The Nokia E75 is a compact business phone with both, a regular keypad and a QWERTY one. Take a close look at the phone as we detail its features, tech specs and price in this review.

Design and Looks
The Nokia E75 looks like an eyesore from up front. But to quote a trite saying 'looks are often deceptive'. So it follows that the cheap looking glossy front of the Nokia E75 has absolutely no bearing on its excellent functionality. On analyzing the front a little more carefully, users will notice that it's the cheap and ugly looking alphanumeric keypad that make this otherwise gorgeous and rounded phone look fat and unappealing. The only good thing about the front in the nice large 2.6 TFT screen that produces lively images and exhibits good legibility under direct sunlight- even if colours do get washed out under the bright light.

Below this display are the D-pad and the alphanumeric keypad that we've already talked about. The D-pad is comfortable to use but the eight soft, call and context keys surrounding it are poorly designed and hard to use. The alphanumeric keypad underneath the D-pad is as bad as it looks and offers zero tactility or touch-orientation. This keypad is fit only for dialing numbers and nothing more. The entire front fascia is bordered by a metallic accent that goes well with the chrome-coloured bottom half of the phone.

But the bad construction is only at the front. This phone has a QWERTY underneath the screen that slides seamlessly. This 4-row QWERTY plays host to large easy-to-press keys that offer superb feedback and tactility. The construction of this chrome keypad is solid and ergonomically sound. It makes you appreciate the phone's slimness despite incorporating a sliding QWERTY. We guess some compromises (bad keypad on the front) had to be made to accommodate this amazing QWERTY keyboard. The good looks don't just end here but also extend to the steel-cum-opaque plastic covered back of the phone. In an ironic twist, it looks like Nokia put in more effort here than they did when designing the front. Like the QWERTY, the construction of the back is fool-proof and worthy of the quality standards observed on all E-series phones.

Like all E-series phones, the E75 is powered by the Symbian 9.3 operating system that mounts the Series 60 3rd Edition user interface with feature pack 2. The processing muscle is provided by an ARM 11 369MHz processor which is more than capable of running multiple applications at a time. The Symbian-S60 combo incorporates few changes from its previous incarnations but that's because the OS-UI had always been complete with very few bugs to be taken care of or additions to be made. Some of these minor changes are advanced accelerometer controls including auto-rotation or turn-to-mute and tap-to-mute (to silence calls and alarms) functions, a talking theme function and a choice between two phone settings (one for business and one for personal.)

The UI also features the usual suspects like the ever-useful Active Standby in the homescreen, a fully functional phone book, good voice recognition and the Remote Lock security feature that helps delete sensitive data on the phone even after it is stolen.

Not surprisingly, telephony is good with voice clarity and reception proper at both ends of the line. On the flipside, the speakerphone performs abysmally and may not be audible in noisy environments even with the volume at its maximum. Finally, the phone also offers VoIP support which is always welcome.

Email is one of the phone's top priorities. But a good enough QWERTY alone cannot make up for a flawless email experience. Keeping this principle in mind, Nokia have incorporated a fantastic email client that is versatile and flawless save for one detail- no Blackberry Connect support. Apart from this, the client provides full support for a variety of email standards. Email setup is automatic and there is also mobile VPN support to connect to secure corporate intranets and email encryption.

The phone's connectivity is a complete package with every form of medium covered from infrared to GPS. The phone also has an excellent browser with full flash support. The phone also houses an extensive organizer. QuickOffice is also present here to help users view and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. Other odds and ends include an advanced search, dictionary and a few N-Gage games.

Despite being a dedicated business phone, the E75's media playing capabilities are quite good. The music and video player are indeed functional and intuitive. There is also FM radio and Internet radio. The amazing media experience also benefits from the good display and a great audio quality. An added extra is the standard 3.5mm audio port that lets users connect any type of headset to the phone.

The phone's camera seems impressive specs-wise but performs poorly in practice. The 3.2MP camera with autofocus and LED flash produces grainy images that show poor contrast, low resolved detail and a narrow dynamic range. The only good thing about the camera is a great interface with an exhaustive list of imaging options. Video however is decent with clips recorded at VGA resolution and 24 frames-per-second.

A final application that's worth mentioning is the GPS receiver installed on the phone. It supports A-GPS functionality and integrates well with Nokia's proprietary GPS application: Nokia Maps 2.0 that is preinstalled on the phone.

In a word the Nokia E75 is a better version of the E71 with a different form factor and tweaked performance. But with the new E72 around the corner, deciding which phone to pick-up will be a tough call.
