Review: Nokia 7705 Twist
The Twist has a 2.4-inch QVGA display. It looks OK, but not super fantastic. I had no problems reading it indoors or out. It is very colorful, and images, icons and graphics appear smooth and free of pixelated edges. It gets the job done, no doubt, but it isn't going to knock any one's socks off.
As with most Verizon phones, the Twist has two signal indicators, one for 1X and one for EVDO. In my tests, I'd rate the Twist with a "mediocre" when it comes to signal performance. The EV signal indicator never made it above 2 bars, and the 1x indicator never made it above 3. More to the point, I had at least two dropped calls, and saw some goofy data performance; specifically, failed and/or stalled connections. Nokia's phones generally perform very well as phones. Sadly, that's not the case with the Twist.
Users can set the Twist's ringers to be plenty loud. You're not going to miss any calls as long as you're even remotely near your phone. That includes in places such a moderately noisy coffee shops and restaurants. Similarly, the earpiece is loud enough for most calling environments. I had no problems hearing those I was speaking to, and neither did they have any problems hearing me. Quality of calls (those that weren't dropped) was very good. Very little noise, interference or other cellular nonsense.

The Twist performs well when it comes to battery life. I easily and consistently made it through three days using the device. I'd say if you're going to limit yourself to sending messages and some calls, and skip the heavy Web use, the Twist will make it through a weekend no problem.
