>> Kent: Hi, I'm Kent German, Senior Editor here at CNET.com. Today we're gonna take a first look at the Nokia Mirage 2605 this is a new phone for Verizon Wireless service. This is a CDMA Nokia phone and most of their phones tend to be low-end in a CDMA category and this is definitely the case with this phone. This phone is not it I can tell ya, I did not like this phone at all, in fact, I broke it within the first 5 minutes of getting it out of the package, not a good sign in the least. The phone felt very flimsy, never felt like it was solid, was very scared of dropping it and also had poor call quality so if you have the bad design and the bad call quality not really a phone you want to buy at all. One unique design feature it has and this is not a good thing is there are these what they call them Express On Snaps; there's one here on the top it surrounds the camera lens and then there's one here on the bottom. But in the box you also get replaceable design in this sort of blue camouflage thing you see here. The snap removes, you can take it off like this but I did break the silver one the first time I took it off there are these little plastic tabs they're very fragile I just can't imagine a worse design decision, I think, than this. The external display is pretty colorful for a phone of this caliber. Open up the phone inside you'll see the internal display it's pretty small for the phone's overall size, navigation controls and keypad very slippery, the keypad buttons, especially, felt very cheap I did not like the way they felt beneath my finger. It does have voice-activated dialing, it does have Bluetooth and the VGA camera but if you really want a phone that just for making calls this definitely skip this one and go for something else in Verizon's lineup. I'm Kent German and this is the Nokia Mirage 2605. ^M00:01:37 [ Music ]

Despite a few design issues, the Nokia BH-208 is a basic and comfortable Bluetooth headset with decent call quality.
As with all Nokia N series smartphones, the Nokia N78 impresses with its high-end features, especially the new geotagging tool, but we were slightly disappointed by the spotty call quality.
The Nokia 2660 is an easy-to-use basic phone for making calls. It offers good audio quality, but it's slower than it should be.

The Nokia E63 offers a more wallet-friendly price tag compared to other unlocked smartphones and does so without sacrificing too many features; we just we wish the call quality and camera were better. Read review
