well. you sold it and u got it back as a present. What goes around comes around! lolz!
You asking me why a Nokia heats up but a Motorola does not? That's like asking me why Vertu's are so ugly and expensive!
My problem is that I sold my 6500classic last week & I've got another one as a present from a business associate!
p.s. I still think that this is a good looking phone! It's not nice to sell a present(at least not in a short period) so I guess I'll hve to use it this time around!
Thanks for your feedback. I absolutely agree! But you have not answer to my other question as to why Moto phones do not encounter hugh heat up like Nokias'?!
Appreciate if any engineering expert around here to answer my question...
My Vertu is made from all metal & also made by Nokia; but why is the reception so strong???!!!
I believe that Nokia use plastic as the material for the back cover cause I suspect all metal will give an inferior reception.
I doubt if 16 million colors is the real cause of heat up problems with Nokia phones!
Panasonic first came out with 16 million colors for GSM market, but I do not remember having the same problem! **16 million colors was a big "WOW" for our GSM market at the time; but it was nothing new to the Japanese market!
What I'm trying to say is that Nokia phones(even 256 color ones) heat up more severely as compared to other brands. I can still recall when I had the 8850(only in black & white screen), it also generate a lot of annoying heat!
I'm not a Moto fan, but their phones(even slim phones) do not post any heat up problem for me even during extended conversations(ocassionally for up to 3 hrs.)
Nokia phone are more pron to heat build up because they utilize a 16 million resoloution. With that many colors, the phone is bound to get a little warm.
It shouldn't get hot though, if it is getting hot perhaps you have a defective model.
Does anybody know - will it ever be possible to install something like Fring on this mobile phone?
depite of anything this phone looks stunning especially the bronze colour.
Hello i really like the this cellphone
but why this Color is not avaiable in the UAE :(
Use PCSuite for uploading to phone. I compressed a bit of Prison Break to 3GP on the 6500 just to see - could only do standard res, quality wasn't particularly good.
Found a 'bug'. Parts of mp3's which are very quiet come out 'scratchy', if too quiet, the software cuts them. Could be just the Lame encoder, haven't tried a different one. Very annoying tho'. Phone won't be good for mp3's (from the Lame encoder at least). Don't know yet if it does mp4. It certainly does aac without problem, but still I don't want to have recode all my music to aac.
so is the bronze out now b/c someone's selling it on ebay...i thought it was scheduled ot release on the 28th of this month?!
the person selling has a really high rating, too...
i see the phone for first time today. I thoguht it is just okay. I do not like the bottoms since Nokia is attaching some steel on top of it make it not so easy to use. The color black quality make it cheap looking compair with Nokia 6300. But my Son love it and change his 6300 with 6500.
Bob, thanks for your opinion. I really can't wait for my 6500c to arrive! Should be next week. In the meanwhile, what software are you using for uploading video on this phone? What resolution and other specs seem to give the best movie quality?
Oh yes, for those interested in stability, my 6500 has been up for 6 days solid and put through it's paces. No lock ups or any other anomolies yet. Totally stable so far.
> I'm just pissed at Nokia for not providing the basic in a modern 3G phone(like a front camera, memory card or HSDPA)!
Yeah, I can certainly understand your frustration. At least they did something right with micro-usb. Let's hope SE see sense and stop trying to extort their customer base.
Hmmm, SE = Sony Extortion? ;)
To Bob (nxtj)
I think you have said everything that's needed to shut the feature-moaning geeks right up.
"I think Nokia have produced mostly cr@p for the past 4, maybe 5 years and I hope this phone is the sign of change."
I really couldn't agree more. They have been pumping out horrendous looking bricks now for the past 5 years, seemingly ignoring calls for slim aestethics for the sake for one more feature or one more megabyte - which has only made Nokia phones uglier and uglier and fatter and fatter (just look at the N95 - packed full of stuff the majority of users would never use and it is painfilly ugly).
I still say their last best phone (in terms of features vs performance vs size vs price vs (ultimately) looks) was the 6100. It has not been beaten.
The 6500 Classic blows the 6100 out of the water. And with the E51 on the horizon too, it looks like Nokia are finally beginning to crack it again. But a five year wait is a bit pathetic.
Also, batteries with large capacities will heat up. This is just their nature.
"Why did I got rid of it then? major reason because I found the font size are too small for comfort(just like the 8600 I had; which I sold on the 3rd day)"
Well, that is your dumba$$ fault for buying before you try. Shall I say it again? More money than sense...
"the back cover is not so well designed hence it's difficult to open"
Do you have the arms of a girl? Hold the sides of the battery cover and slide it down. It comes of pretty damn easy, unless your fingers holding the top half of the phone are resting on the top of the battery cover...
"(I change my SIM card quite often as I have to travel a lot); which is not convince for me at all!"
Surely this justifies owning more than one phone for the sake of convenience? And considering you purchase phones on a whim, I'm surprised you don't own half a mobile shop by now.
"I don't use much video calling but it's nice to know it's there when you need it, agree?"
Coming from someone who was making such an issue out of it, you were saying the 6500 Classic wasn't worth buying. Are you mental? Make your mind up.
8850 was real nice! It was the best at the time; together with a Sony phone(can't remember the model name). Heat up & weak signal strenth of my grey/green & gold color 8850 was a pain!....but then we had very limited choices!
Just don't understand why Nokia still didn't rectify heat up problem with all their phones!!! Most Motorola phones do not heat up(at least my palm/face/ear don't feel the heat); even for long period of conversations! I'm still using my Moto A1200, K1 & K3 & they are still working fine...I use them quite rough!
When I go out at night, I usually take my Prada phone with me. My Vertu is too heavy for the suit/pants pocket.
