Not quite a camera phone, not quite a satellite navigation phone, definitely not a smart-phone and definitely not a music phone. Jack of all trades master of none. This is a pretty average phone, don't be fooled by the nokia maps and gps features advertised. Firstly, the camera; 3.2 mega-pixels, nothing special, however the camera does perform pretty well, in ideal conditions that is. Don't even think about taking photos at night, because, with an led flash, you won't see anything spectacular, and not having any anti-blur features doesn't help the camera at all. Next, the gps; when I got the phone I was excited to try out these mysterious gps features that had persuaded me to purchase the phone in the first place. But, soon enough, I was let down, the free voice navigation trial that comes with the phone is extremely accurate, even offline, however, if you want to retain the satellite navigation, be prepared to fork out about 50 quid+. Otherwise, you are left with a small, standard, expensive, slider, that can pretty much only do what your last phone did, for twice the price.
My advice for this phone is DO NOT BOTHER! I love Nokia handsets, I have always had one, I got this phone as part of my contract deal in March, 3 weeks later I had problems. It continually froze, kicked me off the web and cut out in the middle of texting. As I worked for the phone company at the time I was able to return it for a new but same model. I put it down to it being a faulty handset, however about 5 weeks after having my new one, the same thing happened, I am now on my third handset and the same thing has stared to happen.
I got this phone because I also needed a sat nav at the time and thought It would be saving money by having the two together. That's fine in theory but not in practice, the navigator is absolutely pointless. By the time it picks up a gps signal you could have found your way around the old fashioned way using an A to Z book. I have had this phone now for 7 months and I have still not been able to successfully travel to an acquired destination using this navigator, so now I don't bother even trying.
The camera is only good for pictures at very close range and works intermittently, and that was all 3 handsets. I get a message stating general error and you have to come and try it again to take a picture.
The only good thing about this phone is, it quite nice to look at and that is it.
I recieved the Nokia 6210 navigator about six months ago when I renewed my contract. As I am a stay-at-home mum of two I didn't get a chance to check the phone out on the internet or in-store, I just took the advice of one of the advisors at Vodaphone. I am regretting my quick decision and wish I had spent more time researching the phone as I find it quite a bulky and it's certainly isnt' a flattering phone to have in your back-pocket if you're a girl! I often cut people off when chatting and pushing the pram if I accidentally slide the phone. The camera is good - not brilliant, I often hit the navigator button by mistake and haven't tried the GPS navigator system out as yet. I find texting ardious at times as the top three buttons are right next to the top part of the phone that slides. Overall I would say this is more suitable for a bloke!
