Nokia 6760 slide ReviewNokia 6760 slide 7
The Nokia 6760 slide is a cell phone based on Symbian S60 3rd Edition – operating system that lags behind the pack in terms of contemporary standards, but still, is really user-friendly and makes you feel as if you had a feature phone. We have already had the chance to review it on several occasions, so we are not going into details here. One of the good things about the interface of the Nokia 6760 slide is the presence of a Talking stand-by screen. It offers shortcuts to several functions - calls, clock, voice control and message reader and the phone will read aloud any option you select. It would have been great if the built-in loudspeaker was of less awful quality and allowed people to understand more than half of the words.

The phone comes with automated email setup for popular service providers and the comfy keyboard makes typing messages a child´s play. Unfortunately, Nokia hasn’t allowed for Nokia Messaging support, so you will have to rely on the integrated email client. It´s good enough and fits the bill, although we would have liked if the application could be installed - if anything, it makes switching between email accounts and reading HTML-formatted letters quite easy.
High-speed internet connectivity is always a good thing, especially if you need to be able to surf the Web, access various social networks and download software from Ovi Store and do it fast. The Nokia 6760 slide connects over 3G and the maximum download speed is 3.6Mbps. The built-in Symbian browser is really comfy, snappy and allows watching of Flash Videos on YouTube. Despite the manufacturer´s claims the Nokia 6760 slide offers excellent social networking options and chat clients, all we could find on the phone was shortcuts to the mobile versions of Facebook, MySpace and Friendster, with absolutely no dedicated applications preinstalled.
The phone sports a built-in GPS and Ovi Maps version 3. Actually the latter is a pretty capable navigational application that is easy to get used to. You can find out more about it in our review of the Nokia 6710 Navigator.
You shouldn’t expect much in terms of multimedia functionality. The Nokia 6760 slide is equipped with 3.2-megapixel camera without autofocus and flash. The overall image quality is low – colors are thin and unrealistic and pictures lack enough details. The maximum video capture resolution is QVGA, so be prepared for videos with rather bad quality that are only good for MMS messages.
The audio quality through the boxed headset is passable, so you might even find yourself listening to music for prolonged periods of time. As for the loudspeaker, well, we already told you it´s downright appalling. The Nokia 6760 slide plays MP4 videos provided their maximum resolution doesn’t exceed QVGA.

Had one for a month, sent it back. Poor speaker, poor reception, froze on me a couple of times. Poor connection with Nokia Bluetooth car kit. Battery life extremely poor when packet data link is open. Hated it.
