DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE, YOU WILL DEFINITELY REGRET IT! I got this phone (it was 6945 version) brand new (I also had various phones), and problems were following:

- Battery life is short (1,5 day max)
- All data in the phone memory dissapeared TWICE
- Unstable wireless connection
- After the installation of multiple applications (FROM TRUSTED SUPPLIERS), phone works muuuck slower (although none of them were running in background)
- When trying to make a call, it freezes (solved that with new software from 6915, 6915 and 6945 are the same phones)
- Can't get MMS Messaging to work
- In the camera mode, after turning GPS positioning and frame counter, these can't be shut down without a reset (soft or hard)
- Camera is very bad, even for 1,3 mpix (compare nokia 6230i with same camera and display 65K)
- It takes forever (more tahn 5, even 10 min+)to read SIM contacts
- Lack of option to mark all contacts or delete all at once, you have to delete one contact at the time.
- Video player doesn't support a medium quality and medium resolution .MP4 files, only .3gp and .H.263.
- SMS messaging: it's hard to switch between capital and small letters, without using the touchscreen (it shows cal letters on, and then it turns cap.l. off for no reason).
- Speaker sound is too weak
- Below average sound quality on the headphones (original ones)
- It doesn't support animations (only shows first frame of.GIF file)
- Freezes when trying to change profile (eq. from general to silent).
- Below average network reception
- QWERTY keys too small

I could go on an on, and on, but there is on point. this phone was carefully used and it still did all of this and more.
MY FRIENDLY ADVICE, AVOID THIS PHONE !

well..it runs dvd rips with subtitles, skype, igo8 and if you want games call of duty 3d works.battery lasts 2-3 days with low usage. the menu is a little bit slow sometimes, the phone is a little bit fat :) and takes a little bit more to recharge. it's a great phone, gps and pda...

This is the phone that it came more than 3 years and i'm still using it and it's 100% working condition.

3.I used to watch 700MB DVD-RiP movies in this phone using core player.
4.Good music quality in loudspeaker and superb quality in head phone.
Disadvantages:
1.Slight slow.
2.240x240. i.e., it is very difficult to get games for this phone.
3.1200 MAh battery is not enough.
4.Navigation key is difficult to use.
Maintance:
Till date i've just spend to buy a battery(not original). In India i'm unable to find a service center so i've buyed duplicate.

The language is in Windows Mobile and has to be reinstalled.
