Best buy: Nokia 6120 Classic from Amazon Marketplace UK (£65.00)

 

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!


Nokia 6120 Classic features 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 Gbytes)
  • 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

This is the best phone I have ever had. The short battery life is the only weakness of Nokia 6120. I have used it for 3 years and as I didn't use it with enough care unfortunately it is starting to have several problems now. I wish I had treated the phone properly, because it has now been about 6 months that I've been trying to find a replacement, and it seems like there is no other phone that could be as good as my little 6120 and I am devastated that this is not available anymore to buy.

In 2011 (that is it) I'm still using th 6120c without big problems. I said "big" cause I can't run the SmartMovie app anymore and I don't know why, despite of my attempts of reinstalling the firmware using OVI. But it is ok. Great phone with long life components. I'm vigorously using it for 2 years now, including listening to music while I take my bath. This 6120c is supporting all the steam without complaining (up to now at least). This is not recommended, I know, and don't do that guys. But, as long as it stands, it will take baths running my favorite songs. We are in 2011, I work with computers and I'm aware of all the tech around, but this little 6120 keeps supplying all I need, except WI-FI. Nothing is perfect, but it worth every penny spent.

This phone really is amazing, the fact that i'm writing a review of it, on it is evidence of really how great this mobile is at internet browsing and tons of other stuff. I'm on the Three network on contract and it is brilliant in every way. Can't fault it. Although we can't get 3G coverage at our house we have an EDGE mast down the road so we get still some awesome speeds. Where is phone really stands out though is when you step into a 3G zone. It is so quick at loading eBay that if you blink then you miss it! And you can watch YouTube download some really heavy files (800 MB movies) in a matter of minutes. I'm on an unlimited data tariff and that is recommended for this phone or you can run up a bill as it does automatically download emails and news and app updates off the network which can use up some data. Three give you unlimited data for £5 which is a really good deal compared to o2's £15 bolt on and other networks. The processor is really fast, fast enough for even the most impatient person. The only problem I have is the small amount of memory which comes up with a message 'memory full, close some applications' much too often. This is because you can really multitask with this phone, you can switch inbetween apps at the touch of a button. Apart from this ao outstanding phone!

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.

I THINK THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST FASCINATING PHONES I EVER SEEN. LET'S START WITH THE LOOK, NOKIA'S 6120 CLASSIC IS AN OK LOOKING PHONE BUT IF YOU ADD ANY SCIN FROM THREE IT WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST LOOKING PHONES THERE IS. ME FOR EXAMPLE, I WOULD PUT A BIOHASARD SCIN AND I AM SHURE I WOULD BE DELIGHTED. SCINS FROM THREE ARE JUST £7.78 PER SCIN.THE SCREEN IS A NORMAL SIZED 240x320 BUT IT HAS AN ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING 16 MILLION COLOURS! IT HAS A 2 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA WITH FLASH, AND IT'S AS GOOD AS A SONY ERICSSON'S K800i'S 3.2 MEGAPIXEL CYBERSHOT CAMERA AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE PHOTOS ON A PC IT IS CLEAR THAT THERE ISN'T THAT MUCH DIFFERENCE. IT ALSO HAS A SECOND VGA CAMERA IN RONT SO YOU CAN TAKE PICTURES OF OURSELF JUST LIKE IN ANY FLIP STYLE PHONE BUT BECAUSE THE SCREEN IS SO GREAT YOU COULD USE IT LIKE A SMALL MIRROR! ITS BATTERY IS GOOD AND LASTS FOR 9 DAYS. ITíS SPEAKER IS VERY LOUD AND QUALITY WHICH IS WHAT YOU ALWAYS EXPECT FROM A GOOD QUALITY NOKIA L IKE THIS ONE.IT HAS A VERY GOOD MUSIC PLAYER WHITCH SUPPORTS THESE FORMATS - MP3, M4A, eAAC+, and WMA. WMA IS A FORMAT USED ON THE CDíS AND THE COMPUTERS RECORD IN THIS FORMAT ASWELL. IT HAS 35MB INTERNAL PHONE MEMORY AND AFCOURSE YOU CAN BUY A MICRO SD 2GB CARD WHITCH IS ENOUGH IF YOUR A NORMAL PERSON. IT HAS A BRILLIAND SOUND RECORDER WHITCH RECORDS IN WAVE FORMAT, NOW THATíS BRILLIANT. THE SPEAKERS ARE VERY LOUD INDEED AND VERY HIGH QUALITY. INTERNET IS VERY FAST AND YOU HAVE EMAIL. THE PHONE CONTAINS APPLICATIONS SUCH AS - SKYPE WHITCH IS FREE TO CALL IF YOURE ON THREE, EBAY FOR SHOPPING AND SELLING, GOOGLE MAIL, GOOGLE MAPS, GOOGLE SEARCH, MOBILEMAIL, YAHOO, YAHOO MESSENGER, YAHOO GO, WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER WHITCH IS ASWELL FREE TO USE IF YOURE ON THREE AND FINALLY SLINGBOX, NOW THIS IS A VERY USEFUL AND EXCTING APPLICATION WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO WATCH WHATEVER YOU ARE WATCHING ON YOUR PC BUT YOU NEED TO CONNECT A USB CABLE FOR THAT, AND THE REALLY GOOD THING IS THAT YOU CAN RECORD THOSE CLIPS VITH QUALITY. IT HAS AN OPERATING SYSTEM v3.70. THIS PHONE'S FEATURES ARE - FM RADIO, JAVA, LOUDSPEAKER WHEN MAKING OR RECEAVING CALLS, VIDEO CALLS WITH IT'S SECOND VGA CAMERA WHITCH IS AT THE FRONT, WAP BROWSER (JUST A POSH NAME FOR INTERNET), AND THE MUSIC PLAYER.THIS IS MY FAVOURITE PHONE, I THINK IT'S THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY AND IT'S JUST AN EXITING AND NICE PHONE TO HAVE. TO SUM UP I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS PHONE!

We use the 6120 with Bluetooth connection in Health Shuttles driven by elderly retired volunteers. Today it wouldn't work. Someone had switched it to "Silent". Despite most of us being Nokia users, not one of us was able to find any menu item that enabled us to make it "Loud" again. We'd love to go back to our old ones that all work like our own old Nokias that let us send texts and talk to people. We all hate this model with so many features that you can't work out how to use it for the basics. I've brought the CD_ROM home to study and see what we should have done. I even had to be told there was a slim button at the extreme left to get the Menu. It didn't look like a button.

I have not bought this phone, but I thought that I should warn people before they buy it that the power level it gives out when holding it at the ear is extremely high for a mobile phone. Yes still in the legal safety limits, but if you are one who beleives in cancer risks caused by phone signals, then I would stay away from this phone. It gives out 1.18 W/Kg when holding it at the ear, the average for most handsets is 0.5 W/Kg. Comparatively the N97 gives out 0.6 W/Kg at the ear, despite being a lot more powerful. This shows that the 6120 is giving out far too much power than it should be, explaining why so many people have problems with the handset heating up and burning their ears. It's a shame as this phone looks really good, and I really wanted to buy it as it is great value for money, but I don't really want to risk using a phone that gives out twice the average amount of power, possibly causing twice the damage to my health.

This is the worst mobile phone that i have ever ued in my life. Let me run you through why: 1)Battery life is extremely bad, so not good for business or music lovers 2)The screen, after about 3/4 months, you start to notice the dust starting to creep in through the top speaker. This becomes very annoying so commiting to an 18month contract with this mobile was the worst decision ive made 3)After 6 months the feeble plastic navigation pad broke. A whole chunk of the keypad fell out So navigating to the left was incredibly annoying as i had to stick my fingernail through the keypad to navigate. So for the next 12 months there were no gaming apps open on my phone 4)The speaker provides a shockingly bad base and is often fuzzy 5)The software is very glitchy as this mobile was regarded as the test one for the Nseries S60 edition software 6)The onboard RAM is average..could do with more. E.g cant play music and use nokia maps at the same time 7)Calls are often dropped and do not connect all the time (on three..which is also shocking for service and quality generally) 8)The back cover is made of poor quality plastic which i have currently sellotaped to my battery so that it wont fall off. Tried using a plastic cover but when you use the key pad you are only able to use your fingernails which over a few months erode the plastic which then finally rips and renders useless 9)The mobile often overheats when using 3G which becomes annoying over time as your hand gets very hot and you start to wonder why the battery life is so poor. 3G is imperative on three. 10)Streaming quality is half decent but the speaker never compliments it well or the dusty screen. 11)Due to rudimentary software the mobile often blanks out often. 12)Every so often when the mobile feels like it, the T9 memory is wiped 13)Due to the shocking software, when you receive a text the mobile does not vibrate, or notify you by leaving a message symbol on the standby. The only way to resolve this was to HARD reset my mobile.(This entails wiping the mobile clean fully). Time consuming... Whereas this looks good on paper, i suggest you try this mobile out before buying it.If you like using apps, love your music, and expect to be able to send a text and make a call propperly DO NOT BUY THIS MOBILE.

Great phone only problem is that it starts heating up after a five minute call. If your on the phone for fifteen minutes you have to keep swapping sides as your ears as start getting hot. Several other people i know with the 6120 experiance the same thing.

Extremely poor experience with this phone. I received it free on an 18 month contract from T-Mobile who have kindly replaced the handset 4 times. The first handset worked for less than a month until the speaker broke and was rendered mute. The second phone froze the first time I switched it on and would repeatedly reset itself mid phonecall or even just picking it up to check a text message. The phone was sent back to T-mobile who updated the software. This one crashed when they turned it on in the shop to put my sim card back in. I received a second hand 6120 in replacement which I complained about and promptly I received another one. Unfortunately my requests for a different phone have not been fulfilled and so I have had to live with the self destructive mess that Nokia have made. I am near the end of my contract now and am strongly considering purchasing another phone due to continuing erratic behaviour. Over the last few weeks the phone has taken to adding email inboxes every time I check a message. I have over 200 now which has slowed the phone down immensely. Finding a way through the menus is irritating (they cannot be configured with the Nokia software) and each one takes just under 4 minutes to remove. The phone now just refuses to show my mailbox when I receive a message. T-mobile have always been helpful but I expect a service that works and it just doesn't.

Excellent phone. Bought it 2 Weeks back. tested 3G, GPRS, Voice Calls and most of the other features. works well. I dropped the phone yesterday, but its working well so far. The Camera Quality is good. (not the best though), and video is BEST i must say !! sound Quality is also superb. the phone is fast when compared with other smart phones. the 2 things u should worry are 1. The phone gets slightly heated when u're in a call. 2. The Battery life is not satisfactory. Other than that, its a super phone. u have lots of features (its a smart phone too) for a cheaper price ($220). I'm loving this phone !!! :)

Good phone when it works! I'm on my second one from 3 and it has been back for repair too. Still unreliable. If it's cold it shuts down and it seems to struggle to pick up any signal outside of town. It's good looking, compact and easy to use but I can't wait until I get shot of it I'm afraid. As a footnote: My mate has the same phone and the same problems.

Why is it a problem if the fonts are small? The fact is this is a Symbian smartphone which enables third party software providers to bring solutions to all manner of needs and, in this case, large font screen solutions.

This phone has lasted me over a year, and i really liked it. Only problems i have is to do with the network, three. The 3.5g coverage thingy isn't working in most areas, the connection is kinda slow at times, and reception can be pretty bad. Other than that, this phone is bril, camera is ok-ish. Oh and another thing, the phone casing can get scratched easily, so you gotta be really careful where you put it. Best to keep it in a mobile pouch to be honest. My screen cracked yesterday though, sadly. I dropped it on a marble floor :( im looking for a new phone, something even better perhaps, with 3.6g rather than 3.5 :)

It's a computing powerhouse hiding in a "dumb"-phone's package. The S60 system offers some nice features for people meaning business, like an awesome organizer and contact manager - I have hard time calling it just a phonebook. It's also prety decent on the fun department: its media player and camera do their job, even though they don't match ones found in more youth-oriented models. The display isn't an HD panel, but for a cellphone the picture quality is excellent. Pros: excellent sound quality, reception quality in the best Nokia traditions, blazingly fast data transmit rates for Web. Cons: battery life could be longer, gets hot when you talk for longen-than-average time, some people may not like the keyboard. Bottom line: a fine phone, offering superb performance in a small package for a relatively low price.

My dad had this phone for a while, and I guess I have to say I simply loved it! It had EVERYTHING that I needed [being a teen]. However, my rather tech-unsavvy dad found most of the features redundant. But a few of the things I liked most were: - The ability to take shots with the front camera - Light - Sleek design [although a fingerprint magnet] - Good sound quality - Big screen I definitely would recommend it. I would say that it's better than my W960, except for the lack of Wifi connectivity.

I have had this phone for a year now and frankly will be glad to finally get rid of it soon for a number of reasons. Other reviewers are right - you cannot talk on this phone for more than a minute before the screen gets very hot and uncomfortable, so if you are thinking of using this phone for long calls then forget it unless you want a red hot ear! It might just be a problem with my phone but I the sound quality on calls is terrible. I can hardly hear what people are saying when they call - which means that for 12 months now my friends have had to shout at me down the phone and I have had to press the red hot screen even harder to my ear - nightmare! Also although the keys are easy to use the navigation button in the middle has a skinny hard edge which means that it kills your thumb if you text a lot. As previously mentioned the text size is very small and so if you have bad eyesight then its best avoided. In addition I never hear the thing ringing even though the volume is up high. As also mentioned the battery life is very, very poor. Especially as I don't use it for anything more than the odd call and mainly for texting. On the positive side it looks good and navigation is very simple to use.

SMART phone - does the business! - just dont expect to be able to do anything other than the basics unless you get a memory card as the internal memory is just hopeless and you'll soon be having to close all your apps to carry on doing something else. Battery can be annoying but who hasnt got a charger with them somewhere these days.

I would highly recommend this phone if you are browsing the web as speeds are fast. It has all the general Nokia menu options and the themes to choose from are quite nice. The reception is great and it is faster moving through the menu than my previous N70. Some of the things I don't like are the keypad as the keys click as you use them. In fact this has made me change to another phone as it is annoying and it's a shame as other features on the phones are excellent. Another thing I have noticed that on a longer call you do get a burning sensation. My family has four of these phones and two out the the four simply stopped working for no reason. The phones did not ring and when answered you could hear the caller but they couldn't hear me. Overall, a great phone but anyone who texts alot may find the keypad annoying.

Several problems with this phone. 1) Mine too goes completely blank and has to be rebooted. 2) Within 3 months of getting the phone it developed a fine line across the screen that shows up in all photos. Needless to say this is not covered by some warrantee. 3) (BIG PROBLEM) Unfortunately Nokia has not bothered to devise a program for allowing for daylight saving time for all Australian zones for this phone. Unlike many other Nokia phones there is no 'override' in the clock settings so that you can fix this problem yourself. I have been assure by Nokia that they are 'working on this problem', but several weeks on me (and the rest of Australia) are still waiting! Until they do write a program, the best you can do is change the time to an hour ahead manually, and then enter all calendar information manually. There is not point in changing the clock manually and then trying to synchronise with Outlook as all your appointments will still be an hour out.
