Conclusion: The Nokia 6700 Slide isn’t a bad little feature phone – but it has ideas above its station if it thinks it can make it in the advanced smartphone market. If you’re after a handset which can play media to a high standard, on which you can comfortably write long emails and browse the web – we’re sad...
Excerpt: Nokia has a real gift for coming up with classy but simple phones. This one is the successor to the hugely popular 6300, and like that it leaps into life quickly: contacts are available in seconds. It's got lots of features, a shiny exterior, is light and very impressive.
Nokia 6700 slide Review - Affordable Symbian Smartphone
11 December 2010
Excerpt: In a market dominated by Android, iOS and Blackberry, it is a little surprising to see that Nokia is still the best selling handset manufacturer in the world. Symbian smartphones continue to retail very well on emerging markets, but it's not the high-end product among the best selling Nokia devices.
Cons: I think that including a built-in GPS receiver and Wi-Fi connectivity would have made the phone more interesting. Even one of the two mentioned features would have been enough. Unfortunately, the handset has none of those and also lacks a document viewer. Other downsides of the phone are the smal...
Summary: The ringtone volume is enough for the majority of situations, but its sound is not very clear. The same can be said about the performance of the speaker during the talk. There is a bit of vibration and the sound is not clear enough.
Conclusion: Although most manufacturers are heavily attacking the touchscreen segment of the cell phone market now, Nokia - the world's largest cell phone manufacturer - is still relying mainly on its non-touch business. Devices like the Nokia 6700 slide prove that.
Pros: Appealing design, Nice construction, Available in many different colors, Great call quality, Good still images
Cons: Interface needs a refresher, Mediocre video recording, Headset from the box is not good enough
Summary: An easy-to-use, high spec, mid-range mobile handset that is great value for its price. The Nokia 6700 includes all the essentials you’d expect for a mid-range mobile phone and then some: Autofocus 5 megapixel camera, MP3 music player, super-fast 3G, stereo FM radio and bluetooth connectivity.
Conclusion: A sliding version of Nokia’s 6700 classic, with an upgrade to Series 60 for full smartphone functionality. The 6700 slide has the same stylish appearance and powerful feature-set of the classic, with a truly excellent 5-megapixel camera and free GPS navigation with Ovi maps.
Summary: The simplicity of the Slide 6700 will attract people just as it puts others off. But those who want a fairly basic spec with a couple of extras and the chance to download more will find plenty to love in this stylish little slider phone.
Pros: Stylish and compact, easy to use and a good price.
Cons: There are no advanced features like Wi-Fi or GPS.
