At least it’s solid and stable, chunky but ok for a smartphone (and it’s one of the smallest N-series handsets). But it attracts fingerprints like crazy.
The keypad is quite odd. At first sight the silvered strips that contain four of the functional keys create the impression of button chaos: but when you get more used to it, the key positioning is actually sensible and comfortable. The screen is disappointing, though – the image is vivid and sharp but most graphics lack precision in the detail. It has the rather good 2mp camera from the N70, let down only by the way the lens cover slides open too easily (which automatically activates the camera application).
It lacks 3G and Infrared, and it has less memory than other smartphones. It comes in almost the same price as the N70 model but has fewer features. The main advantage? Probably the plethora of software and games available, since it doesn’t use Symbian’s 3rd edition UI.
