Nokia 7610 digital camera
3.2 megapixel digital photo & video camera
The 3.2 megapixel digital picture and video camera of the Nokia 7610 seems somewhat outdated at this time and age. Although we have to say that this handset was not launched in the market as 'the new cameraphone' of the Finnish company. Still, the camera is not as bad as we thought at first. You can make nice pictures using the auto focus. Thanks to the Supernova's AF assist lamp, you can even make a good picture in badly lit circumstances. Additionally, you can adjust the white balance of the camera, but since shutter speed and ISO values cannot be adjusted, there is no chance of shooting high quality pictures.
Nokia 7610 phone memory
Playing music and videos on the media player
Naturally, the Supernova 7610 also features a media player. Every song or video can be installed using the internal memory of 64MB. However, it has to be said the memory is rather limited, but thankfully it can be expanded by microSD, even to 2GB. The media player supports several audio and video formats, of which MP3, AAC, MPEG4 and 3GPP are the most common ones. Since the Supernova features a 2 inch QVGA monitor, you can watch movies with a maximum resolution of 320x240 pixels. In addition to the installed songs and videos, the device also allows listening to the FM stereo radio with RDS support. This enables you to enjoy the latest hits on your favorite radio station while travelling by train. The RDS ensures automatic contact between the phone and the best frequencies of the selected station. The included stereo headset serves as antenna in this case.

Nokia 7610 Supernova data transfer
Since neither standard software nor a data cable is included, the only way to transfer files from the Nokia 7610 Supernova is using Bluetooth or the microSD card. Bluetooth simply lets you send pictures, videos and music files to another mobile phone or computer, as well as receive them yourself. This allows you to put a ringtone on your mobile phone or download a picture to your computer in order to send it through email. The advantage of sending files via the microSD card is that is allows for quicker data transfer. For example, it lets you place more files sequentially on the card or computer.

Nokia 7610 Supernova battery life
Just as we are used to from Nokia, the battery performance is more than excellent. You can call, send text messages and use various applications, such as the digital camera and media player, for several days without having to worry about running out of energy. While testing, I found out that the 7610 Supernova functions well for at least two and a half days. Additionally, you can take energy-saving precautions such as: lowering background lighting, deactivating Bluetooth after using it, and activating sleep-mode when the phone is not in use.
