I love its aluminum bezel around the screen.I love the big screen that allowed you to read texts so easily.I love how it never crashes, never HAD to be synced and well, just worked (and looked cool at it!)Engadget Reader100July 12, 2009Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The 7110, still one of my favourite gadgets, was my definitive phone at its time. What made it special for me:An integrated vibrator at a time when others had just add-ons, if at all. Modern Li-Ion battery did away with memory effects and gave you superior operation times. Infrared allowed exchanging of contacts and even simple printing to IrDA-enabled printers. Saving multiple numbers to a single contact was also very rare back then. The NaviRoller made navigating all these details very easy on the big screen. Use your thumb to roll up or down to your desired entry, select by pushing - fast and precise. Text-entry with T9. The finish was a matte 2 color tone that shimmered either greenish or reddish, depening from where the light came.Highlight in function and design: The spring operated keyboard cover, which pops down at the touch of the button (behind the antenna) and even brings the microphone closer to your mouth, delivering superior voice reception in even the worst environments (tested on a fairground) and souveraign call pickup and release (think Neo in The Matrix - he had a custom 8110 tho?).All these sweet features had a price. In money (I payed 800 Deutsche Mark cash over the counter) and in size. But the 7110, although being equipped with the standard Nokia battery interface, got a special battery from its makers: one with a flat butt, making the 7110 a smooth object in your pocket, effectively reducing the subjective size.All together, I really love this phone and was heartbroken when it had to be replaced after many years because the slide contacts of the microphone got crackly, the spring lost its bite, the battery started giving in and the nice finish got stale. Never the less, I still carry the phone in my glovecompartment with a car-charger for nostalgia (and emergencies). Picking up calls with a gesture (press the button to pop open the slide) has marked the way I will choose my phones for ever.Thank you for a phone this leet!
