A chic and stylish phone

Advantages: Easy to use; looks great
Disadvantages: Limited features
If you're looking for a stylish phone that looks a little different from the rest, then the Nokia 7370 could be the one for you!
The colour of my phone is gold / cream / brown and it opens using a swivel round motion. This means that all the buttons are hidden when the phone is closed, which means that no phone calls can be made by mistake and there is no need to use a keypad lock. This also adds to the appearance of the phone, as the buttons are hidden, displaying the decorative, floral type design and the front screen. The cover is easy to open, with a small flick of the thumb, the cover swivels and the pictures / symbols / words on the screen cleverly rotate 180 degrees!
The screen is adequate size. When open, it displays three menu words at the bottom (Go to, menu, Names), clock display (analogue or digital) at the top right side and battery / reception / bluetooth etc symbols top left. This leaves adequate space to display a nice photograph on the screen as a screen saver / wallpaper. When closed, the screen does not display the menu words.
The menu page displays 10 separate options (i.e. messaging, log, gallery etc) which are shown using a word and symbol. The screen is easy to navigate. Each option reveals a separate list of further options, which are linked to the separate functions of the phone. All of the options are fairly straightforward to understand. The user manuel ts helpful if you get stuck.
The main functions that I use on this phone are:
calls, messages (including multimedia), alarm and taking photos and for these basic functions, the phone is ideal. There are other functions including:
FM radio, bluetooth, media player, voice recorder, calendar, web, stopwatch.
I have not really used any of these options, however, so I cannot really comment on them.
I was also able to download other features for free including a calculator, world clock and size conversion package.
The phone is ideal for basic mobile phone use and it has more than met my personal needs, but it does have limitations and would not suit someone looking for a more complicated phone with lots of goodies.
I have only managed to download one game, as most seemed incompatible.
The ringtones, screen savers and wallpaper designs available on the phone are limited and to be honest, not very exciting. Ringtones that my husband has sent to my phone have not worked.
The keypad is quite small and you need nimble fingers to operate it.
Overall, I feel that this phone suits someone who wants a nice looking, easy to use, stylish phone that performs basic operations
Summary: A basic phone that looks a little different and will certainly turn heads.
