This is a great phone! I worked for a Nokia service point in the UK for a number of years, and in all my time there this was one of the few that stood out as being reliable and easy to use without looking dorky. It looks really great. Extremely stylish, cute, small with a well balanced color scheme - so very autumnal. It has a small fabric accent on the side, has a small patch of leather on the back and the trim is a light, brushed gold color. The default wallpapers compliment this with floral, color-matched designs.
Very good. The response time for key presses is lightning fast. Keys click with just the right amount of resistance. The menu system is the standard Nokia interface, so it is also very intuitive. Battery life is good, with 4-5 days between charges for me, and I speak for around 45 minutes per day. Every aspect of using the phone is pleasing, which is what I consider to be very important when selecting a device that is going to be right with you for most of your day.
If you are looking for connectivity (bluetooth/full internet), a good camera or video playback, you won't find it here. The best features of this phone are it's ease of use, talktime and pocket-ability. There is a camera, but it takes poor images. Really poor images! Only useful for snapping a face and slapping it as your background. There is a voice recorder, which some may find useful. The sound quality is excellent.
My 7360 is 4 years old and still going strong. The only thing that has suffered is a drop in signal quality and the occasional cut on calls, but that was due to condensation damaging some of the circuitry. Nothing has gone wrong with the phone that was it's fault due to poor design/engineering.
As the years have gone by, I have become less interested in having the latest technology. I love knowing about the latest, seeing and using it, but I have less of a desire to have it. But with this phone I really feel a kinship with a device. A funny thing to have, yet it is just so personable! And when it eventually dies I'll be on ebay to find another.
Summary: Highly recommended.
