Nokia N70 Cellphones Review




If the Nokia N70 phone had a twin, it has to be the 6680. Not only do both smart phones share an almost similar design, they also offer much of the same specifications, from 3G connectivity and RS-MMC expansion slot to the Symbian Series 60 platform. Fortunately, as with any upgrade models, the triband N70 does come with several enhancements including a 2-megapixel camera and an improved handset design. One question beckons. Can the N70 emulate the success of its predecessor?

Nokia has done a good job in improving the overall aesthetics of the phone, giving a matt finish that's comfortable to hold and a classy metallic bezel around the display and keyboard. The candy-bar phone comes in two colors--Ivory Pearl/Auberg and Silver/Black--which should appeal to both genders...We found it easy to edit images and videos on the N70. Using the built-in tools, users can cut, edit, insert and string up videos together directly on the phone.

Simple transition effects (fade to black/white) can be added, too. For pictures, the onboard image editor comes with preset frames, cartoons which you can insert onto the photo, after which you can scale, rotate and resize the image to the desired preferences...Where phone performance is concerned, the N70 didn't disappoint with good reception and calls throughout our testing. The built-in loudspeaker mode was sufficiently loud, too, although not for noisy environments.
