Nokia 7070 Prism Review

Introduction and Design

Last year Nokia released two mid-range fashion candybars – the 7500 Prism and 7900 Prism. They demonstrated  an eccentric prismatic motive and some interesting customization options by introducing changeable lines and different RGB LED lights. The clamshell 7070 Prism is a lot more simplified compared to the previous Prism models – it doesn’t even have a camera- but it offers the same exotic and attractive design at a lower price.

The package includes:

  • Nokia 7070 Prism
  • Charger
  • User Manual


The compact clamshell form and its low weight (barely 78 grams) make it feel exceptionally comfortable in one’s pocket.

The phone doesn’t have an additional display, just a service light, which blinks when it’s ringing or there’s a missed event. The light as well as the line circling most of the device can be either blue, or pink. Unfortunately, these features cannot be customized like with the 7500, and you’ll have to make your choice at the store. You won’t find any keys on the sides of the phone – there is only a 2.5mm headphones jack, connectors for a data cable and the charger.

The 1.8-inch display has a typical low budget resolution of 128x160 and supports 65k colors. The overall image is heavily pixelized and colorless, and as an additional drawback you’ll find it very difficult to use it in direct sunlight.

All the keys (functional, send and end keys, 5-way D-pad, keyboard) are with prismatic shape, which makes them pretty hard to press. Bearing in mind their limited motion and pale backlight in the end you really get a terrible keyboard.

We also want to note 7070 Prism’s poor build quality. The materials are nice and they don’t give a feeling of something cheap (what it is), but when it’s closed you can clearly feel the play between the two parts.
