I was given the Nokia N76 as a free upgrade almost a year ago, and first impressions were good. Despite its relatively large size, it was light and held a lot of the latest software advances, a decent enough camera and large enough memory for an MP3 collection.
It also looked attractive with a large screen on the front as well as easy to use media buttons. Once flipped open, the Nokia held a huge screen as well as large metallic text keys.
The good bits…
· Large memory capability
· Long battery life, Nokia headphones, ease of texting
· The front screen can be used as a mirror
The average bits…
· Once flipped open is incredibly large and can prove a handful when trying to take photos.
· 2 megapixal camera
· 256mb memory card as standard
The not so good bits…
· Has no non- demo games installed on it other than a very dated ‘Snakes’
· Software for the MP3 player is dated and difficult to use. The player buttons on the front screen, can be easily be pressed accidentally
· The Vodafone model, has always struggled with bugs in the software, in my case this means the phone will turn off, if it is instructed to do too many tasks at one.
· The paintwork on the casing starts to come off within months of purchase.
· The memory card often falls out, and after a year just stopped working.
Overall, the Nokia N76 does everything a bog standard phone will do. However, with the software glitches and large size of it, there are many phones out there which will do a far better job, for the price of which the phone is currently on sale for.
