Nokia 6125 review
|Review: October 2006|
In a nutshell: The Nokia 6125 is a mid-range camera phone designed to be simple and easy-to-use.
The 6125 seems to include most things you could reasonably expect from a phone in this price range. The spec includes a 1.3 megapixel camera, which takes reasonable quality pictures, although there's no flash. The video camera records at a relatively low resolution and video clips are limited to 5 minutes maximum duration. The main display is nice and sharp, although the resolution is relatively low. The external display isn't that great though, especially in sunlight.
The 6125 includes a stereo music player, with support for MP3, MP4, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+ and WMA formats and also has a stereo FM radio with support for Visual Radio (displays information about the track and artist playing). Connection to an optional Bluetooth stereo headset is possible.
The 6125 lacks internal memory, with just 11 Mbytes in total, but a MicroSD memory card can be added to increase storage of music tracks and other user data. Connectivity is excellent, with Bluetooth 2.0, USB and infrared all available. It's a quadband phone too, so it'll work internationally without any trouble.
Overall, it's a nicely styled phone with a very good feature set. This isn't a high-end phone, so there are some things missing, and it's not an exciting phone to look at (some may say boring), but its a good choice and probably the best mid-range Nokia camera phone currently.
Nokia 6125 features include:
- 1.3 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom

I HAD MY NOKIA 6125 WHICH WAS THE BEST OF THE 5 NOKIA PHONES I HAD TILL DATE... NOW I AM USING N79 HOWEVER, IT IS HOPELESS... NOKIA 6125 IS THE BEST... I WOULD IMMEDIATELY FAVOR NOKIA 6125 IF ANYONE ASKS MY OPINION. IT HAS PLENTY OF GOOD FEATURES & VERY MUCH USEFUL EVEN FOR ROUGH USE. DURABLE & LONG LASTING

You need a MicroSD to exploit its other good features. It is very convenient for general usability. The camera resolution is quite low, and the battery runs out fast. But Overall, a great mobile...

I've had this phone for just over a year and just recently the battery started to die. I can't even turn the thing on now. The ring volume is rather quiet. The camera is rubbish. The music player is average and the vibration alert is nothing short of useless. This phone doesn't have a lot going for it. It also scratches very easily - so don't keep it in the same pocket as your keys!

Reviewed by Magdalena from Norway on 26th Oct
a little bit clumsy, not the best look, but still very useful, I dont understand the complaints about the batteries, cause i can leave it on easilly for a week. The SD-memory works great and also has an adapter that fits my computer. Can hold a lot of music. I would really like to get more comfy headphones than the earplugs. those are painful.
Reviewed by MK Gunaseelan from INDIA on 25th Sep
This shouldn't have been this fat. Camera excellent. Screen should have been bit bigger. Battery runs down fast. Memory too is very less. But support for MicroSD is good. All in all not so impressive.

I have been using this phone since last august. Replaced after one month because it didn't got any antenna signals. The battery has very short talk and standby time, around 4h / >100h. Wery poor sound quality. Changed from Sony Ericsson K700 to Nokia 6125. Have changed now back to Sony Ericsson W810i. I have used few other Nokia phones (6110, 6310i and older) this is the worst of the all (6101 and 6103 is better quality). I'm not sure if I will buy Nokia again after I have tried Sony Ericsson.
