Performance:

The reception on the Nokia 7705 Twist was good and equal to that of the Nokia Intrigue 7205 and the LG enV3, as we had 2-3 bars of signal showing in most areas and didn’t drop any calls. However the call quality was lacking, as voices sounded distorted if the volume was turned up past medium. This was also true with the Speakerphone mode, as voice had a tendency to sound distorted at high volumes.

The included 860 mAh battery is rated to provide up to 4.5 hours of talk time or 11 days of standby time. During our testing we were, indeed, able to get 4 hours and 30 minutes of continuous talk time on a full charge.


Conclusion:

The Nokia 7705 Twist has a unique design that will have people looking at it, though we can’t help but wonder if a more traditional sliding design would be more durable over time. The shiny black plastic and chrome accents are fashionable, but they love to show off fingerprints. We like the idea behind the contact light ring and that the QWERTY keyboard was laid out well and easy to use. Unfortunately the call quality is lacking and so are the images taken by the 3MP camera. If you are more interested in form and fashion than performance, then the Nokia 7705 Twist is for you, but if you want a messaging device that performs well in all areas, then you’ll be better off with the Samsung Rogue, the LG enV3 or the enV Touch.
