Nokia 6120 Classic Review
In a nutshell: A classically designed 3G smartphone. It's the
lightest and most compact smartphone available, and probably the easiest
to use. Equipped with 3.5G for fast web browsing and downloads, this
phone is smart enough to do most things you could ask of a phone. Available
in black, white or pink.
Review: August 2007.
The 6120 Classic is a classic-looking Nokia finished with attractive
chromed highlights (available in black, white and pink). It's a slimline
phone with a large screen, and an easy-to-use keypad and 5-way navigation
key. Like the very popular 6300, it gives
the impression of an old-fashioned Nokia (which is a good thing) as
if the company has learned some lessons and is getting back to what
it used to do so well - making great phones that do just what you want.
However, looks can be deceiving, because this is no bog-standard Nokia,
but a 3G Symbian smartphone. In fact it's the lightest and probably
the most compact smartphone available, and the most mainstream one too.
The 6120 Classic is a high-spec device, outstripping the Nokia
N73 in some respects. The first thing that we note when examining
the phone is the display. This is a very high quality display with an
amazing 16 million colours and a very high resolution of 240 x 320 pixels.
However, this does mean that fonts are small, and anyone whose eyesight
isn't as good as it used to be may well struggle with this phone. The
camera is rated at 2 megapixels and is nothing special, but the 6120
Classic does also support video calling. The 3G is a fast (so-called
3.5G) HSDPA implementation, enabling download speeds several times faster
than normal 3G.
The 6120 Classic is equipped with a music player that can handles all
of the common formats - MP3, M4A, eAAC+, and WMA - and there's a built-in
FM radio too. Audio quality is good, especially when using the Nokia
Stereo Headset HS-47 supplied. With an internal memory of 35 Mbytes,
you can store half a dozen songs, but the memory can be expanded to
2 Gbytes with a microSD
card, giving the phone the same capacity as an iPod Nano.
One new feature that appears in the 6120 is Text-to-speech. This lets
the phone read your text messages and emails out loud. Could be handy
if the fonts are too small to read!
As well as being 3G enabled, the 6120 Classic is quadband, so you should
be able to use it on any network anywhere in the world. Connectivity
is Bluetooth 2.0 and USB, but not infrared. The battery life of the
6120 is below average, and you'll probably need to recharge every couple
of days, depending on usage.
The only problems that we can see with the 6120 Classic are the small
font size and the below-average battery life. Apart from these two issues,
the 6120 Classic is a beautiful smartphone, and a much more satisfying
phone to use than most of the Nseries phones. It's neat, it's smart
and we like it!
Features of the Nokia 6120 Classic include:
- 3G with video calling and high-speed 3G (HSDPA)
- Symbian S60 3rd Edition user interface
- 2 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and flash
- Video camera
- Display: TFT, 16 million colours, 240 x 320 pixels (2 inches)
- Music player (MP3, eAAC+, and WMA formats)
- FM radio
- Nokia Stereo Headset HS-47 included in sales package
- 64-voice polyphonic ringtones / MP3 & AAC ringtones
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, email with attachments
- Voice dialing / Voice commands
- Text-to-speech: let your phone read your text messages, multimedia
messages, and emails out loud
- Voice recorder
- Memory: 35 Mbytes plus microSD memory card slot (expandable to 2
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.0, USB mass storage
- Quadband (EGSM 850/900/1800/1900) plus 3G (WCDMA/HSDPA 850/2100)
- Size: 105 x 46 x 15 mm
- Weight: 89g
- Talktime: 2.4 hours (3G) - 3.1 hours (2G)
- Battery standby: 9 days

Reviewed by rob from london on 15th Mar 2008
When i first got this phone i was so suprised at how small and light
it was. The camera/vedeo recorder and battery life are also suprisingly
good. The download speeds on the web are outstanding and are comparable
to broadband speeds. When playing music out loud, the sound is very
good and can get very loud if you want it too. Typing numbers/texting
is also very satisfying, even though the keys are quite small. There
are only three bad points: it has no wifi (understandable considering
its low price and how slim it is compared with other 3G phones), the
phone case can become susceptible to fingerprints and markings and the
'menu' and 'C' buttons are quite hard to press quickly as they are on
the very edge and you have to end up using a finger nail instead of
the tip of your finger. Overall this phone is 100% worth the money,
as it isn't a very expensive phone and the slightly annoying points
about this smartphone are heavily outweighed by the good points.

Does what it says on the tin For such a small handset this phone is
packed with high quality features such as the screen quality and ability
to surf fairly flawlessly (for a phone) - I have tried smartphones on
orange years ago and they were poor with many O/S issues and system
faults, constantly locking. This 6120c was a pleasant relief after previous
smartphones and more recently a simple V3 Razor. The Razor was disapointing
and on purchase 3 or so years ago i was promised many features and apps
(such as msn), would be compatible but they werent. I wont buy Motorolla
again and have apart from the Orange smart phones i had been a pure
Nokia user. This unit is a valued tool: Its feature packed - cute but
understated in styling - lightweight - versatile and seems very reliable
- I had never heard of a Nokia 6120 and bought it second hand off a
friend for £30 odd when my V3 failed!! I didnt even know it was a smartphone
i just liked it becuase it weighed nothing... Best money i spent in
ages - i realise i have had a bargain with it but have also seen them
on Ebay from £70 - £30 aprox.... still well worth the money.. I put
in the memory card from the V3. If u want a light phone that you forget
is in your pocket; that is reliable well thought out and user friendly,
(In the vain of oldskool Nokia's), with a decent net bandwidth and many
useful features go for it - Its a baby symbian - Blackberry it aint,
and it dosent pretend to be an i phone - as i said it does what it says
on the tin - Its a little tiny wolf in sheeps clothing - impressive

The hardware and software are both excellent, I am using a 4GB microSD
card that only cost £14 including delivery from Amazon, so you can easily
get as much memory space as an N95 if you want. The phone is as powerful
as your desktop computer was 10 years ago (369MHz, 64MB RAM) so it can
run games and applications very fast. The only thing stopping it from
getting ***** is the battery life - with 3G switched on, my battery
was lasting less than one day. Perhaps battery technology is not really
ready for 3G yet (so said Apple vis-a-vis the iPhone).

Reviewed by Tom from UK on 15th Feb 2008
Its the perfect first-time smartphone, whilst not losing anything to
disapoint the experienced smartphone users. The best summary would be
that it is a smaller version of the N95. Yes it gets hot, but not as
quickly as people suggest. I would say that you would have to be on
a call for about 30 mins before you start to really notice the heat
for it to bother you, then there is the invention of the loudspeaker
to keep the conversation going. The other suggested problem is the battery.
Yes it is below standard on a normal phone, however it is about normal
with other smartphones and is good enough to last you a day of heavy
usage, or a few days of light usage. I personally have bought a bluetooth
gps device and bought tomtom navigator 6 to run on the mobile, which
when also connected to my hands-free kit on my car, makes the whole
thing work exactly the same as a built in sat nav, whilst at the same
time stops me having to carry a large sat nav unit round with me. I
also take advantage of the HSDPA (3.5g) connection and use my mobile
as a modem for my laptop on the go. Allowing me broadband access wherever
I go. I shant mention any other features as they have either already
been mentioned in the main review. Just one other thing. The mobile
phone market is a rapidly changing market, so whatever you do, DONT
tie yourself in to an 18 month contract with this phone. Especially
as its available on pay as you go for £80, therefore you could get it
on pay as you go, then get a much better sim-only contract for a lower
Reviewed by Y from Australia on 11th Feb 2008
I was given this phone as a gift and have had it back to the store twice
already as it gets incredibly hot when you talk, even after a few minutes.
Apparently that's what you get with an LCD screen on a slimline phone.
Whatever, it's a big design fault which unbelievably Nokia acknowledge
and expect customers to just deal with. It's not always convenient to
have a headset or Bluetooth connected as Nokia advises, do they actually
quality assess these things before they put them out?

An excellent phone, have been using it for a couple of months now. Great

use google maps etc - and the google maps Mylocation feature), hook
it up to a laptop and its a speedy modem. even the open office software
has been useful to edit spreadsheets on the go. Music player works great,
even played through the speaker the sound is decent. you will have to
buy a micro sd card for it if you want to load on more then the onboard
32mb. camera is good - has a flash, but dont expect pro photos in the
dark. in good light takes a decent pic. excellent connectivity, works
with my bluetooth headsets, voicedialling and all. connects via a standard
micro usb connection to PC's. is light and looks great. screen and back
can pick up fingerprints. it does heat up when using it but its not
a problem. my one issue with it is battery life could be better - if
you use it, recharge every day. oh - and within the first couple of
days, had to switch for a new one (3 were helpful) as one of the nav
keys stopped working. no other probs.

Had this phone just a day or two, a contract upgrade, and already I'm
very happy with it. It's small and light, has a great screen and is
packed with features. I use my phone mainly for calls/texts and email,
and I travel abroad a lot. For this it's perfect - quadband, with EDGE
and 3G and HSDPA, it's great for web/data stuff. Seems very nippy with
no slow menus. And of course it has great Nokia menus that seem to have
*everything* covered - whether it was setting it to automatically retrieve
my email every half hour, or setting default access points for java
apps - whatever it is, it seems you can mess with it. I did notice that
it gets pretty warm around the screen area once you've been talking
for more than 5 minutes, but it doesn't bother me particularly, it certainly
wasn't uncomfortable. You can always switch off 3g in the network settings
and I've heard that stops it from warming up(?). Battery life is not
great, but it's not diabolical either. Should go a couple of days per
charge with average use. Camera seems fine in daylight, not up to the
best sony ericsson etc (but this phone a ton more features than those)
but still useful if you just want to take a quick snap. The flash is
fairly worthless though. Overall, I'm very pleased with this phone.
I wanted the E51, which has better battery life, is slimmer and has
WIFI, and I thought this might be a duffer. But I was really impressed
with the feature set and the small size. If what really bothers you
is the mp3 player and camera or the looks (this is pretty plain), and
you dont care about EDGE or HSDPA or quadband etc, you may as well get
something else, because there are better multimedia phones at this price.
But if you want something with top notch connectivity at at a good price,
you can't beat this phone.

The phone itself it a great little phone that slim and fits easily in
most pockets and so to begin with is pleasant to have around. Yes the
buttons are small but what can you expect when you buy a small phone
- cant have it all ways in life! Two issues with the phone are firstly
I agree it does get hot after a few minutes, much more than any phone
I've had in the past. The big problem however is I am now on my 3rd
6120 in a month because of the speaker. I have discobvered that when
you put the phone on silent(using your power on/off button) and then
turn it back on to general the speaker doesnt always like to work. When
you recieve a call and answer the caller cant hear you, when you make
a call, their phone rings but you actually dont hear it ringing on your
phone. To resolve the issue you need to turn the phone off and on again
which in 2007 simply isnt acceptable. This phone has done the same and
so Im heading back to the 3 store this week.

The browsing speed is execellent and goes from good to very fast depending

The phone very small (for portability) is very easy to use, even with
one hand only, even in poor lighting eg car at night. Having come from
a very basic phone, I find this phone 'out of this world'. Recommend
it wholeheartedly particulary with T-Mobile 'Web n Walk' which is an

Mother of God! What a pile of excrement. Got this as an upgrade from
the 6151 and it's awful. Keeps rebooting and asking me to insert the
sim card. Oh sure it does all sorts, and would probably drive your car
if you asked it to, but whats the point when it blocks you making calls
and fails to send texts?! The more pointless cack they put on mobiles-Adobe
Acrobat anyone?!-the more thats bound to mess up. To hell with it. I'm
going back to my 6151. I'd use my 8210 but it weeps when I try to put
in a 3 sim card. 6120? Balls!!

the phone is great. Easy to use compact and light. The only bad point
is the battery life! About half0hour if you go on line! And it gets
very hot too! I droped mine in the bath, afta a day or two to dry out
it worked perfectly again! Best nokia in years.

The phone is quite neat and the applications etc are great but the phone
just gets far too hot when you're talking on it. I really can't use
it anymore, bright red, burning ears and cheeks are not good! I'm going
to get this changed for a flip phone I think.

I love this phone. This is only the 3rd phone I've really liked. The
1st one being the 3315, very easy to use and basic. Then the 2112, once
again very easy to use and just a basic CDMA, everything I wanted just
in a phone they both were. And now this 6120 is just everything I wanted,
an MP3 player, a decent camera, excellent screen, even with a half-decent
internal speaker, and best of all, still very easy to use, though I'll
admit occasionally I get lost with all the features, good one Nokia!

This phone is fantastic. I got it yesterday after wating 2 months and
it was well worth the wait. It is the smallest and most compact smart-
phone and a beautiful phone with great features such as text-to-speech,
bluetooth, music player GPS and much more. The audio quality is really
clear and the picture is brilliant. The phone is small and fits perfectly
in my pocket. The camera is a lot beter than I expected it to be. I
was going to buy the samsung U700 but changed my mind after reading
the reviews and I think this phone is much better. The only down side
is that the earphones dont really fit in my ear but the volume can go
really loud on the phone so you dont really need the earphones. I am
really pleased with this phone its got everything you need and more.
If you are thinking of buying it dont have any second thoughts it is
GREAT. Im giving it a 5, well done Nokia.

I would have rated it 5 if it wasn't for the heat issue as it gets quite

Very small - The smallest device I ever had. Very easy to use and although
the keys are small they are organized so good I have no problem managing
it only writing long messages can be annoying. The navigation frame
is useful even for my large fingers. Great display with fonts I can
only read using my reading glasses - it's a small price to pay and it
allows me the enjoy the great hirez screen without compromising on large
device size or low resolution display. It's got ALL the latest features
you can ask for with only one missing - the WiFi.

Pros: Fast for a Symbian phone, compact, good looking (but the black
one does show finger marks easily), HSDPA (3.5G), some good 3rd party
Symbian apps available. Cons: Camera is awful (compared with other 2mp
phone cameras) especially indoors, short battery life, gets really hot
when you're talking/browsing.

- The good: Excellent display. Faster than most other S60 phones. Talk
time: Nokia says 3h, in real life it's close to 4h. Nokia says it supports
SD cards up to 2 GB. In real life, it also works with 4 GB cards. -
The bad: Can't charge over USB port SD card cover requires long fingernails.
The black plastic is a fingerprint magnet. The processor gets warm -
The ugly: The camera takes blurry pictures and is useless indoors and
at night. You need to install cCam to take pictures without the annoying
shutter sound. cCam: www.symbian-freeware.com/download-ccam.html

Absolutely love it!!!! I have just purchased this phone brand new sim
free for under £180. It is small, compact and lightweight. The phone
is such a joy to use and anyone who gives this phone a bad review simply
does not understand the series 60 3rd edition software. This phone has
arrived on the market without any fanfares and all singing and dancing
adverts and i feel that this phone is NOKIA'S best kept secret. For
the price and what you actualy get is absolutely amazing. WELL DONE

Speedy, beautiful phone with a chock full of features and power. But
all of this comes at a price. This phone has a tendency to actually
get very warm, even hot, after only a few minutes on a call. If you
are not too keen on using a bluetooth headset all the while, this may
be a deal breaker.
