Nokia 7600 review

 Review: October 2004  
 

Last updated January 2005

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: The Nokia 7600 is Nokia's first generally available 3G handset in the UK (the 6650 was not fully released in the UK).



 

Review

It's equipped with a wide range of multimedia capabilities including video recording and multimedia playback.

Disappointingly for a 3G phone it does not support video messaging and the screen is the worst on any current 3G phone, but hey, it's a Nokia!

The multimedia player lets you play music files stored in MP3 or AAC format, using either a stereo headset or the phone's integrated loudspeaker. Music files can be downloaded wirelessly from a compatible PC using the Nokia Audio Manager software which is included in the Nokia PC Suite. You can also use MP3 or AAC music tracks as ringtones.

Connectivity is excellent, with a choice of USB cable, infrared and wireless Bluetooth™ connections. The Bluetooth headset is essential really, as the phone is clearly not designed to be used in a conventional hand-held way for making calls.

This brings us on to the usability question. First the shape: it's a love-it or hate-it shape, and that's up to the individual, but there's no denying that the keypad loses points when it comes to ease-of-use. Single-handed texting is out of the question.

Overall the Nokia 7600 is a strange beast. It's design is unique, which can be good or bad depending on your view. It's a 3G phone, but without the high level of functionality normally associated with 3G phones. It's key features are surely video recording and music playback, but with a poor display, excessive weight and inadequate memory it doesn't really make the grade.

I owned one of these beasts briefly a few years ago. Probably the worst phone i ever had the misfortune to use. Stupid keypad design, similar to the siemens sx1-a much better phone if you want one with a bad keypad- terrible display quality-feels cheap-horrible fascias-poor camera even for a vga camera,and just a total piece of junk. If you are thinking of buying one from ebay or something as you like the quirky looks of it my advice is dont bother. Get the nokia 7610 instead,it also has a weird teardrop shape but is light years ahead of this in every respect.

This phone was a gift for christmas 2005 and after over 2 years of persevering I have finally gave up and replaced it. My main complaint was the shape, aquward, difficult to fit anywhere, impossible to text with one hand (almost impossible to text at all!) and the look of it was just a real downturner for me. Although the this is the 1st widely available 3G phone it was impossible to get it working. However, it did have it's good points the memory was excellent, stored well over 200 pictures, plus videos and songs! Overall a fairly average phone, with better ones available. I wouldn't rush out to buy it!

My girlfriend bought this phone around three weeks before Easter and it is a brilliant handset. It is on O2 and it was able to pick up reception in Pickering where no other phone could. The camera is good for the price, as is the MP3 player that is capable of playing full length MP3 songs that can be stored on the phone's 32MB of internal memory. Unfortunately, however you cannot expand the memory on this handset but for the price, I wouldn't expect this phone to have memory expansion. this phone uses the Nokia browser which is the best for browsing WAP sites as it is easy to use and you can enlarge the text which is good if you are a visually impaired user.

I think this fone is a ledgend. Ive had it for over a year now and still think its great.Its so simple to use, having bluetooth and infared is a great add on cos not everyone has both of theese functions. The txting is as easy as any other phone,yh you cant txt with 1 hand but when ppl see the 7600 they seem to be impressed. The camera on its amazing quality i think its better than the motorola v3 camera anyday and 50 mins of recording is great its not like the qualitys poor either, the USB facility is also very handy for getting pics of mates n stuff onto the 7600 via the computer. The wap facilitys also great ive got 216 ringtones from using o2 wap websites which didnt even cost me anything. i usually have a verry good signal. Overall i think this is a outstanding phone and 1 of the best around and probally will stay the best with its unique shape, If nokia made a upgrade of this phone i would be the 1st person to get it.

This phone seems too be getting mixed reveiws and I can see why. It's a bit like Uma Thurman. You either thinks she the most gorgeous thing on two legs or you thinks she is a gangly ugly bird with big feet. I won't say where I stand on that one but what I will say is that this is a pretty decent phone in my veiw. More features than an odeon multiplex and more extras that a packet of strong mints. Yeah I know the phone has a distinctly odd apperance but I think its quite endering. And as for the whole texting thing all I have too say is, Its good to talk. Also when you consider it has MP3, it has sod all memory but if you want too store loads of songs buy a bloody Ipod. It has enough memory for music too keep me from dozing off on the tube in the morning so that will do me. The interface is really easy too use and I like the way eveything has its place. It ain't cluttered or confusing and the screen, despite reports to the contrary, is very clear. Look at it this way folks, how many other phone generate this many differences in opinion. It's a talking point. And this alone merits it an extra star in my veiw. There is a draw back. Due to the funky layout texting is a pain, although I personly think its a waste of time so it ain't of consequence to me. Any way thats me done weither you love it or hate it you can't deny it is an experience owning one. Thanks JC

I have had this phone for 10 months - on 3, at first it was great, unique, caught everyones eye, However that soon wared off when Nokia bought out similar versions. The phone itself is a nice idea, i got used to the stage layout and the amount of space you are given is great. But it is not compatible with video messaging, screen savers dont work unless you only view them from the gallery. The reception of three is discusting, i live relativly close to birmingham but i have an average of 1 bar, therefore i am paying to use a phone i cant use! I have noticed also that it likes to delete saved messages if you have not viewed them for a while. Additionaly, the video is not as good as it could be and the quality of speaker is good but could be bigger, you only have to move the phone slightly and you cant hear the person on the other end at all!. Overall, i will be happy to get another phone, nokia i like, 7600 are okish, 3G are pitiful! I wouldnt recommend this phone really, unless you need an experience not to remember!.

This phone was simply excellent value for money, 30 from CPW. It has several killer features: The design - I guess you either love it or loath it! Good quality camera - Unlike many phones, this one comes with a USB cable, so you don't have to pay 25 pence emailing pictures to yourself when you want to see them on a big screen. Mp3 Ringtones - The holy grail of ringtone technology, now you can edit your favorite tracks to use as ringtones, rather than paying 2 to download a tinny midi track. Unfortunately, there are a couple of let-downs that stop it getting that final star: 32MB memory, no card slot - 32 MB is fine for the ringtones and photos, but only enough for about five mp3 tracks, unless you enjoy listening in AM radio quality. Quirky key layout - Unless you have Very long thumbs, you'll need two hands to write text messages. If like myself you consider text messages a waste of time, consider this a five star phone.

It is a really good phone the recorder is 1 min not very long but i hardly ever use it the pictures are very good quality and look even better when put on the computer the only let down points are textin ye its a bit hard at first but you will get used to it soon and the memory thememory isnt enough for it too be an mp3 player but if you dont put songs on it it will last you ages. the video recorder quality isnt so good but its still viewable you can record on default (10 seconds) or maximum (50 mins)its signal isnt that bad ive never lost full signal the games are really rubbish unless you like backgammon and another tetris type game plus you can rent games off 3pay, 3pay is really good i think it givs ya 5 pound credit and 50 mins talk time or 75 texts (you get to choose) 20 mini movies (these are multimedia messages except u can only send videos and 20 video talk mins but it is not compatible with this phone, the battery life is really good so all in all a really really good phone ignore what other people say if it is bad it is a really good phone buy it plus if you dont like 3pay you can get it unlocked for free at www.trycktill.com *** EDITOR'S NOTE: WE INCLUDE THIS LINK FOR INFORMATION.

This phone is a joke! I've have now had it for three months and still can't find any positive with it. I've bought it for two reasons, it was a Nokia (must admit that I've with this phone totally lost all confidence in this brand) and that it was so different from all other phones (wanted something outstanding, not what I experinced untill today the most useless phone that I ever had) First how to use it, the keyborad sucks, it is anoying to try to write SMS (which I as most do quiet often). Second the design, (must admit this was the buying reason for me :-( ) it is not just of coincidence there are now other phone designed like this, it is common sense that one DON'T design it like the 7600. So my advice DON'T buy it if expect yourself actually to use it, the 7600 is totaly useless!!!

Gr8 phone...just had it for a month...75(brand new boxed)...but i'm on Virgin Mobile though...I've never fancied video calls and the other 3G stuff. Gr8 features...but I would have gone for the 7610 if i could get it at a similar price!

This is by no means a rubbish phone but you need to be aware that, although you'd expect the nice Nokia Symbian OS, it's kind of unique on this one and nowhere near as advanced. Plus the buttons are really "plasticky" which is never clear in the photos. Camera works well though, not too bad.

Well, quite frankly I would rather spend my money on a chocolate teapot. The screen quality isn't very clear which was a shame as I wanted to take some photos for a special occasion of my daughter's, and as for the signal it would probably be better coverage in Timbuctu. I really am outraged it's a complete disgrace that they make the phone look so good. If Nokia think that they're doing a good deal, then I'm Naomi Campbell and Tony Blair has managed to have some sense.

3 are rubbish this phone is rubbish my best friend has it and is only reffered to as spocks ear . NEVER BUY A 3 PHONE . if you are on three you will find you drop calls left right and centre this is because 3 piggy back on o2s network(and a mighty fine one at that) but if there are so many 3 people using a phoone mast when on ther call and an o2 person comes along it will drop there call and put the o2 person through. and also with this phone when your trying to ring a taxi after a night on the riz then it takes 10 minutes to dial . YOURS TRULY JAKANORY

this phone has loads of great features, the shape is unusual and eye-catching, it has typical Nokia ease of use, and it takes great pics that are easily transferred to PC. oh yeh, and it has a MP3 player, how great is that? and video of course. i have had no faults with this phone, it is the best one i have used and i have tried a lot of the lastest phones out. the reception on it is fine too, i just love it.

I've had this phone for about 8 months (as at December '04). I still don't know what possessed me to purchase it, but I can tell you, this phone only wins on face value. The screen is not very bright. The keypad is just plain un-ergonomic. I should have waited for the 7610, or the Sharp GX30i. I have a Toshiba E740 PDA (don't get me started on that one, I seem to attract lemons....). My nokia thinks it's the boss, and won't communicate over Bluetooth. I can't get the nokia to work with WinXP Pro as a modem. An interesting thing to note is that when the phone can't find 3 reception (my mobile carrier), it wavers between 1 bar of 3 and 1 bar of roaming, however when i force the phone on to roaming, it gets full reception! Sound quality (and volume) out of this little speaker at the back is DOUBLED when you remove the back cover. Nokia should have investigated that further. Sound quality in a voice call is very good. This is something Nokia has got right. It's a trend I've noticed in the 3315, 6610, and 2100 (other nokia's I've owned). I know you people in Cyberworld will tell me off for complaining about such 'luxuries' in a phone, but when you are paying AUD$100 per month to use this thing (with calls), you expect A LOT!

Not a bad phone. Take's a while to get used to to the shape. Good features and great sound and picture quality. Screen is quite poor mind (I'm comparing it with my previous phone, Nokia 6600). At 40 on Pay As You Go though you can't go wrong really. Overall, great price, decent phone, but some people may disagree. I'll be giving it a few more months. 7610 looks quite nice.... Peace out \m/(>_<)\m/
