Nokia 6220 Classic candybar phone

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

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

One downside to in-phone GPS though is the battery life issue – Nokia reckons the phone will work for 4 hours with GPS mapping before a recharge is needed, so anyone thinking of using it heavily for driving should get hold of an in-car charger. Incidentally, the A-GPS system provides a neat extra for the phone’s imaging capabilities – geotagging of images, so you can capture positioning metadata with pictures for the exact location where a snap was taken.

Imaging is, of course, one of the 6220 classic’s headline attractions. It’s possible to get excellent imaging results with the main 5-megapixel camera. Its set-up is similar to top-snapping Nseries models like the N82, featuring Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon flash for decent low-light shooting.

Its performance isn’t far away either. Results were impressive – the camera can produce a fine level of detail and excellent colour rendition, and has a responsive auto metering system and auto focus set-up. Low-light shooting is better than average, too, thanks to the powerful and precise illumination offered by the effective flash.

The autofocus system, using a 2-step shutter button on the side to lock on to subjects before shooting, works smartly enough, and can be set for macro mode for close ups. There’s a decent selection of settings adjustments you can make too, if you prefer to override the automatic levels.

The usual selection of timer, multi-shots and effects are included, plus the option to do a bit of post-shot tweaking. As mentioned, you can upload snaps and video clips online to a selection of supported sharing sites too.
