Nokia 7310 Supernova is based on the Series 40 5th Edition, Feature Pack 1 interface which is used in most of the other non-smart phones of the manufacturer. To personalize your Supernova, you can choose between various themes. Even more diversity is brought by the fact that the homescreen background is animated and the objects on it change. Our review unit had four themes and all of them were abstract and multicolor, adding to the image of the phone.

The main menu can be visualized in a few ways and its icons can be rearranged. Navigation is kind of slow (we expect better performance from a non-smart phone), and there is a noticeable lag when entering in it and choosing a given object by using a numeric key (shortcut).

You can add many details to every contact in the phonebook and the only comment we have is related to the search, which is done just by first name (or the first in order). There’s an option to search by first or family name but the results will include only matches from the first entered word.

Besides text and multimedia messages, 7310 also supports the ability to configure e-mail accounts (IMAP/POP3).

The phone is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera without autofocus and flash. The interface is neither beautiful, nor convenient to use, and on top of that, it is extremely slow (it takes about 15 seconds to record a picture). The image quality is also quite low which makes the overall use of the camera pointless. It’s a similar story with the videos, shot with maximum resolution of 176х144 pixels, which is not e enough even for the use of sites like YouTube.

The music player can sort your music by different criteria (artist, album, genre), and the interface has a pleasant appearance and is quite convenient to use. Our phone came with the standard and an additional graphic theme, but you can get more so you can change its design. The sound from the loudspeaker is at an average volume level and bearable quality, but sometimes a crackling noise can be heard. The earphones don’t bring anything impressive to the table either, so do not expect 7310 to replace your portable musical player. It is sad that the sound quality of the player is mediocre, because the interface is very good. We are happy with the FM radio (with RDS) software, and the video player disappointed us since it doesn’t play QVGA clips even in H.263 codec, which most contemporary phones support.

Games

The computer connection is done via the microUSB cable (not included in the package) or with Bluetooth 2.0. Since it supports A2DP, Supernova can transfer stereo music wirelessly.

Nokia has added four games in the phone: Snake III, Backgammon, Seasweeper, and Sudoku. They’re not the best ones but at least are not demo versions. JAVA MIDP 2.0 is supported and you can add new games or applications.

Horrible Christian Dior PAppeal. "It’s attractive, but not stylish." WTF?
