So here’s my winning entry for the blog review contest.
My mom sent this Nokia 6500 mobile phone as a birthday gift for me 2 years ago. I had been using this phone for more than 2 years now and I am absolutely amazed and love its features and specs.
The image quality is great. Neither the backlighting, nor the contrast is user-configurable. The phone has a great signal reception and its call clarity is loud and clear on both ends and I have no problems communicating with this phone.
The phone ringing is easy to hear even in the noisiest environment. The phonebook also offers space for up to 2000 contacts, as well as various configuration options.
Text Messaging is great with its keypad too. It is organized perfectly. Besides standard text messages, the phone is capable of receiving and sending multimedia messages, sound, flash messages, and emails. Sending an SMS and MMS is used using the same editor and so all you need to do in order to turn a regular SMS into an MMS is insert a picture or any other multimedia content. As soon as you activate the editor, it displays a field for entering the number of the recipient, which you can insert through standard typing, select it from the phonebook, from the caller groups, or from the list with the most recent addressees in the call register.
There is even the very handy option to select a favorite message contact in case you have frequent correspondence with one and the same person. Everything in the editor is intuitive and is organized in a practical time-saving manner. It also offers a large number of configurable options. The sonic experience is enhanced by the equalizers and a stereo expansion function works so well.
What I also love about this phone is its clear and loudspeaker. The good thing is that it does not get muffled at all when the phone body is placed on its back on an even surface such as a desk. The stereo FM radio with Visual radio is great with this phone. It uses the audio player interface and has the well known functions. The Visual radio application is helpful as it can download the radio stations in your area and save them to the handset with their names when an internet connection is available.
One of my favorite feature of this phone is its very good 3.2 megapixel autofocus CMOS camera with Carl Zeiss optics which has an integrated dual LED flash and the video recording capability in a VGA resolution. The camera of this phone produces images for up to 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution. It has an automatic flash mode and it can capture a very fine, crisp and clear image even when its very dark. Noise level is relatively high, especially with sufficient light.The autofocus camera does well at close-ups, which is quite pleasing for a camera phone like this one.
Its main connectivity is through USB using a micro sd memory card The memory card slot is also onboard to expand the built-in 20MB user available memory with up to 4GB card. Bluetooth is also available in this phone and surprisingly, it has a TV-Out support too.
This phone also has an integrated WAP browser, which also manages HTML pages. Direct address entering is available too.
For mobile phone gaming lovers like me also will probably appreciate the preinstalled content of this phone as it includes five games namely, the Backgammon II, Snake III , Highroller Casino, Golf Tour, and The Rally 3D simulation.
So if you are looking for a slim and sliding phone with a classy look and design but with tons of great features and specifications, I highly recommend this phone.
