What's wrong with the 6720 classic?

Hello everyone!

I am surprised that there is nearly no discussion about the 6720 classic here.

My girlfriend is thinking about buying it as a replacement for her aging Sony Ericsson K800i. The 6720 classic seems to be a great phone which perfectly meets her needs:
  • Symbian S60 3rd Edition 3.2 being a solid, more advanced software platform (compared to SE's proprietary platform)
  • 5 MP camera being above the 3.2 MP of her SE K800i
  • GPS and Nokia Maps for navigation in new cities
  • reliable contacts and calendar programmes (which can be synced over-the-air with Google's respective products if this is wanted)
  • noise cancellation technology
  • fairly small candy bar form factor
  • reasonable battery life (also after a 50% discount on Nokia's claims)
  • support for microSD
Wifi is not of that much importance to her as the mobile phone primarily is about calls, text messaging, spontaneous photo taking, and little web surfing when one is on the go.

And for its very reasonable pricing, even I could consider preferring a 6720 classic over several current E-series devices (primarily the E52).

Is there anything we have overlooked? What's wrong about this device that it's rarely discussed here?

Will there be an AAS review?

I just discovered the 6710 Navigator. Are there any distinct differences between the two apart from the 6720 classic's lack of WLAN?
