    Nokia N76 gets reviewed

    Chris Ziegler

    The N76 represents the pinnacle of style as far as the S60 camp goes, and though MobileBurn's review of a production unit is tinged with a few sour points, it's done little to curb our enthusiasm. The phone's strong suits are pretty much what we expected: it's crazy thin (again, by S60 standards, not Samsung's), its S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 firmware is a solid smartphone contender with a web browser improved over its predecessor's already-fantastic version, the primary display is gorgeous and readable in direct sunlight, and the 3.5mm headphone jack is a welcome addition. On the downside, though, MobileBurn found that the jack suffered from hiss (unlike our experience with the N95), the camera wasn't great thanks to a lack of autofocus or manual focus ring, and there were some design and manufacturing issues that left the reviewer less than thrilled with the phone's physical appearance. At the end of the day, though, it's a super-thin flip smartphone -- and in that unusually narrow market segment, beggars can't be choosers.
