Softpedia Editor's Review for Nokia Suite
The one and only Nokia desktop application
Written by Bogdan Popa on January 16th, 2012
Nokia Suite is a tool developed by the Finnish company for those who want to take the most out of their Nokia-branded handhelds. Basically, it provides the same features as the popular Nokia PC Suite, but at a different level, offering a wide array of utilities for the latest devices launched by the brand. Installation takes quite a while, but you can still find out what the app is up to thanks to the features presented right in the installer.
Nokia Suite attempts to connect to your mobile phone using the USB cable, but for out tests, we chose the other option, via Bluetooth. If you want to try this method as well, note that it implies reduced transfer speeds. It is, nonetheless, great for mobility since it involves no cables or similar peripherals.
This is definitely a good looking product that comes with a modern and very user friendly interface that allows you to browse its features in a very easy way. However, this fancy looking GUI is one of the reasons for which the application is not at all light on hardware requirements, as it really tends to eat up system resources.
The Nokia Suite includes most features you need to manage files on your mobile phone, including messaging functions to send and receive messages while the device is connected to the computer. Plus, you can sync music, photos and contacts in the same manner iTunes does with iOS devices.
Overall, the feature pack is solid and the list of supported phones quite comprehensive so if your system meets the requirements to comfortably accommodate the software and allow it to run smoothly, Nokia Suite is surely worth a try.
