Interface:

Nokia 6500 slide uses Series 40 5th Edition user interface.When the phone is at standby, in the upper part of the display, information appears about the signal strength, battery status, the clock and the mobile operator. In the lower part, the functions, related to the left and right selection keys, appear, which are „Go to” and “Names” by default and you can adjust them, as well as the functions of the menu key to your liking.

Home screen

3x3 grid

List

Tab

Main menu


The icons in the main menu are animated and are located in a 3x3 grid, as you can displace as you wish to ensure your own convenience. You can also set them to appear as List, Grid, Grid with labels or with Tabs. Working with the phone and menus is very easy, the order is intuitive and logically connected and will hardly be difficult for you. The phone’s response is fairly fast, so you will not get nervous and rap with fingers while a menu or a sub-menu is being loaded. The only delay is when browsing folders with numerous files, saved therein; it will take around 4 seconds until the phone has opened a folder with 200MB of videoclips.

Except for changing the main menu view you can also personalize the whole view of the phone by choosing one of the 6 themes. You have at your disposal 7 profiles that you can adjust at your own discretion; the flight profile excludes the tones and the connection with the operator, so that you can use the other functions of the device.


Phonebook:

The Phonebook is visualized as a list of names, but there are two other options: name and number and name and picture. When you introduce a new contact, you can enter two names and a number, but in order to add more information (ringtone, picture ID, etc.), press ‘add detail’ from the options menu. During an incoming call, the picture associated with the contact, appears and takes almost the whole screen, but when you dial, the picture is very small. Except for a picture, you can add to the contact a video clip, as its sound serves as a ring tone, while the video plays on the display.

An important drawback of the phonebook is the fact that you can look for the contacts only by the first name, you entered, which can cause major inconvenience when working with the phone.

1. Does the video player of the 6500 slide support forward and rewind of videos? 2. can you change the back light time? 3. can you adjust the brightness of the back light? 4. Did you check the TV-OUT feature? how was it? Thanks. MiGs migs.wordpress.com

This phone is ok, the only BAD THINGS are that the phone does not lock automatically when you close the phone and also your ringtones/themes will reset now and then as there is a fault with the memery card cradle which causes the memory card to move.. one way to test this is to keep the phone on and remove the back cover not try and access your memory card...Not there?? is it!

There is no fault. Did you actually READ the review? The phone is designed to cut off access to the memory card when the back is open (to prevent data loss.) Not that there is any reason to take the back off with the phone on other than to change the memory card.

Its a decent phone. 1st commenter, 1) No, you can't fast forward or rewind, 2)Yes, 3)No, 4)Novelty, somewhat useful, but disappointing. The sound lacked ANY low end whatsoever. It could be just my phone, or my cable, but my experience is dampened by poor sound output. No good for music video's, music in general, and video's may lack some ommph they may otherwise have. 2nd commenter. I know of the problem you talk about. If you look around the camera hole from the inside of the back cover, you will see some metal that pokes out. Notice how it contacts some metal on the phone itself, look where it would touch if the cover was on. You can move the metal part a bit using your fingernail so its more likely to contact the phone. I promise you will have to set ringtones less often.

/|\ It also has a good quality camera, TV Out displays your pics in the perfect way to show off the quality of the pics and videos you can | take. I find the performance a little on the slow side, but very usable. Its the phone of envy of my friends, they all say hiptop till they see this! Very solid construction, but a clear/silicon/leather case is recommended as little scuffs do build up and become much more noticeable. Whip it out of its case when going somewhere to show off, you'll thank yourself for protecting it.

i own 1 of these. 1. it does fast forward and rewind videos. just press and hold the directional button. 2. u can change the backlight time. 3. it does auto lock the phone. 4. u wan set the time it takes for the phone to sleep. 5. no, there is not problem with the memory cradle. the first batch had some issue but not after that. 5. mp3 ringtones? this baby has incoming call video! not that i think that's a practical thing to do but it is a cool thing to have. I am fully satisfied with the phone. before buying it, i was afraid it wouldn't meet my expectations as i was using a PDA phone before it. Now i'm a very happy owner... it's stylish, it's slick, it's stainless steel!!! sounds great for having 1 spealer. the size is just nice. The only problem is i can't use the secondary camera in front to take pictures. it's only for video calls.
