Nokia N76

 In a nutshell  
 

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!

Best buy: Nokia 130 from Tesco Direct (£19.00)

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?

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!

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!

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

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.

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.

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.
