Nokia 6170 review: A new generation clamshell


The second Nokia flip phone got new untraditional look. It has stylish steel covers and by first reactions it's a success. Nokia, after years, finally produced a clamshell with large display and doesn't resist the new technologies – 6170 model features...

Nokia 6170


The 6170 is a decent, stylish flip phone for Nokia fans, but it is relatively light on features.

Good keypad. Good battery life. MP3 ringtones.

No Bluetooth. No e-mail.

I love it cause it looks great , works well and has everything i need in a phone.

Easy to use just like most Nokia phones. Great ringing volume Yeah i can hear this one ring.

The battery goes flat easily if you have a screen saver on both screens, other than that nothing.
