Nokia N79 review: Swiss Army knife

The good news with Nokia N79 is the Nseries haven't completely run out of inspiration. No gaps in the feature set and distinct looks do sound right for a healthy demand. Solid value as a brand-loyal upgrade and little competition let the N79 hope for quite a success.



We still can't ignore the fact that N79 - and N85 for that matter - are being launched in a time of major transition.read more →

Nokia N85 and Nokia N79 preview: First look

The Nokia N79 seems like a great all-round device - it's got a feature set to match even the substantially more expensive Nokia N85 and it's also got the excellent performance of N78. So summing it up, the Nokia N79 will most probably make a great midrange buy somewhere around Christmas - be sure to watch out for it.

Nokia impresses with a slick and stylish mobile phone

The Nokia N79 a worthy update to the N78 with improvements in almost every sector at pretty much the same price. Even if you have no need for the personalisation or gaming options, it's still a great-looking, very versatile little smart phone.read more →

Nokia N79 Review

In conclusion the N79 is a strong ‘all round’ handset. Although not innovative in design , it does sport the ‘intelligent’ changeable back covers which changes the phone’s theme, something that is unique in its own right. In addition to this, it does have some other nice little features and capabilities described in this review. Good multimedia, a host of connectivity functions plus an excellent internet browser are all wins for the N79.read more →
  • Host of connectivity options
  • Good battery life
  • FM Transmitter
  • Smaller screen compared to some other phones
  • 5MP camera not the best in the market

Nokia N79 review (unlocked)

The Nokia N79 might not be the star of the N series devices, but it still shines as a great multimedia smartphone with plenty of features and fast performance.read more →
  • The Nokia N79 offers a slim and attractive design and packs in a load of multimedia features, including a 5-megapixel camera that takes excellent photos. The Symbian smartphone also features integrated Wi-Fi, U.S. 3G support, Bluetooth, and GPS.
  • The N79's navigation controls and dialpad are a little cramped, and call quality was a bit mixed.
