Nokia 6790 Surge

Cell Phone Reviews by Cellphonedia
15 October 2010
  • Excerpt: For a long time Nokia has been making phones that do not really score as the best phones in the market. The Nokia 6790 Surge aims to be a device that aims to focus on the messaging and other features of a smartphone. This QWERTY sporting smartphone is ideal for those who are not in a position to pay the hefty bills Apple or HTC phones demand. Equipped with great features the surge is surely a good option that one can check out.
  • Pros: The phone is feature rich, It provides easy access to social networking sites
  • Cons: The phone has some quirks in its design, It is difficult to dial numbers without opening the keypad

Nokia Surge 6790 Review

17 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Had Nokia put a touchscreen on this baby or a slide-down dialpad, and we’d be talking about a first-rate phone. But by making it so awkward just to access the handset’s prime function – dialing to make a call – and piling on a host of assorted minor niggles, the Surge can’t help but take a few hard knocks.
  • Pros: Bright, crisp 2.4-inch LCD; slideout QWERTY keyboard; excellent music and video players; fast and easy to surf Web browser; accelerometer
  • Cons: No touchscreen; awkward direct dialing; microUSB jack isn't for charging; no 3.5mm jack; no threaded messaging

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 lineup.
  • Pros: Affordable QWERTY smartphone., Pro: Very affordable smartphone. Very good QWERTY keyboard, excellent GPS. Strong reception and good voice quality. Great speakerphone.
  • Cons: plasticky, odd design not for everyone., Con: Unlike the overseas version, there's no WiFi. Ugly duckling design. Stiff and noisy d-pad.Once in a while the phone lags.

Nokia 6790 Surge Review

13 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Nokia 6790 Surge , The Symbian S60-based smartphone is aimed squarely at social media freaks, boasting a full QWERTY keyboard, a browser with Flash support, a pre-installed JuiceCaster app for easily updating your Facebook / Twitter status and a price tag that's sure to turn heads. For just $79.99 after rebate, and the pleasure of handing over at least $30 per month for a required data plan. If you're sold already, you can get yours on July 19th.

Nokia 6790 Surge

29 December 2009
  • Excerpt: The prolific cell phone manufacturer Nokia produces such a high volume of models that surely one will fit your needs. The Nokia 6790 Surge, however, while a competent phone, may not be the best choice. The reason I say it may not be your best choice is because nothing about this model jumps out as being unique, or uniquely useful.

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 more functional S60 over S40 OS. The form factor does make for easy typing, but everything else just lacks excitement. Sorry.
  • Pros: QWERTY keyboard, Flash video support
  • Cons: Plastic, too many buttons, S60 looks staid
