Review: Nokia 7510

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's  

Screen

The 7510's display is one of its strong points. It is bright, clear and razor sharp. Everything - icons, text, pictures - simply looks amazing on the 7510's display. Reading it outdoors in the sun wasn't a problem. My only complaint is that there isn't enough of it. It measures 2.2 inches, but there's a lot of dead space around it that would great to add to the display's real estate.

Signal

Most Nokias perform well when it comes to collecting signal, and the 7510 was no different. Most places I took it in the metro NYC area are well-covered by T-Mobile's network, according to the 7510, which held onto 3 or 4 bars nearly everywhere. The only time the bars dropped to 1 or 2 was in several buildings (including the NJ vault) and my basement. I didn't miss any calls due to signal issues, didn't experience any dropped calls, and data performance was always snappy and never timed out.

Sound

Sound quality was not stellar. First, even set all the way up, the ringer was not loud enough for my tastes. You'll hear it from several rooms away if everything is quiet, but introduce any reasonable amount of noise, such as a TV, and it would be easy to miss calls. I could hear the ringer OK with the phone sitting next to me in a coffee shop, but not at all in a loud bar. Same goes for the earpiece volume. Set all the way up, calls were hard to hear in quiet environments, let alone noisy places. Calls were difficult to make out in coffee shops, and pretty much impossible in bars. If you actually need to hear the person you're speaking with, go outside or somewhere quiet. Quality of the sound was below par for a Nokia. There was lots of hissing and burbling.

Battery

I can't complain about the 7510's battery life. I fully charged it on a Tuesday, and, two weeks later (with no use), it still had 50% of its battery life left. I was able to kill off that remaining 50% in about a day with very heavy use, including calls, messages, browsing (via Wi-Fi) and taking pictures. You can probably leave the charger at home for a weekend away, but it might be a good idea to bring it just in case.
