Only Prob I've noticed with this handset so far, is that you cannot change the text size, searched the phone for ages for the setting. And the text size is ridiculously small, very inconvenient for the short sighted or the elderly.
The 6700 slide has launched in Pune. I am ordering it in a day or two. This phone is overall a decent one, except for the 3.5 mm audio jack & worth the price.
I shall post reviews once I own the phone!
plz i luv zat phone,so if u buy it and foundany defect,plzzzzzzzzzz let me know...........thnx
Since the iphone and it's success with it's app's store, nokia have tried with ovi to jump on the band waggon. Symbian is a little outdated, compared to say android. Where are your live updated screen feeds for weather etc on this phone? Nokia would have been better to keep s40 as even with this symbian release it's still too slow! The processor power is just not matched I feel, thats the problem. Having an updated s40 would be equal to having windows 7 on a netbook instead of vista. This phone should have s40 period!
I am sure this handset will sell, but for value for money, if you don't mind a touch screen from nokia in a similar UK based price range is the 5230, this cut down 5800, simply is I feel the best of the best deal going, I paid just 75 uk pounds, and it has to be said bar the wi-fi and not stereo speakers it is an updated 5800, love the choice of rear covers included, it simply rocks dude!
On the subject of camera's, I still use my k800i or viewty, yes their have been better since, mainly from SE or the korean manufacturers, but the xenon flash does the job in low light, don't like led. Nokia even with the n series, and this seems like a cut down n95, never seem good as camera phones, why not?
nokia, 21 Apr 2010mr "Tictactaylor" are you nutts ?? this 6700 slide have a 5mp camera.. not a 3mp...h... moreFyi On par with means only equal to, so yes it's 5mp but performs in reality in my opinion only like a 3mp. Get the drift buddy?
It is a shame that before I was branded nuts in my opinion of this handset they did not fully read my account! I stated that the camera to me seemed on par with a 3mp, I STILL hold that view, ditto d pad is not the best example, yes it's a slide figured that out quite quickly, strangely!
everything about this model is great but alas the idiots at nokia forgot to give 3.5mm audio jack which would have been a great luxury considering the price range of this handset.
mr "Tictactaylor" are you nutts ?? this 6700 slide have a 5mp camera.. not a 3mp...hearing you we all can figure out what mobile you have bought...can you read the specs ?? its clearly writen that its a 5mp...so keep checking your phone before commenting on it...mr dumb..

hey guys this is the best n ultimate mobile with almost great features with affordable price in inida so yru waiting for go n get it!
I have recently purchased this phone just basically to review and evaluate it's performance, it's my hobby. Firstly, the screen is excellent but the camera seems more on par with only a 3mp, not good in poor light conditions. The images are grainy in low light, no matter what setting used. The audio is good through speakers, but through headphones lacks amplitude, maybe the headphones have internal attenuation to limit db level, fear of being sued for ear damage? The d-pad seems totally unresponsive at times, it seems to decide for itself what to do. The build quality, minus d-pad which seems poor is excellent. The use of Symbian still seems to make the phone slow, and the phone itself is very chunky. It's the d-pad thats seems the let down and as most nokia's are good for texting and quality keypads this one is not too good. No gps or wi-fi and a low res screen for today's needs. Still unsure the target market for this phone? Not exceptionally good at music video photo or texting only average.
Dear Gsm Arena,
Can you please do a review on this phone, as I am waiting eagerly to buy it, but first I need to see the cons and pros of this phone. When I want to buy a new phone I always come to gsm arena to see the reviews/specifications and opinions to see if the phone is worth or not to buy.
I thank you for all the effort you put into making reviews and congratulate you for creating this website as I think is the BEST out there!
Please I realy want a review on Nokia 6700 slide, and if you value the viewers that come here to browse phones do a review soon on this phone.
Thank you and have a nice day,
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2010i m also in the same situation and i decided to buy sony ericson yari bcoz its design is more ... moreI suggest you not to buy yari, because i' already buy that phone 2 months before. Honestly, i'm very disapointed bout that crappy phone. in think its a fail product. when u store your file too much in the memory it will become lag, sometimes it will hang. except the music player, all the features are crap. thats why i rather sell my yari and change it with other phones.
