Conclusion: In Nokia 6500 we notice a combination, on the one hand, of the 8600 Luna sensation with a very good camera, on the other, but at a lower price. Special attention has been paid to every detail; the objective of this perfection in manufacturing being satisfaction of every customer requirement.
Pros: Very good display with a light sensor, Reliable and tight slide mechanism, 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Quad band GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz and dual band UMTS 850/2100 MHz
Cons: Volume key is hard to find and difficult to press
Summary: One of those rare phones that actually looks better in the flesh than in photos. We love the brushed metal finish and black trim. It is a beautifully constructed handset with large navigation and soft keys on the fascia and a keypad which is not at all affected by the slider mechanism of the phone...
Pros: Looks and feels great, and it's easy to use.
Cons: It took us a while to work out how to remove the rear battery casing (there's a release button on top).
Conclusion: After playing with the Nokia 6500 slide for over a week, it merely comes across as a poor mans Nokia N95. The design is very similar, hence the reference, but the feature set no way near as fulfilling: no 5 megapixel camera, no dedicated music player, no GPS, no 8GB of on-board storage.
Excerpt: Das Smartphone Nokia 6500 Slide wurde in insgesamt 8 Tests aus der Fachpresse wie Inside-Handy.de, CHIP oder test (Stiftung Warentest) durchgecheckt und konnte mit durchschnittlich 2,1 beachtlich abschneiden. Das Testmagazin vergab die Auszeichnungen " Bester im Test " und " Bester im Test ".
Summary: Schade, dass das Design so klobig ausgefallen ist. Dennoch hat das Nokia 6500 Slide dank eines cleveren TV-Ausgangs, einer guten 3,2-Megapixel-Kamera und eines beeindruckenden Musik-Players eine Menge zu bieten.
