Nokia 7070 Prism Review

Even though the phone’s functionality is pretty standard, the 7070 managed to surprise us. The built-in themes match perfectly the overall appearance. Although nothing on this display can be really beautiful, they still provide a pleasure experience to the eye.

Luckily, the phonebook is not prismatic, since this could have been somewhat confusing. It has a capacity of 1000 contacts, for which you can add a lot of details (e-mail, position, address, birth day, picture, etc.)  Of course, as a low-end phone, we cannot expect to be able to search by last name.

The organizer functions are up to the mark and include alarms, calendar, to-do’s, notes, calculator, timer, and stopwatch. Don’t mention it to your relatives if you want to have an excuse when you forget their next birthday, otherwise they will accuse you of not being able to use your organizer. There’s also a voice recorder with a limit of one minute and comparatively low quality.

Although we don’t think anyone would actually enjoy messaging on the 7070’s subpar keyboard, we do have to note that the message menu offers some decent options. You can send basic, multimedia, fast (short, but are displayed directly on the screen) and audio messages. We were  pleasantly surprised by the presence of automatic settings for the popular e-mails, which saves you from some considerable pain.

The model is dual-band with American and European versions. We were totally stunned by the HTML browser, which single-handedly opened our web site plus the flash animations, features a pan view and develops a download speed of 7.2 Mbit/s! We’re, just kidding, of course. The phone offers a basic WAP browser, which is rather clumsy; the lack of EGDE  speed also slows it down to some extent. However, you can still open sites like Google, which is just fine for this type of device.

The phone doesn’t feature a music player, but supports MP3 files. Uploading such files to the phone will be quite difficult, considering the lack of Bluetooth, infrared port or a data cable in the package. The camera is also missing.
