Nokia 7610 review

N okia is known to divide its GSM devices into various categories. These categories can be recognized by the first figure of the type number. The 1*** series for example, is the simplest model. The series 6*** and 9*** aim at the corporate user. The 8*** series phones have a more stylish appearance, whereas the 7*** series is the trendy line of the Finnish company. Most mobile phone users are aware of this. The consumer often already knows in advance which series appeals most to him or her, something that strengthens Nokia during the introduction of a new type of mobile phone. Both loyal and new consumers continuously watch and purchase the introduced handset of their preference.

First impression of the Nokia 7610 handset

'A simple and small, yet handy device', is the first thought that came to my mind upon opening the box. The plastic housing appears to be no different from most Nokia devices; simple yet tough. I have a feeling of old times reviving again, especially thanks to the additional Xpress covers found inside the box. Just like in the good old days: changing 'covers' to give the phone’s regular appearance a personal touch. The Nokia 7610 slider phone features a monitor that has a mirror effect and is likely to serve a dual purpose as an accessory in a ladies handbag. Thankfully, the mirror effect disappears when the background light of the monitor is activated. The mobile phone is easy to open and in turn also easy to slide closed again. It is clear that the device is rugged and solid.

Nokia Supernova cell phone menu

One click brings you inside the main menu. All the different submenus are displayed and visible at a glance. You can scroll through the menu using the navigation button or by pressing the submenu's number. Gradually becoming more popular and also found on the Nokia 7610 handset is the standby menu. From the standby mode, you can instantly open your most favorite application. The design of the menu structure is also well thought-out. You can install various themes to give a more personal touch to your mobile phone. The '3D effect' while scrolling through the submenus is a visual present. You will get to see a brief animation of the selected item, supported by a brief description.
