Symbian Phone With Flexible Placement of Main Screen
14 April 2013
Summary: The N93 is heavy. It is dated (2006) and some of its pieces are obsolete. So, why get one now? It still does all the stuff it did in 2006, quickly and, if you are familiar with Symbian OS, with little or no learning curve. Let's look at what is dated first: § It has a pop port for physical connectivity § It takes a miniSD card 2GB maximum capacity § It has a 2mm Nokia pin charge port § No touch screen § IR port § small external color screen § WiFi is b/g The pop-port is...
Excerpt: I just bought the Nokia Twist from a Verizon store. I love cutesy things so this is perfect for me. I love how it's easy to manipulate and it looks like a mini flat TV. I have never had a phone like this. The camera quality is decent. I can personalize avatars to look like my friends and family. The battery quality is great (lasting me about 4 days with a bunch of texting, calls, taking pics, etc.) Personally, this is a bit kiddish, but I still love it.
I love it...but I wish I would've gotten a better phone.

Excerpt: I got this phone a few months ago and I am over-all happy with it. Before, I had a LG Voyager. I hated it with a passion. When i first got the Nokia Twist, I loved it but then things started going wrong. I've had it replaced twice. First, the keys just stopped working. Second, the display wouldnt turn on. So, in other words, I like it but as soon as i can replace it, i will.
Uniquely designed phone, but horrible camera quality!

Excerpt: I recently switched carriers over to Verizon wireless, where this Nokia Twist was free with activation. It claimed to have a brilliant 3.0 megapixel camera with flash, of course among many other features. I'll start by saying that the phone itself is quite unique, and i love the design: before opening it, it's a simple square, with a hole that almost looks like you can hook it on your keychain, with touch screen front (with the exception of the "OK" button), and when...
Excerpt: The Nokia twist is a sweet looking phone! It's small when not open then you twist it open and you have a full size keyboard which i LOVE! I love to text and hated have to use my old phone when the letters are on the number pads. That was a big pain to use. Now i twist and type away! Cause of it's shape and style you'll be getting lots of comments on it!! On the face of the phone it has two places on it that are touch and a middle button that is just a regular button.
Excerpt: I purchased this phone mostly because it reminded me of a blackberry. I'm too cheap (and broke!) to add the stupid data plan onto my plan because I doubt I would use it and I think it's a waste of money. The main reason I wanted a blackberry is because I like the look and feel of them - I don't need it for email, I don't need internet, I don't need to view documents or download special apps. I already have an iPod Touch and I use it for all of those things.
Excerpt: The Nokia Twist is certainly an interesting phone. It has an interetsing design where you have to twist it to open it. Hence, the name "Twist". Really it's like a slide-type phone, but with a twist (see what I did there?). The screen part of the phone turns to the side to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard underneath. So, this phone is wonderufl for texting. The buttons are big enough and it makes text messaging simple and easy. The reception overall has been good.
Excerpt: Before I got this phone, I read through A LOT of reveiws on Verizon's website. There were a fair amount that were 5 stars, but most were 3 or below. Because I thought the phone looked cool and that most reviews were decent, I decided to try it. Here's my story: exactly one week after getting it, it broke at the swivel point. The guy at Verizon said they couldn't do anything for me, so I went another two weeks with a twisty tie going through it.
Excerpt: I have a Nokia Twist. I didn't pick this phone on purpose, but it was a consilation prize after I went through four crappy phones. So on the fourth return, the guy helping me said that I could trade the crappy one for the Nokia Twist. I like the phone because of the size and shape. It is just a little square and it fits nicely into a little pocket in my purse (so I don't loose it). It twist up which is unique.
