Nokia have never really hit it off with clamshell phones - and unfortunately the Nokia 6125 is another demonstration that Nokia don't quite get it when it comes to this type of handset.

Admittedly, the Nokia 6125 does have some appealing features. It has quad band GSM, EDGE, Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel camera, expandable memory using microSD cards and an FM radio. The design is understated and smart, and the antenna has been tucked inside the case.

So quite why Nokia chose to ruin a promising handset by only equipping it with a basic 128x160 pixel display is a mystery, and given that most multimedia clamshells seem to have external media controls (such as the Sharp GX40 and Samsung E730)then it seems to be a little crippled in that respect too.

The screen is the thing that irritates us most - Nokia have supplied the 6125 with what appears to be a decent camera, plus there's a web browser with support for Flash, an email client and video playback, but the screen resolution on the 6125 is frankly not good enough to support these useful features.

 Nokia 6125 Then, Nokia equip the 6125 with expandable memory, a versatile multimedia player and radio plus stereo Bluetooth - but they don't include any dedicated multimedia keys.

It's not as if the Nokia 6125 is particularly lightweight - at 98 grams it is no lighter than the hugely more capable Sharp GX40, for example.

It's very hard to figure out what Nokia hoped to achieve with the 6125. It doesn't quite cut it as a multimedia phone, the limited display limits it as a camera phone, the battery life is too short for a business phone and the looks are far too conservative (i.e. dull) for a fashion phone.

On the plus side, Nokia say that the 6125 will cost around 230 before taxes and subsidy which is pretty good value. When you take the price into account, the odd mishmash of features doesn't look so bad.. but we just wish that Nokia could get their act together and come up with a clamshell phone that's as good as other handsets in their range.
