Nokia 2705 Shade Review

 

The Nokia 2705 Shade is the new stylish replacement to the 2605 Mirage, which launched December 2008. Changes include a 1.3MP camera and 176x220 resolution internal display, but other than that there is very little difference. The 2705 Shade is an...

Nokia 2705 Shade – A Basic Phone With Poor Build Quality

 

Nokia haven't been too busy in the market, it is been a while since they launched a high end phone. If you are a Nokia fan, there is nothing much exciting for you, so you will have to do with these entry level phones like Nokia 2705 Shade.The Nokia...

Nothing in particular

Cheap plastic feel, bad quality speakerphone

Nokia 2705 Shade is good for people who need a phone just for talking and sending text messages but it doesn’t have any of those high end features. We wouldn't recommend this camera even in the entry level phone range owing to its poor exteriors. They...

Worked ok, for 10 months, then no ringer.

 

This phone served me well as an emergency backup until one day it quit ringing when a call came in.

Sleek, small, good sound

Shiny and easy to smudge, buttons are hard to hit correctly, ringer quit working after 10 months of very gentle use

Nokia 2705 Shade - black (Verizon Wireless)

 

Unbelievably excellent sound quality for an ultra-small phone of this size! I hear everybody perfectly clearly, and I still have 2 more volume bars to spare. Everybody says they can hear me perfectly. Better than several previous phones we've had. I...

Tiny size. Excellent call quality. Nice menus and features. Sharp looks. TINY

Questionable build (covers) quality. Too shiny (scratches and fingerprints)

This phone is a joke

 

I got this phone when it was time for me to upgrade. I previously had a green enV. I wanted something lighter and I got it. That's about the only thing this phone has going for it. It's light. This phone feels so cheap it's insane. The front and back...
