Reviews summary

Based on 1 reviews

The Nokia 7705 Twist definitely puts a new spin on sliders with a unique form factor that fits easily into a shirt pocket but swivels open to reveal a full QWERTY keypad.

Unlike other phones that have hit the market with a unique design at the expense of a solid feature set, the Twist comes up a winner with a 3MP camera with flash, auto focus, video recording and dedicated camera key. It also has Bluetooth, a 2.5mm headset jack and HTML browsing.

The 2.4-inch 320 x 240 pixel resolution screen is clear and shows colors well, but is certainly below many of the high res screens now available.

Additional interesting features include interchangeable faceplates and a “Contact Light Ring” on the front bottom right of the phone for event and contact notifications, and photo-editing software that will allow you to create customized slideshows (included).

When closed the Twist is a small attractive square with rounded corners.

This is a fun phone and seems designed for a young demographic that enjoys heavy texting and taking good pictures. With the surprisingly comfortable keypad and expanded camera functions and included software, the Nokia Twist will surely appeal to many.

If you fall into the category of people who value messaging over any other function in a phone, the Twist from Nokia may be up your alley. It is the latest in a new breed of squarish-shaped devices that hide full QWERTY keyboards within. It certainly has personality and that Nokia flair for design. Verizon is up to its old tricks when it comes to the software, however. Is the Twist twisted enough to overcome its quirks?
There is a rudimentary browser-based Apps Catalog available to the Twist. Users can choose to download applications such as WeatherBug, WikiMobile, Guitar Tuner, and a handful of others.
The Twist supports mono and stereo Bluetooth headsets. Pairing with either kind was a snap. Sound quality through both was decent, though I thought the sound quality via mono headsets was poorer than I've heard on phones in recent memory.
The clock on the Twist is awesome!
The Twist has GPS and works with Verizon's VZNavigator software. In testing, I found the GPS to be very accurate and it was quick to locate me when outdoors. Verizon's GPS software hasn't changed, and it works well. Plotting routes is a snap, and it picked logical and quick routes.
