    - The 2.4" QVGA resolution display on the E66 is very bright, and easily readable in direct sunlight.
    - The automatic screen rotation ability of the E66 is quite handy for web browsing, as well.


  • - Lighting was problematic as well, and the camera couldn't manage a well-lit photograph even in our studio light box.
    - It was difficult to find the correct settings for logging onto AT&T's network with the Nokia E66 as a tethered modem, but with some proper digging, we managed to get the feature working properly.
    - Calls on the Nokia E66 sounded good, though we had some trouble with background noise on the busy streets outside our New York office.

    - Data speeds as measured using DSL Reports mobile speed test were very good at an average of 650kbit/s.
    - The buttons surrounding the d-pad are completely flat and with 9 of them loaded together in a small space-- good luck selecting the right one if you're not looking at the phone.
    - The entire screen acts as a viewfinder and image save times are quick.
    - The E66 can also record video suitable for MMS and there's a shortcut to send video and photos via MMS in the camera post-view screen.

    - The navigation controls beneath the display are a bit difficult to use.
    - In order to make room for a larger battery, Nokia removed the protective camera lens.
    - The N95 measures a compact 3.8 inches long by 2.1 inches wide by 0.8 inch thick and weighs only 4.2 ounces.
    - It feels comfortable to hold, and the soft-touch finish on the back of the device makes it easier to grip.
    - The Nokia N95 North American Edition adds 3G support and longer battery life.

    - Unfortunately for the US consumer, the model underwent no changes meaning that 3G and all of the associated features, such as video calling and increased data speeds, could not be used.

    - The keys are very stiff and located even lower on the slider than on the N80, which makes them a bit of a tough reach for somebody with large hands.
    - I believe Nokia did a fine job on the physical design of the N95.
    - Nokia's N95, the subject of this review, takes the capabilities of a mobile phone to a new level.

  • - Quite simply this is the best value phone we've seen all year.
    - This phone has one powerful trick up its sleeve, though: its incredibly low price.
    - A glossy plastic section covers the screen and carries on round the keyboard, giving the phone a nice uniform look.


  • - The Nokia C3 supports Wi-Fi (there's no 3G or GPS, though) which is a great bonus to have at this price.

    - The keys are perfectly spaced and the material is soft to the touch, which means typing long emails and texts is an absolute breeze.
    - The C3’s 2.4-inch screen, which clocks in at 320 x 240 pixels, is both crisp and bright.


  • The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 offers a slick, user-friendly design with a solid feature set and good call quality. Data performance was uneven, however, and the Timescape application and keyboard miss some details.

    The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is a well made cell phone with great build quality. The plastics it's made from appears proper and robust. The chrome framing is an enjoyable counterpoint and lends color to the overall design. Those of you with keen interest in the exact impression they make will be happy to find out that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will indeed attract the attention of people around you... Not noticing the X10 is like failing to see Godzilla crunching a snack at table next to you. It's just that handsets with such enormous displays are still scarcer than chicken teeth. The fact they are not extremely comfortable to use on a daily basis is... another matter.


  • - It's got all the makings of a true classic - a whopping 4-inch screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and it's rocking Android with a cool overlay.
