Nokia 6260 review

 Review: October 2004  

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: The Nokia 6260 is a business-orientated smartphone with a range of interesting features.


One of the characteristics of the 6260's clamshell design is the rotating screen which can be rotated to a number of positions - open, closed, facing inwards and facing outwards. The display face can be closed with the screen facing outwards for browsing the internet or using applications.

The screen is very high quality - one of the best from Nokia - using active TFT technology for a sharp bright image, with 65k colours and a high resolution. A good quality screen like this is essential for making good use of the various business applications that come with the phone.

The 6260 is a series 60 phone with a Symbian operating system. Foremost amongst the pre-installed business applications is a mobile email client that uses Quickword and Quickpoint viewers for viewing attachments (Word and PowerPoint documents). Additional Java™ and Symbian applications can be stored, and a pre-loaded memory card is supplied with a number of "try-and-buy" applications.

The internal memory is not huge at 6 Mbytes, but the memory can be expanded with 32 Mbyte memory cards. The 6260 has an excellent range of connectivity options: Bluetooth™, infrared, Pop-Port™ connector and USB.

The 6260 includes a good quality digital camera that can shoot pictures at VGA resolution (300,000 pixels) and also record video. The camera is side-mounted with a movable display that allows for self-portraits. There's also a built-in FM radio and MP3 player, although the MP3 player is mono and not the best quality.

Nokia have succeeded in packing a lot into the 6260, with the clamshell design enabling them to have a large screen but still keep the phone size small. The phone is quite heavy, but no more than the average 3G phone, and this will probably be acceptable when the full range of features is considered. The screen is excellent, the spec of the phone includes everything that most users will need, and the range of Java and Symbian applications available for the phone is impressive. With the Nokia 6260 it seems that it is finally possible to have a business-orientated phone that retains the stylishness and fun features of a mainstream phone.

The 6260 will inevitably be compared with the Sony Ericsson P910i. It has to be said that the P910i beats the Nokia is most respects, however the P910i does cost and weigh considerably more than the 6260, so there should be room in the marketplace for both.

On the negative side, the Nokia 6260 does appear to have software and reliability problems. You should read the user reviews below to find out about people's experiences with this phone, but the main issues seem to be faulty phones, phones breaking and software glitches. It seems that Nokia smartphones often come with reliability problems, especially any like the 6260 that feature novel designs or features.

Nokia 6260 features include:

  • Active TFT rotating display display (65,536 colours, 176 x 208 pixels)
  • Push to Talk (PTT)
  • Mobile email and VPN client
  • HTML browser
  • Quickword and Quickpoint for viewing documents
  • Bluetooth™ wireless technology
  • Additional connectivity: Infrared, Pop-Port™ connector, Nokia Connectivity Adapter cable (USB)
  • Local synchronization of contacts, calendar, to-do items, and notes to a compatible PC using PC Suite
  • Downloadable Java™ and Symbian applications
  • Voice Features: voice dialing, voice commands, voice recorder
  • Integrated handsfree speaker
  • Integrated digital VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels, digital zoom)
  • Video recording and playback
  • FM radio and MP3 player
  • Polyphonic ringtones & True Tones

Bought this mobile NOKIA 6260 in December 2005, from a leading dealer of nokia In connaught Circus New Delhi . There was no trouble with phone till December 2006, however in January 2007, the phone did not accept the simcard and was sent to their work shop In New Delhi for which an amount of Rs.450 was charged but the codition of the phone is as it is still not acceping the SIMCARD. The phone was returned thru, the dealer personnel who referred it to the work shop, where they are demanding more money and it seems the technical personnel sitting at New Delhi Work shop donot know how to rectify the phone and is trying to milk money on this and that pretext. I think such practice by organisation like NOKIA as a international company tarnishes the IMAGE of Company . The phone was sent to HCL INFINET LIMITED 30/28 East Patel Nagar NewDelhi, thru the dealer Narendra stores Connaught Circus New Delhi. It is important to mention here I was advised to change the battry, which had no effects but I had to incur extra cost of Rs, 1350/. My contact No is 91119871037506

VERY POOR DESIGN. if humidity can get into the board.

Well, its not brilliant but it aint bad either. Its not really the features that let it down, its the limited amount of thought that went into the design of it. Firstly, they put the camera on the side so that to use it u have to twist the fone into imaging mode, but, once uve taken the picture, its half the quality of wot it would b in normal mode. How stupid can the designers get, they make a dedicated imaging position but it doesnt take gd pictures. Secondly, the twisty screen is really annoying. it feels really delicate, as if it will break any second and i dont no if this is just me but in browse mode the backlight is really weird and just turns on and off at will and sumtimes when ur browsing through the menu it just automaticlly goes back to the desktop and turns the backlight off. Could sum1 plz confirm this coz it might just b a problem with my 1. Apart from that its a really gd fone. the screen is decent, the OS runs flawlessly, i like the themes(my old 3650 didnt a llow them so it was really boring), the memory is gd and the connectivity options are good. Overall good, but i would recommend waiting 4 the 3G nokias in development.

I've had the phone for about 6 months, and have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand it's packed with great SW and features, it has a nice design, and it's cheap (for a smartphone). On the other hand it's construction quality is poor, sound is poor and booting the phone takes forever. On top of that sometimes it says it doesn't like my SIM card (changed it twice already). Also sometimes it looks like everything's fine (full batterie, good reception), but I cannot receive or make calls. The most essential thing on a phone - making calls - is obviously not this phone's forté. I also bought the nokia bluetooth keyboard, which in turn is quit expensive. And I connect to an Apple PowerBook to sync with Entourage. All of that works like a charm. Haven't figured out how to sync tasks and notes though. Finally I noticed that the paint of some buttons and from the case are peeling off. Hence my comment on build quality. Did I mention slow booth time? Like very very slow? It takes about a minute to show the PIN request, and another 30 sec's after entering the PIN. The old 6310i that's in my car booths in 5 seconds!! I can deal with a longer start-up time, but staring at your phone for 2 minutes in anticipation of making a call is just silly. The 6260 was sold to me for 340 euro's, simfree, no contract. In hindsight I should have paid the extra euro and buy a Palm treo 650 or a SE P910. No need for the extra (bulky) keyboard, obviously better built, and good phones to start with (as in: you can actually call people with it).

this phone is really good but needs an external screen and the camera is in a really dodgy place and there should'nt be the buttons by the screen they should be by the keypad oh well bluetooth and expandable memory make up for it

Reviewed by Rean Kriel from UK on 20th Sep 2005
The phone has a constant hissing sound during a call. It drives my nuts. Nokia eventually replaced the phone with a new 6260, but the hissing sound persists. I'm confident that the phone has an audio design flaw. All other features are fine, apart from the camera taking a picture only a second after the "click" sound.

Reviewed by Mazen .J from UK on 16th Sep 2005
I bought it yesterday and till now it looks and feels good. It’s oriented towards people who will count on it for business, schedules, organizers, that sort of thing. The design is also corporate and stylish though it reminds me of Star Trek communication devices “ Beam me-up Scotty! ”. The standby upward screen position is handy and looks pretty sexy near your Scotch on the bar on a night when someone calls you. I think it’s one of the best looking, software is a bit complicated but not bad, many many features and options. Enjoy.

I have owned this phone for 8 months now. My battery lasts 3 days - and I am a very heavy user. With the USB cable (don't bother with the Infra Red) or the Bluetooth connected to my Laptop, I get a good GPRS connection every time. Call clarity is excellent. What I cannot understand, are all the people slating it's photographic abilities! I am a Photographer by trade. There is one bit of advice I can give to these people - IF YOU WANT TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS BUY A CAMERA! Anybody who thinks they can become David Bailey with their mobile phone is in need of help from men in white coats. And to the person who mentions that it doesn't give delivery reports for text messeges - actually it does. And you CAN see who is calling - unselect the "Answer call on opening fold" option. Do people actually READ manuals anymore? This is an excellent phone that (to use the advert's slogan) does exactly what it says on the tin.

Reviewed by Katt from UK on 5th Aug 2005
I have had the phone for 6 months now. Overall i am really pleased with this phone and very glad that i bought it! The camera is pretty good and the pictures dont appear blurred when trasferred to pc. The video capture isn't bad either - depends on the quality at which it is captured! I haven;t actually succeeded in finding out how to improve the video shooting quality yet!! so any ideas are welcome! The memory is great! option to upgrade. Can store plenty of mp3 tracks and playback isn't bad either! One criticism I do have is of the infra red. It is temperamental at the best of times - sometimes not working at all! As a result have had to resort to buying a USB transfer cable! All in all though an excellent phone and i would recommend you buying it!

I had this phone for 6 months and it is that bad I had to revert back to my 6100 I have finally managed to convince my local store to take it back and give me something else. The menus are fiddly to say the least, the phone is bigger than a brick, you can't see who's calling you, the quality of the speaker is poor, the contacts system is not as easy to use as previous Nokias. For the first time in 10 years I am disappointed with a Nokia phone. I would avoid this like the plague.

I have ordered it and it may be a little bit on the large side and take a while to load up but it is worth all of that with the fetures it has such as Symbian OS and a twisty screen and much much more so don't take any notice of any one else go out and buy it. Again don't take any notice of what any other people say about this phone because if the size and the startup speed is the only thing people can say about this phone then it is a pretty good phone!

I just got my nokia 6260 today. the problem with the phone is that the keys are so stiff and gives pain in your fingers!!! the looks is alright (if you are a large phone lover!!!). too less wallpapers, images installed in the phone otherwise you can download it. I am thinking to take samsung D500 by returning this one. i recommand to go for samsung D500 instead of this.

The OS is great. The signal strength is great. I have the 512mb mmc card, which is great. The camera is below average, the photo is actually taken 1 full second after the "click" sound. The camera being on the side is good. The screen changes according to how the camera is tilted. You can turn it backwards an see yourself in the screen. The software for XP will lock you computer up. Many bugs. Batteries are good for 48 hours with little use. The will go from 3 bars to nothing with heavy use. Could be much thinner. James

I Work for Nokia retail. This phone is Shocking a classic example of trying to cram too many features in to a phone with out the software to manage it. It frequenly frezes and it easily damaged. It also sometimes does not always record missed calls. Though i have found texting to be very easy and the large keys are vary accomdating. My advice is go as simple as possable, so theres no lag and not as much can go wrong. Jack

k well i got this phone cause i thought it was a great looking phone. There is one issue that really bugs me. Well i have a friend whos number i try to save but when i go and save it, it won't save. It will save in the phone book but when she calls it won't show her name. For some reason why is just number some far. I jus hope that its stays that way and when i save someone else on the phone it will be ok. Has anyone ever heard a issue like that before?

Well, its not brilliant but it aint bad either. Its not really the features that let it down, its the limited amount of thought that went into the design of it. Firstly, they put the camera on the side so that to use it u have to twist the fone into imaging mode, but, once uve taken the picture, its half the quality of wot it would b in normal mode. How stupid can the designers get, they make a dedicated imaging position but it doesnt take gd pictures. Secondly, the twisty screen is really annoying. it feels really delicate, as if it will break any second and i dont no if this is just me but in browse mode the backlight is really weird and just turns on and off at will and sumtimes when ur browsing through the menu it just automaticlly goes back to the desktop and turns the backlight off. Could sum1 plz confirm this coz it might just b a problem with my 1. Apart from that its a really gd fone. the screen is decent, the OS runs flawlessly, i like the themes(my old 3650 didnt allow them so it was really boring), the memory is gd and the connectivity options are good. Overall good, but i would recommend waiting 4 the 3G nokias in development.

Outstanding phone. That should summrize all the features of this phone. Great look, great screen. Only two problem I see are hinges and battery (4c). Otherwise there is no need to argu on quality of this phone.

I really like it so far, had phone for a week. Having problems getting email etc to work, being a syncro addict it must talk to my PC. Having difficulty in getting Bluetooth to my USB device. IR is annoyingly not working or haninging up (cannot figure which yet). So, as a phone only and not using the functionality, it's great. Not minding the brick size for the moment but the menu is annoying me as I don't know where to find anything yet..

This is my 2nd review of this phone (See below). I've only had it about a month and it's now faulty, looking at some other reviews seems to be a common theme. Can make calls but I can't send or recieve SMS. MMS doesn't even start, neither does bluetooth, can't get to settings. It has been stroppy once in a while, just requiring it to be restarted - nothing will fix it this time. I even have tried a factory reset and format. So will get it fixed under warranty, though with others experiences I'm a bit worried now. All my previous Nokia's have never had a problem. As for living with it day today, no real change from my previous comments, can live with it but not as useful as it should be with a little thought from the designers. I'm glad some people think it's the best but I question their experience of other phones.

This is a great fone. Ive had it for a month now and it hasnt had a single problem. It does everything i want, the build quality is high and its so damn stylish! Id recommend it to anyone. The only thing im gonna do to it is upgrade the mmc memory card from the standard 32mb to a aftermarket 1gb card. Now who said you needed an iPod??????

Recently I upgraded to a Nokia 6260 It seemed a great answer to a number of problems particularly the UK Hands free driving restrictions. As by reversing the screen and using the Loudspeaker function, it becomes a speakerphone. Sadly this phone is after only 6 weeks a useless pile of junk.It snaps shut and one day the screen sadly was no more. During its short life it has often frozen, needing the battery and sim card removing and replacing to get it to reboot. It has turned itself off without any input from me and it has also taken ages to re-boot. I have asked for help from my nokia/service provider. who tells me its a chargeable repair costing about a £100 - Well the phone is just not worth it. I took some fine once only unreplaceable pictures of my daughter which are now locked in the phone together with a number of essential phone numbers as it downloaded all my data from the sim card into its memory. Once and if I retrieve the data I will quite happily junk this monster.I made a huge mistake buying an all singing all dancing phone. Now My old 6210 without all the frills etcis back in service. It does what its supposed to! Works as a reliable Mobile.

A poor phone. Don't bother. The 6170 looks better. Do not be taken in by the swivel camera. No called id when phone is closed. Keeps turning itself off - many times in the middle of a call. Uses Symbian and is very slow indeed to navigate through menus etc. The size is too big. Wish I had waited for the Motorola Razr V3.

Nokia 6260, good if your a business person lookin for a (not so mini) mini pda. Push to talk and presence are relatively new products, no one i know has them, but then again they are premium services. I have had this phone week and a half now, moved to contract from a nokia 3100. this phone is substanially big, but good features. Battery life is awful, needs charged every other night, would recommend buying another battery. Camera not bad quality, video and and bluetooth. Realtones etc, but buttons on screen are annoying. No external screen, so advisable to turn 'answer when flip opened' off so you can screen your calls. i am a teenager, so this phone isnt great for me, somethng smaller would be better, but will stick with it for 12 months and pray that by then Nokia bring out smaller flip phone with bluetooth.......

Just a reply to Glen of UK really, I too have a problem with my phone switching itself off and takes me ages to get it back on again. Not as reliable as I first thought. Also the battery life is not all that good, I never get anywhere near the 2-4 hours talk time, maybe half an hour if I'm lucky, then it needs recharging. Only had it 2 months and the supplier refuses to replace or fix, as they have a 21 day policy. Suppose it serves me right for buying it. Have been unable to get the email to work, not sure why, 02 can not seem to give me an answer and fob me off with "our engineers are aware of the problem and will get back to you once it has been rectified", three times I have now had this message and still can't send/receive email.

Just got this phone, first looks were great; it's light, and has a distinctive design. The applications and features are good, camera and video quality are decent, music is alright although I'm not really into music. Also John, this phone uses a special Reduced Sized Memory Card, I've searched for a site which sells them and this looks decent. (http://www.mobymemory.com/RSMMC_Memory_Cards.asp)

I am an amateur Mobile Phone tester & after conducting all sorts of R&D on this Phone, it seems to be a perfect Phone without any glitch. There are also many coool applications like FExplorer which can be used rather than the traditional File Manager that comes pre-installed with the Phone. There are also many other free apps available on the Net that can be installed & everything seems to work fine. The only loophole I found in this Phone is the MP3 Player, as the Sound Quality & Baaz effects are tooooo poooor compared to the awesome Sound Quality of the Inbuilt Radio. All in all an Excellent Phone.
