Nokia 7280 review

Nokia 7280

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team




The battery lasts about 48 hours with minimal use. I used the phone mostly for talking and had to charge it every other day. Charging takes about 3 hours.
The Nokia 7280 is a TriBand (GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900) phone that has marginal reception. This phone was used in Los Angeles, CA via T-Mobile and doped some calls. Answering and ending calls is easy just by sliding the phone. When holding the phone up to your ear, one must position the earpiece just right in order to get the best sound clarity. If the earpiece is not positioned correctly callers sound muffled. The Bluetooth headset and speaker work well as alternatives. The speaker gets loud and does not sound distorted. The microphone is located on the bottom of the phone and picks up ones voice well. I never received a complaint about the clarity of my voice.


This phone is for the trend setter and one that is looking for attention. It takes some getting use to and the dialing option will bother most people. As an everyday phone, you will want to look into different options.
