Review of the stylish Nokia 7205 Intrigue for Verizon
5 May 2009
Excerpt: Nokia has been a fairly small player in the CDMA world, in spite of its status as number 1 manufacturer in the world. With the 7205 Intrigue for Verizon, the company aims to get a foothold. Ricky tests it out in this review, and likes what he sees.
Excerpt: The Nokia Intrigue is a solid phone with nice multimedia support and a no-frills approach. Internet junkies will not like the awkward web input, but overall the Intrigue is a well-rounded phone at a nice price.
Pros: Nice multimedia functionality; crisp screen
Cons: No out-of-the-box music transferring; awkward web input
Summary: The $129 Nokia 7205 Intrigue is stylish and lightweight, and offers good call quality, plus access to Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music service, which includes a library of some 5 million downloadable (albeit, pricey) songs. Before you buy, we strongly suggest checking out the $69.99 LG Chocolate 3, which also boasts Verizon’s clear voice quality and V CAST and VZ Navigator features. However, the Intrigue makes a case for itself with a faster Rev.
Pros: Sleek lightweight design, Habitat mode gives easy access to five most recent contacts, Reliable call quality, Above-average camera,
Cons: Expensive for a nonsmart phone, No 3.5mm headphone jack, Poor video quality, Users must download songs second time for PC copy,
