I’ve been playing with a Nokia N78 for the past 3 weeks already, thanks to the people at WOM World Nokia for sending me a test unit. Yeah, this is just a test unit and I will send it back to them after this review.
So, what’s my experience with a Nokia N78? Will I buy it if I have the money? My answer is NO. Why? Well, because I’m a person who uses text messaging a lot and their keypad is one of the worst-designed keypad for texting. A person with big fingers will find it hard hitting the right keys with this unit. I have this unit for already 3 weeks and I still find it difficult when texting.
However, it is actually feature-packed. It has 3G, EDGE, HSCSD, GPRS, WLAN, Bluetooth and USB support. It has a microSD slot. It has a 3MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics. It has good picture quality. It has stereo speakers and plays as loud as my laptop speakers.
The best feature in it that I will look for if I’m going to buy a new phone is the FM transmitter. Select an FM frequency on the phone, activate it, play your favorite music, set your car stereo to the same FM frequency, and boom! your car stereo starts playing the music! Loud and clear, in stereo sound. Can your Nokia N95 do that? I don’t think so!
I think, the keypad is the only turn-off for me. But if I could find a unit with the same features as the Nokia N78 but with a better keypad, I’ll grab one.
That’s all for my review.
