Nokia 6070 review

 Review: September 2006  

Last updated November 2006

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: The Nokia 6070 is a very basic camera phone.

Today's best buy: Nokia 6070 - VGA Camera - Vi ... from Amazon (£0)



The design of the 6070 is simple, with a good sized square keypad and not too much to go wrong. It looks like a brick, but a very small and lightweight brick!

Feature-wise, the 6070 doesn't give you much for your money. There's a camera and video camera, but these are really only toys. The display is also rather poor and hard to read in bright light. Although the phone supports MP3 ringtones, there's no MP3 player, however there is a stereo FM radio. The ringtones are rather poor quality too - don't expect too much just because they're MP3 format. Memory is very small - just 3.2 Mbytes of user memory, so you won't be able to store many pictures or videos. There are better entry-level camera phones than this: consider the Sony Ericsson K310i or the Motorola L6 instead. The 6070 has now been upgraded to the Nokia 6080.

Nokia 6070 features include:

How do I print the photos on a Nokia 6070?

Asked by Deborah from England on 24th Feb 2016
My dad has some photos on his 6070.Had it years. Sadly we have not been able to print them.Really desperate as would like to do it for Fathers Day.Can you please, please let me know how we go about it? Many thanks.

Reply by S21 from UK on 24th Feb 2016
Hi Deborah, the Nokia 6070 has an old pop-port connector that can be used to transfer data via USB. The first thing you'll need is a pop-port to USB cable, so you can connect it to a PC or laptop. The old pop-port connections were prone to collect dust and dirt, and this may be a problem for you.

If you still have the phone's original packaging, there should be a CD-ROM with the Nokia PC suite, USB drivers and any other software needed for your computer to recognise the phone. You will need to install this on your PC in order to be able to read the data on the phone. This could be tricky, as the Nokia software is probably designed for an old version of Windows like Windows XP.

This is all quite tricky, so perhaps there is a local independent PC repair or phone guy who could do this for you?

I bought Nokia 6070 almost 10 years back when I was working in Dubai. Battery lasted 9 years. Replaced one year ago. I have used very carefully and still looks new. Now my son gifted me Blackberry smartphone. I wish to transfer all the data including photos. I was not supplied with any cable etc. Please assist.

I got this for my 7 year old son, mostly so i could contact him. It broke 5 years later (In 2010/11 Winter) when he slipped on some ice and his phone was in his back pocket of his jeans so it smashed. He slipped into a puddle aswell... BUT, yep you guessed it, it still works. Its a hardy phone, but a rubbish one at that. It's a waste of 39.99. I should of waited a year and got him a iPhone 1. I can't even get O2 recycle it it so out of date.

I've had my Nokia 6070 for four years now. Great speaker, solid as a brick, dropped it loads of times, never broke. Silver paint scraping off now, but still great for basic texts and phone calls, very robust, good battery life, cheap to use. Not great memory for photos and videos but was v. cheap when purchased all those years ago, so can't complain.

Nokia 6070. I still have this art of engineering at home. If I could compare menu with another nokia phones for a lower budget no doubt this model would be a winner. Sadly Nokia corp. stopped mass production of this phone, my Nokia 6070 is more than 4 years old but still the battery keeps well, sound quality fine, keybooard works fine and easy replaceable. I don't understand Nokia priorities and why did they stopped Nokai 6070 production ;(

Reviewed by Dora from UK on 18th Mar 2010
I think it's a good phone, especially if you don't expect a super-memory PC-like phone. As it was said by someone on an other site, that's rather a phone. I also miss the bluetooth a bit, but I can get along with the infra too (it works 2 ways on win XP only though...). For me the ringtones are loud enough. Memory isn't too big, true, but you can delete and also copy stuff that you may not need on your phone, like the original pictures. I could send out some pictures, 20-80 kb mp3s and it still has a little space. Just think of what contents you really need to be in the phone's memory (gallery, games). Ironic is that some themes can be sent via infra and can NOT deleted, and some can be deleted, but can NOT be sent via infra (the basic themes, like ripple, apple). But all in all, I like it and it still had no issues since I bought it in 2006, there was only 1 wrong stuff, when the volume button seemed to be stuck in because it got a bit wet. But otherwise no malfunctions happened, and it's almost 3,5 years old by now. I agree that Nokia makes trustworthy telephones, even if their feature-range are not always perfect enough for the users.

Nokia Care tried three times - couldn't fix - lost all our settings and contacts (who doesn't saveit all first!) They replaced phone 1.5yrs ago - still rubbish - cannot connect to PC, getting ringtone errors at random, fails to ring, alarm doesn't go off at random (more than annoying), turns off at random, doesn't record missed calls, random errors hobbling phone.........

However, I just wanted an honest, dependable phone which was comfortable in my hand and easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone who wants the same regardless of age.

A completely worthless piece of junk. The buttons on the first one stopped working after about 6 months, the network and manufacturer were useless. They sent me a new one after much spitting and snarling and parting with more money, now after 6 months the replacement is doing the same and another replacement is on it's way after serious sptting and snarling. The ring is to quiet, it doesn't like working in an outdoor job, the screen is difficult to see in bright light and it is a feeble excuse for a tool and the warranty isn't worth the paper it is written on. I will never buy another nokia phone. Mbile phone manufacturers should stop fobbing us off with useless gadgets like cameras, MP3 players, radios and sat nav and make a phone that acually works, with a decent, cast iron, no quibble warranty. RUBBISH

It's a fine simple phone in almost all respects - except one. My phone randomly dials numbers whilst I'm on the phone. Even when I am not touching it and it is on loudspeaker. I have had it replaced 4 times and repaired once under warranty. It is still faulty. It may sound like a simple problem but every time a number self dials a sound is made making it impossible for the person on the other end of the phone to be able to hear you. I'd love to be able to love this phone as it is quite simple and easy to use in most other respects with enough (simple) bells and whistles. But it just doesn't work.

Very weak build quality. After 3 months of use the plastic parts were peeling off and very easily scratched. Software crashes on a regular basis, often so heavily that you often cannot make calls during its recovery. Camera is very good quality, pity you cannot use it: everytime the slider-cover for the lens is pulled-down, it turns off (a constant software/hardware (?) bug that seems impossible to cure. Service improved it a little, but only for 2 -3 days and again the same story). Very frustrating, as this phone was a present to me, so I couldn't even think of returning it and had to live with its "bad habits". The only good part seems to be that the display glass is very resistent to scratching, as is the metal part of the casing. The plastic bits are totally c..p. The sound quality is rather good, and the keyboard seems solid, but some keys have already started to peel-out ,in spite of only 3 months use.

For camera and music (mp3), you better get real digital camera and ipod. For fm radio, it is better than nothing to listen when get bored. But, I still cannot connect to pc with infra red. Most important, easy to use, working great and user friendly. For basic communication, I give 6070 a good phone to buy!
