firstly theres no such thing as the perfect phone but the n76 is the closest you will ever come. i`ve had mine for 8 months now and i love it!!!!!!!! sadly i have to admit the chrome peels off after about 5 months, depending on how you treat it! im going to try the nokia care centre for a free recoat! besides the short battery life, rebooting itself, and the chrome peeling off. this would be the perfect phone!!!
i love this phone!i found a really2 great solution for those silver parts peeling off! make sure u bought this phone bnew or with nokia care warranty.my phone started peeling off after a couple of months.i brought it in the nokia care store and they will replace all the silver or chrome parts free of charge! all of it! as long as it is covered with the warranty.u can hav it changed free of charge everytime the silver part peels of!once,twice,thrice. again and again..remember..nokia care center.just use your warranty guys.hope this could be of help.:)
not happy jan. i got it, 3 weeks later sim stopped working, NOKIA gave me a red handset back and its just got all these design flaws.
1. you stick headset in, you can't open the phone the whole way. whats up with that??
2. there's is no way to open it without the chrome peeling off, just makes the phone look cheap!
3. when texting or pushing buttons, it seems that only thin fingered ladies can use it properly
NOKIA has made better phones. N76 is not worthy of the N Series brand.
It is such a stupid kind of mobile handset i have ever seen.
Its cost is above thirteen thousads yet the camera is of 2 megapixel and lookwise it is a good mobile.
hey guys its been 8months ive got this phone...its a real wonder...bt if u take care the chrome and paint wont peel off....till now my phone is still alrite and just sme pait which got peeled off,i mean little as there is no proper way to open the flap.so with nails paint peels off...bt still i love it
The silver cover in every N76 i know get out and there is no soluction to solve this problem :(
hey guys..uhm i was wondering.. does the silver painting really come off after sometime? cause i was thinking to buy this phone.....but after reading some comments i had some 2nd thoughts..can you guys tell me the best thing to do so the silver painting won't come off..and if you don't mind teling me the best 2nd choice of phone.......thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is really a great phone. I only found 3 problems in the 5 months that i have had it now. The first is that the chrome litterly peeled of within the first month. I now have a black and white phone, second, if there is to much stuff going on it reboots itself and third, the keys are not nice for typing. The screen size and its 16M display is exellent! Very nice phone.
too late - yes the chrome peels off within 2 months u will have a black and white instead of black and silver phone..
well, i think n76 is a great phone to use. although the chrome does peel off, i think its just a matter of how you take care of it. i bought my phone last yr and i only had to change the chrome 2 times.(take note that i had only little pieces of chrome peeled off you wont even notice it i just dont want my fone looking bad) but hey if you guys think it sucks, we're all entitled to our own opinions right?:)
i just got this phone nd the color is really peeling off and it turns down automatically but its a really nice phone good technical specifications
ur guys comments are funny...
i agree dat N76 chrome will take off automatically..
Do not get this phone!!! The chrome detail peels off after about 3 months and looks tatty as hell!
Its too big...bigger than the Mot V3.
Can't stress it enough...DONT GET THIS PHONE
i am willing to buy n76.the appereance really attracts me.my previous phone was 6270,the phone memory was too low.the phone was slow.the absence of symbian was the main problem.how about n76,does the chrome pill of????what about battery charging????cause some have mentioned these problems but some have rejected them help me please.i appriciate your comments.
the phone was really great but the main problem is the chrome which is very easy to be peeled off. .so we really need to put gmask on it but the nokia center in alabang wasnt allowed phones to be repair when theres gmask. . .the warranty will be void how sad. . .i already upgrade the phone with the latest firmware i was really shocked no hangs at all very great!!!!
elegant?? no way! the red unit of this cellphone chips of paint after a few weeks!
while the first batch of n76's chrome thats supposed to be "gold plated" chips off after a few days!
definitely a design flaw!
nokia should concentrate on their quality control..
instead of releasing a new model each month, they should at least carefully design each and every one of their units!
