I'll be the first to say this (guess it's just my imagination), but this phone's exterior front side oddly resembles an Audi grille, as do most of Nokia's latest phones in this design language. I'm sure this wasn't intended, but I love it :p Who agreeds with me on this one? It's a great phone. This is my next phone for sure :D upgrading from an 7610.
yeah ive been using the phone for almost a month already..ive been having problems with the soft touch paint on the side keys of my phone i think that is because of the wrist strap that is touch that part of my phone.. i have few scratches on the silver border on the key pad but its ok..
can anyone who has had the phone for an exteneded amount of time comment on ether the soft black paint coming off...and are you experincing any scratching on the main lcd....do the buttons rest on the main lcd?
also please include how long you have been using the phone. Thanks
It is a nice phone but definitely not a replacement to the 6230b as some have suggested. The display is beautiful indoors but outdoors is completly worthless. UI is fast but not instant as 6230b. Keypad is large and comfortable.
i jus got tis phone.. how can i use input for sms?? means type sms in chinese. but my phone language is in english
I just bought a 6131 and there is something wrong with the colors! It doesn't seem right! Everything appears green. Has anyone who owns a 6131 noticed this? Problem persists even when outdoors. Worse, it's so dark indoors!
I replaced my 6101 and for me the 6101 has a clearer screen and takes better pictures. Sad.
can anyone please tell me what is 'Presence enhanced contacts'? I'll appriciate!
What do you prefer from a handset? Give us your priority.
It's better that you also read the opinion in every handset that you have wrote.
Every phone has its plus and neg points.
This was the phone, which convinced me switching to Nokia. I like it. Nice features. First of all I've upgrade it with micro sd card. The only thing I find annoying are those scratches on keyboard which became after a month in my pocket.
I've bought this phone few months ago and it is still perfect. The opening mechanism still works like the day I bought it and it feels great. The screen is close to perfection, even if it doesnt have some kind of protection, I never had a problem with it.
The battery lasts 4 days with moderate use (calls, sms, camera, etc).
The sound is amazing.
It's such a stylist phone, very well built and designed.
I love it!
its seems to be an amazing set up with everything thats wanted in a phone.
But I'm really iffy about the flip mechanism, ive noticed it has a tendancy to catch and I think it will be something that will wear out with use.
I want to change of phone. And I still do not know which one to choose. Nokia 6131 or Samsung D600? I do prefer a clamshell but the D600 seems to be less fragile.
Moreover It has a better camera (but i don't care!) and one can read word and pdf file (this is more important).
Do you think i will be able to keep a 6131 a long time? I mean, normally, if thing go the usual way.
Not having a protection for the screen is to me a very bad sign. It says: huuu... I want to sell my phone and i don't care quality!
I've tested it for 2 months the only think i find annoying about it is that the memory is small for the amount of features it have. great camera, good big numbers for us big fingered people txting is a dream - good phone as an upgrade from the 6230 family
I really love this phone! But I have a couple of questions if anyone can answer...
I've had it a couple of months and it always automatically locked the keypad after a few secs of not being used...this function has stopped and I liked it. Anyone know how I may have turned it off, or how I can turn it on again!
My battery lasts no time at all and I'm not a constant chatterer...what's your experience?
would be great to hear
Around the price from 6131 you have also alternative with SE phones:
for music : W550(1,3 Mpx cam)/W700(2 Mpx)
for camera : K750i (especially red)
for work : Z550(1,3 Mpx cam) or K610im(2 Mpx cam+3G)
Try to liik at this beside of course 6233/6234.
i didnt find 6131 is a good mobile. it got so many scraches when the upper part of the cell rest. because its rubber pad are very small so when u close it , it make a noise becuase of small pad and got scrach on it
Man i have the phone... the flip mechanism is ok... the only thing is that this phone has 2 main drawbacks : the camera (at night and artificial light and the battery) since u are a 6230i owner u might want to take a closer look at the 6233 (it got my attention)
The 6131 doesn't have a card included while the 6233 has a 64 mb microSD included.... both work on the same platform but in my opinion the 6233 is better: 2mp camera, it has 3G and my 6131 can't send or receive data from a motorola device...
