Nokia 6101


Rarely the company of Nokia gives a treat to its users by producing clamshell phones, as it more stakes on classical candybars. Nokia 6101 is one of such devices designed as a clamshell with an exterior antenna, two colour displays and a VGA camera....

A coupled volume button settled on the left surface, and a PTT one features the right side, all the buttons are rather tough, and pressing is followed by a loud click. A little below the PTT button an IrDA button is placed

Nokia 6101


Nokia has seemingly gone back to basics with their latest entry to mid-level mobile handsets and the 6101 is no exception. Sporting one of the best ex...

Excellent external screen, Comfortable keypad, User-friendly menu system, Well built

External antenna, Only 4.4MB internal memory, Poor quality camera

A top quality external screen with a user friendly interface and superb controls make the 6101 a more than solid entry into the market.

Nokia 6102/6101


A solidly built, easy-to-use, basic flip phone with a few interesting features.

Sturdy. Loud. Good PC connectivity.

Some volume fluctuations in earpiece.

Nokia 6101 review: Nokia 6101


Nokia 6101 Nokia doesn't focus on flip phones, so the previous flip models we've reviewed--the Nokia 6170 and the Nokia 7270 --didn't impress us. Now with the Nokia 6101, however, Nokia has made a more successful attempt at the flip-phone form factor....

Stylish design; solid battery life and call quality; speakerphone.

Slippery keys; dim LCD; limited camera options.

The Nokia 6101 offers admirable performance in a new form factor despite a dim display and a slippery keypad.

Nokia 6101 review: The Asian way


After having launched several angular clamshell models made of various materials Nokia comes to surprise us with a pretty average-level phone with rounded edges and plastic cover plates. Yet, the functional equipment of the 6101 model is so rich (i.e....

You can imagine how big our surprise was when in February this year we first saw Nokia's new rounded clamshell phone with plastic covers; it looked like any other common mobile phone on the market. No matter if we like it or not, however, this phone is...

Nokia 6101


Nokia has gone back to basics with the 6101 clamshell -- a well-made, easy to use phone that proves the value of doing the simple things well.

Finger-friendly keypad ; Intuitive menu design ; Very easy to use

Battery cover easily scratched ; Large external antenna ; Camera performs poorly in low light conditions

The 6101 is a great combination of simplicity and style with the camera, PTT and game functions putting the fun into functional. It is a phone equally suited to young and old, and its simple user interface doesn't intimidate or frustrate. A solid...

Nokia 6101


From a distance the 6101 looks a little heavy and stylish in a macho way.

Clamshell Design, Compact, FM radio, Push To Talk

3.5 MB memory, No expansion slot, No, Bluetooth, Little overpriced

Nokia 6101 Review


Sturdy flip phone, looks like it could last years, Above average battery life, Very Good speakerphone, though only half duplex

The 4-way navigation key is not the best, but quite acceptable, Speakerphone and earset volume a bit low

A well-balanced phone with an above average design quality.
