Nokia 6120 Classic Review

With the launch of the N-series in the end of 2005 and the E-series in October the same year, Nokia’s Symbian smartphones became more targeted at particular groups of people and particular interests (multimedia / business), developing mainly in these directions. The good smartphones of the brand are invariably from one of the above series and the Symbian models with the four-digit model numbers, typical for the brand, have lost position, due to their more modest specifications. Thus, there came a time when it proved impossible to buy a balanced Nokia smartphone, availing of the contemporary phone functions and instead you had to choose between a multimedia phone (N-series), a business phone (E-series) or a middle-of-the-road option from the other models.

A tendency that we have observed lately is Nokia’s attempt to offer better smartphones also from the groups, which are not part of the N- and E-series. The compromises have been reduced and the new models are no longer ‘second-to-best phones’. The new generation of the said Nokia smartphones, launched during this year’s Q1 and Q2, proudly feature QVGA displays and 16 million colors, the most recent Symbian v9.2 OS, fast 369 MHz processors and 3G. The currently tested 6120 Classic even maintains 2 frequencies, one for Europe/Asia and one for North America.

6120, named „Classic”, is one of the few smartphones, included in this group. This is the ‘normal’ phones’ class: not the ones, targeted at people with particular interests, but the ones intended as mass sellers: phones that would appeal to different people in different age-groups, with different interests and social status.
