Review: Nokia N75
Read our close-up look at Nokia's N75, a 3G phone for AT&T. Does it stand out in the high-end feature phone crowd? Plus Video Tour.
The Nokia N75 is a 3G clamshell first announced by Nokia last September. Made available recently on AT&T's network in the U.S., it has all the features you'd expect from a high-end consumer phone. With the camera, music player, high-speed wireless data capabilities, and customizable S60 operating system, the N75 is an enticing pick. With so many capabilities, it could be hard to settle on the N75's defining feature. And that's just the problem, there isn't one. So what makes the N75 special enough for you?
IS IT REALLY THAT BAD?
... Also, what kinds of music files does it play? I see conflicting information on different web sites. Most of my music is from itunes.
If you actually bought your music from the iTunes Music St...
Burn them to a CD then rip them back into mp3 format, you can do all that in iTunes
Great Job on the Review.... NOT
Physically, you know what you're getting. The phone is HUGE. Thanks for pointing out the obvious. This phone was never meant to make the current generation of Razr look-a-likes look like F_A_T BOYS.
The facts about this phone are these; 1. Screen is enormous and beautiful. 2. Signal and Sound Quality are exceptional. 3. From a function stand point, this phone knocks the socks off any at&t 3G entry to date.
But what else can I say, you guys were right, after all. How bout a video to accompany this review?
The Symbian interface was mentioned in the review as the Nokia's maj...
Well i work for cingular opps i mean att. And when the phone rep came in i was kinda excited but after compare it to the lg, and the sync it really not that excellent in my op ion..
The format remind me of the E-62 .......
How about video streaming? This is the only symbian phone that can do decent streaming and it's not even discussed. What about using it as a tethered modem?
Until the N95 supports WCDMA 1900, this is the best Cingular phone.
This is the first and currently only 3G Nokia Symbian phone in the US. That alone makes it compelling. Why no mention of that in the review.
What are you talking about? The wrap-up says exactly that...
The main thing negative that I noticed when I played with one in a Cingular shop was the very bulky form-factor. This was very disappo...
I own one and "mostly" agree with this review
THe camera is a tad tricky to get used to, but once you get the hang of it, it rocks. Sound quality is just as reviewed, but NOkia has always had and issue with very noticable handoffs and network chanes causeing a 1/4 second audio cutout or clicks.
Overall this is still the best phone i have ever used, My 8525 is collecting dust on my computer desk.
So from what I can tell there is little advantage to this phone over the Nokia 5300 other than UMTS for many customers. The 5300 includes many of the same features like being highly customizable and the active home screen.
The 5300 does lack the email client and S60 platform, however it does use the updated S40 platform with a very similar interface (but no Symbian 3rd party applications). The camera on the N75 does seem to be a bit better on the N75, though.
The 5300 seems to be a world apart from the N75 when it comes to functioning as a music player, and the interface on the 5300 seems much speedier.
My conclusion is if you need web/email/symbian apps go f...
