I cannot decide which of these 3 nokia phones to buy.

These are the features I'm looking for :

1. Good MP3 player with expandable memory to atleast 256 MB

2. Good quality Camera. Not necessarily a high resolution one because I have my 5.3 MP digicam for that ;)

3. Downloadable (and easily installable) Java Games

3. Atleast 65000 color supporting screen

4. Bluetooth

5. FM Radio (preferred but not neccessary)

6. Triband (preferred but not neccessary)

7. Large display must

8. Video Capturing capabilities (minimum 30 minutes video)

9. Easily customizable through PC software.

10. Easy availability of applications that can be installed


Any help would be highly appreciated !!! :cool:

Only the 3230 has FM radio, but poor (mono) MP3 playback. The 7610 also has mono MP3 playback.

Of these I'd pick the 6630. Otherwise I'd take the 6680, or the soon to be released N90. The 6681 is also an option if you don't need 3G WCDMA (UMTS).

Out of 6630 and 6680 which would you suggest given my list of wanna-haves ?

N90 or N70 would be quite costly when they come.

I prefer the look-and-feel of the 6680 over the 6630. It also has a 262K colour display vs. the 65K colours on the 6630, but that's not that visible/obvious.

If I were to do video calls, then the 2nd camera on the 6680 would be helpful, too.

The 6680 camera also has a white LED based "flash", which the 6630 lacks.

The 6680 has also the "Active Standby" view where the standby screen shows application shortcuts + calendar/todo data. I like to keep it turned on as well.

Otherwise there's not much difference & the 6630 should be cheaper.

OOPS !! I meant 6681 and not 6680. :rolleyes:

Then the only real difference is that the 6681 is an EDGE phone, but the 6630 is 3G (WCDMA/UMTS). I haven't used a 6681, but I like the form-factor better, but I'm so used to 3G speeds nowadays that I wouldn't like to use a non-3G phone any longer, if I can avoid it.

Hi Shobhit, You might have read my other reply (http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum/showpost.php?p=233772&postcount=10) to your other post.

Apart from that, and MP3 Player is your FIRST concern / requirement, this is a nice phone.

But, since you can, go in for 6630.

7610 is also good, the camera is fast. But I am not sure about the MP3 factor there as well.

6630 is a slight pain when it comes to typing SMS because of the curved keys.

Apart from that, that is a nice one too... Rather FAST processor, I do not know what the tests say, but a FAST phone. It has stereo without the headphones as well...

There is that QuickOffice that can let you work with MS Office Docs.

Take your time, my friend, take your time; lest you regret or feel cheated... Like I am feeling now...

I hope it, the mono, is NOT limited to hardware limitation and we users get an upgrade in some later FirmWare release, otherwise, my prime requirement, MP3 capability is LOST in the MONO din...

:(

Ra.

so far among the symbian phone, i think that 7610 is one of the great phones..

i'm a 3230 user, i sometimes regret getting this phone.. there are some fault about 3230 in other forum thread.. so you can try reading it..

even there are some programs & ways to fix certain bugs like for the camera, if any of you 3230 users notice, the pic is compress coz its in 1280x1024 not 1280x960.. so getting the ZUnfatCam program, that will help..

the sound level in 3230 is quite low & the mono playback is terrible..

I've tried 2 of my frens 7610 fone, I notice that their mono playback of song is not that bad.. even its loud..

thats about all
so think wisely before getting a phone..

for radio & mp3, its better getting an mp3 player with radio
even the 3230 seems to be the phone who has its all, but it lack quality..
