Nokia Astound ( T-Mobile)


The Nokia Astound boasts a sleek, premium design and affordable price tag. Call quality is good, and the phone's 8-megapixel camera takes great photos and video.

The smartphone can be sluggish and the Symbian 3 operating system is still behind the curve in ease of use and functionality.

The Nokia Astound is a beautifully designed and affordable smartphone for T-Mobile, but there are other budget-friendly options available with better performance and that are easier to use.

Nokia Astound


Excellent call quality ; Good battery life ; Slim, attractive design

Camera has no autofocus ; Symbian feels outdated

The Nokia Astound is a great phone for users who want an affordable, yet full-featured smartphone, but the Symbian platform isn't the most user-friendly.

Nokia Astound (T-Mobile)

Beautiful hardware. 8-megapixel camera. Good voice quality. Excellent e-mail support. Some high-quality apps

OS can be difficult to use at times. Some crashes. Very tiny keyboards. Fewer apps than Android or Windows Phone

The Nokia Astound is a great value for an 8-megapixel camera phone, but its app selection doesn't measure up to Android's.

Looking at the design of the Nokia Astound we see how the features come together with the user interface of its fully customizable home screen, themes and profiles of this Nokia C7 Astound Symbian^3 based smartphone

The Nokia Astound is a relatively good phone with decent performance. The phone looks great, is easy on the eyes and is comfortable to carry. This Nokia phone comes with the Symbian^3 OS interface with the gesture controls and it is an improvement over...
