Nokia 6131 review

 

Unlike most Nokia handsets, which use the standard phone shape or slide open, the 6131 has a flip-open clamshell design.

Nokia 6131 Review

 

Ahhh not since the days of the teenage ninja mutant turtles has a sweeter shell been seen in the Lordpercy offices. But the 90's were back as the Nokia 6131 in it's clamshell joined us on test.

Nokia 6131

 

First handset that has the right to call itself bestseller and long-liver of Series 40, 3rd edition is Nokia 6131. This model has gathered a series of technical innovations. It is presented in clamshell form-factor, which is a priority for Nokia due to...

Camera

The 6131 is an outstanding mobile phone with a high quality display and excellent keypad. Its camera is the only letdown of a handset that has a long features list considering its asking price.

Nokia 6131 review: Highly addictive

 

Nokia has prepared an excellent new phone, which is not only attractive, but also well equipped with modern capabilities. At a pretty competitive price you get a black-silver clamshell with two top-class color displays, automatic opening system, a...

Nokia has managed to design and manufacture a solid phone with good technical qualities. The joint shows an insignificant gap, but is generally solid enough

Nokia 6131

 

An extensive feature set including a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, microSD storage, and a screen that supports 16 million colours, is implemented on Nokia's elegant 6131 flip phone.

Vibrant 16.7 million \"true colour\" main display ; Internal aerial and stylish slim design for business-use ; Large internal keypad for ease of use ; Great e-mail support ; microSD expandable memory

Like most Nokia phones, no USB cable is included in the box ; Flip mechanism can be a little touchy ; Lack off 3G features

Nokia 6131 Concise Review

 

The 6131 is a typical mid-level phone and the only thing that stands out in its specifications are the diplays' supported colors. Yet they do not look that good in reality. It's big-sized and relatively well built, and the opening mechanism is a big...

Big display size ; Solid built ; Good ringing volume

Big physical size ; Low camera quality
