Nokia 6260 reviewNokia 6260 7.2
Reception wise, Nokia 6260 performs excellent. Even though the method used to test the reception is not very scientific (visit a specific place where I know that most phones get very week signal or no signal at all) it still is indicative of how the phone will perform in the real world.
The battery performance is excellent considering that it is a smart-phone with large screen. In my lab tests, I got 6.5 hours of continuous talk time - way longer then the official 4.00h.
The only performance problem I had with the phone was with the quality of the sound produced. I am not sure if the unit I had for the review was defective, or just all 6260 are like that, but there was very noticeable and loud hissing background at all times. The problem was not with the phone's speaker, since the same hissing sound was present ever when I used Bluetooth headset (without digital signal processing). I also tried the 6260 with Jabra BT800 which uses digital signal processing to minimize static and other interference and the hissing sound was gone. So before you purchase it, try to make a test phone call to make sure you do not have the same problem.
When activated, the speakerphone was loud and satisfactory clear.
