Nokia 7390 review
| ||Review: March 2007
Last updated June 2009
In a nutshell: Available in Bronze Black (pictured here) and Powder Pink, the Nokia 7390 is a dramatically beautiful phone that will appeal to both men and women.
It's a compact phone, although heavier than average, with a well laid out keypad, 4-way scroll key and 2 soft keys. The design is a standard flip-design, making it more usable than the rotating 7373 or the keyless 7380. The user interface is the Series 40 interface, familiar to most Nokia users, making the phone easy to use, despite its advanced functions.
The 7390 is a 3G phone and is equipped with two cameras. The main camera is an excellent 3 megapixel camera with autofocus (to ensure sharp pictures) and a flash (for low light and nightime photography). The camera can also record video at a resolution of 352 x 288 pixels and 15 frames/second. On the inside of the phone is a second VGA camera, which can be used for 3G video calling or for self portraits. The main display is excellent - not only is it a large 2.2 inch high-resolution screen with 240 x 320 pixels, but it has an incredible 16 million colours. Nokia have really moved their display technology forward with this screen, which is also used in the Nokia 6300. The display isn't as bright as some other models however. The exterior screen is also good, with 262,000 colours.
The multimedia capabilities don't stop there. The 7390 has a music player that supports every common music format, including MP3, WMA and AAC. There's also an FM radio with Visual Radio support. Nokia have generously included a headset and 128 Mbyte card in the sales package to get you started. The memory card can be upgraded to a maximum of 2 Gybtes, and the standard headset can be replaced with a Bluetooth stereo headset. It's also possible to plug in a standard 3.5mm headset using an adaptor. Even without a headset, sound reproduction from the built-in stereo speakers is pretty good. Music files can also be used as ringtones, and MPEG4 files can be used for video ringtones too - cool!
On the negative side, battery life is typical for a 3G phone, i.e. not brilliant. Also, it seems to have problems with freezing and random shutting down.
Nokia 7390 features include:
- 3G video calling
- Main display: 16 million colours, 240 x 320 pixels (2.2 inches)
- External display: 262,144 colours, 160 x 128 pixels

I got the nokia 7390 from cex retailer. It's a little back dated but
I fell inlove with it first at first sight. Had it for under a week
and just love everything about it. Despite being back dated it packs
a punch for a tiny elegant phone. Love the choose of menu styles the
vibrant colour and the way to really make it your own. I am using above
my newer phones it is simply delightful. Only draw back is the phone
lacks a 3.5 mm jack and you tube vids can be a little slow but part
from that it is worth every cent.

I've had this phone for about 3 years now. Got it as a birthday present.
I can say that it is a great phone and though I've changed phone a few
times, whenever my new one broke, I'll always go back to this phone.
It is really easy to use and I love how you can change the themes on
this. You can also use a video clip as a ringtone (although I don't
see the point of this but still cool nonetheless). The camera isn't
great but it's not bad and it does come with flash and auto-focus. Having
said that, I had a Motorola V3x before this phone and the camera at
only 2mp was better in certain aspect. You can have separate wallpaper
for the main screen inside and the mini screen outside so if you can't
make up your mind which picture you want to use, you can always have
2 different one and a different screensaver as well. The sound really
depends on the quality of your music file (applies to all phone). If
your music file is crappy to begin with then of course it'll sound crappy
on the phone too. However, I must say the ringtone isn't that loud even
when it is set to the maximum because the speaker is located inside
the flip so when the flip is closed, the sound will be noticeably quieter
too. The phone broke once and it was so hard for me to repair it because
apparently this phone is Limited Edition. It was expensive to fix it
too. I'm pretty sure they don't make this phone anymore. I still love
it and will still go back to it when I need a back up phone.

I loved this phone- the only reason i have changed phones i because
i lost it :( the camera could have been a bit better - but as a normal
phone it was great. Not complicated to use and looks cute too. overall
was a very good phone, not too high-tech and could do most things you
would expect of a mobile.

I bought my 7390 nearly 2 years ago. Pretty expensive but I love this
phone, it's: beautiful with nice big dials, easy and fast menou, great
stereo sound, video recording & voice recording, good features, 2 great
screens, 3g, flash so you can take photos in the dark, the camera is
3,2 megapixel so the photos you're taking are just fine, I can play
almost every music format type, bluetooth & infrared, pretty much everything
that a person seaks in a mobile phone. Some of the problems are: the
user interface is S40 instead of symbian S60 and that means that every
time you take out the memory card and put it back in, you have to adjust
again the ringtones, the message tone and the screensaver or the wallpaper!
that is annoying. When you want to move a file in a subfolder you've
created in a folder, it says you can't move it there cause it's pretty
much the same file! (but that's ok cause you can do it later with the
usb cable)Also, when you leave it open 24/7 or when you rush it,sometimes
it starts reseting itself .Lot's of times, although you have the volume
setup high, when you play songs it doesn't sound loud and you have to
adjust it from the side and pump up the volume from there, same thing
with the earphone. The headphones are so big that doesn't fit in my
ears!! Αfer a while you're using the shortcut for the camera, it
says "operation failed"-like Mutheu from Kenya said-whenever you try
to take a photo and it doesn't save the picture you've taken although
it shows that you took it, but only when you use the shortcut, when
you actually go to the menu and select camera it has no problem. I haven't
noticed any buttery or freezing problems myself.Nor repeatadly voice
mails. I would like to say that ALL phones, at first they're great and
after a while they come up with something and it's not just in 7390...and
that is because in now days everything is made like this so it can be
replaceble and that the companies can make money from us buying!! If
every phone than one bought could last forever...the mobile industry
would die!!! So give a chunce to 7390 and buy it. I will buy it again
when this 7390 I have breaks down completely, I sure hope that the price
falls down a little :P

( : the camera is pretty good quality but once you press the button
it takes about 3 seconds until it actually takes the picture, something
to get used to. the keys are really easy to use and the front panel
thing is really handy when your playing music, chekcing the time or
the date. battery life isnt the greatest especially if you play music

I had this phone for over a year now... and the first few months were
fabulous. Then the phone started rebooting. This was a problem on the
7390 series, which I had changed 3 times before I took the 7373 as a
replacement. I also experienced the 'operation failed' error with the
camera. Finally, the phone just went dead a few days ago. I hope something
can be done to get it working again.It's a nice and cool looking phone,
with easy to use functions and applications, but why did they make it
with so many problems on it??

Reviewed by Joe from England on 28th Jul 2008
I agree with G and Julie. I have been scouring the net to find someone
who has had the same problems as me and found hundreds. It seems from
others' comments that 14 months is lifespan of this phone. I have had
this phone for 14 months now and it has become so inoperable that I've
had to buy a new cheap handset to see out the remainder of my contract.
So, down to the problems: As with Julie, an incredibly frustrating niggle
is that I keep receiving the same text saying i have voicemail over
and over again (32 and counting in the past 18 hours!). As also stated
by Julie, the phone keeps crashing...regardless of what I'm doing with
the phone, a white screen shows and it takes about five minutes for
it to sort itself out, taking me back to the homescreen, losing any
data that I was working with at the time. I have a hunch that the phone
really isn't built for temperatures over about 12 degrees, because through
the winter, it's been less temperamental. Last summer it was annoying,
but now, when the temperature is around 20 degrees, I have no chance-
it's 10:30 am and in the hour and a half I've been awake, it's crashed
seven times. To the camera- when it works and the phone isn't crashing,
the resolution is good, but the features are pitifully scarce compared
to rival models from sonyericsson...but as Julie says, it takes a few
starts to get going: 'Operation Failed' is the message that has greeted
me when starting the camera application for many months now. As G has
commented, battery life is unacceptably low, and this has always been
a problem- from the moment I've had it, it has been out of battery after
a day and a half, less if i want to use it for luxuries such as texting
and calls! I'm wondering why I ever chose this phone, I'd advise all
to steer clear of it. It may seem bearably OK in the beginning, but
after a while it will just give up. Very disappointing indeed.This was
Nokia's last chance to impress me, but for build quality, functionality
and, well, the fact that they work, I'm converting to sonyericsson.
This phone deserves no stars, but one is the minimum. Rest assured its

I've had my nokia 7390 for 14 months with no probelms at all. I bought
it because of the the features and color(pink of course). I wanted everything
in a phone , and its has been perfect.Not one problem, in over a year.Voice
calls and commands are fun :o) Loud ringtones and loud MP3 player.Great
themes and easy to install.Really good photos and vidoes. I've never
been happier with a phone . No freezing , no problems. I've got heaps
of MP3's , photos and videos stored ,and use the bluetooth with my car
GPS bluetooth all the time to talk when i'm driving . I love it. Its
not sold in stores in Australia, so I bought it off ebay because I loved
its features and it was pink of course! I only keep it on about 16 hours
a day and its battery will last 4 days. For those who have had problems
, I had no idea. I've not had a problem and this phone was everything
I thought it would be and more. i'm 100% happy and trouble free with

This phone started out well and i was impressed with everything it oculd
do, although this view was shirt lived, it now has numerous faults that
a 14 month old phone on contract should have. When you recieve a voicemail,
it notifies you with a text - fair enough, but it doesn't stop. I had
a voicemail yesterday and in the space of time, my phone has easily
sent me 30 texts about the voicemil even though it has been deletd.
Another problem, is half way through a text or a song, the screen will
go white, turn the phone off, then come back on again - might not sound
liek a big deal but trust me it is! Antoher problem, whenever you try
and take a picture, it says 'operationf ailed' or 'phone on standby'
not good enough and nto impressed for all the hype this phone gets

Im really pleased with this phone, its nice looking and the features
are just what I was looking for. The battery life is fine for me as
I dont have my phone on ALL the time, but with a whole night's charging,
my phone can stay on for about 1-2 full days. I think that people who's
phone are crashing and buttons falling off have a badly made phone,
but mine and many others with 5 stars are happy with it. Mine has crashed
a few times for a few seconds but I'd let that slip because the rest
of the phone is great!

This is gorgeous the prettiest phone around, but it depends on what
features you want. I was disapointed at the lack of 3G features, due
to it lacking mobile tv and high qaulity internet, but it is marketed
I think for video calling, MP4 and video recording and video MMS, which
is OK is you want them. I buy for features and I prefer a more advanced
model but I would buy only this one if all I wanted was something fashionable.
If you're not so concerned about feature technology then buy.

"Operation not possible" problem when using camera and frequent reboots
:- Problem lies in incompatible formats of mp3 (must be less than 128
kbps), wma and m4a ( <64 kbps). Loading higher bit rate or corrupted
songs will immediately cause problems above. Just remove microSD card
and delete corrupted songs or format card. The phone is absolutely stable
if microSD and files in it are good.

I got my phone in powder pink about a month ago and I think it's great!
It's so helpful that it comes with a memory card and it is really easy
to use. I have had absolutely no problems with it, the games are addictive!
The design is beautiful!! Since I got my phone 3 other people have bought
it! The buttons on the front are wicked too! The only problem is that
the battery life. The battery lasts for about 3 days. I love this phone,

Really liked the look of the phone but since I've had it, all of 3 months,
I've only been able to use it for 1! the camera keeps failing "Operation
Not Possible" and even replacements suffer the same thing. This phone
is not built to last. Really disappointed as this is the first Nokia
in 10yrs to have gone wrong. Now switching to Sony Ericsson.

Really good feat. Cam is great. Really lite for its size. But offten
crashes, and mic turns it self of when you are calling someone. Only
way to fix it is to turn off. Pain in the ass if an important call.
Had the phone 4 mths now, cant see it lasting much longer starting to
feel a bit flimsy, slider getting loose.

Is it just me or does anyone else find this phone very bulky? I went
from Sony ericsson k750i to this. Waited ages for it and have to admit
it is a bit of a let down. Don't get me wrong, brill camera, good video,
good features but still just not what im looking for.

i got this phone yesterday but i was a bit dubious getting a nokia again
as i feel nokias are nowhere as reliable as they used to be,but this
phone has restored my faith. im really happy with it,its unique(i've
seen one person with it and that was back in january0 so thats a big
plus as i like to be different to everyone else.the camera is more than
good enough for those occasional snaps and they print out good too.the
buttons are nice and big to type on,maybe a lil bit hard to push but
hopefully will loosen up over time. lots of ways to customise it by
cool themes wallpapers and screensavers. for those people who say their
ringtones are quiet,i think you may have a faulty one as mine absoloutley
blasts it out and there is no way i could miss mine ringing,if anything
i have to turn the volume down as its a little too loud. the battery
is fair especially after turning off the 3g side of it,its now gsm so
lasts a little longer as its no longer trying to lock onto the 3g signal.the
only thing is i really really wish i had the brown version as i love
brown and im not really a pink person. so overall i think anyone cant
go wrong buying this phone and its brill so buy.

This is a great phone! I had the 7390 & really enjoyed it. However,
it got stolen! I did lots of research before buying a new replacement-
and the winner is? Nokia 7390! Yes, it's so good that I'm buying it
again! Plus points: easy texting, big buttons, big screen, good camera,
music sounds good, easy to use menus, beautiful looking phone, well
made & feels sturdy, can post notes on the main screen, now available
on half price line rental - so it's affordable!!!. Negatives: a bit
heavy for my liking, I don't like flip phones, I have to use 2 hands
when texting as it's top heavy to hold with one hand when the flip is
open, not all the menus can be organised the way you want, I was expecting
the stereo speakers to be better & phone must be held just so to the
ear or you can't hear the other person talking. I was also considering
the Nokia 6300, N73 & SE810i. It was difficult to choose, but I've gone
back to a 7390.

Had my phone for just over a month now and it is very good!!! Only thing
is I went for a pink and white one which at the time I thought would
be cute. Now I am changing my mind and wish that I had gone for the
black version but that is just me being picky! The phone itself is very
good and I have had no real problems with it. There is a few times when
you try and change themes where it can freeze and the ringtones are
a little quiet. Apart from this it is a lovely phone and I would recommend
it to everyone!!!!!!!

i,ve had this phone now for a couple of months and love it, always had
nokia, but went for a change to the samsung e900, big mistake, so went
back to nokia, what can i say, if you love phones and everything that
comes with it, this is the handset for you. Best features, obviously
the camera, music features and nokia specs, only drawback, if i had
to say one was that i,d like the ringtone volume to be louder, but thats
just me being picky, its usually at the bottom of my bag!

I got this phone to replace my N80. The N80 was great but I found it
so slow. I loved the active standby settings and was delighted to find
that the 7390 had the same format. Fantastic phone, everything I need
and with S40 you can download extra software. Although there is not
as much software available as there is for an S60, it is increasing
on the Nokia website>

I just swopped this for my old Nokia 6230. I'm getting used to it & liking it more & more. Plus points: decent camera, upgradable memory, easy music player, brilliant predictive text, easy navigation, big clear buttons, humongous screen with heavenly clarity. Negative points: a bit bulky for my little girly hand, when flipped open it's a bit top heavy, i.e. when texting I have to have a good grip on it or use 2 hands to hold it, as with my 6230 I could text with one hand. I also loved the simplicity of my 6230 for navigation whereas the 7390 has a lot more extras, so takes time to figure out how to streamline the use to my liking. The biggest disappointment is the music sound is inferior to the 6230! Why, I don't know as the 7390 is supposed to have stereo speakers. I also don't like using a flip phone. Verdict: better than Samsungs & some of the Nokia N-series of similar specs. As good as the higher end Sony Erikssons. The 7390 is one of the better phones.
