I'll say again folks, the rubber strip is the thin peice of rubber below the screen and above the word nokia, that is used to open the slide, thus keeping pressure off the keypad and not scratching the keypad.
i had this phone for 2 weeks and i had to get rid of it because of that terible keypad , and it was making a funny noise every time i pressed it. but still it's a good phone...
I was out looking for another brand of Nokia product when I came across Nokia6500. My constrain is that the manual is written in Chiness.
I will be glad if you can help by sending the password that comes with the phone.
If not Nokia it can never be Nokia.
Looking forward to read from you.
6500 slide: (VGA) 640x480 at 15fps
N73: (QVGA) 320x240 at 15fps
important difference in N73 against 6500 slide
as regards the design:
6500slide is way more cooler than N73. 6500 slide is a slide form factor in full metal case! gives it an impression of being an expensive phone!
as regards the screen:
you wont notice the difference much on N73 and 6500 slide.
as regards the interface:
6500 is faster because it is not a smartphone. It is more stable than N73 (more stable but still has few flaws just like any other phone)
N73 hangs more, takes time to process, but u can install 3rd party applications
quality of games in both is the same
if you want a phone with less hassle and more reliable, go for 6500 slide. If you want a multimedia phone with more additional software option (like microsoft word), go for N73.
camera of N73 vs 6500 slide:
i suspect that N73 has a noise reduction software thats why it is capable of taking pictures with less noise. However, it would also mean loss of details. In fact, shots taken in low light condition gives it an impression of being painted by water color, it reduces the noise too much at times!
as regards 6500 slide. shots taken with sufficient light is the same with N73, the difference can be noticed in pictures taken in low light condition. 6500 slide shows a lot more noise than N73 but is more detailed. at first you might say 6500 slide pictures taken during the night is horrible! HOWEVER, with a simple noise reduction on PC, it is actually waaay better than N73 because of the details taken by 6500 slide.
i dont know if its proper to promote the software here, just google it!
if you want to take picture and print after, go for n73. if you want to take picture and save details for editing, go for 6500 slide.
6500 has tv out
i have nokia 6500s since a week but there's something with the battery!i have to charge it every day and it took just 20 min and it gives that is fully charged.
did any of u had that problem before??pls i need an answer to know what to do?thanks!
The rubber strip is the thing you push on to open the slide, its located just below the screen, please be aware that pushing on any other part of the phone (particulary the lower part of the phone)may scratch the keypad.
Hi all having had the 6500s for around 3 months now, I haven't discovered any significant problems, quite simply its the best phone i've ever owned, however I did install new firmware as soon as I got it, so maybe thats why none of the problems encountered by other users have manifested themselves.
what is a rubber strip? is it incorporated in the phone already or do i have to purchase it separately? thanks.
hi all.. i have planned to buy Nokia 6500 S.. can i go ahead.. do u find any fault with this phone.. if this piece has prob, tel me some alternative mobile...
