Hands on with a Nokia N6120

A visitors once left a comment asking me what I thought of this new HSDPA phone by Nokia. I checked out the Nokia 6120 Classic and thought it was a really good buy.

First of all, the unit is fairly priced. At about Php12,300, you get a 3G/HSDPA S60 phone packed with features. Here are some of the highlights:

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series
  • It’s small, compact and lightweight: 105 x 46 x 15 mm at 89 grams
  • HSDPA — why settle with 3G when you can get 3.5G? It’s more than 2x the speed on coverage areas.
  • QVGA, TFT, 16 true million colors, 320 x 240 pixels, 2 inches
  • 2MP camera (4x zoom) with flash + a secondary camera for video calls
  • S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1

Surprisingly, the unit is very responsive. There’s no apparent lag time when using basic functions such as SMS or voice calls (unlike the that old N3230). The Nokia 6120 Classic can be considered a good upgrade to those who like me, loved the N6233 when it first came out about 2 years ago.

The new features that got me hooked up with this phone is the Symbian OS. This one came with the S60 3rd edition Feature Pack 1 — wireless keyboard, GPS, Nokia Maps, Wireless Presenter, Quick Office, Adobe PDF, etc. Tons of other apps too including a D! Beta where you can see a catalog of free and trial softwares you can download and install directly into your phone. It also supports firmware upgrade Over The Air. It’s really nice to have a lot of softwares and apps to choose from, something my Samsung BlackJack is seriously lacking.

Other new noticeable improvements include a speed mini USB with mass storage class, a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, a text-to-speech feature, and a nicely sounding built-in stereo speakers.

It doesn’t come with GPS or WiFi like the new N82 but at Php12,000+, the Nokia 6120 is well worth it. (Another hot model is the cheaper Nokia 6300.)

    Liked Philippines, Technology News & Reviews What I enjoy about web site blogs is the result that they set off a thought in my mind. After that takes place I find that I have to compose a commentary with the hope it is pleasurable to some individuals. My motto – People are about to say what they wish to do. In the end, they forever do. The most we can long for is to spotlight a couple of things here and there that with luck enables them to make an informed decision.
