,000 of Samsung V200 and Panasonic and Sharp!

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.

NOKIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN KNOWN FOR THE BEST HANDSETS GOOD BATTERY GOOD DESIGNS EXCELLENT ACCESSORIES. BUT I THINK NOKIA REALLY SCREWED UP THIS PHONE BIG TIME, I CAN THIS PHONE IS C##P. NOKIA MADE THE 7650 AND THAT IS THE GREATEST NOKIA OF ALL TIME YEA ITS CHUNKY BUT WHO CARES. SO WHEN I SAW THE 7250 IT WAS A BIT MORE IN PRICE AUTOMATICALLY I THOUGHT ITS A SMALLER 7650. NAH I WAS WRONG, ITS SO C##P U CANT SEND A PIC/TEXT/RINGTONE TO ANOTHER MOBILE VIA INFRARED BUT 7650 U CAN DO ALL THIS I JUS WASTED MY TIME TRYING TO GET THIS PHONE, SO I AM GOING TO GIVE IT BACK TOMORROW. AS FOR T-MOBILE I FOUGHT I GET A SAMSUNG V200 I KNO THE BATTERY IS C##P SO ORANGE GIVE 2 BATTERIES BUT T-MOBILE ONLY GIVE ONE SO IF ANY ONE LOOKING FOR A GREAT 7650 IS MY ADVICE.
