The Nokia E75 passed inadvertent to me when it was announced February this year. Months passed and I did not bother to get one for review here at the Nokia Mobile Blog. I first thought of the E75 as just a transition while the touchscreen Eseries are ready; and, it probably is, but that doesn’t demerit the quality of the E75. Now I realize what I have been missing for almost 5 months.
One way or another, the E75 literally appeared on my door. I have had the black Nokia E75 for one day, and I am completely astonished at the level of perfection on this device. It has that unknown factor that you can’t actually describe but makes you like it, even more than higher-ended devices. Now, I won’t make a review on this device because it is a bit late for that, but I will share some thoughts about the Nokia E75.
Part of what makes the E75 very special is the way it is built, rock-solid falls short. The E75 is a pleasure to hold in the hands, you feel you have something trusty, strong, complete, powerful in your hand. The sliding mechanism is impeccable: tic-tac and that’s it, makes me remember of the very expensive 8800 series from Nokia. Another brilliant aspect of the E75 is the case that comes with it, it has design, is not just any random pouch to protect the phone. The case is first of its kind, all leather, and has a very unique opening mechanism: the E75 is held so tight by the case that you need to pull a string to pull the device out.
The hardware part of the E75 has absolutely no discussion, it is perfect. As well as the software part of it. The E75 is fast, and think faster than what you just thought. It also packs functionality, the built-in Nokia Messaging E-Mail client is just comparable to any other E-Mail client, even desktop E-Mail clients. The E75 also has all the little details that Eseries devices have, improved Calendar, Contacts, Home Screen, Clock, Office and so on. All that combined with solid multimedia capabilities, strong battery life and impeccable design, the E75 is the epitome of the smartphone.
