Beware of the Non designed for USA market cell phones
16 February 2010
Summary: The nokia 6260 is not designed for USA market It is for chinese market . i am one of the lucky s that have it without knowing that fact before i paid. the phone is quiet a cool gadget , with stand alone Gps , HQ camera wifi in short , all i need . what i did not like is the 2 frontal buttons , its a bit hard to push them also the joystick is not responding easily , you have to press once more ... the screen picture is shaking sometimes , i can live with that .
Excerpt: I had this phone for close to 10 months now, its a great phone. The only problem i have with the phone is the memory , but you can buy a larger mem card to sort that prob. Love the way the phone flips and rotates. i love phones with big screens , so it was a joy buying this phone. however when it flips open it is very large and it is a bulky phone. i have a cover for my phone which makes it looks much larger.
Excerpt: the nokia 6260 is a cute, flip phone. the phone is completely stylish but quite bulky when the flip is opened. here are some features of the phone : PROS : 1) Looks Professional when flip is closed. 2) Rotating screen 3) Decent VGA camera 4) Powerful Vibrate 5) Hot swappable for RS-MMC 6) Themes instead of plain simple wallpapers 7) Doesn't attend calls when flip is opened CONS : 1) No display when flip is closed 2) Uncomfortable keypad (especially while driving) 3)...
Excerpt: I've had this phone for some time now, and i must say that: "Yeah, it has a lot of features, but the quality is so-so." i really hate the video quality of this phone. It's too slooow and blurry!!! It's like having the feature just for the sake of having it. i wish they'd made the camera better. Like, 1 mega-pixel maybe? =) I've tried printing pictures taken by the phone and they're all blurry.
Excerpt: I think that the nokia 6260 should have exteranl Caller Id. Personaly my favorite type of phones are the ones with a camera, flip phone, external caller id, and practically everything the nokia 6260 has only with external caller id.
Excerpt: The Nokia 6260 is a clamshell phone with a range of interesting features, but most obviously its most notable feature is the rotating screen which can be rotated to a number of positions - open, closed, facing inwards and facing outwards. This is a little "gimicky" and at first it's quite fun but the novelty soon wears off. After a few days the sturdyness of the screen wears of and the hinge feels very loose and dangerously close to falling off (although it never does).
Pros: Trendy looking rotating screen, lots of features
Excerpt: Firstly, despite the fact that this phone has both the appearance and weight of a breeze block, it undoubtedly uses the given space to store all of the brilliant features. It is of course a smart phone and one of the most defining features must be the 180˚ pivoting screen - particularly useful for when browsing files with the phone or taking pictures.
Pros: Great Screen, Turns Through 180 Degrees, Lots of Features, Smartphone, Good Conectivity, Great Battery / Signal .
Cons: Size . . . . Ohh Dear, Let's Not Go There . . . .
Excerpt: the nokia 6260 is a nicely designed phone that has a screen that can be rotated 180 degrees and folded back. it is practical in a lot of environments. the black design looks a lot better than the silver one but it always has marks and fingure prints all over it when you have used it. i got a silver one for a week as they didnt have the black one in stock and i had it for about 3 days then the phone just died off, so i returend it to the retailer and i was told that they...
Excerpt: this phone is the worst i have ever had unless you dieing to send a couple of e-mail dont get it its far to bulky and the key layout is so enoying if you want a phone with alot of bussiness functions and one that looks great too i would suggest you buy a orange spv c500 or c550 or c600 as these phone are great although the 6260 my look better in the pics its not once you get them next to one another you can really tell how much better the spv looks and how much better...
Excerpt: I purchased this phone in April 2005, after being seduced by the striking good looks on a website. Unfortunately the images did not put the phone in context to anything else and I was completely surprised at the enormity of it when it actually arrived. That said it was easy to set up, and the memory card supplied provided more than enough storage for the few photographs I have taken. Quality of pictures is fairly good, as is the quality of video.
Pros: Image, menu operation
Cons: Build quality, fiddly joystick, larger than anticipated
