As a member of the soon-to-be-moribund CDMA brigade, this phone gave me at least one reason to stick on with CDMA , not that this is a very convincing reason though !!


Why CDMA?


I stick on to CDMA due to net-connect, heavy STD usage (though GSM has almost caught up in STD billing, but roaming still remains the last bastion of CDMA) and 'CDMA inertia'.


I don't see why anyone should be on CDMA if he/she does restrained by any two of the above three reasons.


To summarise in lay terms in favor of GSM:




  • Good handsets across a wide price range




  • Operator Freedom




  • Airtime pricing no more high compared to CDMA (CDMA is no less now)




  • Now that Mr. Ambani is upto the GSM stunt, it makes CDMA a lesser contender to go with






*Now Nokia & 6275i..


*I bought 6275 for 10K (actually 9K, got 10% cashback on Credit Card). I think that Nokia should be chosen over


LG - for battery life and build quality reasons, though LG CDMAs are aggressively priced


Classic - Junk from China. To be ignored


Motorola - Too expensive in CDMA , though good on other counts (even worse than Nokia CDMA


pricing)


Nokia therefore is a safe bet.


*Finally 6275 Nokia





  • The only option around 10K price point in Nokia




  • 6265 sucks due to price and features are similar to 6265 (well most features that most ppl would care about, price arount 14K)




  • Good display (same 6300 Nokia, but 262K colors instead of 6300's 16 million)




  • Sleek and good looking (Am talking in CDMA terms only)




  • Netconnect speed decent when using bluetooth instead of cable for laptop connectivity.




  • Bundled with 256 K memory and a headset




  • Not very bulky compared to other CDMA's




  • CA-53 cable to connect to laptop configures in a jiffy using Nokia PC Suite




  • 21 MB internal memory sufficient for many apps




  • One can download Opera Mini browser and use it to surf on the cell itself. Quite good.




  • Music quality reasonable




  • Camera good + flash. Average in dim light. Good in normal light.






*Now Cons..


*- Bundled 350 mAh charger takes 3 hrs to charge the phone fully. Should have had a higher capacity charger. You will need to buy a separate charger in case you want 1 hr charging.




  • Radio is average




  • Menu grid is basic, unlike N Series and others that have a grid + drop down menu stucture (this is a s40 platform phone)




  • Vibrator is not strong, you might miss it if too engrossed (always keep the vol on max on this !)






All in all decent for CDMA.


Simlilar featured GSM should cost 9K(so 1K CDMA permium)


Charging time with the bundled charger quite irritating.


I charge twice in three-four days. (1 hr talktime and 2.5 hrs surf time everyday)


Go for it if you're in love with CDMA !


Hope I was useful.
