Is this review for real? It can't be recommended because of the price? What about those who get it free on a contract?
It seems bizarre to praise the phones features throughout 5 pages of the review (obviously not the camera part) yet give such a strange conclusion at the end of the review. GSMArena didn't not recommend the 8800 or 8600 because of its price, so why start now? Baffling.
The Nokia 6300 is a much better phone in my opinion. The 6300 Looks nicer, very much the same features (and better features in some cases) and can accommodate more memory than the 6500.
Camera performance is expected to be mediocre just like W880, however there is one phone that can take pictures even alot better than the current 9.4mm phones, that's the Samsung F300. and that real disappointment was that both 6300 and 6500 classics do not have camera button on the right side while SE W880 could even have it :(
another criticism would be the fact that it doesn't use the standard non-os browsers used in samsung and SE phones: the NetFront 3.4 rendering pages with opera was good but mediocre compared to the netfront used in K850 and U700 one.
to sum it up, this was intended to be the cheaper version of the 8600 luna targeting slim fashion market :(
