Introduction and Design

Despite their pretty voluminous product catalogue, Nokia offers just a few handsets equipped with side-sliding keyboards and the Nokia 6760 slide is one of them. Moreover, it´s probably the smallest device with such a form factor.

The handset display is really fitting for such a compact device and measures 2.4 inches, sports QVGA resolution and supports 16mln colors. Our only gripe relates to the fact that it loves fingerprints and they tend to prevent you from being able to discern what´s on screen easily. Still, if clean, the screen remains usable even in direct sunlight, so it´s definitely a capable one.

As a whole, all buttons of the Nokia 6760 slide are handy. In spite of their size, they are easy to feel with your fingers and feature well-pronounced travel. The keyboard is comfy, unlike the one the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is equipped with. All buttons are raised and trouble-free to press, so it won´t take long until you get used to them and start typing away really fast. We do like the rubberized, slanting section of the front side, because it helps you to open the phone effortlessly.

The sliding mechanism is one of the major issues that plague the Nokia 6760 slide, because it does feel cheap and wobbly. Moreover, the all-round workmanship is average. All materials the phone is made of are pleasing to touch, but the handset itself doesn’t come in solid and reliable, something not typical the manufacturer.

The top side of the Nokia 6760 slide hosts 2.5mm jack and charger port, while the microUSB connector is on the left. The phone comes boxed with the respective accessories – headset, charger, USB cable, user guide and 2GB microSD card that should be inserted into the slot under the back panel.

As a whole, Nokia 6760 slide comes with quite eccentric, asymmetrical design. Aside from black, the phone is also available in red and white and these colors make it look even more extravagant. Whether or not you find the device appealing depends on your aesthetic preference.
