Nokia 6700 Classic Review


Welcome to the Nokia 6700 Classic review.  We have been meaning to do a write up on the phone for a while now (since its mid-2009 release) but for what ever reason just never gt around to finishing it. There are 2 different 6700 out there, the 6700 Classic and the 6700 Slide.  They have the similar names but are quite different phones.  See the separate review on the 6700 Slide on a different page.

The 6700 Classic like it’s predecessor the 6500 Classic is a decent looking phone.  It also looks better in some colours than others.  It is very thin yet has a solid feel due to the case which is largely made of metal. Overall you’ll probably love the look and feel.

It runs Nokia S40 operating system so if you’ve used a Nokia before you will feel instantly at home.  Everything has been sped up so very few lags when moving between the phone inbuilt applications.  Infinitely better than the previous 6500.  All the Apps you need are inbuilt so you won’t need to install any thing unless you really want to. It will also run our animated wallpapers or screensavers!  There are also a few Nokia built and cute animations in the system to keep you happy.  The internet browser is also quite Ok for most basic internet surfing but as with all numeric keypad phones there is only so much you can do on a small screen or type in.

In terms of hardware the 6700 has all that required in what we call a decent phone.  That means a decent screen, camera and video recorder, A-GPS, 3G and Bluetooth.  The only thing missing is Wi-Fi.

We can’t really say much more about the 6700 since it does everything that you really need for voice, video, SMS, emails, IM, some internet and more.  It is a decent mobile phone and looks good and works fast too – better in some colours.   Easily better than prior models like the 6300 and the 6500. We choose it above the other eg. SE Naite purely because it looks and feels better to use.  The 6700 should be reliable so you we think you’ll be pretty happy with what is a classic mobile phone for 2010!
