Nokia 6555 review

4.3/10 AVG.

Informr score
The Nokia 6555 currently has an Informr score of 4.3 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 69 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

If you are looking for a fun, capable flip phone, take a look at the Nokia 6555.

Simple and straightforward, the Nokia 6555 is built for folks who want a “phone”, but would like some extras in case they feel like experimenting.

Available in black, silver, red and beige, this clamshell sports a good quality 2.0 inch 240x320 pixel screen that displays crisp text and tight, colorful icons. The keypad is large enough to accommodate almost any size fingers and using T9 texting is swift and sure. It also includes Bluetooth 2.0 so you can take advantage of the new line of headsets.

With the Nokia 6555 you can send text messages, multi-media messages, email, take pictures, listen to music and surf the web via its WAP browser. It also comes with an often over-looked but always appreciated 2.5mm jack, so you can use a high quality set of headphones should you decide to make use of the MP3 player.

The Nokia 6555 has a rated talk time of six hours and a standby time of 260 hours.

Compact but not crunched down, the Nokia 6555 offers customers a middle-tier feature set with a durable attractive casing.

What the Critics Are Saying...


The midrange clamshell Nokia 6555 offers standard equipment and above-its-class elegance. Other than the looks, the two quality screens and the comfortable keypad are indisputable advantages. As to functionality, there are no surprises. But then, the price tag promises none. The downright drawbacks...

- GSMArena team, GSMArena

It's an attractive phone that looks and feels more expensive than it is. This handset certainly won't be all things to all people, but its feature set seldom leaves you wanting for more.
