Nokia 7070 Prism Review

It is very important for the low-end phones to sound good during a call, as they do not offer many other functions to compensate. We’re rather disappointed by the 7070 in this aspect, since we got a lot of complains that our voices sounded sharp and unclear. It was the same form our side so we suggest that you should turn the volume down, because you’ll find it painfully annoying. The loudspeaker is comparatively usable, although we couldn’t understand all of what was said through it.

For such a simple phone we were left with the impression that the battery is quite poor – 5 hours of talk time or 480 hours of stand-by. Just for the comparison, with Sony Ericsson Z320 you can talk up to 7 hours.


Good appearance is a big plus for a low-range phone. In relation to this – Nokia 7070 Prism performs really good, having in mind that its design is somewhat different from the rest of the cheap phones.

Unfortunately, this is at the expense of unhandy keys, which on their side ruin all chances for comfortable writing of SMS and e-mails. Factor in poor sound quality during a call, and in the end  you get a phone that’s only good enough for the hardcore fans of the Prism. In case you are not one of them, Sony Ericsson Z320 is a good alternative at a similar price, and it even has a camera.

  • Many convenient options for writing messages


  • Unhandy keys
