Nokia 6220 Classic candybar phone

This mild-mannered mobile is secretly...Super Phone

Video calling is featured, too, with a secondary camera perched above the display, while anyone looking to shoot some home video will welcome its better than average VGA recording capability at 30 frames per second, plus TV Out facility.

Naturally, memory card expansion is supported; the phone has a slot in the side for MicroSD cards to supplement the 120MB of onboard user memory, and can take MicroSDHC cards with up to 8GB of storage capacity.

Nokia 6220 Classic

Memory card expansion is supported

The 6220 classic’s design will hardly get the fashionista set drooling – it’s a straightforward, conventional looking candybar. However, from other models such as the 6300, Nokia knows that unfussy sells.

When you consider the features packed inside this phone, though, the outer casing is a disappointment. It has a cheap, plasticky feel, with the glossy front panel buttonry a bit creaky under your fingers. Softkeys aren’t as responsive to the touch as we’d like, either, although the smooth numberpad is fine, if not the slickest, for texting.

A large central navigation D-pad takes care of most movement around the menus. Nokia’s S60 ‘squiggle’ main menu key flanks it on a slightly raised key nestled between the call button and one of the softkeys. These are close together, but in our tests, we had few mis-pressing problems. Some larger-thumbed users may find it more awkward, however.
