If you think this phone is ugly....look at the rest of the Nokia N-Series bunch. Either they're too bricky, and yes, I consider bricky over 18 millimeters, or they're too ugly.
This is the first design in which I think Nokia has pulled off successfully not excluding the tech-friendly functionality. Fashionably, I have never liked a Nokia design until the second I laid eyes on the N76. It's absolutely exquisite.
Oh, and "ITS,"
Is there an option for the review to be read in english, because all I see are N76 photos and gibberish accompanying them. Lol.
personally, i find this n76 terribly ugly. it looks like sum cheap toy catered to toddlers.ive always been a nokia fan and thought the n series was a good effort when in comes to design...with the exception of n70 and n91. my grandma could design better when it comes to those two.
but why is evryone copying the razrs? its 3 years since the razr came out and shouldnt that be out of fashion already? nokia should try to have a trademark in their design in which by first impressions, all of us would know that type of design is esentially nokia's. if sony ericsson n motorola can create distinguished designs that are fashionable and yet practical, nokia can do it to without the need to produce big and bulky uninspiring phones.
http://www.mobile-review.com/articles/2007/nokia-ces-en.shtml... This link offers a review and some more pictures of the phone and yes it does grow on you... Also earlier here I had brought up the point bout 6290 and this phone having similar funtionaliies besides the batttery back-up which is better in 6290.. This article says the same and also says that it's just a tuff choice between the 2... One's a fashion statement and the other a utilitarian... But both are nice and as far as comparisons with Motorola go I wouldn't ever say any brands better than the other cuz every has something different to offer... It's just ur call and the phone which offers the best package to you... To me Moto Razr and all the Maxx's don't offer a simple FM Radio and the picture quality is bad... While nokia has very good 2MP phones be it 6270/6280/N70... I wanted a slim clamshell esentially a music phone and a decent camera.... Before this phone came out I was all set to buy W850i but now I'd rather wait for this cuz the bottom line is that this is closest to what I have in mind for a phone...
I can't even lie, this phone has grown on me, and Im very particular when it comes to cellular phones, their looks, and their functionality as ONE. Its an immediate RAZR-"MAXX" competitor.
At first glance, looking at just the advertising shots of the phone, I thought it was a cool elegant looking phone, but then I looked at the disturbingly large bulge at the top, the bulge on the bottom, and the weird-looking "flat with the surface of the phone" edged keypad, and immediately thought it was a cheap RAZR replicate; But then after watching live videos of it on "YouTube" and viewing the live shots from the post below, I like it alot. The top bulge "ISN'T" that big, and based on the specs and the live photographs of the N76 vs RAZR that someone posted below, this phone is INDEED "thinner" than ALL of the "clamshell" RAZR designs and I'm all about THIN!! As far as Nokia's functionality & personalization, Nokia has ALWAYS been more superior in this area than Motorola.
Now as far as responsiveness to intuitive menus, I don't know exactly if this phone has a NVIDIA goforce card like Motorola's MAXX so this portion remains at Motorola's territory. until further posts.
When I saw that the N76's camera was placed on the back I immediately knew the purpose for it and I love it. You can turn the phone sideways to take pictures with the flip closed using the outer screen as a view finder. I think thats kinda cool. As far as Video recording, I think Motorola's Maxx is superior because the Maxx uses "CIF" resolution recording as opposed to the N76's "QVGA" recording, and we all know how much richer video is with CIF than it is with QVGA.
Nokia's N76 is a GREAT competitor to Motorola's Maxx, because it seems to pack more of a punch in per cubic-millimeter than Motorola does. I think the Motorola Maxx V6 is for "PIMPZ", as Bengal-Boy deciphers it, and the Nokia N76 is for "PLAYAZ", my 3G interpretation. We declare the finer things in life. Lol...
But seriously, when YouTube's back up and running because right now, their down upgrading the site, check it out. Nokia N76.
This link has some really nice shots of the pphone... I was of the opinion that 6290's a better phone but N76 looks too too cool here... Didn't understand anything that was written but the comparison pics with the razr and 6290 help u figure out the specs of this one better and it looks good...
design is very good.but nokia not succes to create a walkman mobile withe good handsfree for example 3250 handsfree is good for nokia n76
I meant the ext music keys on the Nokia to the touch sensitive music keys on the Razr Maxx V6... plus 3g on Nokia to he 3.6mbps HSDPA 3G on the Razr Maxx... list just goes on and on.
Stop comparing to the old v3's... compare to it's competitor the Razr MAxx v6.
...to the "y7ib" person who posted this:
"y is it like the razr? because it has a 16m color display when the razr has 256k? or cause it has a 2mp camera (with flash) when the v3 has a vga camera? is it the symbian os where the v3 has a wap browser? bluetooth 2.0 vs 1.2? a microsd card slot vs. none? not to mention EDGE and 3G!"
Why are you Nokia fans so afraid to compare this phone with the Razr Maxx v6 which is it's direct competitor?... instead you keep comparing with the v3's from 3 years ago... are you guy's living in denial or just trying to really make this phone look better than it really is?
Stop acting like scaredy cats and compare it with it's direct competitor... saying v3 has WAP... why dont u compare with the V6 that uses the Opera browser instead... or the ext music keys on the Nokia to the touch sensitive music keys on the Nokia?...or the 2MP cam on the Nokia to the 2MP cam on the V6?
Nokia fans... step up to the game and stop living in denial.
Can the real Nokia fans please stand up!... stop letting these self denial people make ya'll look bad.
Nice live photos
As some said, it's petty pafetic from nokia to copy Motorola's razor's design :( But afterall,i thin think this phone is nice in all way's
as a nokia owner i'm disgraced by this pathetic razr hackjob. you're better than this, nokia.
tacky job at a RAZR RIPOFF nokia as reflected in the voting results.
y is it like the razr? because it has a 16m color display when the razr has 256k? or cause it has a 2mp camera (with flash) when the v3 has a vga camera? is it the symbian os where the v3 has a wap browser? bluetooth 2.0 vs 1.2? a microsd card slot vs. none? not to mention EDGE and 3G!
oh its because of that ridge at the bottom? maybe nokia wanted to be able to use the same size ports on this slim model that they use on the rest of their phones. its a good design from motorola and everyone who uses it is accused of cloning the razr. that doesnt matter as long as the phone they make is more up to date. motorola has failed at updating the razr so other brands have to do it for them.
"It stands out from all of the razrs, samsung, etc., and on top of that it is nokia with a 2 MP camera which makes a big difference. You can never go wrong with a nokia, the battery and technology is always up to date."
lol, sure it stands out from the RAZR. that's why everybody's calling it the "nokia RAZR," lmfao!
and yeah, nokia's really up to date with the battery technology. you can talk on this for a whole hour before it dies.
