Nokia 7705 Twist (Verizon)

 

The Nokia 7705 Twist brings the swivel back and tosses in a comfortable QWERTY keyboard and plenty of style.

Slick swivel design. Roomy QWERTY keyboard. Good voice quality.

Subpar reception. Poor music player performance. Disappointing camera. Non-standard headphone jack.

Camera and Conclusions The 3-megapixel camera was a disaster. The slow shutter speed, poor resolution, and lack of detail contributed to a series of useless photos that were either too dark (flash off, or flash on in a dark room) or completely blown...

Nokia 7705 Twist (Verizon Wireless) review

 

We can safely say that we've never seen a phone like the Nokia 7705 Twist. Sure, we've reviewed square handsets before , and swivel models were in style a few years back; however, we've never had the two design aesthetics combined onto one device....

The Nokia Twist 7705 has a decent range of features, a comfortable keyboard, and admirable call quality.

The Nokia Twist 7705 has a polarizing design with a small display and a 2.5-millimeter headset jack. Its photo quality is poor, its streaming video frame size is small, and its call volume could be louder.

The Nokia Twist 7705's bizarre design won't be for everyone, but it pulls through with decent features and good call quality. On the other hand, it's not a practical Internet or multimedia device.

Nokia 7705 Twist Review

 

Occasionally a manufacturer releases a mobile handset, especially dedicated to messaging. The target market is always the adolescent one, and therefore the form is mostly unique, striving to make a statement. The Nokia 7705 Twist is just such a phone...

Review: Nokia 7705 Twist

 

Nokia puts a new twist on the messaging phone with the 7705 Twist for Verizon Wireless. What it lacks in performance, it makes up for in personality.

Do not buy this phone. Piece of junk.

 

Sorry I purchased this phone. Still have over a year on the contract and had to go back to my old phone which turns off for no reason. Very disappointed.

Cute is the only pro I found.

Small keyboard. Hard to text. Fell apart at twist mechanism. Went back to verizon and they were no help. There should be a recall on this phone.

Basic messaging phone with a twist ;D

 

The Nokia twist functions well for everyday use. It definitely shouldn't be used as more than just a messaging phone. I've dropped mine a few times, but it's never broken. I use it frequently. It hasn't even gotten any cracks. Everything about it is...

The design is amazing as is the notification light. I'm constantly getting compliments, even so long after it was released. The shortcut buttons up top are efficient, not too handy though. It's small enough to be incredibly portable. Habitat mode shows me

It does have your usual messaging phone glitches. Nothing is unbearable. I returned the phone twice for not having a functioning flash on the camera, but even with it picture quality doesn't improve. Other than that, there's no reason I wouldn't recommend

This is the worst phone I have ever owned in the last 10yrs. I have been through 2 of them in the last 6mths. The first one had major software issues and the second the port broke while in my purse with the protective cover on. The phone is extremely...

Nokia 7705 Twist

 

The phone is great but using it's featured "Habitat mode" makes the phone a little slower. Texting is easy and even the mirror behind the screen comes in handy! Great phone just needs minor improvements to make it perfect.
