To be honest even if it's only slightly better than the 6610i I will purchase it.
The design did attract me to it & the new screen & better camera quality (even though not much better but improvement over 6610i)is enought to sway me as I only really use mine for calls, texting & th eodd picture taking.
One final question, with the 6610i the images taken had a kind of "fish eye" lens so any straight lines on the picture would curve inwards, doe sthis happen on the 6101?
>> The camera of the Nokia 6101 is slightly better than the Nokia 3200 (from CIF to VGA-quality). But still you can't zoom before taking a picture. Only afterwards.
>> The Nokia 6610i quite a good mobile, the 6101 doesn't really "upgrade" your old 6610i, but the pro's of taking the 6101 over your old 6610i are:
- bigger & better screen;
- better polyphonic sounds (mp3 = bad);
- camera is also slightly better (CIF to VGA-quality);
So if you like the 6101 design (which is incomparable with the 6610i), you can switch over to that one. The phone isn't really that expensive, a bit comparable with the release of the 6610i back then.
>> The standby time depends on how often you make calls, listen to radio, etc. ofcourse; but I ussually charge my phone every 3 days.
Hi, I'm considering updating from my Nokia 3200 to the Nokia 6101 - can anyone tell me if the camera is any better?? and can you zoom before you take the pic?? the 3200 couldnt, you could only zoom after you took the photo. Any help would be appreciated, thanks
how many hours it stands in Stand-by, i want to know, pls tell me someone
with this website.
can you buy the phone right out, or do you have to buy it on a plan?
how much is it? and when is it avaliable?
most of all is this website safe?, it doesnt seem all the safe
To Mark or whoever else has this phone.
Is it better than the Nokia 6610i (which is my current phone) & I'm not about just looks, in general
The cheapest I have seen is in Argos on o2 for £129.99 pay as you go but that is in white only, dearest over here: Carphone Warehouse, sim free £199.99.
However I'm sure Carphone Warehouse can do better deals that that :^D
So would you guys recommended it for someone who has an ageing 6610i (I have had the 6610i since July 2004 so it has served me well)
If you're at the shop to buy the Nokia 6101. Ask to see them both, before buying. I did and compared the black and white version at the counter.
My decision was eventually the black one. I'm sure if you put them next to each other, you can easily make a decision.
i advise u to get e black version. e black surface looks more elegant, tho fingerprints may be clearly visible on it dan on the white one..but u cn wipe e fingerprints away..
howeva for the white one, a salesperson said it wud turn yellowish aft some time, esp if it is in contact w oily fingers..u wudnt want ur hp2turn yellow ryt?
Im buying this fone for me b'day anf i think its one of the best looking fone ive ever seen! do u recomend this fone for me? im turnin 13 and iim a girl also black or silver i like th black better but the silver might be better so can sumone post bak!
Hi Toni - Yes you can buy the white 6101 in Australia - exclusively through BDigital. I'm buying one myself. Call the sales line on 13 33 44.
hey guys...my gf does bot her 6101..its black..i noe dere's talk abt visible fingerprints left behind on e black surface..but dose can be cleaned off..e person bhind e counter said for e white one, e white surface may turn yellowish aft some time(which most probably is irreversible..) Consider guys!
Nice post Mark.
It is true, ONLY the mp3's sound bad.
Radio, polyphonic ringtones are good!
I like the phone but there are certain sound problems, sound cracks often.Sound hearing volume is also low so it would say the simple nokia models like 3510i are excellent compared to all this new shit.
To whoever asked:
yes you can take a photo and place it as your wallpaper.
The battery is excellent.
Just want to clear up some things for the people who are having queries about the phone.
I've had my Nokia 6101 for a week exactly now. Do i still feel impressed by the phone - no.
Why? Purely because i'm just bored with the phone. I do get bored quite easily and i do like change so maybe its just me. However the phone has an awful lot going for it. It's great when the phone rings in public and people hear the traditional Nokia ringtone. When i whip the phone out people look and ownder what phone it is i have because its so unlike a Nokia. Clearly its impressive to the onlooker.
As someone else pointed out, i have yet to have software problems with the phone - no crashing no failures in any way. Very good!
Battery life is brilliant. Holds for days i haven't charged for 3 days - with use of radio and video recording and i have only dropped one bar.
Someone asked about the external screen - it shows the signal level, battery meter and time as well as the network name. And yes, you can assign any picture you have taken as a wallpaper for the intenal AND external display. Although most pictures dont look great set on the outside. (4096 colours anyone?)
Sturdy build etc looks great, semi-good features, but poor memory as EVERYONE has mentioned. I'm getting annoyed with people writng on this forum 'Nokia 6101, crap memory not getting it'. Well thats great news but we didn't really need to hear it. If your going to write something at least let it be constructive ok.
So to finish - this will probably be my last post - the Nokia 6101 is a goodlooking clamshell phone with rubbish memory, and bad pre-installed wallpapers. I have resulted in taking my own pictures for wallpapers because it looks much better. The menu style is rubbish compared to other handsets such as Samsung and video quality and sound isn't the best.
However this phone does make up for its downfalls with features such as radio, camera, video recording - though poor, external display, rather customisable and great looks. Thats the 6101 then. Thanks for reading. Mark.
based on all opinions, i realised that there are a number of bad comments on the speaker's quality. is it only for MP3 or even polyphonic?
another question is, will i be able to listen to my mp3s using the headset given?
Just saw it in white. Quite big, not as nice as i thought. Won't buy it,will wait for the 6111
For the price (australia $400) it is well priced, but it remains a pretty simple phone that just looks nice.
Good one Nokia just copy Motorola next time. Looks exactly like the V550! You'd think they come up with something ORIGINAL.
hey its sam again
im just wonderin cuz im gettin my new fone next week sometime and l wanted 2 no if u can take a photo and place it on ur wallpaper and then will it show on the little dispaly screen on front?????well l hope it can.whats on the little dispay screen aswell?well let me no plz
