Nokia 6760 slide Review

Performance:

The Nokia 6760 slide is a fast phone and opens most applications in a snap. You will probably find it somewhat annoying that you will have to open the slider in order to search in your phone contacts or dial a number, but you´ll eventually get used to it.

The in-call quality is not the best we have experienced and voices sound somehow surreal and remote. Still, you won´t have any problems catching onto what you´re being told and the overall loudness is proper.

We are really pleased with the battery performance. After three days of moderate use (mostly phone calls and text messages) the battery had more than half of its charge left. According to the manufacturer, the Nokia 6760 slide provides 5 hours of continuous talk time and about 500 hours in standby.

Conclusion:

As a whole, the Nokia 6760 slide is a quirky phone with eccentric, but compact design. The phone is supposed to offer excellent text messaging, chat and social networking functionality, but lacks dedicated applications. Some extra, third-party software will certainly make it more appealing to young people, but on the other hand, its multimedia qualities are far from perfect. We would recommend the Nokia 6760 slide to ordinary people, who tend to text a lot and could use a compact, Symbian smartphone. Business customers would rather go for the E75 that looks more stylish, is handier to use and supports Nokia Messaging. Young people will be better off opting for the LG GW520 or waiting for the release of the Samsung CorbyPRO B5310 - its prototype truly impressed us.

Had one for a month, sent it back. Poor speaker, poor reception, froze on me a couple of times. Poor connection with Nokia Bluetooth car kit. Battery life extremely poor when packet data link is open. Hated it.
