CJ’s early look at the Nokia 600 and Symbian Belle (p)review

| September 7, 2011 | 7 Replies

Warm up your scrolling finger as this is a big article from CJ. And it’s just a preview – not his usual ‘Ye Giant reviews”. ZOMGitsCJ, whilst a Nokia fan is also a multibrand mobile site so gives fair opinions on all things mobile. There are TONS of screenshots for you to check out in his article. Below is just a quick summary of some key things.

  •  styling on the Nokia 600 takes some getting used to.
  • Build quality is “solid, very solid” for intended Nokia 600 audience.
  • As noted before in CJ’s other video, red key is the power key which he is not that fond of
  • He believes Nokia’s claims about the Nokia 600 having the LOUDEST speaker ever on a Nokia
  • EDoF cam doing an ok job (he proved it too with his sample pics)
  • TFT display decent enough – though as expected, not as good as AMOLED CBD
  • Homescreen looking more polished
  • Best part – Text reflow in browser, helps reading websites (no need to keep scrolling left and right)
  • Loving Radio without headset
  • Conclusion – pretty impressive for a budget midrange device. Hard to go back to Anna.
  • Just like GSM Arena yesterday, CJ wishes this was shipped much earlier, e.g. back in 5800 days think where Nokia would be. Jeez, if this was even on N8 on release it would be excellent. If this was on 5800, Nokia would have strangled Android and saved Samsung from ever getting sued by Apple because they would never have bothered photocopying the iPhone.
Question for Belle users – is the URL bar a single URL and Search bar, or do you still have to select search (and if you don’t you get stupid errors like in Anna)
