Nokia 6500 slide
Advantages: easy to use and navigate screens
Disadvantages: little memory, poor video
I have just upgraded to the Nokia 6500 after a year using a Sony Erricson, and have to say I am glad to be back with a Nokia. The interface is so easy to use, with a very clear menu and easy to use text message input.
Starting with the look of the phone, the design is very sleek and I particulary like the polished metal on the exterior and the minimislist design. The phone has a good sized screen with a very clear display and is quite thin. The slide function is very smooth, a nice touch is the sliding sound effects when you open and close the phone. The keypad is well designed with quite large buttons which make texting easier, even for those with bigger fingers. There is the option to customise the navigation key shortcuts which makes accessing applications much easier.
The camera is very good quality compared to other camera phones I have used. It has a zoom function, although the quality of the picture does suffer if you zoom in too much. The only fault is the flash, which is LED and does not give great quality in darker conditions. The phone also has a video camera, although I have not really used this. One of the big selling points for me with this phone was the music player function, which did not dissapoint. It is extremely easy to transfer music from your PC to the phone and the sound quality is excellent. However, if you want a lot of music as well as photos stored on the phone you may need to buy a larger memeory card as the one that comes with the phone is only 241MB.
This phone has all the basics you would expect along with lots of extras, such as the ability to link your phone to the TV to view photos or watcg vidoes. Overall a great phone with a lovely design and easy to use interface
Summary: fantastic phone, would suit many people
