Nokia 6500 classic Review

The numerous multimedia capabilities of contemporary phones have called for increasingly bigger displays, which quite often take up more than half of the phone’s front part. This peculiarity has forced designers to extend the length of the devices, in order to fit in the screen, at the same time keeping the buttons handy. It was then that the idea was born to make the devices thinner, instead of looking for ways to make them shorter. We all remember the success achieved by Motorola’s V3, which was the first model of the RAZR series and its launch marked the beginning of the phones’ ‘slimming’.

Just like most other manufacturers, Nokia have been influenced by this development and so here comes a typical representative of this trend, i.e. Nokia 6500 classic. This is one of the two devices from the company’s 6500 series; recently we brought 6500 slide to your attention. Unlike the latter model, classic is a traditional candybar, but it nevertheless preserves the style and the aesthetics: metals were used in its make.

The Nokia 6500 phone has much of elegant design. The 6500 classic is positioned as a design-centric phone, what really strikes us is its lean form factor. Certainly, there’s much to like about it. At just 9.5mm, it is the slimmest Nokia phone. The camera is the industry standard of 2 mega pixels, which is good but not outstanding. The talk time on the phone is a bit over 3 hours, while the standby time is 216 hours.
