Nokia 7280 review

 Review: May 2005  

Last updated June 2006

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: The Nokia 7280 is the third and most extreme of Nokia's trio of "fashion phones" - the other two being the Nokia 7260 and Nokia 7270.

Today's best buy: Nokia 7280 Mobile Phone - Si ... from Amazon (£409)



The 7280 has a unique design. In fact, it's a phone that defines the word "unique". There is no keypad, only select, send, end, and 2 soft keys. Instead, the phone is operated using a voice-activated user interface. The phone has an active slide that opens to reveal the camera. You can also answer and end calls by opening and closing the slide.

Now, you're probably wondering "how does it work?" or maybe just "does it work?"

The phone is intended to be operated mainly through a voice-activated interface, and voice-dialling and simple voice commands seem to work well. However, relying on voice commands is quite risky, as they can easily go wrong especially in noisy environments (parties, clubs, etc.) Also voice dialling will only work for pre-configured numbers. If you want to dial a different number, or if voice dialling just isn't working for you, then you need to start using the keys. As we mentioned, there's no numeric keypad, but there is a select key, 4 soft keys and a rotating pad - a little like the controls on an iPod. The rotating pad is used to navigate through the on-screen menu. This makes for a clumsy user-interface that is only really suitable for occasional use. Whilst scrolling through a list of names in order to make a call may be a pain, texting is very difficult indeed. You need to scroll through a list of characters using the select button to select each one. Even with predictive text, sending messages this way is going to make you wish you'd got a normal keypad.

Visually the 7280 is stunning, finished in black lacquer, red and chrome, with a mirror-like display that can actually be used as a mirror. A small Nokia fabric label sticks out from one end, and the top of the phone flashes red when in use. The screen lights up when you slide the phone open. The handset is slim and lightweight and fits easily into a pocket or handbag. It has been compared with Art Deco lipstick, and that pretty well describes how it looks.

Let's take a look at the features that you get. The display is a small 65k colour screen featuring a subtle red glow that "exudes mystery and excitement" according to the Nokia blurb. The camera is VGA resolution and there's no video recorder, just a video playback facility. There's no camera flash, so taking pictures at night is going to produce disappointing results (despite the 7280 being marketed primarily as a phone for night-time use!) The phone includes an FM radio but no MP3 player. In other words, if you strip away the styling, this is a very ordinary phone with limited features that would probably retail for not much more than £100. But that misses the point of the 7280.

Reading the Nokia marketing material, it's clear that Nokia don't intend the 7280 to be used for regular business or daytime use. Instead it's designed as a second phone, or a "night phone". Viewed in this way, it seems to be a much more realistic option - at the end of the working day, you leave your normal phone behind and step out into the night with the 7280 in your pocket, to be used for calling, taking fun pics, occasional texts and general posing.

In conclusion, don't buy it for its features, definitely don't buy it for value-for-money, be aware of its limitations and preferably use it as a second phone. But if you want to create a big impression and have people drooling with curiosity to see your phone, then this is the one! The Nokia 7380 updates the look and features of the 7280.

OK. first of all, let me say that i STRONGLY advise you not to listen to these other people who, well frankly, are illiterate morons. I mean, they rate this phone with one star, and complain that it has no JAVA or keypad. seriously?!? DID YOU EVEN LOOK AT THE PHONE YOU WERE BUYING?!? if you wanted a phone with JAVA then BUY ONE!.. But don't sit there and moan because YOU didn't do your research. Anyway, this phone does EXACTLY what it says it does, it looks great, calls are great, it defiantly turns heads, its extremely unique, and is all around a fun phone to have. The camera is not too bad, no worse than my last phone. If you want great pictures, um, buy a camera. I don't text so that really was not an issue when i was deciding on this phone. If you are one of these speed-texting freaks who NEED the unlimited text plan, then no, this probably isn't the right phone for you. I don't see how this phone could be "only for girls." Obviously right? haha, its a great looking phone for ANYONE. So if you are similar to me, and just want a functioning, unique, stylish, different, reliable phone; yes i recommend the Nokia 7280... BUT PLEASE..before you buy any phone, the BEST thing you can do is make sure you do your RESEARCH FIRST!

I have had this phone for more than two years and I can say it is pretty good.It has good features- VGA camera(does not record video) Bluetooth, Infrared, MP3, FM radio(I've used this feature quite a lot) great interface as well as design.However I found many problems though.For example, every time you want to get peep of the clock I had to open the fone- it can not show the clock as a screensaver- it always had to be the looking- glass- no bad- it was useful, but it can not be turn off- as a rule after few seconds the morror appeared on the display. Well, there is a light indicator, wich illuminate red light smoothly, when the phone is at stand-by and vigoriusly, when I've missed a call, or have an SMS.The ringtones are fantastic, they are so unique, as the phone itself is! The waltpapers are great as well- they so represent beatiful and stylish pictures and animations!Another problem was the batery- now, when the phone is used almost 2 years- it is very weak- stand-by around 2- 2,5 days.:-(- the battery can't change one big MINUS!Shall I mention the design- only a few words- the upper part slides- great effect- it slides so smoothly- there is a assistant mechanism- works great I wonder- how many times I have opened the phone- well the right number is either 1470, either - 730 don't know- I made a simple equation- once upon a day -730 and twice- 1470 for 2 years. So conclusion- if you want a stylish phone, with reasonable features and unreasonable high price about 400 dollars, and you do not care about SMS or megapixel camera, but still want bluetooth and unique stylish design- buy it- it will be your stylish accessory- secret mobile- it is great choice for girls, do not laugh, i know I'm not a girl, but I'm a gay, so there was not much difference, in spite of the fact that other pupils at collage laughted at me at the baggining, calling me "Gay" , but after that I kissed a boy in front of my whole class, they understand, and stopped- ao boys the phone is for girls and gay- boys only, sorry!

The phone is excellent. It is a fashion phone. Comments about practical aspects do not play here! This phone is the art and should be treated that way. If somebody wants all-functional-smart-ScFi telephone then s/he can buy one - there are dozens of models, with all the latest Windows and Symbians. I would also add that I don't think this is a girls phone only! The comparisons with lipstick and similar are not objective. I have never seen a lipstick of this shape and this size im my life!!! Lipsticks are much smaller, more curved, do not have buttons, etc. This phone looks much more like an MP3 player or hi-tech digital camera. If this phone is a girls phone because of its shape, then all MP3 players and nice cameras are designed for girls only too! The whole serie 7 is about style and fashion, regardless of your gender! I like all those phones.

It's difficult to take most of these reviews seriously. Why? Because most of these morons can't even spell! If you can't even spell you probably can't read very well either. My guess is that you are a dimwit when it comes to technology and there's still a flashing 12:00 on your VCR somewhere. Please, if you are technically challenged, stay away from reviewing what you do not understand. Sheesh! This is just a plain old phone with lot's of style and a new user interface. No java, no great internet access, not a great camera and you can't play Quake on it. The user interface does exactly what it was designed to do and it's styled to impress. The phone works just fine. Period. You want to take great pics, get a camera.

Now this phone is poping up all over with NOKIA name on it and is not helping Nokia. If you have this phone GOOD LUCK!! Within a year, I think you will give it away. SORRY SINGTE!!!!!

I had many problems and bugs with this phone when I just bought it. The screen was turning off suddenly when playing ring tones, or when I got called. sometimes, accepting calls did reject the call. And sometimes the phone hang for a few seconds etc. Also the ringing tone was ascending when you put it on ringinn (and not on ascending). Finally, i found out that I had an old firmware version 3.24 on it. Press *#0000# and it should tell you which version you have. So, I went to a nokia service centre and they upgraded to the last version and now all the above problems are solved. It is amazing, now I can really enjoy it. BTW, the Ipod wheel, you get used to it. The predicitve spelling has really improved, and the wheel makes little clicks. You have to use the voice commands as much as possible and put the most used numbers with voice tags as well. You press 'names' or the button on your bluetooth for 3 seconds and then voice activation starts.

This phone will definitely make heads turn. The first day I brought it into the office, ALL my colleagues asked "Is that really a phone? How do you open it? Where's the keypad?" and I had to tutor every one of them, many times. Personally, I bought this phone because of the looks. I am fully aware that text messaging would need a little more effort on this phone and the somewhat limited VGA camera, even before buying it. My advise is if you're going for looks more than feature (I tell you, girls drool over this phone), pick this one. If you're going for feature more than look, than there are other Nokia phones that excel better. Secondly, my advise is - use this phone as a secondary phone, probably for casual/party use, never for an office use. Typing messages can be a hassle. But honestly, you have to admit, it's quite a gorgeous design, right ?!

How do you use this thing. I bought one about a week ago and after having immense trouble with it eventually took it back to the store. Its very fiddly and just does not work like a proper phone. Do not get one unless you have very small fingers!

I wasnt sure when i first started hearing all the hype, but i really think this phone is fantastic. I find mine so easy to use, even without the traditional keypad, and even answering a call makes me feel like a 5 year old seeing Star Wars for the first time. This is an exciting phone that will have you exploring its features for hours. Personally, i hope this phone encourages more phone designers to push the boundries out. Nice one Nokia, and thanks for the pretty lights too.

the sleek design has many people bursting to see it. their curiosity is almost pushed to the max, wanting to know how each feature manages to operate. the controls itself are quite unexpectantly easy to use and with minimal buttons it allows you to control and use it much more effectively. the camera is not as clear as some of the recent models but i feel that this phone is out on its own and for anyone who wants style and sophistication this phone is definately a must.
