Solid and capable but means less business than smartphones

The Nokia 6500 slide is a hard one to define and, though formally of the same bloodline, the 6500 classic isn't any better of a reference point. Nokia 6500 slide focus is on the imaging capabilities, plus, the brushed stainless steel exterior puts it in a more exclusive league.

The Nokia 6500 slide is a hard one to define and, though formally of the same bloodline, the 6500 classic isn't any better of a reference point. Nokia 6500 slide focus is on the imaging capabilities, plus, the brushed stainless steel exterior puts it in a more exclusive league.

Nokia 6500 slide is high on exclusivity and style but in a reserved or laid-back manner. It's not a cameraphone but has a very good camera. It's solid and capable but means less business than smartphones. It scores very high, both in terms of design and functionality, but is caught in crossfire due to its high price tag. With enough flashy premium handsets, heavyweight all-in-ones and practical but smart performers, pressure is coming from all ends on this otherwise highly recommendable device.

The phone doesn't always excel where one would expect it to

from MobileBurn

On paper, at least, the Nokia 6500 Slide looks like it should be a top end feature phone. It has dual-band 3G support in addition to quad-band GSM support, it has a built-in 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, and a solid media player. It is also quite attractive and uses a QVGA resolution display that can show up to 16 million different color shades. That's all very impressive...

On paper, at least, the Nokia 6500 Slide looks like it should be a top end feature phone. It has dual-band 3G support in addition to quad-band GSM support, it has a built-in 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, and a solid media player. It is also quite attractive and uses a QVGA resolution display that can show up to 16 million different color shades. That's all very impressive.

But the reality of the situation is that the phone doesn't always excel where one would expect it to. While the music player is, indeed, very good, the AF digital camera takes some coaxing to get a good photo out of it. The stainless steel cover material looks good, but adds to the phone's weight as well as makes it hard to keep clean. The QVGA display also lacks brightness, though it is, at least, usable in even the harshest lighting conditions. And then there is the problem with dropping calls that mars otherwise very good quality voice characteristics.

In the end, it is still a good phone, just not a great phone. As such, I give it a "Recommended" rating.
