any idea how to turn off the camera shutter sound? changed profile to silent mode, the sound is still there... :(
Used it for 3 weeks. A great phone indeed.
MP3 / Radio Quality: 9/10
Need to use external earphones with 2.5mm converter to get good quality sound) Use the Jazz equalizer for best effect.
A mono loudspeaker, its quite loud but not that clear compared to Nokia 6233.
Camera Quality: 10/10
Best camera phone I have ever used. Photos turned out excellent when viewed on PC. Xenon flash is very good for nearby objects in night condition.
Video Quality: 9/10
Ability to record VGA videos in 30fps. Videos turn out excellent but a little bit shaky even with stabilization turned on.
Call Quality: 10/10
No problems encountered here
GPS Quality: 6/10
Occassionally, even with full GPS signal received, your position can't be tracked on the map and Nokia Maps has to be restarted. Took 5-10 minutes for GPS lock (without A-GPS). 6110 navigator's route66 is much better as it has free turn-by-turn voice navigation
Battery Life: 7/10
Lasted 2 days with music player, gps and calls. Not bad for 900mAh battery. I heard that S60 3rd edition FP2 has internal optimizations that consumes less battery.
It crashes once while taking a picture in landscape mode and another time while updating to firmware 3.23. But overall, stability is a no issue in this phone.
Opening and using applications can be quite laggy at times. But is a no big issue.
I want to buy a cell phone tell me which 1 one is good N82 YA 6220c. sound also?
Can some1 pls tell me if you can delete themes that you have put on your phone in the theme folder not on the memory card?.
Does it work with animated themes?
Does it have loud ringing & text alert?
Does it have full screen caller id pls?
Thanks would be very grateful, this will decide for me as to buy or not.
From what i read the phone doesn't have any significant bug, which is great. Nokia really is improving from a few years ago.
Navigation in Austalia cost about $100 per year. A 3 month free trial is included. Navigation regularily gives weird directions so will not be paying when trial is finished. Photo quality is excellent with or without flash. Only problem is opening lens cover is supposed to activate the camera program - on my phone it only does this once every 3 or 4 times - which is frustrating. Music player is good but only using the User Specified sound adjustments. All preset sounds eg rock, jazz etc are horrible. Screen marks very easily - so get some kind of cover quickly - Krussel make an excellent one which I haven't been able to get in aust yet. Have had phone for 6 weeks - will be returning soon to have the camera looked at
Battery life is bad if you actually use the features of the device. 900mah doesn't cut it sadly.
The 6220 jsut gets a new update:
Its a good phone compared to N82, all except a bit smaller LCD & no WiFi. If N82 keypad design something like N6220, all users will be happy & rush for N82 instead.
rajoo, 11 Aug 2008My own experience N82 better in term of battery life because at least can last for 18hrs and N... moreSorry bro.., ur exp base only on N82 not fair at all, u should test 6220c with ur exp too if u want to compare their battery life...
I am sure 6220c still better interms of battery lifes base on reviewer from mobile-review.com
The Nokia site actually says says micro sd only upto 4gb, not sure what it takes but just think about that before you buy an 8gig memory card for this phone.
Is the camera and video exactly the same, just as good as the N82? Any experience or knowledge on this? If so this is a superb phone because it is much smaller/less bulky than N82 or N95/96.
Classic design is dull in black, but nice in purple !
Still not available in my country though...
With its classic design, the black color is really dull, looking like any 50 $ phone. I will definitely buy the purple one when the phone will be available in my country.
Adit38, 11 Aug 2008Suprisingly..., this phone a bit better than N82 in terms of battery lifes although 6220c only... moreMy own experience N82 better in term of battery life because at least can last for 18hrs and Nokia 6220c can last for 10hrs only with average use.
I admired 2 this phone but the price stil 2 high n the materials as same as 3120c, 2 bad..
Suprisingly..., this phone a bit better than N82 in terms of battery lifes although 6220c only 900aAh and N82 1150mAh
Maybe because 6220c run at Symbian FP2

If u r not sure about this phone's keypad, try read at mobile-review:
I quote part of it:
"All buttons on the 6220 Classic are made of glossy plastic, and generally are pretty responsive and easy to use. First shipments of the Nokia 6220 Classic had some issues with their keypads, but luckily as of today all of them have been dealt with. But in case you stumble upon a defect, you should take your phone to a service center, where it will be repaired free of charge."
