The music player interface is standard and functional, with tracks filed under regular category headings, and the D-pad acting as player controls. The earphones supplied with the 6220 classic are fair, and audio quality through them is reasonably good.
A 2.5mm AV jack socket means that with the help of a common 2.5mm-to-3.5mm adapter you could add a better set of headphones if you want to get the most out of the software. The loudspeaker is louder and clearer than many mobiles – though in normal mobile fashion it still manages to avoid deeper bass frequencies.

As well as boosting video and audio download speeds, HSDPA connectivity hurries along the browsing experience. The Nokia browser is relatively speedy for a mobile – though you have the normal wait for pages to resolve - and provides a decent selection of page overview, pan and zoom options. Naturally you can switch it to full widescreen for a better view.
Support for RSS feed is included too, and Nokia has pre-loaded web-based widgets applications – its own WidSets service and Yahoo! Go – to offer a selection of alternative web info and service options. Other links for online Nokia services include Download! for finding and adding extra apps, and XpressPrint for online photo printing.
As a Nokia S60 device, you get plenty of office tools and productivity apps alongside the more glitzy headline applications. QuickOffice and Adobe PDF reader software is included for viewing standard files received as email attachments, or documents copied over to the phone.
@Captain DaFt + others - Snooze Time
Okay, I know you were joking - but seriously, the point of snooze time is to snooze a bit more.
Some people wake up differently - some can jump straight out of bed, others, like myself, need 20mins of gently being re-introduced to the world ! Plus its not just the the wake up alarm - you can set reminders for things, and sometimes you'll be in the middle of something else, then for the buzzer to come back 5mins later is annoying, so you cancel the whole reminder and then forget about it - whereas setting somewhere up to 20, 30 mins later would be helpful.
And yes - after text, calling and phone book, alarm is the most important feature to me on a phone; anything else is an added bonus!
@Stuart - thanks for the info - does make me happy !
Just got one as well...
...and the only thing that annoys me is that the screen seems prone to scratching. I've had it a week and there are already a couple of irritating hairline screapes which it's picked up from sharing my pocket with some fluff.
Other than that, I'm with Stuart (above) - my last few phones have been SE and I've been more than delighted with them, but this little beauty is nice.
