The 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and double LED flash has a simplified and easy to use interface. To find the settings however, you’ll have to go through a few menus. This shortcoming is compensated to some extend by the toolbar added, which is activated when pressed left or right. Some of the buttons on the keyboard give fast access to the options, but there are no indicators whatsoever.

The pictures made outdoors have unreal colors, and the detail level is far from good. In an artificially lighted area, especially if the source is weak, the situation is much worse and the saddest part is that the double LED flash doesn’t illuminate the objects well enough.

It’s good that you can record videos in VGA (640x480 pixels) resolution and 15 fps. Their quality is nothing special but it’s quite good for a Navigator.

Multimedia :

The music player can sort tracks by artist, album, playlists, genre, composer and podcasts. The interface doesn’t offer anything new and you’ll be able to see the album art (if any), track information and indicators. As additional settings you can use some of the equalizer presets, to activate Loudness or Stereo widening effects. We recommend using the last two with headphones or you’ll not feel the difference.

The FM radio supports RDS and has a very simple interface. You can look for the available stations in your area not only automatically but via the Internet as well.

The video player will let you watch files converted in mp4 format with H263 or MPEG-4 codec and resolution no larger than 320x240 pixels. However, despite what the manufacturer claims, you won’t be able to play H264 coded ones. This is sad, because they have a much better picture and audio quality.

During music playback, the sound from the loudspeaker is with good quality. Nevertheless, listening to your favorite tunes with the headphones is much more pleasant. We are happy with 6210’s performance in this aspect.

I bought 6210 Navigator one month ago and I have already found some important defects, mainly on software: 1) Phone software sometimes freezes(needs to take away battery to restart). 2) Camera very often can't save photos and gives "System error". 3) Alarm has very annoying issues: if you set alarm for working days, it blocks the phone calendar starting from saturday. If you restart it , following saturday it will be blocked again, so on… You also cannot set a repeated alarm for a day of week. It only works for the current day. 4) Rear cover is very fragile and difficult to open. I am always worried to break it, when I need to open. My greater concern is about Nokia support to 6210. They don’t seem in a hurry to fix bugs neither respond to support request mails.
