Nokia 7705 Twist (Verizon Wireless)


We can safely say that we've never seen a phone like the Nokia 7705 Twist. Sure, we've reviewed square handsets before, and swivel models were in style a few years back; however, we've never had the two design aesthetics combined onto one device. We're...

The Nokia Twist 7705 has a decent range of features, a comfortable keyboard, and admirable call quality

The Nokia Twist 7705 has a polarizing design with a small display and a 2.5-millimeter headset jack. Its photo quality is poor, its streaming video frame size is small, and its call volume could be louder

The Nokia Twist 7705's bizarre design won't be for everyone, but it pulls through with decent features and good call quality. On the other hand, it's not a practical Internet or multimedia device.

Nokia 7705 Twist


Stopping and restarting the video seemed to fix it, although it never quite sounded 100 percent clean. V CAST videos were poorly organized, tough to sift through, and looked pixelated, but played smoothly enough provided I stuck with the standard...

Slick swivel design. Roomy QWERTY keyboard. Good voice quality

Subpar reception. Poor music player performance. Disappointing camera. Non-standard headphone jack

The Nokia 7705 Twist isn't a great performer, but it offers Verizon subscribers looking for a messaging device a way to stand out from the crowd—and you can even see through it.
