The "1-Minute" Review

The 6080 is basically an update of the Nokia 6070, although, if it wasn't for the new paint job you'd probably never tell the difference. The phones are almost identical as far as features and size go and both sport a VGA camera with video capture and FM radio.

If you're looking for a low priced, basic phone with decent looks, the 6080 is worth your consideration.

Solid Phone

Pros - sound quality - battery life - MP3 player - FM radio - camera - video camera Cons - no bluetooth - could have a little bigger memory

brilliant!

If you're looking for a cell phone to use as a cell phone, then this is the phone you want to get. its excellent. its small, robust, easy to use! There are no moving parts!

If you're looking for a cell phone to use as a cell phone, then this is the phone you want to get. its excellent. its small, robust, easy to use! There are no moving parts! So its not likely to break! Don't believe all the hype about flip phones, or slide phones, or any of those other tonka toy phones, they don't last! However this gem of a phone will! The battery lasts for ages, the phone's memory is plenty, and predictive text is awesome. And for the children, it even comes with a few games. Less

Had this for over 5 months now still working fine and battery life is still great. The front face plate looks nice and the back light is a bright white. A little to thick of a phone, for a guy it would look a little funny in your pant pocket. Recommend a holder for it. The number pad is little to be desired, the numbers are hard to see in sunlight. However they are easy to press for someone with big fingers because of the way the buttons stick out. The phone gets great reception. Very good phone for just the most basic of use. Has a great speaker phone feature, it is loud and clear. Makes use of the alarm and calender features very well. Down side, not great for sending text messages, no blue tooth, and may I repeat again the numbers are hard to see in sunlight that's the worst problem with the phone. Less

Pretty Kewl

The phone is great although it doesn't have an MP3... I had this phone for over a month now and i think its pretty kewl. Weaknesses: No bluetooth and not a flip or a slide.

This is a fantastic value phone; simple and easy to use yet comes with a few extras such as camera and radio...at a rock bottom price. Looks the business as well, doesnt come across as a 'brick' unlike other phones of the same dimensions.

i bought this phone cause it was nice, simple & really inexpensive. the problem is the keypad on the phones is extremely sensitive, whenever placing or receiving a call the buttons are randomly de-pressed without the user touching it. Nokia deny that this problem exists - but i took mine back to carphone warehouse & they exchanged it with a different model & advised me that the majority of 6080's they sold have been returned with this defect. before purchasing the 6080 i had the 6070 for a week which had the same issue. they are based on the same design which is probably why it affected them both. anyway - this is only my experience & im of the opinion its best to avoid these handsets.

I wanted a simple basic phone that also has a camera and colour screen, so basically nothing too old fashioned but nothing to flashy! This was the ideal phone, got a good deal on ebay, thought it was brand new but there was 2 photos on there, they could have been test photos taken, i dont want to jump to conclusions, the phone was in great condition and i got a free sim etc excellent service so 2 pics didnt bother me! Recommend it to someone who doesnt want something too technical but not old fashioned! Easy and quick to use, holds days if not weeks of battery, but then again, i really dont use it so if your a text maniac dont rely on that information! Fast to text, easy menu layout! camera bit slow but takes nice enough pics! also the charger is very sleek and stylish! Overall Very Good 8/10 Less
