Nokia N76 Review
We won't be reviewing the N76. Vodafone withdrew the phone from sale
because so many were returned. It's not one that we can recommend and
it's fast disappearing from the shops - even before it properly arrived!

The phone works alright and to those who think it isn't cool i simply
tell them they do not know what they mean. i have mine for two years
now and works like a new phone! however, it looks 10 years old :( the
cover peels off badly. where can i get an original casing?
Reviewed by Carolina from Chile on 11th Aug 2011
I love this phone! I've been a fan of Nokia for a long time and they
do not disappoint with this phone. I got only a few months ago and despite
being several years old it still works great. good camera, loud speaker,
I haven't had any problems with it. I wish it had a way of using the
flash as a torch though. and I miss having a qwerty keyboard.

Well, I had this phone for less than 24 hours and the main display is
blank. When unboxing the phone I was looking for the mem card. The card
was already in the phone. The phone was most likely a referb or returned
and just repacked and sent right back out. This phone is made in China
and the packageing is made in the US what a trip. I really think that
the people that have or are having problems with this phone are the
ones who got a phone that was returned or was a referb. The software
is not working right as well when you connect it to your pc. It is going
back and we will try another one and if that's NG it's history. The
one think this phone has is the BEST CALL quality. People have no idea
you are on a cell phone. I am using AT&T as my provider in the US. The
phone is GREAT for making calls and receiving them if you can see the
screen that is.

I´ve had my N76 for 6 months and it looks and works like junk!
The chrome paint has peeled off (in a normal, "ladylike" use), it turns
on and off by itself, the battery doesn´t last for 2 days etc etc.
I´m not happy at all, I wanna return it and never buy the same
phone again! I give two stars only because I like the red color!
Reviewed by jshl from uk on 6th Feb 2008
when it's working right this is a good phone! i have had problems with
it vibrating non stop when I go to answer a call,and the only way to
stop it is to remove the battery.Had the same problem when creating
muvees and looking at photos,also it developed a habit of switching
itself off and then back on particularly after using the vidoe recorder
and camera.but other than that it's ok! will be on my 3rd very soon
so this is something to bear in mind,prob not a good buy.

I do not believe! Just four weeks later, the chrome along the edge of
the flip is chipped in several places and it's peeling off at the edge
where the chrome strip widens.I live in Brazil. The Nokia Corporation
in Finland need know that!
Reviewed by Alien from Singapore on 31st Dec 2007
arghh... i really used to like nokia phones a lot and this phone simply
came as a disappointment. the music player is only just OK. not so bad
yet no so good also. the camera is still acceptable only for a Nseries.
but the silver covering thing outside the phone just makes it worse.
the stupid thing just comes off making my phone looks so screwed up.
the design really looks nice when you first buy it. after a week or
two, the horror comes. seriously. o.o

Reviewed by Sunil from India on 29th Nov 2007
I had mine bought 6 months back ,no problems at all and i think the
design is great! As mentioned scratch prone due to chrome outer layer
but better protect in the leather case. Camera is good and resolution
is fine. The flash works better than i expected and this is definitely
a very good phone.
Reviewed by Paul McW from England on 5th Nov 2007
Had mine for 4 months now and have had no problems at all. I have updated
the S60/3 firmware twice, to keep it as up to date as possible. I make
sure all programmes are switched off, along with bluetooth and 3G, which
ensures lengthy period without charging and no re-starts etc. I protect
all my phones with a plastic or leather case, which takes care of wear
and tear. The screen is as good as any I have seen and is a good size.
Realplayer films can be watched at full screen, unlike other nokia's
I have had in the past. I like the MP3 player which allows you to see
8 tracks, making scrolling through the listings a smooth easy process
and to be able to work it with the flip closed. The ability to use your
own 3.5mm connector headphones to listen to music is a feature all mobiles
should have. The internal speaker is pretty good and it's loud enough
to listen too when in the shower. I have installed some games which
look good, but bring me to the downside of this phone, the keyboard.
Not much feedback and it's too too easy to hit the wrong button, especially
when using the navigation buttons. The camera did a half decent job
when I was forced to use it when I didn't have a proper camera with
me. The ability to install games on to my mobile from my PC, instead
of expensively downloading them from an operator is the main reason
I stick with Nokias. The only let down for me with this phone is it's
keyboard, which is dire. Apart from this it's a good phone and has proven
to be reliable for me.

The n76.a very sexy phone. has a very elegent design. just have to be
careful with a phone like this because it can be easily scratched. camera
is quite good ( 2 mega pixels ). If you're looking for a phone with
a very very outstanding camera, this is'nt the phone for you, but if
you're looking for a phone that has a good quality musoc player then
buy the n76 NOW!

It is ok. The camera isn't brilliant and the screen went funny when
I had it after 2 weeks. I don't advise anybody buying this phone. Flip
phones are not very good because they always snap and thats what happened

I was expecting a better deal at nearly $400 (Rs 16k, 18k just a month
ago) to begin with its resolution is terrible compared to 6270 I had
(and broke to pieces because its up navigation key gave too much problem).
that was beginning of the end. samsung phones priced at Rs 10k range
have far better resolution. more surprises. the activation sms had no
reply from nokia.! duh,, so nearly 100mb of space is wasted with "loaded"
stuff.! there is poor navigation problems. you open sms and duh, there
is no reply shortcut.! who was the moron working at its interfaces?
it refused to setup messaging properly.! what? i had to look into another
N76 to get messagin center number.! who knows what this number is.???
other softwares are pretty basic. calculator sucks. fonts are designed
to hide low resolution of screen and still fails to hide it. anyway,
nokia is dumping too many phones in india and corrupt babus of india
have no problem with it.. all i need to know is that never ever buy
nokia again. btw, camera too is very basic... i just hope sony erricsion
puts a larger screen and add more resolution with their phones.. their
phones have perfect camera and audio.. lights are pretty attractive
too.. priced lower but wudn't mind paying more for better resolution.
anyone listening? ps: avoid n76.. if nothing else your eyes wud have
to work pretty hard to identify keys for any sms.!

Well, after reading all the bad things about the N76, what can i say?
I love mine and i've had it since June 2007. Its true that it can crash
but it gets back to normal after a few secs, i think that's a problem
with all the Nseries not only with the N76. This phone is class and
it had a designer look which makes it stand out from every other phone.
I keep mine in a leather nokia wallet and i've got absolutely no problems
with scratches. Only thing is that it gets a bit dirty but hey, all
phones are the same nowadays. So my word to any flip-phone fan, you
want the best. go buy the best in its category and that's the N76.

uh!!. i'm still using it right now and i'm going to buy a blackberry
8800(fortunately, at indonesia u don't need a contract for ur cellphones!
