Nokia Surge

4 August 2009
  • Conclusion: This quirky looking Nokia is indeed a good budget smartphone. We get so few S60 smartphones in the US via a carrier (most are sold as unlocked phones sans contract) that it's great to see the affordable Nokia Surge join its more expensive business-oriented big brother the Nokia E71x in AT&T's...
  • Pros: Affordable QWERTY smartphone., Pro: Very affordable smartphone. Very good QWERTY keyboard, excellent GPS. Strong reception and good voice quality. Great speakerphone.

Nokia 6790 Surge

Pocket Lint
16 October 2009
  • Conclusion: As an entry-level phone the S60 sporting Nokia Surge is best described as a mini mini N97 with some of the features stripped out. The S60 interface is looking tired, certainly compared to many of the more innovative handsets from Samsung, LG and INQ, although we are pleased that Nokia opted for the...
  • Pros: QWERTY keyboard, Flash video support
  • Cons: Plastic, too many buttons, S60 looks staid
