Nokia 6210 Navigator Review: On The Road Again: Camera, Gallery, File Manager

It's a really nice capturing camera

Nokia 6210 is equipped with a 3 megapixel capturing camera with a maximum image resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. It sports auto-focus and Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash but no lens protection whatsoever. This means that the glass covering the lens is prone to finger smudges. However it's recessed enough to evade scratches.

Camera viewfinder and user interface

The trimmed down capturing camera settings may lack the ISO sensitivity setting, but there are 5 scene presets, auto-focus control, flash control, self-timer (10, 20, 30 seconds), night mode, automatic panorama mode and multi shot. Color effects (sepia, negative, black and white), along with white balance, contrast and brightness levels are to be found here as well.

Strangely, geotagging is not an option with the Nokia 6210 Navigator, which is a downcorrect waste considering the built-in GPS receiver. There is no option to apply gridline to the viewfinder either.

Some of the available capturing camera settings

The recent Navigator pulls off fine image quality, comparable to Nokia N78. The colors are precise and the noise is kept low, except in shadow areas. There is also more than enough detail and even foliage seems to come out well with the Navigator's camera. The sharpness levels are adequate, with slight traces of oversharpening at the edges or in contrast areas.

Have a see at the sample photos made with the capturing camera of Nokia 6210 Navigator:

As for video recording, the recent Navigator capturing camera shoots in Video Graphics Array (VGA) resolution at 15 fps captured in MPEG-4 format. Although this is a decent achievement, the quality is not that impressive. The modest frame-rate is taking the fun out of the nicely sounding Video Graphics Array (VGA) resolution.


Nokia 6210 Navigator offers a regular image gallery, with some nice improvements courtesy of Feature Pack 2. Browsing is now improved with the speed of browsing your pictures increasing if you hrecent the direction buttons on the D-pad longer. This allows quick skipping through tons of photos in a blink of an eye. Besides, the gallery has a much more conveniently placed shortslit for accessing the picture details. The pictures can be viewed in both portrait and landscape mode and can be zoomed in if you wish to see more detail. There's also quite a fine range of features in image editing. Browsing images is flawless; zooming in and out also doesn't suffer lags.

Image editing allows 15 modifying options

The file manager of Nokia 6210 allows you to do almost anything you can think of with your files. Copying, moving, creating recent folders - you name it and you bet the phone can do it.

The file manager

There is also an application manager to hold care of the installed applications on the Navigator. Not much to talk about here, as it is identical to the one in any other Symbian device. Its functionality boils down to providing details about installed applications, removing them and keeping a log of movements in either direction.
