This flashy unlocked phone comes packed with multimedia, blogging, and search features, but the smudge-retentive exterior and lack of domestic 3G support may alienate snobs and squares alike.

The Nokia N76 looks great on paper, but of course is not perfect in real life. Apart from the HTC Star Trek (Qtek 8500/Dopod S300) which is quite outdated by now, this device does not have any direct competition in the thin smartphone department. Apart from a few design glitches such as the earphone...

TrustedReviews: Nokia N76 Mobile Phone Review

There are three music control buttons beneath the outer screen. Unfortunately, Nokia has been mean with the built-in memory - just 26MB. At least you can expand on this, via microSD. A 256MB card is supplied, but you can get 2GB cards. The card slot is located on the left back edge and has a solidly hinged cover.

Clamshell body with rich functional portfolio based on Symbian S60

from GSMArena

Nokia N76 is a controversial device. On one hand it presents itself as an elegant phone of modern slim design and high-tech functions underlined by the presence of a brilliant display and Symbian 9.2 with S60 3.1. On the other hand, however, a closer look reveals several significant drawbacks: cheap-looking plastic material, expressed susceptibility to fingerprints, which requires constant cleaning… You?'d better put gloves on your hands, if you try to show off with your new N76… In terms of hardware we should mention the flatness of the keypad resulting in uncomfortable usage of the latter as well as the impossibility to fully open the phone when earphones are connected to it...

On the other hand, however, a closer look reveals several significant drawbacks: cheap-looking plastic material, expressed susceptibility to fingerprints, which requires constant cleaning… You?'d better put gloves on your hands, if you try to show off with your new N76… In terms of hardware we should mention the flatness of the keypad resulting in uncomfortable usage of the latter as well as the impossibility to fully open the phone when earphones are connected to it.

The situation regarding the functions of the phone is similar. Picture quality does not fascinate at all; data transfers cannot be fully made use of because of the absence of Wi-Fi and HSDPA. A2DP Bluetooth profile necessary for connecting wireless earphones is missing too.

To sum up, Nokia N76 can be considered an interesting purchasing option mainly by people who refer to their phone as to a stylish fashionable accessory and do not care about its functional abilities too much. On the other hand, exactly such clientele will remain disappointed with the cheap looking plastic covers and the fingerprint smudges. The cons become even more visible when combined with the high price of the phone. As you can see, sales records are the last Nokia N76 is expected to achieve.

A flashy but slightly underpowered unlocked phone for the commitment-phobic technostylist

from Laptop Magazine

On the surface, the N76 seems tailor-made for image-conscious and tech-savvy consumers who wouldn't be caught dead with a run-of-the-mill RAZR. This flashy unlocked phone comes packed with multimedia, blogging, and search features, but the smudge-retentive exterior and lack of domestic 3G support may alienate snobs and squares alike.

The Nokia N76 looks great on paper, but of course is not perfect in real life.

Apart from a few design glitches such as the earphone jack that gets in the way with the flip and the poor battery life, the N76 seems to deliver what is has promised. It is sleek and powerful.

Its ergonomics aren't the best and there are a number of places in the software that we hope to see improvements in, including the lack of consistency with settings organization and the instability of cover display UI. The background hissing noise heard when playing music is something that I think really needs to be solved first.

Pro: Style, Applications, Overall Ease Con: Mirrored Finish, Restarts itself sometimes I have had this phone for about 2 weeks now. And I absolutely love it there is only one problem I have with the phone. I will start with the good things first. The phone is really heavy and sturdy I like that. The camera is good, the pics dont look so good on the phone. But when you put them on the computer they come out real clear and awesome. I love that you can d/l all these apps for it. I have dled the original zelda game and mortal kombat and things like that its awesome! The only problem I really have with the phone is it restarts itself every now and then. Like when I get a bunch of texts at the same time the phone restarts. Or sometimes in the middle of a game I am playing it will restart. Other than that I love the phone. Speaker is nice and loud on the phone when you're talking on it or listening to music. I just wish it had a Stereo speakers. You can use your music as ringtones which is always a plus. The chrome part on the phone does get kinda smudgy from your fingerprints but its nothing a quick wipe cant fix. And the mirrored finish outside is awesome. I can really see myself in it!!!! Less
