Have had the 6290 now for 3 weeks and can say that there are two main advantages over my previous phone (N80) #1 The battery lasts about a day longer and #2 The phone is MUCH quicker then the N80.
is this available in the philppines???? its nicer than the other fliptop!!!
Does anyone know how to turn off the shutter sound for the camera on this phone? I read about disabling warning tones, but that doesn't work. I still get the shutter sound.
Also is there a way to set the flash not to always default to automatic mode (I'd rather have it default to off)?
Is this phone faster than N70 or N73????
Hows the Music Player...Normal or??
Anybody knows here..????
This is the next step up from the 6126, 6131, and 6133. Not bad at all.
Im from holland, and its not coming out here. However i can get a simlockfree one in germany, with german simbian. Is it easy to put a dutch symbian on it??
Wow, 6290 did all that for you. I guess it's not a question of whether or not I should get it anymore but how many of it I should get... ;)
On a more serious note, obviously I meant the style and the coolness factor.
Q: How can I make a picture that will be as big as the screen.. I mean all the screen..
I tried all the resolutions but it won't take up all the screen .. can anyone help me ?
Guys, do you think is at all a sexy mobile. We know the ergonomics are great. We know the fuctions are great. We know the UI is fast. We know the camera is mediocre. We know the speakers are better than avarage. But what about the sex appeal? For example, do you think mobile could compete with the Samsung Ultra Editions? I'm on the verge of buying this mobile but the sex appeal (and maybe the camera) is holding me back a bit.
Just seen this phone at phoneboxdirect on a 12 month vodafone contract at £35 per month with 500 mins and 250 txts per month. However what makes this special (or so I hope!!) is that it says that you get £385 cashback (£77 paid after 4,6,8,10,12 months)!!!!!!!! This means after 12 months you'll have only paid £35 line rental! This has got to be a con surely, or do they NOT let u keep the phone if you decide not to renew the contract??? If they let you keep it like most contracts then it's a bloody bargain!! Anyone have any info about this?
just got mind from popularelect.com phone is nice, this is the phone i been waiting for
I have tested this phone the speakers are better than Nokia N73 but lags behind Nokia 6233 (for me 6233 have still better speakers) but still better than any clamshell phone audio is good screen is clear camera not good as SE over all good phone at its cost in a unique package
Guyz, I said that the EXTERNAL speakers are better than the 6233! They are not louder, but they produce a little more bass which makes them more "hi-fi".
I ran the jbenchmark ACE test twice. The first time it returned a processor speed of 429Mhz and the second time it was 445Mhz! This is outstanding!
The camera is a plain Nokia 2MP one, but the result is slightly more grainy as compared to the 6233/6288 or the N70/71. It is most probably a software matter that they could/should improve in the next firmware update.
Battery life is 2 days with quite a bit of use.
The phone is all plastic and the front is painted exactly like the keypad of the 6233. The back is painted with the rubbery paint of the rear of the 6233/6131. The hinge of the flip is SUPER solid. No tolerance whatsoever.
The screen is a beautiful 240X320 pixel one, but it is not ultra-bright. Very decent though.
Really, the only shortcomings is the conservative looks and the grainy-mainly-at-night camera.
I cannot resist pointng out the swiftness of the interface once again!
The Greek-speaking readers can read lots of comments (including mine) regarding this device at myphone.gr
Tested this mobile today and loved the feel and ergonomics of it. WAY BETTER than those of 7390. I even like the looks better (black). If only Nokia had made this mobile 3-5mm thinner and equipped it with a better camera, 6290 would be a no-brainer. Right now, I'm trying to decide between it and Samsung U600 (pros: great camera, thin, cool looks, cons: ergonomis (keypad), thin (too thin?)).
battery tests are done at perfect operating temperature and conditions. You can ussually easily cut 25% off simply because conditions aren never as ideal as during the testing. Not to mention everyday use
