NEVER EVER buy this phone. 6101 looks fancy but nothing is what it seems. The sound level of the phone speaker is very very low. You never understand anything in a crowded place or cafe. And also the sound level of the earphone is too low while listening the radio. This is a real design mistake. I will not trust nokia anymore. If you read the other reviews, you can see the other people complain about this. So what is a phone for? talking.. But you can't talk with this phone. Trust me and don't spend your money on this crappy machine.
This phone's design is great. I love it. I received this phone a few days ago and only have two problems with it:
1. There is a delay after pressing the menu key
2. When you clase the flip, all applications do not stop
Add Bluetooth and a bigger memory and you will have the perfect cell.
Very good phone! Maybe there should be some more features as bluetooth for aexample. Now I`v been using my 6101 for almost two months and there haven`t been any problems at all. In my opinion handsfree works quite good and I use it a lot.
this phone sucks big time..... horrible reception, crappy camera. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!
I had a look at this phone when I was in the market - I have had Nokias before, which I have alway rated highly, but in my humble opinion this phone looks and feels cheap and nasty. The graphics are ordinary and the external aerial is tacky.
I just wanted to know how the handsfree sounds. does it really work? because most of them are not really useful...
can i use MIDI-based polyphonic,
NB-AMR and WB-AMR (True Tones) audio clips as message alert tone??
I think it is a great phone one nokia built I have not had a single problem the sound is great and so is the rest of the features only wish it was bluetooth
it this phone a good choice, how long is the voice recording and video taking. and is the video taking show a clear picture and are the pictures taking clear. Please email me back soon
I bought this phone for $ 150 and I am loving it! Best Phone i've ever had!
I bought a 6101 recently, had to buy the black one , bcos white was not available. it looks good, but the build quality is not upto mark, . The navigation keys sound hollow. also the sound on the phone is not great..need to strain to listen in heavy traffic,or have use the ear phones. The Loudspeaker is good for handsfree operation..so are the large keys ..(i bought this phone for the keys..my thumb feels much better now , even after all the sms I send..my previous phone was t-100 from SE,which had small keys). Camera and main display are better compared to previous nokias(forget about the quality of the mini display on the front panel..its for displaying the caller id)..but not as good as sony ericsson..The reception is also great ..thanks to the external antenna..The phone stands out in the crowd ..due to its unique design.."good looking clamshell from Nokia..that too with an antenna"...its a hit in my office..
The phone design typical SE Asian..may be made with these markets in mind..reminds me of the phones in Japan..the camera position on the front panel is typical Japanese..they shoot self potraits and mail it ..
Buy it if you want a clamshell nokia..with great reception (thanks to the antenna)..the other features are all commomplace..for me its my first Nokia..I am not complaining either......Ramu Nair
I love the phone. Easy to read menu of who you want to call.Nice size numbers to dial.
To one who asked about radio. Headphones have to be plugged in then go to radio. Let headset plugged in and You can turn on speaker phone to hear. Also you can still recieve calls it will shut off radio and you answer phone.
Now Con for me.Cannot assign different ring tones to different people . Only able to assign them to groups.
Hey guys for anyonethinking about buying this it is a bad idea! Bat life blows!!
hope it has blutooth,that is the only features lacking.. =( and have a sufficient phone memory..
if u want to donat a phone email me.. =)
Maybe I am going to buy this phone, but I am So confused because I don't know if the speakerphone is good to hear the radio or talk. This is very important to me, because I dream about a clamshell phone how I can hear the radio with the speakerphone clearly.
Something reponse me here or to my mail.
Nice phone. Whats different between the Nokia 6101 and 6102? I'm a bit confused on this. Thankyou, Jamie
Ignore the question below. The text was too small,the volume from the ear-piece and speaker-phone was too low and the screen was too small.Soooo I returned it and got another Motorola V551 like mine.......Thanks anyway.......
Hi...Someone posted you can "hang up" when using the speaker-phone on the 6101 by using the camera button (button above infrared window).What's the trick, I can't get my wifes to work????Thanks
