great display,very awesome user interface n also a good key pad.. camera is mind blowing, got purple one yesterday n em luvin it..
What a wounderful phone! very light weigh, very good screen, a lot of specifications, very good GPS. recommended.
A great phone. Just two bugs: A rickety keypad and impossible rear cover re-insertion after SIM/battery change. It has just about everything that a non-QWERTY smart phone is expected to have at an affordable price. My word, just buy it without any reservation.
I have had this phone for some mounths now and I have to say it's a great headseat! The only thing I would say is missing is WiFi but that's not such a big isue. I have had a lot of mobile phones before (including the N95), so I know my way aorund and this is bay far the best one I've ever owned. Anyone who is considering in buying the Nokia 6220c, I say go for it!Great camera, great os, great UI, solid keys, great desing (but that just me)...
P.S. - It takes up to 8 Gb of memory
16 gb Memory card, 28 Sep 2008May i use a 16 gb memory card in it? is it able to handle it?Can 6220classic contain 16gb
By the way, I'm looking at the 6220C's keypad and I don't see the 4-way directional arrow shortcut key and pencil editing key, just the Symbian menu shortcut key and the C clear key. The review does not point this out and doen't say how it impacts the usability of this phone, since all the other Symbian OS phones have this 4 shortcut keys as part of the standard keypad layout.
What is the feedback from actual owners of this model? Do use miss the 4-way arrow key and the pencil key? Thanks in advance. I'm seriously considering getting this model instead of a similar-spec'ed N-Series.
Again, I reiterate the same question I posed in the comments section of the N79 & N6220 reviews: What is the point of getting an N-Series if all the features are now also available in the supposedly lower-end non-N-series lineup??? Somebody said "better build quality" & "Wi-Fi/WLAN support", but the former reason is not important since all phones would eventually become obsolete in a few years, and most of the N-series & E-series also have plastic shells (just w/ metallic-colored paint) and/or cheap, unergonomic keypads. The "Wi-Fi" argument is also now invalid with the early '09 release of this new N6260 slider, which just proves that it's the N6xxx line that is consistently the most bang-for-the-buck lineup in the whole Nokia catalog. And this phone doesn't even run on the newest Symbian v9.3 OS and the latest Series60 v.3, Feature Pack 2 UI.
In short, the N-Series should be revamped with new, killer features unavailable in the lower lines and/or lower its pricing!
Is there still a point in getting an N-Series now? It used to be there were exclusive features in the N-Series that weren't available in the regular Nokia line, but today, almost all the latest features, the OS, and the UI can be found in non-N-series phones. Case in point: the N6220. A-GPS, Symbian v9.3 OS, Series60 v3 Feature Pack 2 UI, 16.7M color TFT screen, very usable camera, quad-band GSM, 3G w/ HSDPA, big RAM & expandable user memory, fast ARM CPU, etc. the only thing lacking is Wi-Fi, but that's not a deal-breaker for many people. N6220 is more feature-complete than most of the older & mid-range N-series phones that are still being sold today!
I think Nokia made a big mistake in doing that, they should have clearly delineated the two line-ups with some killer features that aren''t available in the lower line. Otherwise, I would just wait a year or less to get the same features in the newest N-Series to trickle down to the N6xxx line.
I mean why bother getting an N70ME, N73ME, N77, N80, N90, N91, N93i, etc., if there is such a thing as an N6220 available today? Can anyone give a decent answer?
I just bought the phone today. It boasts excellent features no doubt but the keypad is terrible and not to mention the design. But on the overall i am pleased with thepurchase. The GPS receiver is marvellous and well i'm still trying to figure out a lot of things.
Until then . . . .Heita

Been using this phone for a few months now and it rocks.
UI is smooth and have had no hassles. The gps works great specially with Garmin software.
Camera is great and flash has some potent power.
Over all this is my perfect phone as it has huge amounts of power with a very small size factor.
I love this phone.
i think nokia are just creating something for those people who can't afford to buy nSeries. 6220c belongs to this group. lets just respect nokias ideas.
May i use a 16 gb memory card in it? is it able to handle it?
CSingh, 19 Sep 20088th!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway this phone is ok i dont see why anyone would buy this over an n82 though...bcoz if they buy this 1 over N82 they save up to 150 euros , but mine N82 is really worth buying .
Great feature list let down by poor quality control. Keypad falls off and the software on mine is dodgy and shuts down the phone unexpectedly, and it struggles to maintin reception. Some carriers here in Aust won't even sell it!
Bought one just a few days back.... believe me its an excellent phone, with awesome picture quality. I clicked some pics in pitch dark and the xenon flash did the magic .....Superb picture quality, though video quality isn't that appreciable. For photo samples from the phone mail me at email@example.com
Yuck! Packaging good features at a low price and sacrificing looks & durability. Typical Nokia.
Yeah, the first 6220s availalbe had some really bad keypads, still do somehow, it just looks somehow cheap, the tactiles of it arent the smoothest I have experienced and somehow they tend to produce a clicking sound all too often while pressing them. Not the best when it comes to that. But again, 5MP with Xenon for that price. Hmmm... Would have been a great phone, shall the quality of its cover and keypads been a bit better.
why is it that GPS needed only by those who could afford Nseries? not really, for that price, it would make sense for someone to buy and have some fun geotagging photos and videos for uploads on the internet.
