Nokia 6600 Slide Black Mobile Phone Review

The Nokia 6600 Slide Black is a compact phone just 14mm thick and weighing in at 110grams. The slider has a smooth action and can be operated with one hand. The steel and aluminium construction give the 6600 Slide Black a high quality feel, unlike many competitors which can sometimes feel cheap and “plasticky”. Despite the small size, the 6600 Slide Black features a 2.2 inch QVGA screen with over 16 million colours ensuring clear and bright graphics. Battery life is about average for the class with 3-4 hours of talk time and up to 240 hours on standby.

The Nokia 6600 Slide Black model features a music player with FM radio which supports MP3, MP4, AAC & eAAC+ and MicroSoft-Windows Media Audio (WMA) and has a graphic equaliser with 5 pre-sets. There is 20Mb of on board memory and the 6600 Slide Black bundle includes a useful 512Mb microSD card for extra storage (can be expanded to 4Gb), along with data cable, and a set of stereo headphones with detachable remote. Email is fully supported using Nokia email client which can creating, send, edit and and receive Multimedia messages, both images and video. A 3.2 megapixel camera with 8x zoom and a double LED flash is included along with VGA/QVGA video recording (15 fps – 30 fps) which gives good quality recording.

Featuring an Opera Mini 4 XHTML browser, which supports Java and Flash, browsing the world wide web is a joy. Using font size customization up to 11 lines of text can be read on screen. Connectivity is good with Bluetooth® and MicroUSB options for connections to PC, laptop or printer. However lack of Wi-Fi is a pain.

Sound quality on calls is loud and clear on both ends due to the Nokia background noise cancellation feature known as “Voice Clarity”.

Pros
Instant messaging support for AOL, Yahoo and MSN
New tap technology from Nokia which allows the user to mute/reject calls or silence the alarm simply by tapping the outer case of the phone
Flash support
Stereo FM radio with RDS
Nokia Maps
Screen viewable from wide angles and very clear
Video calling
voice recorder with a 60-minute limit

Cons
No Wi-Fi LAN connectivity
Camera not great
Memory card located under battery
Screen easily scratched if phone placed face down
Glossy finish shows up fingerprints smudges

The Nokia 6600 Slide Black has some fantastic features, however even this 5th edition of the S40 operating system lacks multi-tasking support. For instance you cannot minimise an application and launch another, only one application can be run at a time. Add in the lack of Wi-Fi and this stops the 6600 Slide Black taking class honours, still a cracking mobile phone however!
