This clamshell GSM phone for the mass market follows in the footsteps of the 6102i and 6103. Improvements include a memory card slot, music player, stereo Bluetooth, internal antenna, lighter weight, quad-band roaming, and Flash Lite 2.0. Other features include a camera with video capture and a stereo FM radio.
In my opinion, the only negative part of this phone is its size. It's bulky, due to its thickness and overall girth. This is why I gave it a four out of five.
This is an excellent phone for much less than others with equivalent features.
Nokia 6085 is a good-looking phone with high quality entertainment features for the user to enjoy, because you get almost all the features that are usually embedded in today's phones, at a reasonable price.
However, Nokia 6085 features a low-end VGA camera with a maximum resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. More features of the camera include self-timer and image sequence.
Despite its low price, the 6085 includes few nice multimedia features, the best of all being Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP). The MMS message (Multimedia Messaging Service) can include photo or video with text & music or sound to complete the finishing effect.
Other features of the 6085 include: voice recording, voice commands, plus hands-free speaker; Macromedia Flash Player 2.
The quoted battery life is five hours talk time and 240 hours standby time, which held up pretty close to claims, though as usual, the use of the multimedia features will drain the phone quite quickly.
The 6085 is a very affordable phone that got most of the features that users would want from a phone today.
Overall, it is a good camera phone for anyone who's shopping on a budget. Weighing just 84 grams, the Nokia 6085 is very easy to carry around in a pocket or a bag.
Other pros -
Very sturdy build (just like other Nokia phones).
Camera is VGA but takes surprisingly usable pics with good color but plenty of grain if the light is low.
Quad band phone - works worldwide.
Built in speaker is good quality - works well as a speaker phone or for playing music.
Interface is totally customisable (big plus for me). I can now access bluetooth menu via one keypress.
Small in size. Flip design means screen and keys are protected by default.
I put a 2 gig card in there - plenty of storage for all the videos, voice, and pics - and the phone can be told to use this memory by default (very convenient).
Bluetooth works well with no issues using multiple bluetooth headsets from motorola and jabra.
Voice recording works well.
Bluetooth works smoothly - if you have a stereo bluetooth headset - this phone can be your MP3 player. Complete with customisable and preset equalizers.
Light and small.
Keys are large - easy to see - with solid tactile feedback.
Loud ringer - very convenient.
Good voice quality - both for the person listening to you and at your end.
Does not have a standard mini-usb jack for data. Charging also uses a custom jack. This is the ONLY thing I hate about this phone.
Doesn't "look" as good - but - what good are "looks" if the reception sucks (like my samsung)?
Video is a jerky and pretty low rez - but you can shoot for as long as you want with the memory card.
I only get 3 - 4 days standby with both my phones with some usage thrown in.
Radio needs use of a stereo headset (my mono nokia headset did not seem to cut it - not that I have use for a radio).
Screen was marginally better on the Samsung - but it rated a zero for poor reception.
No headphone jack - so I can't use my existing earphones for listening to music.
If you have reception issues - this is a phone to consider. It has all the features you will normally use in a small sturdy flip phone. Plus - everything works - and works well.
