>> Hi, I'm Kent German, Senior Editor here at cnet.com. Today, we're gonna take a first look at the Nokia 2760. This is a new phone for T-Mobile service. This is a really basic phone, very simple in design and features, just really best for making calls and that is really best for occasional callers. Although call quality was good, the worst thing I didn't like about, the design. So, it's really best for some of us gonna use the phone from time to time. The phone does come in several color combinations. The T-Mobile chooses the blue and silver colors. It's a nice combination. I like the over all look of the phone. It does have a flip-on design, so it's not the usual of Nokia Candy bar that we've seen for so long. On the front, we just have a camera lens here, there is no flash or self-portrait mirror, and the display down below is monochrome so you can't use it for taking vanity shots and it doesn't show photo caller ID as well. Display is pretty large though and it shows other information like the date, time, battery life and things like that. One thing I don't like about the phone is there are no controls on the sides. There's no volume rocker, no kind of camera button anything like that. So, that's means that when you're on a call and you have the phone on the side of your face, you do need to remove and adjust the volume with the toggle. That's really not convenient. It's just not very user-friendly to have to move the phone constantly and do that. On the top, you have a few ports covered by a rubber flap. There is the charger port and a 2.5 mm headset jack. The internal display is large but it is overly bright, kind of a very washed out, especially when you're getting some of the menus, did find it, some of the icons, they're almost hard to see, not a lot of definition. Also, not best for looking photos, graphics, games, anything like that. The keypad buttons and navigation toggle were fine, keypad buttons felt a little cheap. It is kind of a little bit of plastic and you could feel the plastic on the outside so as a whole, the phone feels just the tiniest tad cheap and not the most dirty phone we've had. And the keypad buttons are a bit large and they do have a large numbers and is brightly backlit. When you're running your finger or you're pressing down a lot, they just feel a little cheap. However, the tog navigation array is this large, pretty user-friendly, the toggle is raised just about the surface of the phone so it has a nice definition. Also the OK button is pretty nice, Talk and End key, End key doubles the Power key. The past Nokia usually has had a dedicated power key, so this is something we're moving for a little bit more. As to the call quality is pretty nice, also good for photo quality for a VGA camera. The phone does have Bluetooth as well. It's nice that we're seeing Bluetooth on a lot of basic phones especially from it was that many places are passing, requiring you to drive and use a hands-free calling. The phone also was a little bit sluggish, using some f the menus, things took a couple seconds to open even something like messaging, which is really basic. Also, the phone is even quite managed by dual-band GSM 850/1900 so that means the phone is pretty unusable outside the North America. I'm Kent German and this is the Nokia 2760. ^M00:02:37 [ Music ]
The Nokia 2320 is an ideal phone for occasional callers who need minimal features and a user-friendly design.
The Nokia MD-6 Mini-Speakers are far from perfect, but they offer decent performance for what they are.
The Samsung Tint is fine for occasional cell phone users, but frequent callers and texters won't be pleased.
The Nokia 2680 doesn't offer the best menu interface or speakerphone, but the prepaid phone is a decent basic phone for occasional use.
The Samsung SGH-T109 is fine for occasional callers, but an uncomfortable keypad means that the texting-happy should look elsewhere.
A throwback cell phone with few bells and whistles, the Nokia 2115i for Virgin Mobile is designed almost purely for making and receiving occasional calls.
The Nokia 6650 isn't the sexiest phone around, but it has a decent feature set and performs well.
This is a decent phone for everyday use, but you'll find better camera features in other Sprint models.
The Nokia 7510 is a decent mid-range phone that offers Wi-Fi for making calls. It earns points for a unique design, but we wish the call volume were louder.
Though its call quality could be improved, the Samsung SGH-A227 is a respectable phone for occasional callers.
Nokia 2760 - blue (T-Mobile) Review
The good: The Nokia 2760 has user-friendly controls and its feature set includes Bluetooth. Call quality was satisfying and the photo quality is respectable.
The bad: The Nokia 2760's plastic skin feels rather cheap, and the display is washed out. Speakerphone quality is poor, the menus are sluggish, and the 2760 supports just two GSM bands.
The bottom line: The Nokia 2760 is far from perfect but it's fine for occasional callers, and it has a decent camera to boot.
