Camera and multimedia:

One of the key features of the Nokia 6220 classic is its 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and xenon flash. Starting up its interface you will have the opportunity to relish smooth animated transition to landscape view mode, with the menu and all its options appearing in the right end of the screen. It has monochrome icons that look incomprehensible, but you can rearrange them to better suit your taste and need. Of course, options like white balance, exposure, sharpness, etc. are all here.

There were enough details in all snapshots we took, although colors looked a bit surreal, overly saturated in certain places and scanty in others. The xenon flash does a great job lighting up dark places and performed well even in pitch dark. The thing is if you go for a snapshot in completely dark places keeping away from the object you are trying to take a shot of, the phone might not be able to properly focus. Still, the camera offers much more functionality than most devices as a whole.

You can capture videos with 640x480 pixels resolution at 30 frames per second. The sound is loud and clear, so the 6220 classic performers pretty well here as well.

There was no way we didn´t test the Nokia 6220 classic as an entertainment device, so we started the audio player and… bang! Everyone turned our way, astounded at the loudness of the built-in speaker. It packs a lot of punch and provides more than satisfactory sound quality. That´s the ticket, Nokia! Surely, the next thing we got down to was the 2.5mm earphones that came in the box. Their qualities definitely didn´t manage to leave us gasping for air. While trebles were distinct to the point we felt like turning the volume down at times, you need not worry that doing the latter would make the bass frequencies suffer, since they are not there anyway. All told, we were utterly unimpressed by the earphones.

It´s a crying shame, but the video playback capabilities of the phone are really disappointing as well. The manufacturer claims the device should be able to play H.263 and H.264 video content without a hitch, but the only test file we were able to run was an MPEG-4 video with a 320x240 pixel resolution. So, if you want to make sure all your videos run smoothly, you better convert them into the above mentioned format.

Broken spirited by the laughable video performance, we said to ourselves “Well, there should be games at least”. Yes, there… is just one going by the unimaginative name of “Marble” that actually turned out to be pretty amusing indeed, so we guarantee you´ll get hooked up on it for a long time. Of course, you can always install more titles.
