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

Not even owned for 6 months, fully charged battery wouldnt last a day. Also froze on me alot when going into camera or gallery and the screen died, after having it fixed it happened again

Takes a good photo

Bad Battery, Waste of money

Nokia 6280 (Unlocked)


I've had the Nokia 6280 for a while and i have had no problems with it, the only thing is it only has 64MB of memory on the memory card, but you can buy bigger sized memory cards.

The sliding feature, the music player, the theme downloads off the net

Only 64MB of memory on the memory card
