Nokia 7500 Prism Review

Performance:

The telephone works relatively quickly, but is slower than the 8600 LUNA, for example. The time from pressing a main menu button to opening of the sub-menus is half a second.

The melodies of incoming calls are relatively loud, and can be heard even in a noisy environment. Nevertheless, if you are in a very noisy place, it is preferable to use the vibration option.

We would set the strength of the signal reception during conversation to 6.5 of 10, which is relatively good, as a whole, and much better in comparison to that of 8600 Luna, for example. During conversation the sound that you hear is above the average, as voices sound unrealistically without low and high tones, but, on the other side, the situation is a bit better – they hear you louder and realistically, but without high tones.

By official data of the manufacturer, the phone endures 2.8 hours in a taking regime, which is a short time in comparison to the average or up to 280 hours in a standby regime.

Conclusion:

We were left with the impression that this phone is for the lovers of the attractive design or, rather, shape. The appearance of the device is what attracts, but, nevertheless, Nokia did not miss the main things for a modern device – camera, music and video player. If you are looking for a phone for taking photos and, as a whole, for a multimedia device, you can quietly pass by it because it is not designated to satisfy such needs. The fact that the device is a 3-band one (having 2 frequency options) limits its use worldwide.

If you want something different, which attracts glances, and thus to show that you are different, this is the phone for you.

Pros

  • Memorable and original design
  • Good display

Cons

  • Slow when taking photos
  • Hard to press joystick and volume keys
  • Tri-band

I received this phone recently on a free Orange upgrade after reading the review for the 7900. Its a nice looking phone with a clear display and menus that any Nokia user will be familiar with. However the keys are hard to press as is the joystick hard to operate. The back cover is flimsy plasic and clips rather than slideson. I thinks you will need to be very careful not to break it. Although the phone looks nice to me it felt "cheap". There is no multicolour glowing keyboard as in the 7900, no "living wallpaper" and no aluminium back plate- its plasic. The omission of 3G is also a black mark agaist it. I sent it back an stuck with my 6233 I may get the 7900 when it comes out over here in the uk. Another thing the phone seemed to get warm to the touch during use.
