Introduction:

We are about to take a closer look at the Nokia 6220 classic today. This is a midrange smart-phone, equipped with a decent number of functions that neither clearly make it a business device, nor a multimedia one. Still, given its contemporary design and smarty OS, i.e. Symbian S60 3rd Edition with Feature Pack 2, we do expect to see it perform reasonably in both areas. Here is what you´ll find in the box:

  • Nokia 6220 classic
  • Charger
  • 2.5мм earphones
  • microUSB cable
  • TV out cable
  • User guide
  • Software disk


Design:

As we mentioned, the Nokia 6220 classic sports a contemporary design that is certainly eye pleasing, even if not groundbreaking or something unseen before. There is a 2.2-inch QVGA display with a light sensor that regulates its brightness right above, next to the video call camera. The screen delivers 16 million colors, so get ready to indulge an image quality with saturated colors that is also perfectly OK for a bunch of other things than business. It´s a good thing that the display remains usable outdoors - details are easily discernible and clear despite the colors become somewhat worn out in the sun.

The keyboard is far from being the most comfortable we have ever used. The first thing we came to dislike was the soft keys. They are hard to use, plus you need to press right in middle, since pushing down on any other part of any of them, say the upper, will most probably fail to register. The same goes for the numeric keys. Unless you use both your hands, you may find it difficult to press the buttons in the most inner column. Fortunately, we do not have any complaints about the D-Pad, it´s stable and easy to use.

Fortunately, the buttons on either side don´t give any trouble. The one that starts Nokia Maps, along with the microSD slot are on the left hand side, volume rocker and camera shutter - on the opposite. The on/off button is on the top, while microUSB, 2.5mm and charger ports are all on the bottom side of the phone.

You will find the 5-megapixel, Carl-Zeiss optics camera on the back of the device, accompanied by something camera phone buffs will find most welcome – a xenon flash. The lens is protected with a small flap you can open or close using a somewhat flimsy sliding mechanism.
