Nokia E75 review

T he E71 is considered Nokia's most recent hit. With this handset, Nokia was able to hold the consumer's attention in this strongly competitive market. The times of the traditional cell phone manufacturer and the success that undoubtedly came with it, are definitely a thing of the past. Electronic giants such as Samsung and HTC, as well as LG, demand their market share. In addition, the ongoing worldwide credit crunch and the unpredictable behavior of today's consumer are causing sorrowful times for both the marketing and the R&D department. The Nokia E75 smartphone is expected to prolong the success of its predecessor, at which the Nokia messaging feature is very likely to help. One difference between this service and a comparable one such as that of BlackBerry, is that the latter settles for any company network, whereas the Nokia user is dependent on Nokia's network.

Nokia E75 review

The Nokia E75 is a 3G mobile phone, providing onboard WLAN and HSDPA, topped off with an array of multimedia features such as Email, VoIP, camera, A-GPS and Internet. The specifications really do look promising on paper.

First impression of the Nokia E75 handset

"Designed for the way we manage our business'; this is Nokia's message on the box of the Nokia E75. The visual messages on the box imply the Nokia E75 is meant for all-round communication. You can gain access to all your email accounts in three steps; select 'set email' and start the program. Select; manage email account and enter your password, whereupon you, as a Nokia E75 owner, are ready to communicate with the outside world. The Nokia E75 has a high quality appearance. The handset features attractive curves and fairly compact dimensions. The E75 feels solid partly thanks to the materials used. When we slide the device sideways to open it, a QWERTY keyboard appears. In horizontal position, the Nokia E75 lies safely and stable in your hand, providing easy operation. The equipment included with the Nokia E75 comprises of a set of earplugs (HS-43), USB cable, battery charger, BL-4U Lithium-Ion battery, microSD memory card and an instruction manual. A voice recognition navigation system with maps for a period of 3 months comes with the E75 as a nice extra, although this may vary by region. For the Nokia E75 review, we received a silver/black version, however; the handset is available in several other colors (also depending on the region).

Nokia E75 smartphone design

The Nokia E75 cell phone has a stylish design. Whereas before, the Nokia phone design used to be somewhat conservative, or in other words: ordinary and certainly not trendy, the Nokia E75 is an eye-catcher. It has a striking appearance and will look good on any desk. The weight of the device is considerable yet not too heavy. It provides essential stability. Compared to its predecessor, the E71, the Nokia E75 is somewhat larger in size. On the other hand, the E71 is wider than the Nokia E75. Altogether, it doesn’t make much of a difference as far as the total dimension is concerned, although personally I do prefer the Nokia E75. The back features a truly attractive finish, and seems to radiate pure luxury. The engraved pattern gives the phone a classic yet modern appearance. The form factor; a slider phone with a keyboard that slides open sideways, is new for Nokia. The Nokia E75's form factor may in fact signal a new generation of Nokia slider phones.
