Nokia 7280

 

Gadgets, phones or anything techy can no longer just do the job they set out to do anymore. They have to be stylish fashion items too. Nokia's taken this on board earlier than most. The mobile phone giant is rolling out a range of phones that have...

Design, Wow factor, surprisingly ease of use.

Not for the heavy number or text puncher

This is Nokia trying to create a style-conscious, design-focused mobile phone and in our minds, succeeding. For some, it will be a little over the top and we wouldn't recommend it to anyone who has either lots of texts to send or numbers to punch in.

Nokia 7280

 

For many years Nokia was a trendsetter in a mobile phone world. And having expanded its model line a few years ago it didn't manage to hold the appearance of its many models even series of devices. Their functional and design similarity made the...

A project represented with the three models Nokia 7260, Nokia 7270, Nokia 7280 is an experimental one (the 7000 series is always experimental in some kind). The designers used the 20th of the last century with their spangle of clubs, fanciful closes...

The 7280 wins points for its unique and attractive design, but everyday users will become quickly frustrated by its tedious messaging and number input process.

Small, slim and light, design has a "wow" factor, maintains the trademark Nokia ease of use, has most standard mobile features, display doubles as a mirror

Messaging and number input slow and tedious, lack of video recording, SIM card storage requires tool, no games or Java support

Nokia 7280 (Unlocked) review: Nokia 7280 (Unlocked)

 

Intro If you think that all Nokia cell phones boast the same candy bar-style design, you haven't been paying much attention. In reality, the Finnish company has always had a wacky side that often manifests itself in such unusual style elements as...

Strong assortment of features, including Bluetooth and speakerphone; VGA camera and FM radio; solid call quality; world phone.

Alternative design won't appeal to everyone; controls require a learning curve; small display; nonreplaceable battery; no Java support; video playback only.

While its design is purely a matter of taste, the 7280 is a feature-packed cell phone that performed well in our tests.

Nokia 7280

 

Oh, heck, just look at it. Nokia gets the highest of marks just for pure innovation.

An amazing-looking phone. Startlingly complete feature set considering its size, including Bluetooth, speakerphone, Class 10 EDGE, and an FM radio.

Difficult to dial (especially if you're not at your sharpest). Needs speaker-independent voice dialing. Possibly short battery life.

Nokia 7280 review: A toy for the rich

 

Nokia 7280 is the king among all stylish phones. The little oblong black brick provokes a mixture between astonishment and curiosity never mind the fact that handling its functions is confusing. Its equipment does not fall behind though either: feel...

Nokia 7280

 

It's around four inches, it vibrates, and it's shaped like a lipstick. It must be designed for women.

Very sexy and sleek design ; Very handy

Takes longer to send SMS or type numbers ; Weak battery life

It is obvious what the Nokia 7280's edge is. The style is what separates this phone from other handsets. It banks on something that has never been done before and it may just succeed in doing that. But with a retail price of almost AU$1,300, we doubt...

Nokia 7280 Review

 

The new Nokia 7280 unlocked Bluetooth camera GSM phone is an eye catcher. With a compact design unseen in most Nokia handsets, the Nokia 7280 is a certified best seller.

The Nokia 7280 is a solid phone with a creative, out-of-the-box design which clearly is its most glaring attraction. Although users should expect some time to get used to the design, the phone is user friendly. The screen is a bit small but this is to...

Nokia 7280 Review

 

Truly nice style in a very lightweight package

Phone needs to be sent back to Nokia for battery change, No keypad means a real loss in efficiency

Excellent for fashionable people who don't care so much about functionality but place style above everything. Walking out of a Limo with that phone in hands is sure to turn heads but just imagine the same jewel with a better software.

Nokia 7280

 

Nokia has traditionally been to mobile phones what Microsoft is to operating systems. In other words, the world's dominant force in mobile handset sales. Last year saw that domination threatened by new manufacturers on the scene such as Samsung, and...

Whilst the 7280 was designed with a specific brief in mind it's hard to believe that usability and practicality were not also on the checklist. The look of the 7280 is no doubt an acquired taste, and the screen, whilst crisp is really too small to be...
