Nokia N70: A good Smartphone

Nokia N70 is a smartphone released at 2005 and is one of the first phones seen in the first release of NSeries line of "multimedia computers" by Nokia. It is a smartphone that comes with S60 2nd Edition FP3 interface or Symbian OS. Since it comes with an OS, multi-tasking is possible.The physical appearance of the Nokia N70 is quite good. It is a small candybar style phone. Since it was a small device, the keys in this phone are made smaller compared to its predecessor, the Nokia 6680. The most notable problem in the keypad is the placement of the "2" key. The "2" key is placed closed to the down navigation key and it means that you might experience some accidental key press especially during typing in the keypad.On the right side of the phone, you'll find a RS-MMC card slot and a shutter button. The RS-MMC card slot can be hard to open for those people who have small nails. The shutter key is small and it is quite difficult to press.On the top of the phone you'll find a power button and a stereo loudspeaker. The power button is very small and if you've used Nokia 6680 before, you'll find it very difficult to press. The loudspeaker produces superior quality especially when playing songs using the Music Player.On the back, you'll find a 2 Megapixel Fixed Focus Camera with an LED flash. The camera outputs good quality in normal lighting situations and average quality in low-lighting conditions. Technically speaking, the reason why Nokia N70 provides good quality images because all...

Feature Rich. Small Package.

I used the Nokia N70 for a year and a half on a everyday daily basis and it's a great device, since I was coming from a Nokia 6682. The N70 was great the begining, but I started to notice things as time went on. From the design, to the features, to sound quality, to signal strength to it's overall performance.

The DESIGN is OK. Buttons a little cramped and with them being flat it's hard to gain a sense of feel with them. This is so evident to the #2 buton on the key pad. You'll find yourself clicking the down key on the scroll pad by accident a lot. If the buttons were raised a little, it would of made a huge difference, but I found myself clicking accidently the #2/down key a lot when texting.The camera shutter key on the side is tucked into the base and it's hard to sometimes. The sliding back panel for the camera seems flimsy at times. Plus, accessing the memory card is a task if you don't have some long fingernails. I used a writing pen to take it in and out due to it's placement.

The FEATURESon he phone are great. With it being a Nokia and working off Symbian OS makes it open many third party OS progams and games. I've loaded Opera mini, Acrobat, a few games, music, and even a mini GPS sysem and it handled it all well as long as I didn't them all open at the same time. I wish it came with more internal memory since at times the interface can be quite sluggish even with one program opened.

The SOUND QUALITY is great. Able to hear conversations very well, music player...

mixed feelings

Great device overall, but not without its problems.
Battery life is abysmal (for me, being used to phones that last weeks on a charge instead of days).
It's slow, long response times to button presses.
After about a year the screen had to be replaced (which Nokia did under warranty) after it suddenly failed to render anything but random noise.

That said, it's the best phone I've used since my old 6110 died after 5 years of faithful service.

Lack of something

I think almost all of the features of this N70 cellphone had given me the satisfied feeling of having it but I wonder if it has the capability of having a mobile TV on its features?? That's all..

N70

I think that this Multimedia device is so good, it never bought me any problems, except when making calls or when on the internet, it logs off when changed from 3G to GPRS or Vice Versa. Anyway, the N70 is such a good phone, or shall I say Multimedia Device. Now the video on this phone has really impressed me, MP4 and my friends were also surprised, some own Nokia phones from 2003 and 2000, Two own a nokia 6230, one owns a 6230i and one owns a 7260 or 7250, dunno, anyways when I showed them a video clip I recorded, boy, were they jealous. I also showed them the Voice Command, they were shocked by what the command said, it does sound a bit weird, the way it talks. The 3D game graphics are so cool and smooth, very impressive, sound quality is ok too. The internet speed is very good and now I can use Yahoo on my N70 and download free pics in Images without me having to take photos. Talking about photos, the 2 MP camera is impressive and so is the front camera. The video calling is a bit poor but I hardly use it. Overall I rate this phone, 9.9/10!

better_fone

I agree with them, Nokia N70 is almost perfect for me, but can you make an improvements about there features? like about the zoom? i wanted to zoom as far as i want like 50-70x zoom both video and taking photos, and the front cam i hope you make it 12-20x zoom, and the MMC i hope you make it 5-10 GB and the Fone Memory 512-1 GB? When taking photos it eat alot of memory so it is posible that it will easily be overloaded or Full Memory, and the radio do i have to put on the head set to listen to the radio? and i hope this fone is capable of watching television, Im saying this because im a fun of Nokia and i love there product since ever. thanks for reading my suggestion and comment
