The Good High-speed downloads. Mini-USB for PC transfers. Compatible with all 3G networks.

The Bad 2-megapixel camera takes poor shots. 2.5mm headphone jack.

The Bottom Line Nokia's 6120 is a good all-rounder with fast Internet access at a very attractive price -- the camera isn't great, though.

The Nokia 6120 Classic is the first handset we've seen compatible with all the 3G networks in Australia, including Telstra's Next G network. It's a slimline smartphone appealing to those seeking a reliable, easy-to-use phone.

Design
Nokia's kept things simple with the 6120. It has a classic candybar design, a glossy black case and curved edges with a silver trim. The loudspeaker is placed on the side of the 6120, which means the sound doesn't get muffled when placed on a desk or table.

Nokia is starting to come around to the idea of standardised ports on its phones -- the 6120 includes a mini-USB connection at the bottom for data transfers. You'll still need an adaptor if you want to use your regular headphones as Nokia has stuck with a 2.5mm audio jack.

The 6120's keypad seemed a little bit cramped initially, but we adjusted to it during our test period. Navigation is painless with a four-way directional button under the screen and two soft-keys for various shortcuts. As usual, the camera can be fired by pressing a button on side of the phone.

A 256MB microSD card is supplied that can be easy swapped out on the side of the phone.

Features
The 6120 sports two cameras -- a 2-megapixel one on the back for taking photos and a lower-res one on the front for video calls. There's an LED flash on the back and nightmode to assist taking shots in the dark. Panorama shots and video capture are welcome additions. The camera's sequence mode lets you fire six shots in rapid succession -- about two per second.
