Nokia 6210 Navigator Review

Nokia 6210 Navigator

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team



Nokia 6210 Navigator runs very fast, but not as fast as one of the quickest Symbian phones we have seen, Nokia 6120 classic. There is a light lag when the accelerometer rotates the screen, but you’ll get used to it.

Nokia 6210 Navigator Review
The sound during a talk is above the average. You will hear real voices with good sound volume and quality, but at times, they could be kind of sharp. At the other end of the line, the sound is slightly louder but the  quality level is lower. The collocutor will hear an unreal and sharp voice, but this shouldn’t prevent him from understanding clearly everything you are saying.

According to the official data, the battery should provide up to 3.7 hours of talks, 244 hours in standby mode or 6.2 of using the GPS. Compared to all the other phones, the first two values are low, but the time it allows you to use the GPS deserves a praise.


If you are looking for a user-friendly, navigation phone, 6210 Navigator is a good solution. However, you’ll have to live with the partial maps for some regions which can be a huge drawback. An alternative option is 6220 classic. It is in the same price range and functionality-wise, the differences between the two are that the latter is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera and offers three (as opposed to six) months of free navigation. We would’ve preferred the second option, because of the higher class of the camera.


  • Fast GPS and battery, ensuring its continuous use
  • Quality make and convenient keys
  • Very good display
  • Good sound quality during a talk and when listening to music


  • Partial maps for some regions
  • No H264 video codec support
  • A very hard to remove back lid

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.
