Nokia 6620 review

7.9/10 AVG.
RATING



7.9/10
Informr score
The Nokia 6620 currently has an Informr score of 7.9 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 29 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The Nokia 6620 was released for sale in Canada in the early spring, 2005. It's a GSM tri-band world-phone (800/1800/1900MHz), which means it's great pretty much anywhere in the world. It's sold by Rogers Wireless in Canada and Cingular/ AT&T in the US. I tested both versions.

Dimensions & Design

The first thing I noticed was how large the screen is on this phone. It's HUGE. Coming in at a good 65k of colors, this phone has one of the better screens I’ve used. It’s comparable with most 200k screens on other phones. The design is quite unique. You either love it or you hate it. A lot of people thought it was an ugly egg, but I didn’t mind it at all. My main complaint was the key size. You had to be careful where you placed your thumbs and dialing without looking was difficult.

The phone takes a MMC expansion card, which goes in the back of the phone next to the SIM card slot. This allows you to add extra memory; up to 256MB (I had trouble adding a larger card). You can use that to store files, mp3's, pictures, or whatever you feel like. The two phones I tested varied in durability, although they were both manufactured in the same plant in Brazil. The AT&T one had a loose back battery cover, typical of a lot of Nokia phones. The newer Rogers one didn’t have this issue.

Camera

The VGA camera was pretty decent. The pictures looked quite good (for a camera-phone) on both the device’s screen and the computer screen.

Coverage & RF

As I mentioned earlier, this is a tri-band GSM world-phone (850/1800/1900MHz) that will work not only within North America, but also in many other countries throughout the world. The phone was able to pick up signal fairly well in weak areas, about the same as the Motorola V300 I had. Although, it still struggled behind my Nokia 3595, the RF king.

Sound Quality

This phone's incoming and outgoing sound quality is actually quite good, although it's quiet on the incoming side. This issue is a little better when the phone is running on the Fido, T-Mobile or Cingular networks.

Wireless Data, Web Browser, Email & Organizer

This phone supports CLASS-4 EDGE, which is the current standard for high-speed data on GSM-based Networks. Using the web browser on this device for HTML was quite annoying. It doesn’t appear to work with Java or JavaScript. If you use sites designed for a mobile phone however, such as ones that support WAP or WML, the phone browser is really quite good.

The email client and personal organizer were very good on this phone. While the email can be handy on the road, be warned that you'll use up data storage quickly. There are an almost unlimited number of 3rd-party apps available for this phone... just search "Nokia Series 60 programs" on Google or another engine, and you can see for yourself.

Battery

Should last you 2-3 days no problem.

Overall

This is a good device for someone who wants a mix between a personal organizer and a phone. It has a great email client and WAP browser. Go for it! It’s a great phone.
