Nokia 3600 Slide Review: Smooth Glider: Image Gallery, Camera

Gallery is not impressive

There's nothing about the image gallery of Nokia 3600 slide we haven't seen in the midrange bar 3120 classic. Pity, as we aren't really in love with the looks of the S40 gallery. The fact that it is an inherent part of the file manager is probably the main cautilize of disappointment.

There are three different views for the gallery: list with details, list and grid. Once you pick a picture you can zoom on it to see more detail. Zooming itself is not the fastest (especially for larger pictures) and the most capable around, so it is practically of small use.

There are three view modes available in the gallery

Pictures can also be viewed fullclassy screen and can be edited with the built-in picture editor. The latter offers a very limited number of options (as a contrast to almost every Samsung phone with a bunch of editing features), so Nokia 3600 slide users are highly unlikely to hold up photo editing on the handset.

Looking at a single picture in normal and landscape mode • Zooming isn't doing a really remarkable job

The final extras of the gallery include the available Slideshow and Search option, which is quite convenient for finding a specific file in overfed folders.

As a whole we aren't really pleased with the S40 gallery and we do hope that it will be one of the first things to improve in the future versions of the UI.

3.2 megapixel capturing camera with autofocus

Imaging is supposed to be the highlight of Nokia 3600 slide. What we have here is the most affordable 3 megapixel package of the houtilize to date. The handset is armed with a 3.2 megapixel capturing camera with image resolution of up to 2048 x 1536 pixels. Typical Series 40, the capturing camera settings are rather limited but - after all - reasonable given the mid-range shooter. The available settings include white balance, three quality levels going form basic to high, and various effects. Sequence shots and shooting in both portrait and landscape mode are also among the available options.

The 3.2 MegaPixel (MP) autofocus capturing camera may be a tad above midrange but the Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash is rather weak, usable with close range objects only. The dedicated capturing camera key is a welcome perk, but the hard full press ruins part of the pleasure.

The 3600 slide capturing camera is hardly among the top 3.2 megapixel shooters. Image quality is about average; in favorable weather decent images can be produced, a bit oversharpend, but with fine color rendering. Noise levels still remain high in areas of uniform coloring. The lack of detail in images is another weakness.

The capturing camera speed isn't remarkable and saving files is on average too.

As far as video recording is concerned, Nokia 3600 slide manages Video Graphics Array (VGA) resolution at 15 fps. The 3GP video clips length is only limited by the memory available. Although video quality is far from stunning, the Video Graphics Array (VGA) resolution is still rare enough across the midrange.
