Thank you, "onlythin" .... I forgot to mention the terrible heat up during conversation!
Btw Alex, the new Moto V9 in black color(just came out) is also a good chioce.
Do not listen to those comments below, cause they are quite misleading!!!
I use a phone(any phone) basically for making & receiving calls.
The look of the 6500C is nice(my opinion) & the quality of the casing is good(the metal part), the lower part of the phone with the shiny plastic is prone to small scratches!
-The screen & fonts are on the small side.
-Reception not the strongest(but acceptable).
-Long standby time BUT very short talk time(less than 1hr 30mins.) of continues conversations!
-Cannot/donnot even show call time/duration during a call(will show only after the call is finished).....that is crazy or stupid!!!
-Slippery to hold.
-Low quality 2MP camera.....the color is blue & the picture quality thumbs down.
-No video calling function.
-Ring volume loud.
-Sound quality good.
-Handsfree speaker quality excellent.
My advise for you is to pay a little more & get yourself a Sonyericsson W910i(big screen, light weight, long standby & talk time, easy to use, not to mention a lot more function.
My collection of phones(I still have them with me):- Nokia 8800, Nokia 6500C, Moto A1200, Moto k1 & K3, SE W880, SE T650i, SE W910i, LG Prada & a Vertu constellation.
Hope that my pick/suggestion can be helpful to you! Gook luck...
i am very mazy some one sey is very good others sey very bad?
buy it or no.
pleas answer to me.thanks
A bad development I must say:
Further to the review that I posted a few days down below - I am sorry to say that my phone has stopped working.
It seems that the phone is part of the defect "charging problem" batch - so if you drain your batter till it's totally empty- the phone won't charge again.
I just discovered it yesterday and today I brought my 6500C back to the shop.
They should give me a new phone in a few days.
Very poor sound quality, sounds very tinny - ring tones are quite and no radio.
Are there any micro USB -> 3.5mm converters? No, such a thing, of course, is not included in the package.
d headphone is connected thru usb?
do v get a converter along wid d phone or gotta purchase seperately??
bp27, yes, the external speaker is quite loud and you can connect a headset to the USB port, like everything else.
i would like to know if der is a port for headset connection n is d external speaker loud enough for music player...
Marqyza, what are you talking about? Of course not, it's not more than 2 hours.
I have had (and still have some) the N95,N73,6300,6230i,K610i,K800i,Samsung P300, Samsung D900, many (at least 5) HTC smartphones etc... let's say that I have had many many many phones. It's kind of a crazy gadget lovers hobby of mine.
The 6500 Classic: this is a very nice phone, looks great and works really well, have used it to call, sms, mms , browse the web,email, bluetooth with my carkit, bluetooth with a headset,BT sync with PC, speakerphone etc... no problems so far.
I did have an issue with the phone not syncing with Outlook contacts - but this was solved by updating the pc software and the 6500 firmware. No problems now.
All in all a great little phone which by definition is not a "camera phone" per se - yeah sure the N95 and N73 take much much better photos - and yeah the N95 also has a built in GPS - so what? this phone is by definition an all around slim day to day phone.
If you want a camera phone go for the N73, N95, K810i, K850i
Need a gps phone? - the N95
If you want a communicator with a dedicated keyboard go for the HTC or blackberry
If weight and thickness and size do not bother you then this is (the 6500 C) probably not the right phone for you as you can get the N73 for the same price (or lower) and it can do much more.
However - if you hate heavy and thick phones because they bother you and you want a nice, good looking slim sleek and lite phone, easy to use, friendly, for calls, sms's the odd email or web browsing (has 3G) and with a good bluetooth connection - then the Nokia 6500 classic might be your phone.
Pros: Slim, lite, good looking, easy to use, latest Nokia S40 OS (5th revision), has most of the features any phone would have such as calls, sms, mms, 3G UMTS, email, HTML web, bluetooth, speakerphone, good looking display, camera with flash
Cons: Camera is not great - it's not terrible but for sure not comparable to N73 or N95. No up down volume rocker switch (you control volume with the up/down joystick), no blinking led (no leds at all) - so you don't know if the phone is on or off, new nokia charging plug so car charger and older chargers won't fit - a real bummer, battery life not amazing (will last you a day or max two) and No video calls (not that I have ever done video calls on my other phones - apart from testing and seeing that it actually works).
i love this phone...... all the peeps goin on about the camera.... if i wanna take pics i use my digial camera
Well, the sufficiency of 1GB on this phone is subjective. Bottom line, for those of you who just need to change your wallpapers and music every now and then, and want a sleek "classic" looking phone, this is for you.
However, if you plan on buying a "lifestyle" phone, one that can do pretty much everything, this aint for you. This is a no-frills phone that trades features for size.
