Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition Review: Lead The Way

By 04:46 Tue, 10 Aug 2021 Comments


Navigation on a feature phone, are they for real? Obviously Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition is keen to surprise. It’s among the rather few feature phones that come with free full-featured navigation. It even has all the cool accessories to create it feel correct at home in your vehicle.

It’s rare to see a dedicated SatNav phone but that doesn’t mean we’ll let the Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition pass lightly in other departments. It still has to prove it deserves your hard earned cash.

No matter if you’re walking or driving, the Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition promises to hold you to your destination. But that’s not all it can do for you. Here, hold a see at the rundown of the key features and the major disadvantages as we saw them:

Key features:

  • Affordable feature phone with GPS navigation capabilities
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support
  • 2.2" 256K-color QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display with fine sunlight legibility
  • Refreshed S40 user interface, 6th edition
  • 2 megapixel fixed-focus camera
  • QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) video recording at 15fps
  • Stereo Frequency Modulation (FM) radio with RDS
  • Bluetooth (with A2DP) and microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port
  • microSD card slot (16 Giga Bytes (GB) supported, 2GB included)
  • Standard 3.5mm audio jack
  • Rich preinstalled application package
  • Ovi Maps, Store, Contacts and Share
  • Opera Mini 4.2 web browser
  • Digital compass

  • Top-notch audio output quality
  • Bundled with car holder and car charger

Main disadvantages:

  • Smallish display with narrow viewing angles
  • Maps only work in portrait mode
  • Camera lacks autofocus and flash
  • Doesn't charge off the microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port
  • No smart dialing
  • No multi-tasking
  • No office document viewer

Clearly, there are some features missing from that specs sheet. The Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition doesn't have a nice capturing camera and the display could have been larger and of better quality. We totally acquire that - it's positioned quite low in the product portfolio. Still, some of the omissions that are inherent to S40 such as the lack of a document viewer or smart dialing - competition have had those covered for a long time on various models. There's no excutilize for Nokia and their S40 on skimping on such simple features.

But on the positive side, you acquire a regular no-nonsense handset with nice and conservative styling, solid battery life and excellent build quality. You also won’t be breaking the bank buying it and you can count on its enhanced location-awareness.
