Nokia 6275i, awesome phone
Reviewed on Thursday December 28, 2006 by lilpunk1302, Vancouver BC Canada
I've had this phone for 3 days now, I got it to replace my Nokia 2125i, and I have to say that it's awesome, the camera has a decent image sensor for pictures, but video seems lacking, but then again I haven't actually downloaded any video to my computer. The screen is HUGE compared with many phones (specifically the 2125i). Heres the whole run-down:
The screen on this phone is very high quality and is the perfect size for viewing pictures and video (youtube rips much?) but seems to outweigh the keypad, making the phone somewhat uncomfortable to hold (more on this later).
This phone is in a plastic casing with accent metal along the edges, the plastic comes in grey and black (I have the black) both varnished and shiny, possibly a little too shiny, its seems to attract fingerprints and dust, I am quite picky about this so I tend to have to wipe the phone against my clothes every 30 seconds or so, others might not be so picky.
I am somewhat disappointed by how the keys were designed on this phone, they are made of the same shiny plastic that the casing is made of, and I tend to find them somewhat hard to handle, even though there are grips that help, but still somewhat hard to handle. There are 3 side keys for the camera shutter control and zoom functions (more details later) but they are pretty hard to press and often blur the picture because of movement, so I am forced to use the center navigation key to take a picture. Back to the subject of the screen outweighing the bottom half, this is somewhat of a bummer because it makes the phone hard to handle.
This phone sports a 2 mega pixel camera with a decent image sensor and smooth digital zoom (not much use in picture mode, but helpful in video). I originally bought this phone because of the fact that it has a camera, which seemed like a stupid thing to do before I paid for at but once I've used the phone and camera, I've realized that it's a good idea. What more can I say, The camera's awesome.
This phone manages to sport media playback, lets start with the mp3 player, I have a transfer cable which I used for my 2125i which is compatible with the 6275i, and I have used it to transfer mp3's to the phone, but I was bummed to find out that the phone itself doesn't have a proper headphone jack, it has to be purchased separately and connects to the POP port on the bottom of the phone, if you don't have one, the phone automatically plays your tunes through the speaker phone, which is a little loud and muffles out the sound (but its speaker phone, so can't blame it too much). Now on to the radio, well I haven't tried it yet because of the fact that it requires the headphone adapter for an antenna and stuff, but reviews say its decent. The phone gets additional memory through a microsd card
So again, this is a wonderfull phone, and I would totally recommend it to any of my friends, I hope I covered everything in this review, and that you've read the whole thing, thanks for reading.
