Nokia 6555 Review
The 6555 was very quick to our commands and barely gave us a problem. The website and email were the only problems that we ran into while testing . When checking emails with attachments, about 3 out of 20 emails locked up the phone. The attachments were all picture files, very small too, and this happened at different times.
Reception has been one of Nokia’s strong points and it follows here. There were times where we were in basements but still able to continue our conversations, which is quite remarkable as most phones lost signal there all together.
Sound quality wasn’t as great on the other hand. Most of the time, both parties heard each other just fine, the voices came through clearly and it almost seemed as if they were right next to you, but when it came down to handset to handset talking, the person on the other hand sounded distant and distorted. It happened only occasionally and you could still make out what they’re saying with a little bit of focus. After trying to put the call on hold, change the volume, and even switch to a Bluetooth headset, the only solution was to call the person back.
Volume was up to the task as we had no trouble hearing the conversation. Even the ringer was load so long as it’s not going off in a very loud environment.
Well, all of this would be worthless if the battery couldn’t keep up so how well does it perform? From a full charge on a GSM network, we got 7 hours compared to Nokia’s rating of 5 hours. If you’re on a UMTS network, expect a lot less as it’s rated for only 3 hours and 15 minutes. In our tests, we kept traveling between GSM and UMTS networks and found that the battery lasted for a long time. The standby time is rated for 300 hours so even light to moderate users shouldn’t have to worry.
So, is the 6555 a great multipurpose phone at the end? Well, yes. Okay, so it may not get any awards or attract you from that iPhone or BlackBerry but that’s not what its goal is. The 6555 is there to get you through the day and still provide you with plenty of features in case you find yourself without say your MP3 player, internet connection, or camera. When you consider its price low price, the deal seems that much better.
- Plenty of features to get you through the day
- Long battery life
- Good quality pictures considering the spec of the camera
- Web browsing is very lacking
- Location of microSD slot
- Some sound issues
