In this review we take a quick look at the Nokia Safari, which is a relatively new phone and one of Nokia’s latest creations. This is a phone that is very similar to the iPhone and also has many of the features available on its ancestor. The big difference however is that it doesn’t have the iPhone’s dock connector. If that’s not an issue for you then the phone has all the major cell phone capabilities. The review follows closely upon my review of the Nokia E71.
I must say that this is one of the best looking phones on the market. I’m sure you’ve seen the ads or perhaps even looked at some of the old Nokia ads on television. The design is really attractive, the size and weight are perfect for carrying along as you go out and the sound quality is also very good. The display is clear and bright and the build quality is very good.
The battery life on the phone was poor in my opinion, it lasted just two hours and forty-five minutes. That’s not very long but the reality is that this phone lasts only a few hours before needing a recharge. To be honest I was a bit disappointed with the lack of battery life but then again, you get what you pay for. Nokia is renowned for having very good battery life and so if you’re expecting battery life on a Nokia Safari review then you’re likely to be disappointed.
The one feature I do find useful is the voice dialing function. You can easily get access to your telephone directory from within the unit and even get access to email as well. It’s great for making local calls as well as long distance calls and it’s quite handy for searching for people too. The screen is large and comfortable and there’s also a big highlight on the screen which is the phone book. The one thing I would like to have is a volume and tone control.
Other features include a video recording feature, Bluetooth, WiFi, Global Positioning System, built in speaker, MMS, and the large LCD display. Nokia Safari is a nice phone and I really like it. Nokia makes a lot of phones, so you should expect some good quality. The battery life is long enough to give you enough usage.
A Nokia Safari review would not be complete without mentioning the battery life. This phone can last a full day on a single charge but to me that’s more than satisfactory. There isn’t any frequent recharging needed. The screen is large and comfortable and I’m able to view what the phone is showing on the screen.

If you are looking for a mobile phone that has everything you could ever need, then the Nokia Safari might just be perfect for you. It’s not expensive but it certainly is worth every penny. Nokia is known for making phones that are easy to use and intuitive. The navigation buttons are also very easy to use. All you need to do is turn it on and point it at the screen and you can get going. From there you simply have access to a variety of applications that will help you with just about anything.
Nokia has taken all of their user service and usability expertise and improved it tremendously. It’s much easier to navigate through the menus and all your applications work quickly and smoothly. I just love how everything is organized and the way it’s connected to your phone. It’s just so easy to use and I can imagine that it would take even more designers to implement all the different widgets and features if they had to do so on a phone that size. Nokia has really pulled out all the stops and I’m very impressed.
