Nokia 6131

Though Nokia has been a bit unsuccessful with the clam-shell design of mobiles, the Nokia 6131 has definitely paved the way for betterment. Though one may not really call it ‘slim’ in the crowd of sleek Motorola and Samsung phones, Nokia 6131 definitely doles out an impressive design and an appreciable performance. It has an external display screen, a 1.3 MP camera, stunning internal screen display, etc. It is available in four colors - Black, White, Red and Sand.
 
Design
The design is simple, elegant and gives a classic yet a contemporary look. The phone is big, compared to ultra thin cell phones that are available in the market. The phone weighs around 112 grams which makes it quite sturdy to hold, but won’t really feel heavy. The design is such that the upper flap is slightly smaller than the lower flap and its end rests at the edge of the lower flap, making it quite interesting to look at! The keypad is easy to use and the leather-like finish on the cell phone makes it really soft to touch. The short-cut buttons for camera and volume are placed at the right spots, though the power button is at the side, causing a bit of confusion to those accustomed to the top button.
 
Features
The Nokia 6131 comes loaded with a wide range of multimedia as well as business related features. The color display of the screen deserves a special mention here. With a 16.7 million color display, the screen looks fascinating and vibrant. The 1.3 mega-pixel camera comes with an 8x digital zoom, but there is no flash. The pictures are quite good with rich color and contrast. While the camera is on, you can shut the flap and take a self-portrait. You can increase the internal memory by adding a microSD card for storing photos and music. The phone also has FM radio for all those who love listening to the radio while doing other work. The battery is impressive enough with a talk time of more than 3 hours and stand-by time of 240 hours. This is definitely one of the best clam-shell phones from the Nokia pavilion that boasts of not just style but performance as well.
