Nokia 7270 review
| ||Review: March 2005
In a nutshell: The Nokia 7270 is another "fashion" phone from Nokia, part of the fashion trio that includes the Nokia 7260.
It's a beautifully styled clamshell phone with rounded corners and made from a combination of metal, textiles and plastic. The textile covers are changeable and a matching soft pouch and carrying strap is supplied. The digital content (wallpaper, screensavers, etc) has also been styled to match the covers. In addition, optional style packs are available that complete the look and include leather straps, phone jewellery and a credit card case.
The external display is a 4k colour display, and uses STN technology rather than the superior TFT, so can be hard to read when outdoors. Open up the clam, however, and inside is a bright active matrix display with 65k colours and 128 x 160 pixels, which is good for a Nokia but not as good as the competition at this price point. The camera is VGA and includes a video recorder - again nothing special for the price. The functionality is definitely better than the 7260, for example the 7270 supports MP3 ringtones, and there are some useful features like an integrated handsfree speaker, voice dialling and a voice recorder, but in terms of functionality the Nokia 7270 is not an exceptional phone when compared to others at this price. In parcticular, Bluetooth™ is noticeable by its absence.
The worst feature of the Nokia 7270 is its weight. At 121g its around 30% heavier than the average Samsung clamshell. What do Nokia put into their clamshells that makes them so heavy?
Putting aside the weight issue and the fact that the 7270 is less well specified than any of its similarly-priced rivals, we have to admit that its an exceptional phone. It does just enough to stand comparison with other top-of-the-range phones, and it looks beautiful. If that's what matters most to you, then buy this phone and don't look back!
Nokia 7270 features include:
- Main internal display: TFT 65,000 colours, 128 x 160 pixels
- External display: CSTN 4096 colours, 96 x 65 pixels
- Digital VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) with 4x digital zoom / video camera

I've had this phone for quite sometime now. It has lasted the longest out of any other phone I've had, its very durable and stylish, i love it. Battery life isn't too good and I'm unfortunately having to buy another phone as it does not charge anymore. I will not be getting this phone again. It does not have an MP3 player, but does have a radio. But i have an iPod so it suits my needs just fine. The Camera isn't great quality but is still good for pictures. Be careful mot to scratch the metal casing as once you do so it is very noticeable. Overall this is a great stylish phone and was a great little thing, nice fashion phone and a great little trend. But like all trends they sooner or later die.

this is the best 'phone in the world, unless your a girl.
Its solid, big letters/numbers on a bright screen and big buttons for sausage like fingers. If you want something "pretty", this ain't for you. If you want something that works, this is it. I've had one (well two really) for nearly three years and just starting to show signs of ageing (camera fogging etc) but it has had a very hard life. I want another but you can't get them any more.All the flip top ones (i want a flip top as the screen and buttons are protected when closed) look like some little girl designed them. Anyone got another 7270 they want to sell please ?

The 7270 is a must buy. Good picture quality with variable modes. Night mode is recommended for indoor picture taking. To get excellent MP 3 quality- you may use infra red, It is a solid build, with good signal and battery strength, Several themes and profiles. Has a radio too (not a CD player). There is Virtually nothing to complain about, except if you want a camcorder or PDA. Very clever and stylish phone from Nokia. It is phone and a lot more. I have had mine for over 11 months and it has never let me down.

MP3 player BUT does have a radio (I have an iPod so I couldn't care
less about the former). The camera quality is very good, and it's easy
enough to use. I adore this phone BUT I wouldn't necessarily recommend
buying it because there are far better phones on the market. I upgraded
to the 6111, and Nokia lost a devoted fan with that phone. However,
the 7270 is good at what it does.

i have had this phone for a year and now its comin up for a trade im
giving it a review. the phone has served me well, rarely letting me
down over battery and signal, it isnt a very common phone which i liked
as it meant no1 else in my group of mates had it. the fabric outer is
quite clever, my first thoughts were "cool, but wont last over a month,
after 12 months the original black cover is stil attatched and doesnt
look tatty. overall i like the phone a lot and would highly recommend
it. however: -the camera isnt very good quality, although this is due
to the price -the volume switch on the side broke after 4months and
so i could only ever have full volume or 'mute audio' -bluetooth isnt
on this phone which often prevents file sharing with more upto date
phones. i am pleased with this phone and would recommend it to anyone.

i was deciding to give a mobile as a gift to my sister.at the time i
saw it i was impressed by it because it was the most beautiful clamshell
and i bought it.it had nice features but again the nokia company did
the same as with the nokia 6030.they had given an unaffordable price
.i mean a high price for a phone which gave less features in return
such as no blue tooth a vga camera instead of a megapixel cameraand
a 65k screen.the thing i liked about it was the accesories i got and
no reliability problems.so i sold it and paying a tiny bit more i bought
the samsung d500.i wouldnot say that the nokia phone is very beautiful
but has nothing in it.i am saying that they provide limited functionality
for the price.they should take a lesson from sony ericsson and samsung.

although with a small memory I have to constantly go through my Images

with messages, in that it won't tell me when i don't have space for
new messages and I would sometimes go for a few days atleast, wondering
why i am not receiving any. the push to talk feature is a bit pointless,
don't know what it is for. i have recently noticed the sounds have changed.
the standard warning tones, i.e. message sent confirmation, have went
kind of high pitched, but all other tones are still the same. over-all

To the person who wrote "reception is about the network not the phone,"
you are blissfully unaware that in fact some phones do experience poor
'reception'. After scientificially testing the same network on two different
phones I found that to be the case, so don't be so quick to discount
this person's observation, because you've been too irrational in your
euphoric lauding of this phone to take the time to think.

Have had this phone for 7 months now and have had no problems at all.
The camera is not the best but I use the camera function on a phone
only occasionally and the pics are not that bad. The phone features
suit me fine, although O2 had to phone me and go through the mms settings
all by hand, on my samsung E700 they could send them in a text but now
it is set up the mms are sent much faster than the samsung did.No problems
with signal strength at all and the calls are clear. The battery lasts
about 3 days if on all the time with occasional use but recharges quickly
enough. I was able to synch everything I needed on my pc with the pc
suite via the usb data cable without any glitches so I am a happy user
so far.The only niggle is the Push to Talk button, currently useless
here, as it can be pushed on quite easily if the phone is in your bag.Easily
turned off again when you use the phone, but a minor irritation.I haven't
found any of the newer nokias to be as solid as this so wil l stick
with this for a bit.

I have usually had Nokia phones, although prior to owning this I had
a Samsung clamshell. I liked the look of this chunky 7270 so thought
I would go back to Nokia Plus points - Nice big screen, big number buttons.Surfing
the net is easy. Radio is okay. Quality build, feels like a real phone.
Loudspeaker good. Loud enough ringtones to hear in a busy environment.
Minus points - Battery life appaling. Reception unbelievably bad. (With
another Nokia I can get a full signal while with this I get nothing)
PTT is undoubtedly a great feature but until it is widely adopted by
UK companies that PTT button is wasted. Would be nice to be able to
assign it to something. Camera quality poor. Very little memory on the
phone and no option to increase it. Large fingers will struggle with
the navigation buttons. Sreen not bright enough in bright sunlight.
Summary - In principle I still like Nokias. Sadly I would not recommend
this as a business or a fun phone. There are better options out there.

like old nokia, and the colours are alot duller then most phones, but
i like it, it has cool themes you can set the screens to! Looks wise
i hated it at first but it was the best of a bad bunch on o2 Online
really, however i have grown to love it it does feel a little plastic
compared to my old one! i bought some cool leather covers and it look
stylish. Im an art student so i think it suits me with the cool design
and originality. As people have said the mini display screen on the
front is very pixalated, but it does the job and tells the time when
its closed, whats cool is you can have differnt settings for it mini
and for the big screen, different wallpapers etc! Camera not as good
as samsung and no flash, which is a bit annoying, but i has video, i
only take quick pics anyway otherwise i use a normal camera!! Buttons
are so good, they are big and feel good to press!! Nice shape, smaller
then what i thought it would be! and i like how the red black and silver
design goes throughout the whole phone! Doesnt hold as many messages
as i would like or had before and didnt receive any messages for a day
because it was nearly full, but you just have to delete them every so
often! Reception/signal is about the same as most phones, no bluetooth
but i have never had bluetooth anyway! Cool charger too, its weird!
dont like the headphones it came with so i bought some separately. It
definately is a combination of different textures and materials, probably
not practical for everyone, but it will do me for the next year i hope!

the capacity to save 100 text messages, ALTOGETHER, meaning both sent

Still waaay too expensive in Australia right now, but the good news
is, it's cheap as anything overseas. I bought it in Hong Kong for about
AUD$360 (that's about 150 pounds I think??). Easy to convert to local
network, Nokia care centre did it for free under warranty for me. Haven't
figured out how to upload new games and tones on it yet, but I love
the snooze function on the alarm (good for travelling and actually USING
the alarm!!) and the Disco game has me hooked. Photos I took with the
camera are amazingly sharp, emailed them to myself and they're fantastic!
Reviewed by Hannah from UK on 8th Aug 2005
Looks great and generally is brilliant. However if you set an alarm
when the phone is plugged into the charger after it goes off the phone
will freeze and the battery will have to be removed...thus you cannot
have the snooze feature. Also signal can vary a lot and is no where
near as good as on previous nokia models. However I still prefer nokia's
in general for being user friendly and this is no exception

I am so disappointed with my new Nokia. It was a birthday present, I
have only had it for a few days, but already i am distressed because
service signals fade in and out, and I cannot make or receive any calls
or texts when I am within a building. That makes the phone virtually
useless, because I am a college student away from home, so I use my
cell as my main phone. I was much happier with my previous Nokia, a
3200, which never has any service problems, incuding during travel to
other countries. I love the look of this phone, but it is truly not
functional. I am going back to my old phone.

Bad points: too bulky, too fat, not ergonomic, no bluetooth (which is

after being sent and no calls can be received or made. The phone itself
is distinctly average. Big and bulky, basic, the only reason I chose

This mobile really really is the best I've seen from Nokia. Don't let
those bad reviews degrade you from getting this wonderful mobile phone.
Also, don't base your final judgments on those dummy models from those
mobile phone dealers. - They're nothing compared to the real thing!
This model will really satisfy you since it has features that may seem
median according to the reviews but are actually kick-ass in real life.

This phone is so overpiced and so outdated. The screen is rubbish. Nokia
should be ashamed of themselves for putting only 128x160 pixels in such
a huge phone. Battery life is only average and doesnt justify it weighing
like a brick. The UI is the same old series40 and the graphics are just
terrible. There is no bluetooth and the camera is rubbish. The build
quality isnt so good either, the flip in mine cant close properly after
only 4 months. My advice is, if you want a descent clamshell, avoid

The editors review for this phone definately does it justice. While
it does lack bluetooth, it still looks more unique than any other Nokia
out there, and does everything I want it to do - Importantly, to be
able to play snippets of mp3's as ringtones and message tones. Getting
a data cable is highly recommended cos that way you can upload your
own hot wallpapers for both the mini and main display. I also love the
leather snap-on covers you can get in Nokia's "Style Pack" - they're

Awesome phone, lose the detacable covers though and its a cool phone.
Light for what it is, camera is good for a nokia and the screen is huge!
Nice and loud speaker on the phone, ive been enjoying chopping up songs
to make ringtones. Can get it free on many cheap contracts in the UK,
and well worth it in my opinion espeically if you want something different
- everyone who has a nokia has a 6230 these days and this is something
a little different. Shame about the lack of bluetooth, but apart from
that this is an awesome phone with one of the best camera's nokia makes
at the start of the year.

It's quite a good fone-- it looks cool and the wraps are kinda funky.
But the annoying thing is that it doesn't have bluetooth, and plus all
the themes it comes with are kinda dull so the colors arent really used.
Other than that.. love the radio, mp3 and its definitely original.

bluetooth?? Its bulky and boring and at present i'm receving texts up
to 17 hours late on O2. I suppose its good if you just want a phone

I got hold of my Nokia 7270 almost a week ago and so far it has been
excellent. As i already have a Sony Ericsson K700i (which is probably
the best phone for features) I needed a phone which LOOKED good. And
so far it has passed with flying colours. Part of the 'fashion range'
from Nokia, I've had more than my fair share of stares when i classily
pulled it out in public with my MP3 song as my ringtones blarring out.
Some might say the worst feature is the lack of bluetooth, but as i
have a phone with bluetooth, it doesn't affect me as much. It has infa-red
which is just as good if you can be patient sending files. I would say
the worst feature is the external screen, which as mentioned above uses
STN technology instead of TFT. Slightly tinting the luxury look of this
phone. At the moment i am addicted to the game which came free in the
phone called Disco. But lets not get into that. Overall i would reccomend
it - if like me, sometimes you need to look and feel good!

I bought my Nokia 7270 for £99.99 with O2 Line Advance last month
- and sent it back after 2 days. Maybe I had a dodgy one, but the back
was loose and some buttons rattled - whole thing felt cheapa and bulky.
Wallpapers and display themes are dull in colour and too stylised. Camera
features: disappointing for a phone I had to pay for. Am replacing it
with a free Samsung E720 - just to try something new. If that's no good
I'll stick with my trusty old Nokia 7210!! A shame, because I've always
been happy with Nokia, but they seem to be disappearing up their own
backside in trying to be too different.

This phone is way cooler than any that nokia has ever produce. For a
clamshell phone, it has a lot to offer. First of all, it is designed
to do away with an external antenna, which is not such a common feature
amongst clamshell phones. It also has enough memory space to store numerous
amount of mp3 clips, and when played back through it's speaker, sounds
sharp and distinctive, but not as good as the speaker on SE K700. Built
quality impresses with a mix of piano-style plastic covers, real steel
covers, and a variety of cloths to snap on the phone. true it is a tad
heavy, but that just gives you the impression that the phone is built
without compromising it's quality.
