    The Nokia 2760 is a blast from the past! It's simple, sturdy, and the battery lasts forever. Great for calls and texts, but don't expect any fancy apps. It's a reliable backup phone. I bought the Nokia 2760 for my grandparents, and they love it! Easy to use, large buttons, and they appreciate the old-school flip design. Plus, the battery life is impressive. If you're looking for a basic phone without all the distractions, the Nokia 2760 is perfect. The camera is meh, but it's great for calls and fits easily in my pocket. No complaints here!

    Great phone for someone who wants away from high tech. Battery life is great. Pictures are not like a high end smartphone but they are good for when they come up on the screen. Google maps and YouTube can be used as well. I got a hello plan for 10 bucks a month unlimited talk and text so this is just a work phone. Best thing to is charges usb C. Definitely recommended

    This phone was purchased for my Grandmother, as she wanted to switch to a phone that had a minimalist design. This is still a smartphone, and can do all that smartphones do, but in a much more rudimentary fashion like the transitional phones between the old Nokia bricks and smartphones as we know them now (think Sidekicks or Blackberry phones).

    Build: Very chintzy, feels like it will break in your hand. You eventually get used to it and I don't think it is actually fragile it just doesn't feel as sturdy as perhaps it is. The buttons are mushy are are not very distinct. It makes it harder to type without looking at the keys. It might as well be a touch screen. Software: There is more even in this flip phone than I wanted or needed. I bought this because I am trying to downsize and disconnect. There are apps like Youtube that I will not use and there is no way to hide. The best you can do is move the app to the last page. It is pretty frustrating that it is smart enough to have these apps but not to hide or even delete them. I do really like like apps like the "ToDo" app that comes installed. Things like this that increase productivity are useful. On the other hand the ToDo app is super basic and doesn't even let you rearrange the order of your tasks. The phone, messaging and calendar apps are very slow. These are the most basic things that I am going to use the phone for and there is a lot of lag. Another thing that is really frustrating is that you have to click the enter, back or end call button more than once to get it to work, particularly when you are navigating through the phone. The end call button does not always work and you think you would be able to hold the back button to go home but that is not an option so sometime you have to mash the back button to get all the way back home which is tedious. A lot of the apps are janky and lag when navigating around them. In the contact app when you open it and press "down" to start scrolling through your list the app will just jump back to the top of the list and it will do this indefinitely unless you press down 2 or 3 times in rapid succession. Very annoying. Battery Life: It's great. I don't really have any recent experience of another feature phone to compare this to but it lasts for days without a charge and as long as I can get through one day without a charge anything else is a bonus. It also charges fast which is nice. Camera: I use it to take photos of things I need to remember. I am not using it for photography per se. I will say that it takes forever to actually take a photo from the moment you press the button. Typing: T9 is T9, however I will say that when you are using predictive text and press the 4 key "ghi" expecting to get "I" it will give you "G". Who posts a G on its own? If you press that key you think it would start you off with "I" since that is a very commonly used word but predictive text doesn't really kick in until you add a second letter. You would think that if you pressed the "_"space button after pressing "ghi" that it would correct the "G" and make it an "I" but it does not. This may sound like a nitpick but likely one of the very few things you will be doing with this phone is texting so this is extremely tedious. Other: USB C is very welcome. It can take up to a 32gb SD card. I like to put podcasts on the phone to listen to in my car which leads me to my biggest complaint about this device. The Bluetooth for media is horrendous. I haven't tried using Bluetooth for phone calls but when attempting to listen to audio in my car the audio will just stop and then catch up all at once. The audio skips around so I miss most of anything I am listening to. I would just use the Aux cable but the Aux cable will not play sound out to my car at all and I know that it is not my car because I have an mp3 player that works just fine. In fact, the auxiliary port does not work at all, even on a pair of headphones. Conclusion: I said a lot of negative things about the phone but there are two massive benefits that override all of these complaints. 1) The price It is inexpensive. 2) It is unlocked You can activate it on most GSM carriers (which is most carriers) These two benefits combined are so valuable. I like the red color. It works well enough and you can grow use to the phone's shortcomings. I am saving money on a prepaid carrier and the phone is helping me to unplug which has been much needed for my mental wellbeing. I don't regret my purchase (unless I see something similar for the same price that works better which I have not).

    The large buttons and it answers when you open it and hangs up when you close it. It was purchased for a 86 year old person that was struggling with the iPhone so now happy with the basic large button easy to use phone She didn’t understand stand camera or internet so I deleted all that, she just wanted to make calls and hang up.

    My Nokia 2780 flip phone from Best Buy has taken me on a nostalgia trip! Texting on this retro gem is a thumb symphony - definitely worth the revival. Plus, there's nothing like slamming the phone shut to dramatically end a call - no screen cracks here! Battery life is epic - it lasts for days! "What's a charger?" your smartphone pals will wonder as they hunt for outlets. Embrace the nostalgia and ditch the fancy apps with the Nokia 2780. Welcome back to simpler times! P.S. I tried ordering pizza online with it - didn't work, but the pizza guy was impressed!

    The calling works great, typing the letters can be a hassle. The phone is a little light and seems like it can break easily, but it is on the cheaper side. Scrolling through contacts is a bit slow. Also it takes about 2-3 seconds for messages to load. Keys are big, but flat so can be hard to type at types. The phone does what I need it to. GPS is not automatically updated after each step on the route, you need to manually press the button to go to the next step. With moderate use it holds its charge for about 2-3 days.

    My first phone was an iPhone, I later got a Samsung, now I’ve transitioned to a Nokia flip phone. I’m not a social media user, I just don’t really have a use for a modern smart phone. So because of the major price difference I decided to take a chance on this phone. This phone actually has way more features than I originally expected, I have YouTube, google, many cool and fun apps. I was surprised by the modern applications this phone has. I’m happy with my purchase. The only real downside I have, is the material it’s made with a softer plastic.

    The Nokia 2720 Flip Phone, though a basic phone in the era of smartphones, brings back the simplicity and nostalgia of flip phones with a modern twist. Unlocked for versatility, it allows users to choose their preferred carrier. The phone's compact design makes it pocket-friendly, and the flip mechanism adds a touch of classic style. The physical keypad offers tactile feedback for easy typing and dialing. The external display provides quick access to notifications and caller ID without opening the phone. With essential features like a decent camera, 4G LTE connectivity, and a durable build, the Nokia 2720 is reliable for basic communication needs. The battery life is commendable, ensuring that users won't have to worry about frequent recharging. Ideal for those who prefer simplicity or as a secondary device, the Nokia 2720 Flip Phone Unlocked is a reliable and stylish choice that harks back to the era when phones were primarily for calls and texts.

    This phone has all the features I wanted: a removable battery; a headphone jack; an internet connection; place for a memory card and it's easy to use. I got tired of the planned obsolescence games the Smart Phone industry plays. This phone cost a fraction of what I paid for 2 other Smart Phones. I use my laptop for the internet. The battery for the Nokia lasts longer than the ones in my Smart Phones. I don't know about the camera - haven't used it. I keep a piece of tape over it for privacy.

    AT&T ended 3G service and my dad needed a basic clam shell phone with 4G. The Nokia 2780 is what I and he was looking for. He doesn't need all the apps of typical smart phones because he only needs a cell phone to make basic phone calls. Took the AT&T sim card, popped it into the Nokia, and it works perfect. Charging is by USB-C port like so many other phones are using these days. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because its plastic construction but better than other prepaid clam shell phones I've looked at. My dad loves it because it's so basic and easy for him to use.
