Nokia N76 Review

Nokia N76

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team



Nokia N76 uses a ARM11 processor with a working frequency of 369MHz, which is 11% more, compared to ARM11 at 332MHz, used in N95 and N93i. Working with the menu is instantaneous and this is the quickest Symbian S60 phone that we have used! It is so quick that we can easily compare it to a non-smart phone, which are quicker by definition.

We are disappointed in the phone’s coverage, which, surprisingly for an upmarket Nokia, is below the average. In our underground test we have evaluated it at 4 out of 10. The sound quality, however, is typical: realistic voices in both directions and strong outgoing sound. Our only criticism is the average incoming sound, due to which you can have difficulties in a noisy environment.

The loudspeaker is optimized to be used during video conversation: you have to keep it at a small distance (up to half a meter) so that you can be hear distinctly and loudly. The incoming sound strength is below the average and you’ll not be able to use it if it is noisy around you.


Apart from its sexy look and its slim silhouette, Nokia N76 offers quite a lot of possibilities as a Symbian S60 smartphone. If you’re a music fan, you can listen to your favorite tracks through the player’s latest version, the standard headphones with a 3.5 mm jack and a nice thing is that the navigation can be done even with the shell closed. The camera is not on a par with the upmarket cameraphones like N95 but can take photos for memory; some of the functions of the top-of-the-line model (WiFI, HSDPA) are not available here, but that’s the price of being cool-looking. Overall, this is a slim device with unusually quick reactions for Symbian S60 smartphone


  • Slim profile with extravagant look
  • Music player can be fully controlled with the shell closed
  • 3.5mm stereo jack for easy connection with headphones


  • Larger than some people would like to
  • Weak signal reception
