Nokia 6280 review: High-class slider

 

Nokia has created its new 6280 as a substitute for Nokia 6230i. Is this a successful move? Nokia 6280 is literally bulged with functions. On the other hand, it features quite an exotic slide-out construction, which provokes missunderstanding in the end...

Nokia finally seems to be taking 3G devices seriously. The new 6280 is a feature-packed handset with dual cameras, a miniSD memory card slot, and Bluetooth support. This hot slider handset should be available in time for Christmas this year.

Nokia 6280 Review

 

The Nokia 6280 is a 3G triband slider phone that has been on the market since late 2005. Although the Nokia 6280 isn't a smartphone, it's loaded with all the bells a whistles of a typical 3G smartphone.

Overall, the screen and cameras are superb. The design and functionality of the Nokia 6280 are also top notch. There's few 3G phones on the market that can compare to the 6280, I imagine the Nokia 6280 is one of the best 3G phones now available

Great screen, great control without sliding,

Nokia 6280 3G slide phone comes with a range of features that enable consumers to take full advantage of 3G multimedia opportunities. Equipped with both a 2-megapixel and a VGA camera.

Plenty of features easy to use nice screen ; Cons: Camera functions could be better

Camera functions could be better

Overall, the 6280 is a noteworthy phone (especially if you like slider designs) despite being a slight letdown in the camera department.

Nokia 6280 mobile phone review

 

Nokia is rapidly getting to grips with this 3G malarkey, and this handset is possibly its best third-generation handset yet. The 6280 is a Series 40 mobile, and features an updated version of the popular operating system. It's also a little bit on the...

Good screen, friendly operating system

Chunky, and not everyone likes a slider

It’s big, but it looks great, and has a good dose of features

3G Phones have long been a hit and miss affair. Unlike their 2.5G counterparts, 3G handsets are generally regarded as big, bulky and slow - amongst ma...

Design, Superb interface, User Friendly, Quality Display, Comfortable keypad and controls, Good list of features

Slider not well built, Issues with Camera quality, Pixilated animated menu icons

A fantastic entry into the 3G market, the 6280 offers a superb user interface, together with an outstanding display. Definitely one of the best 3G handsets available.

At first glance you'd never guess that the 6280 is a 3G handset. Yes, it's a little on the fat side, but hey, it is a slider, and it doesn't look much thinker than non-3G phones. 3G might not even be the killer feature for you -- there's an FM radio, a...
