Nokia 6700 classic Review
Alongside of the Nokia 6300, the Nokia 6700 classic features an overall design that´s been streamlined and made even neater. It feels somewhat bulky, but we can live with that, because it´s not every day that you can see such a high quality of workmanship. The Nokia 6700 classic performs really well as being a phone as well – in-call quality is really good, voices sound loud, clear and realistic on either end of the line.
Aside from its appealing overall look, the 6700 classic comes with new and improved WebKit-based browser that left us with good impressions. Pages are visualized without any problems and the fast 3G support guarantees this happens fast. Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi functionality is conspicuous in its absence and you won´t fail to notice that. Snapshots didn´t exactly wowed us, but camera quality will do when it comes to occasional pictures in proper lighting conditions. Things get really bad when there´s not enough light and the camera flash produces weird blue line across images. The multimedia capability of the phone is nothing to brag about either.
Despite the above mentioned shortcomings, we can honestly say the Nokia 6700 classic makes for a worthy successor to the Nokia 6300. It´s a decent, modern device and buying it is money well spent. In case you feel like hunting for other stylish handsets in the same price range, you might want to look at the Samsung Ultra B S7220 that also comes in a dainty, candybar form factor, has a better 5-megapixel camera, but delivers worse in-call quality. The Samsung Soulb and both sliders, the Samsung Ultra S S7350 and LG KF510 are viable options as well.
Nokia 6700 classic Video Review:
- Likeable, stylish overall design paired with exquisite workmanship
- High in-call quality
- Capable WebKit-based browser and fast 3G support
- Keypad buttons aren´t really comfy and the volume rocker is almost unusable
- There´s neither Wi-Fi support, nor 3.5mm jack or convertor
- Bad camera quality when there´s not enough light

I am curious about the comment "It can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile USA but without 3G." Why is that?

We apologize for the mistake and have now changed the text to: "This is a global GSM phone, it can be used with AT&T's 1900MHz 3G band, and with T-Mobile without 3G." That's because the 6700 classic has quad-band GSM support and tri-band 3G (900/1900/2100MHz). Once again, sorry for the confusion.
