Nokia 7205 Intrigue Review
The Reception of the Intrigue was quite good and about equal to the LG VX8360. Voices through the earpiece speaker were loud and clear, unlike the muffled sound of the 6205, and lacked any static or distortion, but weren’t as natural sounding as the VX8360 or Chocolate 3. People that we called, who were using a landline, said our voice sounded clear and natural on their end. We liked that the Speakerphone could be used with the flip open or closed, but there was noticeable distortion if the volume was turned up past medium. We also noticed that there is only one universal volume adjustment for both the earpiece and speakerphone, meaning that if you lower the volume of the speakerphone, then change back to the earpiece, you have to raise the volume level. Most other phones have separate volume settings for each.
The included 860mAh battery is rated to provide up to 4 hours of talk time or 11 days of standby time. During our testing, we were able to get 4 hours and 30 minutes of continuous talk time on a full charge.
The Nokia Intrigue is one of the best looking and feature-rich flip phones available for Verizon, other than the Chocolate 3, which is geared more to music users. The two keypad color options are nice, and the Habitat Mode is very useful. We would highly recommend the Intrigue for anyone who is searching for a stylish modern looking phone with good call quality, reception, camera, and user interface.

I too, love this phone! I got it yesterday and can't stop playing with it. The battery does last less than my Samsung, but I still love the design, it is so sleek and the habitat mode is so fun. I find no problem with the volume, as some people complained, the camera takes great pictures. I give it 5 *'s!
