So the batteries life span is not that long. Does anyone have any issues with the phone running out of power to often? Thats really my only concern with this phone otherwise its seriously a really nice phone. Also when you use the flash does it drain the batteries power a lot?
Srinav, 30 Jun 2008Shut up!! The 6220c CAN actually record in VGA at 30 frames per second. You are all saying wro... moreYou are the one who's got it wrong. Many times in many websites was it mentioned that it's the TIOMAP 2430 processor that enables N93, N93i, N95, N95 8GB, N82, E90 to record videos in VGA at 30fps. I'm just wondering how come can 6220c record in such frame rate but N78 can't! Maybe you don't know the answer either so better keep silent!
Michael, 30 Jun 2008Thanks for that information pinoy if you see the price I like to know that tooIt's $728 w/o contract at Nokia concept stores otherwise it's much cheaper with 2 yr subsciption contract and $200 trade in, abt $198.
Shut up!! The 6220c CAN actually record in VGA at 30 frames per second. You are all saying wrong! The processor and the RAM have nothing to do with the video recording capabilities my God! All of those abovementioned prospects have nothing to do with the video recording. So whether a Freescale ARM11 369 MHz single chip processor or a TI OMAP 332 MHz dual core processor, both of these things cannot be related with the phone's recording capabilities as it is clearly based on the internal hardware support/microelectronics of the phone that happens to be DEFINITELY NOT the processor! God! Give me a break!
So what colour is available now ? Is the purple one really as terrible as in the picture or does it look nice in reality ?
pinoy, 29 Jun 2008It's available in sunny singaporeThanks for that information pinoy if you see the price I like to know that too

omer, 29 Jun 2008because, it got 128mb ram instead of 96 mb of N78. And this phone got 5mp cam instead of 3.2 m... moreAre you okay? The old N93 has 3.2mp camera and only 64mb RAM but it records video in VGA at 30fps as well. The megapixel nor the RAM has nothing to do with video recording frame rate. It's processor related thing. 6220c doesn't have the same expensive processor of N93/i N95/8GB N82 because 6220c is a cheap solution intended for mass market. It only has the same processor of N78 N81 8GB N76 5700 6120c. And those phones cannot record video in VGA at 30fps no matter what. So how come 6220c can? I'm sure the megapixel count and RAM have nothing to do with it.
Super Baby, 29 Jun 2008Actually N78,N82,N95,6220C have the same processor ARM11 (source:forum Nokia) The N78 and 6... moreAbsolutely untrue! N78 has the Freescale processor running at 369mhz. It's a single chip processor. That's why it cannot record videos at 30fps because its processor can't handle that. N82 N93/i N95/8GB are the ones with TIOMAP 2430 dual processor running at 332mhz that has 3D graphics engine and the capability to record video at 30fps. Now it's all mess up with 6220c. Nokia will never put the expensive TIOMAP 2430 on a very cheap solution like 6220c. So how come it can record video at such frame rate? I don't think anybody has a clear idea.
Actually N78,N82,N95,6220C have the same processor ARM11 (source:forum Nokia)
The N78 and 6220C run at 369 Mhz, when N82 and N95 run slower at 332 Mhz (they have graphic accelerator, but it is of no use for recording video, just for the games)
So no surprise video is great with 6220C, but don't know why N78 cannot do it. Maybe something to do with only 3.2 Mp instead of 5Mp ?
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2008Nokia 6220 classic is indeed a feature-rich phone. But you know, looks still matters. And this... morebecause, it got 128mb ram instead of 96 mb of N78. And this phone got 5mp cam instead of 3.2 megapixels of n78.and it got better looks than flop N81 like design.
I currently have N95 8gb.and will get this whenever its available
Nokia 6220 classic is indeed a feature-rich phone. But you know, looks still matters. And this 6220 classic is one of the ugliest phones I've ever seen. It's just too bad. The looks of this phone does not rhyme with its features. And one more thing. How come it records video in VGA 30fps when it has the Freescale processor running at 369mhz just like that of N78? Weird..
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2008if the flash below the lens disturbs you just rotate the camera 180 degrees whats the differenceIf rotate 180 deg, then shoot button will be at bottom left....u bottom left handed....hahaha
Iam trying to get Garmin mobile working on it but it wont any idea about that ? even Nokia support dosen't know :(
a litle review:
- excellent sound with headset (i have a sennheiser cx300);
- excellent sound with spekers (very clear);
- the processor 369 hrz is very good and fast (like 6120c);
- the keypad is very good ( elipsed);
- he FP2 is excellent;
i don't found anything bad.
gps: i don't try, so...
aatu, 27 Jun 2008I'm not quite sure what you mean about soft/hard. I haven't ever held 6120 classic, so I don't... morewhat i mean in soft or hard keypad is, when you press the keypads is it soft touch or you have to press it well before it works? some nokia phones have very nice keypads like the old nokia 6233.
A friend of mine works for a UK phone company, he says they are receiving their first shipment of these phones on Monday.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2008go 4 lg secret ofcourseI've had a look at the Lg web site to see how to download softwares and upgrade the firmware. What a mess, seems like their web site is quite prehistoric compared to Nokia's. That's why i'd stick to NOKIA, so easy to upgrade your phone.
